Merry Christmas Cards

Hi Everyone!

The thought run through my head today that I don’t make enough cards, and it is true.. I had a look back through my blog and it is sparse in the card department, so I intend to get back to my roots and make more of them…. starting today!

I got stuck into making Christmas cards, and I made a trio (all the same)

I want to make more in the coming weeks, then decide which one I like the best,  so I will hang off mass producing them until I choose my favourite 🙂


I did record a youtube video of this card being made too, which I will upload shortly


I used 3 x lovely distress inks for this card… Tumbled Glass, Weathered Wood and Broken China


The leaf die and the sentiment stamp are from Clearly Besotted Stamps, I also used some bazzill textured cardstock in a lovely blue colour as a mat between my layers

I hope you enjoyed today’s card, and I hope to be back with more cards very soon

Thanks for popping round

Boxed Card Set

I was up in my wee shed today preparing samples for a workshop that I am doing with Stampers Grove on Saturday 5th December 2015..

In the workshop we will be making a box set of cards, so that will be 4 cards, 4 envelopes and a cute little box to put them in, great little gifts ideas for friends and family

This little sample is a clean and simple version using a cute little scotty dog stamp made by Crafty Stamps, this is Stampers Grove’s own make of stamps 🙂


We will be using the envelope punch board by We R Memory Keepers to make the envelopes and box


There is a cute little belly band that keeps it all together..


The box holds 4 cards and 4 envelopes comfortably


They make such a great gift too.. I put several different sentiments on the inside for different occasions..

If you fancy joining me to make these, here is the link to Stampers Grove Website, where you can find the workshop schedule, workshop times, prices and also contact information.

As always, thanks for popping round

Darcy Wilkinson Sampler Workshop

YAY I finished my Sampler canvas finished today 🙂

I made this when I attended a class a couple of weeks ago with Stampers Grove and Darcy Wilkinson.

I still had a few bits n bobs to finish off, and did that today, I beaded the hanger, placed a beaded dangley bit from the denim pocket (bottom right).


It was a great day out and if you ever get the chance to go to a workshop with Darcy, i recommend you go for it as there is so much to learn and the projects are fun to make 🙂
