Popcorn & Halloween Bats!

popcorn #1popcorn #2popcorn #3

Stampin Up’s Popcorn Box dies are perfect for treats. This die set is perfect for all year round use! Every celebration needs some sweets and this little box is perfect for holding them all. The patterned paper is from the same stash I had purchased a few years ago and never used it! I used my silhouette portrait  to cut out the bats. The file name is ‘bat halloween set’ by Studio Illustrado. Now I am off  to deliver some to my neighbours!


Happy Halloween,



Emma Bridgewater meets Daisy Delight.

I love flowers in my home but they can be expensive. So I decided to use my imagination to see if I could come up with an alternative, and this is how it turned out. To make the Daisies I used some floral wire, Daisy Delight stamp set and matching Daisy Punch from Stampin Up. Each flower head is made up of two stamped and punched flowers, I then used hot glue to attach them to the floral wire. I used some artificial flowers from The Range to bulk out the arrangement. The vase is from Ikea. I used chalk paint and I decoupaged the bottle with Emma Bridgewater napkins.  I need to practise my decoupaging skills a little more!

Bella And Friends

I made this little birthday card for a family member’s 12th birthday. She loves animals so the Bella and Friends (141867) was the perfect stamp set. The background of the card I stamped out using the In Colour 2016-2018 Stampin’ Write Markets (141393). I also used Delightful Daisy DSP (144137) to create a layered effect. To finish off the card I added three Rhinestone Basic Jewels (144220). If you would like to own any of these products click here and you will be taken directly to my Stampin Up website.

Birthday Box Card.

It has been a long time since I made a box card. So for my husbands 30th Birthday I thought I would make something extra special. He enjoys the outdoors so I decided to use a retired stamp set called Walk in the Wild. I also used a current stamp set called Birthday Banners (141506) to add the finishing touches.

Life doesnt have to be perfect

autumn leaves card

Autumn is my favourite season of the year. The colours are amazing and I love the cosy winter nights by the fire. This card was inspired by the season.  The leaves have been cut using my Silhouette Portrait. The name of the leaf design is ‘Hello Fall’ and it is by Echo Park. The rest of the elements of the design have been stamped. The stamp set I used has since been retired by Stampin Up.  I normally find is hard to create a ‘simple’ card but I love how this one turned out.

I think I may have said it before but I am completely in love with the ‘Daisy Delight’ (143669),stamp set from Stampin Up. This stamp set can be used for so many occasions.

Happy Graduation!

Graduation season is in full swing! I was asked to make a last minute personalised card for a Graduate.

Father’s Day

I am so unorganised this years as regards to occasional cards and gifts. I made the card very quickly on Sunday morning (don’t tell my dad!). My dad is a massive vintage car fan, he owns two cars and a vintage tractor. Guy Greeting (order number 137178) from Stampin up was perfect for him and a lot of other guys! This set is great for any type of masculine card. The card colours I used where Island Indigo (order number 124390), Soft Suede (119982),  Very Vanilla (order number 106550).
