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.

Sail Away!!

Hi everyone, being organised this year and doing my Father's Day card early. It's going to be a sad one this year as my stepdad died 4 months ago. Did 2 cards out of habit so now will have to chose one to give to my Father-in-law.
Shopping list is similar for both as most are Stampin Up! products

Papers: these are retired unfortunately...trying to use up my stock but any blue designer series paper or Beau Chateau will work equally as well. I punched the edges of the paper using the scallop edge punch
Stamps: Sail Away for the boat, Sentiment from Teeny Tiny wishes (such a useful stamp set!!)
Stamp writers used to colour the boat
Die cuts are from the new summer catty using the framelits labels collection and used whisper white and marina mist card.
With the card with father's day stamped on it, the other sentiment from Lilli of the Valley.

Hope you enjoy looking at them on this appropriately wet Bank Holiday. Happy crafting xx
