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.

Sun Sea and Sand at Ooh La La Creations

Hello everyone.

I have been away for a few weeks whilst getting my 90 year old Dad settled into a lovely place nearer to myself and hubby. So haven't been able to do any crafting. He's now settled and loving it and I am back to crafting.

Thank you to everyone who entered our last challenge, you can find out if you were in teh top three by going to the Ooh La La Creations Challenge Blog.

Our theme for the next fortnight is Sun, Sea and Sand I came up with this card using the Faithful Friends CD click on the image below to purchase your copy.

I simply took images and papers from  'The Beach Dog' folder on the CD and matted them onto black card, before arranging them on the card. I finished off with the two die cut 'sea weed' flourishes and some shells from my local beach.
