Making a Start | Scrapbook 2017 |
Do I call what I do Project Life® when I don’t use pocket page protectors, albums and card kits? Yes, I make some free calendar cards for people to download, but my version relies simply on blocks with some added colour. This morning I put together four pages, using two […]

My 2016 Photobook Love Story |
Happy New Year! I hope 2017 treats you kindly and may you be as lucky as me and discover Photobook Love. You may remember I tried out the Photobooks app last year, printing the best photobook in the world – probably. Impressed by the quality of that book, my 2016 […]

Designer Pride | Catkins Cattery
I hope designer pride doesn’t go before a fall because I smile when I think “A little corner of England has my mark on it!” I’ve had proud moments before – three cross stitch designs in an Australian art exhibition was an achievement  – but I appreciate this one because […]

Halloween Cards and Tags 2016 |
Halloween celebrations in our home extend to my husband buying one of those big tubs of sweets – just in case any child dare knock on our door that night. Usually we are still eating the sweets at Christmas. At the end of last month Cathy Zielske produced a free […]
