Well today is the day! It's the launch of the Craft Den design team!! I've been selected to be on the DT for the Den!!! Thank You Lynne!! I'm over the moon and I really appreciate it!! This is my first official post!!!

My card today is the Paperartsy stamps (tops & tails)!! I have also used the papers as well just love these stamps totally different from the cute ones I usually do!!

My last mention is LYNNE who was publicised this week in Creative Cardmaking (a magazine which is only available through good craft shops!!) if you go to page 26 you will see the one and only Lynne Hunter!!!! Well done Lynne, after all your hard work setting the Craft Den up over the last year things are obviously on the up!! xx

Copic class at the Craft Den

Was at the Craft Den last night doing Copic's!! It just came in handy as my friend Ratidzo was trying to get away with being 40, she didn't want anyone to know!! well I couldn't have that so I purchased loads of balloons, banners and a lovely tree with number 40 hanging on it!! have some lovely photo's of her eating her chocolate cake!! lol this is one of the images I coloured in which I finished when I got home. Back at the Craft Den tonight for scrap booking!! Blonde Moments again with the sweet little cars in brown!! will post that tomorrow xx

The Boys......

Well I'm back!! shattered from all my cleaning xx Had chance tonight to do a scrapbook page so I choose Blonde Moments in the spring fling!! these are such juicy colours but the picture's don't do them justice!! used some ribbons down the side and after I had cut out the flowers used glossy accents & dew drops all from the Craft Den.

Get Well Card for my Crafty Pal Kerry!!

Well this is my third attempt to blog this card!! tried twice last night with no luck (wouldn't even save it as a draft)

Went down to the Craft Den yesterday to see my friend Lynne, we had a good chat while we mounted our new stamps, cut them out then stamped loads of images! (and I mean loads) It's going to be a busy weekend colouring them all in! lol (Sounds quite childish colouring in!!) any way I picked up my new Leanne Ellis "Wish" stamp, gorguss girls a few more sugar Nellie's and of course added more to the copic's all these and my new Whiff of Joys from last week will keep me busy for a while or until the next delivery!!!

This is my new Leanne Ellis "Wish stamp" love this collection very artsy! Anyway this card is for my crafty pal/niece Kerry who is currently very poorly in hospital at the moment so I have added "you a speedy recovery" inside and it's sent with Lot's of love!!
Going to pop and see her today and take her a few crafty bit's!!
Well that's all for now need to get back to my stash as I may also do a bit of scrapbooking as well, (got all the blonde moments papers shouting to be used!!)

It's a boy thing!!!

Did this page on Thursday night at the Craft Den! This week we where all given the same papers and had to decide our own layout! We also used the new friskars punches Ribbon & treading water. So here is mine it's what all little boy's do!! they don't want there own toys they want the dolls!! This is Nathan who is now a fifteen year old with attitude so he'll love this!!

Scanned pictures!! how bad can it get.

Just don't look that close at the picture's, parents went on holiday and before I put my brain in gear when they said they couldn't find there camera I said take mine!! Oh my god take mine can you believe it! anyway I have scanned these as if you cant tell, but from today will be up and running again.

The card with the whiff of joy stamp was (Craft Den) for Laura who went on maternity leave yesterday!! the other card was for my nephews birthday a sugar nellie!!

Back to normal (fuzzy and not focused very well) but normal pictures tomorrow!

Thank You Card!

This is my friend Laura's gorgeous little girl!! MIA xx Laura finishes work this week for 10 mths maternity leave and so has asked me to do a scrap book themed Thank You card for her childminder (Just hope it's what she wanted)

My daughter thinks this fairy/angel stamp looks quite scary but I must admit I love it!!

These are Blonde Moments papers and stamps that came into the Craft Den last week!! I also used my new Polka Dot Frame (Frameabilities) and added some jelly tops and stickles.

What gorgeous paper!!

This layout I think is beautiful!! The picture is my husbands parents on holiday in Newquay a few years before they passed away. The paper is Paper adventures from obviously the Craft Den, lots of cutting out (which I love to do) I have shaped a few of the flowers and put glossy accents on, a bit of glamour dust and some dew drops all from the den.

Blonde Moments

This is my layout from last Thursday at the Craft Den (Scrap Book night) We did tearing & chalking!! Love the flowers we made can't tell you how therapeutic screwing paper up and distressing it is! (or how many flowers I have done at home this way!! lol) The picture is my niece's baby Ryley isn't he just gorgeous xx

Paper Artsy

Had a lovely day yesterday just crafting at my own pace after the cleaning of course!! So I decide to have a go with my Paper Artsy stamps and papers which I picked up on Saturday from the Craft Den with my Blonde Moments which I haven't even opened yet!! They are today's treat!! Had a great time building up the picture in layers and coloured them in with my Copic's never had a lot of really artsy stamps as not many people like them!! anyway I am hooked and may have to pop down today to buy inks & things to go with them. Here is my finished card (Husband said the card is ok but not keen on the script! does he not know anything!! lol)

Head in a spin!!!!

Well I don't know where to start!! Been to the Craft Den today for the all day crop, had a great day with Lynne, Anita, Norma, Joe, Kerry and my other niece Samantha(Who has never done scrapbooks before) We started off with this lovely Autumn colour page added a bit of lace, ribbon and did some inking and distressed stickles!! added my lovely girls with there Guinea pigs.

Page two is a Daisy Bucket paper which we have added two frames and a layered flower.
This is my daughter and Step Son on our holidays in Gran Canaria/Fuertaventura.

The last picture is me and my Darling Husband Allan it was taken on holiday in Hayle, Cornwall in 2001 which was a great year as we also got married in November xxxxx Lot's of tearing stamping flowers and ribbons.

Finally like I said my head was in a spin!!! As soon as I arrived this morning it was like Christmas only better because you get to pick what you want!! Blonde Moments do I need to go on!! Piles of papers, matching stamps and yes you've guessed thick embossing powders and pearls.
Then there was Paper Artsy!! Stamps and Papers well you can guess the rest!! All I can say is that if you are passing the Craft Den you Neeeeeeed to pop in!!! xx

Black Red & Cream theme

This layout is beautiful but I'm sorry my picture taking is not!!
We did this layout last night at the Craft Den! We did a bit of stamping (stamp is from Penny Black) with a glue pad and glitter for the bottom section before we did a bit of tearing, inking and sewing!! The flowers where stamped then cut out then we added liquid pearls and glitter for the centre's I added a bit of bling once I got back home!!
Can't wait for tomorrow its an all day CROP!!! so sorry there will be more badly taken photo's tomorrow unless I can get advise from my mate Lynne xxx
