Scan n Cut

I have had my Scan n cut over a year now, believe me it is the most used piece of equipment in my craft room! Even more used than my beloved Pazzel and Robo.

I love using the scan n cut canvas software to design new projects and working on some shaped trellises which I will show more of.

I have also purchased some of the brilliant USBs available these really enhance my creativity no end

Fairies in a jar

Ta busy day today playing with fairies and glitter! My house, let's say is a little sparkly even my little yorkie Dora did not escape the fairy dust. I cut fairies with my Pazzles stuck them to the inside of the jar with ova glue then covered the outside with tissue paper added some iridescent glitter and finished with ribbon and embellishments. Then add a battery tea lite and It looks like you have a fairy in your jar.

Wedding Stationery

This is my Passion and the reason I started Paper crafting over 20 years ago.

Back in those days the crafting supplies where not as freely available there was no online buying But we managed. My first craft items where do crafts and I have never stopped buying them the stamp I used for this is Anita's

Mothers Day

Wow Mothering Sunday is early this year 6th March.
This cards I made from Spellbinder and Do craft Dies. I just love the fancy folds you can achieve with the dies

Flowers in a box

My first attempt at the little fold flat box cards they are quite easy to make. I think they are a brilliant concept for a card. I got the inspiration from blog hopping and Pinterest

Docrafts demonstration

well that's my first demonstration done. Although it was snowing when I travelled up to Perth this morning, there were plenty of Crafter's about buying lots of crafting goodies.

I did lots of stamping using the time capsule stamps and designed a couple of love birds from one of the shapes which most commented on. One gentlemen asked if he could buy it for his wife's birthday as she loved birds.

There were lots of people out for crafty goods to start wedding stationery.

I will be returning in February 13th I'll have the Xcut X press to show all the different card dies Xcut have and the demonstrate all the different looks you can get from them.
