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.

Spring is in the Air over at Ooh La La Creations

Hello everyone firstly a huge thank you from me to all those who have shown their support for my 10,0000 steps a day challenge.

I now know several distances near to where I live in steps. It isn't easy but I am enjoying it, it gets difficult if it is hammering with rain but in the beautiful spring like weather we had yesterday it is a real pleasure to get out and about.

Now onto the business of Ooh La La - we had some great entries for the add a sentiment challenge and to find out if you are a winner then pop over to the Ooh La La Creations Challenge blog.

Now this fortnight our theme is 'Spring is in the Air' and it is appropriate that the weather here seems to have brightened up this last week.

I used the Shawn Jenkins collection CD for my card, click on the image to go to the website to purchase your copy.

I love the combination of green and pink for spring so this card came together really easily. Just using the papers from the same folder as the topper.

I used the same papers inside and added a greeting.

Then finished the back of the card with another topper from the same folder .
