Welcoming . . .

Erica aka Ericraft

Hi (waving) My name is Erica and I live in sunny Victoria Australia. Since I was a little girl I was always crafty. My Mum always said you could give Erica a piece of paper and she would draw all over it and never go off the page onto the table. I still love being creative and love drawing, colouring and papercrafting. My weapons of choice are pencils. I love to push the boundaries with stamps and make a card based around it. As you will see from my creations I try and make them blend together as a whole almost making the card part of the image by either giving it a background and/or adding die cuts. Like a piece of art I guess. 

I run a small business from home while juggling family life and fitting in my DT projects. You can find me on Instagram @ericabruton or my blog ericraftblog.blogspot.com for my latest creations.

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing!  From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week! 
 If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps   at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug

~ Sponsor #2 ~

A Day For Daisies provides themed categories of over 3000 digital illustrations, including fairy tales and magical mermaids, cutie kids, vintage illustrations, sentiments and lovely designs for all occasions!
