Forever Greenery Double Z-fold Card

It’s been a while since I’ve made a double Z-fold card and it was a nice way to use up some of this gorgeous paper that is retiring soon. I’m quite pleased with how it turned out.

Turtle Card

I’m really upset that this suite is retiring too soon and wish I had bought it earlier, so I could have brought you more projects with it. For this card I didn’t want add too much or it would detract from the lovely paper and unfortunately the photo doesn’t show you the turtles and sequins in their sparkly glory 😀

Stamp the turtles and fussy cut them.

Blend the ink using Wink of Stella.

Tip 1: As these are photopolymer stamps you should use a mat under your cardstock to get a clear impression

Tip 2: Put a little liquid glue onto your silicone mat and pick up the sequins with the putty part of the Take Your Pick Tool to dip them in the glue.

We also have available for a limited time The Bouquet of Hope Paper Pumpkin kit

These products are available whilst stocks last, but if you miss out, fear not we have some great new products coming when the new catalogue goes live on the 4th May. Check out my shop for all the retiring offers.

We also have a great new joining offer when the catalogue goes live, but I will explain more about that another time.

Until next time, happy crafting

Dorset Scrapbook Page

This is my second attempt at a scrapbook page. The photos are from when I took my youngest two children on holiday to visit my parents. I rarely remember to take photos and when I do I don’t print them off, so I wanted to do something that would preserve the memories. You may have noticed that I made a slight error and put the S the wrong way round 😆

Until next time, happy crafting

Forever Greenery Milk Carton

My extended family are dotted around the South of England and with the current situation we have not been able to see them. My eldest daughter, Anastacia, lives 169 miles away in the South West of England and I haven’t seen her in nearly a year and one of my sisters who lives around the corner got stuck in The Canary Isles for quite a while. Anastacia decided that even if we couldn’t all see each other that we could still have some fun together. She set up a family challenge page where a different member of the family sets a challenge each week. There are 13 of us taking part with various ages from 71 down to 11 we have had a variety of different challenges including writing a family anthem, short story, building a house, movie poster and edible craft and the entries have been creative and varied. It was one of the challenges that inspired me to make this project. Ho

I haven’t played with this suite in a while, so will definitely have to have another play soon.

We have a new catalogue coming in May, which means we will be saying a sad goodbye to some of our favourite items including the 2019-2021 In-colours, Roccoco Rose, Purple Posy, Terracotta Tile, Seaside Spray and Pretty Peacock. But fear not, there are lots more exciting things coming in the new catalogue. Don’t forget that some of the bundles that are in the current catalogue will be in the new catalogue, but no longer at the 10% bundle discount, so make sure you get those discounted whilst you can. You can check out the last chance products in the link below.

Until next time, happy crafting
