Quirky Stitching xx

Been playing with my new toy!! but I think I need more practice or I could just go with the flow!!!!

These are two cards I have done for my niece Louise who's birthday it was yesterday xx The first one is with the new Bo Bunny papers called "Delilah" which is now stocked at the Craft Den I have added flowers and a brad from the same range a bit of bling and a hat pin from my stash

The second one is with the Blonde Moments papers I have added two beautiful big flowers, a sentiment and a Prima centre

Triple D Decoupage

Had a go with the decoupage this weekend that was new in at the Craft Den!! They are from Triple D and I must say they are lovely this one is called "I love Apple Pie"

To go with these Lynne has also got the card (seen in the picture's). I have used some acetate on the oval so it looks like a frame/window and to finish it off there is also a insert on the sheet with the sweetest verse xx A sentiment & flower and that's it!!! What could be easier xxx

Think I've cracked it!!

Oh no not again!! (Why does everyone want big cards!!)

Any way I think I cracked it with this one, 7 Gypsies papers (8x8 pack) put together with a sugar Nellie Breast awareness stamp!! Love these papers the colours are just beautiful used my favourite page with the chandelier and layered it with the black paper used some very glam ribbons in the middle. Out came my nesties & punches a little bit(lol)of my precious bling, brad & charm xx I have stamped my image and coloured in with copics but I have paper pierced the dress with the same papers and then used some glamour dust. After I had put it all together I then went round the scalloped edge with the yummy pearl pens. Anyway customer was very happy!! and I got more order's xxx My stamp is a limited edition from Sugar Nellie (A must have purchase) all other products used are from Lynne at the Craft Den xxx

Christmas Card update!

This was Wednesday nights class at the Craft Den from last week! As there was only a small group of us Lynne had us making xmas cards with the new Blonde Moments papers. We all ended up with different cards as we just choose which of the toppers we wanted (I wanted them all but had to share lol xx) Added some glamour dust and ribbon to finish them off (was really pleased 5 finished cards).

Paper Artsy

Today I have been very good and I have sat and stamped images for two hours ready to colour!! This is because everytime I need a quick card I never have the right image so I thought I would sort myself out and get well ahead.

Coloured a few in then decided I'd had enough colouring and wanted to make cards. This one is with the lovely christmas fairy from Paper Artsy (Ann kindly let me stamp a few with her's) I have coloured her with my copics and put it together with the Rum & Raisen paper's (beautiful not only for christmas you can use some anytime) I used my new Cornice MS punch down the edge of the card and matched it with a strip of paper, I then cut out my image on my nesties and layered it with a different paper from the same set.

I have used my Glamour dust down the side of the punched edge and new Pearl pen in light blue (you must check out the Craft Den for new colours in these) on the scalloped nestie.

Finally I have cut out snow flakes (shapeabilities - snowflake wonder) and covered them with glamour dust and new Cosmic Shimmer "Glitter Jewels" and added a sentiment. Overall I am very pleased with the fininshed card xx Everything that I have used is from Lynne's except the Fairy stamp but I have it on very good authority that it's on it's way!!!!

Lot's of spraying of beautiful ink's

Had two great classes this week at the Craft Den. Wednesday night we did Xmas cards with the new Blonde Moments Christmas papers. We had a really good night and to make it even better Ann brought the biggest box of chocolates!!!! Will post my picture later for my cards as I need to put the finishing touches on!!!

Last night was the scrap book night and we used the black & white GCD flock papers we could either do a layout that was my sample for the papers or do the papers but use the inks on well I chose the inks and they look fab!! pictures just don't do these inks justice but believe me they all looked fab!! Added some bling and a beautiful die cut flower.

The final picture is a card I made for a lady at work for her daughter I must admit that my friend came to my rescue with the coloured in image (thank you) and I put it together with the new Kitchen Spice papers from Bo Bunny, beautiful flowers and a sentiment.

Flower Fairies

Christmas cards again. Thought I have a go with my flower fairy Rose and colour it in Christmas colours, brought out the copic's but then thought my Blonde Moments pearls would colour them perfectly and added a little bit of glamour dust.

The first card I have cut out the image in the circle nestie and added stickles round the edge, bazzil card and rectangle nestie shapes for the background and the flowers where made with a snowflake punch and a little gem in the centre leaves are my branch Martha Stewart punch.

The second card is the same image coloured in with the Blonde Moments, Bo Bunny papers a few gems and blonde moments buttons, a bit of ribbon and a sentiment.

Off to make my Halloween Atc now xx

Saturday 10 October 2009


Had a great day at the Craft Den (as always) we did scrap booking all day!! 3 layouts!! that's what we like (seeing as we have so many books on the go) The first page was with the new black market paper's the pictures really don't do the papers justice as they are so yummy!! This page is for Isabella's christening day, we took so many photo's but ended up with none of her on her own in her fabulous dress (dare I say very expensive dress lol xx but well worth it as she looked gorgeous) Added the little bit of bling and used Lynne's favourite pearl pens.

The second page the background is Wisteria Papers with the lovely PrimaVera flower paper from Paper Adventure. cut out the flowers and I used the pearl pens for the centre's this is a page for Billy who I found asleep in a plant pot outside and was very annoyed when I woke her up to the the photo's.
The final page is once again wisteria paper (obviously) cut out the falling wisteria I added stickles to the flowers we then added the flourish which I inked with distressed inks more Pearl pen and some punched flowers. This picture is my sister Tracey with Danielle's on her christening day (we left it a bit late she was 13 mths)

and to end a lovely day Ava arrived just before it was time to leave in a beautiful little knitted dress with matching tights and hair band. So just had time for a little cuddle and a few kiss's xxx

While I was down at Lynne's I had a look through her Joanna Sheen Cd's and found this beautiful image!! While I printed it out Lynne made me the 8 x 8 card, we matted and layered the image and put the backing sheet's on then when I got home I started to cut out the forget-me-nots!!! quite a while later I glued them into place and added a little blob of gold stickles xx A beautiful little cherub in the corner, new in this week at the Craft Den and a bit of ribbon. Really love this card as the image is just what I wanted.

This card is from the kids it a beautiful picture of Isabella when she was first born!! These are the new 7 Gypsies papers also new in this week (8x8 scrap book pack) This beautiful pink paper with the chandelier is just perfect for out little cherub!! xx
