Sweet 60th

Good evening everyone,

Today I want to share with you this beautiful Card in a Box I made for my Sister-In-Laws special birthday earlier this year. As it was a special birthday I wanted to make something a bit different and I love how these Box Cards give that wow factor!

I used the gorgeous First Edition Pretty Posy papers and added the cute Belle & Boo decoupage images in amoung a garden of die cut flowers and butterflies cut using First Edition dies

I even had this card printed in Quick Cards made Easy and recived a beautiful butterfly punch too 😊

Butterfly Dreams

Good afternoon everyone,

Today I want to share with you this funky paper pieced background card I made using the beautiful +Trimcraft Ltd Simply Creative Sweet Dreams papers.

The background is created by cutting paper strips 1.5cm wide and arranging them on a piece of card in whats known as the Herringbone pattern.

I finished off the card by adding a few stamped butterflies and Happy Birthday Sentiment

I have put full instructions over on the Tutorial Blog, if you wish to take a look 😊

Special Wishes

Good morning,

How are we all today, are we all still loved up from yesterday?

Today I want to share this pretty feminine card with you made using the beautiful Couture du Jour collection from +Trimcraft Ltd 

I love how the collection has a vintage look to it, but the pastel colours make it look very girly and pretty.

For this card I wanted to create a clean feeling and so used a white panel to display the decoupage, making it stand out from the background. The white card was embossed using the embossing folder from the collection - with just a hint of patterned paper peeking out from behind.

You can find full step by step details of how I made this card and a full product listing HERE

Lets go Fly a Kite

Afternoon everyone,

Starting my new look blog off with a fun fold card today 😊

Yesterday was National Fly a Kite day and so I shared this cute Kite shaped Explosion Card over on my Instagram and Facebook. It went down well and so I thought I'd share it in here with you today.

I love how the inside opens up to show off the bright papers and just look at that cute bow tail  😍

The papers are First Edition Pick N Mix from +Trimcraft Ltd, also using their Twine, Grossgrain Ribbon and First Edition Scalloped Circle Dies.

If you fancy having a go at one of these yourself - pop on over to my tutorial page where you'll find the measurements and instructions.

Happy Birthday

Hi all,

Popping on today with a cute Tiddly Inks card I made a while back. In class every so often I get them to do a sketch challenge and this is when they also get to do a bit of colouring as well rather than using a topper. This is the sample I made for them to follow.

I used one of the gorgeous Wyrn stamps and teamed her with some bright and funky MME papers. a few flowers and gems just to add a bit of decoration and a stamped sentiment cut into a banner shape.

Here's the sketch and measurements if you would like to have a go yourself

Exploding Surprise

Hi all,

Thought I'd show you today a recent class card that I have taught - from the front it looks like a normal Gatefold card but when you open it up you get a nice exploding surprise.

As you can see with my class cards we don't tend to decorate much and the emphasis is on the actual folding technique of the card. So just a few flowers were added to the front of these cards. 

They went down really well and my ladies enjoyed making these.

I have popped the instructions on how to make these over on my Tutorial Blog
