About the Artist

My photo
I just love crafting, the messier the better. Have been crafting all my days but in the last 16 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

Crafting stash/supplies Swaps

I have been asking around and searching the Web looking to see if anyone is running swaps of craft stashes/supplies.

All us crafters know that we have things in our stash that we haven't used all of and what would be better than to pull together a box/jiffy of about approx £10-15 and find a fellow crafter somewhere to swap goodies with! I know I would love the suspense of tearing open a swap box/bag to find out what goodies are hidden within. Could even give swaps a theme?

Let me know what you think in comments below or if you know of something like this that is up and running I could join in with I would love to hear from you!

Thanks and bye for now

House Warming Gift


Thought I'd share with you all my latest project I have just finished.

My Brother and Sister-in-Law are moving into their new home soon and I have spent some time making a personalised gift for them.

I have made this canvas using a lot of @Tim-Holtz products (Grundboard, Distress Inks, Perfect Pearls) I made a tag which says 'Home is where the Heart is' and I have included underneath this a photo taken at my Brother's and Sister-in-Laws wedding of the 2 of them making their vows.  The tattered roses were distressed with ink and hand made from newspaper print.  I used up a few of my embellishments that I had in my stash and here you go the finished result :-)

Be back soon with some more of my work

Dawn Bibby Flower Patch Collection

These are all the cards that I have made so far using @dawnbibby new collection. Super super kit can hardly put it down.

Fab the fact that not only are there pre coloured card but also white ones that you can colour tint using @tim_holtz distressing inks. To add even more alternatives colour tinting the pre coloured card then adds a whole new dimension to your cards and the finished effects.

Thanks for taking a look. Must head to bed now but hopefully bring you all some more of my finished cards and projects soon 😃😃😃

Hello - First Blog

I love crafting cardmaking and papercrafts. Great fan of and  ! Just wish I could give up work and craft all day :-)

Enjoy looking at and sharing tips and techniques with fellow crafters through Facebook, Twitter and YouTube (these videos are the best well done to all of you who upload, keep them coming xx).

New to this blogging so I am going to try and see how I get on.  Will upload photos of things I have made once I work out how too!  Might even go as far as a video if I am brave enough.

Be back soon hopefully :-)
