Black and White Christmas


These are the cards I am planning to do in the Black and White Christmas class. Again, there is a lot of cricut and cuttlebug used but that’s because that’s my favourite thing EVER

"Birthdays and Beyond" Class

This class is designed to cover all “birthday requirements” so to speak. I have tried to include cards for a new baby, a child, a teen, a lady and a man.

Black and White Spots
This is a masculine card done simply with a punch and a bit of ribbon.

Butterfly Card


Black pearlescent card which is just gorgeous (size 6″). Flourish corners cut from black glossy card (Cricut – Storybook Font). Butterflies cut from cuttlebug cut and emboss set also from black glossy and bright pink. A few gems and jobs done.

Two Hearts
Cream 4″ square card. 3 strips of bazzil in contrasting colours, some brads a bit of ribbon and another simple card. The hearts are sizzix “Primitive Hearts” with the smaller of them being embossed with the cuttlebug “Swiss Dots” folder. A few gems for a bit of bling and that’s it.

Baby (boy and girl options)

Concertina cards done with fine ribbed cardstock. The letters are done with cricut “Plantin Schoolbook font” and then simply jazzed up with some gems, primas, buttons, ribbon and whatever else you might have lying around!

Floral Garland
This is another cricut/cuttlebug combo. The flowers are from Accent Essentials

Party Hats

A great card for kids. Doodlecharms cricut cart for hats.

Ooh, where does the time go?

Just popping on here to show to myself that I’m not neglecting my newborn blog! I have been busy making cards for my new enterprise which is teaching some classes from home. I will try to add some pictures if I can remember how to do it. Everyone has gone out to karate so I have one moment to “play” on the computer without feeling guilty.

How does one "make time"?

I haven’t done anything here for a couple of days so as it is the very first day of a new month I thought I’d add something. I am hoping that by this time tommorrow, ie, after the first day back at school, I will have made a plan for myself to get my crafting ass in gear. I look around at the creations that lots of people have been producing and they fill me with total inspiration. I just never seem to get the time to do it. My new plan is to MAKE TIME. As of today.

Ok, I know it’s August but I’m just playing.

One of my favourite LO’s. Christmas hugs. This is my daughter Olivia with her cousin. They are inseperable!

I know I’m talking to myself, but HEY it worked!

Not sure about the layout but at least I got the picture up.

Just testing


This is a LO i did as a challenge at my local crop some time ago. I am just trying to see if I have been successful at uploading and image or if I am a total numpty with this whole caper!

I have no idea what I’m doing!

This is my first post on what is a very boring-looking and somewhat sad blog. I have been sat in front of the computer browsing other people’s blogs and a thought popped into my head – “I could do one of those”. And so, some 4 hours later I am looking at a fairly dull black page onto which I have somehow managed to upload a photo but not really anything else. Over time I’m sure I will figure out what I can do to make things a little more,erm, pretty (what the hell is HTML by the way?) and perhaps even add some of my little creations along the way.

In the meantime, anyone who happens to be passing by, I hope you will bear with me and perhaps pop back again now and then as I continue on my journey into the the nether-regions of the blooging world.

Wish me luck……
