Christmas in June

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well, enjoying the lovely sunshine we have been having this week.

We have been very busy with Christmas in June at Create and Craft, we were delighted you loved our Christmas in June range, by how busy the shows were, thank you so much for this.

I thought I would show you two cards we made for the shows. The first one is using the Christmas Recipes and flowers also using the glitter embossing powders and vellum. I just love the effect of the embossing on the vellum also the option to print on this vellum from cds etc is just amazing. The second card is using the sentiment Noel and this is just a simplistic card but so classy in my opinion.

Thank you so much for spending time to read my post and leaving comments.

Now I just want to mention we are in Doncaster in a couple of weeks at Crafting Live at the racecourse, its going to be an amazing show we hope you can join us.

See you there,

Carol xx

A little bit shabby.

Hello everyone,

 I hope you are all well. I am sorry I haven't posted for a while again I just don't know where the time goes.

Anyway here goes I am sharing a card I have made ready for our shows on Create and Craft tomorrow (22nd May) at 1 pm and 7 pm I do hope you can join us.

This card has been made using our new cd called A little bit shabby, and this is the pale blue option and grey, the colours just go together so nicely.
I have also used our new stamp set called Pearly and Swirly, with also another new item the Magical Midnight pearl collection these are just divine and will match alot of colurs too.

All the products that I have used are exclusive to Create and Craft so be sure to watch the show and bag a bargain as some of the products will be half price.

Thank you for taking the time to look and I look forward to reading your comments.

Have a lovely day,

Carol xx

Triple Heart card

Hello Everyone,

I  hope you are all well.

I thought I would share this triple heart card I created using Dreamees Crafty Card Templates cd available at

First of all the card is created using the heart shape on the cd, I printed these out at normal size then half size then quarter size to enable me to make the base card.

 I then drew around these shapes onto cream card and cut out each one,  After this I then cut each of the above templates in half which I printed on the white paper, then folded these in half so I could then create the fold on the main cream cards.
I then covered the base of each heart shape then glued these to the base of the large heart as shown in the following picture.

When attaching these hearts together make sure you have enough room between each one for the easel type card to be created.
Then going back to the first 3 templates ( which are now in half ) you printed out draw around these onto cream card continuing the top of the heart curve. Then decorate these 3 hearts as you wish, you can see in the last picture how I decorated mine using Dreamees  puffball, flower shower and ornate flowers and flourishes stamps, I then added Dreamees pearls to finish off.

I hope you have enjoyed this post and try it yourself.

Take care Carol x

By the fire

Hello Everyone,

I am really sorry to have let all this time lapse before writing another post, the time has just escaped me and when I looked just now I couldn't believe it was September when I last posted.

Anyway here I am with a post this evening as we are on Create and Craft tomorrow (Saturday) with the lovely Natasha, with our new collection called By the Fire, I do hope you like it as mush as we do, there is so much you can do with it, of course you can do Christmas but we have tried to inspire you all to use this as everyday cards and projects as well.

I am posting a picture of one of the Fireplace MDF which Hayley has made up and it is really gorgeous, she will be demonstrating this on our show tomorrow so please try and tune in, its not to be missed and Im sure we will get to give this one away too so keep the e mails coming in.

I am now going to get my nails etc done so all nice for the show, then an early night as we have to be up a little earlier than normal tomorrow.

Have a nice weekend.

sunny sunflowers

Hello Everyone,
I hope you are all well, all fine here we have a busy weekend as tomorrow we have  workshops all day at Craftstation in Kirkby In Ashfield where we will be making fairy doors with the ladies. On Sunday we have 2 shows on Create and Craft the first being 9 am with the lovely Joanne, then the 1 pm one with Dean, Im sure they both will be fun shows and I hope you can get to e mail in always great items to giveaway.

My project for today is a double mdf heart I just adore this so much and it would be a really lovely gift for someone. The lovely new papers which are on the cd called Fanciful Fabrics are just gorgeous and they give you a lovely fabric effect when attached to either mdf or a card. There are lots of colours on the cd too, Im sure its a must have and will be used whenever you get your crafting out.

I have edged the heart with some lace and made a bow with the same lace which is divine, I have mounted the smaller heart on top of the larger one to add interest, then the new stamps are sunflowers so beautiful in a few different sizes. Also the sprig stamp has been stamped onto cream card and placed behind the sunflowers, I then finished with the sentiment stamped onto the mdf and then pearls placed on one side of the heart.

I hope you will be able to tune in for our shows we are so looking forward to them,

Thank you for taking the time to have a look on my blog I do appreciate it so much.

Take care and have a lovely weekend.

Carol xx
