Naughty or Nice (Santa's come to visit!) - Stamp and Colour kit (Uniquely Creative)

Hello everyone! Welcome back to another post! As you may be aware, I have been approached by Uniquely Creative, a small Australian-based crafting company, who have asked me to guest design for them using the new October kit - and the wait is now over!

Uniquely Creative produce some great products in a wide variety of animal, floral and other themes. I especially a fan of the Aussie sets (I don't see a lot of genuine representation in the crafting industry so this is amazing) and I couldn't wait to get started!

As Christmas is just around the corner, this release is perfectly timed to give you some new sets to play with and create some projects to send out!

Roses with Polychromos Pencil Colouring (Altenew's Paint-a-Flower Release)

I don't often purchase monthy subscriptions for crafting materials, but when I saw the new Paint-A-Flower monthly release from Altenew I fell in love. These are a stamp-only release with usually one large and one small floral image. You all know I love florals and I was excited at the clean lines and various ways you could use them.

I've got two cards to share today using the Rose stamp set. Let's get into it!

Hello everyone! 

I'm popping in with another quick card using Technique Tuesday's Royal Jasmine flower!

It's been a busy and yet quiet couple of weeks. I've been without work for a month but I have the good news that I can go back soon! So I'll be back into the swing of usual business. In the meantime, I've had a chance to relax, spend time with my boyfriend and, of course, craft!

Glorious Pretty Peacocks (Technique Tuesday Greenhouse Society)

Hello everyone!

What a time we're living in, huh? It's been a crazy 2020 and honestly, I'm not sure if anyone knows what's coming next! Bush fires ripped through much of Australia's backyard, and now the world is in turmoil with the Corvid-19 virus spreading rapidly. It's enough to wonder how the economy will cope, how people won't go crazy if they're in lockdown, and what the world is coming to!

However, I'm here to brighten up your day with some gorgeous peacocks from the new Technique Tuesday March release! It was a lot of fun to sit down and colour, focus on my desk and not what's going on outside. I hope you enjoy!

Polychromos Pencils - First Impressions (with Technique Tuesday Greenhouse Society)

Hello everyone! Welcome back.

If you've hung around on my Instagram recently, you may be aware that I purchased some new fancy pencils and I've been dying to try them out!
I took the opportunity to create a design inspired by a card I saw from Martin Stone, a very popular crafter on Instagram. He also created interesting backgrounds using stencils, shapes and lines. I decided to have a closer look and try it out myself!
