About the Artist

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

Tsunami Rose Designs

Again I have been having so much fun creating with 'Witches Brew' this is a must have Printable Collection.  To purchase this for yourself head over to Tsunami Rose's Etsy Store.

For this project, my third DT project for Tsunami Rose Designs,  I started with a wooden bird house base, which was very kindly RAK'd to me from my good friend Sandie (thank you hunnie).  I covered the entire front in paper from the Printable 'Witches Brew' collection and edged it in Black Soot Distress Ink.  I highlighted the spiders web using black stickles and added a plastic spider from my stash for extra effect.  I cut out 'A Haunting we Will Go' and sealled it with mod podge and attached it to the top.  I created a little flower box using mountboard and surrounded it using a Martha Stewart fence punch with black cardstock and rubbed over with Inca Gold.  I added some leaves using the Cheery Lynn leaves die and greed cardstock.  I added a selection of flowers from my stash and attached a skeleton charm to the banner using a jump ring.  The wooden pumpkins are from Kerry at WhichCraft do you do and were fabulous to add to this project I coloured them using Copics and sealled them with Glossy Accents.



Thank you so much for coming over to my blog, I hope you like my creation and look forward to creating more with the gorgeous designs from Tsunami Rose.

Great Big Huge Hugs

I can't wait to see all your wonderful creations, go let your imaginations and creativity go wild and share them over on CraftyHands Challenge Blog for your chance to win this spectacular prize.

This is my DT project for the launch of what promises to be a fabulous Challenge Blog


I created this 5.5" x 5.5" card using one for my Gorjuss Girl stamps from the fabulous collection available from Docrafts.  I just love these stamps.  I coloured it using Copic markers and added some stickles on her petti coat and top of her dress.  I used 2 Martha Stewart border punches on pink and purple cardstock and layered them together.  I cut a Fanciful Flourish from Cheery Lynn die from the same pink cardstock and deepened the colour using Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet distress ink.  I used a mixture of Wild Orchid Craft flowers to create my cluster in the top left hand corner and made some curly ques from a few cherry blossom stems.  I gessoed a bronze butterfly and added some flat backed gems for a little sparkle, coupled with the use of diamond stickles spread over the tips of the flowers.  I added some faux stitches with a white gel pen in top right hand corner.  The sentiment is from the same Gorjuss stamp set '.....on top of the world'.

I hope you like my card, I had fun creating it and look forward to many more creations for

I have been having so much fun creating with 'Witches Brew' this is a must have Printable Collection.  To purchase this for yourself head over to Tsunami Rose's Etsy Store.

For this project, my second DT project for Tsunami Rose Designs,  I started with a Jumbo Scalloped tag base.  I choose the Journal Style paper for the base and edged it in DI Black Soot to really make the paper pop.  I fussy cut the Arsenic Poison label and the Witches Brew tag.  The tag I adhered with some double sided tape and then distressed and rippled the poison label and again edged in Black Soot to give it a really dark and tattered look.  I die cut some Cheery Lynn Fancyful Florish Dies in black cardstock and added them around the tag behind the Witches Brew tag and tucked in behind the flower cluster I created in the bottom right corner.  I had no black flowers but used some Graphite Tattered Angel spray to achieve the dark shimmery rose buds tucked in the cluster with rust and orange tone buds.  This backed with some leaves encrusted with some bling and pearls to make them pop.  The wooden bottles are from Kerry at WhichCraft do you do and were fabulous to add to this project as I cut bottle labels from the papers and inked them to make them look like potions and poisons.  I also had some Spider Web in my stash and added it to the top left and added a spider to finish the effect.  I also had to use the skull from the skeleton from the collection as it was just screaming at me to be used.  So I used my 1" circle punch and cut the skull out and added it onto a bottle cap and sealed it with glossy accents.  The bottom of the tag I added 2 different laces from my stash and a little Black Chinese Braid.  Finally I sprayed some cream seambinding with the same Tattered Angel spray to achieve the grey shimmery binding on the top.

I hope you like my creation, please feel free to head over to my YT channel to see it in more detail.







Thank you so much for stopping past, your comments and encouragement I appreciate immensely.

I am delighted and honored to let you all know that I am a DT member for Tusnami Rose.

I have created my first DT project using the fabulous 'Witches Brew' 5.7 printable journal kit.  I love the designs and colours of this collection and they have a brilliant Halloween feel to them.

For this card I used a 5.5" x 5.5" corrugated kraft card blank.  I matted and layered some black cardstock with the spider web paper from the collection.  I fussy cut the 'Happy Halloween', 'Trick-or-Treat' and the tag with the witch and pumpkin on it and popped them up using foam squares.  I added Chinese braid and some black lace trim from my stash along the top edge.  I also used a few small 10mm flowers from my stash.  To make the tag with the witch on it pop a little more I spun some black and white twine around it and added a black button from my stash.  I finished off then with some bright orange stickles in the button centers and also edged up the flowers too.

Rhedd and Rosies Anything Goes Challenge Blog - Challenge #17 - Shades of Autumn

Well hello everyone.

Firstly I must thank you all for the wonderful entries from you all on our 16th Challenge over at Rhedd and Rosies.  Boy you didn't make my decision easy but a decision needed to be made and I made it.  So incase you haven't already been click here to go over and find out who the winner is.

This fortnights challenge is 'Shades of Autumn'  For this challenge again I decided to stay away from cards or tags and have had these very kindly gifted Art Parts spools in my stash for a while and I decided it was time to alter one :-)



I really enjoyed creating this piece and am very pleased with the colours and overall effect.  I love the fact that I have managed to add a flickering candle which looks fab on my mantle piece flickering away in the evenings.

Here is my video from my YouTube Channel showing it in more detail.  I hope you enjoy watching


This fortnight I am sponsoring the prize and I hope you like it and will add your entry at Rhedd and Rosies Challenge Blog for your chance to win.




Thank you again for stopping past my blog, I hope you like my DT piece and thank you also for all your wonderful comments, I really appreciate them.
