Shop is live and running

Hello everyone. Thank you to everyone who was on this journey with me. I am happy to announce that my shop is open and running now and you can make online orders!

If you require or looking for something that is not on my shop page, please get in touch and I can decorate or up cycle pretty much anything. All items are decorated with a decoupage technique using high quality acrylics and varnishes.

Please visit me on:

http://doticrafts.co.uk/

http://www.doticrafts.com will be working soon as we are waiting for the domain from my blog to move.

My shop had a blog build in so you can still follow me there.

On this occasion I would like to thank everyone who was visiting the blog and supporting me on my craft journey. I still make cards as this was why this blog has been created, however my life involves around something I have fallen in love with and want to evolve more, decoupage!

Thank you to all the followers and see you over at my shop!

Christening Card

Hi all! I have had a lovely couple of weeks. My little bundle of joy had his Baptism and we had a brill time. It was my little girl 4th birthday as well so very busy times.

I have not forgotten about blog but didn’t have much time or energy to follow up new post. I am back again and hope that you can join in with me.

So, I have made another card. This time for Christening. It was an order from my mum for a little boy. I have used various papers, ribbon, flowers, gems and of course special sentiment in Polish. Hope you like it hugs x

Baptism Invitation

Oh dear, can’t believe it’s been a month since I have posted last time. Days go so fast that I can’t wait for the next year holidays now. Kids were sick last two weeks, now it was my turn so I am all snotty and blah.

I have been doing a bit of crafting as currently looking into decoupage. I have been studying the basics, got few products I will need to use and raided carboots for cheap items to decorate 🙂

Also, some may know or some may not, but we have decided to baptize Benjamin. The special day has been booked for the 27th October so on that day we will celebrate that and also it’s Suzis birthday. Can’t wait! For this occasion I have made invitation for our family. I have kept it very simple but still nice and tidy.

Christening Card

Hello all! I have missed being on the blog but somehow I couldn’t find energy to sit and make cards although I really wanted. I went to Wales this weekend and have been taken to a dream craft shop with never ending supplies and here I am again.

This time I have made a card for my best friends daughter’s christening. Gabriela is my future daughter-in-law as me and her mum decided that Ben and Gabriela one day will be a unit 😉 we are laughing about it but we never know, maybe they will like each other enough to be together…how romantic!

Ok, so this card has been made based on this sketch 20130902-002804.jpg

I have used grey, silver, pink, purple and pastel yellow papers. Papers doily, heart on which I have stamped Holy Christening of Gabriela in Polish with hand written date (unfortunately I don’t have small stamp numbers ;(). It’s finished with white satin roses and a ribbon. What do you think my lovely crafters? hugs and have a lovely night! xxx

Congratulations on your wedding!

Hi all! I have not been here for a while. Just busy life I guess and a lot has been going on. My driving exam is nearly here…scary! I am doing my lessons in a mini now and I love it!

I hope you all are having a fab summer holidays and for those who are at work, well me included, rain should compensate the fact of that 🙂

My newest card has been made without a purpose really, I was trying a new technique and its still not looking perfect but at least I have tried. I have used few different layers of brown shiny paper, ribbon, die cut heart, music notes, corner and leaves. Oh not to forget about the oval frame. Picture has been stamped and painted with t-shirt paints (I know, crazy me!) and liquid pearls that I have brushed together with some glitter on the brides dress. Few flowers and pearls and that’s my new card. Hope you like it. Sorry for the background but this was a very quick post so and I didn’t have much time to use my black background.

20th Wedding Anniversary

Evening to you all! hope you had a lovely weekend with your family and friends! We had my mum over to help with the kids and on Sunday we went for a trip to the lake. It was lovely.

The rain has settled over Manchester therefore I had some time to do my sisters 20th Wedding Anniversary card. There is 18 years gap between me and my sister (I am the younger one obviously :)). Last year she had a long waited baby boy, Adam and I can’t believe she has been married for 20 years! What a result. I wish them all the best for another 20 years 🙂

I have used the following sketch for my card
