Dear Apple

Hi all,

I have another Gorjuss card to show you today - loving working with this fab collection. I went totally made when it came out and brought everything in sight lol. The A4 pack has so much stuff in it I think I am going to be playing with it for ages.

This decoupage design is called Dear Apple - I totally luvs her, so adorable. I generally don't like decoupage but do like using just one extra layer on top the base for dimension. TBH I am in such a total colouring funk at the moment - toppers and decoupage are my saving grace lol

Class Cards

Hi all,

Its been a while since I showed you what I have been up to with my class ladies so thought I'd pop on today to show you a few of my recent class cards. I try to keep them quite simple and not too overloaded so that we have time to finish to card off in the 11/2 hours the class lasts lol.

File Folder Card

Pop Up Box Card

Pocket Card

I get a lot of inspiration from Pinterest & Splitcoast Stampers and adapt to make easier or harder to suit my classes. So if you are looking for something a bit different I would definitely recommend having have a good route on these sites

A little bit Gorjuss

Hi all,

I have a cute little card I made to show you today using the fabulous new range of Gorjuss goodies. I am totally in love with anything Gorjuss and have been right from the very start when they were originally produced by Sugar Nellie and still have all those stamps stored away somewhere lol.

Well the new range came out in April just 2 days before my birthday - so was a perfect excuse for me to have a little spend lol. I love the slightly lighter and brighter colours of this collection especially the lighter blues/pinks & lilacs so they were the first to be grabbed when I opened the packet.

For the card everything came from the Ultimate Die Cut Collection pack and I embellished with the gorgeous ribbon & mixed charm pack. I only used 1 layer  + the base layer of the decoupage  (as I dont really like lots & lots of layers) and stamped a sentiment onto one of the little die cut tags

Cute Critters

Hi all,

Thought I'd pop on today to show you another selection of cards I made a while back and never got round to blogging.

These were made using the Moonbeam Meadow Everyday Papercraft Kit, which went alongside the CD Rom from Crafters Companion.

I loved working with this kit, such a cute selection of images - pretty quick cards to make as well when there is no colouring involved lol.

Me time

Hi all,

OMGoodness I'ts been a long time since I actually managed a post on here, time flies when your having fun - or not as case may be.

I haven't really been crafting much to be honest - apart from teaching my classes my card making whittled down to more or less nothing from about Oct last year and I have only just begun to get the bug back. Although I have been rather busy doing other things, which I shall show you soon.

Anyway whilst going through all my files I have round quite a few cards and other bits and pieces that I never got round to blogging, so thought it was about time I uploaded them. Hopefully by the time I have finished posting all the catching up cards I should have some new ones to post - I have recently treated myself to a few new items - so watch this space lol 

This selection of cards is some I did for Crafters Companion back in September for a Spectrum Noir show on C&C - using the Scruffy Little Cats.

I have to say these 3 ladies were my faves out of the collection and I was pretty pleased with my colouring skills using the SN's - although I probably can't colour for toffee now lol.

Well its nice to be back, hopefully will manage to keep on top of things again now and get all the rest of my unblogged cards posted.

To read or not to read?

Hi all

Well its been a while since I last posted on here, tbh things have not been too good here with Abbie's health and life and all that boring stuff has gotten in the way of my crafting. In all fairness I haven't made a card in while though as I seem to be in a bit of a CBA mood lol.

But today I do want to show you a couple of picture of my latest obsession - The Art of Book Folding. I came across these beautiful patterns folded into books at my local Craft Centre and straight away fell in love with them and decided I wanted to have a go myself.

Well a couple of trips to the charity shop later and after searching online I managed to find a few groups on FB to join where I have found a wealth of help & advice from much more talented people than me, who not only fold their books but even make their own patterns as well. Some of these peeps are also very generous and give you some of their patterns for free to try out before buying off them. Its something I am finding very therapeutic and love seeing the outcome.

Anyway here are a couple of pic of my latest creations - First of all meet Mrs Prickle, my adorable little hedgehog friend.

Here's a heart I made for my friend who just had an operation and was feeling a little down.

Home - made just for me to sit on my shelf lol

And finally a Butterfly I made for my mom as she loves them lol

I have also set up a FB page now as well to show off my creations (cards, gifts and bookart) and hopefully sell some. I would love it if those of you who are on FB popped over and gave me like would be much appreciated thank you, you can find my page by clicking on the following link - Handmadebylyndsey

Thanks so much for popping by my blog today, will be back soon as have a few Crafters Companion samples I haven't shown you yet that I need to blog.

Bloomin Special

Hi all,

Here today to show you my inspiration card from over on the My Mums Craft Shop Blog

Today I have used one of the fab by Greeting Farm stamps - Anya Blooms. I love the size of these stamps they are a little larger than normal so give plenty of space for colouring! .

I teamed Anya with some bright and filly papers from Echo Park - we are family and kept they layout super simple.  I used a CC Designs sentiment and finished off with a few flowers and gems. 

Please do pop on over to the MMCS Blog throughout the week to check out my team mates fabulous creations.

Fairy wishes

Hi all,

I have had this sweet fairy image coloured up for quite a while now so decided it was time I finally got her onto a card.

The gorgeous image is from Tiddly Inks Stamps and is available as either a clear stamp or digi 

I teamed the image with some very pretty Kaisercraft papers that were free with a magazine a few moths back,  as was the fabulous vellum bunting. 
The sentiment is from a CC Design set and I finished off with a few paper and resin roses and gorgeous organza bow.
