All Geared Up To Celebrate

Hello everyone. Once upon a time, I used to be a petrol head! Also known as a gear head!! I loved tinkering with cars with my Dad (which is probably why my Mum failed to teach me how to knit) and I used to be involved in safety and timing control for international car rallies; […]

Fun Fold Friday – Father’s Day card

Hello everyone. I’m really enjoying making a fun fold card for my Friday blog posts. This week’s diagonal fold card is one that doesn’t use up more card or paper than a normal card, especially when you can make 2 at the same time… For the Father’s Day card I’ve used an image from the […]

Come Sail Away scrap buster card

Hello. I hope you are well. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only person that keeps little bits of pretty papers, am I? Well, if you’re looking for a way to use some up why not try a card like this one… I made my standard card base from Whisper White Thick card measuring 21 […]

Well Written Happy Birthday

Hello. Today I want to share with you the card I made for my husband’s recent birthday. He’s not a man for a lot of fuss so I kept it clean and simple. As my old favourite Happy Birthday die has retired I used the Well Written dies instead… I used the new 2019-2021 In […]

Relax Your Way!

Hello. As promised in yesterday’s blog post here’s another card created with the new A Good Man stamp set from Stampin’ Up!… This is way more colourful than yesterday’s card, isn’t it? But it’s still not too difficult to achieve. I started with a Pool Party card base measuring 21 x 14.5 cm, scored and […]
