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.

Hang your Christmas Stockings

I am sure there must be a song about hanging your Christmas stockings.  Answers on a postcard please ....

I had a little play with the shape of my Christmas cards.  I used some of my decoupage toppers from  Hunkydory to decorate these cards.

I really love shaped cards and this is one of my favourite die sets.

I had to photograph it from a different angel so you could see the other panels.

I was playing around with this card and bitterly regret not getting my scoring board first, I would have got much sharper creases if I had.

You can see the decoupage from this side view.



  1. Wowsers. These look as if the stockings are actually hanging. Beautiful glitter and shine, so Christmassy. X

    1. Another favourite card die but so hard to photograph.
