Fab Florals!


Now I’ve been digging through my stash for elements for a baby card for my new niece, Sofia! I obviously haven’t been through baby things for around 2 years now and my ‘little one’ is now 3!

During my rummaging I came across this gorgeous floral backing paper. I has a gorgeous texture to it and I got a lovely Cath Kidston feel from it!

The other elements are from the Forever Friends Scrapbook collection, which I have yet to finish!

Hope you have a great week crafty people 🙂


Crafting with Crafty Beggars!

Hi Gang!

So when I was at Hobbycrafts at London’s Excel I met up with an old friend of mine, Julie Peasgood who now crafts on ‘Crafty Beggars’ which is a new show on the Community Channel.

Julie and Wendy were selling kits to make this cute little sock monsters!

I made this for Charlie, it was a really cute kit! On the stand at the Excel you could choose your own sock, ribbon and buttons. My hand sewing isn’t anything to be desired but I think he turned out quite cute!
