Now, on to my project! YAY!

I wanted to create a card filled with colour and vibrancy, so I reached for my Heffy Doodle Banana Split cardstock and used the new Pinstripe stencil to add some Mustard Seed Distress Ink to the background to create a tone on tone look. I ADORE this striped look. It really makes me think of scrapbook paper, I was always a ‘B’ side girl with the subtle designs!

Next I took some white cardstock and cut out the star shape using my Stitched Stars dies. I love that this set has a large star die, perfect for creating star shaped cards! I then reached for my Sprinkled With Fun stencil and used a small blending tool to ink some candy style sprinkles on my card. I thought this actually started to look like a cookie, so I layered another kraft coloured star underneath, slightly offset so I could go with this theme!

For the sentiment, I used some pink craft foam, but first I stuck the foam to some cardstock before diecutting with the Celebrate Heffy Cuts die. I find that this helps prevent the foam from stretching. For the ‘YOU’ sentiment I used the new Rascal Alphabetters stamps and dies. OH, I LOVE that these have coordinating dies! You should really check them out! So fun and whimsical!

Thanks for stopping here and for hopping along. For your comment, why not tell me your favourite item from the new release! Mine is the Absotoothly Awesome Card Kit – such excellent value for money, and I love that you can choose to have it with dies or without dies! <3

Big hugs,



Hey gang!

I am so excited because for two days, the teams over at Honey Bee Stamps and Heffy Doodle are joining forces for a two day INSTA HOP! WOOP!

This means that you can WIN WIN WIN! Instead of hopping along visiting blogs, it is simply a hop along instagram profiles – simples! To start the hop visit the Heffy Doodle Instagram profile, and start clicking your way through masses of inspiration.

Honey Bee Stamps is very close to my heart because I was on the Honey Bee DT a few years ago, and I also got to go to Creativation for the first time with these girls! I am so honored and delighted to join forces for this hop- i am considering it a big crafty hug via instagram!

This card was made using the Swimming By set from Honey Bee Stamps and the manta ray is from Heffy Doodle Oceans of Love. I have also added a sentiment using the Heffy Doodle HEY Heffy Cuts die. I cut it from craft foam, covered it in glossy accents, and then sprinkled it with some very fine glitter for a shimmery feel!

Thanks for popping by, and please join the instahop.You have until Wed 26th Sept to enter, and winners will be announced on 28th Sept on the Heffy Doodle blog. Oh… and the prizes are gift vouchers to both the Heffy Doodle and Honey Bee Stamps store.

Happy hopping my friends!


Hi everyone, another catch up post… 😀

This week I had a surprise package THAT INCLUDED CRAFTY GOODIES! WOOHOO! Best. Surprise. Ever! 🙂 My friend and DT Sista Jessica McAfee sent me a parcel will some goodies. Not only did she send me a gorgeous stamp set from The Stamp Market (my first one from this brand!) but also a set of Aqua Markers by Spectrum Noir. As i managed to get a bunch of copic second hand a few years ago, i have never used spectrum noir alcohol markers before, and i certainly hadn’t tried this aqua collection either. I knew i wanted to test them out on my ComeCraftWithMe LIVE stream.

I also treated myself to some new stamps recently, so i also used some of these in the other projects, but i couldn’t wait to get started with the aqua markers.

This Flora Bella set from The Stamp Market is lovely. Whimsical and bold, and they were a good size for creating a background. I stamped it all over some card and then used the aqua markers to color them in. I scribbled the aqua markers onto some plastic and used a water brush/ brush to pick up the colour mixed with a little water. It kinda acts like an ink or watercolour paint in that way. You can also mix the colours really easily. There were no greens in my set, but the yellow and blue can be mixed to get lots of variations on tone. This means one set goes a long long way.

I finished the card with a I MISS YOU sentiment and also the HEY Heffy Cut from Heffy Doodle.

I was so excited about this card. It features the Rub-a-dub-dub set from Lawn Fawn. I waited for ages to get this stamp. The photo makes it look a little neon – I promise it is not like that IRL) 🙂 I used the stitched bubble background from Heffy Doodle to create a fun background and then created a floor using a border die from MFT stamps. I added a little ink along the edge of Heffy Memo tape to give my ‘bathroom’ some dimension. I’ve used the Heffy Doodle strips of ease dies to create the sentiment panel.

By this time in the evening, it was getting pretty late, but I really wanted to make another quick card with my new Chameleon stamp from Lawn Fawn. Lucky for me, I found this gorgeous rainbow chevron scrapbook paper in my stash which I knew would make a perfect background. A sentiment strip cut using the Heffy Doodle Strips of Ease, plus a quick sentiment (from MFT I think) and then I stamped the chameleon onto the same chevron paper and lined him up perfectly with the background- after all, he has activated his camouflage mode! LOL

Three cards. One live stream. One tired Heffy. 🙂 To watch the whole video on playback, check out the video below.
