Thankful For You

Good Evening Everyone

Today I have made a card than is a little different to the recent Christmas cards, this one is more of a thank you for someone special.It s always nice to make sure people feel appreciated and this card will do just that. It has a gorgeous deep red background with a leaf embossed background which gives the card texture. There is a Tonic gilded flake frame around an image of the sun shining through the almost bare trees. Nothing too fancy, which works really well in this card. The text reads 'thankful for you', so make sure you tell someone you're thankful for them and order a card!

Christmas Time

Good Evening Everyone

Another Christmas card for my collection. This one has a more neutral colour theme than the ones I have been posting lately and it has the most gorgeous reindeer paper for the background. You can see how the stars shimmer and shine in the light. In the centre of the card is a wooden sleigh and skies, perfect for sledging in the snowy season. As Christmas will be here before you know it, make sure you get ordering your cards while you still can! If you like any of the designs I have already made, or have some ideas for your own, make sure you contact me!

Season Sparkle

Hello Everybody

Here is another Christmas card, I just can't get enough of them. Lots of light and bright colours in this one and a gorgeous mistletoe pattern paper for the outer boarder. I love the green glitter, such a lovely colour! Which also matches the cute little green Christmas tree in the centre of the card. There are gems on and around the tree to give it some festive sparkle. The text on the card reads 'may your season sparkle'

Christmas Mittens

Evening All

Here is another Christmas card as we all need to star getting ready for the festive season! It will be here before you know it. This card is beautiful, there is a subtle white printed snowflake on the background which just stands out when you look closely. The boarder around this is made use of a sparkly red, snowflake printed paper. In the corner are the adorable mittens in that same gorgeous burgundy colour as yesterday’s card. The detail on the mittens is a lovely shimmering gold to add some sparkle to the card and the bow above them is white with a gold trim. All the colours match so well and really bring the card together. Get your Christmas cards before it’s too late!

Christmas Spirit

Good Evening Everyone

How beautiful is this Christmas card? I just love the deep burgundy colour, it works so well that no other colour is needed in this card. Around the square in the centre of the card is a lovely gold sparkle boarder, to add a bit of shimmer and shine to this festive card. The text reads 'a little Christmas spirit brightens the world' and it is finished with a bow. Make sure you order your Christmas cards now and give someone a unique handmade card as special as this one.

Tis The Season

Good Evening Everyone

It's nearly the Christmas season so here is another lovely Christmas card I made recently. Instead of your normal rectangle shaped card, I made this one a little different. It's shape is very unique and it has a Z fold style rather than opening out like a standard card. It's always nice to do something a little different. It has the cutest snowman on the front with a tree and a present on the fold behind. It definitely tis' the season!

Merry Christmas

Hello!

Christmas is closer than you think so lets get into that festival spirit with another gorgeous Christmas card. I used many different patterned papers but all of them have a festive theme also they all feature the colours red and green. The first layer of paper has a simple Christmas tree pattern where as the second layer has a lot more going on with different Christmas items such as; baubles, stockings, stars. I also used the cutest little eft stamp in this card, dressed in red with a Santa hat. It may still seem a little early to be getting ready for Christmas but it will be here before you know it, so get your Christmas cards ready while you can!

Christmas Baubles

Hello Everyone 

I’m am loving these vinyl gifts and making them is so much fun. These are some I made recently as a present, they both have names printed on them along with the cutest little paw print. One was printed in white and the other in brown, both were then packaged up in beautiful boxes and finished with a bow. They make perfect gifts for family and friends.

All Star Champ

Good Evening Everyone 

Here is my latest handmade card which I loved making! I love the the dye effect background and the lovely shades of blue. Framed by a square in the centre of the card is a blue t-shirt, which matches the background of the card. Across the t-shirt is the text ‘all star champ’ it a deep navy blue. Around the whole card there are little deep blue gems to add some texture and detail. It’s a lovely card that could be given for a birthday or many other occasions. If you would love a card like this, or have some ideas of your own, make sure you contact me!

Baby's First Christmas

Hello!

I have been getting creative and using vinyl more often. I love using it to make beautiful personalised gifts, such as this ‘baby’s 1st Christmas’ bauble. Used a lovely baby blue for the vinyl lettering and a deep blue ribbon on the top. I can crest these with any text and colour, and they can be filled with a range of items inside! Perfect for your Christmas tree. Get in contact with me if you have any questions or requests!

Tuxedo Baby Grow

Good Evening Everyone

Had a little break from posting recently so I have plenty to show you all! This is the cutest little baby card with a twist. I used a beautiful baby blue colour for the whole card and the only image on here is the white tuxedo style baby grow. Very simple but very effective. The fold of the card is down the middle which leaves part of the baby grow to over lap, bit of a different style to a standard fold card. I think the way the card folds makes it more unique and creative, especially with such a plain front image.

A Little Gift

Good Evening Everyone


It has been such a busy weekend making many more cards and crafts for you to view. This is something a little different to the cards I usually make, it is a cute little candle gift box. The box it's self is a beautiful purple and on the lid I have used this magical unicorn paper. Due to this size of this box it is perfect for holding 4 little candle tealights, I have placed some which are a beautiful purple to match the box. It is a nice little gift, beautifully wrapped which makes it all the more special.

21

Good Evening! 

I love making birthday cards but today I made an age birthday card! The big 21! This card is amazing and full of layers to give it that 3D effect. You can see the card is stacked together to give a frame effect with different layers, then attached to each layer is a different decoration. I love the plain white background with the bright shimmering gold decorations, it’s really makes them stand out from the simple backdrop. 21 is a big birthday and this is a bag card to go alone with it, it doesn’t disappoint. If you have any special birthdays coming up soon and need a card as amazing as this one then make sure you contact me!

Just For You

Good Evening All

Today I have made a beautiful card which is perfect to give to someone special. Starting with the wood effect background, which looks like the rings within trees. The next layer has 3 wood effect effect panels which lay on the background of the card. Wood, trees and nature are a strong theme in this card. Finally in a circle in the centre there is a beautiful tree and blue flower, with the text 'just for you'. I really love this card and I know who ever receives it will love it also. If you would like a card like this for someone you know please make sure you contact me!

Hello

Good Evening All,

Isn’t this the sweetest little card? Perfect for almost any occasion. I love the different textures and patterns on the vases and how the colour of the flowers match with the vases. There are a few different boarders around this card also, giving it a frame effect. I used a lot of deep red colours in this card, with hints of gold, pink and green. I loved making this one!
