About Me

Liverpool, Liverpool, United Kingdom
I have been crafting since May 2008, when in desperation to find an unusual birthday card for my Mum, I gave up looking in the shops and decided to have a go at making my own. I soon realised that crafting is addictive and I haven't brought a card since. In 2011 I completed my certificate in papercrafting as a result of the work I did as part of the course I started entering challenges on line and in magazines. I applied for design teams and also started making samples for Ooh La La Creations for their shows on Create and Craft. I have now completed my Diploma in professional crafting and most recently been runner up in the Papercrafter of the Year 2013 a competition run by Papercraft essentials magazine, I don't have a particular style I like to use elements from lots of styles and techniques, although I do love all things vintage. In 2014 I started to move more towards scrapbooking to take care of the huge family archive of photographs that were stored in my attic. I have continued cardmaking and Scrapbooking through 2015 and 2016 but have also become interested in off the page projects. I hope to be able focus on these in the future.

Chrstmas Cas

I used a Memory Box die to cut the Poinsettia shape from green and red felt, I then used the matching memory box stamp and momento ink to add the detail to the flower I also stamped a third image to get the centre of the flower onto a scrap of red felt and then cut it out before layering the leaves and petals up. The finishing touch was to add small gold beads for the flower centre. I added a simple sentiment and three pearls using pearl paint.

I am entering this card into the following challenges
