Rainbow Jammy Dodgers!

Yes, you read that right… as soon as I got my new Teariffic Pals stamp set from Time for Tea Designs, I knew I wanted to make a jammy dodger wreath… In rainbow colours! I used Gina K’s original wreath builder to help me stamp the images with even spacing. I started with the jammyContinue reading “Rainbow Jammy Dodgers!”

Tree of Life shaker card

Hi everyone! It’s been a while since my last blog post, as I’ve been so busy with work and childcare I’ve barely found time to craft, let alone blog!

I started by heat embossing the image in gold onContinue reading “Get well soon”

When I first starting cardmaking, I was only really interested in diecutting, and a little stamping. I was never interested in colouring, and certainly not critter cards. Yet, at the moment,Continue reading “Dandelion Wishes”
