This little framed picture would be lovely for a nursery. I embossed the stars with WOW Platinum embossing powder, it's hard to tell from the photo but they are lovely and shiny. This sweet elephant and sentiment are from the... Continue reading

My nephew is going to love this Alpaca Pals, You Rock stamp set. These dinosaur's are just perfect for little boy cards, and this sentiment makes me chuckle. I kept this card very simple - chevron patterned paper background, and... Continue reading

A messy lion from me today! I thought this image from the Alpaca Pals Warrior stamp set would work really well with some loose, messy watercolouring and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I think this heart wreath... Continue reading

In the Never Forget stamp set, there are two cute elephants facing each other. It's really useful when stamp sets include a reverse image because it means you can easily create a spinner card. It's hard to photograph, but I've... Continue reading

This cute little elephant from the Alpaca Pals, Don't Forget stamp set is just the right size to pop onto the Sizzix Eileen Hull Wrapped Journal. If you saw the demo on my recent Sizzix Hochanda shows, you'll have seen... Continue reading

How cute is this little lion? This card is 15 x 15cm so this lion is quite large - I don't have many cute images that would work on a card this size without having to be put on a... Continue reading

If you saw the journal I posted yesterday, you'll have seen the lovely dreamcatcher die I used on one of the notebook inserts. I bought this stamp set so that I'd have some suitable sentiments to use with that die,... Continue reading

I made this journal as a gift. I'm really pleased with how it came out - I used a glue pen and gold foil for the gold dots and they came out so rich and shiny. I added a to... Continue reading

I needed a get well soon card for a friend, and thought this gorgeous flower stamp from Simon Says Stamp would be lovely with watercolour paint. It's a little too controlled still - I was going for quite a loose... Continue reading

I had to make a sympathy card this week and wanted to keep a very simple colour scheme so I decided to cut some white flowers from the Sizzix Phrases, Happy & Pineapple Thinlits die set. I've used these flowers... Continue reading

I just love this new stamp and die set from Simon Says Stamp. I have a bit of a thing for wreath designs anyway and the font on these stamps is just lovely. I kept the design of these cards... Continue reading

Since the new Sizzix Eileen Hull Wrapped Journal sold out so quickly on my last HOCHANDA shows I didn't get the chance to do more than one demo with it, so as promised here's a quick video tutorial explaining a... Continue reading

Last sneak peeks ahead of my shows tomorrow. I can't wait to share some ideas for the new Wrapped Journal die. I think what I love most about Eileen's dies, is that they really are just a blank canvas. You... Continue reading

Another Wrapped Journal, this time with a travel theme, I used the text from the Shadow Script dies without the matching shadow die. I really like the font and it works so well with my mixed media background. This is... Continue reading

I think this is one of my favourite journals. I was inspired by a journal that Anne Redfern made a while ago, and I just love the texture of felt on the cover. I used the Bigz circle die to... Continue reading

Another of the gorgeous Wrapped Journal samples. For this one, I cut it from white mount board and used paint effects to get a wooden panel look. I used one of the dies from the Mixed Media #2 set to... Continue reading

The fabulous thing about the Eileen Hull journal dies is that they are Bigz dies, so you can cut through all sorts of materials. For this journal, I used greyboard, and added some fabric pleather (cheap plastic imitation leather). I... Continue reading

I'm (very impatiently) waiting to start my new MAMBI planner. It doesn't start until July, but I've been spending the last week or so adding in all my appointments, birthdays etc. I added a sheet at the front to have... Continue reading

My sister asked me recently to make her a Christmas planner, one of Eileen's DT (I think it was Anne Redfern) had made a beautiful one and that gave her the idea. Mine is a bit more simple than Anne's,... Continue reading
