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.

Something a Little Different

This week the challenge at Through the Purple Haze Challenges was to create a card using a different fold one that you haven't used before.

I was in the process of designing a card for a friends 30th Birthday she is heavily influenced by the 60's and I had some marvellous papers courtesy of My Craft Studio's Carousel of classics CD. In fact far too many to use on a single or even triple fold card. Then the idea came to me to use them to make a never ending card and I could also enter the challenge as I have never made one before.

The problem is actually photographing a never ending card to it's best advantage so here it is you just have to imagine opening and flipping it!

I am entering this card into the following challenges 


  1. Oh I do love those papers, it's the perfect way to show them off. I've never tried a never ending card, well done , it's turned out great. It's great to see you again at
