Happy Friday!!

Morning all, well it’s the weekend at last. The week at work has dragged and yet the evenings seem to have flown by in a haze of paint – my walls are now a shade of crumb cake Smile just the touch-ups and then the doors left to paint and we’re done – whoppeee! I can have some time back in my craft room then.

Not much inky going on around here this week – hence the lack of posts. However I have got my mini album from last week to show you. It’s a fold-out mini album as designed by the US demo Patty Bennett and I’ve used the Christmas Jingle scrap kit to decorate it.


If you’d like to have a go at making one, I have a few kits available. The kit contains everything you need to make and decorate the album and it would make a perfect gift for Christmas. The kits are £12 collected or £14 including P&P. you can purchase one using the buy it now button in the sidebar on the right.

I’ll be back early next week with another example of the album using the ‘One Great Year’ scrapping kit.

Have a great weekend!

Saturday at last – time to Welcome Christmas

Morning all, boy am I glad last week is over – not that there is any rest for the wicked, as I have classes all day today! today we’re beginning our Christmas preparations, this morning I’ve got a mini-album class (photos of that to follow tomorrow) and this afternoon I have my usual card class based on the ‘Welcome Christmas’ stamp set. So, enough babble, here are the projects


I really enjoyed, playing with this stamp set, and have tonnes more ideas floating around in my head now, so I guess I need to get inky Smile. For those of you unable to join us, the instructions will be up for sale in the sidebar later today. So in a little more detail:


We’ll be making twisted easel, centre stair and window cards, and a matching star-shaped box.

Right, I’d better go and get everything in the car and set off. Hope you have a relaxing day!

Almost the weekend–time for some peeks!!

Morning all, and thank goodness it’s Thursday. This week really seems to be dragging, and I can be sure that the weekend will fly by! I was supposed to be here yesterday, but ‘stuff’ got in the way, so here I am this morning with sneak peaks for my class this Saturday.


We’re using the Welcome Christmas stamp set with a vintage colour combination of Soft Suede, Real Red and Always Artichoke. The kit list for attendees wishing to bring their own tools is here.

I'll be back on Saturday to reveal the projects in full, in the meantime I’ve got decorating to finish!

See you soon.

Death by DIY…

Monday already?? but what happened to the weekend? and last week for that matter? I hope you all had a good week, unfortunately I barely made it out of our stairwell as I was painting all of the woodwork with 3 coats of satinwood  - it looks ever so bright now though. I’m hoping we might actually finish in there at some point in the next couple of weeks!

Given the never-ending DIY and housework I’ve had very little inky time of late, but I thought I’d pop by and show you the card and gift box which I made for my downline Elaine, who celebrated her birthday on 31st July.


I used the ‘Because I Care’ level 1 hostess set with a colour combination of concord crush and pear pizzazz. The concord crush layer is stamped with the head of the hydrangea from the set using concord crush ink. The box is a modified version of Lauren Meader’s ‘Disc-covered’ template, the papers are from the level 1 hostess paper stack.

That’s all I’ve got to share for today – I have the sneak peeks of the projects for this weekend’s classes coming on Wednesday, and the reveal on Saturday. I’m hoping for a little more time in my craft room later this week so that I can start inking up some of my lesser used sets!

Until Wednesday….
