Hi

Hi, Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!

In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!

Wedding Day

Hi, earlier this year I was commissioned to design Wedding Invitations and Friday was the big day, so out came my Nesties and my thinking head......


The colour palette coordinated with the wedding invites which made my project much easier as crafting and motivation is still a problem! AND, this new blogger layout is defo not helping! 

I have not been as idle as it would seem - I have also this week designed a new blog heading with Craft Artist - what do you think?

Good to hear from you and these are so beautiful - can't beat a nice bit of die cutting and embossing and the gentle touch of colour in the flowers is subtle. That's clever making your own blog heading in CA - is it easy to transfer it to the blog when completed? Not sure I'd know how.

Hi Ikki, it's been a while and I hope you are fine! A lovely design and I like your blog header but is it possible to enlarge it also? It would be great when it is as large as your blog width, then I can see more of you, LOL! warm greet Mirandax

Here you are! Like the new heading...it has a classical feel to it, you have to look twice to see its you!! Fun!
The invites are gorgeous, bet the bride was really thrilled.
New blogger interface takes some getting used to...but you will, persevere...if ouch angle back to the old one, you'll just resent it when they force the change on you!!

Hi there Ikki have just reverted to the old interface myself not sure how long I get to keep it but keep doing it each time they reset and has only been once so far.
I like Julia love the new heading great change.. and yes adore these invitations - the soft touches on the colours are just brilliant - have been quiet but glad to be back blogging - but dont feel very crafty at present either! will have to change though! thanks for sharing, Shaz in oz.x

Hi Ikky - It's already October and you haven't blogged since summer - is everything okay with you?
Love, Nessie
