Easter treats

Hello lovely people,

I have just had a really lovely weekend and isn’t it nice to have slightly warmer weather?  We went for a pub lunch with friends on Saturday followed by a walk in beautiful sunshine; maybe Spring is finally here?!

I also spent some time sharing my crafting supplies with a friend who is just starting out making cards and helped her make her first card – we were both so proud!

One thing I really enjoy at Easter is making little treat bags for my niece and nephews and this year I wanted to try a gift bag design that I saw on Pinterest.  I didn’t print the template or use the dimensions from the original post (which you can find here) but just messed around with some scrap paper until I found a size that I liked.

I attached a flap of card to the back of the bag then folded it over the front and added a sweet mini peg to keep it all closed up.  I popped some eggs in a cellophane bag and they fitted perfectly in the space inside!

Here’s what it looks like inside so you can see the folding;

The images are a set from Pink Petticoat which I coloured with Copics then cut out with a circle Nestie die and layered onto a scalloped circle cut with my Cricut.

I would like to enter these in the following challenges;

1) Papertake Weekly (Anything Goes +/- Kraft card)

2) Cute Card Thursday (Something borrowed – the idea from Pinterest)

3) ABC (K is for Kraft)

4) Sweet Stampin’ (Scallops)

Thanks so much for visiting,




On the edge

Hello lovely people,

Our theme at Totally Gorjuss this week is ‘Happy’ and we have TWO lovely sponsors; The Ribbon Girl and Saturated Canary.  It certainly made me very happy to get a free SC digi stamp to work with this week so thanks Krista 😀  I chose Cali Girl and some fresh yellow and blue DP to bring a little taste of the summer we will hopefully have this year!

So, why the post title?  Well, I am on the edge of ProMarker cliff readying myself to jump off into the big wide Copic sea!  I have been thinking about it for a while and my colouring of this image convinced me that I needed to try it so some Copics have been ordered; watch this space!  Until then, here is the image coloured with ProMarkers/FlexMarkers;

Grow a little love

Hello lovely people,

Yes, it is the weekend again and I can’t believe it is nearly Valentine’s Day!  The challenge at Totally Gorjuss this week fits in with this perfectly as it is ‘Love’ and we are sponsored by Crafters Companion who will give one lucky person £10 to spend online 🙂

I have used another Tiddly Inks image; this time it is Wryn – Grow a Little Love and I think she is just adorable.  I have layered up the panels without my usual Kraft card border except round the image and coloured Wryn with ProMarkers/Flexmarkers.  I have kept the layout simple so it would be suitable for my lovely hubby 🙂  I hope he doesn’t mind a couple of pearls though!

Hello lovely people,

Unbelievably this is my second card of the day so if you are looking for my Totally Gorjuss GDT card then scroll on down…

When I saw the theme for the Tiddly Inks challenge this week it was the perfect excuse to get another one of their gorgeous digistamps and I have picked Wryn – Fairy Friends; isn’t she just the cutest?  I have coloured her with ProMarkers and FlexMarkers and just added a tiny bit of TH Frayed Burlap ink round the edges of the DP panels.

Hello lovely people,

The theme at Totally Gorjuss this week is flowers and we have two lovely sponsors; The Ribbon Girl and Bugaboo.   I have used this sweet image called Fancy SB Flowers from Bugaboo and as usual, it is coloured with Promarkers, the edges of the DP are inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap, and the stitching was done by hand.  I intended to add a sentiment but it just didn’t look right wherever I put it so I gave up and left it off!

Little helpers

Hello lovely people,

Here is another simple Christmas card using a sweet digital stamp from Pink Petticoat, which I have coloured with ProMarkers.

trees and robins

I have added little spots of glitter over the dots around the stars but could not get it to show up very well in the photos.  Maybe you can just about see it here, if you squint(!);

Krafty colouring

Hello lovely people,

The Passion for ProMarkers Challenge theme is ‘colouring on Kraft’ this week and I thought I would give it a go.  I took the good advice to choose a simple image and keep the colouring really simple.  I am not sure what I think of my attempt but am glad I gave it a go and would maybe try something more ambitious next time.
