Welcome to my crafty blog and our new theme over at Alphabet Challenge. We’re now at the letter O, and Helen has chosen ‘outdoors’. I’ve gone with the stamp from Claritystamp’s craft club in April – love this little treescape. I started by cutting a square into a piece of copy paper with a die… Read More O for outdoors
Welcome to my crafty blog and something a little different with an autumn theme today. I seem to have produced quite a few cards with leafy themes recently, but wanted to combine the current challenges from Addicted to CAS and CASology I hadn’t used the die from last month’s Clarity Club, which is a butterfly… Read More an autumn butterfly
Welcome to my crafty blog. I got the Claritystamp riverside reflection masks out again today – I love playing with these as the cards always feel like mini works of art (speaking as someone who can’t draw for toffee!) and they meet CASology‘s challenge perfectly. This week’s theme over at As You See It challenge… Read More may all your wishes come true

This one has got a movie theme (I know, I’ve already given it away!) courtesy of the current challenge over at Time Out so I’ve gone with one of my favourite films.

Welcome to my crafty blog.

Welcome to my crafty blog. I’m back with my second post today, and it’s my second die cut card this week as well! These are such great little dies from Claritystamp – they’re called ‘quarterettes’ as they come in a set of 4 and are each 1/4 of the size of Clarity’s regular dies. I… Read More comfort!
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
Welcome to my crafty blog. Now at first glance, this card has got nothing to do with one of the challenges I’ve been inspired by, but this blog is nothing if not educational!
