Happy New Year/exciting news...

Dear bloggers,

I haven't got a new piccy for you today, just Happy new year wishes and hope you had a fabulous Christmas. Feel free to leave me a comment and let me know how your time over the holidays was spent and what you got up to.

I had my wonderful son home for the last week and I am having to let him go back to Uni tomorrow so I definitely feel a slow sadness creeping on as I have enjoyed every second of my time with him this last week. What a special young man he has grown in to. My daughter lives with me still after finishing Uni and has been here all of Christmas but is going off into London for new year so I will miss her too... Time grows and they grow up too fast for sure.

I do have a little very exciting news for you all though... Last week I sent off all my Christmas creations that I had been asked to do for the Fabulous Craftwork Cards. Most of you will know I have made a few bits for them over the last few months after meeting the lovely Julie at a show in the summer. Well, I pulled out all the stops with my birdhouse card and they loved it so much that they asked me if I would like to be on the design team officially! Well, I cannot tell you how very happy I am, and that night I was inundated with emails from all the girls on the team already welcoming me and I am still so incredibly humbled by how wonderfully welcoming they have all been! I am amazed and so very touched at the warmth I have been shown. Thank you, ladies! I can't wait to work with you all. Since then I have been officially been added to their facebook design team site as a designer and also to the official Craftwork cards blog:

Please go and take a look at how wonderful this team have been in welcoming me and have a look around their site, and if you fancy purchasing any bargains
you're in for a real treat if you pop on and have a look too.

Well, I want to thank you all for being so nice in leaving your comments since I started this blog and some very exciting times are coming so please keep coming on and supporting me! You're all so lovely. I will be adding some creations over the next couple of days so check back with me soon.
Happy new year to everyone 2013 is almost here , big hugs to you all.

Oh Christmas Branch haha...

Good evening lovelies.
I made a nice little card with some Kraft cards sent to me with my Craftwork card goodies, so I made up another Christmas card for them! Of course I have to share it with you all to see if you like it and that I'm still on the right tracks.

I do love receiving your comments, as it's good to have another crafter's opinion too, I think! And also it keeps you grounded.

I just heard the sad news that Patrick Moore passed away earlier and it is very sad; he was a funny, eccentric guy but my late husband was a huge fan of his work so it's very sad. His family must be devastated at the loss so I want to pass on our condolences to his family. If you don't know who Patrick Moore was (have you been hiding forever?), he was a very clever scientist who had a very dry sense of humour and some, as I said, very eccentric ways, playing a xylophone on stage in said crazy manner was one of them, haha! But he was also a very nice man who found time to always help others too. R.I.P Patrick. My husband passed on the 14 Dec last year so maybe they are finally meeting up and having a chat now. Sad week ahead.

Now back to my little card...

  • So i started with my Kraft card and cut out some red card for the base and the back pieces, sticking them on and setting them aside.
  • Then cut an embossed swiss dot type card and rounded corners, and also inked edges to show up the dots and contrast with the red.
  • I matted that on foam pads and onto a piece of checked paper from Craftwork cards Christmas pad, adding a small strip of American seem binding across the bottom before adding pads.
  • Inside the embossed pad was some dye cuts of trees and birds etc so I took a tree x 2 and a circle to use as the moon and a long branch. I inked all pieces and added sparkle where needed and also punched out some circles from the sparkly gorgeous paper pad too for the baubles hanging from the tree.
  • As this is going to be an Easel card I stuck my art panel to the base at this stage and attached my stopper which was a strip of card and a Happy New Year sign in gold and also and & sign as I new I wanted to have With Love at Christmas on the top piece.
  • So I attached a piece of gold trellis to my dotty panel and then inked my moon with distress ink in chipped sapphire, a rich deep blue and covered it in a shimmery Sakura pan and water brushed it out to give a moonlight sparkle.
  • Working on the tree next, I coloured 2 trees in gathered twigs and a coppery sakura pen, again water brushed out a little. The bottom layer I didn't fuss too much with but the top one I tried to have one side darker away from the moon etc. I stuck down the first piece then for dimension matted the next on foam and rounded it a little. The twig I mounted onto foam after colouring and added to the top of tree and in front of moon.
  • I used a small piece of green ribbon in strips from the branch. and added a tiny tied piece to the top of 2 baubles I made from punch 1" circles out and mounting them onto a slightly larger piece of red card. I also pierced a small whole in each and added a jump ring and a tiny Chrystal that I added to a headpin and snipped off the excess. Some of the pics don't have the crystals and some do.
  • I added them to the card and nice bow to the base of the tree with an iridescent sparkle in middle then I needed to dress the tree so I inked up some leaves and curled them added them randomly to cover the gaps in twigs and also I used some card candi in the Christmas designs to add to my tree.
  • A Couple more stones and sentiment features and the last thing needed was a few flowers to the base and a leaf. 
  • Et voila.... done. 
I hope your enjoyed looking at this one I sometimes wonder where these ideas pop in from! But I love the finished result, so I hope you do too.

