Quick and Easy

Hello. Using pre-coloured Lili of the Valley image panels making a card doesn't come much easier than this! A simple background of patterned paper (maybe add a doily), paper flowers, a button or two and a pre-printed sentiment. Job done!

Ahoy there - goal!

I have two quick and easy cards for kids to share. 
Both using decoupage sheets and papers from the Whiz Kids collection by Trimcraft. Not something I'd usually use but I thought they were really cute and colourful.

magazine articles

Hello. Just popping on to let you know I have two articles on the shelves at the moment. The first is in Papercraft Essentials 139 using some gorgeous products from Craftwork Cards. The free gift with the magazine is 'The Festive Elegance' set - an embossing folder, a stencil and a super Christmas stamp set.  

The second article is in Designer Cardmaking - Joanna Sheen special. I used the stamps and die that are free with the magazine.

Both mags are great crafty reads and packed with inspiration. Go on, treat yourself!

be merry

Hello. I treated myself to some new Christmas stamps. Love these houses and couldn't wait to have a play. I gave them the watercolour treatment, trimmed around and job done. The background is a simple watercolour wash. Wait a minute, the background behind the background is patterned paper!

Still to crack open the Santa/Reindeer set.

happy halloween

Hello. Am I behind? Or just really early for next year? This is the card I sent to my swap partner for Halloween. The stamp is from a Penny Black set called 'spooky'. I think it's the only Halloween set I have so you will probably have seen a card similar to this on my blog last year!!
