Happy Halloween

Hello lovelies!

I hope you all had a spooky Halloween! I know this is a little after the event but I thought I would share a couple of pictures and another card with you.

I go to one of my Zumba classes on a Monday night and we thought it would be a good idea to dress up, I went as a red devil (you can't see the horns in the pictures unfortunately - I had a tail too).

It was a really fun night and everyone looked fab! I managed to do the whole class with the wig on and wearing my Doc Marten's, plus the make up never budged - impressed!

Now onto another cute card...

What you need...

Patterned paper: Daily Details (#1314) 12 x 12 Spooktacular Collection - Bella Blvd
Card stock: white
Baker's twine: orange
Googly eye

This collection is adorable, the papers are double sided and filled with cute characters in bright colours set against black. This sheet has large journal cards on one side and the dotty pattern on the other. The journal cards are perfect for making cards. The pumpkin does have one eye open and I thought it would look really good with a googly eye stuck over the top.

Well that's me for the moment, keep warm and cosy and I'll see you soon! xx

Hello peeps!

I hope you are all good :o)

Over the next few days i will be showing you some cute little Halloween cards I created. These are so quick and simple to make, great for any last minute makes.

I love this one, it's soooo cute!

Items needed...

Card stock: black
Printed die-cuts: Halloween themed

The cute little mummy and border were from a 12" printed die-cut sheet called BOO! To You by My Mind's Eye. It was out a few years ago and I discovered in my stash. The 'Boo' is from another old collection by K and Company. You could also use any spooky stamps or phrases for this quick little make.

Thank you so much for calling by and I'll be back tomorrow with another cute card. TTFN! xx

Happy 18th!

Happy Saturday peeps!

I'm back with a cute card I made for Kate, the daughter of a friend. She has just gone 18 and I was keen to create a card using my wonderful Cricut® Explore Air.

Without further ado, here is the card...

Items needed...

Digital die images: Live Simply Cartridge - Flower Frame (#M45B2B)  - Cricut®
Vinyl: White - Cricut®
Card stock: chocolate, orange, pale pink, red
Card blank: 15cm white square
Gems: clear
Punch: corner rounder

It was great having a play with my machine again and I'm pleased with the way the card turned out. It was so bright and cheery!

I hope you like my little make, thank you for dropping by! TTFN! x

Party Pop-Ups!

Good afternoon lovelies,

Yay! I'm back! I've missed updating my blog, but things have been soooo busy lately. I still haven't had chance to make anything as of yet, but I wanted to touch base and say hello. 

Crafts Beautiful have recently showcased one of my past makes on Facebook. It was a set of three pop-up cards using the journaling Birthday SN@P collection from Simple Stories.

You can find the instructions and everything you need on the Crafts Beautiful website, click here to take you to the page. It does state on the project that they were designed by Amanda Walker, but I can assure you it was me :) They've got the designers name wrong - oops!

The great thing about journaling collections is that they have lots of printed pieces in handy card sizes and with lots of printed die cuts it is quick and simple to make a fab card.

Hopefully, it won't be too long before I'm back with a make. Thank you for stopping by!

Oh crab!

Afternoon peeps!

It has been quite a while since my last post. I am so busy with commissions that I don't have much time to craft for myself these days. 

I did consider closing the blog for a while, but then I thought that I would rather post occasionally than not at all. If I don't get round to making cards for myself, I can always share my magazine makes with you.

Here is a card I made for my Uncle Ted. I unfortunately missed his birthday (slap on the wrist) so I created this for him...

Items needed...

Stamps: Chubby Chum Pals - Paper Smooches
Promarkers: Ginger, Ice Grey 1, Sunset*
Card stock: white
Ink pads: Onyx Black - Versafine
Black fine liner

* Limited edition colour

I adore this stamp set and I love crabs (I live near Cromer which is famous for its crabs). After colouring him in red and ginger, I then used a blender pen with a fine nib added to lift off some of the colour. This helps to give the texture of a real crab. I added a simple border with a black fine liner.

I hope that you like my make and that you will continue to pop in occasionally to see if I've posted anything new. For my dedicated followers, I thank you so much!

TTFN! xxx

Happy Sunday lovely peeps!

I know I haven't been around blog land for a couple of weeks. I'm still busy with commissions, at this time of year we are even more busy as there is usually an extra issue to squeeze in. I've also been up to North Yorkshire for a few days to stay with my mum :o)

Here is another quick card made with a scrapbook collection. This one uses papers and items from the Spring Fling Collection by Pebbles.

Items needed...

Card stock: white
Die cuts: Spring Fling Cardstock & Vellum Shapes - Pebbles
Pearls: black

I adore this collection. It is just too cute. I love the mix of subtle colours and adorable images.

I hope you like this little make and I'll be back soon with another creation!

Thanks for popping by! x
