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.

Food and Drink at Ooh La La Creations

Hello everyone, we had some wonderful entries for our things with wings challenge last time and you can see the winners at Ooh La La Creations Challenge blog.

This time our theme is Food and/or Drink and I have created this card using the Autumn window image from the new Shawn Jenkins CD. 

I love this image and can almost smell the apple pie as it cools on the window sill. I used one of the toppers and then added mats and layers of the patterned papers from the folder. I added a rosette folded from green card and then finished off with two tiny apples made using Martha Stewart Paper clay, the mould I used is actually to make cherries but made in green clay they work equally well for tiny apples. The final touch was three golden pearls added using cosmic shimmer pearl PVA glue.
