Bert & Gert's - Design Team and Coasters ...

I am really happy to be able to announce that I am now part of the official Bert & Gert's Design Team. Thank you Jason Wilkes for letting me join your Bert & Gert family, I am really looking forward to the crafty adventures we will have together!

Keen stampers amongst you may have seen Bert & Gert's first two stamp sets: "Hearts of Oak" and "Mod" in the latest edition of Craft Stamper magazine.

The un-mounted stamps are made from high quality grey rubber and measure A5 in size. I have had my first play with them today and have found that they leave a perfect impression every time.

My very first DT project is a set of four 4 x 4 drinks coasters, made using just three of the ten stamps that are in the "Mod" set.

I used Memento inks in Nautical Blue and Ladybug and stamped the various images onto white sticky-backed vinyl. I then stuck the vinyl to four drinks coasters and if I say so myself I am very pleased with the result!

The stamp sets can be purchased on-line at:

Here are a few photos of my first official DT project, I would love to know what you think of them, so please feel free to leave a comment. Till next time - Happy crafting xx

9 Fabric Xmas Cards

I purchased a fabric Xmas card kit from C&C about a week ago and have managed to find some time to have a play. Each fabric topper is approx. 3 x 3 inches square and I added some stickles to give them some essential festive bling.  Here are the first 9 (there are enough toppers to make another 18,!)

Eighteen Christmas Cards from Two Sheets of Kaisercraft 12 x12

I am still on my mission to use up my large stash of 12 x12 Christmas papers and came across two sheets of "Snowflake" from the Just Believe collection by Kaisercraft. I have made eighteen quick and simple Christmas cards. These 12 x12 sheets cost less than a pound each, so a great way of making lovely cards if you are on a budget or are short on time.
