Happy Wednesday !
Another posting of recent work . Using the Tsunami Rose " Christmas List " digital kit, purchased from
The first image is of a Christmas themed bag . The papers are ideal for this kind of project . Lots of
ephemera ... and multiple images on the papers which can be fussy cut out . I am an avid fan of fussy cutting .
The first cards I made were made using 3D decoupage sheets . Before the were PRE-CUT . Cutting out all
the images is very relaxing I found . I used curved and pointed manicure scissors prior to decoupage scissors
evolving . I am showing my age here ...I really have been paper crafting for quite a while . It never gets
I do try to keep up with the times ... hence finding Tsunami Rose whilst searching " Digi Kits " on Etsy .
This is a whole new arena to play in. There are many designers . I have purchased from two or three . I
am by no means an expert . However I do know what I like . Quality , colour and value for money figure
into my requirement . I am delighted to say Tsunami Rose fits all.. To those who know me ., you will know I
advocate quality . I only recommend, what I have tried and tested myself . ( Hence my D/T work for
WWW. Handyhippo.co.uk . I also do some design team work for Scrimpingmommy at
Scrimpy'slace closet. )
There are of course many avenues to follow at an individual level. I firmly believe ... use quality affordable
items for a quality inspired end poject.
Sorry a little soap box rhetoric there ....
I hope you find the pictures inspiring . As always there is a video to back up the photographs .... just click on
the link top right of the page .
Happy Crafting . !

Happy Saturday ! Where did that week go .... ?
Today I am sharing three cards I have made on behalf of TSUNAMIROSE .
Who has a store on Etsy where these delightful digital kits and papers can be found . Over a period
of time I have purchased and worked with kits I have bought from this Etsy store .The Christmas Album posted earlier is on such kit . There are always special offers in the store . https://www.etsy.com/shop/TsunamiRose
I am delighted to announce I am now a part of the Design team for Tsunamirose . Also known on face book as Daisy Collins . A very talented Graphic design artiste who really knows how to put prints colours and ideas on paper .
For those who may not have purchased a Digital kit ....the process is easy . Purchase the kit or papers that you like . Once payment is cleared , the digi is sent to your email . Click on the files ...once opened print . You are, in no time at all , ready to get started on your project . I always print on the best setting ... which gives great definition and a clear and beautiful print out . The file is then yours . As usual you are requested to only use for your own purposes and to give recognition to the designer . I have also left the Tsunamirose blog link above. You will find incredible inspiration there .
Should you wish to see the cards I have made in closer detail as always "Click the Youtube button. "
I am currently working on another album . which will be a little while in the making ... I really enjoy the process ... having watched some great tutorials to gain some knowledge hints and tips . You are really never too old to learn new tricks .... I thinks there should be a university course in craft !! :) I know there would be many who would take up the challenge .
I am having a lovely quiet weekend this weekend . Just Me and my gorgeous fur babies ..... sighs ...
time to craft .
Happy crafting and thank you for stopping by .
