You're SEW Special

Hi all, 
Ooooh my have you seen these new release sets from
As soon as I received these little beauts I couldn't wait to get down to some craftyness


I fell in love with this set as soon as I saw it as it's coming upto hubbies aunties bday and she is mad about sewing :) I think Sally-Ann must have read my mind 

The papers I use are from an old K&Co pad classic K Mckenna
I paper pieced the sewing machine and pin cushion
 I used some real pins for to stick in the pin cushion and snipped one down for the needle in the machine
Wound some thread around the reel and down from the needle and added some fabric through with a little pearl to finish the dial
I scored a lattice background using my hougie board and adhered small pieces of paper in a random pattern to give the impression of patchwork
I finished with some hand stitching around the main image and background

The images along with some other great sets will be available on the Website HERE

Hi all,
 Well is it the same kind of a day where you are as it is here?? Grey, damp and very bleurgghhh looking? Miserable for some , but not for us crafters eh? Perfect to snuggle up in my little room and get the colouring pencils out with a nice cuppa :) :) 

Onto my card for today which I've made using a lovely digi stamp from


I coloured her with prisma pencils
The papers are a free download from shabby princess called expressy yourself
flowers are from Tim Holtz tattered florals die
The ribbon and matting are actually a dark brown although they are coming across as black in the piccie ..silly camera again!
A bit of stitching and some gems to finish and there you have it!

The scraps are from the Prima Natures Garden Pad 
I cut them into different sized strips and adhered them to some ivory card before chopping into panels
The flower is made using Tim Holtz tattered florals die and the flourish is fanciful flourish by cheery lynn

You've moved

Hi all, 
Hope you are all having a good week so far. 
Thanks for all the get well wishes, I'm feeling much better now thanks. :)
Here's a little CAS card I've made using one of this months sets from The Digistamp Boutique


The set comes in all individual pieces (Images and text) which allows you to make your own composition for any number of occasions. I simply created my scene within a frame , printed it onto ivory card , coloured with prisma colour pencils and decoupaged the birdie and house. 
Then matted it onto another piece of ivory card and onto the base.

more ivory on ivory

Hi all, 
After I finished making the anniversary card the other day. I decided to have a little play whilst I had all the stuff out and here are the results

 This was my first attempt. I like it a bit but maybe it's a bit to fussy for my tastes


Second attempt which I LOVE..much more me 


Then I decided to do something a bit different and have a go with this


 My nan loves to feed the birds so I popped some bird seed inside and gave it to her for easter instead of choc as she is diabetic :) she loved it !

Ingredients are as this post HERE

ivory on ivory

Hi all , 
I hope you are having a fab bank hol weekend. We had planned a few things but I've done something to my back and at the moment I'm walking around like Quasimodo :(  So our plans haven't come to much ..oh well!

I've made this card for my mum and step dads wedding anniversary on Tuesday


It's an 8x8 card made from papermill direct ivory card
I scored the background into a lattice pattern using my hougie board
I stamped the flowers and mat with antique linen DI with a flourish
The swirls/leaves is cheery lynn fancilful flourish die
flowers are Tim Holtz tattered florals die
I added a bit of stitching a few inked edges and some gems to finish.
Ideally I would have liked to have printed the sentiment lighter but as  you may know if you are a regular visitor to my blog that my mum has very little sight so I wanted her to be able to see it  and that's also the reason I wanted to add so much texture :)
