About Me

My photo

Been crafting in one form or another for too many years to remember.  Enjoy many crafts but  cardmaking and papercraft is my main passion.   I have been married for 42+years and have two lovely daughters and 4 fantastic grandchildren.

Image from Linnie Pink's new So Cute CD.  Butterflies and borders are tattered lace.  Simple but pretty.

Hexagonal Box.

This one takes a wee while to do but is well worth it.  I stamped it out and embossed the design using gold embossing powder then painted before gluing it all together.  Its a really sturdy box and can be done in whatever colour you like.

Boxing Clever!

Just  had a look over my blog and thought I should add some pictures of the boxes I have made.  Bare with me though as it seems things have changed since I last used this blog page!  If I make any mistakes please can someone let me know so I can rectify it.

These were for the cupcakes at my Grandsons birthday party.  Football crazy so the obvious topper had to be a football. Put it on two of the sides to balance it and He was real pleased with the result.

Extended Box

Made this one using a Tonic Die.  I cut it twice and layered it on top of each other to give me the height I needed for the gift I was putting inside.   I "hid the join" by covering it with the multiple row of glitz,  added the butterfly and a few coloured diamantes and it came out quite well I think.
