Home Decor Tropical Hangings


Hi everyone. today for my Design Team post at Craft Consortium I have been playing with the new Tropical Paradise Paper Pad from the Essentials Collection. It’s full of fun images of Tropical Birds and pretty flowers and foliage.


The parrots I thought would look great sitting on a twine hoop. Using my circle die I cut out with cereal packet approximately 4 inch circles and wrapped my twine around them.


Fussy cutting my birds adding some diecut foliage and flowers. They now look great hanging on my craft tree in my craftroom.

Tonic Studios - Concertina Dies



Hi everyone, I can finally share some amazing news with you all. I was recently contacted by Tonic Studios asking if I would like to share some inspiration using their newly launched Concertina dies, so of course I said YES.

These will be released on Create and Craft  today (Monday the 24th) at 10am and 3pm or alternatively at Create and Craft's website on catch up TV. I had so much fun with these Dies and can see a lot of potential in 3D designs with them.

This is the first of my makes which also uses Tonic Craft Perfect paper.




My second project I have made a small memory box, ideal for filing photographs or ephemera in.




My third project is a letter/memo rack using Craft Consortiums Herbarium and Wood Effects Papers. I remember my gran having a letter rack made of wood similar to this in design which gave me the idea to making this using the Concertina die.




Please do check out Tonic Studios on Facebook and Instagram to see all the inspiration from the team using these Dies.

The Potting Shed



Hi everyone, today for my design team post at Craft Consortium I am excited to share an up-cycling project using wooden packaging that contained a sauce bottle from Christmas time.



I started by adding some brown paint to all the edges of my box and then measured sections of paper from our Wood Textures pad and cut to size. Onto all these sections I stamped on my flowers and foliage.


My watering can was stamped and fussy cut out adding my stamped caterpillar and a little glossy accents to it. My flowers and butterfly I added a decoupaged layer for extra dimension. My spade is cut from the Metal Textures Pad for the handle and the base part was cut from cereal box and coloured with a silver Promarker finishing off with some Distress Powder to look like soil.


My plant pots have been cut again from the Metal Textures Pad and using the Stamp Set from The Herbarium Collection I stamped onto coffee stirrers. I filled with fussy cut foliage from The Herbarium Pad adding my gardening tools and some 3D moss for modelling.


My table was made from the Wood Textures Pad adding some more Distress Powder for soil, die cut gloves and metal embellishments also from The Herbarium Collection.


The windows were die cut again from the Wood Textures Pad adding some Satin Miri card behind them. My cat was die cut using the metal textures pad adding a shadow layer of dark grey behind it.


My roof was cut into rectangles from the Metal Textures Pad, inked at the edges and added on the roof to look like quarry tiles.

Some more photos to look at.

Altered Notebook for Craft Consortium



Hi everyone, today for my Design Team post at Craft Consortium I have made a cover for a small notebook using papers from The Herbarium Paper Pad and The Vintage Emporium Paper Pad.


I added some squiggly lines around the outside of my base layer of paper which is from The Herbarium Paper Pad to draw the eye into my design. Using the Vintage Emporium Paper Pad I diecut my  tag adding some lace onto it and fussy cut all my Ephemera inking and tattering at the edges.
