Queen Bee


Hi everyone, for my Design Team post this week for Craft Consortium I have used the beautiful new paper pad called Tell The Bees. This pad is filled with so many wonderful designs with Bees and beautiful Flowers and also has stamps and ribbon in the collection.


My card today I have used Sizzix' honeycomb Die to the corners of my card to show my Glitter Card to give a real honeycomb look, I have added some Sizzix Wild Flowers and an accent of Bee Ribbon.


My centre frame was made with a mould and paper clay, once dry I coloured it with gold paint and highlighted with some Gilding Wax. My Bee was stamped onto Vellum and heat embossed, I then fussy cut two out for extra dimension and coloured with Copic Pens.

Please do check out Craft Consortium and follow them on Facebook and Instagram for regular inspiration and giveaways.

If you would also like to have the chance of becoming a Guest Designer with Craft Consortium and winning a pad of Gypsy Gypsy papers,  please share your craft projects with us by tagging Craft Consortium on Facebook or on Instagram at #ccmakes.

Be Happy


Hi everyone, today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing a card using the beautiful flower die called Black Eyed Susan. I love the dimension you can get with these flowers and they always look so pretty on a card.


My card has been made using Craft Consortium's paper pad called Wild Rose and measures approx 7.5 inches by 5 inches. 


I starting by cutting my layers and adding some stitching for a shabby feel and an extra touch of detail, mounting on my Concentric Circles Mesh.


My Stackers have both been placed on with foam strips adding them both on at different angles adding on my Be Happy sentiment.


My flowers I used a quilling tool to wind the centres and shaped them on my Embossing mat.

Kori Kumi Scrapbook


Hi everyone, today for my DT post with Craft Consortium I am at last able to share my scrapbook I made using Kori Kumi Phase One and the newly launched Phase Two. If you were luck enough to attend Paperworld in Frankfurt you may have seen my Scrapbook there. My book measures approx 11 x 11 inches.


I started by covering chipboard pages with my papers from the second collection, I used a mixture of Mod Podge and Cosmic Shimmer glue and weighted them down to dry. Next I sanded the edges to give a shabby feel.


 My shaker frames have been made by adding foam tape around the wooden photo frames and filling with sequins and seed beads.



My flowers have all been made using The Kori Kumi flower Dies.


Now I will just share lots of close up photos using embellishments from both collections.

Happy Easter


Hello and Happy Easter weekend to everyone, today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I have made a cute Easter card to share with you all. 

I used Maja Design papers on my card today which worked so well in creating my Easter Parade. My rabbits were so much fun to build up, I added cotton tails onto them and a drop of Black Liquid Pearls into the centre of their eyes.


My girl rabbit I also added a Diamanté onto her bow and a little lace onto the edge of her dress. I glued them in place with some Silicone Glue to add dimension mounting them onto my grass border, aren't they so cute.


My sun was layered twice and my banner was curled at the edges and mounted with Silicone Glue for dimension adding my Happy Easter sentiment.

Craft Consortium - Santoro Kori Kumi latest Collection

Hi everyone, for my DT post with Craft Consortium I am sharing a few craft projects with the newly launched Santoro Kori Kumi range. This new range has a complete collection of papers in 12x12, 8x8, 3D Decoupage, rubber stamps and a fabulous collection of embellishments from beautiful flower buttons, flocking powder, wooden characters and sequins to name but a few.


My first project shows how the previous collection combines beautifully with this new collection and uses and 12 x 12 paper and flower dies, pennant flags from the first collection.


I covered a chipboard frame and have added into the centre of my frame 3D Decoupage and papers from 12 x 12 collection, sequins and flower ribbons from this newest collection.


This card shows another image with 3D Decoupage and papers.


I have also used the amazing flocking powders that added texture to my clouds and trees, I love this product and apply it with Glossy accents.


This card shows how the 3D Decoupage can be mounted onto a complimenting topper and with a die cut frame and a touch of glitter you have an effective quick card.


On this card again I have combined both collections using 3D Decoupage, Doilies, Buttons, Raffia String and Washi Tape.


On this last card I have fussy cut my image and layered onto my paper with Silicone Glue, adding a wooden world embellishment from the collection which I coloured with Copic Pens, adding a flower button to her hair and flocking powder to the clouds. My die cut flowers are from Kori Kumi's first collection adding on my sweet buttons for extra detail.

Easter Egg Hunt


Hi everyone, today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I thought I would share some inspiration for an Easter card in a vintage design.


Cheery Lynn have many cute Easter Dies that embellish our crafty designs so well. My sweet little chicks were diecut from a yellow patterned cardstock and I coloured their beaks and feet with Copic Pens and added a touch of Black Liquid Pearls for their eyes.


My rabbit was also cut in patterned paper adding a fluffy cotton tail and some Liquid Pearls also to his eye.


My Stackers were all layered up in different shades of paper adding a little cheesecloth behind my image.

Tell the Bees


Hi everyone, Craft Consortium has launched a beautiful paper pad called Tell The Bees, it has the most exquisite patterns that I'm sure you will fall in love with. Please do check it out HERE.


I decided to take inspiration from the paper pad and make a honey pot using an old air freshener glass bottle and covering it in twine with a cork placed in the top.


I mounted it onto a card base adding moss and some small Daisies filled with Flowersoft in their centres.



My sign I used from the Kori Kumi range and I added some Crackle Paint for a distressed look adding the sentiment from my paper pad.


Now onto the fun part of fussy cutting out lots of Bees from one of the sheets of paper in the pad and adding them onto my Beehive.

Do check out Craft Consortium to see their vast range of stunning embellishments, paper pads and Decoupage papers on their web page and Facebook for inspiration and regular giveaways, you will also find them on Pinterest, Twitter and Instagram.

Special Moments


Hi everyone, today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing a card that is a fairly quick design to make using their Stacker Dies should you need a card at short notice.


I started by cutting out my mats and layers in coordinating papers from Maja Design then added a stamped sentiment onto my centre mat using Archival Ink.


My Daisies were shaped on my Embossing mat adding a Pearl into their centres, placing on my card with a few leaves and a heart chain for extra detail.


Thanks so much for stopping by today and for all the lovely comments you leave, it is so appreciated and I love reading them.

Hope you have a lovely weekend,

Crafty Hugs,
