My Calendar

This is my calendar I have just finished making. The papers are K and Co. As much as I love the kids bringing home theirs from school we need a big one to write appointments on, so this is it.

Party Tilda

This is what I have been up to today. I needed to have a play to keep me sane, lol. So I thought I would play with my new party Tilda stamp and my new Prisma pencils that are for Christmas off hubby. The 'Happy Birthday' is actually in purple metallic but as usual the scanner doesn't like metallic.
This will probably be my last post before Christmas so I would like to wish all readers a very Merry Christmas and if you are a crafter I hope Santa brings you lots of crafting goodies!

Here are a couple of Tilda cards from me that I made last night. These are just about to go off in the post to a couple of friends. The papers are from my glitter stack that I bought a while ago and haven't dare use, like you do. Both images coloured in the marvey le plume.

This is what Fallon and I have been up to this weekend. She had friends over Friday evening for a play and this is what we all did. Fallon enjoyed it so much she wanted to make some more over the weekend. This year she wanted to make special cards for her close friends at school. I think she has a natural talent at crafty stuff.
This is my attempt, I really like the blue theme. The flower is actually silver mirror card not black as it has come out in the scan.

Butterfly necklace

I have just completed this necklace for a friend's birthday, she just loves anything purple/lilac. It is one of my own designs which I love to do but find it hard to just sit and design with lack of time. It is made with swarovski crystals and a crystal butterfly.

Criss cross cards

I did manage to make a couple of Criss cross Christmas cards last week, just got round to posting them. Sorry the scans are not very good, must learn to use my new camera more often.

Proud Mum

I must be one of the proudest mum's. My daughter came home on Friday with a BIG smile and a very large cushion plus waist coat and told me she was STAR pupil in school. They get to bring these items home, well to carry everywhere with them for a whole week. I am really very proud of her for all her hard work. Just look at the lovely smile and BIG cushion!

I think this is a great idea to reward pupils for such hard work and dedication to their studies.

Thursday, 4 October 2007

Not much happening on the crafting front at the moment. I have both my little darlings off school with a tummy bug. Hubby is no help what so ever, but then what man is, lol. They are through the worst I hope. And tonight I might get a full night sleep instead of five minutes here and there. Oh well I must attend my craft class and do a demo of how to make criss cross cards, which I am so loving making. So simple but very effective. Must take a photo of some that I have made last week. Oh well back to the grind stone as they say, keep blogging.

Bex's Challenge - Trimming the Tree

Well this is my first challenge and I have really, really enjoyed doing it, so much so I couldn't stop. This was the challenge
'Your challenge for the next few days is to make 5 Christmas cards featuring Christmas Trees - any shape, any style, any kind of tree! These can be 5 different cards, or 5 all the same, it's up to you.'
Well here are my five, sorry but they are all Pink Petticoat papers which I so love at the moment.

Tent topper Cards

These are my attempt at the tent topper cards. I like their style, something different.

Both are made using Pink Petticoat, my favourites at the moment. Coloured using Faber Castelle pencils and Sakura stardust pens. The sentiments are those clear little rubber stamps for £1.49 and the frame is cut on the Cricut and edged with organza ribbon. i must try and get to grips with my new camera as the scanning doesn't do these cards justice.

Cuttlebug EF

I thought I would share some cards made using the cuttlebug embossing folders. I think these are just fabulous and have many ways of use.

Monday, 17 September 2007

Its been a while since I last posted but hopefully when I get time to scan some cards, I will put them on here for all to see. Hopefully today, just need to do some boring house duties.

Friday, 31 August 2007

This is what I have made today, well I have made two for a friend. I just love altering these books. They are left blank down one side for the recipient to doodle on if they so wish.

Thursday, 30 August 2007

This is another new card just made today. I have just discovered these on other forums/blogs. I got the design from one of Laurie Unger's blog. I think they are fabulous. I think it still needs a little something though, not sure what yet.

Altered notebook

Today I have been busy altering a notebook for my little girl, ok she is not so little now. I thought it would be nice for her to go back to school with as she will be in her final year at junior school. I have used a book that I bought from Morrison's and then decorated it with some scrummy papers from again Pink Petticoat. From this
to this

Christmas Cards

Well I have been busy making Christmas cards. OK I know there is months to go before the BIG day but I really do need to start early. So I have been busy using Pink Petticoats new Christmas designs, I think they are FAB.

I just love these bold prints, never been a fan before until now. But boy are they gorgeous.
I didn't have any Christmas ribbon so thought I would make my own. I printed a strip of text and then cut it out. Placed my famous DST (double sided tape) onto the back and stuck two different coloured card onto the back and trimmed leaving a border. So simple really but effective.

First time blogging

Well my sister has been on at me for ages to create a blog or my space. Well I have finally took the plunge and started one. Don't know where to start really, should get some pics on here for you to see what I make. Well off to do just that.
Back soon.
