French Bulldogs and Retrievers

Hi Everyone.

Here’s the French Bulldogs and Retrievers I’ve done for a friend.


This is Frankie & Freddie.


This is Toby.


This one’s not got a name yet as this is an extra one I made as I wasn’t sure which colour my friend wanted.

I’ve now been asked for English Bulldog, Black Poodle, Border Terrier, Cavalier King Charles. German Shepherd and Cats. So watch this space. I think I’m gonna be a little busy 😀

Dogs Galore

Hi Everyone.

Just thought I’d share some doggie creations with you.

dsc05050Can you Guess the Breeds?

Here he is in his presentation box.

Here’s a few more.


Maisie & Roo my son’s dogs.



They are also boxes so can hold little treats and I thought I could give them a Santa hat and turn them into treat boxes for your pooches for Christmas.


Please let me know your thoughts and

check back for some more breeds soon

8×8 Easel Card

Hi Everyone.

Here’s the card I made for my Mum’s Birthday

This is an 8×8 easel card.



The base card and layers were cut using Tonic dies. I’ve added stamped sentiments, a floral arrangement, some beaded pins and a bow.

Recent Makes

Hi everyone.

Not much blogging going on this year, so here’s some things I’ve made.


This is 8×8 in size. I’ve used an embossing folder to create the feature panel and added some gilding wax to highlight areas. The die cut on the side has also been waxed.


This is A5 in size. The characters have also been decoupaged but it doesn’t show too well in this picture.


This is A6 in size.The elements have been die cut from black card and pebeo waxes have been added to give them a metallic finish.


This is 8×8 in size. Most of this has been cut on my silhouette portrait. The name was done with an embossing folder then die cut.


This is 8×8 in size. I’ve cased this card from pintrest. I’ve used a Lili of the Valley image and embossed the background.


This is 8×8 in size. I’ve used my latest heartfelt creations sunrise lily collection for this one and one of their edge dies. I just love their products.

I’d like to thank all of you for stopping by even though there’s been nothing new for a while, it’s very much appreciated 😀

That’s all for now.

Christmas Wishes

Happy Monday everyone.

Here’s a couple of Christmas cards today.

I bought these stamps from Cardio on my recent visit to the hobbycrafts show and I’ve cased these cards from them, thank you for the inspiration.

DSC04914I’ve stamped starting with the sentiment and then the foliage in brown and green ink onto white card. Then I’ve inked around the edges in green and added some black pen lines around the border. Then I’ve covered the whole piece with double-sided adhesive sheet and sprinkled diamond sprinkles over the surface to give it that sparkle. Then I’ve matt and layered the piece onto brown and kraft cardstock and added some red pva sparkle berries.


For this one I’ve masked off a section along the middle of the white card square. I’ve stamped the foliage and pine cones along the edges of the mask. Then I’ve applied green ink along the edges of the mask. The mask has then been removed and then I’ve stamped the sentiment, the fir cone and holly. This has then been matt and layered to finish the card.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi everyone.

Here’s a lipstick card made completely on my silhouette portrait. It was for a beautician.


I took a lipstick file that I bought from the silhouette store and enlarged it to fill the A4 mat, I duplicated it and welded the two pieces together to make the base card.Then I cut all the layers for the lipstick but before I cut the silver band, I added Lucy’s name.


I cut a key (another silhouette store file) an oval with an off set and a 21 to layer on the top. Also I added some bling to give it some sparkle.
