Have you seen the papermilldirect 2018 Create a Calendar? It has a gorgeous Teal cover, and the beautiful heavy weight card that you would expect from papermilldirect. They allow you to make your own beautiful calendars whatever way you want, adding photos, creative panels – the only limit is your imagination! I created three months so far, keeping with a rough theme with each month. I have full details for these first three months up on the Papermilldirect blog.





Create a Calendar Part 1

Hi everyone,

You might remember my recent card using Pixi Powders, and the wonderful colours and shimmer they give. Well I loved making it so much I decided to make a Christmas card with the inspiration of the aurora borealis sky behind a snowman idea. The powders worked amazingly for this! I have a full tutorial showing how I made this over on the Papermilldirect blog. You won’t believe how easy the background was. The hardest part is waiting for it to dry. I really prefer the look of air dried over heat tool dried, so having patience waiting for it can be really hard!

In the meantime, check out that shimmer, don’t you just love it??

Shimmering Seasons Greetings

Hi everyone,

I have tried a new to me product on this project, and it was a lot of fun doing so. The product is the Cosmic Shimmer Pixi Powders. They sure do shimmer! I created this card below using them and Papermilldirect card, and kept the background made with the pixi powders the key focus.  You can see the powder colours I used, and how I made this card over on the Papermilldirect blog, along with a few other images that capture the amazing sparkle of them!


Celebrate with Shimmer!

Hi All,

I have a really cute card involving bees and a very fun stamp set up over on the Papermilldirect blog this week. I created a card last week that I liked the style of so much I decided to CASE myself on it – that is copy it but change it up a little bit.

So I used this cute Woodware Bee Happy stamp set, some gorgeous card colours and came up with this. Head on over to the blog to see how I created it!

Hi all,

I have a card shared over on the Papermilldirect blog today made using a selection of their card. It uses a really fun SVG of a VW bus and is a simple but striking card, particularly for those more difficult to make masculine cards. You can find the file I made and more details over on the Papermilldirect blog here.

Hi All,

I have a fun window card to share with you today. I used one stamp set to create the scene inside the window, with paper piecing, to give a fun layered effect. You could layer as much as you wanted on this one and have as much fun with it as you liked! I have some steps on how I did it over on the Papermilldirect blog so head over to check it out.
