American Crafts

Hello everyone,

Just a quick blog post for you today as I’ve got a million and one things to do and seem to be treading water somewhat.

This week, we celebrated my middle daughter’s 18th birthday! She has an amazing year coming up and I am super proud of everything she has achieved to get here.  To reflect her coming year, I bought some gorgeous travel themed papers and embellishments from American Crafts. Their ‘Shimelle’ range is just adorable and perfect…  cameras (for her love of photography) world maps (for her love of travelling) as well as cute alphabet stickers made to look like an arrivals board in the airport!

With this in mind, I made a stepper card and just threw everything I could at it.  You know by now I don’t do minimalistic cards!


The American themed papers suit her year ahead so well


The world map makes a perfect backdrop



Wooden planes and cameras fly above the card on strips of acetate




The inside of the card wasn’t left out…

I can’t believe I now have two children over 18… one to go 🙂

Catch up again soon people… I’m off to deal with my washing! Take care,

Heather xx
