Stencil Madness

Stencils are one of my favourite products to use as they are so versatile. They can be used as embossing folders, stamps, die cuts and just stencils! In this post I even created my own stencil from a cut file, as I wanted to join in the Stencil challenge over at Winnie & Walter's 3rd birthday bash … Continue reading Stencil Madness

Book Marks

My sis posted a book club thingy on Facebook the other day. If you liked her post, you send your favourite book to someone she lists and you in turn get books from stangers around the world! I sent someone "The Four Agreements". Its one of my favourite books and I wish I had discovered it … Continue reading Book Marks

To Have and to Hold

When it was certain that we were moving here from France, three years ago, I started gathering info on Ulm, the little city in the South of Germany where we would be moving to. During my on-line research, I met some wonderful people who spent time giving me information on the city, places to live … Continue reading To Have and to Hold

Mass production

Another good friend of mine is leaving Ulm as part of the yearly "migration"cycle that we expats go through. I had already made her a farewell card and a digital photo album of their 3 years here, but I decided to make her a bunch of cards she wanted to give to her customers in … Continue reading Mass production

Sending you Sunshine!

Yes we can finally say that from Germany, in the south anyway! After a rainy start, we now have sunny 30ºC temperatures. Luckily I have the forest in front of our house to shelter me during my daily walks with the dogs. Its so green and cool in there and with the birds singing their … Continue reading Sending you Sunshine!

Apart from the fact that its simply beautiful, its also very versatile. Here I've shown 3 ways you can use this die. The 1st … Continue reading Turning negative to positive

Pastel colours

Pastels are not my favourite type of colours, which is exactly why I had to try and make a card when the challenges over at Less Is More and Pinterest Inspired asked for cards with pastel shades on it! I just love a to try something new! I used Balzer Designs “mini bubble doily” stencil to … Continue reading Pastel colours

Strong Women

I spent Mother's Day today making cards with my kids! It was really such a nice way to pass the day, teaching them to die cut with my Big Shot, stamping and adding embossing powders to heat emboss their sentiments! They learnt so quickly and really amazed me, especially with their stamping. I remember I … Continue reading Strong Women

Squircle Clean & Simple, not so simple

Today I decided to make  a birthday card for a boy, so I couldn't put butterflies or hearts or flowers on it...stereotype I know, cause he might have liked the butterflies, hearts and flowers! I could have just added a photo of of him and make it the central point but why do easy when … Continue reading Squircle Clean & Simple, not so simple

Colouring creatures

I just received these stamps from Katzelcraft, who are a French stamp making company, and having lived 23 years in France, I wanted to support their products. Their "Les Piafs" bird set look quite similar to Tim Holtz's "Crazy birds" and as it seemed cheaper too, I ordered them. As soon as I got them, I regretted … Continue reading Colouring creatures
