A Little Art Deco

I bought this little lady at the craft show when I went with the girls in January.


She turned out really well, and with the extra touch of glitter that I added to her, is really very elegant.

Diamond Wedding Anniversary

I was asked if I could make something for a Diamond Wedding Anniversary, and I had a few ideas, one being a pop up diamond card, but in the end, the most simple was the most effective.

I used a tall card blank, trimmed one side off, and using my Tonic Solutions edge trimmer cut hearts down the rear of the card.

I then covered the rear of the pattern with double sided tape, and rubbed ultra fine glitter into the pattern that was left showing on the front of the card.

The rear of the card was then covered in another sheet of paper to ‘tidy’ up the sight of the tape that was visible.


I printed a sentiment onto photo quality card, and trimmed it, placing it on the narrow frontage of the card using 3d foam for extra dimension.

I finished it with some sticky gem stones.

A very pleasing effect I think.

Matting and Layering

Using one of my new acrylic stamps, my cuttlebug and my nestie, along with some ribbon, brads and a sentiment tag I pulled this together as a first attempt, and was really please with the result.


What do you think?

A Little Doolicraft

Whilst visiting Trago a little while ago, I bought a card making set from Doolicraft.  It contained various decoupage sheets, 8 card blank, envelopes and miscellaneous cards and papers.  All in all a really good bargain.

I opened the box on about 4 different occasions before I got the inspiration to do anything with them, and then suddenly, I got it together and came up with these

There are some Get Well,

 P7250015   P7250007






and moving house.


Then there are some generic that can have labels attached as I am asked for them.


All in all, not a bad set to buy, and so far everyone seems to love the cute look.

I don’t really think they are my style, and probably won’t make them again, but I think that they were a good buy at the time.