Oh Monday again and back to work and dragging my heels. I really am not enjoying these cold, dark mornings and would love to ship off somewhere new to start a new career... Ahhh... the dreams, haha!
Have a great week guys!

Let me know your thoughts on jewellery items added to cards for movement... What do you think?

Out for now...

Another Santa note..

Well good evening my lovelies!

Well hasn't it turned cold woooo every night from work I rush in and shiver 'til I get my steaming tea to wrap my hands around! Winter is definitely breathing down our necks now... with the icy fronds encountering our extremities turning them red first then blue... Making patterns in the air with our breath on the icy morn. Ooo I should write a story with literature in that vane.

I started this  card really by making up all the little flowers from Craftwork's Christmas pad. so I had them all sitting there jostling in the box for my attention, pick me! pick me! haha...
Next I took an 8x8 card base (still my favourite size) and with Versamark ink, I stamped holly leaves around the edge, I used Pan pastels to rub over and add the green to the inked sticky surface. I water coloured some red berries in in odd places to just draw your eye in.

  • I matted the first mat with a sheet of red glitter paper from Craftwork Cards Christmas pad on to gold mirri.
  • Next, I took a sheet of the embossed card in one of their pads and ran over 2 colours of Ink from His lordship sir Tim holtiness.. fired brick and pine needles. Just lightly to bring out the embossing a little, which was then matted onto mirri too.
  • My bow was American seem binding which is so soft and lovely and flexible to work with. Adding a button to the centre of the bow and 2 stick pins made sure Mr Bow was not naked...
  • I die cut the labels 20 large sheet of paper and ever so slightly inked and added it to the card, I coloured my sentiment from the pack, cut out a little die cut to add to the frame around the sentiment and then piled on all the gorgeous flowers and flourishes, some card candi too.
  • Added my gorgeous Clarity personalised stamp with my name on to the back, et voila... tis done..

As always I hope You enjoy looking at the card and maybe trying a few things out too
Crafty Hugs.
Out for now

Birdhouses and Santa.

Hi All.
So sorry haven't been blogging so much, I have had so many orders to get done that I have gotten a little slow with it, but I really miss coming on a seeing your comments so here I am, I am still making a few items to give to Craftwork card for Christmas and tonight I thought Id use one of their lovely bird house blanks to make up so here it is then I got a flash of inspiration an thought Id turn it into a box haha, so here it is... hope you like it, let me know.

