Just for you

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAJust for you – An A5 card using papers from the Craftwork Cards “Al Fresco” pad. It is such pretty, bright pad – so cheerful. I have used parts of several papers to mat and layer on this card to continues the cycling theme that has been a major part of our summer this year. The “Tour De France” starting in Yorkshire this year has given everyone a great sense of community here, along with a renewed interest in cycling. We have had a wonderful summer this year, and while it is still here, I’m grabbing it with both hands x

Seagull on Guard

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAn A5 card using the Craftwork Cards “Harbour Boulevard” paper pad. I have used a piece from one of the sheets to create a topper which I have edged with Chipped Saphire Distress ink and navy card. I have used glossy accents on the seagull and the rope around the anchor to make them stand out on the topper. The backgrounds are from 2 other sheets from the pad which I have layered and edged with navy card and Chipped saphire distress ink. I used some dark brown hessian/jute ribbon behind the topper for contrast, but also because I think it goes so well with this lovely seaside pad. Two buttons tied with twine to embellish and there you have it. I think this pad is gorgeous – so clean and crisp, wonderful for mens cards, and brings back memories from my childhood growing up in a seaside town. Hope you like this pad as much as I do x

Time for Tea

A 6 x 6 card made at a recent Make and Take at a Craftwork Cards event in Leeds.

I love the colours in this collection – they all co-ordinate beautifully and are so refreshing in this heat. I love making these flowers – so simple, but so effective. Hope you like it x

Red, White and Blue

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe card I made for my Daughter-in-laws Birthday this year. It is an 8 x 8 card made using the “Kitsch” Collection. I think the blue, white and red half of this collection is so bright, clean and contemporary, and I love the range of cards etc that can be made with it. Some of the elements on the card were already die-cut, some I cut free hand and some I cut out using my Grand Calibur machine. I was very happy with the card and so was my Daughter-in-law, and I hope you like it too x

Flying High

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAn A5 card made using Craftwork Cards “Flying High” kit. The topper is actually cut from a sheet of the 8 inch paper pad and covered in micro beads to give it a different look. I often like to use Micro beads on toppers as I really like the effect it gives. I’ve used a little distress ink – Barn Door – around the edges of the banners. I love the colours in this collection and think the combination of the red and Jade green, give a very striking card with a strong, modern inpact. I also think the collection and this card would work well for both male and female x
