You can now find all of my class work on my new Blog

Sunday, 24 July 2016


A few weeks ago my friend Mags sent me an envelope with lots of scrummy goodies in it. It was a bit out of my comfort zone because it was mainly pink but lovely never the less.

I have limited time at the moment but managed to make these two large tags.
 I just love the mdf feathers on this one. They are from Things To Alter and come in loads of different sizes.
I made a shaker in the middle of this one, filled with coarse silver glitter but in my haste to finish I forgot to put the little cat in the shaker. It was good prcatise though as I am going to make a shaker christmas card this year.

Thanks Mags for the goodies. I promise that I will make more as soon as I can. xx

Birthday Dinos New Release

Recently I was given an amazing opportunity to be one of the first people to play with a brand new range of papers by Sticker Kitten (Sarah Douglas) and her husband James.
They are super cute and so easy to use.
I wanted to make three cards using just the paper pack and this is what I came up with. This one is a bit similar to my friend Mags card but great minds obviously think alike.
Just loved using these great designs.

Still got loads left to use so watch this space and if you want to get your hands on this lovely set then follow the link HERE

Can't wait to see what fantastic ranges this clever couple have up their sleeves. Xx

Finnabair class

Ever since I met Finnabair at a trade show I have really wanted to take one of her classes. I have waited patiently and at last I managed to get a place at Art From The Heart. It was a long old journey for a half day work shop and was it worth it? Oh yes with bells on. That lady has serious talent and I can't believe how much I learnt in a small space of time.

 This is the finished result and in only 4 hours too. I think that when I make the next one I will take a bit more time and change a few things but overall I am really chuffed at the result.
Here is a bit more of the detail.

It was an amazing process from start to finish and Finnabair was patient, thorough and explained how everything worked as we went along. If you get a chance make sure you take one of her workshops. I am certainly waiting for the next one. xx
