Gardeners Notebook - Craft Consortium


Hi fellow crafters. Today for my Design Team post at Craft Consortium I have been playing with the beautiful Wildflower Meadow Paper Pad and Stamp sets making a little vintage garden note book.
I used Eileen Hull’s Passport Book die to make this. So let me show you my photos.


I covered Greyboard with papers from my Wildflower Meadow Pad gluing on both sides and once dry die cutting the shapes of the covers. I added ink to the edges and stamping on the corners.


My Greyboard for my spine was covered in Hessian on the outside and paper on the inside.
My Wildflower image also comes from a selection of toppers in the paper pad, diecutting it, inking and layering onto a few diecuts along with some cheesecloth.


On my inside covers I added a couple of pockets with some faux stitching at the edges, a touch of lace and a button. My insects were heat embossed with Wow Powders and coloured with Copic Pens.


I stamped some small faux seed packets and placed in the pockets.




I finished my book by adding more of the beautiful papers into my book along with some plain papers and fixed in place with Twine.

New Baby


Hi everyone, today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing a baby card using a couple of their Dies in the Whimsical range along with a selection of others.


You will notice I started tattering my layers of patterned paper adding onto my card with my Celtic Stacker die in-between. 


Next I added my pretty Doily layers and stamped sentiment. My Whimsical Giraffe I glued onto a pale green paper and fussy cut around.


My Whimsical Flower I cut out in pale green paper and layered my patterned flower on top twice which had been shaped on my Embossing mat to add dimension. Finishing with several gems on my card.

Backpack Adventures - Cherish The Memory


Hi everyone, today for my DT post with Cherish The Memory I have been having fun with their Ephemera and 3D Decoupage Sheets from Studio Light.


I started by cutting out my Spellbinders die from Becca Feeken in Kraft Card adding a layer of paper from the Memories of Summer pad to the background.


For my centre image I used the 3D Decoupage sheets layering with Silicone Glue and inking my layers at the edges. I added a mixture of media’s onto my flowers.


On my top layer I edged with a pretty lace for extra detail and added some more Ephemera die cuts and paper flowers.

I do hope you feel inspired to try a card similar to this using the Studio Light Collection.

Every Day of Your Life


Hi everyone, today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing some inspiration with their Cardmaker Dies. These are great Dies for putting a statement on your card especially if you need a card last minute for someone.


I started by matting my Cardmaker layer onto a layer of cardstock a few shades darker. Next I stamped my sentiment and mounted onto the same colour of card used in my background. This was then added onto my card with an accent of my Tag die behind and flourishes offset to the sides.


My flowers have been shaded with Distress Inks adding Flowersoft into the centres of the smaller ones and a sparkly gem into my Daisy.

Little Birdhouse


Hi everyone, today for my DT post with Craft Consortium I have been playing with a birdhouse from their MDF range and some of their beautiful Decoupage papers.


I started by adding some paint to all my outside edges that I didn’t want to cover with paper.
Next I added a layer of Mod Podge onto my MDF and placed the Decoupage Paper onto top. Once dry I sanded the edges for a neat finish and coated with a top layer of Mod Podge.


Craft Consortium has an amazing range of Decoupage papers to suit all styles of crafting. Do check them all out HERE.

Vintage Postcard


Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by today to see my DT post for Cherish The Memory. Their Etsy Shop has a lot of amazing new products just arrived form Studio Light and today I have been creating with the new Memories of Summer Collection.



My card today uses one of the beautiful 6 x 6 papers. I used the Hemstitch Rectangles from Becca Feeken to add a little detail onto the paper and to bring your eye to focus on my 3d Decoupage in the centre. Adding a couple of flowers and a postage stamp from the Ephemera sheets. I love how my card has a vintage postcard look to it.

The Songbird


Hi everyone, today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing a vintage styled card using some papers I picked up recently at a car boot sale, along with a few other bargains.


I started by tattering edges of my base layer and heat embossed some gold powder onto the edges. Adding layers with coordinating papers, a little cheesecloth for a shabby look and my bird with embossing powder also at the edges.


My flowers were all cut out from coordinating papers and shaped on my Embossing mat and stamens added into the centres. I then arranged my floral arrangement onto my card along with leaves and flourishes.

Follow Your Dreams - Cherish The Memory



Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by today to see my DT post for Cherish The Memory. Their Etsy Shop has a lot of amazing new products just arrived from Studio Light and today I have been creating with the new Memories of Summer Collection.


I decided to make a journal book using my 6 x 6 paper pad and some of the Ephemera sheets. Which would equally look lovely used on cards and scrapbook layouts.


I started by gluing papers onto my Greyboard and diecutting out my shapes using Eileen Hulls Passport Die. I added Embossing Powder to the edges and glued some of the Ephemera from the Memories of Summer Sheets onto the covers, also adding some small gold star sequins for a touch of sparkle.


I glued my Hessian strip onto Greyboard with Mod Podge and once dry also die cut. My pages were die cut out adding some Ephemera die cuts and attaching in place with some garden string.

My Rainbow


Hi everyone, for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs this week I challenged myself to make a clean and simple styled card. This is something I find very hard to do as I always want to add more details within my design. So I guess this is probably as minimalistic as I can manage and I hope you like it and feel inspired to also step out of your comfort zone too.


I started by die cutting my smallest square in my stitched stackers in colours of the rainbow to compliment my stamped sentiment, adding my small Doily which was cut in half and placed in the centre.


My next layers were all added with foam strips for added dimension along with a few flowers to sit on my cloud. Adding a final touch of some squiggly lines around the edge of my card.

Happy Anniversary


Hi everyone, today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing some inspiration using one of our Cardmaker Dies. I love the elegance and impact these give to a card especially if you need to make a card quickly.


I started by die cutting my Cardmaker die in Gold Mirri Card and in White Cardstock. I then offset my layers making sure I had an even aperture around the edges. I then layered onto my card with foam strips for added dimension.


Happy Anniversay was stamped and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. I added extra touches of detail layering my Tags#2 flourish dies around the edges of my middle layers and adding on some gems.

A Birthday Recipe


Hi everyone, today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I have been having fun with the cute Cozy Kitchen Die set from their new Retro release on my Birthday Card.


I started by matting and layering my base layers together, tattering the edges of my Stitched Stackers and adding some accents of lace for a vintage feel, gluing in place with foam strips for dimension.


My sentiment has been stamped onto patterned Maja Design paper and I paper pieced sections of my Doily to form a frame. Adding some die cut buttons which have a little thread in the centres.


My apron I added a touch of coordinating lace around the hem and a little Silicone Glue in the pocket to help give dimension and placed the mixing spoons in it. My food mixer I added a cute little heart that can also be placed onto the apron.

Wildflower Meadow Gift Bags


Hi everyone, thanks so much for stopping by today to see my DT post for Craft Consortium whilst I take a break from social media. Your visits are always so appreciated and I hope to be back following all your Social posts in the next few weeks.

I have used the exquisite papers and toppers from our latest released pad Wildflower Meadow and if you are a nature or flower lover this pad is definitely for you.


I used the die from my Tonic Craft Club Kit 9 to make these bags and think it’s a perfect combination with these papers to give someone a small gift, this is a photo of the back and sides of the bags.


I added a little Distress ink and Stickles onto my edges to give a vintage feel.


I die cut my topper layering onto a die-cut Doily, both from Cheery Lynn adding a little Stickles into the centre of my flowers to give them a sparkle.


Also adding some stamped sentiment tags and a few 3D flowers to finish.
