Welcome to my regular Sunday trip into the back issues of Clarity’s Craft Club. Today it’s the turn of the ‘butterfly tangle’ die from July 2021. The ‘blue butterfly’ inspiration photo and colours at The Card Concept were perfect for today’s card, which I’m also going to share with Happy Little Stampers‘ ‘anything goes with… Read More Clarity Craft Club lookback – butterfly tangle die
Hello everyone and welcome to the 900th post on this little blog! I can’t believe I’ve been sharing my crafting creations and thoughts for the last three years – thank you for sticking with me! Today’s card is a first outing this year for the ‘pansy’ dies from Stampin’ Up! I thought of these when… Read More 900!
Hello there. My new ‘floral delights’ stamps from ClarityCrafts arrived this week, so I made a start on playing with them – well, it would be rude not to! I thought the ‘thinking of you’ set would work well with this week’s colours at Global Design Project and picked up the top row of foliage,… Read More birthday foliage
Welcome to my crafty blog! Today’s card features one of the ‘elegant ladies’ stencils from ClarityCrafts, which was already out on my desk from an earlier project. There’s a few more steps to this one than my usual creations (I think I’m just a lazy crafter at heart, which is why I love CAS designs!!)… Read More city girl!
Hello there! It’s Sunday again so it’s back into Clarity’s Craft Club – this week I’m playing with the ‘nested doily mandala’ from June 2021. I’ve pulled three challenges together onto this card.

Welcome to my crafty blog. It’s still too cold here in the UK for butterflies to be making an appearance, so I’ve settled for the ones designed by Hazel Eaton for Julie Hickey Designs instead. I’ve sat them on the ‘circle medley’ stamp to reflect the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and picked up two… Read More butterflies two ways
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’m delighted to have been invited along as the Surprise Birthday Guest at Seize the Birthday‘s new challenge – this week the ‘extra topping’ is to make a ‘card for a child’, but you can just play along with the regular ‘anything goes’ theme if you prefer. I’ve gone with… Read More Seize the Birthday challenge – card for a child
Hello crafty friends. I’ve been playing with one of my favourite Clarity dies today – the ‘deerscape’. It’s great for masculine cards – I’d usually cut the die into black or dark brown card, but went with a kraft version this time inspired by the colours in The Card Concept‘s photo (the plants also made… Read More deerscape birthday
Hello there. Well, after yesterday’s dip back into Clarity’s Craft Club I’ve come right up to date with their latest stencil from last month. I took the colours from Just Us Girls and the ‘along the edge’ theme from AAA Cards I started by attaching the stencil to a strip of white card with low… Read More floral swirl
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’ve brought out the ‘framed florets’ set from Stampin’ Up!, which I haven’t used for a little while. The palette at Colour INKspiration immediately said ‘flowers’ to me and I took the layout from Freshly Made Sketches which I rotated. I’ve also picked up the embossing challenge from Can You… Read More flowers & wings
