I’ve been busy creating some baby cards for all the new little ones who have come into the world recently! The stampset – Something for Baby – and matching Baby’s First Framelits are on the retiring list. You can still order both items (the stamp set is now available only in wood mount). To create … Read more Something for Baby – and a fun technique!
I demonstrated at a lovely workshop on Saturday……and this was the card that we made! The hostess (*waving “Hi” Carole*) requested that we use this stampset: Simply Sketched (which is one of the sets that hostesses can choose to get with their free shopping $$$$). Here is the whole set (you’ll find all the hostess … Read more Simply Sketched
Just some quick cards I whipped up on the weekend. I love water colouring………it is soooooo relaxing. Now, I am by no means what you would consider an artist, but, I believe, with the right tools, anyone can create something stunning with a little bit of that “wow” factor.

I swiped the cardstock with my Embossing Buddy anti-static pad before … Read more Embossing
I was feeling the need to create something in honour of Valentines Day and for my three workshops this weekend I thought I would nominate watercolouring as the technique for the make-n-takes. The Merci set from the Sale-A-bration catalogue has become my firm favourite and I blame it for my recent Blender Pen burnout……..I think … Read more Merci
I have been enjoying getting to know my new niece, Olivia. It amazes me that she is only 6 weeks old and already smiling and “talking” and mimicking sounds. I forgot how much babies can change in such a short time. Here is a frame that I made for her bedroom. It is meant, of … Read more Photo Frame for Olivia

I still had the others at home wondering what to do with them while the water teamed down outside. In the end, … Read more The simple things…….
