About Me

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.

Santa's Little Helpers

Well actually not so little, I guess that the biggest help that Santa gets during the festive season is from his team of reindeer because he'd never manage to get to everyne on foot. So when sorting through my recycling bag I came across these two cards they just cried out to be recycled into a pair of matching cards.

I added some glitter to the hats and coats and tied gingham bows round the gold backing card to balance the designs.

As Crafty Hazelnut is featuring Santa and/or his helpers this week I decided to enter them into her challenge and also into her challenge for March where anything goes as long as it's Christmas.
