Welcome To My Blog

Hi everyone!!

My name is Jan and I live near Cardiff with my husband, dog and my 3 gorgeous Birman cats. Everyone who knows me, knows that I am mad about cats. I gave up breeding thema couple of years ago and can't wait to start again. In the meantime, crafting has become my new obsession.

I have been card making for about 6 years now but it is only recently that I have discovered a real love of stamping and hope to share that with you in the future.

vintage or shabby chic???

Hi, been struggling with mojo these last few weeks but went on a workshop on the weekend and it's made a brief return. So, off to the craft room to make some cards so here is one of them.

This card is not my usual style but it came together really quickly. The foliage and flowers were done on my  cameo using Stampin Up’s Crumb Cake card. Papers were Maja designs and Santoro Mirabelle. Am afraid I can’t remember which company did the butterfly die. The banner die was by LaLa Land. The sentiment was Stampin Up and was punched out using one of their punches. Hope you like.

Creating Christmas cards

Today I have been on a roll...must be the horrible weather outside reminding me of Christmas !!! The first card was made using the gorgeous LOTV new Christmas stamps. Used some corrugated card and hessian for the background. The die cuts are Tim Holtz On the Edge fence and Marianne Christmas tree. Hope you enjoy these offerings x I have entered the first card in the LOTV monthly challenge.
