Hello, my name is Dionne and I have been crafting for a very long time. As a very young child my mother tried to teach me to knit, it was a disaster. However, it must have sparked an interest in making things and, partly to prove that I was not totally useless and partly because I really wanted to make things, I taught myself to crochet. Over the years I have developed a love of cross stitch and all types of paper craft ..... I eventually even taught myself to knit.

I am married to a very understanding man, thank goodness, because I spend all my time either crafting, thinking about crafting or talking about crafting. I am hopeless at housework and dinner is often late!

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Here' my Heart ...... Again


Over at Crafty Boot Challenges the theme of the latest challenge is 'Blue and White'.  I thought I would get out my new Sizzix ATC die and have a little play.

I think this CAS design is one of my favourites, it is simple and quick and I think it looks stunning.

All I needed was white and blue glittered card, some flat backed gems and some glue.

Using my Big Shot I cut the white glitter card with my ATC die and the heart shapes from the blue glitter card using my Sissix Bigz die.



  1. Hi Dionne
    These look really beautiful. Love the clean and simple design. The texture from the glitter card is amazing!

  2. I love these! Such a great way to show off the blue and white theme. Take care Zo xx

  3. How gorgeous are these???? So clean and fresh and beautifully glittery. Both dies are fab and are going on my shopping list for when (not if!) I get my Bigshot. I only popped over to look at your bunting and I've ended up spending money!!!!

  4. So sparkly!!!!!!!! These are fab! xxx
