How to Make 2 Different Cards from1 Layout

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Sometimes we see a card that we just love, but we may not have those supplies or it may not be for the occasion we need at that time. In today’s video I have created a card layout using it to create a valentine card for one and a birthday card for the second. I have made sure all the measurements are the same and the same tone-on-tone technique used on both.

Introducing Rococo Rose with Woven Heirlooms

My apologies for being a day late with my post – it has been a busy week as I had my catalog launch on Thursday with over 20 of my wonderful and supportive customers who came to look at new products, do some make and takes and collect their own precious copy of the new catalog!

Our next new color for 2019 – 2021 is Rococo Rose ~ a gentle pink my sweet ol’ Mum would have called Ashes of Roses.  I have paired it with one of the new stamp sets – Woven Heirlooms, one of the first stamp sets on my list when I opened the new catalog! a new coordinating  ribbon and the Bird Ballad Trinkets.

This is the second of the new In-Colors and they are all so very pretty – you can get your hands on a set if you would like to join in my ink and color share, where you can build up your collection over the next few months without breaking the bank – click here for more info

Everything Eleanor Birthday ~ video tutorial

It was my dear Mum’s birthday at the beginning of August, her favorite colors have always been Navy Blue and Cream, so this was the starting point for the card I made for her.  As she lives in the UK I needed to ensure that the card would be light enough to mail, without to much bulk from pearls or rhinestones.  Those of you who know me also know I love bling on my my cards, this is where glimmer paper comes in very handy!!!


Early bird special registration finishes on Sept 3rd!
