Testing papers for alcohol inks

Hello and welcome. Today I wanted to have a little chat about playing with alcohol inks. I am new to this so am by no means an expert. I only have Tim Holtz YUPO by Ranger paper to use for my alcohol inks, but I had read that you could use alcohol inks with glossy card stock. I have a ream of glossy white card stock so thought I would have a play. It worked to an extent, but I noticed that it dried a lot quicker than on the YUPO paper. This is the card I turned it into.

Foiling using normal dies

Hello and welcome.  When I had a play with my foiling machine recently, I had a play foiling with normal dies. There are special foiling dies you can use, but you can also foil with the normal dies you already have in your stash. So I decided to have a play to see what I could create. I played it safe and used a large sentiment. I was very pleased with how it came out, and this is the card I used it on.







I created an alcohol ink background, added some circles using a stencil and gold paint, then just added the large hello on foam. Such a quick and easy card that definitely packs a punch.

If you want to see how I made the foiled elements, be sure to watch the video below.

Foiled Background


Hello and welcome. Today I have the third card in my series on foiling. I recently had a play with my foiling machine and created a few elements, and now I have made them into cards. Today's card uses the foiled background I created. I think this is my favourite. It's so so pretty.





Isn't that just stunning? I am so glad that I have some foils on the way to add to my store. I can see a lot of them in my future creations.

Foiled Frame


Hello and welcome. Following on from yesterdays post where I shared a card using some foiled butterflies, today I have another card in my foiled series. This time I used the frame that I foiled in my first play with the Gemini Foil Press.

Foiled Butterflies

Hello and welcome. Today I have a card to share with you using foiled butterflies. Recently I had a play for the first time with my Gemini Foil Press machine that I have had for some time. The machine came with some butterfly dies and a few others. I used them when I had my first play and have made them into a card.




I kept the card quite simple as I wanted the foiling to be the hero. I just used an old Heidi Swapp butterfly mask to add the pink butterflies.

If you want to see how I made the foiled elements, be sure to watch the video below.

Creating a Giant Page Kit


Hello and welcome. A little while ago I started a scrapbooking series using the Country Fair Collection by Mintay Papers. Mintay Papers are very detailed and a lot of people struggle using them. So I wanted to create a series showing people that they are easier to use than they think.  I have just filmed the third video in the series.

This video talks about thinking of the Mintay papers like any other papers you might start a page kit with. Page kits are normally built around one detailed or pretty piece of paper. Other coordinating papers are then added in the colours that are present in that one icon piece of paper. So I decided to make one giant page kit using all the Country Fair papers I had left.

To see me explain in detail and show you what I mean, watch this video below.



I made this double layout using one of the Mintay Papers and others from the page kit.


Here are some larger pictures of the each page and some close ups.






I still have some of the Country Fair Collection by Mintay Papers in store if you are inspired to create with them.

Have a great day.

Altenew now in store.


Hello and welcome. Do you have a favourite stamp company? I do and it's Altenew. I am a flower lover and no one does floral stamps like they do. So I was so excited when my first Altenew order arrived. I have to admit, it was hard to not keep it all.....hehe... but I resisted temptation and loaded it into the store.

Here are just a few of the new items in store. 






There is so much more in store. Head over and take a look.
