April Tags

These are the tags I have made for the monthly tag swap I am in through an internet group. I struggled this month to think of a topic, but decided as April is the first time I have ventured into the garden since last Summer, and as I stumbled across the gardener stamp that I have hardly ever used, I thought this was the ideal subject! The tiny flower stamps are by Hero Arts and the gardener is, I think, by Fun Stamps.

Purple Blooms

Yet another card made with the same paper from the 'bargain bin' mentioned earlier. The corrugated card is from the local Pound Shop - a great find by my mum who has always had the ability to search our bargains! The rub-on is from a Spring set purchased from The Works for just 99p. The only item I paid full price for in this card is the Papermania gems. Now I just need someone to buy it and I'll be on my way to making my first million lol.

Jigsaw Flowers

I made quite a few cards today using the jigsaw pieces and this is my favourite. It hasn't photographed as well as it could have - the great colours just don't seem to show up here. Oh well, I still like it!


Here's another card made with the 'bargain bin' papers I mentioned before. I have used jigsaw pieces from Lakeland (as previous) and coloured them with a Brilliance Dew Drop ink pad. The flower at the bottom is one of the Prima Flowers which are widely available.

Black & White

I made this card with some papers I bought from The Range in Bolton. I have used jigsaw pieces from Lakeland - reduced to half price. I used 'direct to paper' with Staz On in black then stamped an image on top with the same pad. The flower at the bottom is punched using an X-Cut punch with a Papermania 'gem' to finish off.

These are 2 ATCs I have made for a swap I am in entitled 'Men ATC'! The backgrounds are made using Tim Holtz alcohol inks. The stamps are by Hero Arts. The embellishments are also by Tim Holtz.

Lady in Pink

I just love this rubber stamp. I have in excess of 100 stamps but I keep going back to this one! The papers, I think, are by DCWV. They were in a bargain bucket recently at 10 sheets for £1!

Altered Pad

This is a notebook I altered with some Rob and Bob papers. The pad is from Asda and cost just 25p. I am quite pleased with the result!


A friend got me a pack of papers from a bargain bucket recently. The papers here are from the pack. They are all really bright papers and I love them!
