It's all happening today - My first YouTube video

Hello everyone

I have finally taken the plunge and done a YouTube video.

I cannot tell you how many practice videos I made, but I finally got there and this is my first one to be published.  😊

Please do take a look.   I will make some more and the more practice I get, I promise I will get better.

If you like this video,  please click the' like' button and if you subscribe as well,  you will see when I load the next ones.

Happy Crafting!


Yay! the new 2019 annual catalogue is here!

Hello everyone

Its finally arrived!  The new annual catalogue and I think its fab-u-lus!

The Designer Series papers this year are really lovely and there are some great new stamp sets.
There is just so much to like!  I cannot tell yet which is my favourite, but like Bruce Forsyth used to say to all the contestants on Strictly Come Dancing "YOU are my favourite!"

On Saturday 15 June, I shall be holding a Catalogue Launch party in Bideford, where you will be able to see some of the new bits and bobs and will get to make 3 projects using products that are new out this year.

If you live locally and would like to come come along, please do let me know, you will be most welcome to join our very happy band of crafters.

If you live a bit further away or cannot get there, here is a pdf of the catalogue, so you can download your own copy.


Of course, if there is anything you fancy, please click 'Shop Now' and you will be taken straight to my shop.

Thank you for visiting today.

A golden wedding anniversary card

Hello everyone

This is a 6" x 6" card that I have just finished to celebrate a Golden Wedding Anniversary.  Wow 50 years!

It's the first time I have ever done heat embossing on vellum.
It was so easy, I have no idea why I was worried.

The front vellum card front sits on a piece of Very Vanilla that has been embossed.

Lots of the products used on this card are retired... but just because they are retired doesn't mean they cannot be loved still.

Happy Crafting!

Here is a list of products that are still available

Everything is Rosy - a box for it all!

Hello everyone

I am loving playing with the Everything is Rosy product medley - sorry I have said that before - but its so true.

Now, I've made a box to keep everything in.

I used Melon Mambo and Night of Navy 12" x 12" card to make the box, and then added a peice of the designer series paper to the top.  I didn't even need to cut it, the box is 6 1/4" square, so it fits perfectly!

I included some envelopes and put all the die cuts into a cello bag.
Yes, its a bit of a squeeze, but everything does fit!

Now everything is together, so when I need a card I can pick out one of those I have already made, or make another

In case you have not seen my earlier posts, here are links to them.

Everything is Rosy product medley is coming

Everything is Rosy - not just cards

Hello everyone

Back again with some more projects made with the Everything is Rosy product medley.

Instead of cards, I thought I would make some 3d projects, I just needed to add a few extra bits.
So here is a mini handbag, a decorated Kraft pillow box, a decorated Tiny treat box and 2 decorated paperclips.

... and after all this, and all the cards I've already made.. I've still got loads left, and of course I still have the stamp set and dies.

Everything is Rosy product medley - focus on Night of Navy

Hello everyone

The main colours of the Everything is Rosy product medley are Melon Mambo (my favourite pink) and Night of Navy.  I thought I would make some cards in just Night of Navy.

Love how Night of Navy looks fab with Rose Gold.

Watch out for more project tomorrow.

Everything is Rosy - more cards

Hello everyone

I am having so much fun using the Everything is Rosy product medley.

Here are some more cards

These three were created using the stamps and matching dies for the flowers and the leaves.


 For this one, I die cut the leaves in the Rose Gold miri and fussy cut the flowers from the pretty Melon Mambo and rose gold designer series paper

This one used the edge die to decorate the stamped panel.

Lots of stamping on this one:

Dont' forget the Everything is Rosy product medley is only available in May or while stocks last.

Watch out for more projects tomorrow!