So for this card/box I took my birdbox card and snipped it in half to start and covered both halves in corresponding papers from of course the brilliant Craftwork cards, the lovely Julie Hickey had sent me a big bag of bits to make some Christmas goodies and so I have been making them up but have also had some commissions for artwork to get done, I have been working on a line drawing in pencil of an MG motor vehicle for a guy I work with.And yet another lady is pregnant so another crochet blanket is in the offering.
Anyway back to the card...
  • After covering each half , I took some very sturdy black card and used my Crafters companian ultimate pro to make a box up that is smaller than the card but still large enough for either a bag of goodies or to put in a false bottom and have some birdies pop up as you open it like a suprise box, something like that, may have even a little faux nest but then I would associate that with Easter more than Christmas .
  • I seem to be waffling tonight maybe it is because its 12.38 and I should I suppose be attempting sleep as Its work tomorrow, really wish My job was in the craft industry, I'm working hard on that but it is very hard to get into. I would love to bring out my own stamp range so who knows maybe one day I will get that chance.
  • I also covered the black box I made just on the outside with again the matching papers, amazing quality they are too.
  • I then attached the front and back to the box and made sure all the adhesives were covered.I added some American seem binding as ribbon around the outside of box and also all over what would be the eves of the house near the roof. Making also a sort of bow on the top inside the roof area by making up 3 loops in varying sizes gluing them in place and adding a small piece of binding around it to look like a triple bow.Finishing it with some candi here and also along the eves again inside and out.
  • Next i die cut the circle from Spellbinders splendid circles for around the window, I was going to cut it out and leave acetate in the aperture but last min I thought I'd use it for the sentiment but I may make another and do that so you can look into the box.
  • I cut out lots of leaves with my Grand calibur too and and the pack of flowers that came with the birdhouses I rolled them and embossed them a little to make them rounder , then rolled them or curled them up, one I made up into like a rose by gradually sticking down each set of petals one at a time. It doesn't show on the picture as I took these photos just before I decided to make 3 tiny flowers with the Donna Salazar bitty blossoms dies from spellbinders (amazing).
  • I made sure my box opened and closed and added some finger holes to make it easy. Glued all my flowers with Pinflair and there we have it, I am still in 2 minds regarding the sweetie or little birdy things popping out but anyway the main thing is done.
I hope that you get chance to come on and have alook If so leave me a comment I don't bite.
Have a great Monday and   hopefully I will get chance to pop on and added the other card I made today.
Love to all

A Note From Santa.

Good evening all...

Hope everyone had a good weekend and Monday was bearable... I really am not a Monday person , the day I like is Thursday , Thursday is an underrated day I think... it is a nearly there day that is unless it is your Saturday to work, which it just happens to be mine this week errrkkkk... Anywho .
Another Christmas in the Craftwork Inn and A note from Santa was my inspiration...

That and I love this ribbon I found at a local market stall, It has lots of flecks of gold sparkle in the fabric and the ends are wired just enough to mould it into prettiness.

Here is a close up of my lovely sparkly swirls and flowers made with the gorgeous sparkly
Craftwork cards papers , you can just see the embossed back ground , I ran the paper through my m-bossibility folder and ran an ink pad really lightly over it in gold.
then matted my sparkly paper over an added my flowers again made from the flowers in the paper pad.
A spotty Happy Christmas inside with accents in Candi completes my little 6x6 card, part of my project for Craftwork Christmas 2012.
Has everyone started making their cards yet? or are you last minute crafters?
If anyone is on facebook feel free to add me or send me a message or ask anything Crafty, I am always happy to help.
My addy is
Plus I post my cards there too ...
Have a great Monday evening everyone.

Christmas Craftwork Style..

Good evening Bloggers,
Haven't been on for about a week, so I'm sorry to have neglected Blogland! I have had a horrendously busy week but wanted to share a card I mad for Craftwork cards using their gorgeous Christmas stock.
The lovely and amazingly talented Julie asked if I would do a few Christmas cards for them and sent me some lovely stock to design with and this is one of the ones created so far.
What do you think?

  • I started with the musical notes background made by Just Rite stamps which I love right now.
  • I matted it onto the beautiful glittered paper from Craftwork Cards... sparkly goodness which isn't showing in the picture but it has this green glitter all over which lights up soon as the light catches it.
  • I matted that on to black then onto milk card and added some more sparkly paper just at the sides which was matted onto a piece of red card. All of this is then added to another black mat to my Kraft card base.
  • Cutting out one of the card wraps and attaching to the top right came next. A bow to the top left with a dazzler in the centre, no naked bows here... 
  • I  added two wraps of mink colour ribbon top left and bottom right also before cutting out some swirls in the green glitter card and also the chevron sparkle paper. I added the chevron swirls on the left with a made flower in centre and the green ones you can just see under the flowers on the card.
  • I had already made up lots of ther flowers from the Craftwork Card Christmas pad and used several that matched on the bottom left.
  • Next, I stamped "ho ho ho" with the print font also Craftwork onto red paper, then matted onto black, covered in glossy accent so lots of shiny goodness.
  • Lastly, I inked my sentiment and added it. Also, I added lots of card candi and liquid pearl drops, plus a piece of skinny sparkly green ribbon up the spine of card, and added some extra pieces tied off and snipped to look like tinsel.
Well there you go, I hope you all enjoy this card as I really love how it has turned out.
Sorry again for disappearing for a while, more tomorrow from me!

