A special Valentines Card

Inside of Card…..some thoughts & tips!

It’s fun to offset one colour on top of the other when stamping!
Adding that Gold Glitter Tape is easy and adds beauty to the inside of the card.
Consider stamping sentiment and then mounting it on an offcut of paper for a special look.
The Happy Valentines Day saying was encased in a wreath on the stamp pack; don’t be afraid to chop up your stamps for more versatility!
Edge your finished inside piece with ink before adhering it to your card!

Book Cards



Hi there everyone!
I am so lucky to have the opportunity to show you how to make these wonderful cards – beautiful on the front and explosive inside!

They never fail to impress and if you follow my video, (you will find the link at the end of this post) I am sure you will absolutely love making them……
go on, have a go!

For my first card, I have used the lovely palette of soft greens, blues and yellow …..  #ME Collection.

This is the front of the book card decorated with papers from the #Me collection. The Damask Border is a glorious decorative die just released by Kaisercraft, I have cut two out and stuck them on top of each other to create extra depth and dimension.

This is the ‘explosive’ inside! As you open it up, it pops out just like a book … hence it’s name. Did you spot that sparkly glitter tape that I put down the sides …  just beautiful!

For my second card I have used the subtle colour palette of the ‘True Love’ collection for a very special Valentines Day Card.

This beautiful picture was cut from P2032 Patterned Paper, it was so very pretty that I did not need to do much. The addition of some tulle, a fancy pin, some sequins and flower added dimension.

Best Wishes Pop Up Card


The new pop up words for cards are really awesome and are such a surprise when the recipient opens the card. Of course they are in awe and wonder how on earth you were so clever.

” How did you do that?” Shhhh our secret!!

Unfold the packaging for instructions on how to make the super easy pop up!

Window card


I had a bit of Big Shot fun today and used a few of the latest Kaisercraft dies on this window card.

One of my favourite embellishments are the shirt pins with pearl ends, I love to load them up with co-ordinating beards and pop on some ribbon....pretty don't you think?

'Z' Fold card


This is such a beautiful card making collection!

I do love to create with the 6 1/2″ paper pads….all the same great scrapbooking designs……..just smaller; perfect proportions for cards! I know that whatever I throw together works because the colours and tones all compliment each other!

Did you spot that gold glitter tape? So versatile and just what you need to add when you need it needs something! There is an awesome colour range to choose from.

My eldest just HATES having his picture taken – a scrapers worst nightmare….right?
Well, when I can get a sneaky pic, it is always amazing! I love this one, my son looks so relaxed, totally unaware I am zooming in with my camera.  This page will be cherished because I really do have so few pictures of my wonderful son!
