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.

Keeping it Clean and Simple at Ooh La La Creations.

Hello all, once again we had some wonderful creations for our Love is in the Air Challenge to see if you are one of our top three pop over to the  Ooh La La Creations Challenge Blog.

Our theme for the next fortnight is 'Clean and Simple'

I used the folder 'Sorcha' from the Fairies & Blooms CD you can purchase a copy from Ooh La La Creations by clicking on the image below

Here's my card

I loved the black with the peach and orange. The panel on the left is one of the bookmarks from the CD and all I added was black card to matt and layer.

I also used the insert from the folder to finish off the inside of the card.
