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.

More than one fold at Ooh La La Creations

Hello everyone and firstly thank you for all the entries into our Witching hour Challenge. I had a really difficult time picking the top three but to see if you are included please check out the results on the Ooh La La Creations Challenge blog .

Whilst you're there check out the fabulous projects from the DT for the new challenge of

'More Than One Fold'

This time I have chosen to work with the gorgeous Nursery Times CD which can be purchased from the Ooh La La Creations shop

I learnt to make these boxes at this years Summer crafting and they are so easy yet have a real wow factor when complete, with beauty of folding flat for posting.

Just use the template below printed to fit a piece of A4 card Cut on the solid lines and score on the dotted lines .

Choose your images and stick them on the surfaces of the main box making sure that they wiyll be the correct way up when the box opens. 

Use the two strips inside the box to create platforms for further images or embellishments. Fold the strips into a 'z' shape to ensure that the card will still fold flat for posting.


  1. This is a fabulous box card Alli, I love all of the Nursery Times images you have used.

  2. WOW, Allison, what an amazing box card, still to try this type of card, hugs xxx

  3. You're right those boxes are so easy to make and it's great that they fold flat too. I've made them with my craft group and they love them too. Love the way you've used the CD images to creat this. Wynn
