The little bird that fried my nerves!

Hello lovelies! I hope you're all enjoying this beautiful sunshine that's been gracing us so intermittently. If you're wondering why it keeps switching from glorious heat to hailstones in a matter of minutes, it's because I keep thinking about pegging the washing out....

I’m a craft-a-holic… does that mean I can get my sharps box on prescription now?

I discovered recently that I really shouldn't be putting my used scalpel blades in the bin, no matter how many layers of card they are wrapped in or whether or not I then wrap them in twenty layers of foil, they're sharp little blighters and some poor unsuspecting bin...

Shhhh. Free Logo Design. (Yep. I know, right?!)

I'm feeling festive, I'm also feeling a bit snuffly and like I've been run over by a bus, but I'm going to focus on the festive feels here. I've also been feeling a wee bit nostalgic for the last year (already, god help me NYE!) and how AWESOME it's been. You lovely...

Hand Cut VS Machine Cut – The war of the blades.

All too often I find myself recoiling as I watch others complain about how machine paper cuts shouldn't be classed as handmade. As someone who does both, it honestly makes me squirm. Hand cutting, granted takes a little more commitment - it's happened to me many a...

Missing legs, and free stuff!

So if you follow me over on Facebook you may have spotted my little accident this week involving my latest template which I was cutting to celebrate hitting 1000 likes. (Yep, I got there, how exciting is THAT!) Anyway, there was a casualty, it was the leg of an N and...

Paper Cut Template: Floral Frame

So this new template has been my focus for the last few days. I hand drew it, which took much tweaking before I was happy and then began the cutting. It took a bit of patience because I cut it from 130gsm cartridge paper, which isn't the strongest stuff in the world...

New books? Yes please!

When I was in primary school I had a complete and utter obsession with having a new exercise book. I used to get ridiculously excited when I reached the last few pages of my current book and I'd write five times the size in order to fill up the last few pages quicker....
