Sugar Buttons

Good afternoon, hope you are all having a happy Easter! Today I wanted to show you the cards I made a while back for a demonstration using the Sugar Buttons range from Kanban. I really liked this range when I first saw it but I think I'm going through one of those phases where you're not pleased with any of the cards that you make (I hope I'm not the only one who feels like this sometimes!). Sorry about the photo overload but I wanted to share them all to try and show the different products in the range so I'll be showing 6 cards tonight and I'll be back tomorrow with another 6. Hoping to find some crafty time this evening so fingers crossed I'll make a start on my scrapbook pages. Bye for now. x

Best Mum and Dad in the World!

I know I'm probably being biased but I have got the best Mum and Dad in the World so tonight I'm sharing a photograph of their 40th Wedding Anniversary card (apologies for the poor photograph!). Their anniversary is tomorrow so I hope they don't check out my blog tonight and spoil the surprise. The card is made using the docrafts Papermania Art Deco range. At first I didn't like this range as much as their 'Strictly Party' which I have used lots of times but this one is really growing on me and I am finding more and more occasions that it is suitable for. I am hoping to find a bit of time to craft tonight as I received a delivery today from Craft Island. I ordered lots of different 12x12 papers as I am hoping to get into scrapbooking too, wish me luck! Happy Easter!

Birthday Girls

Good evening everybody! I had a busy evening last night making 2 cards for my daughter to give to her friends. April is a very busy month for birthdays so I'll be making a lot more cards over the next week. I'm not sure where the images are from as I've had them a while and the papers are from my ever increasing stash. Tonight I have tidied up my craft stash and have found lots of things that I'd forgotten I had got (don't you just love it when that happens).
Anyway, I'm off to read my 2 new craft magazines and eat a bit more chocolate (well it is Easter!). Goodnight. x

Wedding Day!

Hello everybody! Hope you have all had a good day, I've now got 2 weeks off work so I'm very happy! Tonight's card is a wedding card for friends of a friend. I'm not sure on the colour scheme for the wedding so I decided to use neutral colours. The image is from the Digistamp Boutique and was coloured using Promarkers. Hoping to find lots of time to craft over the next fortnight as I have lots of projects started but have not had enough time to finish them. I'm off to watch tonight's Crafters Companion launch on Create and Craft. To buy or not to buy, that is the question?!

Birthday Card

 Good evening all! Tonight I'm sharing a card that I recently made for a friend of a friend. It is sometimes difficult to make a card for someone that you don't know so I kept it simple with a butterfly theme using soft colours. The papers are from the docrafts Papermania 'Strictly Party' range which I love and have used lots since I bought it.

Demo Day

Good evening! Apologies for posting photographs about Christmas but I wanted to show some of the cards that I made using Woodware stamps. I love Woodware stamps and am always spoilt for choice when they release new ranges. I occasionally demo for Osbornes Stationers and this was a demo day that I did at their Cotteridge shop. Unfortunately I didn't take any close up shots of the cards but I did manage to take a photograph of the table before all of the cards fell down!

Mother's Day Gift

Good afternoon all. Today I thought I would share with you the Mother's Day gift that I made for my mum. I used a box frame (from The Range) and created the heart using lots of flowers (punched from a Tonic punch). Most of the flowers are glued flat to the paper but some are raised with gems added in the centre. The letters are from a Sizzix alphabet die (I use this all the time so it won't be the first or last time I mention it!). Enjoy the rest of your day!

Pirate Joe

Four posts in one day must be a record for me but I am really going to try and get up to date and show all the cards that I have been making. This is a birthday card for my nephew who turned 4 last week. The image is from the Digistamp Boutique and coloured with Promarkers. The water is a Memory Box die which I had been contemplating buying for a while and when I came up with the idea for this card I knew I had to have it. I think it will be very useful and I am sure that you will see it on lots of cards and projects in the future. That's all for now, I'll be back tomorrow with more to share. x

Christmas Birthday

This is a card that I made for a friend's mother who has a Christmas Day birthday. I know that I am a bit late sharing it but with all this snow I didn't think that it was too inappropriate! It has felt a bit Christmassy over the last few days and they even started playing a Christmas song on the radio yesterday! The card was made using a precoloured topper from The Hobby House. I love these as they help to make a quick card look professional. The papers are from my stash and I can't complete a card without adding flowers or a bit of bling.

A very special birthday card

Here is the birthday card I made for my daughter's 5th  birthday back in November. The image is a Crafters Companion Toreads stamp coloured with Promarkers. The papers used are from my stash. The alphabet dies are from Sizzix and I use these all the time to personalise my cards. I might be back later to share some more cards.

Let's have a blog makeover!

Hello all! I cannot believe that my last blog post was July 2012!! Where has the time gone! I have still been indulging in my passion for papercraft but life has been very busy and I just haven't found the time to post my creations. Well I've decided that I'm going to try and update my blog on a regular basis (I know I've said this before) so I've given my blog a much needed makeover and will be back later with a few of the cards that I have made recently. Have a good day!
