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

St Nick

I'm getting myself in the festive spirit ! 
I altered a frame for this weeks Jones crafts DT piece. I got the frame from the lovely lovely Sue, owner of the awesome crafty bunch.....not only does she run the craft shop but she is a fabulous friend too. 

I used the new Graphic 45 Papers
St Nicholas. Painted with prima paint that the lovely sue gave us at the retreat. Some fussy cutting here & there and my frame was complete. 
Thrilled with this collection that the ever so lovely & generous Darren Saxton from Jones crafts sent me...... I almost didn't want to cut it up !!!!!!
I'm very lucky to be on such wonderful design teams, and huge thanks to everyone that reads my blog. If it wasn't for you lovely people my little blog wouldn't exist. 
On that note it's time I got myself to bed, college in the morning..........
Take care & thanks for leaving comments. Have a lovely weekend xxx
