Pretty Christmas tags with Notes & Things

I’m not very traditional with my Christmas colours. I like to use turquoise, pink and purple on my tree! I decided to do an advent for my partner and I this Christmas, mainly because I picked up loads of little bloke gifts for him in the Next Christmas sale last year. So I picked up enough […]

A Countdown to Christmas

Some time ago I purchased a naked wooden advent calendar box at a local craft show, with the intention of decorating it beautifully and creating a beautiful centrepiece for my Christmas Decorations. Needless to say, that box sat in my loft, undecorated for a couple of years, until a couple of weeks ago when I […]

A whole collection in a tiny package…

Hello. My name is Niki and I am a paper-aholic. There, I admitted it. I can’t bare to miss out on a single pattern and therefore usually HAVE to buy every paper in a collection, usually in the form of a collection pack or paper stack. But sometimes the collection packs aren’t available and I […]

Glittery thickers…

I’ve re-found my love of glittery thickers! With so much choice these days for alphas for your layouts, from manufacturers stickers to specialist die-cuuting machines, I for one have been less inclined to reach for my thickers stash and use them for titles on my layouts. In turn, I seem to design each layout overlooking that […]

Holidays are coming!

There’s no hiding now – in the words of the Coca-Cola ad – Holidays are coming! October is usually the time of year when my Christmas crafting really gets ramped up in preparation for the craziness of December. It’s also the time in the craft shopping calendar when all the new holiday releases are hitting […]

A Love Story…

My hubby and I have recently been on a long weekend away without our children. Most of the time we are so focused on them that we forget about each other, so our recent break from them gave us new focus and made us realise that time to ourselves is important. While we were away […]
