Simple, subtle Christmas cards are really appealing to me at the moment so I decided to make my own.

Just saying hello as I’ve been missing from blog land for so long. Hopefully you’ve all been doing lots of crafting while I’ve been gone because I have ūüôā ¬†And here is a little sneak peek of a card I’ve just completed. I’m having my first ever “team meeting” on Wednesday with the other demonstrators […]

I don’t seem to be able to find the perfect time to take the perfect photos of my creations anymore so I am making a compromise and just taking photos right now! This one is a Mother’s Day card but is a great card that can be changed for any occasion. ¬†Perfect for a birthday […]

Who’s been following along with my cards in the “hello series”? ¬†This is Card no. 3 so if you’ve missed Card no.1 and Card no. 2 make sure you have a look. In trying to include my least favourite colour, yellow, into my creations I discovered that it can actually look great! ¬†I added a […]

Another cheery hello to you today. ¬†Following on from yesterday’s “hello series” card no. 1, here is card no. 2: With my least favourite colour, yellow, combing with my favourite colour, red, I have found an unexpected colour combination that I absolutely love.

It matches everything. Next […]

I sometimes wonder why I even bother making cards for men as they don’t really appreciate it. ¬†So I have made a card that is super quick and doesn’t have all those frilly bits that they just don’t appreciate or like. Using some very basic colours, Red, Grey and White keeps it very simple. The […]

Continuing with my obsession with kraft / crumb cake, I thought I’d try something different. ¬†Butterflies! Butterflies aren’t different but for me these ones are. ¬†I don’t use butterflies much and I use glitter even less. ¬†So these are definitely rare! I stamped the butterfly image (All a Flutter) in soft suede then I used […]

Now this one is a direct case from Nichole Heady. ¬†I love this cute stamp set and just had to make this card as soon as I got it. And all the other cards she has made with the set are just as cute! The earthy tones of crumb cake (kraft), white and early espresso […]
