Do you know how versatile crumb cake is?

Hi and welcome to my blog. Don’t you just love it when you stumble upon a colour combination that you fall in love with?

These pretty designer series papers are from Stampin’ Up, in pretty colours of blushing bride and concord crush, and there are a few more colours in the pack. I teamed these with crumb cake ink and cardstock and just loved how they looked together …

The beautiful butterflies bigz die was perfect for the focal point …

Blushing bride and crumb cake – another marriage made in heaven…


I hope you like my cards for today – both are DL size. Mother’s day in the UK was earlier this year, but other parts of Europe and the US, are still to celebrate their special day for mums. If you changed up the sentiment, these cards would be great for lots of different occasions – birthday, get well, friendship, thank you, or just because. What will you make with yours?

Meet Mindy, my prima doll …

Happy Monday! The sun is shining, it’s time for summer dresses, and so now for something completely different … meet Mindy, my prima doll…

Prima doll Mindy for Pasha's birthday

Can you fall in love with a paper doll? ‘Cos I think I have! 

A very good friend of mine, Joanne, gave me this stamp as a present, as well as a beautiful handmade card, and I just love, love, love her!

Inspired by Joanne’s card, I did some paper-piecing to make a card for my friend’s little girl, Pasha, who turns 9 today …


Pasha has the most gorgeous, dark-brown, curly hair, so I gave the dolly hair just like hers, using chocolate chip polka dot designer series paper (dsp) from Stampin’ Up!, and a pretty dress in sweet sorbet dsp.

It’s a little difficult to tell from the photos, but I added dazzling diamonds glitter to parts of the dress, shoes and flower centres too, for some birthday sparkle …


I stamped flowers from the flower shop and petite petals stamp sets by Stampin’ Up, punched out with the co-ordinating punches, and scattered them around the card.

So a huge thank you to Joanne for my lovely present and card – I love them both to bits, and a big shout out and happy birthday to the lovely Pasha – hope you have a fabulous birthday sweetie.
