About Me

I have been a Stampin' Up Demonstrator for almost two years now, and when I signed up it was just for the starter kit and discount on products........ I never imagined it would snowball into being a business like it has. I am a new Mummy to my little boy, Isaac, who is almost four months old now. I am spending my maternity leave enjoying watch him grow up, becoming his own little person, and also trying to build my business up. Stampin' Up! have amazing products and I would love to share my crafting passion with as many people as possible. I am always putting through orders, so if you need anything, or just want some information or advise, please do not hesitate to contact me. If you want to try before you buy, then check out my classes and get booked on.

Quilting Technique


I wanted to try something a bit different on a card for the sketch over at The Paper Players this week.
The sketch was nice and basic, so I wanted to jazz it up a bit, so thought I'd give Paper Strip Quilting a go.

What is Paper Strip Quilting I hear you ask?  Well take a look..............

Cut a piece of card to 1" square, then from three different pattern DSP cut strips of 3/8".
Cut a backing piece of card to 3 1/2" square and stick the 1" piece in the centre.  Take a strip of paper and glue it down along one edge and work your way round the 1" square until all four side are done, then move on to the next piece of DSP and glue down to make the next layer.  Continue until the backing card is totally covered, and then trim away the overhang.  
I mounted this onto some Basic Black card and glued it to a card base of Rose Red Textured Card.
The butterfly is cut using the Beautiful Wings Embosslit, and the sentiment is from Curly Cute.  I added a Basic Rhinestone for some girly bling!  :o)

The Details: 
Card / Paper - Rose Red Textured / Very Vanilla / Basic Black / Sweet and Sour Speciality DSP
Stamps / Ink - Curly Cute / Basic Black
Embellishments - Basic Rhinestone
Tools - Beautiful Wings Embosslit / Stamp-a-ma-jig / Trimmer / 2-Way Glue / Snail / Stampin Scrub and Mist
