Two New Christmas Designs


This template is for a Snowglobe shaped card and it's just the basic card so that you can decorate it with your own embellishments, stamps etc. I made the little scene on mine using some digikits and decorated the base with some peel off borders.

For this card the Christmas word pops out from the top fold of the card while the Wishes word and the diamond pattern are cut out so that the backing paper shows through.

You can find the templates here on my website

Doily Card

I have seen lots of cards lately with doilies on them so though I would have a go at making a simple one of my own and have used it to make this card along with a few embellishments. Makes a change from doing Christmas cards !!

The template is available  here on my website. Thanks for looking.

This is another Christmas Card that I finished yesterday - as you can probably guess I'm a cat lover although my own little cat has had to have a visit to the vet as he is a bit under the weather at the moment.

Candles Aperture Card

I love candles especially at Christmas so decided to use them as the theme for this card. Although it doesn't show up much in the photo I put sparkle on the flames and it looks really effective. I made use of the poinsettias to design a co-ordinating backing paper.

The template is available here on my website. Thanks for looking

Let it Snow Diorama Card

My diorama cards have been quite popular so I thought I would do another one for this Christmas. Similar theme to the In the Snow card but it looks really good with the 3D  dimension and it has the benefit of folding flat for posting.
If you'd like to look the template is available here - assembly instructions and sky backing paper are included

Holly Flourish Freebie

Hi everyone, been really busy lately so my blog has been neglected a bit. If anyone is interested in what I have been doing for the Silhouette UK Design Team you can see some photos here of what we have all been up to.The team consists of me, Dot, Maggie, Maria and Debbie along with Karine from Graphtec GB who is our lovely leader. The projects we made had Wedding and Baby themes and the Silhouette products we used were Sketch Pens, Kraft card, Printable Canvas and Chipboard along with some of the tools available in the Designer Edition of the Silhouette software such as the fancy edge knife tools, sketch  designs and rhinestones .

Anyway I decided it's time to start doing some stuff for Christmas and thought I would share this Holly Flourish with you.

Buttefly Easel Card

Hi everyone and welcome to my new followers. I know it's ages since I posted anything but I have been really busy since I got back from my holidays. I don't normally make cards to sell but a neighbour asked me to make an exception and   do some Wedding Invitations which were needed at short notice so I have had to concentrate on those plus doing some stuff for the Silhouette Design Team. Anyway this is an Easel Card I have just finished so I though I would show it to you so you know I'm still alive and kicking - hope you like it !!

Exciting News and a Freebie

It seems ages since I posted anything but something exciting has happened that has kept me a bit busy. I have been asked to join the Design Team at Silhouette UK so I get the chance to try out new products and make things for their shows on Create & Craft TV - the next one is on 14th September. It's all been a bit of a rush as I'm away on holiday tomorrow for 2 weeks which is why my Blog has been neglected. Anyway I've got my projects done and posted and after my hols I will post some photos of them. I have managed to do a quick freebie, this one is a pop up for the inside of a card so I hope you like it.

Friday Freebie - Cut out flowers card


I got the idea for this card from a magazine. It's a very economical card as it uses the postive and negative parts of the template and is also very quick and easy to put together.

Here's how to assemble it

If you use this template I would appreciate if you would take a moment to leave me a comment as it makes sharing more worthwhile if I know the templates are useful.

Ice Cream Freebie

First of all I'd like to say a big thank you to those who left comments for me recently - It's lovely to see so many and I really do appreciate every one.

Seeing as the weather is so hot here in the UK I thought this ice cream cone might be appropriate. Hope you like it. For Cameo/Portrait users you can either do it as paper piecing or fill the shapes with colour and do it as a print and cut.

Rose Cutout Freebie Card

I did promise another freebie file this week but the beautiful weather we have been having has distracted me - much too nice to be indoors !! Anyway I hope you like this card. It looked a little plain with just the label embellishment so I decided to do a separate panel for the front which I could emboss and I'm quite pleased with the result. Hope you like it.

Bride Card

Seems ages since I made a card but this was a special request. I used one of my embossing folders for the dress to give it a bit of texture.

Filigree Border Card Freebie

This week's freebie features a border edge. I decided to do white on white with a coloured insert to show through the border. I used one of my embossing folders to make a panel for the front then decorated with some butterflies from my stash. Hope you like it and will find a use for it. A quick update on my kitchen, all the building work and decorating is finished now so tomorrow they start installing the new kitchen - can't wait !!

Banner Freebie

A very quick freebie this week but I hope you will find it useful as banners seem quite popular at the moment. I anticipated being able to spend a lot of time crafting this week while work is being done on our new kitchen but it's not quite worked out that way as they are doing a lot of rewiring which means they have to keep turning the power off so I can't use my PC or Cameo. I have tried using my laptop to do some new designs but i find the screen is just not big enough and it gives me eye strain - I guess I'm just used to my PC which has a huge screen.

Here's how I used the banner on a card

Watch Aperture Card

A male card suitable for Birthday or Fathers Day.

Linked Circles Card

Not had a lot of time for crafting as we are having a new kitchen installed over the next couple of weeks so have had to spend time clearing everything out of the old one. It's amazing how much stuff you find tucked away in cupboards that you haven't used for years. I have been really ruthless and sent loads to one of our local Charity shops. I think I shall be marooned in my Craft Room next week out of the workmen's way so - and I know it's only June - but I might think about starting some Christmas cards !! Anyway here is a new design that I did manage to do this week - hope you like it.

Flowers & Butterflies Backing Papers Freebie

Hi Everyone - hope you are all looking forward to the weekend. The weather is lovely here at the moment, just hope it lasts for a few days.  I made these backing papers some time ago but it just sums up today's lovely weather so I thought I would share them with you. Thanks to all of you who left comments on my previous freebies - I do like to read them.  It's so  nice to get the feedback and it is much appreciated.

Butterfly & Flower Border Freebie

Hi Everyone

Another freebie border for you. The size measures 4" or just over 10 cms wide but it can easily be resized to make it bigger. I have used it on this card which I did in Craft Artist using a kit called Mother's Day.  If anyone is wondering why there is no studio format to download it's because the terms and conditions of Silhouette America no longer permit this as they own the copyright of the studio format. It's not a problem though as gsd files can be used with Silhouette machines and if you have the Designer Edition of the Studio software then you also have the option of using svg format as well.

4 New Cards

Hi everyone and welcome to my new followers. Arrived back from holiday on Friday and although the weather could have been warmer we still had a lovely time in Northumberland. There are some really beautiful unspoilt beaches up there and although it wasn't warm enough for sunbathing we had some lovely walks. Visited lots of National Trust and English Heritage places so the days really flew by.

I had the day to myself today and these are the new templates I have designed. Hope you like them.




The templates are available on my website
