Eastern Beauty meets Gorgeous Grape

By | 18/08/2018

The Eastern Beauty stamp set (143675) and the matching Eastern Medalians Thinlets Dies (143725) have been around for a while but I have only just discovered them myself. Now I wonder, “why didn’t I get them sooner?”.  I have had a fabulous time playing with the dies to create a variety of designs whether it… Read More »

This particular project was inspired by a card made by Laura Allen.  I… Read More »

Painted with Love

By | 14/04/2018

Do you know, that when I first saw the “Painted with Love” DSP, it didn’t appeal to me at all.  First off, I don’t do gold.  I tend to prefer silver/white gold instead.  All of my jewellery is silver coloured.  And then the main colours are rather bright pinks…..

Flying Home Again
