Floral Notebook


Hello, and if this is your first time here a very warm welcome to you! I hope you will enjoy your visit, please leave me a comment as I would love to visit your blog too. I hope you have escaped all of the nasty winter bugs going around, I am so looking forward to the spring! 
Today I would like to share my Floral Notebook with you, which I created for Indigoblu. Indigoblu make amazing, unique and very high quality rubber stamps which are all manufactured right here in the UK. Their new floral stamps are just gorgeous and are a joy to colour !

This is how I created my notebook. 




I removed some pages from an old book, this one happened to be “Wind In The Willows” I tore the pages into large strips, and adhered them  to both sides of the  notebook covers using Super Thick Slap It On.



Using a Versamarker ink pad I stamped the flowers and heat embossed them with brown embossing powder.
After colouring the flowers with Indigoblu paints I fussy cut them.I added some Mulberry Bush (this is my new favourite colour) paint to the edges of the notebook.I used sticky foam pads to adhere the flowers to the cover.I also added some pressed flowers to the cover.


I tied ribbons and twine to the book rings, and then stamped the anemones on the bottom of each of the inside pages.

Fiskarettes Design Team Reach For The Stars


I am very happy and honoured to reveal today that I have joined the talented Fiskars UK Design Team. I will be creating with them for the next 3 months. I have been crafting since I was old enough to use scissors, and I have always used Fiskars scissors and trimmers. I have found them to be of the highest quality and never let me down.

My first project for Fiskarettes UK is ‘Reach For The Stars”

I painted the box frame in a metallic white paint and punched stars out of masking paper and placed them over the top. I then painted over the frame in blue paint, and when dry I  removed the stars.

For the hills I used the circle punch and folded them in half and overlapped them, adhering them together.I covered the hills in texture paste before painting them.

I used invisible thread to hang  one of the glittery stars from the inside top of the frame

The lovely girl Stamp is drawn by the amazingly talentedPhyllis Harris and made by  Unity Stamps 


Thank you for visiting and Happy 2018 xx

Merry Christmas





“What does that beautiful star on top of the tree mean?”asked the curious hare

“It means that Jesus Christ our Lord has been born” replied the proud stag.


“When shadows fill our day

Lead us to a place

Guide us with your grace

Give us faith so we'll be safe”


I would like to thank everyone for all of your kindness and support. 


Merry Christmas xxx


Matthew 7:12; 'So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

Meeting Under The Mistletoe



If you remember my story from 12th December about the hare waiting under the mistletoe, this is the next installment.


For the next 11 days he continued to wash and fluff himself, and travelled to the three pines, to stand hopefully under the mistletoe.. but nobody ever came.


On the 12th day which also happened to be Christmas Eve, he decided this would be his very last visit. He hopped along with hope forever in his heart. As soon as he turned the corner into the three pines he saw the most beautiful and dazzling lady hare waiting patiently under the mistletoe.

She was waiting just for him....
