A couple of Jem's.....

Good afternoon, everyone.  I have managed to get a couple of cards made this week between spells of designing work, so I thought I'd blog them today.
They were both made for my best friend's birthday, which is today, so it's okay to share them now!
The beautiful rose and butterfly card is from the lovely Susan Andrews of Jem's Designs latest sell out cd which was launched on Thursday on Create and Craft - Wish Upon A Rose and is called "Vintage Pink"...isn't it just a delightful image?
The animal print shoe is from my second cd for Jem's Designs - Fancy Footwork and is called "Wild Thing".  My friend's daughter thought this very appropriate for her Mum's 60th birthday - so here it is!
I hope you like them and have time to leave me a comment, please.
 Fancy Footwork cd is available from www.jemsdesigns.co.uk
Wish Upon A Rose is exclusive to Create and Craft until the end of March dependent on stock availability, of course.
If you like this artwork please consider joining our facebook (closed) group where you would be made most welcome at
Hope to see you there!

Love to dance....

Hello, everyone...here I am again, after yet another spell of absence. 
It has been a bit hectic as we are busily prepping samples etc for the NEC show in Birmingham in March. This is Jem's Designs first ever major Craft Show, so we are hoping for a great response from everyone who can join us there.  We will be on Stand B08 - so pop in to say hello if you can.
Anyway, this post is to share a commission for a 40th Birthday which had to have a dance theme, so here is what I've made today.
I've used the image and background paper from My Craft Studio cd "Simply Silhouettes"
and, of course, Spellbinder and Memory Box dies
with my e-bosser to create this 7x7" card as it's such a neat size for the largest label die used.
It's very simply constructed, but I hope it fits the brief.
Thank you for popping in and I hope you can leave a comment.
Haste ye back!

Yesterdays' Dreams .....

Good evening, everyone.  I apologise for my somewhat lengthy absence from blogging but I hope when you read my post here, you will excuse me and understand the reason.
I am so thrilled, delighted and very excited to let you all know that some months ago I was approached by the wonderful Susan Andrews and Linda Ormsby of Jem's Designs to join their team as a cd designer.  Would I?  It's like all my dreams come true!
So I set to work and the result is that my debut cd "Yesterdays' Dreams" is launching on Create and Craft tomorrow at 12noon and 6pm in the expert hands of Susan Andrews herself.  My second one is also now completed and out for sampling as we speak with the super talented Jem's Design Team.
How amazing is that, and how fortunate am I to have been given such an amazing opportunity to expand into this where I can hopefully give something back to people who have been with me and helped me throughout the years.
I would love you to have a look at the launch tomorrow if you can and would appreciate your comments if you can spare the time.
So now you know what I've been doing!
I didn't know I could do it...do you think I have?
Thanks for popping in.
Haste ye back!

Hello, everyone.  I have been so busy on a project that I can't yet blog about, so I'm sorry I haven't been around much in the last few weeks.  However, more of that at a later date.. . well quite soon, actually!
I'd like to share a sneaky peek of my samples for Stepahnie Weightman's show on QVC next Wednesday 24th at 2pm.
They are from a gorgeous die cut kit from My Paper Stash called Everyday Vintage Kraft which consists of sheets of toppers, tags and borders all edged with delicious gold foiling in rich vintage colours..  As you will see below, there is something for the ladies and for men, too. 
These are well worth having in your crafty stash.  There are also some wonderful 12x12 kraft paper backgrounds on the show which work so well with this kit.
This kit gives you the perfact opportunity to get out your embossing folders, distress inks, perfect pearls, ribbon, cord, lace and your buttons etc, and just have fun!
I hope you like what I've done with them, and would love to have your feedback, please.

Thanks so much for popping in...Haste ye Back!

Tribute To A Seamstress.....

Here I am again...twice in one day...must be some kind of a record for me!
Anyway, I worked on making this special card most of the day yesterday so I would like to share it with you now.
Why so special...a few reasons, actually.
Mainly of course because it's for my Mum's 85th Birthday next week, but also because the top small piece of material looks exactly like that of a dress she bought back in the 50's and still has in her wardrobe.  It cost her a whole week's wages then (she was in so much trouble when she got home) ...it is still stunning but it is about a size 10, so not much hope of any of us ever getting into it!  She can't bear to part with it although she has considered taking it to some of the "retro" shops, but so far she hasn't and I'm not sure she ever will!  Finally, Mum has been tailoring and dressmaking for many years now and still attends a quilting class every second week and is busily making her Christmas panels for the family....I swear we are all running out of wall space to hang them...lol!
This is my humble tribute to a wonderful Mum whose energy at 85 puts me to shame at times and who has a busier social life than I do!
This has been designed in Craft Artist 2 Professional although I exported it to MCS to complete the text as I feel that it is easier to manipulate it there. 
The artwork is from Polka Doodles "Piknix" Heavenly Garden cd.
I'd love to know what you think of my first efforts with CA2.

My latest commissions.....

Hello, my friends, I hope this finds you warm, dry and happily crafting on what is a very miserable day here in South West Scotland.  Here are a few commissions I made last month but couldn't share until now.
I'm told they were very well received, and I hope you like them, too.
The first is from Jems Designs "A Puppy's Tale" cd and was for a 50th Birthday.

The second is from a My Craft Studio "Papercraft Library" cd and was for a First Wedding Anniversary.

And the third is a Birthday card made using Jem's Designs "Whispering Wings" cd.


Thank you so much for popping by, and I would appreciate your comments.
