Easter Daffodil

Hello there, sorry for my absence the last week. I was on night shifts and didn't manange to get any posts scheduled beforehand. Thanks to all that commented on my last post, my new camera tripod arrived this week so I should be up and running with some tutorials etc soon!
This is the card I have made for my mum for Easter. She loves Daffodils and they always remind me of Easter so I thought the Clearly Besotted Stamps Spring Blooms Set would be perfect.


Thank you so much for visiting me today, wishing you a very happy Easter!

What Would You Like To See Me Do?

Hi there, for those of you that have read my blog for a while will know that I love organisation and storage etc. So I thought that since my organisation/storage videos have been so popular on You Tube views that I would do a mini series on how I organise certain craft products? What do you think?
I posted a question on my Facebook page asking for what you would like to see me organise. Some suggestions so far have been die storage, felt storage etc. So what would you like to see? There are obviously certain products that I don't own so I can't do everyhting but I would love to hear your suggestions please.
Also, are there any other videos you would like to see me make? This can be anything at all!
And last but not least are there any questions you would like to ask me? Anything at all, depends on what it is I may not be able to answer them all, but if there is anything you would like to ask me, craft related or not pleae leave a comment below.

If you would rather not leave me a comment on this post feel free to email me using the link in my sidebar :0)
I look forward to hearing from you!

Get Well Soon

Hello there, unfortunately my friend Marlou hasn't been well recently so I wanted to send her a little card to let her know I am thinking of her. I busted out my neglected Papertrey Ink stamps and used the Trendy Tree Tops stamps for the circles and the co-ordinating dies for the hearts.


Hope you start to feel better soon Marlou and I hope the rest of you have a lovely weekend!

Sending Smiles - DTDF

Hello there, for my card today I am showing you the card I have made for the new Die-Ing For A Challenge over at DTDF which this month is Spring related. For my card I have taken a sheet of white cardstock and cut three circles of varying sizes from the MFT Die-Namics Circle Stax Set. I have then added paper from the Echo Park Hello Summer Collection to the card base. The sentiment is from the MFT Doodle Garden Springtime Garden stamp set and this has been stamped on to the larger circle. The card panel has then been added on top. Finished off with rhinestones.


Thank you so much for visiting me today, I hope you are all happy and healthy!

A Note Of Thanks

Hello there, for my card today I have used two stamp sets from the new release at Clearly Besotted Stamps. I have used the Just A Note stamp to create the note paper and then stamped the sentiment from the Many Thanks set on top. The stars are also from the same set.


I just wanted to say a big thank you for all the lovely comments you gave me on my post below. They are so appreciated!

As you may be aware Google Reader is going to be discontinued so I have joined bloglovin', there is a link on my sidebar if you would like to follow me there.

To The Best

Hello there, when I made the card for my Mum for Mother's Day I made this one too as I wasn't sure which one to give her. I thought this one would be nice as a thank you card since it doesn't say 'Mother's Day' on. I have used the same products - Clearly Besotted Stamps Butterfly Wishes Additions and The Best stamp sets. I have used one of my favourite paper pads for the PP - Doodlebug Designs Hello Spring.


Thanks so much for visiting me today, hope you are all well

Bits & Bobs Giveaways

Hello there, as you may know I have been sorting through my craft room (yes again!) and have found a few bits that I don't think I will get around to using.
The first lot is a bunch of Craftwork Cards Mini Messages, they are mainly silver in colour but some are black and white too. There are circles and ovals and they are all different messages. Please note the pages are not all complete, they have been used.

The second lot is rub-ons. They are all different makes and sentiments. Like the Mini Messages, they have been opened and some have been used (although there a couple of packs that have never been opened).

If you would like either or both of these please leave me comment below stating that you would like the Mini Messages or the rub-ons or both. Random.org will pick a winner, if that person wants just one or the other then I will pcik another winner but if that perosn wants both they will just go to that person. Hope that makes sense!
Open to UK only (sorry) and will close Tuesday 19th March at 09.00 hrs. The winner needs to have contacted me via email by 22nd March at 09.00 hrs otherwise I will pick another winner. Good Luck!

Chloe Stem - DTDF

Hello there, for my card over at the DTDF Blog today I have used the ever so pretty Chloe Stem from Memory Box. I have cut it from Bazzill Raven CS and mounted to the base with glue. The base has been made by making a mask using one of the circles from the MFT Die-Namics Circle Stax collection. I have then inked the centre using Tim Holtz Concord Crush Distress Ink before peeling the mask away to show a prefect circle of ink. The sentiment is from the Whimsy Stamp Everyday Sentiments set has been stamped in the bottom corner. Finished off with a few gem stones.


Thank you so much for visiting me today, sorry my posts have been a bit sporodic again recently. I am hoping that will change soon. Thanks for sticking with me!

I have used the beautiful Whimsy Stamps Everyday Sentiments and combined them with the Memory Box Pippi Butterfly die cut from Echo Park Country Drive paper.
