Hello crafty friends. Today’s card uses up a few scraps and offcuts of card, thanks to the theme at Just Us Girls. I do know that some of these pieces might be a bit too big to officially be a scrap, but I didn’t cut into a single full size piece of card or paper… Read More birthday scraps?
Well it’s Sunday (it comes round so quickly!), so I’ve gone back into Claritystamp’s Craft Club for the ‘trio of flowers’ set from August 2021 – it’s a really sweet little group of stamps. As I usually do, I started with a square of white card. I ran a piece of masking tape across the… Read More Claritystamp Craft Club lookback – trio of flowers
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’m trying to get back into my routine after all my trips away over the last month, so have resumed my Sunday sojourns back through Claritystamp’s Craft Club. Today it’s the turn of the lotus flower stamp from June 2021. I started by creating the background with the large rectangle… Read More Claritystamp Craft Club lookback – lotus flower
Hello crafty friends. I’m back with another floral card today, and I’ve realised it’s a bit similar to yesterday’s offering, even though I’ve used completely different techniques!

I’ve used the ‘wonderful world’ stamp set, which is part of Stampin’ Up!’s current Saleabration offer. I started with… Read More one design, two cards

TGIF‘s new theme is exactly that, and I’ve just got time to get this card entered into Inkspirational‘s ‘favourite monochrome’ challenge as well. My friends won’t be surprised to see that this card features shades of teal! I’ve used 3 Distress… Read More a card of favourites
Welcome to my crafty blog on a very hot evening here in the UK. You definitely need a hat on if you’re out in these temperatures, so I decided the photo over at Fusion was the perfect starting point. I’ve included the central row of birthday, flowers & sequins from TicTacToe‘s grid and the optional… Read More summer hat
I’m back with a second card today, as we’ve also got a new theme over at Sparkles Monthly Challenges. Claudia is hosting and wants to see our shaker cards. Now you may not believe this, but I’ve never made a shaker card before (seen lots of them), so off I went to YouTube for a… Read More Sparkles shaker card
Hello crafty friends. I’ve had a great afternoon at a craft class with Marion Emberson from Sugar & Spice – you’ll be seeing evidence of that class over the coming days, I’m sure, but in the meantime I went back to Stampin’ Up!’s ‘pansy’ dies for today’s card. I’ve taken the sketch from Atlantic Hearts… Read More pansies
