Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by my blog page today.  Well it's the start of November and Christmas preparations are well underway NOT!!!  As usual well behind but as usually I will catch up, I keep telling myself I work better under pressure!!  :)

I want to share with you a lovely new collection from Stampin Up called Framed Florets.  Oh my goodness this is a beautiful collection of stamps, dies, DSP and embellishments.  Some of the dies line up to cut out the flowers in the DSP - I love it when that happens no fussy cutting required!!    Available on 1/11/2022 until 4/1/2023!  I think this is going to be a big hit with any crafter!  To purchase just click above to access my shop!  Hope you are in love with this collection as much as I am and I'm off to make some cards.

Until next time,

Keep on Stamping


Today's product highlight is the Gingham Cottage DSP now available in the current mini catalogue.  A very versatile lot of papers for any occasion.  Here I have used the Pumpkin Pie cardstock as the base, embossed a basic white cardstock using the Let's Celebrate embossing folder as the other half to the DSP.  I used the black and white Gingham ribbon to hide the seam of the two papers.  The rectangles are pieces of white cardstock which I have randomly stamped on my stamparatus and stampin write markers to create some nice floral paper to the card. The flower stamps are from the Lovely You stamp set.   The sentiment is from Biggest Wishes stamp set which I have stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I hope you like today's card and hope that you consider the gorgeous Gingham Cottage DSP on your next project.  Allthe products used are listed below for ease of ordering and you can shop here on my safe and secure online shop.  

Until next time

Happy Father's Day to all the magnificent dads out there.  You are awesome.  So here's the Father's Day card I made this year.  The He's The Man suite was perfect for this card.  All the products used are listed below.  This is a great set for your male cards.  The DSP is especially nice as there are two sheets of pre cut images and sentiments.  You can find out all about the He's The Man Suite and the He's all That stamp set on page 79 of the Annual Catalogue.  I have used Cajun Craze and Sahara Sand and Crushed Curry. 

Until next time

Well hello and thanks for stopping by.  With the onset of Spring I have decided to launch my very own monthly card challenges.  I would love it you could take part.  Being the start of Spring, I thought how appropriate to have a very floral card challenge.  I will supply you with a basic template design and then the rest is up to you to come up with something beautifully floral.  Here is the basic template.  For those who have not participated in any card challenges before, this template is just a design guide.  The flowers displayed are only there to say "this is where flowers should go" not necessarily daisies.  If you have any queries please feel free to contact me on 0419721561 or email me at  Only open to Australians though as for this very first card challenge I will be offering a small prize for the best creativity.  So here's the template.  If you could use as many Stampin Up products as possible that would be even better.  


1. This is only a very basic template to use.

2. Can be any colour, the more colours the better.

3. The daisies are only indicative that this is where flowers should be.

4. The more floral the better, remember it's Spring.

5. Texture is good.

6. Any occasion sentiment is fine.

Any queries please Facebook message me or text me on 0419721561 or email

For this very first challenge there will be a small prize so only Australians to enter please.

I will draw the winner on Friday 30th September.

Happy crafting and I can't wait to see what you all come up with.

I have started this first challenge with a very basic layout.  I will display my card just prior to announcing the winner.  To enter, just display your card in the comments of this post below.  If you have trouble saving the pic of your card, please email me and I will display it for you.  You can also go to my Facebook page and display it there if you wish.  Good luck and happy crafting.
