About Me

My Photo
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. I want to start doing more scrapbooking in 2014 - I have a huge amount of family photos that need to be made up into layouts.

Dilly Beans Digi Stamps

with a super prize for the winner.

The Design Team were lucky enough to have some fantastic images from Dilly Beans to play with and here is my card:


I fell in love with this image the first time I saw it and, I used Sakura Glaze pens to colour it which has resulted in an enamel texture to the finished piece. As much as I went for bright colours it would also work really well with Black and White to give a 'Zentangle' type feel to the card.  The papers were freebies from a magazine and were designed by Jennifer Ellory, and finally the buttons were just from my stash.
