Alice In Fiskars Land


I made this 3d scene for one of my Fiskarettes UK design team posts.I love Alice in Wonderland! I have had a set of little wooden tables for ages, but I have never used them! So I finally decided I would put one together, and then continued to have a lot of fun creating the Alice scene around it. 

The Fiskars 3 in 1 tag maker is brilliant it easily cuts through shrink plastic! After punching it out I wrote ”Drink Me” onto it before shrinking it and tying it around the minature bottle. I then punched out a lots of hearts and painted them red, and glued them vertically up from the top of the table.The  circle punch was really useful to punch out a clock from some patterned paper, and I also used the beautiful butterfly punch to perch a butterfly on the edge of the  table.
I finished by adding some small playing cards which came out of  a Christmas cracker, and lots of other embellishments such as a hanging key, a pot etc etc

The lovely Alice stamp is made by Carabelle Studio

Love Letters





I must apologize for not posting very much so far this year, but I have been in hospital. I am feeling much better now and I am happily back to crafting and getting all inky : )

Well February has snuck up on us, and that of course means all things love for Valentines. For my first Indigoblu project this month I decided to decorate these wooden letters, unfortunately I didn’t have a matching ”O” but I found a slightly larger papier mache one. I hope it works.... a few more details as are on the Indigoblu blog.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you are well and having lots of fun crafting. I have lots to catch up on.

Floral Notebook


Hello, and if this is your first time here a very warm welcome to you! I hope you will enjoy your visit, please leave me a comment as I would love to visit your blog too. I hope you have escaped all of the nasty winter bugs going around, I am so looking forward to the spring! 
Today I would like to share my Floral Notebook with you, which I created for Indigoblu. Indigoblu make amazing, unique and very high quality rubber stamps which are all manufactured right here in the UK. Their new floral stamps are just gorgeous and are a joy to colour !

This is how I created my notebook. 




I removed some pages from an old book, this one happened to be “Wind In The Willows” I tore the pages into large strips, and adhered them  to both sides of the  notebook covers using Super Thick Slap It On.



Using a Versamarker ink pad I stamped the flowers and heat embossed them with brown embossing powder.
After colouring the flowers with Indigoblu paints I fussy cut them.I added some Mulberry Bush (this is my new favourite colour) paint to the edges of the notebook.I used sticky foam pads to adhere the flowers to the cover.I also added some pressed flowers to the cover.


I tied ribbons and twine to the book rings, and then stamped the anemones on the bottom of each of the inside pages.

Fiskarettes Design Team Reach For The Stars


I am very happy and honoured to reveal today that I have joined the talented Fiskars UK Design Team. I will be creating with them for the next 3 months. I have been crafting since I was old enough to use scissors, and I have always used Fiskars scissors and trimmers. I have found them to be of the highest quality and never let me down.

My first project for Fiskarettes UK is ‘Reach For The Stars”

I painted the box frame in a metallic white paint and punched stars out of masking paper and placed them over the top. I then painted over the frame in blue paint, and when dry I  removed the stars.

For the hills I used the circle punch and folded them in half and overlapped them, adhering them together.I covered the hills in texture paste before painting them.

I used invisible thread to hang  one of the glittery stars from the inside top of the frame

The lovely girl Stamp is drawn by the amazingly talentedPhyllis Harris and made by  Unity Stamps 


Thank you for visiting and Happy 2018 xx
