Snowflake Showcase Available NOW!!!

Snowflake Showcase Available NOW!!!
Morning,  I can't believe it's November already, it's also our 10th wedding anniversary which I also can't believe! The other exciting news is that the amazing Snowflake showcase selection of products are available from today until the end of the month!! Everything is lovely but I REALLY adore the Thinlit dies, they are beautiful, just LOOK at those samples (I'll be honest I've not made these, I've not had time to play with the dies yet so these are some from the SU website). What style are you doing your Christmas cards in? Snowflakes are always a classic (they'd make lovely decorations too, they'd hang on the three or make beautiful garlands!!!) Before the samples, heres' a little video too.... Rebecca x

Baby Girl Gift

Baby Girl Gift
Hello,  I'm back today with another bit of home decor, a gift sign/plaque that would make a lovely gift for a new baby girl. I didn't have anyone in mind when I made this I was just playing with the Twinkle Twinkle suite of products and some MDF shapes I'd bought off eBay! I think it's turned out really well and will be handy in my gift drawer in case I need it, It'd also be really really easy to recreate for a baby boy, or in a mother colour. Shame I don't get chance to do craft fairs anymore- this kind of thing would be ideal! If you'd like to see the products I've used the links are at the bottom of the post.... Rebecca x

Halloween Home Decor

Halloween Home Decor
Hello! We've had a lovely few family days out this week, We've been to Blackpool Zoo yesterday and a lovely local garden centre today for a bit of early Christmas shopping!!! I love all the home decor that you find in garden centres nowadays, it's inspired me to get creative with my paper crafting goodies and make some Halloween decorations. These are simply some MDF wooden stars (from eBay) decorated with Toil and Trouble DSP and a a few bits of glitter and glam! I love how they turned out, I feel some Christmas ones coming on soon..... Products links can be found at the bottom of the page,  Rebecca x

Always Take The Scenic Route!

Always Take The Scenic Route!
Morning, I know some people will disagree and say its "cheating" but sometimes I just need to make a quick, or different card for someone and I will often turn to a kit or the Memories and More cards. This card was for a cycling friend of my husbands, I needed to make the card quickly and with a cycling theme!!! I had the papers but didn't;t really have time for inking uo stamps etc so I let hubby look through the Memories or More cards and he picked this sentient. All I need to do was cut it out, layer it up and stick it on the DSP- 5 mins and done!!! I also find I like the variety of having cards like these without committing to a stamp set that I might not use that much! Do you think something this simple is "cheating" or is it just a different way of being creative? Links to all the products I've used can be found at the bottom of this post, Rebecca a x

New job and a birthday!

New job and a birthday!
Hello,  I hope you're well- I don't have a new job and my birthday was last week, so what todays' post is about is using one stamp in two different ways. I've used the lovely image of the lady to create a birthday girl with shopping and balloons as well as a sassy lady walking away from her old job...... love how different they've turned out. I've also kept decided to make one card a bit more clean and simple than the other- which do you prefer? Rebecca x p.s. links to products used can be found at the bottom of this post

Hello! I'm soooo relieved that it is nearly half term, I've been poorly this week with a migraine which has given me a raging headache and sickness for two days, I've even had a day off work yesterday which is really rare for me!

I found this little spooky card to share with you today, again everything is fussy cut from the "toil and trouble" DSP, so cut and super easy!!

Beautiful Watercolour Kit!

Beautiful Watercolour Kit!
Hello,  I've been at it again! I've found a new love for the Memories and More card kits, they are amazing for making super quick but stylish cards- I made ALL of these in one of Toms naps! I've used the matching cards and envelopes too but of course you could use your own card bases. The Memories and More pack comes with a few sheets of stickers and to make these 20 cards I've only added adhesives, a few die cuts/punched shapes I had in my bits box and some gems and sequins. The main two items, Memories and More card pack and the card blanks  and envelopes, only cost £18, so they are really affordable as that makes each card under £1. I'm going to pop my in a tin and gift them to some over Christmas! Thanks for stopping by! Rebecca x Memories and more card pack includes: * 50 double-sided cards in 3" x 4" (7.6 x 10.2 cm) and 4" x 6" (10.2 x 15.2 cm) sizes * 6 single-sided laser-cut specialty cards in 3" x 4" (7.6 x 10.2 cm

Pumpkins!!!

Pumpkins!!!
Hello,  "Pumpkins", that was what Tom, my two year old, announced to me into supermarket.... I can only assume they've been talking about them or painting them at nursery. He' very quick at learning new words now, he repeats EVERYTHING! Anyway, here's another Autumnal/halloween card for you- you could easily change the sentiment if Halloween isn't your thing! The gorgeous watercolored images are fussy cut from the "Toil and Trouble" papers- if course I used my SU paper snips, I think they're amazing for cutting fine detail- super sharp and nice to hold in the hand too! I spent an hour or so on the sofa cutting out the cute witch, cauldrons, hats and pumpkins so it didn't take long at all to later up some quick spooky cards! I'f you'd like to be part of a paper share for these DSP sheets you can pay just £3.50 for  12 sheets 6'x6'3 sheets,  2 each of 6 double-sided designs- of course you can always buy the full sized shee
