Downloading paper designs.

Have discovered a couple of websites lately where you can download patterned papers and although some are decidedly dodgy, there are some quite cool ones too. Pink Petticoat is one that has some gorgeous inspirational designs on there and some of the kits are just amazing. I have started my collection wit the dotty papers and the Oh ChristmasTree sets. Loving them so far. This card is my first creation. I just LOVE black and pink together.

Unicorn party??

I have succombed to my 7 year olds wishes for a sleepover party next week for her birthday. I said she could have 4 friends and asked her what she’d like to do _ “CRAFTING PARTY, with UNICORNS” (her favourite thing). Have spent the last hour sprawling through the net sourcing unicorn themed stuff for her party. Why did I ask???

A rak from Kat – I am so touched.

After a random comment on a post I made on the Cricut forum the other day, a wonderful lady (KatfromUK) has posted me the most beautiful little card with some skittles, glue dots and stickles. I am so touched by the kindness in some people and it has really made my day.
Kat if you’re reading this – THANK YOU a million times!

Baby cards


A couple of baby cards I made a wee while ago. I just love the little stamp of the baby in the towel – it’s so cute. I put a bit of diamond glaze on the feet and duckie to make them stand out a wee bit. The flowers around the aperture are a tiny wee punch I have – sore thumbs after but worth it.

Acetate cards.




Have been playing around again with acetate this evening. Actually quite pleased with how they turned out but as ever my photography skills being what they are – they don’t look quite as good in the pics. Never mind.

Seasonal subject!


As we’re getting near to that time of year I thought I post one of my halloween LO’s I did a wee whie back. This is my wee Georgia dressed as a pumpkin at Church Farm. They have a Haunted Hayride there each year which gets better and more spooktacular every year. We are going to be in Turkey for Halloween this year so will miss out on all our usual festivities. Will just have to try to enjoy the beach instead!!

Tinkering with my blog!


Have a wee play here most days and today thought I would have a go at adding a slideshow! I have now managed to add 2 of them – hurrah! I have loads of layouts to photograph or scan but thought I’d start uploading some of my older ones onto my blog. This layout was published some time ago in Scrapbook Inspirations magazine. It is from our dream holiday (pre-kids) to Australia and Asia.

Handbags at dawn!


A little card for a girly friend who’s mad about bags and shoes. The pp is from the K&Co stack – can’t remember what ‘it’s called! Bags are a little Ellison die.

The sun shined today!!

I have a spring in my step today just because it’s sunny. Hurrah!
Did my Black and White christmas class last night. Had a great time and think the cards went down well.
This is a card I’m working on for my “Bling it On” class. Not sure if this is the finished article yet but I quite like it.

Floral garland – the wedding version.


Another sample of the garland card but this time all in white. I think I’m going to do a lot of my christmas cards along this line this year. Maybe try it with holly or different sized circles for baubles?
Hmmmm……..
