Decorative Hatpins


A few weeks a go I did a post using a decorative hatpin as a focal point for one of my cards.

It received a terrific response with lots of people enquiring as to where they could obtain them.

Well - as a result I am now selling the hatpins in assorted packs of three for £7 plus P&P.



Here is a little reminder of my project for those of you that missed it:-



If you would like to purchase my hatpins, just contact me by email at :-

Covered Notebooks and Thank You's !

Thank you so much to those of you who continue to support me with their orders.

Its a blessing and its very much appreciated, and I hope that this week my customers will love these
mini covered note books and "Thank You" cards.

I chose to concentrate mainly on the beautiful Paisley and Posies Suite this week, having always been a huge fan of Paisley prints.


All but one of my note books are covered in fabulous papers from the Petals & Paisleys Speciality Designer Series Paper pack.

The pink dotty number from the Pop of Pink Designer Series paper has two die cuts from the Paisley Framelits set.   The Framelits may be purchased separately but can also be purchased as part of a bundle.  The beautiful co-ordinating stamp set has a huge variety of pretty motifs.  You will see that I have used some of these on my Thank You cards.

You may also spot that I used my Pansy Punch and Flower Shop stamp set on one set of notebooks. They just seemed to go so well with the pretty paper.

I chose to use my Layering Circle Framelits as the focal point on the note books.  These are incredibly useful both on cards and also for creating toppers and tags.

I kept the cards very simple layering Soft Sky cardstock onto Whisper White and heat embossing in White Stampin' Emboss powder.  The super stylish sentiment is from the stamp set "One Big Meaning".  It was a little time consuming heat embossing all the cards, but I am thrilled with how they turned out.  I finished the cards by adding some pretty Fancy Frost sequins.


These will be sent out today in  my "Thank You" packs.

Its not too late to request the new seasonal cataloge (free of charge !).

Thanks for stopping by today.  Enjoy your day and please do pop back again ........

My Websters Color Crush Planner's Protective Bag

I am the proud owner of a brand spanking new gorgeous Color Crush Planner from Websters.  Its super gorgeous and I feel like a proud mum !!

These Planners are beautiful inside and out and I naturally want to protect mine and keep the outside looking "mint" for as long as I possibly can.   As they do not come with protective bags, I started a search for something suitable on the internet.   A fellow Color Crush fan suggested Kikkik.   Well I looked and was going to order one, but - just my luck........... none were available.

Being the impatient little soul that I am, I then turned to Amazon.  Good old Amazon always seems to come up trumps .

I came across some muslin draw-string bags by a great little company called Coozo and bought one size S for £1.98 and free postage and packing - cheap as chips !!!

It arrived yesterday, out came my gorgeous new stamp set Paisleys and Posies, a selection of inks (Flirty Flamingo, Bermuda Bay and Pear Pizzazz), some sequins and.......................................Bob's your Uncle !!!    So very pleased with this super quick project:-






Chuffed as nuts - that's me !

I ought to add that these are waterbased inks and cannot be washed.  But the bag is so cheap that does not bother me a bit.   For a permanent washable finish you would need to used an alcohol based ink.

Anyway, I'm off to play with my new Planner, so thanks very much for calling by - I will be back again soon with another "crafty" little project.

Enjoy your day.

Ferrero Rocher Mini Faceted Treat Box


A couple of years ago now, my team leader Pootles created her Faceted Box which at the time was hugely successful.  And around that time, I took her basic design and resized it to create a tiny little faceted treat box, for which I did a pictorial on one of my Face Book pages.

Two years have passed and I had quite forgotten about my little box and pictorial, until Sunday when a lovely lady called Madalina got in touch to ask me if there was a video tutorial for it.    Well there wasn't - but there is now !!!!!!


I used the beautiful stamp set Morroccan Nights for this project and did some gold heat embossing on Real Red card stock.   It looks so elegant, co-ordinating especially well with the gold foil wrapping on the chocolate treat (which sadly is no more - now seriously.......what did you expect ?)

So here is the video tutorial especially for Madalina and for anyone else that might be interested:-



Thank you for taking the time to stop by today.  Have a great day and I will pop back soon with my next project.

Texture, Texture & More Texture

I am a huge fan of using different textures for my projects and my latest order got me very very excited !   The Annual catalogue/brochure packed full of fantastic Christmas product has been very well thumbed whilst I waited patiently for my order.   When it finally arrived - well any Stampin' Up! fan will get this ........... I could have kissed Mr Brown from UPS !!!

I have been just itching to get my hands on the new Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and it really has lived up to my expectations.

I wanted to create a Christmas Card with a nordic feel.  So I combined the Embossing Folder with elements from my beautiful new Christmas Pines photopolymer bundle.




Its only a wee little card (3 x 3), but I do think it makes a big impact.   Plenty of texture, from the embossed card, die cut elements, burlap ribbon and cutest little red jingle bell !   I mounted the pines and cones onto a die cut scallop circle and mounted the photopolymer sentiment by slightly curving it onto my size A acrylic block, stamping so that the shape of the sentiment echoed the curve of the circle.

In shades of Pool Party, Crumb Cake and Whisper White, I feel I achieved what I had in mind.

I am now sending out this card with free copies of my Annual brochure.  The sentiment inside reads "May the Simple Joys of the Season by Yours", and it comes complete with an envelope for you to use and send to somebody over the Christmas season.   Simply request the brochure and an identical card will be yours !

Thank you for stopping by today.
