Family Christmas Cards

I am able to share this set of Christmas cards that I made for my family because they have received them in the post already! I was pretty organized this year and as my children and grandchildren live in the UK, I was worried they wouldn’t get their cards in time.

Craft Room

Here it brand spanking new craft room and I love it!

Generally, the foundation of the design. including the peg board is from IKEA. If you look closely, you will see several cards on there. They were sent to me during this strange year by some of my favourite crafters in the letting you know one of them is from Jennifer McGuire shameless name dropping??

Merry Christmas Die

Merry Christmas!

Well, nearly :)

This Merry die was released last Christmas by Simon Says Stamp, but it arrived too late for me to use it then. So, it got pulled for this design. I made a silver and a gold version of the same card and added some greenery and subtle snowflakes to compliment the die.

Dachshund Through the Snow


I wanted to make a big batch of Christmas cards in memory of our little Sasha and this stamp set fitted the bill perfectly. It's called Dachshund Through the Snow, and it's by Clearly Besotted Stamps

Let the card making Commence!

 Hi guys

Well, my first giveaway to celebrate my return to card making went well!

A lucky crafter on Instagram won them, which is wonderful. 

I have been on a bit of a hiatus for nearly half of this year. We had put our house up for sale, and then the pandemic hit. We had already put a deposit on another house, so it was pretty stressful. It all eventually came together, but then one of my little dogs, Sasha passed away on Canadian Thanksgiving Day. She had been diagnosed with insulinoma two years ago, and was outliving all expectations. It was very hard to lose her though, and the house is very quiet without her. Our other pup, Molly has wandered around the house at times, but seems to be settling down now.

One awesome thing that I have been able to do since moving into our new home is build a brand new craft room!

Check out my next post if you want to check it out!

Bye for now, Cheryl :)

I'm Back!

Hi guys! 

I’m back in the crafting world!

Over recent months I have moved home, lost my poor little Sasha, and designed a brand new craft room!
I have also been designing Christmas cards, which is my favourite type of card. I love Christmas and I am looking forward to it more than ever this year!
I will be posting a giveaway tonight over on my Instagram to celebrate. I am giving away 4 stamp sets from 4 different craft companies, so keep an eye out for that. 
I am planning to share my new craft room with you over the coming days over on Instagram and here on my blog. I also have some new card designs to get you inspired for Christmas crafting.

Whoop!... :)
