Hello Lovely! Handmade Cards for Mother's Day and more.....

Hello Friends,

Mother's Day is only next month, and I was inspired to create a new kit to celebrate the Lovely Ladies in our lives.

My previous themed kit "Celebrating Sisterhood" was extremely popular and sold out.  I just knew I had to have a similar theme this year as I think it is so important to acknowledge other Women in our lives with kind words.  Let's use our creativity to reach out to others, inspire and uplift and truly express our thoughts rather than keeping them bottled up inside.

Even if you find it hard to express yourself with the written word, a handmade card speaks volumes!

Introducing....

Hello Lovely! - Card Making Kit

Filled with gorgeous papers, cardstock stickers, embellishments and ribbons.  This kit comes with everything you need to create these stunning cards.  Additional items required are your basic kit of cutting tools and double sided tape, dimensional tape and glue.  This kit is a great Childrens activity also.  To find out more or purchase click here.

Have a happy day

A Collage of Card Making inspiration

Hello and Happy 2015,

I thought I would pop in today and share a collage of cardmaking inspiration which is currently on my homepage but won't be for too much longer.  By adding it here it will always been a point of reference for some card ideas when you visit this blog.


Even though I don't always post here you can find up to date photos on instagram and facebook.  I usually post there a few times a week.

Hope 2015 has been good to you so far.

Inspiration Exists but it has to find you working

Over the last couple of weeks I have felt the call to create another Card Making Kit - with photos and instructions, the kind that I used to create.  I lost interest in making them up and felt totally bored with designing and typing out my step by step process, photographing etc.   However after a year of not having created one I really felt the call to design a new Christmas Kit

Every day over the last couple of weeks things would come up, people would need me, orders would come flying through my inbox, urgent orders, or I was too tired, or it was night time, I prefer not to create at night because I can't match the colours as well, so pretty much every type of resistance you can imagine really.

Anyway this week I declared publically  on Instagram and Facebook that I would sit down and make a start for a new Christmas Kit.  I already had the supplies here I just need to sit and do it.  I declared it for two reasons, firstly to let my customers know that I was creating a kit and also to keep myself accountable.  Wouldn't you  know it, over two days the kit was designed, created, typed up and photographed and for sale on my site.  Amazing what inspired action can do.  When I first sat down the ideas weren't coming and I was spending way too much time on even the first card to get it right.  However once the first card was done that was it, the rest just flowed, suprisingly quickly.

When you declare to do something and sit your butt down no matter what and create, inspiration and ideas will show up and you will get into the flow.  "Inspiration exists but it has to find you working"  Love this quote by Pablo Picasso, it is up on the wall in my studio as a constant reminder.

After that really long background to the birth of this kit, here it is below, you can purchase on site, just click on the photo to find out more about this kit.
