1st blog of 2015

Hi all I would like to wish everyone a very happy new year.
In November last year I decided to give up crafting as I lost my mojo and interest. 
And this week I realised i missed it so much so here I am making cards again and I am so happy. 
I got the new Thelwell cd rom from crafters companion as I fell in love with it and I made the fold over card which is from the cd rom. I  used pearlised card stock in yellow and pink and cut them down to 5 1/2 inches x 11 inches and folded it in half then matted and layered using black card stock.
I used from my stash the pearl & gem stones. And I used a dragonfly punch and cut out 3 gold and 3 matching card stock for each card. 

Also I have been on a diet and I have shred 5st and 1lb and hit my target in 8 months I am so pleased of the new me as I feel so much better x


  1. A huge welcome back Sam, it's wonderful to see you not only making cards, but blogging too! The fold over cards are brilliant - love the dotty paper - take care xx
