Hi everyone, and welcome to my blog. Hope you find something here you enjoy!
So, I suppose I'll tell you a little about me:
My name is Jennie and I live on the south coast of England with my two guinea pigs, Audrey and Jemima, and my very handsome spaniel, James - here he is:
See, I told you he's handsome xx
I've always loved crafts and more recently I've got into stamping and making cards. I just love creating something special for the people I love and there's nothing better, after a long week at work, than retreating into my craft room for some quiet time to myself.
I really love Polymer stamps and my favourite companies are Mama Elephant and Lawn Fawn - I love their cute designs, especially the animals. I also love the rubber stamps from Stampin' Up, as well as their great ink pads. I've collected quite alot of patterened paper so far and my favourites to use are from Crate paper - I love the retro, slightly distressed look and their pretty florals. My crafting must-haves are my American Crafts Paper Trimmer, my Crafters Companion Rock-a-Blocks and my Spectrum Noir colouring pencils.
It can sometimes be difficult to get a range of great quality craft products in the UK and I'm so grateful for my favourite stores (Make The Day Special, Hey Little Magpie and Crafty Charlie) for importing all of the best products from the USA.
When I'm not making cards or taking James off for a play in the park, I'm usually watching card-making videos on YouTube. I find Jennifer McGuire and Nichol Magouirk just so inspiring.
Anyway, I think that's enough from me now - James is giving me his 'can-we-go-to-the-park-now' look!
