My precious daughters birthday card!


Hello Everyone

My Beautiful Daughter Ashleigh is 21 Today and here is the birthday card that I made for her. 

I didnt see her reaction as she is in Preston at university, but I knew that she would like it, as I used her favourite colour, can you guess which one he he!

I called her this morning and she is thrilled with her card and she is having a great day with all of her uni friends!

I used Celebration Tilda and a key to the door charm, as it is tradition and I used my precious daughter sentiment which is just perfect. I bought the Precious Daughter paper to use on this card. 

Its a different style for me, but I like how it turned out







The flowers are from WOC and the papers are from L&L Crafts - as always!!!

And Here she is!!! The Birthday Girl herself, Happy Birthday Sweet Heart xxx

Have a great week, Crafty Cuddles Jay xxx

Bohemian Peony Tilda, she is beautiful isnt she! I adored her from the moment I first saw her!


As I am sure you know, I have mixed roses from the ribbon girl, WOC and Berries and rolled roses from L&L crafts. 

The beautiful Lace on the bottom layer is from Jules House of Ribbons and the top Lace is from Live and Love Crafts, I also used a couple of tickets behind Tilda. They are elements from Pion paper also from the the same store. 


The chipboard double lamp light is from Scrap and Craft on line store.

I have coloured her with copics and distress inked the edges and frantaged the die cut frame in shabby beige.


A closer look at the beautiful florals and below I have used Gesso and DI's to age a brass heart frame with some ideology wording and one of my build a bees!

Masked Chic Fringe Tilda

Hello Everyone, 

Here is my card featuring Chic Fringe Tilda, masked with one of my Magnolia Backgrounds.


I thought that she would match the stone pathway background as the flower she is holding is very similar in shape.


All coloured with Copics and I have also used Joy Craft Dies for the grass and clouds.


As always, roses, apple blossoms and sweetheart blossoms are from WOC and beaded sprig, pink pearl trim and frosted berry are from L&L Crafts.
The chipboard happy birthday are from Unique Crafts. 


I dyed my own lace with several different greens, sorry that it isnt very obvious, all three papers are from my Wet Paint papers, they are absolutely gorgeous!!!

I think I must have used roughly 3 dozen copics colouring this image, but I really enjoy the colouring aspect the most, so I enjoyed doing it.

Have a great week and I hope that you have a sunny day where ever you are.

Sakura Tilda and Background



Hello Everyone, 

I hope that you are all well and looking forward to a crafty weekend!

As I always mention our weather here in the UK, today it is raining, yesterday was a mix of sun and rain and the day before was the same as today. So I have been inside a lot of the time and created this card for fun.

Here is a card featuring Sakura Tilda from the Sakura 2015 collection. My oriental background was especially stamped for me by my wonderful friend Yvonne. Thank you Yvonne :) xx


I have hand cut my card and the butterfly border and ornate border are both from Joy Craft.


I have coloured up the back ground with Prisma Pencils using the Low Odour Technique, melting the wax in layers to create shading. 
Tilda is coloured up using Copics.


My flowers are from WOC, as is the gorgeous bling in the middle of my Magnolia Doohickey. The gorgeous lace is from L&L Crafts and the beautiful ribbon rose trim (which is quite unusual, as it satin) and seam binding are from Jules House of Ribbons! I have used some Lilac Butterfly Magnolia paper for all of my die cuts and I hope you like it. 
Thank you so much for dropping by and have a fab weekend!
