A little bit of Christmas fun

It’s been a while since I have posted anything, but I promise you I have a few projects raring to go.

This card is made from two of my favourite bundles in the autumn/winter catalogue….Santa’s suit and Ready for Christmas, the window is from the set Hearth and home thinlits. I used Merry little Christmas dsp for the wallpaper, card size is 7in x 5in.

I am really chuffed with how this has turned out will definitely be making a few more of this card 😁

Balloon pop up

I made this card months ago and as I was just about to write in it I realised I hadn’t posted a picture on my blog.

I know it’s retired now , but a little inspiration goes a long way.

Fancy fold card using “Rose wonder”


To say i am pleased with the outcome of this car is an understatement :0)

I made this card in 2 different colours, one tempting turquiose and one in mint macaron and this one is my favourite.

Papers are from “Birthday bouquet” dsp, I paper pieced the “Rose garden thinlets” by firstley die cutting them in two different colours, sticking the outline of the rose onto a seperate sheet of cardstock, cutting it out then sticking the different colour pieces into the spaces, it does take time but I find it very theraputic. Here is the second card I made using the recently ritired sale-a-bration dsp.
