My photo

Hey all my name is Samantha, I'm 32 from England. Engaged. I have been handcrafting cards since I can remember from making mothers day cards at nursery to selling them to friends and family now. I love seeing the reactions on peoples faces when you make a unique handcrafted card just for them. I have also been a keen scrapbooker/photographer since I was about 5 when my parents started to foster and I always kept a scrapbook for each child we cared for - which goes with them to their new families so they don’t forget any precious memories of their childhood.

More Christmas Cards

I Wanted to share some more Christmas cards I have made this weekend.

Using the Lilly of the Vally Die Cut Images

 I cut the lamp post with a template I found on Google but I've lost the link and didn't save the template so pretty gutted this will be a one off lamp post like this one. This was a per-embossed card with snowflakes and it had a blank square in the middle and I couldn't think of anything to do with them as they were so just used the top of it and put some little snow mounds at the bottom to make a little scene.




This one even tho it looks alot simpler took me ages as I made the felt poinsettia's and sewed the mini buttons on. I found a template for them online. Used red felt for the flowers and Green wool paper for the leaf part.I have made some white ones with gold centres but not sure which card I will use them on yet.




Thanks so much for looking.

Christmas Cards

So I have summoned the will to go into my craft room.

Maybe because I got some goodies delivered!? Probably.

I have made a start on my Christmas cards and these are what I have made.



I love them both but I think the LOTV one with the postbox is my favourite. I am going to make a few more like this. I am hoping to get some crafting done over the bank holiday - yey 3 days off work.

Adam is taking me to the Beamish Museum on Saturday I cant wait!! I have not been for about 11-12 years so hopefully there are newer things to see this time. I will be taking loads of photos so will have to scrap them.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Lost the Will to Craft

Sorry I have been MIA for a while but I have lost the will to go into my craft room. It's been almost a month since I have made anything.

I have just ordered some Christmas craft stuff off Ebay in the hope it will push me to start my Christmas cards as is only 128 days till Christmas.

Another reason I have been MIA is I am a little unsure if I am going to have a job come October. So I am on the look out for a new job - Any one want to hire me? ... no didn't think so! There is nothing out there that I want to do or am qualified for. Wish I stuck in at collage!

With all this going on I am slightly stressed and having a few emotional outbursts lol So I am seeing a counsellor once a week just to get everything off my chest. Pretty embarrassed about it but I need a neutral person to talk to who isn't going to judge me. I also have a major stupid cough which I think is a chest infection as its affecting my breathing too which is annoying me.

Hope everyone is happy & healthy

Love Sam x
