Hi everyone,

I was playing around with my watercolours and wanted to try creating a galaxy background like I have seen a few people trying. I am quite happy with how it turned out.  I wanted to do something with the background and loved what I had seen in this video here by Sea Lemon with a Geometric Constellation pattern. I decided instead to cut a geometric animal shape and adhere it onto the panel. I cut this from Papermilldirect White Super Smooth card. This made it pop out really nicely against the background.bunny-1

I stuck this in a white frame and stuck it up on a picture ledge in my craft room. It is hard to capture in the frame, because of the reflection on the glass but it really gives it a nice finished effect.bunny-2

Hi all,

I have a step by step on how I decorated my February page from my Papermilldirect Create-a-Calendar page over on the Papermilldirect blog. I used some Silhouette cut files, some stenciling, distress inking and doodling fun. I am really enjoying these calendars, they will be a brilliant reflection of what I was doing creatively in 2016 when I go to use it in 2017!



Make sure you head on over and see exactly how I created this page!

Hi everyone,

I am sharing a card today that I have up over on the Papermilldirect blog. I am still trying to get one Christmas card made a week and this new Mid Green Papermilldirect card made that very easy. It works wonderfully paired with the Intensive red card and some white ink and snow stenciling. It is a easy and fun Christmas card and full of Christmas cheer!


Christmas Card Fun

Hi all,

I have a step by step on how I decorated my January page from my Papermilldirect Create-a-Calendar page over on the Papermilldirect blog. I used a SVG Cuts free file for the happy new year and champagne glasses, and then just had fun inking, splattering and decorating!nicole-jan-9bI even used a shimmery viva decor pearl pen to add some champagne bubbles!

I hope you enjoy and do swing on over the Papermilldirect blog to see the full how to on creating the page!

I had to make a wedding card recently and wanted it to match the colours on the wedding invitation, and be bold, and striking. The invitation was in kraft with red ribbon so I used these colours for my card, with the white as the pop to make it stand out. I went with lots of layers and pearls and details to make it look elegant and luxurious. The sentiment is a Silhouette cut file that cuts beautifully on some Papermilldirect smooth white card.


Hopefully the bride and groom liked it, I know I really enjoyed making it!

Hi all,

I have this card up on the Papermilldirect blog with details of how I put it together. I used a free stamp and die set that came with a magazine. I love anything pineapple related so this was a keeper for sure. I may have tracked down and bought the magazine just for the stamps if I am honest🙂 I used the new Papermilldirect hemp embossed card for this project and the texture of it is just wonderful. So head on over to the Papermilldirect blog to check out the full details on this card and find out more!

Pineapple Birthday Card

Hi all,

It is getting close to that time of year again – Halloween of course! I love this holiday, it is one of my favourite ones to craft for. I have this cute tag treat holder up over on the Papermilldirect blog at the moment, showing how I created it. It is a great little easy way to give some sweets, and works great as place settings for spooky parties or in treat bags too. So head on over and check it out if you want some more info!
