About the Artist

My photo
I just love crafting, the messier the better. Have been crafting all my days but in the last 10 years have been doing more and more. My obsession began with making cards and from there I have tried many different forms of crafting. Great fan of Tim_Holtz love all his products would love to own them all one day. Graphic 45 is another must have for me and again would love to have it all. And then there is Prima well what can a girl say, just simply stunningly beautiful. Really enjoying the vintage, shabby chic and steampunk styles which are very much in vogue at the minute. Love Lace and Pearl trim, you might be seeing a fair bit of it all on here. xx Please keep calling past and enjoy my crafting journey with me. Great Big Huge Hugs Becca xxx

Altered Heart Box

High everyone.  I have been busy over the weekend doing all sorts of craft things that I needed to get caught up with.  I have bought myself some Marianne Creatable die cuts and they are so great and simple to use.  Find it very relaxing sitting making them up.  I have also been making lots of rolled roses flowers for a few projects that I have on the back burner.

After watching quite a few videos on YouTube recently I fancied trying my had at some altered projects and have completed my first - My Altered Heart Box for my Mum's 60th Birthday.  I hope she likes it!  the box itself only cost me 10p from one of my charity shop hauls and well I think it looks quite sweet, wonder if she will recognise it, she was with me when I bought it heehee :-)  I have been searching through charity shops to see what little bits and bobs I can pick up to alter.  Even have a wish list given to my husband in case he happens to see things that I want/need :-).

This project was the first one I actually did on camera and upload onto YouTube (links below) please take a look and let me know what you think (ver nerve racking!!!).  Even subscribe and keep an eye out for future uploads.

Hope you have a great day, thanks for stopping by, be back soon

Handmade Notebook

Hi all, I have just finished this wee handmade Notebook for my Nana's 82nd birthday tomorrow!

I stitched pages in using Coptic stitching and made a book board using recycled card from some furniture packaging we had after putting together furniture in our kids bedrooms.

I covered the board in some lovely scrapbook paper from my stash and then added some lace gathered and sewn to look like a flower topped with a button and then added some roses, pearls and a ribbon bow. I also glued in some organza ribbon in the inside to tie it closed.

Here's hoping she likes it :-)
