{40th Birthday card}

Had the pleasure of making this for a friend of mine last week.

For any of you who love Stampin' Up! products there's only a couple of days left to benefit from all the fab offers on at the moment.

The best one (in my opinion) is to sign up and get up to £61 of free products!
For £99 you can choose £160 Stampin' Up! goodies.  Please contact me asap for a no pressure chat about what it would involve.

Used up some retired paper for the flowers.  The background was embossed with the Fluttering embossing folder, then I used a sponge dabbed with in the white Craft Ink.

{Mini Christmas Wreath}

Hi everyone, oops I am a day late with this post.
Hope you don't mind, yesterday I was out with my family enjoying the Good Friday break and spending time with friends.

Here is a little Christmassy project for you.  Of course you could use it for lots of other occasions.

{Paper Flower Corsage Tutorial}

Hi there!
As a lot of you may already know, I love making flowers, and am always on the look out and playing with punches and paper to find a new way of creating flowers.

A few weeks ago I organised a wedding crafting event and designed these to show the ladies what they could make.


I have filmed a video tutorial to help get you started.
