Product review for Hunkydory

Good Afternoon.

I was asked by Hunkydory if I would like to do a product review and of course I jumped at the chance.

This was not as easy as I thought it would be as they have so many gorgeous products it took me a while to decide. In the end I decided to review some Creative Expression Dies by Sue Wilson.

I have two project to show you today the first one being the Frame and Tags set Claire.

The largest die measures 10.6 x 10.6cm.

There are five dies in this collection two of which are fairly intricate but they cut like a dream on the first run through.
I have layered the dies for this project but they can also be used to create an aperture as I have done below, all that is needed is to add some bling. 

The sentiment is part of the set used in my second review.

Also available to co-ordinate with this die set are two stamps which you can see below.

For my second review I have used the Frames and Tags die Isobel.

 I loved using this die as it is so different to any I have but I think it may become one of my favourites.

Their are two large dies which cut out the border with the swirly corners the largest of which measures 12.3 x 9 cm. There are also three dies in this set, Celebrate on this card, Just for You on my first tag and Thanks as below.


Once again Hunkydory thank you for asking me to write a review. I have thoroughly enjoy using your products and I hope you like how I have used them.

Happy New Year.

Firstly I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year. I hope 2019 brings you much happiness. 

Now that I have finished making Wedding invites, I intend to craft more often. So that I have a beautiful space, I am going to have a good old tidy of my craft room tomorrow. You never know, I may come across some hidden treasures.

I would like to share with you another card I made using the Die'sire Create a Card Heart Easel die by Crafters Companion.

The flowers and backing papers were taken from a pad from The Range. The papers are really thick and was shocked to see they were priced at only £2.99. I have looked on their website but I cannot find the link. The chipboard Wedding Day is by Scrapiniec. 

The ribbons are also from The Range. They were a lot wider but I cut them down so that I could use the two colours without them being too bulky.

 The deep red flowers are paper dipped in a colour created with the Marion Smith Color Lab starter kit.

I would like to share this card with the following challenges

Papercraft Challenges - Celebrate

Thank you all for stopping by today and for your lovely comments.

Have a lovely week.

Dutch Doobadoo tag.

Good morning.

I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas with family and friends or if it was a quiet Christmas, I hope it was just as lovely. We had a lot of fun playing games and as is usual for Christmas day, far too much food. Boxing Day was very relaxing and spent watching films and eating left overs. Just what was needed before returning to work.

It has been a long time since my last post as life has been so busy. I finished my Wedding Invites the week before Christmas which meant I hadn't long to organise the food and games for Christmas Day.

I have made a bottle tag using to Dutch Doobadoo card art stencil to co-ordinate with the card on my previous post. 

The pretty heart is a die from Die'sire by Crafters Companion. I love the fact that you can create a card using the die and also use it as an embellishment. 

The flowers have been made using Lady E dies and Foamiran.

Thank you all for stopping by today. I would like to wish you a very Happy New Year and I hope that 2019 brings you much happiness.

See you soon.

Midway challenge for All About Magnolia.

Good morning.

It has been a while since my last post because I have been busy making Wedding invitations.
They are for my daughter's friend who, for unforeseen circumstances, was let down by the lady who was originally making them. Hopefully, I will have them all finished by the end of the month so that I can concentrate on posting more regularly.

I am here to share with you my inspiration card for the challenge over at

All About Magnolia.

Our theme for this challenge is 


We are being sponsored by

Two people will have the chance to win a secret prize.

 I have used the gorgeous Magnolia DooHickey Butterfly Die.

This is the first time I have used the heart easel die and I am really pleased with the results. Such a cute card. 

All the flowers have been made from Foamiran using Rosy Owl and Whimsy dies. 

I am going to spend a day this week making some more flowers and may also have a go at making my own Stamens. If you have ever watched a video on how to make these it looks so easy but seen as you use pva glue I can imagine I may get messy.

The papers were from Lilli of the Valley but unfortunately, they are not longer available.

The sentiment is by Scrapiniec. 

Thank you all for stopping by today and for your comments.

I will see you all soon.

Hugs Sharon. xx

Long time no see. I seem to be getting good at these long absences but hopefully should have more time very soon. Garden just about completed so just the front bedroom to paint and titivate.

Apart from the tiny Rosebuds, all the flowers have been made using Foamiran. The dies are by Rosy Owl and Lady E.  All being well, I am going to spend a day this week making nothing by these pretty flowers.

The chipboard which takes centre stage is by Scrapiniec. The circle mats have been created using stitched circle dies and Marianne Creatables. You can find the links to the products used at the bottom of this post.

Looking Gorgeous.

I feel like I am a stranger to Blogger at the moment.

Russ and I with the help of our daughter and her partner Kenny and our neighbour have been busy redesigning our front and back garden. After hiring a digger to take up all the turf and surplus soil we moved 3 ton of hard-core, 2 ton of soft sand, 89 paving slabs and 5 ton of gravel. We still have more work to do but thankfully, the hard work has been done. It is so nice to have some summer left so that I can enjoy our labours.

Anyway, on to my card.

I have used the gorgeous image from All Dressed Up, Looking Gorgeous. There is a link to all the products used at the bottom of this post. 

I have coloured her with my Prismacolor Pencils.

The shape of my card has been made using the Dutch Doobadoo heart card art which is one of my favourite shapes. 

The majority of the flowers have been made using dies and Foamiran. 

I have prettied the card with Ribbon, lace and of course, some bling.

I am getting rather excited as my daughter and Kenny are about to set a date for their wedding. I have booked tomorrow off work as we are going to a Wedding Fayre. I am wanting some ideas for Wedding Invites and Flowers as I am going to make them for Sophie. Wedding invites is something I would love to get into so lets see how I do with Sophie and Kenny's. 

I would like to enter the following challenges

Have a fabulous week.
