NEW – Online monthly paper craft workshops!! 

I am literally so excited to be announcing this! As part of my exciting new adventure with Stampin’ Up! I am over the moon to announce that you can take part in my monthly workshops, right in the comfort of your own homes!!

You simply need to go to the page HERE and enter your email address, then each month I will email you details of the workshop which you can chose to opt in or out of. If you want in then you will receive a PayPal invoice and be entered into a secret group, your workshop kits will arrive the week before the workshop date.

Over the course of the weekend I will release the workshop videos (which will be exclusive to the workshop participants) and we will have challenges and games including bingo. It is totally up to you how much you want to participate, you can chose to wait and do everything after the weekend or you can craft along with me!

The products to these workshops will all be Stampin’ Up! Products worth £20, if you are a total beginner then you can chose to have all your products cut and scored, if you have a paper trimmer or want to put your own twist on projects (or maybe you have another use for one of the items) the the crafter option is for you.

Each month there will be an option to upgrade and receive the stamp set too, you just need to message me before the cut off date so that I can add this and any other products on to your order!

Each month we will make a variety of products from the following;

Gift bags

Scrapbook pages



Happy mail

Mini albums


Gift boxes

Paper baskets/flowers

And many others. You will be told in the monthly email, prior to enrolling, what range we will be using, what you will receive in your workshop supplies and what we will be making. I am also happy to take requests!

I am really excited about this venture and I hope you are too, don’t forget you must sign up to the newsletter (I promise to only mail you once a month) to enrol!


Unboxing : January UglyBug Planner and Stationery Box

As it is the 3rd January now and most people will be receiving their boxes any day now I thought I would do an unboxing on my blog and YouTube channel. The boxes normally go out on the 27th of each month and cost £15 including postage. They have a different “theme” every month and have a variety of stationery and planner accessories in them.

This months box was “Shine like a Diamond”, the boxes all come out the same with the new branding on them now that we have transitioned over to Ugly Bug Plans. The boxes are available from my Etsy store (this months has sold out) Februaries box “Dare to Dream” will ship on the 27th January.

Sometimes the boxes are all colour coordinated but this month I have gone for “bling” as a theme and who else would best appear on some blingy stickers that Audrey Hepburn.


There are 3 sheets of planner stickers and a half sheet of word/phrase stickers.

The other items in the boxes are a purple “gemstone” washi, gem stone post it notes (various colours), rose gold coloured pen with large gem on the end and a 2017 motivational planner charm/keyring.

I had planned on adding a dashboard to this months kit but logistically that would be a nightmare, from now on all the monthly boxes will be a generic size and there will be “add ons” available to purchase separately.

You can view the unboxing video HERE which also includes some footage of me talking about my future plans for my YouTube channel and it also mentions a competition to win this box which you can find details of below.
