About me

Tropical Leaves 2

My name is Caroline, or Carrie if you wish, and I'm a twenty-something hailing from the Midlands, UK.  I have been creatively inclined for as long as I can remember; my parent's drawers are stuffed full with silly doodles and clumsy craft projects from my early days as a budding crafter. However it was only about 4 years ago I think I found my true crafting passion - scrapbooking. I could easily whittle away my weekends and evenings creating layout after layout to document my photos... the downside being that often I don't have enough new photos to scrap with! I recently became an official Maker for CraftLabel (previously Trimcraft) so expect to see lots of crafty projects using their amazing products too! I also enjoy card making, painting and drawing and customising clothing so there may be a little of this and that here and there.

In 2018 I got engaged to my wonderful fiance, Niall. The second I began wedding planning, I knew I wanted to try and DIY as much as I possibly could for our big day. I quickly discovered an online community on Instagram of other crafty brides and this inspired me to start sharing my makes online too - part of my reason for starting this blog!

Sadly our 2020 wedding has been postponed due to covid - but I'm still hoping our new wedding date can be a crafty sensation.

Hello lovely humans!


When I'm not scrapbooking or wedding planning, I can usually be found hanging out with my cat, Wispa. I enjoy reading, films, live music, walks and nature, and love travelling to new places when time allows - this often forms the inspiration for my scrapbook pages. I'm also a bit of a self-confessed geek - video games, comic books and even occasionally dabbling in a bit of cosplay.

Whether you've come to this page through a shared love of crafting, or stumbled on it completely by accident - thanks for reading and I hope you stick around!
