Tattered Lace 2014 Festive dies


I’m a little late with my post for the launch of the new Tattered Lace dies, Festive dies 2014 and Country Garden dies, over on Create and Craft. My gorgeous little dog, Merlin, was feeling very unwell last night and we had to make a visit to the emergency vet. Fortunately, nothing too serious, but it did mean me and hubby got bed sometime around 3am so had roughly 3 hrs sleep!! Merlin still unwell but he has had some antibiotics and a painkiller, plus some meds to take over the next few days. He is feeling better than he did last night, he’s usually bounding around everywhere but very quiet at the moment but he is definitely on the mend.

So back to the gorgeous new dies from Tattered Lace, I received the Krystal die, border & corner, some of the Festive Foral dies and the text die “Winter Wishes” from the exclusive Festive edition of the Tattered Lace magazine for Create and Craft.

You can find more great designs and inspiration over on the Tattered Lace FB page too.





















Tatty Twinkles – My Craft Studio CD-Rom

Tatty Twinkles My Craft Studio CD-Rom – Shades of Grey 8×8″ card

I’m still struggling with my frozen shoulder, my neck has been jipping for a few days, sore & stiff but manageable. However, Saturday morning woke at 5.30am in agony, and not just from waking at an early hour, the pain on the left side of my neck was shocking. Every single movement just sent sharp eye watering pains through me, suspect I hadn’t slept in the best position so my nerves/muscles had become very inflamed. Thankfully, the severe pain subsided with the help of painkillers and staying very still by the afternoon, still very sore and stiff but so long as I move slowly and carefully I’m able to manage!!! So no knotting or jewellery making on the horizon, driving me mad, but at least I can do my paper crafts 🙂

Last week got to play with the gorgeous new Tatty Twinkles CD-rom, from My Craft Studio, so if you not a stamper but loved the Tatty Twinkles stamp sets problem solved 🙂 The CD-Rom has beautiful background papers, pre designed cards, digi stamps and so much more. The CD-rom is launching on Create and Craft TV, shows at 9am and 2pm, today 9th June.

BD-i Tiaramaking May Challenge Bundle


Apologies for the late post regarding the BD-i Tiaramaking May challenge bundle, I posted earlier about the bundle but didn’t share my make, BD-i challenge bundle.

It’s a gorgeous bundle from BD-i and astounding value at £5, the pendant alone I’m sure would cost more than £5. I kept the design of the necklace quite simple for this piece because I adore the Butterfly pendant and wanted the focus on the pendant.



Please pop on over to BDI-i Tiaramaking and check out their products, and don’t let the name mislead you it’s not just about tiaras they have so much more, and the outlet section of the website has some amazing diamanté pendants, kilo bundles of findings and a variety of beads at brilliant prices.
