Baubles & Bling

I have another shaker card to share today, I tried to do something a little different for this one - not sure it worked though!

I cut the Christmas Ornament die from four different colours of Mirri cardstock and arranged them on a 7" square card blank.  I filled them all with four different colours of sequins and added a stamped sentiment that is also from the Christmas Ornament collection.


I had a lovely day shopping with my son yesterday, I was a bit disappointed with the clothes shopping but managed to get lots more storage for my craft room.

A Fun Filled Festive Season

I found this card hiding away in my draft folder!  I created it with the Hunkydory Festive Friends Luxury Topper collection that was part of the 2019 Christmas Blockbuster, I had forgotten all about it.


I used the Polar Bear Pals collection to create this simple card, I think it would be ideal for a child.


I am going shopping in Southampton with my eldest today, a little clothes shopping followed by lunch and then a trip to Ikea to buy some more storage for my craft room,  The re-organization is progressing well but why does it always take twice as long as you expect!

Winter Wishes

I didn't manage to post yesterday, I am in the middle of a major re-organization of my craft room and I really mean major! I have 10 years worth of stash to go through and I am really going to be ruthless and get it sorted once and for all so if I don't appear much over the next week you will know why.

I have another shaker card to share today, I used the Christmas Window Stamp and Die collection to create this card, you get stamps to create the view from the inside and outside of the window, I decided to look outside for this card.


I used Kraft cardstock and papers from the Nature’s Garden Poinsettia Perfection Paper Pad. The sentiment is from the Christmas Window Stamp and Die collection.


I inked the edges of everything, I think the patterned paper looks a bit like old wall paper and the inking adds to the vintage feel.  The ribbon, twine and pearls are from my stash,

Walking Ramsey

I though I would share a couple of photographs of Ramsey today, when he goes for a walk he loves to chase and carry sticks - I think he got a little carried away though!


I'm sorry that this photograph is a little blurry but he was running full pelt at the time!


We also met some swans on the path around our local lake the other morning, we decided to be cautious and turned back.


The next day they were swimming in the lake so we could do a complete circuit.


Thank you for visiting my blog today and thank you for all of the lovely comments that you leave - they are all read and very much appreciated.

Ornament Shaker

This is another of the cards that I created for the launch of the new Crafter's Companion Christmas Shaker dies - you can find them in the Crafter's Companion shop HERE.  I was asked to create some samples for the shows and this is one of them. You can find more cards using the Christmas Shaker Die collection HERE.


I used the Christmas Ornament die to create this card, you can create two versions of the ornament and there is a die cut sentiment and lots of sentiment stamps as well.  I used papers from the Nature’s Garden Poinsettia Perfection Paper Pad along with some matt gold Mirri, I fussy cut some on the poinsettias from the papers to embellish.
