Imagitation can take you anywhere !



I am always finding pressed flowers in between book pages, so after  experimenting with stamping on pressed rose petals  ( please see this postI thought I would try using punches with them. I began by gluing my pressed rose petals onto card, I used a Pritt glue stick. I then  used the beautiful  Fiskars punch to create lots of  rose petal butterflies. 

I created a sky background with watercolours, and stamped the lovely little Phyllis Harris Stamp by 
Unity onto card.After giving her some colour I carefully cut around her, and adhered her to the background. I wanted the butterflies to float her up and away to a magical land. So I arranged the butterflies above her and drew a line from the butterflies to her hands. I stamped the brilliant quote next to her,  I love that sentiment - imagination really can take you anywhere...

Thank you for stopping by, I am off to Alexandra Palace tomorrow for the big craft show.

Fiskarettes Design Team Reach For The Stars


I am very happy and honoured to reveal today that I have joined the talented Fiskars UK Design Team. I will be creating with them for the next 3 months. I have been crafting since I was old enough to use scissors, and I have always used Fiskars scissors and trimmers. I have found them to be of the highest quality and never let me down.

My first project for Fiskarettes UK is ‘Reach For The Stars”

I painted the box frame in a metallic white paint and punched stars out of masking paper and placed them over the top. I then painted over the frame in blue paint, and when dry I  removed the stars.

For the hills I used the circle punch and folded them in half and overlapped them, adhering them together.I covered the hills in texture paste before painting them.

I used invisible thread to hang  one of the glittery stars from the inside top of the frame

The lovely girl Stamp is drawn by the amazingly talentedPhyllis Harris and made by  Unity Stamps 


Thank you for visiting and Happy 2018 xx

Thank You Kindly


I used one of Phyllis Harris's gorgeous stamps for this card. I paper pieced the little girls dress and also mounted it onto the same patterned paper. I love watercolours so of course I used them to create the background and also to colour the lovely characters.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

A Sunshiny Day

I love Phyllis Harris stamps, and this lovely little girl is another of her wonderful creations! I had a lot of fun creating a Summer Meadow for her to wander in. Craft Stamper have very kindly published it in there August edition, so the details about how I made her meadow can be found in there.

Let's hope the sun starts shining for real soon!

I posted this on Unity Stamps Facebook page and Phyllis Harris the artist who created the stamp left a comment! How very kind was that!
