It's definitely Autumn, isn't it? It's most definitely sweater weather and I can see the leaves changing beautifully here. Gorgeous yellows and reds are starting to happen. As soon as Autumn was in the air I wanted to combine the Soft Seedlings & The Leaf Fall Embossing Folder with some of the Brushed Metallics card. Check out the replay here to see exactly how it’s made. The Leaf Fall Embossing Folder is SO pleasing to use, with or without the metallic card. You can see a couple of ... VIEW POST

Gorgeous Leaves For Coffee & Cards
After the most glorious September, the weather is finally turning Autumnal. So it's only fitting that I use the Gorgeous Leaves For Coffee & Cards this week. It's such a beautiful stamp set. Use it on it's own or with the matching Intricate Leaves Dies. The great thing about them is that they are both stunning on their own or used together. For this week's Coffee & Cards Facebook live I am using the stamp set. #simplestamping for quick and easy cards. Gorgeous Leaves For Coffee & ... VIEW POST
Be Strong, Be Happy, Be You!
Be Strong, Be Happy, Be You! This is a great sentiment to use when sending a card with some words of support don't you think? I love how it stamps leaving the negative of the card stock behind, too. This card uses the Rooted In Nature stamps and the Natures Roots Dies. This is the second card for last week's Coffee and Cards. You can see the post for the first card here. Be Strong, Be Happy, Be You! Pair the Brushed Metallic card in Bronze, Copper, and Gold with the Natures Roots ... VIEW POST
Cosy Up With Plaid Tidings!
Cosy up with Plaid Tidings! Doesn't this paper just give you all the cosy Autumn feels and make you want to snuggle up indoors in front of a fire? I love this paper. It reminds me so much of the shirts my Dad used to wear, and indeed I do too, especially at this time of the year. Plaid is not really a word you hear often in the UK - more often this type of pattern is described as Lumberjack style shirt pattern. Either way, it's very me and I decided to pull it out for this week's Coffee and ... VIEW POST
Beautiful Autumn Is Here!
The seasons are changing and beautiful Autumn is here. We have a sketch for this week's Inspire Create Challenge #078 and I couldn't wait to get out the Gilded Autumn Suite Collection again. I have been playing with it so much. I love it! It's so versatile and easy to use. This is such a great sketch, it gives a focus, yet not too much to constrain you, leaving lots of room for creativity. This card is so fun to make! I made it for my Thursday evening paper crafting live last week. ... VIEW POST

Rooted In Nature Birthday Card – Inspire Create Challenge #053
Rooted In Nature Birthday Card - Inspire Create Challenge #053. With a special birthday card to make last week and the Inspire Create Challenge #53, inspired by the season I pulled out the gorgeous Rooted In Nature Bundle. We have a sketch challenge for Inspire Create Challenge this time. I used the Woodland Embossing Folder which may be a stretch for the sketch but it works really well for my card. The leaves are turning all sorts of beautiful colours around here and the Rooted In ... VIEW POST
Coffee And Cards – Rooted In Nature
I reached for the Rooted In Nature stamp set for Coffee and Cards this week. It's felt a lot cooler here over the last couple of days. Autumn is definitely on the way, perhaps that's why I picked it. We all need thank you cards too, I know I do. I love the images in this set and particularly the leaves The sentiment from the set makes a great thank you card but it could just as easily be a birthday card and the colours would make it a perfect one for the men. Here's the ... VIEW POST
