Triple Heart Easel Card

This lovely easel card has three hearts stacked on top of one another for a lovely dimensional card which will fold flat and fit into a standard envelope.

The colours are Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Basic Grey and Crumb Cake.

The stamps used are from the Hearts A Flutter set and the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Handbag Gift Bag Tutorial

Gift Bag Tutorial Video

I have had a few requests for a tutorial for the Handbag gift Bags.

Handbags made from paper

I have been very lucky recently to get my own dedicated crafting room, rather than commandeering the dining room. The new set up now makes it much easier for me to make videos, Yay!

So I have a video tutorial on how to make these lovely gift bags.

They're very easy to do and lots of fun. Hope you enjoy making your own.

Feeling Very Stupid

I am having a blond day today.

I'm still not very good at this blogging carry on and I was messing around in my account this afternoon and I have somehow managed to


I thought I was deleting the messages I had telling me I had a comment on my post.

Now I feel very silly, I had lots of great comments from lovely people and now I have none.

Let this be a lesson not to mess around with stuff when you have no idea what you're doing.
