I’m a guest Gorjussette!

Hello lovely people,

I am super excited to have been picked for a guest DT spot at Totally Gorjuss Challenge and especially to work with the lovely talented DT ladies who have been so welcoming 🙂

Our challenge for this week is KISS, which prompted some debate as to what exactly this stood for; I’m going with Keep it Sweet and Simple and have made 2 new baby cards.

The baby clothes were cut using my Cricut and raised up on sticky foam pads.  I drew the washing line and the line around the clothes with a fineliner then added stitching round the panel and layered it onto the base card.    I nearly added some cute mini pegs but the scale would have been all wrong (yes, I am that picky – lol) and I quite like to keep my cards fairly flat for easier posting!

Sweet baby boy

Hello lovely people!

Some friends have just had a little baby boy so I immediately went to one of my favourite LOTV stamps, which I have coloured with ProMarkers.  I seem to have been making quite simple cards recently without much embellishment but this one was calling out for some added prettiness to go with the beautiful Maja papers!

Card recipe;

DP: Maja Vintage Summer collection

Sentiment: Personal Impressions Big Sentiments

Crochet flower: made by my mother-in-law!

White paper flowers / pearls / pearl brad: from Wild Orchid Crafts

Lace: from The Ribbon Girl

Foliage: cut with Cricut

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges;

1) Lili’s Little Fairies (anything goes)

2) I Love ProMarkers (anything goes)

3) Sweet Stampin’ (flowers)

Cute as a button


I love this Lili of the Valley stamp that I bought recently so couldn’t resist inking it up again and colouring it with ProMarkers to make a card for a baby girl.  I have kept the layout really simple with a little bit of sandpaper distressing round the edge of the DP and some ruffled seam binding which is my favourite thing at the moment!

Card recipe:

DP: MME Lost & Found Two – Blush

Edging: Tilda lace die from Magnolia

Seam binding: Wild Orchid Crafts

Sentiment: Big Sentiments by Personal Impressions

Button: from stash

I would like to enter the card in the following challenges;

Baby’s first birthday

Hi all,

Just a quick post from me while I am enjoying a day off work.  The weather is so rubbish I can’t get any gardening done but hey, that just means I will have to make cards instead 😉

I made this little rocker card for my nephew’s first birthday and it came together really quickly with a scrap of DP and some Bazill Basics.

Card recipe;

DP: MME Abbey Road

Tortoise/No.1: cut using Cricut (Create a Critter cartridge)

Letters: QuicKutz dies

I would like to enter the card in the Papertake Weekly challenge of anything goes with optional extra theme of  ‘for a man/boy.’

Thanks for looking,



Rock a bye baby


Passion for ProMarkers have challenged us to make a white on white card which usually fills me with dread but  then this new stamp from Lili of the Valley dropped through my letter box and I was filled with inspiration!

Since it was allowed under the rules of the challenge I have lightly chalked the edges of the pieces I used to build up the rocker card and also pricked some holes to add a little texture.  I used ProMarkers to colour the image apart from the blanket which I paper pieced from a scrap of MME paper. Here is a close up of the little cutie;

I finished the card off with a die cut swirl, a handmade crochet flower and some pearls.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges;

1) Passion for ProMarkers (white on white)

2)Penny Black and more at Allsorts (Oh so cute…)

3) CES Challenges (paper piecing)

4) Stamptacular (anything goes!)
