Morning All! It’s my turn to share a digi stamp project over on the Little Claire Blog today and I have used the Folk Snowman 4 digi stamp to make a start on batch making some easy to post Christmas Cards

As not everyone is a whiz on the computer (or have someone who can help them) I also have a small tutorial on how to insert and resize an image and fill an entire page ready for printing and creating. To see this and the full details on how the card was made please hop over to the Little Claire Blog.

Let’s Bake!

Apple Berry (3)

Morning All! It’s my turn to share some Elisabeth Bell love over on the Digi Bells Blog today. I’m starting to make a recipe/baking book and I thought Apple Berry was the perfect image to use:

Apple Berry (2)

My style is bouncing all over the place at the moment I think it’s just how the mood takes me as I sit down to craft and as you can see I was in a frou frou mood when I made this one (well for me anyway!).

I liked the font on the chipboard letters but they were cork effect and didn’t match so I coloured them with a marker and doused them in glitter!!


  • Image: Apple Berry by Elisabeth Bell 
  • Colouring Medium: Copics
  • Card: Red, Blue, White and Kraft Card and Copic X-Press It Blending Card
  • Dies & Punches: Hobbycraft Heart Punch, Go Kreate Frilly Frames #10 Dies, Spellbinders Plain Circle Dies and Cutlery Dies from Whiff of Joy
  • Embellishments: Doodling, Doily (covered in paint), Glitter Glue, Flower Trim, Jute Mesh, Ribbon Bow, Pearls, Paper Flowers and Glitter Glue.

Whatcha Doing?

Whatcha Doing (5)

Morning All, it’s time for Tiddly Tuesday over at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog and we have a new challenge for you. Our theme this time around is Let’s Get Krafty, which is a big hurrah from me as I love to use Kraft card on my makes.

I originally made this card for our last challenge but my little triangles under the main image looked to0 much like a square (the challenge was no squares allowed!!) so I made another card knowing I could use this one for this challenge instead.
