Magazine Articles


Hello. Have you spied the latest magazines to hit the shelves? I have articles in both! In Cards and Crafts for Christmas I made a set of cards showcasing brand new Christmas dies from CraftStash.....


And in the Joanna Sheen box set I used the free gift to make gorgeous backgrounds.....


I have been taking commissions from Practical Publishing for a number of years now and it's still a thrill to see my cards in print.

Hobonichi - August 2018



Hello. Today I am sharing my monthly update on my Hobonichi. I am still (amazingly) up to date. And, believe it or not, it's time to think about next year! The Hobonichi store in Japan now has all the planners and covers in stock for next year. I still very much love my cover and so will just be ordering a new planner for the inside. I have filmed a quick flip through of August which you can see here. It ended up a very busy month!

Here are links to blog posts for April, May June.and July. From those blog posts there are links to that months flip through!

Minty Dreams Collage


Hello. Today I'm sharing a page in my Minty Dreams passport size journal. I had watercoloured a few of the Julie Nutting Merry doll stamps a week or so ago and decided to fussy cut one and add it to a journal page. The background is simply callaged using Prima Misty Rose pieces and washi tape.

A really quick and easy journal page! The Julie Nutting stamps and the Misty Rose collection is available over at Paper, Pen and Plan. Quote LIZ10 for 10% off.

Blogger's Journal - part 2



Hello. Following on from this blog post I thought I would give you a quick update and a sneak peek inside, now that I've started using it! To add to the 'design team schedules' and 'notes & ideas' inserts I shared in the previous blog post I have added a 'creative diary'....


I've laid out one week to a double page. The days of the week are stamped using Prima Travellers Journal stamp set. The monthly grid is a stencil from this months Sweet Treat box. I stencilled with a small chalk ink pad and then the numbers are simply written on top! I have stencilled a calender on each page.


In the design team schedules insert here is the Paper, Pen and Plan section. 'Must do's' on the left side and ideas for future posts on the left. The plastic insert wallet at the back is the perfect place to keep my monthly stencil and other bits and bobs!

you are so nice


Hello. I have a little Penny Black card to share today. This one is called 'garden visit'. We have a lot of this type of garden visit, especially since normal service has resumed and it's raining! But, I'm very careful, I certainly don't want to feel or hear a crunch underfoot!!

The sentiment is from the 'I Like You' set by Technique Tuesday, I stamped the image using my Versafine ink pad and coloured using watercolours (my new Altenew ones - they're delicious!). And that's some more paper used up!
