Eastern Palace Suite Available to Order


Happy May Day

I hope everyone has been having a wonderful bank holiday. I spent a large part of it taking my mother plant shopping. She has bought tons of tubs, compost and plants. We only moved into this house last year so this is the year to start getting the garden into shape. We have quite a big back garden and a little bit out front as well. I bought some tomatoes to plant, also going to get some potatoes and later on lettuce. I love planting food. It is so rewarding to eat veggies you grew yourself.

Last month I went to convention in Amsterdam. I have never been to Amsterdam so was great to be able to go sight seeing as well. I saw Anne Frank’s house which I have always wanted to see as well as the Van Gogh Museum. The bonus of going to convention is you get to see the paper version of the new annual Stampin’ Up! catalogue and do a special pre order. I have done a video showing all the goodies I got in my order as well as the Eastern Palace Suite.

The Eastern Palace Suite is a suite of products in the new catalogue that is being made available as two special bundles ahead of the new catalogue launch. You can purchase them from today until 31st May through my online shop. The best bit is that you also get a freebie with each bundle. Yeah!!!

Until next time.

Birthday Card using So Detailed Thinlits


I hope you are all well. It is grey wet day here in Lincoln. Definitely not the type of day to poke your nose outside.  I therefore decided to do some crafting to cheer up myself up and thought I would share this birthday card I made with you.

I absolutely love this die set. It is so intricate and detailed but cuts beautifully, all the little pieces come out easily and there is no struggle to get the die cut out of the die. It comes in a bundle with “So in Love” stamp set with a saving of 10%.

Well until next time “Enjoy being Creative”.

Balloon Pop Up Card


Happy New Year!!!

It has been ages since I have blogged. Unfortunately life has got in the way. It is a lovely sunny day here in Lincoln, unlike the rest of the country we didn’t get any snow, just rain. I thought I would share this balloon pop up card with you today. I just love these thinlits as they make such a nice card that just makes you smile.  The colour combination is also one of my favourites.

I hope you have a great weekend and enjoy being creative.

Christmas Washi Tape Card


I hope that you are well. Can you believe it that we are starting to make Christmas cards. Eeek!!! The clocks go back in a few weeks too. It really feels as if winter is on the way and I am starting to feel the cold. I thought I would start my Christmas cards and do something enjoyable on these longer and longer nights.



This is a very simple card made using the Candy Cane Lane washi tape. I like this kind of card as it is the type that you can make in bulk with out too much difficulty. I rediscovered my love of heat embossing too. There is always something magical watching the  powder turn from a dull silver to this bright metallic silver colour.

The accent stars are the metallic enamel shapes. I do love enamel dots. You get a range of designs in one package which is great.

Until next time enjoy being creative

Happy Birthday Easel Card

Hello again,

It is a lovely sunny day here in Lincoln, such a treat after all the grey we have had recently. I am still learning to drive. I take my second test on 24th October. My instructor was off on holiday in Portugal last week so I restart my lessons tomorrow.

I have a birthday card to show you today. The stamp set is Painter’s Palette. The easel in the set just seemed to fit an easel card so that is what I made.


I love the stamp set Painter’s Palette as you can use the easel as I have but you can also you the square insert of the easel to make interesting backgrounds. I do love the new colour sweet sugar plum which is the colour of the ribbon used here.

Well I am off to enjoy the sun before it runs away.

Enjoy being Creative

Thank You Card


I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. The sun is shining here in Lincoln though I fear its not going to last. I have a cute and simple thank you card to share with you today.


The dimensions for the card are as follows:

  • A6 card base from thick whisper white cardstock
  • 1 inch width piece of normal whisper white cardstock
  • DSP – 14.4cm x 10cm

This card uses the tin of cards stamp set that also coordinates with our tin of cards kit. This is a great kit as with the stamp set it allows you to make 16 cards for a variety of occasions all stored in a lovely tin that you can keep reusing.

The designer series paper is Affectionately Yours. It is great paper pack and includes two speciality papers that are copper foiled. They go great with our copper foil sheets and copper embossing powder, so be sure to check them out.

A list of supplies used is listed below as well as the accompanying video. I hope you are inspired and thank you for visiting.

Enjoy being Creative.

Card Storage Box Tutorial

Hello again,

I have a tutorial today for you. We made this in my craft club a few months ago. It is a very versatile storage box that can be used to store cards you have made, embossing folders or even scraps of card.


This is an easy box to make as you need just one piece of 12 x 12 cardstock to make the basic box. I have two of these boxes in my craft room to store my cards that I have made and another to store cards that I need to blog about.

I have a video on my YouTube channel showing you how to make it. You can see the supplies used below.  The measurements are as follows:


One side – 6 and 9 inches.

Second side –  1/2 inch, 3 1/2 inches, 8 1/2 inches, 11 1/2 inches.

DSP measurements –

  • 7cm x 7cm x 2 pieces
  • 7cm x 12cm x 1 piece

If you have any questions, then don’t hesitate to send me a message.

Enjoy being Creative!!
