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.

Use a Bow at Ooh La La Creations

Hi There, well what great male themed card we had for the last challenge. You can check out if you have won at Ooh La La Creations Challenge Blog.

This time our theme is use a bow - so get out your ribbon, lace, string and twine and  see what you can come up with.

I made the following card using a digi stamp from digi stamps 4 joy and backing papers from the Shawn Jenkins collection CD

I needed a card quickly for my stepdaughter and her family who were moving into a new house. Made with just 1 days notice - her dad forgot to tell me she was moving.

It really was a quick and easy card and she loved it.


  1. Really pretty, yo say quick and easy but very eye catching.
