3D projects, cards, Christmas, Classes, Personal Ramblings, Stampin' Up!, Videos


It’s been another busy year of crafting here. Thanks for following me along.

I thought I would take a few minutes and share my favourite projects from the past year. So come on a little journey with me. And click on the heading of the project to take you back to the original post and read more about them. Even catch the video of many of them.

Friendly Hello Fun Fold

I loved this gorgeous Friendly Hello Paper available for Sale-A-Bration in January. And this is great fold to show both sides of the gorgeous paper. (Must try that again).

Driving By Slider Card

This was a great stamp set to create a Slider card. But you can try this with any of your stamps. What about that Sunshine and Rainbows paper. So bright and Happy. 🙂

Waves of Inspiration (Moon Effect)

I have loved creating with the Waves of Inspiration stamp set and I was so excited when I discovered how to create the moon effect with the stamps.

Half Fold Let’s Set Sail

Let’s face it – Male cards are hard to make aren’t they?? We had a great Masculine Cards Class earlier in the year. The Let’s Set Sail stamps and punch were fun to use.

Wild and Sweet Watercolouring

The Wild and Sweet Stamp set was one of my top picks from the new catalogue in May. I don’t do a lot of colouring but I loved colouring this cute Koala. I shared some tips colouring this image in the video for this card.

Tunnel Cards with Hues of Happiness

The Hues of Happiness was another of my top picks from the catalogue. I think many people also loved this suite. The Tunnel cards I created with this has been very popular.

Winter Crafternoon with Cup of Tea Bundle

The most popular event this year with the Winter Crafternoon. It was such a fun time crafting together followed by a Devonshire Tea. Watch out for more events in the new year.

A Pocket Card with Cup of Tea Bundle

Christmas Lights Diagonal Fold

Another very popular Fun Fold from this year was the Diagonal Fold Card with the Christmas Lights Bundle. Lots of people have shared their versions with me which has been so great.

Hello Hippest Hippos Half Fold Easel Card

Is there a theme here with Fun Folds that are my favourite projects for the year. I do love a Fun Fold card. This one was the Half Fold Easel Card with the Hippest Hippos Stamp set for Sale-A-Bration.

Adventurous Journey for the adventurer

Another great stamp set for the Male cards or the adventurer is the Adventurous Journey stamp set. We had a great class with this stamp set.

Merriest Moments Candle for the 12 Days of Christmas series

It was great to be part of a collaboration to share you some fantastic Christmas projects. I kicked the 12 days series off with my project, A candle with the Merriest Moments stamps and dies. You just have to go back to that post and start the 12 Days of Christmas to check out all the projects.

I hope you have enjoyed looking back at these projects. I can’t wait to share more with you in the coming year.

To lots of creating in 2022. Come and join in with me and follow along.

cards, Masculine


Some simple stamping for you on this Sunday. And since I have been playing a lot with the Adventurous Journey Stamp Set I thought I would keep this one simple.

Just a 3 stamped boats on a card with a sentiment.

The sentiment is from the Waves of Inspiration Stamp Set and it was diecut with the Beautiful Shapes Dies. The red banner was just a strip of Real Red card and I snipped some banner ends with scissors. Then some Red Rhinestones to finish. You can have bling on Male cards right. 🙂

Have a great Sunday.

cards, Masculine


Another card with the Adventurous Journey. I have loved this stamp set. Really! It’s a great one for the boys cards – or the adventurer.

I have used the Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper which is an awesome pack of paper. It is a Host Rewards item from the current Mini Catalogue that you can redeem with your orders. It has paper suitable for Christmas, birthdays, Halloween even but suitable for lots of occasions.

The kayaker was coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.

I have more with this set that I will share with you over time so watch out for them.

cards, Classes, Masculine


I have been playing a lot with the Adventurous Journey stamp set lately. It’s such a great one for the boys cards. It was fun to use this in class last week too.

I wanted to try something a little different. I have noticed Book Binding Fold cards around and thought that would work well.

Here is the card.

The outside.

The kayaker was coloured with the Stampin’ Blends. For the sentiment I stamped the words on the Balmy Blue card and Crushed Curry Card. Then diecut them with the long sentiment die in the Sending Dies. It was easy to just trim them down.

I find that a lot easier than trying to squeeze a sentiment on a thin strip of card.

The paper is from the Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper pack which is a Host Reward in the Mini Catalogue. It’s great paper by the way. It has such a range of colours and prints. Why not take a closer look at it.

This is the inside.

I think I will just have to put together a video soon for it. So stay tuned on that.

If you need any supplies to create your next project I love to serve you. Head to my store -> HERE. Please use the Host Code: 6PPKEPZJ

cards, Catalogues, Sale-A-Bration, Stampin' Up!


The Rings of Love Paper available for Sale-A-Bration is quite a surprise really. I have been playing a lot with it!

Sharing two cards with you today as we are running out of time!

Firstly with some scraps of paper I had left I put this card together. and just added a sentiment and embossed the Mint Macaron card mat with the Brick and Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.

The sentiment is from the Go To Greetings stamp set.

Now to my second card.

With my class this week with the Adventurous Journey Stamp Set I have been having lots of fun creating with it. I thought this print from the Rings of Love paper looked like a watery background. I really liked the effect of it. And no mess with creating a watercolour piece!

The sentiment is from the Painted Poppies Stamp set stamped on a diecut circle from the Beautiful Shapes Dies.

This week Sale-A-Bration all comes to an end and you won’t be able to get this paper again. Don’t miss it … 😦

I have shared a few cards with it recently so head back a few posts if you missed it.
