Hi there, welcome to my website which is my way of sharing my crafting journey with the world. I have been a creative person for virtually all of my life, and, like many, have had a go a pretty much every form of creative craft at one time or another. Nowadays I am predominantly a paper crafter making bespoke cards for friends and family and their friends. My passion is die cutting. I am lucky to have a number of different die cutting machines and thousands of dies. I also, when the mood takes me, like to write the odd verse or two. I also share pictures of my makes on Pinterest and on my Facebook page, both of which you will find by clicking on the links.

Stamping My Mark – Free Digi Stamps from Craftworld

I’ve been a member of Craftworld for quite a few months now and recently upgraded to premium membership. One of the benefits of being premium is regular free downloads of Digi Stamps and 10 o/0 off all Craftstash purchases. I have to say, apart from Craft Artist Software, I’ve never really bought into the idea of digi stamps but I am learning fast. I took my time downloading the files and organising them so I can find what I want and have now had a day or two to play. Here’s what I came up with. I started by making two digital layouts for click & print cards as playing digitally didn’t involved wasting any card or other supplies. I kept things simple but am quite pleased with the results. Feeling a little more confident I ventured into print, selecting first the images I wanted to use and then Sizing them to what I felt would be appropriate. I printed the images and coloured them with Prisma brush pen watercolour markers (a new acquisition). I learned quickly that watercolour markers are not the best medium for colouring inkjet printed images as the ink can smudge. Still, I’d started so I finished, taking care not to get things too muddy. After some fussy cutting I had two lovely summer themed cards. think I could get used to using these. I love that you can resize the images to suit your project and will explore other colouring mediums.

Turn & Turnabout – Inspired By Concord & 9th Stamps

I absolutely love the Turnabout stamps by Concord & 9th and have a few of them in my collection. I love the concept of being able to create lovely colourful background patterns using up to 4 different colours of my choice. I have lots of small stamps in my stash and wondered if I could make up my own versions using some of them. I failed miserably and soon realised that the placement of the different elements to make up the designs was much more difficult than it looked. Then one day, while window shopping turnabout stamps I had a brain wave. Concord & 9th produce a pack of alignment guides for their stamps which worked out at around £7 for over 20. I figured I could use these guides to place my own small stamps on and thereby create my own version of a turnabout stamp. Some of the designs have all small designs while others include some larger elements so I tried a few. I am being brave and honest here as I’m showing you my first attempts. They are by no means perfect but are a start and I’ve learned a lot too. My concept did actually work really well if the execution was less than perfect. The trickiest thing was making sure not to dislodge any of the small stamps whilst cleaning in between rotations. I did have a couple that didn’t cling very well and were a pain. I know now for future reference, to make sure I only use stamps that have a good level of cling. Enough waffling here are the results of my experiments. See what you think.

Two For One – Best Bib & Tuxedo

I was recently asked to make a card for a couple who were both celebrating special birthdays. I’ve done lots of pop up box cards but never tried the tuxedo version so I though I’d give it a go for this one. I kept the embellishments generic and non gender specific. I used my newest alphabet dies for this, the Crealies Alfies 3 die set. They are fab for a good sized letter that doesn’t take up too much room and I love that there are shadow dies too. I had great fun making this and learned quite a few things in the process too, especially creating the internal tabs for attaching the pop up elements. It was really well received and I have another fold to add to my arsenal.

Once, Twice, Three Times a Birthday – 3 same but different cards for June birthdays

I had a few cards to make for June birthdays and wanted to try out some new dies. I ended up making all the cards the same but changed up the colour of card used and flipped the layout for one of them. I used my favourite Z fold for the cards, it’s a fold that guaranteed to give maximum mantlepiece appeal. I really love the Bright Rosa sentiment dies I used for these, I bought quite a few from Craftstash when they were on offer, they make such a statement on card fronts that not much else is needed apart from the flowers of course. The flowers are the Gemini double sided flower dies. I don’t have a gemini machine so only bought this one to try out on my Sizzix Big Shot. I found that by removing the wafer thin die adapter they cut just fine. I used older cutting plates just in case as the dies cut into both cutting plates. I’m really pleased with how they turned out and may add some more to my collection soon.

