Remarkably Created Blog Hop – Celebrating Easter!


Welcome to the RemARKably Creative – Easter -blog tour!

I am so excited to be taking part in this blog hop – Easter is one of my favourite times of the year. From the party atmosphere in church to the spring flowers that fill my home and garden. I thrive on a change of scenery and routine and Easter is all about new creation.


Daffodil Delight seemed like the perfect colour for this card and Basic Gray gives it a more up to date, contemporary twist.


The main sentiments are from the Happy Wishes stamp set which you can earn FOR FREE during Sale-a-Bration, it’s yours in clear or wood mount when you spend £90 in my online store.


Grab a FREE level 1 SAB item with every £45 spend or level 2 SAB item with £90 spend

Thank you so much for stopping by, the next blog is Celebrate the Journey. Be sure to check out the rest of the tour and everyone’s beautiful creations.
Be blessed!

Hearts Come Home – Picture

Hi all

I have a piece of home decor for you all today! The Hearts Come Home bundle is SO versatile for many crafting projects and I just had to make a cute little picture with it.


There’s even a die to make tags, you can see it top right on the image above. You can use the houses individually, cut them up or make an entire village!

Heart Come Home (1).png


I used an Ikea Tysslinge picture frame and it’s quite teeny! 8x9cm to be exact. As you can see I took just one house and tree, cut it 3 times in Real Red, Whisper White and Dapper Denim and paper pieced it to create a multi coloured image. Some Daffodil Delight was glued to the back to create a ‘glow’ in the windows. The tree was cut from Emerald Envy and Early Espresso with a Daffodil Delight star to top it off. The photo doesn’t show it well but I added some sparkle using Wink of Stella.

Teenage birthday wishes – Stampin' Up!

Hi all

Can’t believe that my little Nephew (who is in fact taller than me!) is going to be 13 this week. Obviously that calls for a card. He always opens his cards from me with a ‘I hope this is handmade’ Well of course!

Here’s how to make it:
  • Create a standard A6 card from Smoky Slate card 
  • Score the front panel in half and fold back, creasing the fold with a bone folder
  • Cut a piece of DSP to fit the front panel then use the other side for the inside of the card 10×14.5cm
  • Cut 2 circles using circles framelits one from Whisper White and the other Bermuda Bay
  • Stamp candles in Bermuda Bay, Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush then the flame in Daffodil delight. I find using a piercing mat under your card will give a sharper stamped image when working with photopolymer stamps.
  • Cut the 13 from Cucumber Crush using File Tabs die and glue with fine line of Multi Purpose Liquid Glue
  • Put Glue on Bermuda Bay circle on half the circle and glue to front panel
  • Add the stamped circle with dimensionals
  • Stamp Birthday Wishes in Cucumber Crush trim to size and create fishtail ends with Paper Snips, adhere to stamped image with dimensionals

I glued a piece of Whisper white on the back to add my message and stamped greeting.

CAS Colours and Sketches blog #119

Colour challenge – Spring has sprung!

Hi all

This weeks colour challenge had spring written all over it in my opinion and Stampin’ Up! have the perfect stamp set for it.

CAS Colours and Sketches challenge #116

and this is my entry
The From the Garden stamp set is just too adorable. It has matching framelits available as a bundle so you save 15% on the price when purchased separately.
I used Strawberry Slush thick bakers twine and pulled threads from it to give a more delicate finish.
Oops! I forgot to add the DSP is All Abloom Paper Stack

Final Week!

Sketch Challenge – Label Love

Hi all

I’m a little late with this week’s challenge, I usually make them on a Sunday but as it was Mother’s Day I was too busy being spoilt 🙂

This is the sketch challenge CAS colour and sketches blog set this week

Anything with a banner shape is just fine by me!
I used the Label Love bundle which come with the Artisan label punch saving you 15% on the price if you were to purchase these items separately. It’s a great stamp set with a good range of sentiments.
To give my punched sentiment a border I punched it out again twice in Daffodil Delight and cut them as per image below. Tombo (a wet adhesive) gives you that ‘wiggle room’ whilst lining up to create the perfect border.

Sketch challenge time! Spring is coming….

Hi all

It’s time to bring you my offering for this week’s challenge again!

Challenge #111 Sketch challenge

It’s really simple but it scared me a bit, I’m not too proud to admit that despite my approx 15 years of paper crafting experience! It’s not that it’s technically difficult, just out of my comfort zone.

This is my interpretation, made from a 5×5″ card base.
I’ve added some elements but it’s a great sketch if you’re just starting out and have a limited amount of crafting stash.

Training day – swaps

Hi all

I had the privilege of spending a lovely day crafting with my my wider Stampin’ Up! team this weekend. Organised by my fab upline, Fiona and another very talented demo who runs her own successful team, Pip.

It’s customary for demo’s to  exchange ‘swaps’ and I received some very beautiful projects which will serve as inspiration to me and my customers.

This was my swap.

I love the bright colours of the All Abloom dsp stack and I popped chocolates inside too!

This design was shown to demo’s in America at their catalogue launch and I used the dimensions provided by BJ’s Stampin’ Spot here.

All Abloom dsp
Banners framelits
Large oval punch
