A New Release for the New year

At the beginning of this year I was approached by the Art and Craft Academy to make some programmes for them. Yesterday I got a massive surprise when I received copies of the first 4 DVD’s going on sale soon.

The DVD’s cover Making Wedding Invitations (double DVD), Card Making (Double DVD) with karen as Creative Editor, Stamping and Punching (Single DVD), and An Introduction to Scrapbooking (Single DVD) with Karen as Creative Editor.  There will also be a few more titles added this year so keep checking back for more details.
At present you will be able to buy them on Amazon.
A great start to 2013

Two Books to share

I am still sorting boxes and have just come across two of the Snow Books made a few years back.
I love the way they still sparkle after all this time and surprisingly they still look like new.
Here is the first one using the Ice Skates
The front cover was made using a shadow frame and as you can see, I used loads of Glamour Dust to make it “BLING”
The boots were even laced with silver thread.
And the snow flakes and lettering were embossed to make them stand out.
I’ll share another one tomorrow. Hugs xxx

Merry Christmas

It’s been a roller coaster of a year but at last Christmas is here and a New Year is in sight.

I would like to wish my family and friends a very Merry Christmas and extend a big thank you to everyone for their continued support and help during 2012

Here’s hoping you get everything you want this Christmas.

Another one to share

Photos are coming thick and fast now of the finished projects from Saturday.
This beauty was made by Michelle. She added a great tree die-cut and included a pink kite which really worked.
and this one from Maria who added photos to some of the circles.
Thanks for sharing girls xx.

CROP tickets now available

The first Crop of 2013 is on 2nd March from 10am to 4pm at Parkwood Community Centre.
A Crop is a craft day where you come along with your craft bits and have a whole day with like minded people. You can bring along anything, knitting, crochet, patchwork, Scrapbooking, Card Making, the list is endless and I provide all the tea, coffee and cakes. You just need a packed lunch although at the last crop loads of ladies went to the fish and chip shop and brought them back.
Here is a picture showing some of the ladies crafting at the last Crop.
It is a great day out and a fantastic way to make new friends, share ideas and have some “ME TIME” with like minded people.
If you have any questions you can e-mail me at but in the meantime you can click HERE to book your Crop ticket.
Hope to see you soon. xx


Thank you to everyone who ordered the Creativity 101 Kit. I have now SOLD OUT.

Here is another example of the finished project this time by Geraldine Wylie. Geraldine has added a few additions such as the bike to make the project her own.


Lovely work Geraldine xx
