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.

Oh Christmas Tree

I recently saw a card where someone had used a die to emboss directly into the card, it was very effective and I thought my new Christmas Tree die would be perfect for this.

I was very impressed, it was quick, easy and quite sophisticated.  After running the die through by Grand Calibur, I added some colourful flat backed gems and a sentiment from Kanban Crafts.

Next year everyone could be getting this card from me!


  1. Beautiful! Loving the embossed tree into a card. It looks really elegant.
