Last Christmas card

Well we are nearly there and I expect you have already sent all your cards....I must admit that I have a real problem starting with the Christmas cards and then I don`t want to stop as they are always so colourful so these are the last Christmas cards I will be posting this year.  They are so easy and are made using the Christmas sets.  I will be working on some new projects now for the new year so I will wish you all the best for a happy Christmas and new year and a huge thank for your custom this year.

Back at last

Hello at last

What a busy time its been in the last few months... something had to go on the back burner and it was the
Blog.... I wont bore you with all the details of my busy few months but this has been keeping me busy for the last few weeks....

Its absolutely lovely and great to have lots of space for workshops and classes, no more village halls!!

We forgot to book the painter so our weeks break was spent painting, well Jon did it all.  Anyway he certainly did a brilliant job, I just did fiddly bits on the windows.  Luckily the weather was lovely.

We had the first workshop on Saturday, and everyone  has said they enjoyed the day and looking forward
to  more next year.

Here are a few of the cards we made on the Helidot workshop on Saturday.

I have a mini set out for Christmas which should be for sale online any day now..it has been designed to
work with  the other Christmas sets and mainly comprises large letters and Christmas words, as the above card shows.

All the cards are made using the Christmas sets, but I have used petit fleur for the mouse.

I will blog some more cards really soon using the new mini set.

Must close now as I have a class tonight, just thought I would show a little of the inside set up for this
evening. I am so excited!!

Biggin Hill show


Next Sunday is the Sincerely Yours Biggin Hill Show hope you will be able to come and look forward to seeing you there.

The workshop day in July is now full and I hope to be able to have another one about October time.

Been really busy just lately making all the samples for the new set, its going to be called 'All About Babies'
I have had so much fun doing the samples and it will be ready for the Craft Barn extravaganza on the 1st June. Its a bigger set with six sheets of peel off shapes and some lovely large text.  I will also be selling an accessory set to go with it so you can have everything you need to get started straight away.
I have designed some gorgeous papers in pale pink and pale blue along with coordinating plain papers.
These will be part of the accessory set, they will also be available to buy individually.

I will only be at the Craft Barn on the Saturday as on Sunday I am doing the Sincerely Yours show in Bracknell.

I have given you a really easy card to make below which uses the Petites Fleurs mini set......
All the flowers are made using the large (A) and small (B) petals and circles (I) and (J) from the sheet no1201 and the flowers either side are the mini flowers (S) on sheet 1203 with black dots for the centres from sheet no1202  I have used the text paper from the helidot range colour (BELLE) which is available to buy from our online shop and is now packed into 8 sheets 2 of each design priced at only £1.50. FREE P&P for limited period only.I have used some coordinating cardstock from Bazzill and some lovely jewels.

Watch out for our new range of pearls and jewels, coming soon,  which coordinate with the Helidot papers and enhance the designs.

Happy Easter


Happy Easter to you all, well its nearly over now and its still freezing cold... when will the weather get warmer?  I must apologise for not getting back sooner about the date for the workshop day but I have
now booked the hall for Saturday 6th July  If you are interested please contact me by E-Mail and I will give you all the details.

I have been busy with the new set which I have been so looking forward to producing it should be ready in
about 4-5 weeks, its a slightly larger set with patterned and plain papers that match exactly.
We are producing a booklet with step by step instructions to make it easy for you to follow, and there will also be plenty of inspiration in the centre of the book with lots of cards to make.
Craftwork cards are producing some lovely sentiments to compliment this set  which will be available to buy from our website soon.
Its all about Babies..... so cute!!!   I will give you a little taster really soon.

Below are some more cards I have made using the Petite Fleur set... The first card is the lamb... if you already have the set the lamb is made with the same shapes as the hanging basket (Q and W and X) also shape( AA) for ears and tail.  The other shapes are (S) the flowers.  Hope that helps.


The next card is also made using the Petite fleur set  a little bit more involved but still quite easy.
The rabbit is made using the shapes (M and O) for the head (L) is for the arms just by cutting in half lengthways. The dress is made by using (R) layered twice. The pocket and shoes are shape(T). The legs are the same as the sheep shape(W and X) The basket is made using the waste from the layered dress(R)
turned upside down and the collar on the dress is a flower (S) cut in half. The leaves are the small heart shape (U). and all the flowers are shape(S).  The large heart shape is a sissix die which is available from the Craft Barn at Priory Farm.All the papers I have used are from the Helidot range which are available from my web shop.

My next workshop will be on the 20th April at Lovingly Made in Felbridge it will be great to see you there.

Bee Happy and stay warm!!
