Winnie Ballerina Spinner Card

I recently made a selection of cards for Die Cutting Essentials Magazine using the amazing Winnie Dies from Polkadoodles.


The dies are designed in such a way that you can use them to create a rear view for the characters. in view of this, what better use of the cute Ballerina die than a spinner card?


Cute isn't she?

Thanks for stopping by today. I'll be back tomorrow with another card using the Winnie Dies. I hope you can join me?

Stampin' Unicorn Perfect Petals - Black Magic

So who's stolen the year? I'm truly shocked that I haven't posted since January!!! My intentions were all good for this year, but sadly I lost my Gran in January and then have been in hospital, so blogging sort of fell completely by the wayside!

I'm glad to say that I've not been completely idle craftwise. Infact I've been super busy creating and demonstrating. Some of you may have spotted a couple of pieces of work I had published in Craft Stamper Magazine. Here's one of my projects using the Perfect Petals stamp set from Polkadoodles.


Whilst I'm here I'll just give you the heads up that I'll be in Clarkes Stationers, Bond Street, Brighton on Saturday 28th April from 10am til 4pm demonstrating some fabulous goodies from docrafts. If you're passing please pop into say "hi" and see what I'm getting upto.

I'll be back tomorrow to share another project, so it would be great if you stop by.

Snowflake Peg Ornament

Just a quickie from me today. I wanted to show you this super easy, super cute snowflake ornament made from clothes pegs. There are loads of tutorials out there for making them, so I won't bore you with the details, just Google Peg Snowflakes 😉


Anyhow, once I'd made the snowflake I gave it coat of Gesso and inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I found a long forgotten pot of Diamond Dust and so gave it a generous sprinkle of that, cos you can never have too much sparkle right?

I then embellished it with the Frosted Fir Adornments and Winters Breath Embellishment Kit from Polkadoodles.

The NOEL was created by ME on my Brother Scan n Cut.... can you tell I'm super proud of myself 😂

I'm undecided as to if this should hang or top my tree....

Thanks for popping in today.

Quick and Easy Christmas Shadow Box


Just whizzing in today to share a super quick and easy piece of home decor. This makes a perfect gift and you cost out the time vs materials it actually makes a good replacement as a card. You'll have to excuse the photos but the weather today is absolutely dire and I didn't have time to faff setting up a lightbox and getting the lighting right, so it's a quick snapshot.


Anyhow, I removed the back panel and glass from the frame. I then covered the back panel with some gorgeous paper from Stampin Unicorn and popped it securely back into the frame.

Next I took some of the Moss from the Winter's Breath Embellishment Kit and used hot glue to secure it to the base. I then cut and arranged some of the gorgeous Frosted Fir Adornments, Glittered Large Branch and Conifer Spray  from Polkadoodles into the frame, allowing some of it to overlap the frame. Once I was happy with the layout I hot glued it into position and added fir cones, cinnamon sticks, a paper poinsettia and a cute little robin.

To finish I added a glittered sentiment and some wooden snowflakes.

I hope you like my project.

Thanks for stopping by.

Stampin' Unicorn Pillow Box

So did you catch the new products from Stampin' Unicorn on Hochanda on Sunday? If so you may have caught sight of this cute little pillow box that I created for them.



I've stamped images from the Small Beginnings Stamp Set over a Bare Basics Pillow Box and then coloured them in with pencils. The tag has been cut from the Bits and Pieces Ephemera Paper Pad. To finish, I've added some glitter, pearls and a gorgeous lace flower from the Heavenly Dreams Embellishment Kit.

If you get five minutes why not pop over to the Stampin' Unicorn Blog and see what the rest of my teamies got upto? There are some seriously amazing projects.

Thanks for stopping by today.
