I have a post over on the Sarah Hurley 365 blog today showing you how to use small stamps in a stamp set as a focal image on a card. I hope it will inspire you to look at your smaller stamps in a new light, and use them for focal images when you may not normally think of them! Head on over and check the post out and see what I did to create this card….
I am teaming up with an amazing artist called Patience Brewster today to talk about Christmas in July and how I plan on celebrating it this July. We all know in the crafting world that Christmas crafting starts in July so I was already in Christmas crafting mode! When I was looking on the Patience Brewster site at their Christmas ornaments I saw one that instantly inspired me to create a card. This adorable Dash Away Santa ornament made me think of where would Santa go after he was finished delivering all those presents?
So I coloured him a cute gingerbread house to come home to rest in when he was done! All the colours in the card were inspired by the ornament, they are such perfect Christmas colours, really warm and welcoming too. You can see a full tutorial here on how I created this card.
They are having an AMAZING competition over at Patience Brewster that you really need to check out, the prize is just so fantastic! You can find it HERE. Have you started your Christmas crafting yet, in preparation for the seasonal rush? Or are you still enjoying summer for the moment?
Happy crafting and happy Christmas in July!
I am stopping by today with a project I made for the Create a Smile stamps birthday celebrations. They have turned one and are having a big birthday celebration to mark the occasion!
Here is the card I created to join in the birthday celebrations. I used some of their freebies they have up on their blog here. I have a step by step on how I created this card over on Guidecentral HERE.
Make sure to check out the birthday celebrations over on Create A Smile stamps and see all the fabulous images they have!
I have a post up over on the Sarah Hurley blog today showing how I made this card. Head on over and check it out! Oh and this is my 1000th blog post on my blog!

I just wanted to share that I have a new Tutorials page on my blog. You can find it HERE.
I have a lot of tutorials I have created through my time running Crafting Ireland along with tutorials I have made for on this blog. I have been looking for a way to collate them all easily and streamline them easily for presenting. I recently decided I would use Guidecentral to do this. It allows me to have all of my tutorials in one place, and share them with an even wider audience. I have stated the process of uploading them, and streamlining them. In the meantime you can visit my tutorials page by clicking HERE or on the images below. I also have a link on my sidebar.
I hope you enjoy it!
Thanks for looking,
I have a post over on the Sarah Hurley blog today sharing how I made this fun card….head on over if you want to check it out!
