Lantern with multi colour tea light Inside

I decided to take the plunge and buy a usb for my Scan and Cut It Is called The Paper Pantry Cutting files Volume II usb key. I loved this Lantern I manage to fit all the piece onto one sheet of  black 12 x 12 card this was good for me seeing as I haven't really played with my scan and cut I have had It five years and very rarely used It. I then cut my vellum panels but found I could have got the Scan and Cut to do this too. It's not perfect but I am really pleased. I found a coloured Tea lighter which I find goes great inside.

Love You Card

I really enjoyed playing with my Tim Holtz goodies that I got for Christmas.

I have taken a base card black 6x6 I then took a piece of red glitter card and placed my Failing hearts die on it I then took a scrap piece of black and light biscuit colour card and die cut my type writter . I then took a scrap piece of gret card and stamp Love you three times and fed it though my die so it looks like it's been typed. Really happy with how this card turned out.

 Hello there I hope your new year has started well? Mine was ok and work is still busy and now we have a further lock down everyone is going to start shopping online again so the parcels are going to start to increase again.

I also think I have lost my mojo with work work and work by time I get home I just want to chill out do nothing sometimes tea is an effort to make.

I have decided to give myself a year to organise all my craft goodies and I am also going to sell a lot and some I will give away as I just have to much and I have products that I am never going to get round to using and some I will not use as I have decided those crafts are not for me.

So I guess I am giving myself some time out I blog nearly 2 or 3 times a week and feel no one is interested as I don't get many comments I have been doing You Tube every Sunday for the last few months but again not many comments so yes I feel my ego has taken a battering so I am going to cut them down too I will do one here and there same with my blog.

So thank you If you have taken the time to visit my blog and You Tube maybe see you in the future.

Take care stay safe and lastly happy crafting

Happy New Year


Happy New Year everyone let hope it is better than 2020.

I have made this card using my free stamp set again from the Simply cards and papercrafts magazine 212.

I took a black A6 base card and then a white mat slightly smaller to leave a nice black edge. I have then used my stamp and stamped all over in different colours. I did stamp my Happy New Year in the middle first. I then decided to add some sparkle using gems in the middle of my stamped images.

A very quick and easy card.
