Hello blogsville,

I'm excited to finally share some handmade crafts for our upcoming wedding! 
[53 days and counting...]

I wanted to use my skill set to add that special touch to a few details in the wedding scheme, so far I've made my invitations, handmade custom decorations including a 3D guestbook and I have plenty more tricks up my sleeve...

It's in this very overdue post that i'd like to share my hand-embroidered table numbers! The 6" hoops have been sprayed gold, I freehand embroidered the numbers in coral and embellished with sparkly thread to make the numbers pop! I finished each hoop with gold and coral sequins and backed with white felt for a professional finish. 
[Note to self - hot glue guns and wine aren't a winning combination]

Here's the full collection together, shot by my very talented friend Nat, and some close ups to show the some of the detail. I hope you like, I can't reveal how I'm presenting them until the big day!

Keep your eyes peeled for more wedding spoilers!

Evening all!

Papercraft Essentials 130 goes on sale today, and I'm lucky enough to have featured in this fabulous issue! My challenge was to use the loved-up Pebbles Be Mine collection for everyday projects, although it's since served me well to make a special Valentine's card for my betrothed!

Featuring cute icons and bold patterned papers, this range has everything you need to make cards for loved-ones of all ages. Here's a sneak peek of the fun cards I made for this issue - including a mug-shaped card all about tea! [Always Yorkshire tea.]

I hope you like! <3

Evening all,

I was lucky enough to work with the Fancy Pants Designs Happy Place collection recently for Papercraft Essentials which was total bliss!

This collection has everything I look for in a papercrafting range - contrasting colours, contemporary icons, a mix of patterned papers and quirky sentiments! I didn't have to use much else having been given the full collection, I just used my reliable Washi to add a bit of bling... it's a must. 

This is just a sneak peek of the cards I made... I hope you like!

This is my favourite card! As the Happy Place range is quite scrapbook-orientated I thought that it would be lovely to incorporate a Polaroid pic of me and my best friend Zoë looking rather glam at a hour party!

Issue 129 of Papercraft Essentials is available now and comes with a free Dali die! And you can grab your copy here!
