Card using ribbon, hand made tassel

Hi everyone,

Happy new year.

As we head into the new year, I am happy to announced that I am back on the Design Team at


Archiscraps.  It is a terrific challenge blog that inspires you from architecture. It is run by Julene Matthews.  She comes up with some terrrific inspo.

You have to be inspired by this pic and use a tassel in your project.

I didn't have any tassels in my stash so I made my own.

I simply used some white ribbons. It was really easy.

I made a card this time round. I took inspiration from the colours in the pic and also I added a silhouette of a head.











The prize this month is a ribbon pack. I love ribbons. I have a large collection so it was great to use some for this challenge. Hope you choose to join in.

A Christmas Card using non-traditional colours

Ho ho ho. Just like that it is December.

Have you decided to make some Christmas cards? This is the first one that I made this year.

The challenge at Unstampabelles for December 2017 is to do some zentangling. This can be as hard or as easy as you like. It's a lot of fun, give it a go.  Plus the twist is to make it Christmas, but non-traditional colours.

I've made my first Christmas card of the season.

I've used a stencil of a Christmas tree and some metallic pens to do the outlining and zentagling.



I've added a sticker sentiment mounted on to some really pretty silver sparkly cardstock. So the colours I've used of purple, silver and aqua make for really non-traditional Christmas colours. Had to make the star on top gold of course.

I look forward to seeing what you make.

Happy crafting,

Dale x

Masculine birthday card



Here we have a card I made today for this month's challenge at Archiscraps.


This is the inspo photo and you need to use knots.  I have two.  They always find such quirky insp pics.

Above is the challenge at Unstampabelles this month. I'm usually fairly decisive in general. I'm a Libran and quite balanced. It's my birthday month. Yay. In fact my birthday is on Saturday and I'm having a big party. Looking forward to it.

I've created a layout using the line ribbon, buttons and flowers.



The photo is of my pussycat lying on top of the clothes I have laid out ready to pack. She also loves to lay on top of our suitcases when we get them out.

Thanks for looking and I hope you decide to join in.
