For a friend

It has been a while since I blogged anything other than my DT projects. So it is time to correct that.

This card has now been received so I can now share this.

This card is made using papers by Dreamees, flower stamps by Dreamees and a lovely image from Magnolia stamps. I also used a piece of MDF just to add some interest. I used the Totally Teal paper pack from Dreamees and all my colours are intended to blend with that. I do like to try and colour my images to match a chosen pad of paper. The card base is 7x7inches. I love working on a large surface!

I hope you like what I have shared and there will be more soon.

Much love


Through the Craft Room Door DT challenge week

Hello and here I am again with a new project for TTCRD. This week we are sponsoring the challenge so the team have used what they would like to create the projects.

This is my project

I have created this Christmas card using an image from Magnolia and the rest of my project (apart from the Ribbon and the glass like pieces on the base) are by my favourite brand Dreamees.

The card base is 8×8 and I have used a piece of paper from the Dreamees Monochrome Christmas pad which is no longer available. The image is coloured in using some normal coloured pencils. To mount the image I used a piece of card embossed using FairIsle embossing folder and mounted on some silver paper (in my stash). Before I mounted them on the paper I used a die from Christmas Edge Sentiment Die Set and cut that down to decorate the edge. The white poinsettia is from the latest Dreamees collection Prescision Perfect Christmas Poinsettia Die Collection . I added a bow and pearls.

I really hope that you like my project for this week and don’t forget to visit us at Through the Craft Room Door

see you soon


TTCRD – DT post for 14th September 2021

Hello everyone and welcome to my DT post for this week. I have to say that I am disappointed with my make this week. When I coloured it, things were not right and I did not have a chance to cut out another piece. As I was adding my watermark I saw that I could digitally change the colour…so I did. What you see is not what I made but I do like my digital version. This is now a page in my art journal.

We have a challenge over at Through the Craft Room Door Sponsored by Pinksy Doodles. Join us and submit your craft piece to be in a chance of winning.

Lots of love


TTCRD DT for 31st August 2021

Hello there and welcome to another post for my Through the Craft Room Door Challenge Blog which is sponsored by DRS. The full post from all the DT can be found here.

For the challenge this week I have used the images Sunflower Bucket and Sending you Sunshine and from there I have made the following card.

This was a simple card to make. I coloured the image in using Spectrum Noir alcohol pens and then cut the image out, mounted that on some black card and cut around it again. I did the same with the sentiment. The papers I have used are called Ray of Sunshine and these are by Dreamees, my go to brand for all my papers. I thought the lovely colours an the sunflowers on the paper were just right for this image. All made on an 8×8 card.

I hope you like what I have created for this challenge and pop back soon as I hope to post some more cards very soon.

Lots of love


ATG Challenge for Through the Craft Room Door – August 17th 2021

Hi there!

Thank you for joining me once again.

This week I have a make which is my current project for Through the Craft Room Door. We are sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps but unfortunately the site is temporarily closed so I cannot give you a link to the image I have used which is called Add More Wine.

I have kept this simple, by just colouring the image and mounting it on a card. I can always add a sentiment at a later date if it is for a birthday card but for now I am leaving it blank.

I hope that you like my project and I look forward to sharing more of my work with you soon.
