About Me

Hi and a warm welcome to my blog. My little place in the cyber crafting world. I'm Elaine and I'm 42 years old and married to the most amazing man I could wish for. My passion is all forms of crafting and I'm extremely lucky to be on the design teams for Leonie Pujol and Toni of Darroch at stamps by me limited . I also do a bit of demo work for stix2 anything and I love it. I've recently retrained after being made redundant to become a Teaching Assistant which is a very rewarding job. Well I hope you like what you see on my blog. I'm always grateful for people taking a peek and leaving messages x

Good afternoon, lovely sunny weekend, hope your all having a fab time and enjoying yourselves. 
Recently I spent time making loads of alcohol ink backgrounds 

Then I decided to use the fantastic stamps from Leonie pujols last release on  Hochanda, This is how it finished 

I was really really pleased with this but made it after the launch so it wasn't shown on TV ! Love this collection of stamps and quotes. 
Hope you like it, I'm off now to have a play with new graphic 45 papers. 
Thanks so much for visiting xxxx
