Welcome to my crafty blog. I used to love making daisy chains when I was small, and thought I’d go back to those days and make a card with one using Julie Hickey’s ‘sweet daisy’ stamp set. I decided to go for a bit of a different colourway, rather then the usual little white daisies… Read More daisy chain

I’m back with my Sunday lookback through the Claritystamp new design club since I first joined, and I’m now onto the start of my second year of membership with the ‘robin’ stamp from December 2013. This month saw another change in the club with the launch of full colour printed… Read More Clarity new design club lookback – robin (#86)
Welcome to my crafty blog. Today’s card is looking ahead to summer (I know spring’s only just arrived in the UK!) but I couldn’t resist these beautiful butterflies from Julie Hickey’s ‘layering flutterbies’ set. They come with co-ordinating dies, but I’ve chosen to use just the largest and smallest of the butterfly stamps. I wouldn’t… Read More flutterbies!
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’m back with another Easter card – this time using the current ‘Gift of Hope’ set from Stampin’ Up!

Welcome to my crafty blog, and another birthday card. Today I’ve used the ‘Sam’s shapes 1’ set from Claritystamp, which were designed by the brilliant Sam Crowe. This set has the diamond, jigsaw, oval and rectangle stamps, each of which has an outline and a matching infill. I first saw the set demo’ed at a… Read More scattered with diamonds…?
Welcome to my crafty blog. This little blog is one year old this week – it’s gone so fast and I’ve learned so much! I decided to buy a little bloggy present, so have treated myself to some photoboards to give my cards a more professional look. You can see the first one in this… Read More happy birthday blog!
Welcome to my crafty bog. I can’t believe it’s Sunday again already but it is, so here’s my next offering from working back through the Claritystamp new design club.

Welcome to my crafty blog. Today’s card used the fab ‘fresh florals’ stamps and dies from Julie Hickey Designs – I love the clean fresh lines of the stamps.
