Happy New Year!

Hello! And welcome to a brand new shiny sparkly year! Hope it is a great one for all of us!

I received a Stix2 Design Your Own 2016 Calendar kit and couldn’t wait to get started on it. My hubbys district nurse let slip that she would love a calendar with her own name on each page…no prizes for guessing who I made the calendar for then 😉

I will share a couple of months at a time otherwise it will be the longest blog post ever, if you have any questions please comment underneath and I will reply as soon as I can, or tweet me.

Here are January and February’s Pages.

I have tried to incorporate events of the month into the page, like love hearts etc. These are also a great way to have fun and try different layouts and use up Project Life cards and odd bits of paper.

I have trimmed my main piece of paper to 8×8″ and it leaves a really nice border around it.

Hope this inspires you to make your own calendar using this great product from Stix2.


Card with Sarah Hurley Sentiment Stamps, Banner Cameo Files and Stix2 Stardust Glitter Card.

Hello, I am slowly getting back to crafting and blogging after my extended break.  Today I am sharing a clean and simple card using Sarah Hurleys Sentiment Stamps, Sarah’s Cameo files and Stix2 Stardust Glitter card.

1  Select which colours of Stix2 Stardust Glitter Card you would like to use, I opted for a black base and contrasting bright colours.

2  Lay down your base layer, then cut 3 different sized banners from the colours and one white banner to stamp your sentiment onto.

3  Put your card together and the sentiment of your choice onto the white banner. Place 3d foam behind the banner to give the card some dimension.

Thanks for popping by today, I hope you like the card.
