Pink Floral

Hello Crafters,

I'm very happy today as my little one is now back home from his trip.. He had a great time and missed Poppy and the PlayStation the most lol. He's a very tired little boy now though..

I also have some Happy news to share with anyone that missed my facebook post the other day...
I am delighted to announce that I've been chosen to join the Hunkydory team, as many of you know I absolutely love using Hunkydory products so really can not wait to get started..

For todays share I have a couple of cards made with a hunky-dory kit from my stash..

I made both of these cards for an order.. I used backing card, toppers and sentiments from the kit. Then teamed them up for coloured card, ribbon, gems and peel offs from my stash.


Have a good weekend all

Magical Makes

Hello Crafters,

Hope you are all well. I've not had the best two days, really missing my little man so looking forward to picking him up on Friday..

I've been trying to catch up and work my way through stacks of unblogged cards so today I'm afraid its a photo heavy post (you might want to go grab a cuppa, if you tend on reading all this post lol)

Before I stepped down from the Crafter's Companion DT I was very lucky to be asked to make a
selection of cards for their Crafters Inspiration Magazine issue 14..

The brief was magical makes, so after having a little play around with the design here is what I came up with. I'd never tried any of these before so it was a great challenge and quite enjoyable and satisfying. Has anyone else made any of these style cards before?

For all of these cards I used elements from the FREE CD that comes with the magazine and the FREE stamp set that also comes with this issue.

Together with Centura Pearl card.. I coloured the images with Spectrum Noir pens

I embellished with ribbon and pearls from my stash..


Thanks for stopping by today.

Have a good afternoon

Quick and Easy Wedding makes

Hello Crafty Friends,

How are we all?? those in the UK enjoying the heat wave :-/

My youngest went off on his residential trip yesterday, his first time away from home. I'm sure he is having a fab time and not missing home at all - ME on the other hand feel lost without him here. :-(
Roll on Friday afternoon when I can pick him up lol

For todays card share I have some very quick and easy Wedding cards, I made these using some old toppers I found in my stash (I think they are Kanban ones but not 100%)


I used cream linen card for these with Crafters Companion Centura Pearl card. I embossed the background on the top card using Crafters Companion florish die from one of Sara's signature ranges.
Finished with bits of lace and ribbon from my stash..


Thanks for stopping by today
Have a good day

Pink and girly

Hello bloggers, 

How's your Saturday been, the weather has been wonderful here but I've spent most of the day in the office transferring digi images over to the desktop from my laptop as hubby will be using my laptop for his garage work next month.. Hoping the weather is good again tomorrow so I can get a few hours in the sun with my boys..

For today's share I have an easel card made using an old LOTV art pad image.. I used Dovecraft back to basics papers. 

Sentiments printed fo m the computer, embellished with button, wooden number and ribbon from my stash.

Evening everyone and happy Friday

Hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend.

I apologise now for the photo heavy post this evening but I'm working my way through stacks of unblogged cards and today I have some from the twilight range from Hunkydory. Oh how I do love these wonderful scenes and images

I purchased the little pack of shadow box card set.. they are further down on my post, but in thta s were the circle toppers that I created these set of five cards (unfortunately when I posted these out to my customer, Royal Mail decided to send them walk about so these have now vanished into a big black hole) lol 

These next few cards I made using the little book together with the twilight backing paper/card..
Embellished with some ribbons from my stash.

Here are those shadow box cards I made using the kits.. these are great fun and so easy to put together, 

And finally we have some more cards made using he little book images. Teamed with the coordinating papers. Finished with some sentiments and gems from my stash 


Thanks for stopping by today. 
Have a great weekend

Good evening bloggers, 

I can't believe it was Monday when I last posted. The week has flown by so much, I'm hoping that next week does the same too as my youngest is off for his first residential trip, I'm going to be a moody so and so next week. Lol

Anyway for today's share I have a custom made engagement card..

I used the lace heart create a card die from Crafters Companion as well as the hearts and champagne glass die both from Crafters Companion.

I used Centura Pearl pink and white, I embellished with gems, rhinsestones, pearls and ribbons from my stash.
