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.

White Christmas

White Christmas is supposedly the most popular Christmas song ever and it certainly lends itself to being used as inspiration for a card design.

Again I kept the background plain and used matt silver card to layer the photograph and the sentiment onto. This time I added a die cit snowflake and the larger snowflake above the sentiment is actually a sticky snowflake designed for sticking on your windows at Christmas. I stuck it onto acetate instead and cut round it then added a silver centre to hide the glue used to stick it to the card.

I am entering this card into the following Challenges.
