Beautiful butterflies

Eeeekkk!!! Only 2 days to go to get your hands on the lush Shabby Chic collection.
I know I always say how amazing all the new products that Crafters Companion release are (because they really are!) but I have to say this one has just blown me away!! It really is AMAZING..
The inspiration you get once these range is on your desk is wonderful. The dies and papers are just so pretty that it is soooooo easy to make pretty shabby chic creations.
It really is a must!!

Here is another of my samples, this time a stepper card..

I used Centura Pearl for the base card then decorated with the 12x12 papers, die cut frames and butterflies. The special friend sentiment is also from the collection as are the roses. 
Finished off with some pearls from my stash 


Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great weekend

Non card projects

Good morning crafty friends, 

Wow the wind has been terrible here all night, luckily it hasn't caused any damage yet :-/

Thank you for all your messages about my shabby chic samples. I know this collection is just going to fly ou, don't forget to tune in to Hochanda TV on Monday at 11am for the first show. 

Here is a wine gift box and little gift bag I made with the collection

I used a plain Kraft gift bag I had lying around in my craft room.. covered it with some of the 12x12 papers and inked around the edges, I then used the doily die to make the flower, finished off with ribbon from the collection that I also inked with distress inks and a rose to the centre 

I made this wine box using the big score board and the DVD tutorial. Covered with 12x12 papers and  inked with distress inks. Finished off with die cut doily and a ribbon bow.

I love maki gift bags and boxes because they act as a great accompaniment to a card, and gives that extra special feel to a little gift

Shabby chic

Hello bloggers, 

Have you seen the new shabby chic range from Crafter's Companion I'm so lucky to have received some of it to play with. OH WOW !!! It's amazing. Just a wonderful collection of papers, dies, embossing folders and embellishments. I'm sure I will be getting a lot of use out of this range..

Here a few of my samples made using these stunning goodies.

I used Centura Pearl to create the card blank then used papers, dies, stamps, flowers and lace all from the new range. Finished off with a few pearls from my stash.

These two cards are 7x7 cards using papers, dies, lace, ribbons, flowers and embossing folders from the range. 

This range is wonderful for all types of papercrfating, I've made gift bags and  boxes too but will share these in another post.


Thanks for stopping by today, 
Hope everyone is enjoying the school holidays so far.

A layout

Evening everyone, 

Hope you are all well and have had an enjoyable weekend. 

I have another creation I made for the NEW essentials word bundle dies available from Crafters Companion but for this one I wanted to show that these are great for scrapbooking not just cards 

I used Sara's English Country garden papers for this, inked around the edges with tea dye distress inks. Butterflies are dies also from the English Country garden range.

Essential word dies

Morning bloggers,

Almost a whole week has past again without me blogging :-(
Really need to get back into it, I've just been finding it very hard to manage getting everything done in the hours I have available each day, so this week I made the decision to reduce my design team commitments, I have decided to step down from my position at Crafty Ribbons and My Mums Craft Shop. Both of these online stores are amazing and I have loved being apart of these teams.

Right I have a selection of samples I made now for the Crafters Companion shows using the wonderful NEW essentials word dies. These dies are so useful and can be used on all sorts of crafting projects. 

This Mum card is great for birthdays or Mother's Day. I used English country garden papers and some pearls and ribbon from my stash.

This thank you card is just using Centura Pearl card with coredinations dark 12x12 pad
Finished off with a few pearls 

Happy birthday card using English country garden embossing folder with gilding wax

These dies are perfect for wedding stationery too. Here are a couple of cards /save the date and invitations I made. Very simple and quick designs but look great with the glitter words,


Thanks for stopping by today
Have a good weekend
