I'm a little teapot, short and stout....

As you can see I'm catching up on some posts LOL! Well I have been so absent of late I think it's rude not to share haha!

Here's another Winston make....
LOVE this little teapot how cute...And you know the best thing? This took about 15 mins to make once the bits were cut beacuse I took all the elements from the CD and put them into my Cameo Silhouette and bob's your uncle, boom, clap, sound of my heart and it was all cut and all I did was add a bit of glue....
Don't forget you can also get the Winston collection as a full CD download HERE, it's a must have!

Having a Ballet little rest....

Yo! Hope you're all doing great!
Just wanted to pop on by and show you this little cutiepie!

I adore this Ballerina image which is available as part of our Work & Play 2 collection and also on individual digistamp here.

I coloured this one with Distress Markers to give me a really soft feel but they are sooo vibrant and lush I'm a little in love I must confess!

See you soon! x

It's an Anniversary of Kraft!

Just thought I'd share a make with you from the lovely Winston Collection (you can also get this on download here

I wanted to create a Bear collection for such an age but every time I was ready to start sketching and creating it seemed someone else released a bear collection too...and if there's one thing I hate it's overkill and being 'the same' as everyone else or jumping on the bandwagon LOL! So it's taken 5 years for us to get our Bears and it had to be something special!

If you love bears you'll love Winston - but even if you don't you will ADORE it anyway as a collection in it's own right because there is a TON of stuff in this collection and the core basis of it is that it is Kraft paper based and full of sepia tones and pastels to die for.

The image used here was printed straight from the collection and is a precoloured image just placed on a kraft cardstock. The 'Anniversary' which you can't see well at the top is actually one of the lush cutting files, as is everything else from the collection too including the fab little wood effect sentiment.

See you back soon!

SO exciting!....Gorjuss fings!

OMG I cannot believe how absent I've excuses really other than work work work as usual but I know that it is just not good enough and I promise to try harder, honestly I do!!
I'm going to try and catch up with some posts of things I've made and not really been able to show you!

Well firstly I've been hiding this under my hat for a few months now dying to tell you that I am very honoured indeed to have been chosen to be part of the DoCrafts Creativity Magazine team! I consider this a great honour because there are some superbly talented people who submit projects to Creativity and I am very excited to be part of it.  The DoCrafts range of products has undergone some massive changes recently and every time I go in my local Range or Hobbycraft stores here I paw every packet of goodies on those shelves I can tell you! They have some amazing stash and unfortunately for my purse most of it is right up my street LOL!...
One of the ranges that they stock which I have adored from Day one is of course,
it seems to have been around forever now but I never tire of it, I just adore the whole style and everything about it so when I was asked to create something using the amazing Ultimate Die-cut & Paper Gorjuss kit I was beside myself with glee!....

As you can imagine, this was a total joy to make for me....
You need to get a copy of Issue 52 of Creativity Magazine for the instructions on how I made this...
it was much easier than it looks and uses some key products you really NEED in your stash!....the photo doesnt do the dimension justice really, the front panel is a big box panel which stands about an inch proud from the card to make a lovely frame for the character (I made a box for this to be sent in)...
I am such a dimensional, pile it high and build those layers girl so I really went to town here....

The kit is stunning and it goes for miles and miles and miles! considering how much 'stuff' is on here I barely touched the kit and I think I must have 95% of it still left it's such great value for money!
