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.

Happy Birthday at Ooh La La creations

Hi everyone and thanks to all of you who entered the last challenge of 'Here Comes Summer' there were some lovely entries and it was really difficult to pick the top three to see if you were chosen head over to the Ooh La La Creations Challenge blog.
This fortnight the challenge is
 'Happy Birthday'

I used the 'Say it with Words CD' to order your copy click on the image below


I kept the card fairly simple and used one of the backing papers from the CD mounted on Kraft card for the background I added a strip of a contrasting backing paper and a panel of sequin mesh. The image was also mounted on Kraft card and I added the sentiment cut using the Brother Scan 'n' cut.
