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 morning, hope you are all having a lovely relaxing weekend.
I'm super excited to let you know that the lovely Toni Darroch from Stamps by me Limited is onnCreate & Craft today at 8pm and tomorrow at midday. The shows are all about the Eureka 101 which I love. It's for stamping, water colouring, scoring etc etc. I thought I would share a simple card that I made just adding some scoring lines using the score tool and board that comes with the Eureka. I then used a variety of stix2 products for a simple card.  Hope you like it.
Don't forget to tune in as Toni designs everything 100% with the crafter in mind.....

 Well don't forget to tune in. Have a wonderful weekend. Thanks for dropping by.

Hello and a huge warm welcome to my blog. I'm so happy that downloading various google things actually worked ! I would like to say a big thank you for visiting and leaving me messages. I currently have 90 followers and I will be giving away some blog candy when I reach 100 so please spread the word.
Right last Thursday saw the release of some lovely new dies and stamps from the lovely Toni at Stamps by me Limited. The tag dies are just wonderful and cut like a dream. Here are some of the samples I made for the show....

Really enjoyed working with these dies, hope you managed to watch the shows on Create and craft.
Well I've been busy crafting all day so far and so glad it's the school holidays lots and lots of time to craft.

Fingers crossed

Hello and a warm welcome to my blog.... fingers crossed this post appears with the photos. I've had to download google plus only to then find out I also needed google photos. Honestly why have Apple removed blogger from the App Store! So frustrating.
Anyway I've been busy still crafting and Sharing photos on Instagram & FB but thankfully I can now share with my blog followers. That is of course if I have any left lol.
Well on Thursday Leonie did some shows on Hochanda using her fabulous Christmas range. I made a few samples for the show.

I really loved working with these again and I'm sure anybody that has purchased them will also love them. I will now finally this weekend get round to catching up on everyone's blog and comment now that I'm back up and running ( hopefully ) . 
Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.
Take care

Hi and a big warm welcome. I'm so sorry I'm still having big issues with blogger, I've had a new phone and now blogger has been removed from the App Store ! It's still on my iPad but keeps locking me out. I've tried to post with photos but then they come up blank. Please be patient as I'm useless with technology.
I've been super busy with my new jobs and my DT work.  I was also lucky enough to help the lovely Susan from crafty bunch on her stand at the Hochanda create it live event on the 17/18th June . I loved the whole buzz of helping set up the stand, do some make and takes and then help take it down.
I've tried to upload a few photos but they aren't working!
Right must go go t some DT work and then going to try and sort the blogger/photo problem out.
Take care and thanks for stopping by.
Big hugs
Elaine x
