Always thinking of you

Hello. I enjoyed yesterday’s card for a sketch challenge so much that I decided to make another one. This time I’ve followed the layout set by Ian Potter in the Stampin’ For All Facebook group… I decided to use Pretty Peacock and Blackberry Bliss colours and the gorgeous Perennial Essence designer series paper and this […]

All Is Bright for a sketch challenge

Hello and thanks for joining me. Tricia Smith’s sketch challenge in her ‘Crafty Stamping Club – Smiths Crafty Creations’ Facebook group was exactly what I needed yesterday. I didn’t really have any crafty mojo but still wanted to make something. That’s where sketch challenges can really help with crafter’s block. You’ve been given the pattern […]

Bird Ballad chocolate box

Hello and thanks for joining me. Today’s project is a pizza box to gift chocolate… I love this Bird Ballad designer series paper even although I’m not really that keen on birds. I don’t do well with flapping wings lol. These little birdies do look sweet though. The box is made to fit two bars […]

Reinforced book style box

Hello and thanks for joining me. I didn’t know what to call this type of box but it reminds me of a hardback book where the pages inside are slightly smaller than the cover. The cover of my box is bigger than the actual box part inside… I made this one in Night of Navy […]

Layered card without using extra paper

Hello and thanks for joining me. I like the look of multi layer cards but they can use us quite a lot of my beautiful paper and card and can be rather weighty to post. Here’s my solution… I used the Stitched Rectangle dies to create my layers from just 1 piece of the gorgeous […]
