Back To School

Hi there this is my 2nd blog of the day, i'm still in shock that i've managed two lol...
I have made this little card just for a challenge over at

Items used:
Lotv stamp

Wellington tag and stamp
Vintage ribbon 
Wooden Ladybird

Challenges Entered Into:


Hello and welcome once again...
Thanks so much for taking the time to pop by.
Today's post is my DT card for
Items used:
Distress ink Tea Due, Antique Linen and Barn Door
Versamark ink pad
Clear Embossing powder
Crafters Companion paper
Cream Webbing
Sue Wilson Ribbon
Cream braid
Square Gem
Kraft Card.

A few little tips for new stampers
To get the shiny button on the backing paper is really easy to do, all you have to do is stamp the little button stamp in the set with the Versamark ink pad and then add clear embossing powder and heat it up which then gives you a raised shiny button. To get the 3 mannequins in a row all you have to do is stamp then mannequin onto a large post it note and cut it out then put it in on the backing paper where you want the center mannequin to be which is called masking, take a brown ink pad and stamp the mannequin to both sides of the post in note, then remove the post it note and add your clear embossed kraft card mannequin which has been rasied with foam pads that then means the center mannequin stands out from the other two. 

I have a great idea for this stamp set so please look out for it.
I also have a great give away coming in the next few days.

A little bit of Docrafts

Hello all firsty let me thank you for popping by it really does mean alot. Also let me apologise for not posting for a little while but things have been hetic here with builders and getting a new part time job which has been full time for the last two weeks, its to fund my craft addiction lol. 
I have had some exciting news also that for the next 6 months i'm so lucky to be part of the Design Team for Docrafts Creativity Members club. I'm so very excited and have also received my first package of goodies to get started......
Today i'm going to share with you two cards the 1st is made from Docrafts free dowloads for craft members, as members we get so many extra's and we also get a daily sketch to give us inspiration which really helps if you get stuck, but they are also great to follow, a little tip I have is to print them out and store them in a folder to look back at, thats what I do with mine.
This was made using the Tea Party download and the layout was from one of the daily sketches.
Items used.... Tea party Docrafts free download, papermania gems 5 large shimmer dome dots, kraft card and creamy brown ink pad.

The 2nd is from Docrafts digital designer.
This was made using Docrafts Portobello Road Digital Designer dvd rom, papermania black card, papermania black star gems and some ribbon from my crafty stash.
I really would be lost without my Digital Design Disc's as they are packed with so many great items to print, which means i'm never stuck looking for papers as I can just print them as i need them.
Head on over to
 and take a look around as there are so many great items to give you some exciting inspiration.
