What a Cracker


Hi everyone, today for my DT post at Cherish The Memory I have been playing with the gorgeous Mintay papers and Ephemera sheets that are now stocked in their Etsy Shop.


I started by die cutting out my Christmas Crackers using my Tonic Die. Next I matted and layered my Mintay papers onto my Crackers adding some ink to the edges of my layers and a little sparkle from a glitter pen.


My front images were layered onto die cut snowflakes adding a Metal Charm and glittered twine.


Finishing with some pretty ribbon and lace at the edges of my crackers.

Do stop by at Cherish The Memory to see their wonderful range of Mintay and Studio Light Products. Links you maybe interested in.....

Memories Captured - Craft Consortium


Hi fellow bloggers and thanks for stopping by. Craft Consortium have launched a new range of paper pads called Essential Pads and they certainly are when you see them. I have been playing with two of these pads called Wood Textures and Vintage Emporium which are amazing.


Today I have been using both these pads on my latest 3D project. I have made a couple of these photo cubes in the past, one which has photographs of myself as a child on them which you may remember. They are fun to make and with all the amazing photographs in the Vintage Emporium Pad I knew I just had to make another one.


This one is made slightly different as I bought a pack of 4 wooden drinks mats to form my cube adding a square of chipboard onto the top and bottom. Next I edged all my corners with Washi Tape to help strengthen and give a neat edge. My dark brown papers are from the Woodgrain Textures Pad and were tattered at the edges and some brown ink added to them and glued in place all around my cube.


My newspaper styled paper and photographs are all in the Vintage Emporium Pad. I built Matt and layers onto my photographs using my Wood Textures Pad, tattering and inking the edges. These were then layered onto cheesecloth and doilies to add more vintage touches.


Finishing with lots of pearls, inked flowers, butterflies and embellishments from the Always and Forever Collection.

Frosty Moments



Hi everyone. Today for my DT post at Cherish The Memory I have been playing with a selection of the Studio Light Pads and Decoupage Sheets available in their Etsy Shop.


After making several Festive cards I had a collection of elements left over and thought it would be fun to mix them up a bit. My rabbit and Christmas baubles I built up in the decoupaged layers and added some snow, glass glitter and some fine glitter for lots of sparkle.


I mounted onto some glitter card for more sparkle and dark coloured card to help my design all pop.


Please do check out all the fabulous crafty goodness at Cherish The Memory Etsy Shop, they have an amazing range of Studio Light and also the fabulous newly released paper collection from Mintay.

Little Fawn Christmas Baubles - Craft Consortium


Hi Everyone, for my DT post with Craft Consortium I have been playing with Christmas Baubles from their MDF range which also come with a handy Christmas stencil.


I decided to use the latest paper pad on my Baubles called Little Fawn and Friends which is every bit as beautiful as all their other pads.


I started by fussy cutting out all the images I wanted to layer onto my Baubles.  I sprinkled some chunky white Embossing powder onto my trees and heat set for a wintry feel and edged my animals with a little distress ink.


I then gave my Baubles a coat of Gesso and once dry I applied a layer of Decoupage Paper onto both sides with Mod Podge Matt. Once dry I sanded my edges to make it nice and neat and added a layer of Mod Podge Sparkle for a glistening effect. I added some metallic Embossing powder at the top of the Baubles heat setting in place and rubbed some Rose Gold Gilding Wax over the surface and around the edges for a metallic feel.


Now onto the fun part of layering up all my elements with Silicone Glue to create small scenes.


Finishing them off with glitter ribbon and these exquisite little pine cones, along with lots of sparkly glass glitter.

Oh Christmas Tree - Craft Consortium


Hi everyone, today for my DT post at Craft Consortium I have been playing with another of their newly launched MDF products.



I started by adding a layer of Embossing paste through a stencil onto all sides of my tree and once dry added a couple of layers of Acrylic paint. I then highlighted my stencilling and the edges of the tree with some Gilding Wax and finished with lots of red berries using Nuvo Drops.



On my base I added a layer of Decoupage paper and some Mod Podge Sparkle onto my top Layer. I added small felt circles into my Candle bases and some Glitter Ribbon around the edges.

I finished by adding a floral arrangement and lots of sparkly snowflakes with Rhinestones in the centres.

Summer Memories Treasure Box


Hi everyone, today for my DT post at Cherish The Memory I decorated a small Balsawood box using the beautiful Studio Light Collection Memories of Summer.



I started by adding some brown chalk paint to all the edges. Once dry I added layers of paper from my 6x6 pad onto my box.


On the top of the lid and inside lid I collaged papers from the Ephemera Sheets sealing everything in place with a layer of Mod Podge Matt.


Once dry I added a layer of felt onto the inner and outer base parts of my box. Finishing with a pretty pearl and diamante gem from Craft Consortium and Stickles for a touch of glamour.

Happy Birthday


Hi everyone, today for my DT post at Cheery Lynn Designs I’m sharing some inspiration using one of their gorgeous Stacker Dies which I just adore. It’s such a beautiful design at the edges that gives any style of card an elegant touch.



I started by die cutting my Stacker Dies in white cardstock and tattered my patterned layers of papers at the edges. I layered onto my card with foam strips for extra dimension.


My flowers were shaped on my Embossing mat adding ink into the centres and a gem. I arranged on my card with some leaves.
