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.

Red and Green

Red and Green is the theme for Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas challenge this week and I have come up with the following using a recycled image and sentiment, recycled fruit net bag, some washi tape, a paper flower, a couple of die cut holly sprigs and a gem.

I am entering this into the following challenges,

  1. Love the music tape and what a wonderful way to use that netting (I've sometimes tried to use stuff like that, but it never looks as good as yours does) - thanks for a lovely entry for both of my CHNC challenges - hope to see you again soon. x

  2. The traditional Christmas colours never fail to please Ali and the music background works perfectly.
