Welcome to my crafty blog. I’ve been catching up with an online class from last week with the brilliant Julie Hickey using some of her new stamps, and I adapted this card from one of her demonstrations. I’m always in awe of what she manages to come up with. I’ve used the colours from the… Read More birthday circles
Welcome to my crafty blog. Today’s card uses the ‘birds and branches’ stamps and dies from Stampin’ Up – this is a really sweet set which works for a variety of occasions. I’ve used it for new baby cards in the past (the eggs and nest are perfect), but today went for a birthday theme,… Read More bluebird
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’ve got something a bit different to share today, with this card using the ‘sunburst’ layering stencils from Nellie Snellen. I discovered these through an online class last year with Marion Emberson from Sugar and Spice Crafts. I thought it was the perfect set for two of this week’s challenges:… Read More layered stencils

Welcome to my crafty blog. I’m a bit late with today’s post – it’s been a pretty full on day, but I’m now finally sat down with a coffee to write this.

I really like this little church image, which is not hugely dissimilar to my own church building, and of course the Bible verse in the set is perfect. I took inspiration… Read More gift of hope
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’ve finally managed to get myself into gear and start making my Easter cards – am cutting it a bit fine as they’ll need to be posted next week! Stampin’ Up! has got some great sets for religious cards at Easter (I don’t do bunnies and eggs…), and today’s card… Read More He is risen!
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. I’m now up to September 2013 in my weekly lookback through the Claritystamp new design club since I first joined at the end of 2012. This week it’s the turn of the ammonite stamp that was #83. I think I might have used this once when I first got it,… Read More Clarity new design club lookback – ammonite #83
