A Card for Peg !

Hello ! 
I have a Birthday card to show you today which I have made for a very special friend ! Not only is she a crafting genius and a great inspiration to me but she is also a very dear friend who I spend hours talking crafting with !!! She loves PINK so that was an obvious choice !!! Happy Birthday Peg !! 

Lots of different layered elements including heat embossing, stamping, die cutting and punching make up this card ! I loved making it because pink is my favourite colour too !! 
Happy Crafting !!

Where I Create !

I love the publication " Where Women Create " ! I just love to see the environment in which the designers create all their beautiful art and crafts - how they have the space set out and organised - it's so inspirational !! So today I thought I would share with you my little creative space ! It's not a studio ( I live in hope ! ) just a spare room upstairs set up with all my lovely stash - it's my little haven and now it's organised and functional I love it ! Come in and take a look !!! 

I need a little more table space because I am an incredibly messy crafter but apart from that it's pretty much perfect !!! 
Thanks for dropping by today - happy crafting !

Back to My Roots !

Good Morning ! 
Having recently tidied my craft room I discovered lots of gorgeous goodies that I just didn't know I had purchased or had forgotten that I owned - it was a joy really and saved me lots of pennies in the New Year !! I have been thinking about my style of crafting and think this piece really shows  exactly everything I am as a crafter - a little shabby , definitely a little vintage , my love of soft muted colours and a love of all things pretty !!! It's a 10 x 10 inch layout which I have mounted as a piece of wall art ! Lots of photos !!! 

I loved doing this layout and - so nice to have my new routine of working in the mornings and allowing myself the pleasure of some much needed crafting in the afternoons !! Long may it last !!! 
Thanks for stopping by ! 
Happy crafting !

Big Beautiful Butterflies !

Hello !! Have you seen the first butterfly of the season yet ? I was looking out of the window a few days ago ( it was one of those days that made you feel like Spring had finally arrived ) and there was the biggest lime green butterfly I have ever seen flitting across the garden in the sunlight ! It just seemed too cold to see a Butterfly but there it was - a little piece of Summer !! I love to use butterflies in my crafting and here are two cards I made at the end of last week ! 

Thank you so much for stopping by - I do appreciate your visits even though I don't post as often as I would like ! My life is full with my new business and crafting has now become a relaxing hobby again - which is lovely and I'm looking forward to exploring new avenues of creativity and just enjoying crafting for myself  !!

Early Valentines Day Layout !

Hello ! 
It has been chaos here in the last few weeks and my craft room has been moved which as you know is not an easy 5 minute job !!! I have had to reorganise everything and in the process sort out all my stash - how on earth did it get so out of control?? On the upside I have found lots of gorgeous stash I didn't even know I owned and can't even remember buying !! Does any of this sound familiar ?? Now order has been resorted, except that I can't find most things now they have been tidied away !!! However I have finally managed to do some crafting in preparation for a class I am teaching on Valentines day - traditional colours and a return to my vintage style too !! So within my comfort zone !!! 

Hopefully I will now get in the craft room a little more often although I yearn for more space ( don't we all !! ) ! Happy crafting and thanks for stopping by !
