Be Happy, Be Bright, Be You!

Hi Everyone..

I have a lovely wee cream and pink card to share with you today…

I missed 3 days crafting last week, due to birthday’s and I had a real sore neck/back, glad to report the chiropractor fixed me yay!

However, this has made me a little behind with making stuff, recording videos and blog posting, but I will get there.. there is no real rush.

For the card today, i used up the leftover strips of patterned paper from when I made the rosettes the other day, I glued them down to a sheet of cardstock to create a nice shabby chic panel for this card

be happy

Supplies List:-

  • Daler & Rowney water colour card for the base tomake a 5.5″ square card
  • Glitz Designs beautiful Dreamer patterned paper
  • Leaf / Branch Die
  • Lace
  • Sequins
  • Sentiment is from a journaling card, chopped down to size
  • Stardust stickles

Make Your Own .. Day 1

Hi there and a warm welcome to you all..

Can you believe it has been 3 weeks today since I challenged myself to make something every day for a year without buying any new crafty things (except adhesives)

I have to say it is fun and also a challenge!

Starting today I have the Make your Own series… my thoughts behind it were to create my own embelishments to give me a box of go to things that I can use on cards and things..

So today for Day 1 we have Make Your Own Shabby Chic Primitive Stars๐Ÿ™‚ I also have a tutorial video on my youtube channel.. just click on the video below to watch

Primitive Stars

They were so much fun to make, I think this series is going to be so much fun in the making!

I used various different sparklies for the edges..all shown and listed below๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you enjoy the video and I will see you tomorrow for Day 2!

Have a great weekend

I am Loving Life…

Hi Everyone,

It has been another busy night for me…so another couple of quickie cards..

If you are looking to make cute cards in a hurry then why not give journaling cards a try, they are just the job!


I used some textured stone cardstock from my stash and cut it to 4″ x 10″ and scored it at 5″

loving life 1

I also took some thick watercolour card to act as a matte to the journaling card and cut this at 3.25″ x 4.25″

loving life 2

I think the stone cardstock really sets the card off making the pale colours pop

heart 1

I also added a scattering of sequins for good measure๐Ÿ˜‰ ย they are Little Things from Lucys cards

love 2

I also added a sticker from the Tim Holtz self adhesive words books, not sure if it is the chit chat one or the other whose name escapes me haha..

Well that is me for the night, 2300hrs and time for bed

I will see you again tomorrow


Wee Pillie Boxes

Hi everyone!

It has been another busy night… working late, made the tea, went to vote at local election, walked the dogs, then up to my shed to make something for the blog..

I was at the chiropractor earlier today, i have the sorest neck and back, hopefully they can straighten me out soon! but tonight I’m a tad sore, so once the blog post is done I’m off to bed for an early night.

Tonight’s project… wee pillie boxes or if you are not familiar with scottish dialect .. small pillow boxes๐Ÿ˜€

pillow box4

they are super easy to make, I used the Lawn Fawn Pillow Box Die and it fits perfectly with a bit of 6 x 6 patterned paper, so you can make loads of different ones depending on what paper you have to hand and what you fancy…

I used stampin up dies for the tags.. they are sizzix sizzlet type ones I bought a very long time ago and never used, shame on me.. they are lovely and I should have used them!ย pillow box 1

I used this grey and white bakers twine the other day and it was still lying on my desk so it came in handy for this one.

I also stuck some star sequins onto the glitter cardstock that I cut the tags out of.. love how this looks and fancy making some more soon.

As always, thanks for popping round to my wee blog and I will see you tomorrow๐Ÿ™‚ it’s almost the weekend yipeeeee!

Take care