Gorgeous Kanban

Evening , well actually just turned morning, where does time go, just disappears.
ahhh well .. I was digging in my crafty stash to see what inspiration hit and 2 things Kanban and Spellbinders and I was off.. here is my creation for today, hope you like it.
  • I started by matting this pretty Kanban card onto black card then I cut out the black fretwork in the back. I cut my sentiment and flowers, butterflies, swirls and cut the scallops off the fretwork for the bottom of card, all the element except the black fretwork was cut from the vintage paper pad also from Kanban.
  • I glued down just a little of the fretwork either side of where my topper was going. the outer floral frame was next to be added then my topper which I used Pinflair glue for so I could mould a more domed effect to it.
  • I rolled up my flowers from the spiral flowers number 1 from spell binders,  then painted them blue, drying them with a heat tool between layers then  added some pan pastel to the edges. I cut a few other flowers, one I added a butterfly to the other an iridescent stone to.
  • I used the heartfelt stamps to stamp the pattern on my sentiment and embossed it in white. very pretty.
  • A messy bow and a few more sparkly stones and swirls plus some sakura pen on the  roses for some sparkle and it was done...
Here are the flowers, you can see I cut into the fretwork to create leaf effects.
I love using Kanban as the quality is always great and uncoated cardstock means I can alter things just how i want to.
Anyway guys have a great tuesday and hope the weather stops this horrid rainging, soo miserable and was even foggy this a.m Typical british weather thats for sure.

Take care

Happy Anniversary..

Evening Guys!

Tonight I am sharing with you all a card I made for my friend Keithy's mum whose been with her hubby Nigel for 25 years and they were celebrating their Silver Wedding Anniversary. So Congratulations to them and a big thanks to Nigel for photographing it for me as he is a photographer so therefore I have a proper photo taken and didn't he do a good job, my work looks fab and so nice to see good shots of it. The lilac on the card was the same colour they had had their wedding all them years ago and Keithy asked me to make it with a stiletto of some kind on it as Mum still had the one they chose to have on the cake and I found I had this one in a kit I had from Hunkydory I believe so I was lucky I had it to match for them. So thanks again and thanks to Keith for setting up the picture session.
I made it also with Chloe stamps and sat and embossed and cut out every flower and added them all separately, I loved making it.
Have a great Friday

Kanban prettiness..

Good Evening All.
Hope you all had a good day. I had a nice dinner out today with my daughter, very nice.
I made a lovely little number which I hope you all like after getting home.
  • I took an 8x8 card and covered it with a tiny border with one of the gorgeous papers from Kanban's vintage pad. Then I embossed another tonal piece with an m-bossibilities A4 embossing folder from spellbinders. I mounted it on foam and wrapped my ribbon around it.

  • I love the colours in this Kanban topper so next I mounted the outside frame of the topper on foam and the middle part I put on sightly higher foam, tucking in a swirl just under the edge before moving on to the flower which was cut out of the left over paper which I embossed earlier.
  • So I cut out some swirls and a flower an rolled it up , inked the petals in two colours.Added some tiny pearls an some sakura stardust pen to the swirls and edges of leaves/petals.I also rolled up a thin piece of the paper and squeezed it leaf shape and added it to the flower configuration.

  • After inking the edges of this beautiful sentiment I added it to the ribbon at the lower right of the card.
  •  I tied a smart bow out of this very wide ribbon and added a die cut leafy branch and a studio 490 resin flower which i inked slightly just to tone in with the theme of my card. You can also see in this picture that I inked the edge of the embossing under the bow which brings it all together and enhances the embossing nicely too.
  • I cut out 2 very tiny little butterflies and added them to balance the right hand side of the topper with tiny pearls down the body to finish off.
Well I hope you like Wednesday's card and think it is very pretty as I really do love showing you my creations and appreciate any comments and views.
Have a good night and take care.
Best wishes

Lattice Bloom.

