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.

On The Move - OLL DT

Well it's Monday and that means it's a new challenge at Ooh La La Creations. Thank you to everyone who entered the last challenge and congratulations to the winners.

This week the subject is on the move and used images from the Watercolour Memories CD.

I have kept the design really simple this time (not easy for a girl who loves her diecuts and embellies) I printed the backing paper and the topper and mounted them onto dark blue card. I tied a bow in the silver metallic ribbon and wrapped this around the backing paper panel and then stuck the panel to a 6x6 card blank. I printed the sentiment from the computer and mounted this onto red and blue card before sticking to the ribbon . The topper was then added at an angle. The finishing touch was the bright red 'pearls' at the top right, well come on you didn't expect me to complete a card with no embellishments at all did you?


  1. Oh my word Ali this is totally ACE, the main image and matching papers as well as the design look fantastic.
