Chill Out

Can you tell I am dreaming about warm summer days, the only trouble is, when summer arrives I will be complaining about the heat - there is no pleasing some people!


I decided to use my Mintay Suntastic collection to create this card, I used papers from the 6 x 6 paper pad and fussy cut the elements from the 12 x 12 paper pad, the sentiment and little banner are from the Cardboard Sticker sheet.  I used my Tattered Lace Fleurs dies to cut the flowers from some of the papers and added a twine messy bow.


I haven't spent much time crafting recently, it is so cold me and hubby have been lighting our wood burning stove and sitting in the warm reading and watching films - it makes a nice change.

Oriental Delights

This is the third and final card that I have created with my Hunkydory Eastern Wishes collection.  I have been using the Oriental Delights Topper Set.


I have used the smaller topper again, there are two of each topper set - it is a square topper, I cut it out with a circle die and layered it up with some of the A4 patterned cardstock and some matching cardstock.  I also used two of the papers from the Luxury Inserts and Papers collection and one of the A4 cardstock sheets.  I used my Tattered Lace Fleurs dies to cut the flowers and an unlabeled die to cut the foliage, the sentiment is from Lisa Horton Crafts.

Eastern Wishes

This is the second card that I have created with my Hunkydory Eastern Wishes collection, this time I have made a simple card and cut away all of the gold foiling that I don't really like anymore.


I have used one of the toppers, I cut it out with a circle die and added it to a mat that I cut from matching cardstock with a stitched circle die.  I also used one of the papers from the Luxury Inserts and Papers collection, one of the A4 cardstock sheets and a sentiment -  I cut the banners with my Die-namics Fishtail Flag dies.

Eastern Charm

I'm still trying to use up some old stash, this time I've used the Hunkydory Eastern Wishes Luxury Card Collection - I have lots of Hunkydory in my stash, lots from when I was on their Design Team and lots that I've purchased myself and I have to admit that I don't really like all the gold on them anymore!


I created this card using a couple of the toppers, you get two of each design so I decided to fussy cut some bits from one to layer up, I also used one of the papers from the Luxury Inserts and Papers collection, one of the A4 cardstock sheets and a sentiment.

I will share another card that I have created with this collection soon, I have cut away all of the gold foil to create a more simple card and am in the process of making another one without the gold foiling but a more fussy and fancy design.


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

Happy Unbirthday

I have created another card with my Stamperia - Alice Through the Looking Glass collection.


I used one of the beautiful patterned papers as the background and fussy cut Alice from one of the Card Collection toppers, I popped her up on the matching topper cut from the paper pad and added that to the card front using foam pads. I added the Eat Me label using foam pads and decorated the inside of the card with more of the patterned papers.

Christmas Critters

These are the final two cards and gift bags that I made for my son to give his pupils at Christmas, thank goodness for that I hear you all say!


I have used toppers, papers and sentiments from the Sara Davies Watercolour Christmas Collection from Crafter's Companion.


We had a terrible day yesterday, wet, windy and dark all day, a lovely sunny day is forecast for today, that's good old British weather for you!

Beautiful Lilies

I made quite a few purchases during the recent Crafter's Companion 16th Birthday Celebrations and I'm trying to make sure that I actually use them, here I am sharing a card using two of the collections.


I created the Easel Card base using the outline die from the Intri'lace Floral Fretwork Dies, and cut two panels from white cardstock using the fretwork die, I added some colour to them with Distress Ink and adhered them to the base.  I cut the floral centrepiece from the topper pad using the matching dies, it's a bit difficult to get them to line up so I ended up cutting two sets and used some of them as the stopper for the easel.  The little sentiment tag is from my stash, I think it was from an old card.
