Kraft Florals & Butterflies


Good Evening Everyone

You asked for them.... you got them! :-)

Following the huge success that was my First Kraft Collection of Digital Papers (Kraft Kisses) and the feedback from everyone that you wanted more.... here they are!

Kraft Flowers & Butterflies

adore working with Kraft cardstock and papers so it was only a matter of time before I designed my own :-)

This is a collection of 10 designs, some butterflies and some florals... 

Of course, this collection will also work perfectly with the Kraft Kisses collection :-)

Kraft is a natural, neutral colour which is probably why I like using it... it's so versatile! 

So, I have created the same 10 designs in 5 finishes! White, Black, Beige, Grey and Brown.... all of them are (in my opinion) beautiful so good luck choosing which to use first! lol

I have also included a free, bonus design in the same 5 colours, but you will need to treat yourself to the collection to see it ;-)

That's a whopping 55 sheets in total!

The whole collection is available for only £5 from my online store.. 
Click the pack shot below to take you straight to them :-)

These are high resolution, 300dpi pdf files and I have tested every sheet and they print beautifully onto cardstock or paper!

Once checkout is completed, you will receive and email with your download links so you can save them on your computer and print them whenever you want them :-)

Happy Crafting!

Kraft Kisses....

Good Afternoon Everyone

You asked for them.... you got them! :-)

I adore working with Kraft cardstock and papers so it was only a matter of time before I designed my own :-)

This is a collection of 10 designs, some girls, some masculine, some text and some general use... 
I thought this was a great way to get the most out of this collection... 

Kraft is a natural, neutral colour which is probably why I like using it... it's so versatile! 

So, I have created the same 10 designs in 5 finishes! White, Black, Beige, Grey and Brown.... all of them are (in my opinion) beautiful so good luck choosing which to use first! lol

Good Afternoon Everyone

Well, it's a dreary day here in Nottingham.... perfect crafty weather!

So, I have mashed myself a cuppa and thought I'd pop the details on for the card I made using my DigiStamp Dreams Image - There, finished!

Many of you have seen this card on my Facebook and Twitter pages and left me some lovely comments, thankyou! :-) But you also wanted to know what I've used etc so here are the ingredients :-)


The items above that are linked, will take you to my website where you can (if you so wish) purchase the ingredients :-)

Website Update


Good Evening Everyone


Well, it's been a long job, but, our website has now finally moved over to the new server (with lot's of phone calls made by me to change things! and many hours of work by me updating it!)

So, you ca
n now go and have a wee looksy around and tell me what you think.... 
(and buy obviously! lol)


There's still things to add, but the majority of things are on there now, including my 'current fave' Wild Rose Studios Annabelles Christmas Stamps, which is what I used to make the card below :-)

The p and p is now as accurate as it can possibly be, 
calculated automatically by weight so that's good!

As always, you get a little Thankyou slip signed by lil ole me with each order too :-)

Anyhoo, enough rattling! Here's a link to the website :-)

Please let me know if something doesn't work (or I've spelt something wrong lol)

Please remember to register for my newsletter so you are kept up to date :-)

Happy Crafting!

Stampavie & HOTP Show Projects..

Good Afternoon Everyone

Well, it's a dreary, damp day here in Nottingham so I thought I would make the most of it, mash a cuppa and put photos on here for you of the samples I made for the Hot Off The Press and Stampavie Shows I did on Create & Craft last Saturday.

If you were watching, you'll know that the Stampavie show was a riot! With production having a little 'hiccup' on the 3 for 2 deal!
I hope you managed to get yours!

Anyway, as most of you will have seen on my Facebook page, I love HOTP kits... the Chocolate Dipped Kit being one of my personal faves as I love the warm colours in it... 

You all know I absolutely adore my Stampavie Stamps, I use them loads so, for me, these are worthy additions to my ever growing stamp collection! lol

Enough rattling, here are the samples (apart from a few I can't seem to find!) from both shows... 
I hope you like than and if you want to know what I used on any of them, just ask :-)

Happy Crafting!

**Stampavie & HOTP Saturday Show Times Update**


Good Morning Everyone

It seems I have got my show times wrong for this Saturday (6th) on Create & Craft!
I am now on ....

12noon - Hot Of The Press 
7pm - Stampavie

If I haven't mentioned it already, there is a fabulous 3 for 2 on the Stampavie show.. buy 2 stamps, get your 3rd FREE!!! 
I know this is going to be a really busy show and I've never known a 3 for 2 on Stampavie!!
I'm luck as I have all mine already, but, just be aware that there aren't huge stocks of these so be quick :-)

I'll just say too, there are some absolutely stunning stamps and paper kits on the HOTP show and these will be superb prices too :-)

Here's a little peep of a couple of the samples I've made :-)

See you at 12noon on Saturday!!

Stampavie & HOTP Shows on Create & Craft - whoo hoo!

Evening Everyone

Before I tell you about my shows on Create & Craft this Saturday, can I just say....
I have had sooooo much pleasure from creating these samples and demos!
Each and every product is fabulous! I was actually ooohhing and aaaahing at everything for about an hour before I could decide to do anything! lol!!

Can you tell I was a tad excited ;-)

As most of you probably know by now... Stampavie is one of my favourite brands of stamps, team that with the stunning designs and quality of HOTP papers and embellishments and some new, absolutely beautiful goodies by The Paper Co and, well, It's heaven for me!

So, I will be back on Create & Craft this Saturday, 6th October at 10am and 7pm

I know, it's a long gap between shows, but I didn't hesitate... 
I absolutely love the products so it's my pleasure! lol

One show will be a Stampavie show and the other will be a HOTP show, but (you know me well enough) they work absolutely perfectly with each other so I have used HOTP with Stampavie with some stunning results!

I hope you can watch!

Happy Crafting!

September Craftathon Projects

Good Evening Everyone

Well, the weather is definitely turning colder... I don't think our heating has been off since we got back from our holiday! BUT, the plus side for us crafters is it is a good excuse to stay indoors where it's warm and craft! and that's exactly what we did at our September Craftathon today! :-)

I want to just say a special thankyou to Lorraine, Claire, Becky, Kath and Sharon who have come from all over the country to spend the day with us today....
It was lovely to meet you all and I hope you enjoyed your day... I know I did! :-)

Anyhoo, I thought I'd pop the projects we did today onto the blog, it was a bit of a Stampavie fest, but who can resist these stunning stamps (One of my weaknesses!) 

I hope you like what we did today :-)

Happy Crafting!

Spellbinders POD Show Demo Cards

Good Morning Everyone

Firstly, a huge thankyou to everyone who bought the Spellbinders pod on Tuesday, what a massive success it was and I'm so glad you loved the dies as much as I do :-)
You'll have hours of crafty time creating with those dies!

I had a ball with Dean and Leonie... always a laugh to be found when we are on together so I hope you enjoyed the shows too!

Anyhoo, as promised, here are some photos of some of the cards I made on air, hopefully they will give you some inspiration. You'll have more time than I did on air to play around with the dies, but I hope these quick cards give you a few ideas on what you can achieve with very little effort!

Thanks so much for watching and for your emails, did you see how many there were!!

Enough rattling, here's a few photos of the cards I made :-)

Happy Crafting!
