Anniversary Card.

Hello, today I am going to share a card I made for a friends wedding anniversary. I was stunned to find they were married 18 years, I am sure, like me, she was a child bride ūüėČ

I am loving the Swirly Scribbles dies from Stampin Up and have turned into my go-to dies for most cards. If you would like any more information about Stampin Up products, please feel free to email me at

I also used the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set from Stampin Up for this card, and I am loving my new Hero Arts Ombre Ink Pads.

Another Week, Another Planner Layout.

Hello, where is this month going? I am about to share another planner layout with you and I can’t believe it’s halfway through August already.

When I plan the week ahead I like to pick a trio of colours that compliment each other, I always make sure I have the pens and ink in the colours too and of course a cheeky wee planner clip or 3!

Full details of where everything is from is on the same photo on my Instagram.

Pretty Butterflies

Hello, today I am sharing a birthday card I made for one of my crafty besties who absolutely loves greens.

I thought I would have a play with the gorgeous new Painted Butterflies Stamps from Altenew that I got when the team at had a great special offer on.

1 Measure out a piece of white card 5″x3″ and stamp your butterflies in the lightest shade you are using.
2  Using the darker shade stamp the outline of the butterflies over the lighter shade.
3 Apply DST to the back of your piece of card and place it onto some green card, using a perfect layers ruler trim the paper down to create a border.
4  Put lots of 3d foam on the back of your green card and place it on the card.
5 Stamp your sentiment et voila!

Shark Attack!

Hello, I was recently asked to make a card for a guy who is going swimming with a great white shark later in the year. The card was from his kids so I didn’t want to make the shark too scary.

I used my Cameo and made this card, which the recipient loved.

Planner Pretties

Whenever I have a sneaky free hour when I get home at night, I love heading to¬†our craftroom engineering studio workshop to have a little “me” time with my trusty old Filofax!

I have,s0 far, resisted buying a new Filofax as I love the fact mine is plain old brown leather. However, when you open it there is nothing plain or boring about the inside and I really think this adds to the charm of it. Hubby bought me it as a wedding planner over 12 years ago and it is sturdy, reliable and been through a lot with me over the years. Anyway I digress…here is my first weekly tartification of my Websters Pages inserts.

Graduation Card

Hello from a rather driech and wet Glasgow, typical Fair holiday weather.

I am slowly catching up and uploading pics of my recent makes and blogging them when hospital Wi-Fi is playing nicely ūüėČ Hubby is engrossed in F1 so perfect time to blog with a nice coffee.

I made this card for a graduation, the brief was that the graduate like green.

graduation cardI used my trusty Cameo for the mortar board, what did I ever do without it?

The papers are digi papers that have a great selection of images that are just perfect for these cards.

I popped lots of 3d foam from Stix2 to add dimension to the card.

Thanks for popping by, I will be uploading more makes as the days go by.

It’s been a while…

*blows away cobwebs*

Well, it’s been quite a few months since I posted on here! There’s been a LOT going on behind the scenes here, which those who follow me on Instagram, Twitter or FB will have seen. Needless to say it’s been a rough few(5) months, but things are slowly getting better thankfully.

I have been crafting whenever I get a spare hour, which isn’t very often I have to admit and I have lots of new pretties to play with including new card, ¬†dies and stamps from the new Stampin Up catalogue. I whipped up a few super quick Thank You cards for my lovely customers who placed orders. The new colours are glorious!!

Thank you cards wm

If you would like any more information on Stampin Up or the products I used, please comment or message me.

I will be slowly catching up with blogging over the next few weeks I hope.

Thanks for dropping by,