Don’t Worry, Bee Happy

How have you been during lock down? I found it difficult to concentrate in the early weeks and consequently found crafting difficult. I managed to get my mojo back a little by making rainbows for my windows and happy mail to send to friends and family. They were easy to make and were really well received. I printed rainbow ‘Thank You’s’ and laminated them so I could attach one to each of my wheelie bins. It was just what I needed to help me gain a bit more positivity. Have you made any special projects during lock down?

2 – 4 – 1 – Two First Birthday Cards For One Special Boy

I was asked to make birthday cards for my friend and her daughter to send to a very special Grandson & Nephew on his first birthday. It’s tough at the moment as they can’t see him up close or cuddle him while we are in lockdown. They wanted something special that would be familiar to him. It’s sometimes a challenge making more than one card for the same recipient, to end up with different cards. In this case all the more so as they both requested the same theme of his favourite show. Another challenge was create familiar images that he would recognise and yet not be exactly the same. I usually list the dies I have used to create my cards but in this case, not all of the dies are listed, especially for the 8″ x 8″ version as I lost count and track of which dies I used during my lengthy process of trial and error. Though I did use dies, there was quite a bit of snipping and reshaping to end up with the desired effect. My friend and her daughter were delighted with the end results and the birthday boy loved them and even recognised some of the characters.

Well this is now the third ‘Lockdown’ birthday card I’ve made. This time it’s for my sister who is my craft buddy sharing in my addiction to all things paper, card, die cutting and stamping. I always try to do something different and/or a bit more special for her using dies she’s not seen before. When you make cards for crafters you always know they’ll be more appreciated as they know what goes into making them. I used 2 different types of pearlescent card for this. The card base was made from single side hi pearl card. I thought it would be a shame to cover up the lovely finish on this so chose to use the Tim Holtz mixed media die as it cuts a lovely design and allowed the pearl finish of the base card to show through. This then dictated my theme for the card. To layer up with I used a more subtle pearl finish which contrasted well with the card base and was the same tone. For full size pictures and details of the dies used, as usual, just click on any of the images. Z fold cards are my favourite card fold at the moment, they somehow seem to make the card that bit more special. I struggled to find an appropriate verse for this so ended up writing my own which was relevant to us and to the times we’re living in at the moment. I have made some other lockdown birthday cards but can’t post pictures until after the birthday so watch this space. Here’s hoping that that by the next card making occasion we’ll be out of lockdown, until then stay safe and keep well.

This year your birthday’s different,

as we can’t go to the pub.

We can’t all meet together,

for some drinks at the Con club.

So we’ll celebrate by quizzing,

all together using ‘Zoom’.

A big night in on screen feels like

we’re all in the same room.

Us girls on Vodkas, G&T’s,

the lads can have their beers.

We can all sing ‘Happy Birthday’,

raise a glass and say three cheers.

But though things aren’t quite normal,

one thing always will be true…

You’re a very special sister and

we think the world of you.

So Happy Birthday Susan,

hope you have a lovely day.

Let’s look forward to the time,

when we can dance the night away.

Shaken Not Stirred – Birthday Card For My James Bond and Aston Martin Fan Husband

Having a birthday while in lockdown is not quite the same so had to make an effort with hubby’s card. He loves James Bond and also the cars in the movie. I tried to incorporate both themes in his card and used the Crealies Create a card set 1 to create an accordion style card. I used images from a La Pashe CD Rom to create the decoupaged cars and added glossy accents to the finished cars. For full size pictures and details of all the dies used to create this, just click on any of the images.

Saints Alive It’s Your Birthday

Happy St George’s Day Folks. My friend asked me to make a card for her cousin’s 50th Birthday. As his birthday is on St George’s Day I decided to go with the George and The Dragon Theme. The addition of a swear box is a private joke between my friend and her cousin. This is a good example of why having a handmade card means you send a unique and personal greeting on those extra special occasions.

Gatefold birthday card made for my Brother-in-law’s April birthday. I used  a Tattered Lace Magazine gift die as the main focus for this, it came with issue 55 of The Tattered Lace Magazine, I also used the Charisma that was included in the magazine adding glossy accents to the shirt buttons,  shoes, watch, belt and umbrella handle and mounting on foam pads. I used the colour scheme of the Charisma for the rest of the card adding cute shoe die cuts made using an unbranded shoes die set to echo the main focal topper.
