Kraftyhands Challenge for February. Hearts and Flowers


For this months Challenge over at Kraftyhands, I have used TEACUP ZOO CD. A variety of animals in a teacup, with floral and script backing papers. Toppers, pyramid toppers, postcards, card making kits.  All on this delightful CD.

I printed one script sheet, one butterfly and flowers sheet for the backgrounds and one pyramid topper sheet, to make this card. Very quick and simple. With the addition of a heart punch by Martha Stewart and paper roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.

You can join in the Challenge HERE Have fun.

Kraftyhands Seeds of Love CD


 Today I have a selection of cards for you from the New release from Kraftyhands. I have used and 8x8 card for the first one. Using one of the card sets on the CD.

This one, I have cut a tent card on my cameo, with a frame front. The size is 7 x 5. I have used the woodgrain paper from the CD as the backing, which I used mounting foam on, to make the mount lay back a bit from the front of the frame.
I printed and cut out 2 sheets of the pansy decoupage so that I could fill the frame. The Ivy leaf punched corner is from Joanna Sheen.




I used the wood print backing paper here, print on both sides of an A4 card. Then I used the new Berry Box die from Stampin Up. To make the little basket. You can purchase this from me if you are interested. I cut seed packet envelopes on my cameo and used the floral toppers from the CD.

 .

A lovely group of items from this pretty floral CD. In a vintage style.  You can see these items and many more from the Design team, on The British Craft Network on the 2nd of February.


Thank you for stopping by today.

Quick and easy card.

A Special Christmas Card


I was asked to make a special card using Angels. I found this set of Etsy. I made the box using my new A3 scoreboard from Craft Companions. I love it. The A3 box card is also from them. What great quality.

Our beautiful Grandson Finn, came to make Christmas chocolate gifts for the family. So here he is with the finished products. Everyone who had them, scoffed them down in no time.


He threw onto the melted chocolate, anything and everything! haha but we had fun.

Finally today, the card I made him for Christmas.
I made Elsie one and Megan one too but forgot to take photos of those ones.

I hope to get a bit more organised with my postings now we are into the New Year.

Happy New Year everyone.
