Spooky Set

Hello. Today I'm sharing a super cute set for Halloween. I've made spooky bunting, a small gift card and a milk carton box. The 'mummy' is a Polkadoodles digi image available here

No sweets were eaten during the making of this set!

Hello. I'm well and truly in Christmas mode now! This is a Penny Black wood mounted stamp called 'warm and merry'. I stamped using a Versafine ink pad, watercoloured and carefully fussycut the cute carolling mice. I 'grounded' them on the card with white glitter but unfortunately my photography skills have let me down and it's hardly visible.

I am entering the Allsorts Challenge....Christmas

Hobonichi - September 2018

Hello. It's time for my monthly update on my Hobonichi. The keen eyed among you will notice I have a new cover. While I was on the Hobonichi website ordering next years planner this cover accidently slipped into my basket! The outside is a gorgeous blue and my clear cover on cover is patterned. I love it, and the orange on the inside is perfect for this time of year. You will see the outside of the cover during my one minute flip through video here.

The super cute charms, pen, washi and letter stickers are all from this months Sweet Treat Box. And the Autumn themed stickers are in the Paper, Pen and Plan Etsy shop here. Quote LIZ10 for 10% off!

You will find links to all the previous months flip throughs from my August blog post here.

Too Stinkin' Cute

Hello. Today I'm sharing my make for the Polkadoodles Digi Choosday Challenge. 
My card features the following digital printables -
As well as my card I made a little 'whatnot' for display during Autumn. I enlarged the digi image of the apple barrel, carefully cut it out and stuck a piece of scrap card to the back as a stand. Really easy to do and looks pretty good on the crafty desk!
  The challenge is 'anything goes' so that's nice and easy isn't it? 
Why not have a go, all the info' is here.

Craft Carousel Makeover

Hello. I've given my desk a bit of a makeover. I saw the stoarage boxes in TKMaxx and couldn't resist. Of course that meant the dark brown coloured carousel would have to go! But where would I keep all the necessary bits and bobs that need to be handy? Give it a lick of white paint and use up the leftover papers from my Sweet Treat Box (available from Paper, Pen and Plan).

I'm really quite pleased with myself!

Sunday, 23 September 2018


Hello. Don't you love it when you have the perfect paper to match your stamp? And that you can actually find it in the mountain of paper in your stash!! Well, that happened to me today!

The stamp is from the Mermazing set by Neat and Tangled and the papers are Imagine That by Echo Park. I still want to make 'summery' cards even although the weather is definately telling me that summer is over!

Blogger's Journal - part 3

Hello. Following on from this blog post I've added another insert to my Blogger's Journal. This time it's a handy folder/envelope to hold some stickers. I covered the front of the folder using the gorgeous papers from this months Sweet Treat Box from Paper, Pen and Plan. I added some pompom trim down the side (as you do!)

And, there was another fab stencil in this months box so I decided to stencil the envelope using white ink. I added outlines using a fine black marker. That gorgeous paper clip was in the box too!

Here's the back, pretty much the same as the front!
