Never cruised before? Then you're really missing out!


If you have never cruised before, then you are really missing out on a wonderful experience and we’re not just saying that! There are some things about going on a cruise holiday that you will not experience on a land based break; visiting some of the most beautiful places and only having to unpack once – now you don’t get that on every holiday!

Travelling really is one of life’s great pleasures, and booking a cruise is the perfect way to discover and explore a multitude of incredible destinations.



These are just a few of the things that we think make a cruise the perfect choice:

The Incredible Sunsets
You will get to see some of the most amazing sunsets at sea. Sunsets that you just don’t get on land. Imagine – you’re out at sea aboard a cruise ship, the sun is just starting to set and the only thing on the horizon is a boat in the distance… you probably don’t get to see that at home.

Food
The food onboard many cruises are superb and many dining venues at sea rival some of the best restaurants on land. You can eat around the clock (quite literally) and the majority is included in the cost of your cruise! Some cruise lines also offer all-inclusive options, so you don’t need to worry about taking extra spending money.

Amazing Destinations
Travelling via a cruise allows you to discover several destinations while only having to unpack once! There are so many incredible places you can visit and some of those places are not accessible by land – you have to sail the Seven Seas to reach them! You could go from the remote and relatively untouched landscape of one land to a family cruise in the Mediterranean. The choices are endless!

How To Give Used Candle Jars A New Lease Of Life

Hello again everyone, I have a completely different post for you this time!


I keep buying all this ‘stuff’ and it’s so nice I can’t bring myself to use it … but it’s starting to get out of control and taking over my home!!
So I’m challenging myself on 2 levels – 1) use up my stuff; and 2) try something new.

Well I had some empty candle jars so I thought this would be a good way to use up some stuff and try something new at the same time and this is what I came up with.

I am over the moon with the results as it’s the first time I’ve tried anything like this.

What I used: ·Empty candle jar ·Decoart white gesso ·Starlight paints ·Decoart metallic paints ·Imagination Crafts rice papers ·Imagination Crafts fabric glue ·Twine ·Raffia ·Hessian ·Ribbon ·Paper flowers and embellishments from craft box
Here’s what I did:
Firstly, I applied a coat of white gesso to the jar and allowed it to dry. I then chose a selection of paints that go together and randomly sponged all over the jar until it was covered. T…

How To Give A Contemporary Twist To Nordic Themed Christmas Card by Leanne McAlpine

Hello again everyone,
Today I’m sharing with you how to create a contemporary Nordic Christmas card using the new Nordic range from Crafter’s Companion.
This card is really easy to make and although I’ve used fabric you could easily use scraps of paper instead.
I have purposely not used even pressure when stamping the script stamp to give a more distressed look. I tend not to add sentiments to my cards until I’m going to use them so the sentiment could be placed anywhere on this card.

Here is what you will need:

●Card blank - I’ve used 6x6 here ●Hessian ●Nordic themed fabric ●Used drinks can ●Bird mixed media die from Nordic range ●Script stamp ●Co-ordinating ribbon ●Twine ●Button ●Sue Wilson holly branch die ●Kraft card ●Faux pine branch ●Gold glitter embossing powder ●Pigment embossing pad ●Heat embossing tool ●Die-cutting machine – I use Gemini
So here is what I did; Stamp script stamp using clear embossing pad to left side of card and cover with embossing powder; heat it to set.Cut a roug…
