Welcome to my blog

I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and please leave me a comment. I always enjoy reading them, and will try to visit you in return.

You are welcome to copy any of my designs, as long as you do not take credit for them yourself. I am very happy for you to sell them. If I have used anyone else's design, I always try to give credit where it is due. If I have missed anything, please let me know and I will put things right.

This is intended to be mainly about my crafting stories, as a personal record of what I do. However, I interpret crafting quite widely, not just paper crafting but other things too. I have a butterfly mind and like to change from one thing to another depending on what I feel like on a given day - knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, cards, baking and several others.

Less is More - Week 54 - One Layer and Stripes

Having gone into panic mode over stripes, my mojo suddenly bounced back, and this card appeared.  The flower is a surfinia cut (digitally) from one of my own photos, and then added to the design page in My Craft Studio.  Before I added the stripes, I embossed the flower to give it some texture.  Then I added the sentiment to match to match the stripes before printing the whole thing out.

Fabulous Maggie and so spot on for the LIM challenge! I have strips of tape and goodness knows what for masking on my desk right now - but you've cracked it perfectly. A winner in my eyes! Di xx
