The Best Day Ever by Amy


I would love to share with you my latest page for the jot magazine mood board http//


Materials used. Bo Bunny 'Family is' collection, Kaiser Craft wood veneers, and chalk board stickers cut to shape.

I heart you by Amy, using fabric

HELLOoooooOOOOO scrappers,

Completed a sketch challenge today from


I like it when the baby is asleep long enough to get the mojo going


Materials used Bo Bunny Zip a Doo Doodle Collection, Love Notes Photo overlays, and Paperloft License Plate letters.
I made use of some material from Eli's baby clothes to make that heart.

First cut strips of matching material into long strips,
Weave this material and sit it on a piece of card.
Mix PVA glue and a little water to slather the weaved material until its evenly moist.
Wait til completely dry, cut into desired shape and stitch a lovely border.

Its fiddly but give it a try great way to keep some baby clothes and not let it take up space in a wardrobe.

I love me some such strong colours.

Hope you like it

Dreams by Amy, WW1

This weekend plans were that I would get a few hours in my office. I cleaned, baked, kicked my man out to go for a ride, walked the dog and took the kids to the park. I was ready I was excited and then I got unwell and all my hard work was for zilch. Isnt it just Murphy's law?
But I got this one page done so its not a total loss.

This has been published with 

This is my WW1 challenge

I played with watercolours and embossing for this one. It was fun and I'm happy with the abstract background I got out of it.
That's it for now.

Graphic 45 Design Team 2014 Audition

Hello Readers
So since the announcement of Graphic 45’s DT call I’ve had my head down and got the crafty mojo going.

Six entries that represent me and my Graphic45 mojo ... mostly


1.       Family

Materials used – Graphic 45, American Thickers, Flourish with a Bling designs, Kaszazz metal flowers (time).

I love the stitching this is my own drawing and then stitching the outline.

2.He is Ready


Materials used, A piece of cake kit, flairs and wood banners, Bo Bunny, Thicker, Amy Tangerine.

     This is a repost of this layout. I’m happy with the journaling Q&A of my five year old, I want to know I will remember him in this moment for years to come.

3.The Hooker In Me

Materials used-Graphic 45 Steampunk, Flourish with a bling,, Kaszaz clogs, wood veneer, Kaiser Craft Paper flowers

4. Home Finally

Materials used – Graphic 45,  Thickers, Flourish with a Bling, Kaszazz embellishments, Kaiser Craft and Prima flowers

5.Thank you card



Materials- Graphic 45, Thickers, rub ons,

The original frame of this card said the words ‘Joie de Vivre’ but that didn’t work for my card. I cut another rectangle out the same side, and fussy cut the matching flowers. That way I can use the rub on and love the effect.

6.The Freestanding Steampuntian Mask


Materials used-Graphic 45 Steampunk paper, Mask spotlight, paint, crackle paint, pearlised  pen, kaszazz metal clogs, fabscraps chipboard, feathers, photo clamp stand, spotlight bear stand, black feathers

Think paper m├Ęche/fussy cut. The photo and embellishment is held up by a model bear stand bent to hold a photo but you could use a photo clamp on a stand.
if you look closely you will see the detail crackle paint, my good camera decided not to Work tonight.

Wish me luck peeps
