Fabulous fashion

Hello and welcome to my blog

I've been putting the scan and cut through its paces 
I've had this katey Sue cd a while 
It's called fabulous fashion 
I've printed off the cd 
And the scan n cut has done the cutting 
Pretty clever 
So after playing I had to make it into a card 
The pearl drops are dovecraft 
They drive me crazy they seem to hold the point
My favourite are tonic 
So I'm going to stick with them 
Happy crafting

Scan and cut project

Happy Easter to you all 
Hope you've had a great weekend 
Today I'm sharing my first scan & cut project 
As you know I went to the hobby craft show 
Well hubby talked me into having a scan n cut 
And I've been learning a lot 
But this is pretty simply 
But I thought it was effective 
I cut the letters out several times and glued them together
I matted and layered the card cut out shevrons 
Added tattered lace sentiment and some card candy 

Happy holidays

Happy Easter



Just a quick post to wish you 
All in blog land a very happy Easter 
It's a beautiful day today 
Ive had a potter on the garden 
Wishing you all a fabulous weekend
Don't eat to much chocolate 
Hope you like my Easter tree 
It was for the lounge 
But no chance of that 
The kitty's thought it was for them 
Couldn't even get the eggs on 
Cause of the little devils 

Happy holidays from the Easter bunnie

More tonic

Hi again

Today's card is made with perfect day semi die set 
I doubled the one half up 
And used the heart out side edge
To cut it out of the card 
I backed it with pail purple 
Added a ribbon 
And the matted and layered on to dotty card 
The pearl drop are from tonic
There my new favourite thing need more (lots) 
The tag I stamped and the flowers were from my stash 
For the as you like it bingo board I picked
Purple,ribbon and pearls 
Perfect combo I think

Docrafts Art Deco

Hi all 

This is another oldie 
But a goodie
One of my most popular 
Pintrest pins 
I made this form stash I won  
Over at docrafts 
Art Deco isn't really my thing 
But I really enjoyed playing with this kit 
I love the embossing folder
And the papers and images are all 
From the die cut decoupage kit
Hope you've all had a fab weekend 
We popped over to the Telford international 
To see my sons car in show 
I must admit he's done 
Amazing work 
It looked stunning 
He's worked so hard on this 
And in unlike many show cars 
He drives this every day 

Here's a few pics from today 
Of all his hard earned money and time 
Thanks for taking the time to look

Happy crafting all

When your envelope matches your card

Hi fellow bloggers
Today's card I made for a friend 
A while ago now when she lost her mom 
I'm not sure who the stamps by
The die cut is spellbinders
And I added an angel charm 
The paper pads from my stash
 j'adore by first edition paper
But I do love them
I made the box envelope 
On my envelope punch board 
With the same paper
Hope you like it.

Top gear pop up

Hi all
 Anothere one for the boys 
A pop up box 
I used the mimic creations cd 
From the card hut
For the characters and sentiment
The cars are docrafts stamps 
And papers are very old from my stash 
Guys cards are always tricker than girls 
Mainly I think because our stash 
Is always full of girly stuff 
And the market doesn't really 
Aim much for the guys 
But I do quite like making the guy cards 
I'm going to continue sharing 
Past makes I'm enjoying looking back my self 
And it's nice to have a record to
I hope you are enjoying them to
Next I will be picking 
Some of my most popular on pintrest

Great docrafts ink pad for altanew stamps

Hello again 

I had to share this one 
As you've seen I've had the 
Altanew vintage rose stamps,
And I don't really have a huge stash of ink pads
I bought a few for the roses
And winged it a bit on the leaf
But I was in the range the other day 
And I found a docrafts ink pad 
And I'm over the moon with it
It's perfect for the little leaf stamps 
The pick above is me playing with it 

Five shades of green
Just perfect and I think it was only £2.99

I hope this helps
I know I don't have an endless budget 
And this is a brilliant way 
To get 5 shades with out breaking the bank
I thing I shall be looking for othere
Shades in the range to 

Happy crafting

Hello it me again 

I thought I'd continue to share
Some of my past make 
And as it was Mother's Day yesterday 
I thought I'd share one for the dads
I was so chuffed with this one 
My hubby keeps marine fish 
So I made a pop up box out of acetate 
Added a boarder top and bottem 
Stamped some little fish 
Added some gooley eyes 
A bit of sea weed and a message 
And a few little bubbles to finish 
And there we have it 
My fish tank card 
Hope you like it 
If you visit I'd love to hear from you 
If you like what you see
