My First Ever DT Assignment!


I am so excited to share the exciting news that I am now part of the design team for The Paper Fundays Challenge blog!!! You can join in the fun and potentially win a prize by using this link;

For my first assignment I chose Coffee Bean Bestie (as pictured above) by Sherri Baldy Besties. I coloured the image using Black Widow pencils and then cut it out using an oval cutting die. I used Dried Marigold distress ink around the edges. I then created an oval easel card base and attached the image to it, using some coffee cups from my stash as the stoppers.

Links to this months challenge sponsors can be found below:

I also created two cards for the love is in the air twist challenge.

Tripple Time Stenciling


Hello everyone, this year I think there are going to be a few trends in crafting.
I think the trends we see will be:
Flat cards 
Using your current stash
Supporting small businesses when we do need supplies.

With that in mind I decided I wanted to find another use for my stencils, I thought I would see if it was possible to adapt a stamping technique for a stencil.

You can find a video tutorial for the process I used by using the link below:

For this card the cards sizes I used were:


5 7/8" sq
4 1/8" sq
3 1/2" sq


5 1/4" sq
4" sq
2" 7/8 sq

I hope you find this useful and will give it ago. I would love to see what you come up with so please tag me in your creations if you share them anywhere

Nativity box scene


For the final week of my Christmas mini series I decided to create a nativity scene  which had three different ways to display it. 

I took the exploding box concept and adapted it to suit my project. A video of the project being created is linked below.

The measurements for the basic box were from Mixed up Craft but the adaptions are my own.

I have used the characters from Nativity by Craft Consortium and Helz Cuppleditch, the Dsp for the outside of the stable is from Cottage Garden which again is by Craft Consortium and Helz Cuppleditch, the stamp for the inside walls is by Docrafts.

Card Base:

4 pieces of 4 × 9" card, score on the longside at 4"

The lid is one piece of 8 × 8" cardstock scored at 1" and 2" on all four sides.

The Dsp has all been cut down by the smallest amount as I didn't require a boarder.

The circle dies used are 2 5/8" for the window, 3 1/4" for the acetate.

I also used a magnet for the closure and have since ordered rice lights to light the box from the inside.

Theatre Set Card


This week I have made another Theatre Set Card.

I first found these on the pop up channel but they are very popular in the craft community at the moment and there are many resources available on how to make this card.

I have filmed a video of my take on this card and it is available on my YouTube channel,

the measurements and scoring details are below.


4 pieces 6 × 4 1/8"

2 pieces 5 1/8 × 1"


3 pieces 2 7/8 × 4"

1 piece 5 7/8 × 4"

2 pieces 1 3/8 × 4"

*4" is the height when working with the DSP, be careful when directional paper, to ensure the pattern goes the correct way *


You will need to score two of your 6 × 4 1/8" pieces at 1 1/2" and 3" on the long side.
