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.

Magnificent Men at Ooh La La Creations

Hello, once again we had some gorgeous entries for our Pearls and Swirls challenge last time and you can see the winners at Ooh La La Creations Challenge Blog, Whilst there check out the DT cards for this weeks Challenge set by Lisbeth - Magnificent Men.

I chose this wonderful image from the Boys to men CD. I also used backing papers from the same CD and I kept the design simple, just using this wonderful pyrimage image to do the talking. I used some kraft paper for matting and layering and used a kraft blank to keep the manly feel to the card.

Inside I just cropped the main image to a square and printed it off at 50% opacity on MCS to make the insert.

I am entering this card into the following challenges.
