About Me

Hello to all fellow bloggers i am Denise and i have been card making for a good few year's now and i have also done a small amount of scrapbooking . I am married to Robin who likes to get involved as well by printing out the verses for my cards, we have one son called shaun and we live in Nottinghamshire, i am a stay at home wife and mum who likes going out meeting other crafting people. The first time i did any crafting i went to a small craft shop called Kim's in blyth which is a village shop near where i live. Then i got into cricut crafting i tried to master it myself, but then found out that Samauel Taylor's at leed's ran a cricut lessons by Sue Hobb so i got the basic step's from her. Then started going to Ali crafts near Lincoln and i found a lady called Fiona who really does know what she is talking about when it comes to cricut and the design studio so it is to her who i owe big thanks to for getting me to the stage i am at with my crafting.

 I had a little play day yesterday with a lily of the valley stamp, i stamped it with a very old ink pad infact i think it must have been one i have had year's it was so dry,but i like the result i got from it,the shape is a spellbinder, first i stamped it on white them cut it then i drew around it to give me a small gold edge,then i used a distress ink in broken china to dust over it,The main card i stampes around the edge's with a putty colour ink on it i placed a very pale blue card and on that i used my mind's eye paper pack,now to finish off with a few gold swirl's and flower's made from my marianna die. x
