Here goes.............

Never having 'blogged' before, I have lost count of the number of times I have tried to start this.  However today's the day.
So where do I start? 
I am currently off work due to illness and thought this would be the ideal time to start my Christmas cards (I have made the grand total of 2 !!!) but I have been 'playing' with my cuttlebug and spellbinders and have made a few toppers which will eventually form part of the cards.  I recently bought some dies from Creata and I have to say they are so good to work with. They cut and emboss really well and I will be buying a few more in the near future.
Eventually I hope to become a sample maker for designers, although I really should get myself organised and try and make this happen, so any advice out there will be gratefully received.
Here are some of my most recent makes
This was made for a work colleague for her Mums 80th Birthday

I designed this for a friend's recent 60th Birthday.


  1. Lovely cards Carolynne ! I like them both but I have to admit to have a sweet spot for the owl one. X Fab

  2. Great cards! As a designer who has just recruited some new Design Team members I'd advise you to keep your eyes on Designers blogs and websites as that is where you will probably see call outs for new members of teams. Good luck.
