We’ve made gorgeous cards for Mother’s Day and now it’s time to make cards for the men in our lives. If you’re like most card makers, inspiration doesn’t come so easily when it comes to male-themed cards. It takes a while to get the colours or the image right before we are truly happy with […]

Card Inspiration – The Power Of A Little Hello

Hello is such a powerful word. When walking down the street, do you say hello to the people around you? I am often in a rush to get my chores and errands done when I’m out and about but having a two-year old in tow brings me down to earth and also means that we […]

Envelope Inspiration – Waste Not, Want Not

As I was clearing some shelves in the craft house, I noticed my pile of magazines building up in the corner. Today is the day that I will make something out of them. In the spirit of reducing, reusing and recycling, I decided to make envelopes out of each and every page of the magazine. […]

Card Inspiration – Let’s Do Big, Shall We?

I love big stamps and I cannot lie. Did you just sing that in your head? There’s no doubt that we are drawn to big things – posters, letters, big sale signs, big cake… When it comes to making cards, big stamps deliver. Big stamps speak for themselves. Using them means minimal effort with big […]

Card Inspiration – Colouring Books

Do you have colouring books that you finished ages ago but are just lying there doing nothing? Or, have you lost interest because your pens dried out? Colouring is a very relaxing hobby. Some people take their time colouring while others like to finish colouring a page at one sitting. My mum finished an entire […]

Card Inspiration – Shaker Card

Now here’s a card that’s lot of fun to make. Shaker cards have been around for ages but it’s nice to revisit this technique especially when there are new stamp sets and tools to make this card easier to make. The focal point of your card is the part where it shakes, the area where […]

Hello 2016 Catalogue. You’re so lovely.

June has finally arrived and so has the much anticipated copy. I must say that the 2016 catalogue is the loveliest thing that was delivered on my doorstep this month. I savoured every page with a nice cuppa and a  serviette to wipe the drool off my chin. So here it is, my favourite items […]

3-in-1 Card Layout

This layout is a great way to maximise your 6″x6″ paper. I only had a couple of very thin strips of paper that were too small to keep. No left-overs mean no small bits of paper piling up begging to be used at some point. Can you relate to this problem? Ok. Here’s how. Simply […]
