Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Inspired by Page 46

At last week’s Card & Cuppa we made a project that was inspired by Page 46 of the brand new Annual Catalogue. I find the Annual Catalogue is a great place for ideas, and I use it when my crafting mojo needs a bit of a lift. Instead of the purples on the original design,

A Variety of Vases

I’m sharing a previous Card & Cuppa project with you today that I have remade in different colours. This reversioned card is for my Godmother for a special Birthday.

Four Little Elephants

I realised that I hadn’t shared this cute Birthday card with you. It was for the son of a close friend, so I made these four little elephants to celebrate. It was the first time I’d used the Elephant Builder Punch and I fell in love straight away. There are two sizes of elephant and
