Nib page

This is an alphabet page I made N is for Nib! The background was made with dabbers. Then a small piece of stampboard was coloured to match. Tim Holtz nib stamp was used and stampboard was placed on the matching nibs.

Snowmen pages

I have 21 stamped snowman pages to make! I have eventually made a start first ones are stamped with scribble snowman . Scarf and hat were coloured with watercolour pencils then the background stamped with snowflakes. A finishing touch was added with stickles crystal just for an added bit of Christmas sparkle.
My second batch are made with a snowman stamp designed by my friend Linda.He has been done the same way as the other one but his eyes and buttons were made shiny with glossy accents.

christmas fat book page

Another fat book list! This is a Christmas one so I stamed Peace on Earth and embossed it in gold then embossed around the writing. The page was finished off with 3 red brads and a red ribbon. My only problem now is do I make them all the same?

3x3 swap fat pages

Pages for one of many swaps I take part in. I decided to make them all similar to each other.

Nature ATC and fat book page

Today I thought I'd better get up to date with a nature RAK I had promised. So I merrily got on and made a nature ATC only when I had finished it did I realise that it was meant to be a fat book page!!! So I made that too!!

Autumn ATCs

Today I made 3 ATCs for a monthly swap. The card was sprayed with Adirondack colour wash and Tattered Angels glimmer mist. Then stampboard was sprayed too then extra thick embossing powder was added and a leaf stamp pressed into it. Leaves were then stamped on the background with stayzon. Words were then added with bronze embossing powder also round the edges. Hey presto finished!

A Christmas card to have money for a bed and breakfast stay was my next challenge! The initials were cut on my cricut. My big problem was getting the name and greeting onto the front. This was acheived by putting a little envelope and card on.

monkey mask

What a strange request this one was! A card for a woman with a gorilla mask!!!!The mask was made with a cuttlebug die and the words cut with my quickutz. To make the letters stand out more I did little stitches round the with a white gelly roll pen. I hope this is what she had in mind!

best wishes

This is a card I was asked to make for somebody who is leaving to have her second baby. Embellishments are cut with a variety of die cutters

A mans card for a change! A real cheats card this one. But I'm pleased with the way it's turned out.


This is a fat book page (one of two)the same that I made - the crown is stamped with a printing block and the decorated with liquid pearls and gems. I think the quote could be very appropriate especially for me!!!

4 year old card

Yet another card I have been asked to make for a little girl! She has a white teddy bear called snowy so this seemed like a very good place to start - I then just tried to make the rest of the card very girly. I hope she likes it.

tis the season

Here is christmas card I have made just for a bit of fun! I used cuttlebug dies to make the snowman and house. For a real snowy feel I added stickles to the snowmans head and the roof of the house


Today I decided it was eventually time to put a couple of things on here! About time too!
First of all a blank card I have been asked for - the only requirement for the card was the butterflies. I made these with fantasy film and a small stamp I got free with a magazine finished off with a little bindi for a little extra sparkle .The white flower was made with a quickutz die.