Hi All.. goodness what a long week.
I'm sorry I haven't been on here much AGAIN this week.
But I hope my card has made up for not being on. I really like how pretty this one came out.
I used my new spell binder dies along with some love Craftwork cards papers and Tim's inks as always.
I cut out my rose and leaves and inked and glittered them , so pretty and you can see some extra flowers made from Craftworks vintage pad with lots of lovely flowers.
This was my Sentiment which was on the Rubbernecker stand at Ally Paly on the day Sue Wilson from spellbinders was there too. I got a whole bag of sentiments etc for a fiver.. nice.
I did quite a bit of matting and layering for this one with a nice gold Mirri card. and the lattice was cut and mounted onto foam to raise it up a little too.
I weaved a little piece of ribbon through the lattice on the right added a bow nd 2 tiny butterflies I cut from my dies too. I sanded the edges of the lattice and rubbed in some ink too.
different but nice.
Hope you have a great Saturday folks and that it doesn't rain anymore.
Sorry it isn't a long post but i will be back tomorrow

Sunday, 7 October 2012


Hello everyone, hope you have had a great Sunday!

My son went back to university today, so there was lots of blubbing, but that's just me as always. It's funny, their nanny used to blub every time we all left her after a holiday with her, and now I know exactly why she felt that way. He is doing fantastically well with his PhD though, so I am extremely proud of him and all his achievements.

I got back in from dropping him off at the station and I had tea waiting for me, so my daughter knew how I was going to be upon walking in the door...  haha!

Anyway, I still managed a little card this afternoon before he left, so I thought I would share it with you.

Small, but perfectly formed.
Have a good Monday everyone...

2 post Saturday.

Evening all, I have 2 cards for you tonight.

The first is very feminine, and the second is actually pretty masculine.

Hope your all having a good weekend so far, and I hope the folks at the Great North papercraft event up in Harrogate are having a great time, (I so wish I was there). I hope my cards got to Craftwork cards in time to be at the event too. Anyway we are having really rotten rain here in Hertfordshire so I hope you're faring better where you are.

Have a great Saturday evening, or what's left of it.

This is a bit of a hybrid haha, I used the spellbinders Pick of the day I got from create and craft, but I did it with Kanban card stock and used creative expressions ribbon and pins. The background is gorgeous; it is one of spellbinders new A4 embossing folders, yummy. The lovely sentiment is also from Kanban and was Dawn Wheeler's kits which were really pretty vintage kits that came out just a few months back and was very nice.

This one I started with the animal print paper and mounted it on black card stock. I cut out a background piece from white card and inked it with distress to match the back. I wrapped a ribbon around and added a small bow and a piece of Candi.

I cut out this very ornate small d-lite from spellbinders, which I mounted on black card again. I put the lattice onto mounting foam to raise it up fro the design and then I used some black enamel accents from Ranger and placed small dots in the cross of the lattice (took a while neck now killing lol). I
added my sentiment which I inked and added Best wishes to.

Very happy with that.. I can do a man's card woo hoo...
See you tomorrow guys!

Gnpe xmas card.

