Good evening crafty friends, followers and visitors :).
I have been enjoying making Kumihimo bracelets after watching a you tube video,
so I sent off  for some bits and bobs and these are what I have made so far.
This was my first one and I must admit I was quite pleased with it.

I found some seed beads in my drawer and had a play with them.
After my granddaughters saw them, they wanted one each for christmas.

Hello Friends, Crafters and followers I hope you are all keeping well. :)

If you have been wondering where I have been, well I  have been crafting in the background but I keep forgetting to update my blog... so here I am at last :).

I have always wondered how easy it is to do Zentangle,  I was lucky to come across a page on FB so I joined, oh boy it is so addictive and relaxing.

I printed the template from the FB page and printed it a couple of times onto copy paper to practise, This is what I finally finished with............

I went quite simple on the patterns to start me off.
 The template is from Ben Kwok.
What to do next is the big question !!!!!!!! :)

Scottish Emblem.....

Good morning fellow crafter`s, friends and visitors.

My apologies for being missing in action, my mojo yet again decided to go walkabout, so I took time out to get other things done that had been put to the sidelines.

As some of you might know I am on the Design Team for Delightful Digi`s Designs and Emma has created more fab images for all you crafter`s to enjoy. You can find them here:-

They are a complete change from everything else she has created and they are perfect for any scottish friend or family member.

I must admit what with  my mojo disappearing it took me time but I managed to colour them in then to sit and design the card.... yes I managed it so here they are.......

Thank you Emma they are Fab
This one is called Thistle Banner

Backing paper is the backing paper from delightful Digi`s Designs, which I took into gimp and made into a PNG to add colour.

Christmas Time is creeping up on us.........

Good evening to you all. I hope you are all well and crafting away.

I have no excuse for not blogging lately as I have made cards and they are already to be put on here, but just could not be bothered or had the time. That does sound awful, I just needed some time away from it.So I have been beavering away in the background plus having a good clean up of my craft room, still got bits to do.
After the day I have had I needed something constructive to do so what better way than to update my blog.

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to receive some lovely free craft goodies 
from Docrafts ( Emma Collins). It is mostly diecut decoupage which I have not done for yongs, so it bought memories back how I first got into craft making, mind you back in those days you had to cut them all out lol.

These were all made using 5x5 white cards
papers are from Dovecraft
first 2 are decoupaged and 3rd is just the topper
Dee`s Distinctively Sentiment dies
Corner snow die cannot remember where that one is from.

Butterfly Wedding Stationery.....

Good evening Crafty Friends, followers and visitors.
I hope you are all keeping well. Hugs to anyone who needs them.

Did you wonder where I have been !!!!!!!!. I decided to take a little break as I have been very busy making wedding stationery for my Avon lady Sonia who got married on 17th July so I am now able to show what I created for her. A few months ago I put the invitations on my blog after they were sent out, so all it left was the place settings and table planner.
Everything was a butterfly theme in chocolate box purple.
This wedding stationery is the first for me.... could I take this on ?????

Sonia already had the place cards so all I had to do was add names and embellish them.
The butterfly is from All Occasion Dies.
Purple card from Colman Print
 and for the butterfly trail Sakura pen.

Purple card from Colman Print
Tonic Header Dies Butterfly
All Occasion Butterfly Die.

These were the invites, apologies for the colour being different these were taken under artificial light.
Note to self.... Must do better lol.
