Let It Snow

The main image is by Crafty Individuals, I chose this stamp after I was luckily chosen as winner in one of their challenges.

I stamped and water coloured the images. I fussy cut them out and detached the umbrella from the children. I made a snowy background with Watercolours and adhered the children to the texture paste and glitter snow. I used foam pads to hold the umbrella in place to gave it some depth. The Let it Snow stamp is from IndigoBlu's stamp set Sparkle and Glisten

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope to see you again soon.

Once upon a notebook

I recently found this cute little notebook. I decided to alter the cover by using A lovely Teddy stamp by Crafty Insividuals, and colouring her with watercolours.I created the background by using chalks on water I have written a short tutorial on how I did this here. I then added a few spalshes of watercolours.

I tied a lot of pretty organza ribbons onto the book spiral.

Thank you so much for visiting.

Papercrafter Designer For The Day

I have been lucky enough to have been chosen for Designer for the Day in issue 97 of Papercrafter magazine.

If you would like to know how I made this card the details can be found in the magazine.

My 3D scene which I made with the lovely Indigo Blu Clumber Park stamps, was also in the magazine, which was a surprise.

There are lots of wonderful ideas in the magazine this month!

Party in the Forest

Yipeee it's party time in the forest and crowns are the order of the day. And of course no party is complete without balloons !

I used a circular box lid for the base which I covered in old book pages. I also cut thin strips from the book to make the tree.

The Crowned Bunnies stamp by Crafty Individuals is just adorable, I coloured them with water colour paints.Some white flowersoft gave them a nice little bunny tail.

I used Magic plastic to make the balloons, that was an experience!

Thank you for joining the party in the forest today.

Wild Poppy Meadow Box

I couldn't bear to throw out this lovely little biscuit box, so I decided to cover it with decoupage papers. I used Wildflower Woods Paperpatch. I always use PVA glue with my decoupage, it is much less expensive than the special decoupage glue and seems to work ok for me.

My favourite flower is the wild poppy, and Crafty Individuals Poppy Meadow Stamp fitted perfectly on the front of the box ! I used watercolours to colour the image.

For a finishing touch I put some lace along the side of the lid. This lace had a double sided tape already on it, which was helpful!

I am going to give this to my sister for Easter, ....... I better find something nice to put in it first !

Thank you so much for visiting.

Crafty Individuals Face Value

I don't think I have ever made a Christmas card in July before! 

Crafty Individuals have a Challenge this month with the theme of "Face Value". So I used their lovely deer stamp on my card, and created a snowy landscape.

 I have a feeling this deer maybe Prancer!

Thank you so much for looking.


It's my Birthday on the 1st of August, and to celebrate I am giving away a Clarity Stamp Stencil. Also included will be a booklet of ideas on how to use it. Which is  written by Barbara Gray.
I am not giving any clues as to which stencil it is, but if you would like a chance to win it, just pop back on August 1st!
