It’s Sunday evening again and I’m back with another dip into Claritystamp’s new design club – this time it’s the ‘pot plant’ from June 2015. I’m not sure I’ve ever actually used this one, but thought it would work well with one of Clarity’s stencil vases and the ‘letterbox alphabet’ stamps that I’ve had for… Read More Claritystamp new design club lookback – pot plant #104
Hello friends and welcome to my crafty blog. Today’s card features one of my favourite fruits – I do love a summertime bowl of English strawberries (and they’re also a ‘free’ food on the Slimming World programme!), so I knew immediately what I would use when I saw the latest theme over at Time Out… Read More sweet strawberries!
Welcome to my crafty blog and my second post of the day. This one is a diamond wedding anniversary card that I was asked to make, and I’ve dug back into my stash of Claritystamps for some old favourites. I started with the word stamp that has 1 Corinthians 13 on it, and repeat stamped… Read More diamond wedding
Welcome to my crafty blog. Bit of a late post today with my weekly dip into the Claritystamp new design club – this time it’s the agapanthus stamp from March 2015. I decided to use it for a few of this week’s blog challenges. The colours are from Color Throwdown – for once I’ve stayed… Read More Claritystamp new design club lookback – agapanthus #101
Welcome to my crafty blog. Today’s card resurrects a few things that have been in my stash for some time – it’s always good to get more use out of sets I’ve had for a while. I started with the large ‘happy birthday’ die from Memory Box – this is such a useful one. I… Read More birthday boat

This month has gone so fast and it’s been such a great opportunity to be part of the CCAS team – huge thanks to… Read More fruit salad!
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’ve gone back to Stampin’ Up!’s ‘friends are like seashells’ set for today’s card, but this time made the starfish the star of the show (!) rather than the seashells. That might seem a bit odd, given that I’ve used the sketch and inspiration photo from Fusion Card Challenge where… Read More you’ve got a friend
Welcome to my crafty blog, and a new challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches. It’s a sketch this week, and my second one as their guest design team member for June. My new ‘pansy patch’ stamps were just perfect for this design, and I’ve gone with slightly more traditional colours this time round after… Read More it’s the little things
Welcome to my crafty blog and another Father’s Day card! My son has already bagged this one, as his dad a is fanatical amateur cricketer. It’s a bit of a mixture of products, but sometimes that can give you the best of all worlds! I started with the ‘cover drive’ die from Tattered Lace (that’s… Read More a cricket-mad dad
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’m back with a couple more Father’s Day cards – I’m definitely on a roll with this! This first one uses a retired Stampin’ Up! set – ‘Sky’s the Limit’, which was one of the first SU sets I bought. I’ve hung onto it as it’s so useful for masculine… Read More you send me soaring
