I wanted to make my friend a lovely wedding gift, so I am making her a family scrapbook. These are the first pages I have made for her children. I am happy with them, we have exactly the same tastes so i'm sure she'll love them :)

3rd Tilda Card

The design brief was "Cute but Plain please" so I think I nailed it!

Gonna Miss you a Latte!

I made this "Gonna miss you" card for a colleague that left a few weeks ago (who is now back as a temp!!) Made with mocha, caramel and pale bronze cardstocks, I was going for a coffee-and-cream thing.

Dopey Birthday Card

Some might think it's a wee bit risky to send a "Dopey" Birthday card to your dad.. but I trusted he would take it for the good-hearted ribbing that it is :) He LOVED it, by the way :) Might seem a little plain for some of you but its how my dad likes em :)

Another Tilda Card

People who know me know that I don't use muted colours like this :) I'm all about bright and cheery! I do love this one though, really soft beiges and greens and my favourite (today) Tilda image :)

Tilda Card!

The picture of this one is a little bright but I am so happy with her :) I am personally very proud of my button and ribbon cherries!!

I finished my card :)

Hi :)

I finished my card! I'm really happy with it too!

I had aleady made my card base, (complete with eyelets! Look at my eyelets!) but wanted a larger image on it than it would have conventionally have taken, so I just popped the top out!

I LOVE this image and I LOVE how my colouring turns out with letraset ProMarkers!

Sunday Laziness!

Hi :)

I am usually really really bad at blogging, so i'm going to make a concerted effort to post more :)

I haven't made anything very much at all lately. I recently started a new job and it is INSANELY busy all day long, which is nice in as far that the days go fast, but it leaves me completely drained at the end of the day, so after I have made dinner and washed the dishes I basically want to put down roots somewhere and not move :)

I went out yesterday though and ended up in a Ryman stationers. They usually have a small selection of crafty stuff (all at premium prices, obviously) I noticed that they had some fiskars eyelet things. So I bought a couple of packs of mixed size eyelets and the pack of three eyelet setters. MAN these things are NOISY!!!!!!! They are basically two heavy bits at each end, joined by a spring so when you pull one up, you drop it down and it either punches you a hole or sets the eyelet. I can certainly see the benefits of the crop-a-dile if you craft late at night :)

Anyway, I just made a card base and put two eyelets in, it looks cute :)

I am going to finish it off today and will come back and post a picture later :)

I hope you have a great Sunday.

Mothers Day Card

I have to say, i'm Head-Over-Heels in love with these stamps. They are a little set of SU stamps and I keep finding new ways to use them, they were really worth the money.

This is all SU card (apart from the base) stamped using chocolate chip stampin pad from SU as well. All coloured in with Le Plume II pens which I continue to revert to and finished off with some yummy chocolatey brown satin ribbon that I am grateful I bought 30 feet of :)

Red, White and Blue Card Challenge

I actually had fun with this. The ladies on the UK thread of the Cricut MB had another card challenge this week. As you will know I recently bought a batch of Bellas, so I wanted to use one on this card. I would NEVER usually use these colours on a card so I am really really pleased that this pushed me to use a less familiar palette. I'm very happy with the results, I just added a little organza ribbon to soften the edges as all the colours are so strong.
