It’s been a while and it seems like I have been absent for ages.. but I have been super busy making wedding invitations.. and they turned out sooo pretty..
So this is me back to bloggy business as usual. I am starting off my return with a birthday card, I was asked to make this by one of my friends at work.. love how this one came together
The card base is 6″ x 6″ and it is a kraft scalloped edge card that I bought at the Ross Papercraft Show a few months back..
I used some black cardstock as a layer and some pretty floral patterned paper..
The flower was a packet of basic white flowers from Hobbycraft and I used a sepia coloured spray to give it a touch of colour..
I will be back with another blog post soon as I have been asked to make a couple of first communion cards and a wedding card for a couple of friends at work,
As always, thanks for popping round and…. its great to be back 😀

I mentioned yesterday that I had some news to share…
I am so happy to be able to let you know that I am a design team member for 2017-2018 for ColourCraft and I am looking forward to creating lots of nice new projects for them in the coming year.. and of course you will get to see them all because they will all be featured here on my blog 🙂
I also have an ATC Art Shrine to share with you… this is from a company called That’s Crafty and they can be bought from http://www.stampersgrove.co.uk
they arrive in kit form and you have to glue all the bits together to make the shrine, you get 3 in a packet.. I gave one a coat of Deco Art white gesso, then cracked open my new set of Tim Holtz mini Stencils and used 2 different ones along with Deco Art Modelling Paste
I also used 2 pots of Brush crystals to obtain the gorgeous colour on the shrine.. Turquoise and Light Brown…
I popped in an ATC that I made some time ago, just to see what it looked like up against the ATC Shrine
I’m loving how the blue pops through the brown in random places.. and I am looking forward to decorating the other two soon… not sure if I am entirely finished decorating this one yet, I might add something else to the front, but if I do I will be sure to post an updated picture
That’s all for today, as always thanks for popping round and I will see you soon
I mentioned the other day that I would share the coffee sleeve tag book that I made using the Graphic 45 Safari Adventure papers..
I used plain kraft coloured coffee sleeves and stenciled over each one with a Dylusions stencil with a triangle pattern and Ground Espresso ink.. I think it made it rather giraffe like 🙂
I also used one of the pages from the 12 x 12 stack with loads of cut aparts to decorate and embelish the book
I stuffed the book with tags and belly bands so that you can add even more tags
and I finished off the book by binding it all with a book ring and a large eyelet from We r Memory Keepers using the Cropodile.
As always, thank you for popping round
See you again soon
I have a coffee sleeve tag book to share with you today… we will be making coffee sleeve books at tomorrow’s workshop at stampers grove… if you fancy joining us, I will leave the details at the bottom of this post 🙂
It is such a great way to recycle your coffee sleeves
and turn it into something pretty

I have another project to share with you today … a cover for a big post it note, I have Robyn to thank for putting this idea into my head yesterday at the Mini Album Workshop.
The cover I made yesterday for the workshop is the same but on a smaller scale, this is only 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″
The patterned paper is gorgeous .. I got this yesterday too it is Graphic45’s Safari Adventure.. I also made another mini album last night when I got home using this same paper line, and again it is a smaller scale mini, but I will share that with you next week.
If you would like to make one too, I have a video tutorial below, plus you can get the post it note blocks from Asda for £1.00 🙂
I hope you have had a great weekend and I will be back next week with more projects.

This weekend I have been making mostly …. Envelope Books 🙂
They are samples for a workshop at Stampers Grove this Saturday 11th February from 10.30 till 12.30..
This is a great way to use up your envelops stash and as you can see they look great in all shapes and sizes 🙂
Its also a great way for you to use up your jelly plate prints
and also use up all those patterned papers we hoard 😉
and practice zentangle (which I suck at lol)
