Just a message about following by email and an altered file folder

Surprise, surprise, another post from me so soon after the last.
Let me start by saying a big thank you to all those who have been in touch and told me how sad you are I don't blog regularly anymore.... OK, I hear you and will try to blog more often again.
Meanwhile, a special hello to those of you who signed up to receive email notifications when there is a new post here.

If you are blogger yourself who uses email subscriptions, you may have read that Google is discontinuing Feedburner as a tool. Feedburner is what has been in charge of the Blogger Followers gadget, sending out email notifications to those who have signed up and activated their subscription.

So this is just to let you know that if you are a follower by email, you will (hopefully!) continue to receive those notifications, but they will now come courtesy of

You shouldn't have to do anything special. When you get an email, you can just click through to visit me here at my blog, just as you always have done. You, the followers, will also get the chance to alter how you receive your notifications if you want to, which couldn't be done with Feedburner. But that's entirely up to you. If you don't want to change anything you don't have to!

If you follow by Bloglovin', I think everything there should just continue as normal.

And if you'd like to start following by email, you'll find a brand new green button to do it in the sidebar. All you have to do is click that button and then put in the email address you would like to receive the notification to.
I was so cross about another change being forced on us by Google, and I was really worried about the changeover, but thanks to the whole thing was so much easier than I was expecting! I can't say enough good things about the staff I've communicated with. They've handled the whole process for me, and made it all very simple - and the basic service is free. 

If you are also a blogger, and haven't yet sorted out how your email followers will hear about your posts after July, I would strongly urge you to check out and get in touch with them.

Well, after that intro, here is a quick project I can share:
It's an altered file folder, cut to about 6" high, folded accordion style and then decorated with tags, stamping, stencilling and so called Mu Print on Stickers. With the bits of the folder I cut off, I created pockets to hold further tags and ephemera. This will make a great insert for a larger journal, or can stand by itself.
Scroll down for further pictures, and happy crafting.
A side pocket  with matching journal card
Two further tags, all decorated with the print on stickers mentioned above.
Another side pocket, using the same fairy I used in my previous postcard post. It was a scan from one of the Cicely Mary Barker Flower Fairy books that I scanned, reduced in size and then fussy cut.

This journal card was decorated with washi stickers, I love how they just blend into the background.

And here finally is the back of the cover.
Well that's it for today and thanks for your visit.

Sunday Postcard Art - Flower Fairies and a freebie

 Hello friends and visitors, hope you are keeping well! It's been an age and a half since I have last posted, the reason is that really I am not into blogging anymore, and only blog now when I have been asked to do so. And like my last post here, I was again invited by the lovely Mandy to host another Sunday Postcard Art Challenge, this time with the theme of Flower Fairies, as the title of my post suggests. So here goes, my Flower Fairy Postcard:

I decided to choose an image from one of the wonderful Flower Fairy books by  Cicely Mary Barker. 
I love these fairies, they are so sweet and whimsical. So I cut a piece of card to size, created a background collage with strips of washi tape and scrapbook paper and then simply fussy-cut some other images, including the fairy of course, to try and create a balanced collage. It turned out quite busy, but I just went with the flow, without too much thinking, and this is the result...
Below some details still.

Now, because I know many of you started to follow me because of the freebies I sometimes share, I have created a Flower Fairy one for you, specially since it's so long since my last one.

If you would like to have the full resolution one to print, please email me, but please only use them for personal use!

Well, that's it for now, - short and sweet. I cannot say when I will blog again, it may well be a while, so if you are interested to see more of my work, the best place to do that is via my Instagram

And if by any chance you would like to play in the postcard challenge, all you have to do is CLICK HERE

Thanks for your visit and happy crafting,

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
