Art book for Kathi


I bought a little sketch book for Kathi (mr son's girlfriend) for Christmas but never gave it to her as it was boring and black, THEN I found the perfect paper to cover it.  I made a secret pocket with a tag inside under the big butterfly. All the butterflies are raised, I added one of my favourite arty quotes and it was done! The biggest challenge was getting the paper between the binding, but scissors and patience and it was done!



At least now it is a bit different to everyone elses!

Purple moments

Back in my crafty heaven after a bit of a break. I have made this tag for a challenge and thought you may like a look.  It uses Lavinia stamps, versamark and yummy mica powder

Anything goes!!


I hope you all had fun over Christmas and New Year.  I had both boys at home Christmas Day so I was in heaven! and New Year we spent at the Grand Hotel Brighton waited on hand and foot!

These are my favourite challenges as you can let your imagination run away with you.  Bought this tissue box ages ago and didn't really know what to do with it, but then with all the different scenes that you can create with Lavinia stamps, and especially with the fantastic door stamp it was obvious!!

Wishing you all a happy healthy new year!!
