Visit the Victorian world of steampunk..........

Hi everyone, I hope you're having an enjoyable week.  The scissors have been snipping away in the craft room this week creating a new steampunk themed Wide Folio Album.  Altered in papers from the Voyages Fantastiques collection by Stamperia this four page album is packed full of all things mechanical in true steampunk style.  This eclectic collection combines a subtle colour pallette with stunning steampunk imagery and background papers, and makes a perfect choice for projects with a more masculine feel. 
I you're a lover of all things steampunk you can find more info on this album, featured products including the paper pad and kits over on my new blog by clicking here: 
Enjoy your week and thanks for calling by :-) C

New In- Alice Wide Folio Album

Hi everyone,

I think I mentioned in my last post I've been working away here on some new crafty makes and am really excited to be launching and sharing them with you today.  We're launching a new range of basic album kits, perfect if you love the creative process of making albums but just want a bare base to create your own freestyle pages on using your own papers and supplies.  The first in this new range is the Wide Folio Album.  This new look album has a wide spine, four folding pages that have magnetic closures and a new page style that allows the pages to lay flat as you turn them.  The album measures H: 8 1/4" W" 6 3/4" D: 2" - a perfect size for 8 x 8 papers. 
We have a PDF Tutorial on how to make the basic album using your own supplies, which includes the dimensions needed to cut your own album covers and a Basic Kit option that includes the full PDF Tutorial, pre cut MDF album cover and spine set, black card,  magnets, round tabs and a 5m roll of our …

The Complete Planner Kit - back in stock!

Happy Monday to you. I hope you had an enjoyable weekend. Can you believe we've reached the end of January and are into the first week of Feb. Time is definitely flying by again this year........ Or am i just getting older lol!!!     Lots of people have been asking about the Planner Kit I launched a couple of years ago.  It was incredibly popular then and I am delighted to say it's now back in stock!  If you haven't seen it before it really is a perfect make for keeping organised and on track all year round with a 52-week sheet week by week planner pad, a list pad, sticky notes holder, pen and, all housed in a sturdy MDF cover.  
You can choose any papers you like to cover it.  It takes four to five depending on what you want on the cover.  My pictured sample was altered in four/five 12 x 12 papers I chose from a wall of papers in a craft shop I taught at, (sadly I can't remember the make) and the sample in the video below was altered in papers from Natures Sketchbook co…

New! Alice Curio Cabinet Kit - all the way from wonderland!

Morning everyone, have you seen the new paper collection from Stamperia - Alice. It's really inspired me to come up with some Alice in Wonderland themed kits which I've thoroughly enjoyed designing, all available over on the website.  There will be more kits coming soon, so please make sure you visit the new blogto keep up with the latest releases.
To introduce the collection and the first of my projects, here's my Alice Curio Cabinet Kit: Click here to see more on this kit. I've included some fabulous detail, a hook lock closure and wooden feet.
As you can see inside, there's magnetic bars that can be removed and replaced to hand all your earrings on, hanging areas for necklaces and bracelets and even a storage area for those little boxes our jewellery comes in that we all like to keep and tuck away. This would make a perfect gift for any Alice fan. 
I just loved the colours and illustrations in this collection - the detail is exquisite and brings to life the Alice …

2019 Event Dates

Happy New Year my crafty friends.  I hope you had an enjoyable time with family and friends over the festive season.  Can you believe, after all that prepping and planning that it's all behind us and we're already more than a week into the New Year.  
Thank you to everyone who enquired about my 2019 events. I'm pleased to announce I'll be hosting two events this year at the Holiday Inn, Kenilworth, Warwickshire.  A great central venue, with a direct bus route from Coventry Station if arriving by train and and a 20 minute taxi drive from Birmingham International if flying in from overseas.  We've included the Friday Eve start option for both events. This proved really popular last year.  For all the info on the event, bookings and accommodation just follow the links below.
