Best of 2021

I thought I’d have a scroll through my photos and pick out a few of my favourite projects from the past year. It’s been another fabulous year for me working for Sizzix, and I’ve been lucky enough to work with so many gorgeous products. The designers are Sizzix really are a talented bunch, and when I looked back through my photos it was hard to pick just nine photos.

The shows I did in the summer with the crepe paper flowers were a real highlight – having never made crepe paper flowers before this, I was amazed at how much fun it was.

Another highlight from the year was the Botanicals collection from Lisa Jones. Florals are always inspiring to me, and this collection features all my favourite colours. The whole range is beautiful, so this was another show I really enjoyed doing.

2021 was another fabulous year of releases from Eileen Hull. Her journals are some of my most-used dies, and she came out with two fabulous journals – the Folio Journal and the Full Size Journal, as well as some very clever dies to create extra elements such as a waterfall.

Happy New Year, and thank you for following me this year on all the various platforms. 2022 is going to be an exciting year for me. I am giving up my PA job to concentrate full-time on my crafting, so you will be seeing lots more of me – as well as doing more work with Sizzix, I’m planning to do lots more on my YouTube channel, I have so many ideas, and I can’t wait to have the time to put them into action!

I’ve listed below most of the products used on these projects in case you want to find them.

Sizzix Eileen Hull new releases

There are some lovely new dies in the Sizzix Chapter One release, and Eileen Hull has a really fabulous new journal die. It’s called the Folio Journal, and it creates a lovely square journal with lots of options to configure it in different ways.

As it’s easier to see in real life than photos, I’ve put together a couple of videos. The first is an overview and shows you her new dies, and the second video is an in-depth tutorial to make the journal above.

So here’s the first video

The second video is here

I just love the versatility you get with this die, and I think it’s going to get a lot of use this year!
