White on White Wedding Card

Hi Everyone, In my Crafty shed this week I decided to use white card only! Needed a break from making Christmas cards, the background was white card and using double sided sticky parer I spread some glitter over it!  I embossed the card stock using Sizzix embossing folders

Holly Love Christmas card !

Hi Everyone, In my Crafty shed this week i have been making my Christmas cards !  Im sad to say I dropped my Grand Calibur and broke it whilst making these cards, luckily it missed my toes :-)  

Again using serif and hybrid crafting, these cards are proving very popular and I too was pleased with the end result :-) the background has been embossed with a snowflake folder. 

Until next week Happy Crafting Folks!

First Christmas plain and simple !

Hi Everyone,

In my crafty shed this week I have playing with Serif craft artist 2, I'm a little embarrassed to say I've had serif for a few years and struggled to get into it, I decided to  invest in number 2 and have a weeks play with it and now i don't know how i managed so long without it!!  I've kept my design plain and simple mainly because that's my favorite design at the moment importing a few of my favorite images and a little hybrid crating from my saved folders! hope you like what you see :-) Until next week Carry on Crafting Folks!

Book Art

Hi Everyone,

Thank you all for visiting my page and as promised here is my Wednesday blog post. It was our first Wedding Anniversary  (Paper) last week, so I was struggling to think of what to buy my Hubby in paper, I decided to search the internet for a free download and have a go at page folding! and here is my first attempt. The instructions can be found HERE,  My daughter picked me a book up from a charity shop for £1.

I covered the book with decopatch, stamped the timepieces onto some card stock and heat embossed i and covered it with the decopatch glue to give a nice sheen finish. The heart stamp on the cover was a free gift from a magazine i bought last year. Why not follow the link above and have a go! it really is easier than it look!

Happy Crafting Folks!

Been away too long!

Hi Everyone,

 Id like to announce that I'm well and truly back crafting after 3.5 years being out of the crafty community we all know and love and just over 2 years since I last blogged!   I will be posting on my blog every Wednesday to show you what I have been up to in my crafty shed, it's going to be so much fun getting all my crafty stash out and see what I need to polish up on ha ha.

I wont bore you all with reasons for my absence other than to say its been a difficult journey and I have come out the other side still strong and a better person for the path I walked. Below is a picture of myself and John, we got married in New York last September 2014,  he has been determined to help me set back up to resume my crafting hobby, not to mention broke ha ha!! ( Thanks John).

Finally a quick thank you to my crafty friends for their ongoing support, I won't name them personally (they know who they are)

until my next post , Happy Crafting everyone
