Lavinia stamps fairy home card

The Fruit Pixie has just started stocking Lavinia Stamps, a British company who make fantasy style stamps. Now I am not usually drawn to Fantasy style stamps but I really likes these.  They have made their own stamping  DVD that demonstrates scene stamping. I have done a full review on the Fruit Pixie website -

  After watching the video I had to have a go myself. Here is the card I came up with after watching the DVD

Both the Lavinia DVD and stamps are available from The Fruit Pixie online shop

Wax Collage

I have had my Melt Pot now for over 8 years and when I bought it I got the project pan as well as I really wanted to work with wax.   Umm I hate to say it and I hope Hubby isn't listening but this is the first project I have done using wax!!!!!!!!!!!!   I did have loads of fun with it though and I am sure it won't be 8 years till I use wax again....Famous last words!

     So here is the wax collage I made using products from The Fruit Pixie, who I design for. I have made a step by Step post on the Fruit Pixie blog with some tips and tricks for working with wax so please take a look.

The wax and paper set are available from

Homage to Hundretwasser

February on the AJC the muse was the Masters, our favourite artists. Well my favourite artist has to be Hundretwasser and I used a lot of his paintings as inspiration but Black girl, discovery in the kingdom of Toros was the main one.

    I created all the papers on my Geli plate then die cut the circles. The fairys, toadstools and words are from Tumblefish Studios.

    I am so pleased with this page I might have to make a larger one on a canvas for my wall.

Sherlock Holmes Cards

It is so good to be back in my craft room again!! Unfortunately I have been ill for over 5 weeks battling migraines which I never thought would go away but it looks like they have for now and it feels so good to be myself again!!!!! :)

    I have been palying with these fun Sherlock Holmes stamps from Creative Expressions talented Sam Poole. As my friends know I am a HUGE Sherlock Holmes fan ( the real one not the film one, don't get me started on that subject ) so I loved this set!

This wonderful stamp set is available at
