Thank You

Hi All,

I had a few people to thank the other day, so made some quick and simple cards.
They are 7cm square and I've used some of the new products and colours

Thanks for looking

Hi All,

I'm so glad I bought this set...........I LOVE IT!
There are various cards on the web, that I've seen to get  ideas.

The 1st one is brayered, the next is just plain with embossed sentiments and the one below, adding colour using a waterbrush on whisper white cardstock. All images have been stamped in black Stazon.

I think these 9.5cm square cards, make perfect little notelets and are so quick to produce. I've daubed the colours before adding accents with either markers or a white gel pen.

So many you see I just can't leave this set alone ; )

Thanks for looking, happy crafting

Hi All,

Isn't it hot! 
My husband said I shouldn't moan, I told him..........if I'm cold, I can add more layers, but when it's as hot as would be indecent if I took anymore off! He agreed : )
Anyway, I thought this picture would 'speak' Summer. They are delicious, it was definitely worth netting the tree to stop those pesky blackbirds enjoying them, yum yum!

I have been crafting, here are a few cards I made using the 'Serene Silhouettes' set.  They each use a different technique; there's daubing, straight stamping, colouring with pens...........

.......embossing and brayering. The colours are Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and the retired Lucky Limeade and Baja Breeze

Above the oval has been pierced and below I used a marker pen through the holes in the piercing template

Thanks for looking,

Happy Crafting

Make 'n' Take

Hi All,

Here's quick and simple card idea, it's using 2 of the colours which won't be available after the end of June, Baja Breeze and Pretty in Pink.
The background stamp is from Creative Elements and the sentiment is a single stamp called Beautiful Birthday. I've pricked holes for added interest and then...........


........the card is quickly finished by fraying some seam binding ribbon, adding butterflies and pearls.

Happy Crafting,

Anniversary Card

Hi All,

It was my Wedding Anniversary yesterday, and did I get whisked off for a wonderful day out, a lovely meal, lavished with chocolates or flowers...........


Even the sun was shinning, birds were singing and it was lovely and warm; so what did I get upto.......standing on the bottom of the ladder so he could finish painting the outside of the house!

I wish I'd taken a photos, but here's the ones of the card I made him instead. 
I've mounted some of the hearts on acetate to add extra dimension

Hope you've enjoyed, thanks for dropping by

Change of Colour

Hi All,

Thought I'd share with you another card I've made, it's the same layout as the previous one, but in a different colour. I just love the depth of the Concord Crush, don't you? It'll be a sad day when this colour retires at the end of June : (

Whilst surfing the web (sorry can't remember who it was), I've come across a clever little box using the base of the Pop n' Cuts die. The slots make a neat closure...........

 ......and to open, you simply just pull on the ribbon

I love the simplicity and can see I'll be making loads of these to house little gifts for my friends

Thanks for looking, happy crafting

Simple Card & Gift

Hi All,

I've finally got around to photographing some of the projects I've been making.
Here is a simple A5 card using the Oval Framelitis and Fun Flowers die. The main colours are Pacific Point, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight.
For the gift............I've tried to make it look like a book. The concertinaed sides allow it to have the height to incorporate 2 bars of's great, the men in my household don't think crafting is my chocolate is safe!!
Thanks for looking, happy crafting
