  1. PhotoGrid_1438695101540 
    Evening all,

    The frame above was just a test frame really to see if the idea worked, and i'm pleased to say it did! The photo is of me and my friend Laura who is also my shop assistant, without her i don't know where i'd be! She really is a lovely friend and great team member! I really love the effect of decopatch paper on photo frames and after making this one i went on to make another with slightly different embellishments as pictured below. I really love the colours and i used embellishments from 'Natures Gallery' range of papers and die cuts which i think work great with the purple - If you hadn't already guessed purple is my nannas favourite colour!

    I hope you like the photo frames, any questions on how i made these please give me a shout. I have created a step by step guide for decopatching which you can find here.

    Love and glitter,

  2. I created a stepper card! (hopefully thats the right name) I'm pretty proud of myself, i've not made one before. I created it using a basic square card and folding it, then using a raised strip to keep the step up in place. The papers are from the 'Folk Floral' range available on the website

    I even tried to make the card look nice when folded flat.

  3. Origami is something i've always loved the look of and wanted to try, i gave it a go recently and i'm pretty good at it.


    This particular piece though was made by my partner Jon who is actually just as creative as me! He is brilliant with creative ideas and is working on some top secret projects at the moment that i hope to share with you soon. In the meantime here is a card i created using an origami flower he made for me. I added colours i felt blended well with the origami paper and a centre to the centre. I thought the gems to the edges also gave it a little something extra.

    Please let me know what you think :-)

  4. As many of you know i have two sons, Reuben age 4 and Finley age 3. They enjoy arts and crafts as much as i do!

    We spend a lot of time in my art room, exploring the arts & crafts using different materials and mediums. Reuben especially likes to try out different things that he hasn't used before. Below is a picture Reu created using oil pastels, he chose these after a good 10mins looking on the crafty shelves asking questions about the different mediums and materials. I have to say i was really impressed with his final piece, so much that i have framed it and hung it in our home!
