This one is using mirror card Claire Curd paper and Dufex decoupage. My latest fad is punching a couple of holes and tying wide organza ribbon in it.

This card is made using the blueberry hill paper mirror card and pearlescent decoupage.

This card was made using Claire Curds paper and mirror card. The scalloped edge was made by punching lots of small circles and sticking them to the back of the mirror card. The decoupage is from the pearlecent book at the Range.

This is a tri shutter card the dimensions of which I found on dawnsstampingthoughts. Her video tutorials are great so hop on over and have a peek. The papers I used were from blueberry hill and I used a piece of yellow coredination card and silver mirror card.

Get well soon


I was inspired to make this card after seeing a similar card on stamping moments blog by Jenny. I used a piece of coerdination card for the flower pot scored the base of the pot and sanded lightly. For the patterned top I ran a piece of the card through the impress and again sanded it. The flowers were made from stamped image I used the marie curie daisy and a couple of the stamps from the doodle set. This was all stuck on to a piece of card. I will be making this one at future demos.

Hi what fantastic weather we are having the sun is shining and we are all thinking about our holidays. With this in mind I will be away for a time so there will be some weekends when there will be no demos.

As you will know we had a fantastic response to our Marie Curie cancer care cards with a total of 1284. If you have any cards that you wish to donate to charity I am collecting these again. This time they will be sold to raise money for an orphanage in South Africa. Please bring them in to me by 27th June. I will then be thinking about our next venture.

We have had our first Christmas demo which went very well so do watch for more demos in the coming months. The next one will be 11th July.

The scrapbooking workshops are going very well so if you need more information do come along and see what we are all about. The weekend sessions fill up really quickly so do book your place a.s.a.p.

Technique Thursday is another of our ventures that is going well. Remember the aim of this is for you to have a go. If there is something that you want to know how to do ask me and I will try and sort it out for you.

On Thursday 4th and 18th June we will be making an envelope card/book. If you want to have a go join us at 5pm – 7.30pm bring along your basic tool kit which must include a cutting mat and some double sided tape. These sessions are normally free in order to keep to this you may be asked to bring along some of your own materials. For this session you will need to bring 7 envelopes all the same size as well as enough paper to cover them all front and back. You will need to come along to both sessions to complete the workshop. This will be repeated on 19th and 25th July.
