Making Shaped Cards With Creative Dies Plus

I've been making lots of cards this week. Article work has been keeping me busy but I have also had the opportunity to try out the Creative Dies Plus Stitched and Pierced nesting dies from Craft Stash. Have you seen these dies? I'm not sure how long they have been on the market for but they were new to me and it's…

VIDEO: DIY Logan / Wolverine Inspired Birthday Card

I've mentioned before that we are pretty keen on comic books and graphic novels in my household so today's project video is a total geek-out homage to the new Logan film coming out in the cinemas around the world this week. It's a DIY how-to for making a Logan / Wolverine inspired Birthday Card. I totally wish I could claim to having…


Simple Circles For Card Making

Friday was card making with triangles, so Mondays is using circles! And you guys know how much I love circles! Circles everywhere; in my Instagram feed, on my YouTube channel, they have even gotten into a sneak peek at some up and coming products for my PaperArtsy range. What's that? New stamps?...well maybe! You will just have to wait and see, or…


Geometric Designs For Card Making

So I don't think I am over geometric shapes yet! Actually I don't think I will ever be over them particularly in my card making!

Another Birthday Card Design For Men

If you happened by my blog last Monday I shared a male cards in my 'Die-cut Cards for Men' blog post, as well as my general anxiety about calling things either male or female! This week I have another share from the same set of cards that I made for a commission earlier in the year. It is also a male card, and I…


Die-cut Cards For Men

I often um and ah about labelling my card designs specifically for men or women. Cardmakers often talk about cards for men or cards for women, but I try to be a bit nebulous about it, if I can, when I share my makes. Because, well, I will be honest, I often LOVE cards that have supposedly been made with men in…
