Quilling Sneak Peek

It’s Friday!!!

Hope your all well today and have had a nice crafty week, we have been very busy at home with a few home chores so haven’t done as much crafting as I would have liked. But I have got a sneak peek of the start of a very special card, If she reads this she will know its for her so keep it quiet lol 😉



Quilling Tool
Quilling Paper Strips
PVA Glue
Cocktail Sticks – Applying the glue
Sponge or Rubber Mat
Card Blank

I try and pin out my letters or numbers first to fill with quilling patterns when they are dry and secured.


I first start rolling my paper in the tool then cut the end and glue in place or leave loose apply a little glue to the side that will touch the inside of the number and place it gently inside. Once you start building up the pieces the shape will form quickly and after it’s all filled up you should have a solid piece when it’s dry and you can remove the pins. I think you can get special boards for quilling but I have so many tools and not enough space to keep every hobby lol, so my hands and eyes have served me well so far. I still get the finish I want it just might not be as accurate or precise as the next crafter.


I am sorry I can’t show the whole card today but I would love to share this with you on Sunday morning after the party the night before 🙂

Thanks for reading and update will be with you Sunday x
Hope you enjoy your Friday and you’re weekend!


Late Mother’s Day 2

Morning everyone x
Here’s the card I made for my mum for Mother’s Day her favourite colour is blue and I really wanted to make use out of a new stencils I got in one of the card making magazines.
I used a dabber that sits on your finger like a thimble with a blue chalk pad and the stencil to create this border, added the gems to give a sparkle and made sure the wording was centralised.
Hope you like because i think my mum did so all happy here. Have a lovely Sunday x X



Late Mothers Day Card Gallery

Oh my gosh! It’s been so long since I’ve had chance to post, I’m sorry.
Well i did get chance to make a few Mother’s Day cards, with a little help from Pinterest I had a starting point for the cards I made for friends. This Card is the one I tried to recreate.
This is a photo tutorial of how I got the look.



I also made a few in pink.

Have a lovely evening and I’ll be back tomorrow with some more Mother’s Day cards but these could defiantly be altered for birthdays 🙂 x night night x

Fisherman’s Friend

Evening all,
Today’s post Is the reveal of Dads Birthday card, yesterday was so hectic and I just totally ran out of time to post. One of my dads many hobbies is fly fishing and so I spotted these toppers and have been really looking forward to making a card for him.
The only little difference with this card is the fact I started with a 6×6 inch and then cut about 1.5 inch off the front. I covered the front of the trimmed blank with this tartan type paper which does remind me a bit of his shirts lol. I positioned a coordinating strip of card to the inside outer edge which you can see from the front and that’s where I adhered that cute little date card.
I used a cute fish brad on the inside to hold my sentiment in place and the toppers I positioned in a diagonal across the front.
Really hope you like this card and I’ll be posting again very soon x night night x

Here are a few pictures of my button stash I have a large clear plastic shoe box full of different sizes, shapes and colours of buttons! These all come in useful for my paper crafting including cards and scrapbooks and I do enjoy looking through. So please enjoy the pictures and have a wonderful rest of your evenings, thanks for reading x
