Colouring Pages are brill!

Wow!  It’s been a while, hasn’t it, since I last blogged but I’m not going to make excuses…..other than sometimes life gets in the way!  Whoa, profound, eh?
Well, today is like no other.  I’m still going at a million miles an hour….but today I have the added bonus of it being “NEC Day”!!!  CFMF WHOOOOAAAA!  I’ll be on my way shortly, girls (I’m the driver) and don’t worry….I’ll slow down, a bit!
So, just a quick share today and to shout….Colouring Pages are brill!  I was a bit worried when a friend asked for a card for her great grandson, with the theme of farmyards and tractors.  Nothing in my stash for that, but after a lot of pondering, I came up with this:
It’s a stepper card made with Crumb Cake CS and layered with Marina Mist and Certainly Celery DSP.  Then I’ve printed, coloured and cut out the animals and tractor and added them to the different steps.  Here’s a close up of the layers:

So, hope you like it.  Now….off to the NEC!


  1. I tried to find instructions or a template for the way you did your stepper card, but everything I found was with a large panel in the middle or to the side. Could you share some tips on how you folded your card? (I like yours best of all I've seen)

  2. Hi Amy,
    This is made with 2 A4 pieces. The first is folded into an A5 card blank, the second is folded in to A5, then both sides folded back on itself (to the crease) to make a 'W'. This 'W' is the stuck to the inside cover of the first A5 blank. Finally, the front is folded down to create the front step. I hope this makes sense. I couldn't find your email address to send pics, but feel free to mail me :-)


I'd love to hear what you think....thanks for looking :-)
