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.

Love is in the Air at Ooh La La Creations

Hello everyone. Thank you to all those who entered the Once Upon A Time challenge I set last time to see if you are in the winners list check out the Ooh La La Creations Challenge Blog.

The theme for the next fortnight is 'Love'

I have used Papers and artwork from the 'Say it with Words' CD

I intend using this as hubby's Valentine Card so I used a 'Beatles' Quote in the wording.

Inside I kept the design simple.
