Flying in Formation

It’s Paul’s Dad’s birthday on 3rd May, and as he loves his wartime/antique aircraft, I decided on these Anita’s toppers.

On their own they looked a little plain, and so, using the idea from the centre stepper cards that I have been making, I created a template for a side stepper that would accommodate the size of the toppers that I had.


Once this was done, I took some navy blue matting and layering card from by stock and used 3 pieces to add some colour contrast to the white card blank that I had used.

I stacked the images on each layer, getting smaller towards the front.  Hopefully creating a flying formation effect.

The sentiment went side on for a change.

I was quite pleased with the effect, and hope he will like it.

Happy Birthday Mel.

Anniversary Wishes


Another stepper card, this time for anniversary celebrations


In Sympathy


I always find making sympathy cards very difficult, but have to say the images on this beautiful disc are making it very easy!

Once more, another card for the School Fayre


Pink & Blue Hydrangea


These are more lovely images from the Garden Steps CD-Rom, and I think will sell really well at the fayre




My Black and Gold CD-Rom came into it’s own for this card.

I used a tall white card blank.

Once I had designed the image on screen, I printed it off and matted it onto silver card, before mounting it onto 3d foam pads and then onto the card blank.

A Flower For You


Another little 5x5 card.  Simple but effective with the extra floral decoupaged over the original.

Pretty in Pink


A few little gems added to the image on this simple card

Bouquet of Roses

Another hedgy hedgehog, this time with a bouquet of roses.


Pretty Little Hedgehog

Another from my CD-Rom, this time using a little hedgehog as my central image/decoupage.


I used 5x5 do-crafts recycled card blanks as the base for each of these square cards.

Mint Sauce!

I’m trying to get my stock together, as Tracey has asked if I would like to share a stall with her in June at a local school fete.


This little baa lamb was on my CD-Rom.  I put her together in the same way as I did the little piggy card.

She turned out quite cute, so I made a couple.  What do you think?