Good Evening Folks
Well tonight I was coming home from doing a couple of hair cuts..(past life) lol
Another form of art hey.
Well it dawned on me how cold windy and rainy it was and that's when it hit.. winter is clawing at our heels again.. errrkkk. I don't like the cold at all, it makes me miserable but at least we put on heating and cuddle up and craft, some don't have that so no more feeling sorry just get on with the craft I say... My daughter has a good way to get hot though as I lay up here cuddled up and getting warm she is downstairs leaping around getting fit to Shaun T and his Insanity workout programme. It's quite soothing listening to the rhythmic sounds of her feet pounding on the floor over and over and over.. hmmm maybe not but it works she is very fit and tiny.
Anyway enough of my ramblings... Still using my lovely Bohemian kit from Craftwork cards I challenged myself to make a xmas card .
The sparkly paper is so pretty I knew I could and I already had their sentiments in the little round disks so off I went.
  • I used a card blank I got from QVC the other week which had baubles hanging on the sides so using that as inspiration I cut a piece of black card in half and made sure they were the same.
  • Then chose a piece of paper and cut the parts I wanted from it to mat on to the black pieces.
  • I took a strip of paper and punched the edge making it decorative. Then punched some large circles and some slivers of black card.
  • It was just a case of mounting it on foam and matting and layering the baubles with the sentiment circles on the front of the card, using the black slivers as chain replacements for the baubles and adding lots of Candi in strategic places.
  • On the inside I matted again the same paper on black and added another couple of baubles with the sentiment sayings for Xmas and then noticed on the left hand side I managed to pick up a bit of ink on my nice white card... arrrggg oh nooooo , don't you just hate that so I punched out a strip to match the front and added that to left side and then punched small bauble shapes and added the black slivers as little chain type hangers for the balls.
  • I added my name stamp to the back as always to finish off.
I'm happy with the result I know we all love a good traditional Xmas card with Santa and Rudolf etc but I think there is also a place for some classy and elegant designs too and the paper from this pad definitely fits the bill.
I posted all my samples up to the girls at Craftwork cards today so they will have them for the show at the weekend, I really wish I  was going with them but I wish them all a really happy and fab time at the show and hope it is really productive too.
Have a good one Girls.
Have a great Thursday all.
Kim xx

Best of Everything.

Well it's almost 4a.m UK time. And it's chilly.. I woke and couldn't sleep although thankfully the headache I seemed to have all day yesterday has gone yayyyy.
I managed to finish off all my samples yesterday for the GNPE stand for Craftwork Cards.
Here is one of them, A pretty little number if I do say so myself.
  • I die-cut a shape that I could ink and stamp a sentiment on first , then took a frame from the pack that would fit behind it. I inked very lightly a doilie to sit behind the frames.
  • I took my lattice punch to the purple piece of card that was in the Bohemian kit, then cut it in half.
  • I love to make flowers so I made several all different from the pack but also just from laying down some glue and sticking the Candi into it with a dded bling. Flowers need leaves so I stamped some and cut them out.
  • I cut a couple of mats and layers. 
  • Next I assembled the whole thing together above , firstly laying out all the pieces before gluing to make sure it sat well together. it is good to have a plan before you start so you know where you will end up on your project.
  • lastly I tied a double bow and after gluing into place added a piece of Candi and all the leaves I squeezed under flowers to finish.
Well. I hope everyone likes it I know I certainly enjoyed making it, definitely a fab kit to get. I have to post them up to Leeds tomorrow for the guys to take pics and put them on the stand over the weekend. Have a good Wednesday guys.

Bohemian Prettiness

Good evening, all!
I've had some time off work so I have finished off my samples for the paper craft show over the weekend; I promised to post them off for Thursday. Here is another of the cards using Craftwork cards fab kit The Bohemian lace collection.

I was a little sneaky with this one and used the front packing page of the pad as I liked the pink wrap.
  • I matted the paper from the pad onto some sparkly paper and added it to my 8x8 card base. Then I cut out the wrap of the paper pad which had the pretty circle pattern which you can see above the flowers.
  • I then took one of the silver frames and inked it lightly with Milled lavender distress, I raised it up on foam pads but stuck it on top the pink circle then added a sentiment also inked in the mid of the circle.
  • Then decided to emboss the chain and key on the pattern in the paper to make it stand out. I took another page cut out the birdcage and embossed that too. I  shaped it and mounted it on 2 layers of foam just in the middle of the cage.
  • I cut out the butterfly shape and punched the pattern out of the wings, adding some bling along the body. I added some gold lattice net type stuff under the body too. 
  • Next, I made a few flowers and added some metal little keys on top of the ones on the paper and some metal leaves with the flowers.
  • Lastly I had a little card heart pressed from the middle of a birdcage in the kit and embossed it in pink and white, then added it to the top right of the card.
All in all a very pretty card from a pretty kit and I have loved using it.

Hope you all had a great day, it's been miserable and windy all evening so here's hoping for a sunny day tomorrow!
