Floral Sprays and Handmade Doilies

Happy Monday 

I am sitting her all wrapped up as the temp seems to have dropped a little bit!  Albeit not as cold as America is at the mo. We send all our warmest thoughts and prayers to you.

I have been making again.  I am really loving making my own paper flowers at the moment but I am trying to incorporate many skills I have learned during my crafting life.

So this is what I came up with



I have used a number of things in these.  I have made the doilies, and the flowers, the sprays and the pearl flowers.

Cherry Blossom Tutorial, inspired by Luvleescrappin.

Handmade Bling Swirls. Step By Step.

Hey Hey

I have been watching Youtube for a few ideas to further my crafting.  I have found a few money saving tips also so I would like to share them.  

The First is bling swirls you need a glue gun,Heat Proof Mat, heat gun and flat back bling gems or pearls or dew drops.


  • on a heat proof mat dispense the hot glue in a swirl pattern
  • when the desired pattern is achieved then get your bling, heat up the now cooled glue in parts and stick on your gems.
  • They will stick to the reheated glue, then let that cool down 
  • when cool carefully peel off the gen swirl.  
  • when you need to use it then place the swirl on your project them put the heat gun over it to reactivate the glue and then your swirl should be glued to that surface. 
I hope that you will have a go at this. Here are what mine looked like

have a go and Keeeeeeeeeep Crafting xx

More Makes.

Good Crafty Wednesday to ya'll

After having a sort out in my crafty den i decided to make a few more cards. As one does and also the weather isn't that great so perfect times!!!

I am so loving the Emma Canning Digi stamps, I love the fact that they do not have a  very detailed face so then they can be used for just anyone young or old.

I have made an easel card and a card with hand crocheted flowers on.  






Hope you like, pop over and have a look there are a number of digi stamps for every occasion

My fairy name is

Fidget Snowfly


She brings peace between enemies. She lives in rotting woodlands near poisonous toadstools. She can only be seen at midday under a quiet, cloudless sky. She wears red with white spots, like toadstools and has shining pale blue wings like a cicada.
