Hi, A very warm welcome to my blog! Initially, I’ll be sharing with you cards and albums I’ve made for my family. I make my cards in a “hybrid” fashion… using both kits I’ve bought in shops together with digital products (although I’m more and more favouring the digital side!).
There are many freebie digital products on-line given by very generous digital designers and all you need to create wonderful things with these is publishing / MS Publisher and have progressed to Photoshop Elements 8 and Photoshop CS4. Check out www.craftcrave.com and http://scrapbook.creativebusybee.com/ for freebies. If I can create with digital products, so can anyone!. I started using
I hope to give instructions here on my blog too eventually – please contact me if you’d like to know how I’ve achieved something you’d like to achieve. I’m learning constantly and would love to design my own digital kits one day.
I like to think I have always been creative – hard not to be when your mother is an accomplished needlewoman (both machine stitching and cross stitching). When I’m creating, I’m in my element! I not only make cards and other paper goodies, I also lead mirrors, glass paint and would love to try sculpture. I also used to decorate cakes and loved moulding sugar paste into beautiful delicate flowers – wasn’t happy unless they looked real!
Just over 4 years ago, I had to give up work due to illness and with the help and support from my lovely husband and 2 daughters, I’m now able to do things I used to do, but in a different way. Life is a challenge you just have to take! Some of my photographs on this blog may appear to be out of focus. In fact, I have a tremor – annoying, but it’s part of me now.
Thank you for stopping by! Come back soon!
