Evening all,

It's been a while, which i regret!

Apparently June is a very busy month for occasions, i've spent most of my time trying to create unique gifts and presents for loved ones and very little time experimenting with my own 'stuff'.

Lovely Stephanie owner of Clearly Besotted was kind enough to send me a fab new stamp set from her Summer releases which helped me get my mojo back!

The Let's Roll stamp set is perfect for so many occasions, and I couldn't resist using this unique sentiment! The card is a mix of odds and sods, including hand-cut grass! I hope you like it!

You can find this adorable stamp set here!

Good evening one and all,

I'm delighted to report that i'm part of the brand-new Apple Blossom Craft Collection design team!

Apple Blossom Craft Collection is an exclusive new range from a UK design team who's designs are intricate, luxurious and afordable. These high-quality die sets feature a variety of elegant motifs, borders and frames, perfect for adding that finishing touch!

I was lucky enough to play with the brand-new bird die which is fab, i don't usually like big dies but this one has so much versatility, it can easily be paper-pieced or cut down to suit different themes and occasions. This die set consists of three separate dies, the birds and foliage, a circular die and a frame.

Here's the Thank You card i made, i hope you like it!
You can grab this fabulous bird die here :)

Keep your eyes peeled for brand-new and exclusive Apple Blossom dies on the CraftStash website!

Evening all,

Well, its official - summertime!

I can't believe it's already June, this time last year we were moving House from Preston to Manchester. This will be the first place we've stayed for over a year! Frankly, i'm glad because i hate the stress of moving.

That said, my crafty pal Betty is moving into a fab new pad in the center of Manchester and i couldn't-not make her a little something as a housewarming gift! It's always tough creating a handmade project for a fellow crafter, especially as Betty is quite the sewer - www.makeitbetty.com/

I created the applique letters by backing fabric with Stick-It sheets and die-cutting with Xcut letter dies, the rest of the wording was hand-stitched with a thick red thread. Extreme close-up!

I'm happy to report that Betty loves it... i hope you do too!
