So Sweet!!!

It was my usual Thursday night scrapbook class last night at the Craft Den and as always it was a great layout. Had a lovely time as usual with great company and new face's last week we had a new lady called Kelly who enjoyed it so much she was joined by her mum Lynne.

We did the Bo Bunny paper's "My Darling" cut out the fab shape and layered onto the green with the faux stitching around the edges. On the main shape we cut round the flowers so that we could put the picture behind them once we had done this we once again used the pearl pens lol xx punched out little scallops for the flower centres and used some crafty notion glaze for the pink petals and some of the Green finished it of with the words "SO SWEET" as it's my baby dusty who is just so soft the Tiger Lily uses her as a bed!!

Don't they look so cute!!

Desk Tidy!

Well I've gone of track again!!

Started this desk tidy a few weeks ago (another Ikea purchase) first I painted around the edges with a raspberry dabber when it was dry I painted blonde moments crackle glaze and then the final coat was a cool peri dabber, you can see the great effect on the last photo!!
I then cut out all the side's, back & front and all the insides with the blonde moments suet pudding papers. Finally I did a fairy for the front but couldn't face putting a picture of myself on so did a cat face!! I said it was a desk tidy but don't know where it will go as the desk is full!!! lol xx

Out of my comfort zone!!! well nearly

It's my niece Kerry who has a birthday tomorrow and as we go to the craft den together we have loads of stamps which are the same so I thought I'd go for distressed!! Well I nearly made it but as you can see the bling got the better of me. I used my distressed inks for the background colour and stamped round the edge's with Tim Holt stamps some faux stitching around the edges to finish off. I have then stamped my Stampotique stamp by Daniel Torrent straight onto the background then stickled it and a chandelier in the corner with you've got it gems!! Well I'm nearly there, hope you like it xx

Well this is my first ever Halloween project!! even though I love Halloween as its my birthday. I have found loads of bloggs that just focus on this date that have some really individual inspiration.

Wednesday nights class at the Craft Den we made this wonderful circle "hanging" can't for the life of me think of the correct name!! lol xx We used distressed inks to do the backgrounds and the I used Tim Holts background stamps! we where supposed to be using lovely flowers and flourishes & masks to make this but I decided to be a little different!! I also used Tim's seasonal grunge (can't tell you how excited I was when I realised there was Halloween in this not just xmas) also used stickles, glossy accents, fibres, blonde moments ribbon and my vintage Halloween stamps from Artistic Outpost. Really please now it's finished.

Blonde Moments & Sizzix dies

Had a really good night last night (as always) at the Craft Den. The layout is with a lilac bazzil background with the circle done in Blonde Moments paper, did lots of faux stitches and flowers with the sizzix die, retro punch in three sizes and a martha stewart punch, doodled on the flowers and used the pearl pen from Viva which is Lynne's favourite product at the moment lol we also used a sizzix die for the flourish and then used the white pen to go round it!! I had a new picture of Danielle and Tiger Lily which goes beautifully with the colours and the layout!! Lynne's had a gorgeous picture of Little Ava on it, hope she posts it she's so beautiful xx

Its my favourite Leanne Ellis Wish stamp with Bo bunny paper's, flowers, a spacer & a lovely pin that I have had for quite a while and never used (as I think they look quite dangerous!!) and couldn't resist the prima bling. Nearly forgot my new martha stewart drippy goo punch been after this for ages!!

Another Birthday

It's another niece's birthday this time it Samantha's. I have used Blonde Moments papers on each card!! Cut different shapes with the nesties, stickled round edges and popped a flower on each card the pink one is made with the same papers as the card it's just different sized circles scrunched up and sanded. I did have a little mishap with the orange card but luckily I spotted it when I was loading the picture ready to use!

Only one more sleep until Harrogate tomorrow can't wait as it will be the first time I have been, starting early booked a class with Dyan and my crafty friends doing a large Xmas tag can't wait, although I do feel a little bit bad as it's my OH's birthday and I'm leaving him on his own!! will post him birthday cards tomorrow (if I have time) lol xx

September !! It's just one birthday after another xx

Not blogged for a few days, but its September and that means one thing every one's birthday in this family seem to be this month so I'm hard at work making all these cards.

Today is my niece's birthday and her dads so the first card is with my gorjuss girl stamp coloured with the faithful copics and papers by Kate Knight "Wild Blossom" I have even cut the flowers from the papers and used the paper candy from craftwork cards for the centres the second one I did for here was a Leanne Ellis "True Love" stamp with craftwork cards papers and a flowers and brad from my stash.

This Betting La Pashe decoupage is for my brother in law "suits in down to the ground" and guess what great minds think alike as my crafty pal (my niece Kerry) has also made this one for him!!
