Good morning,

Well, over this weekend i have been busy stamping with my freebie Sheena Sketchy stamps and sharing my mums birthday aqua markers and painting.
Sorry it's slightly blured. This is how my box starts, just a plain wooden box.
Then i crackled it, using the technique from the paint fushion dvd.
My next step is to paint the design, which i plan to do today.

This year i am making a handmade/homemade christmas. I plan to make gifts for all my family using both paint fushion and my sewing book from christmas. The only thing im struggling with is what to make for my little cousin who is 4 this year and the new baby cousin who should arrive in august/september.

Before i go i would just like to share some of my paint fushion boards.
My berries need some flecks of white, but this was my first try at them.
and my lavendar which was my first try at paint fushion.

In the flower garden..........

Hello everyone,

Well, after leaving all of the cards we made on holiday in the van,i have made a card using my new Tilda range { Not magnolia tilda}
I used some plain pink paper to back everything on, before using a sheet of blue with white swirls on with a strip of lace across the middle.I then added the rose garden layer of paper, adding the toppers on to it. The bunting is great for corners.
The sentiment is written in a pretty font.
and the tilda image is realy pretty.

Please leave a comment to tell me what you think, and check out my docrafts gallery for more cards not shown on here.

Catch up

Hi everyone,

I havent had the chance to post much this week as i have been unwell, but im getting better now, just in time for my holiday, so i still wont be posting much:(

I do know i will be showing you some cards made with my new joanna sheen furry friends cd rom and Humphrey the elephant from crafters companion.                                         

I love both of our new cd roms, being an animal and cute picture lover!
I've also been busy making a scrapbook for my grans birthday with her lovely dog on. She's  a real cutie!

Its been a busy couple of weeks, especially with Digby as he went to the vets this week for a check up and his vaccines {Like me} so he felt pretty sorry for himself, but a play on the garden with his spongeball soon made him happy again.
   I hope i will get to show you more creations soon, im now going to do loads of printing, ready for tomorrow.

Tilda in the rain

Good morning!

Well today i am going to show my Tilda card i made on saturday.
The paper comes from grandmas button box cd rom. The doily effect is a punch, then we have a strip of embossed flowers with ribbon and a bow. The image is stamped in a 3 1/2 in circle. The big yellow rose is from the wedding area in hobbycraft, the red ones from joanna sheen and the little ones from Boyes. The sentiment is from cuddly buddly.

Please leave a comment and tell me what you think!

Green and Pink Tilda

Good morning,

Today, my post is about one of my first Tilda cards.
It uses Tilda in the rain, which is stamped in a punched 3in circle. The sentiment came from cuddly buddly downloads. The paper came free in a magazine, and the white embossed spotty card i made with a embossing board.

'The little things bring joy to the heart'
I used some white ribbon, which i coloured with promarkers and wrapped 2 peices around the card.
I used one green pretty petal and the rest are silk flowers.
I decided to try a Tilda card as they seem so popular on the docrafts gallery.

Something i am excited about is the new Joanna Sheen cd rom, launching on sunday! I will be ordering as soon as i see it! Hopefully it will get here before our next holiday.

Visit for a sneak preview!

Talk again soon,

p.s. Please leave a comment and tell me what you think of my tilda card. Is it as good as some you have seen?  Please leave honest comments, thank you.

Bella and Bronte

This is another card made with the Bella and Bronte image.
I focused on greens and ivory for this card. The sentiment is from cuddly buddly downloads. The paper comes from a cd called grandma's button box. The ribbon came from a pack of cards, which i opened and wrapped around my card twice to make two rows. The flowers, the two ivory ones are from woodware and the green and ivory middle ones from my pretty petals. This is one of my faviourite images, i can't wait to get more!
This one is based on pinks, i dont think this one is as good as my first, but its different.
Both are coloured differently.


Happy Birthday Bronte!

  Hello, Today i have a card to share featuring my favourite characters Bella and Bronte! I coloured my image with promarkers and matched to...
