Our Juicy Princess xxxxx

My page from Thursdays class at the Craft Den!! Lynne was still catching up with everything from being so poorly over the last few weeks!! So we used a page I had made from blonde moments a while ago!!

So instead I did this page with my (our) little Princess!!

Plain brown bazzil for the background and a pink bazzil and MB paper for the torn pieces inked round the edges with spun sugar. Mounted my pictures and some lovely patterned gold and punch out the crowns in the same card with the MS punch.

Cut out princess with the cricut and inked these with Spun Sugar and finally Zva bling a must have touch!!!! If you love bling you must check out these Zva Crystal's at Lynne's they are gorgeous!!!

A new toy "Hougie Board"

Another fab class at the Craft Den on Wednesday night!! Where Lynne produced the "Hougie Board" for us all to have a go at making this fab step card!!! Well I could believe how easy is was to use and how quick so I just had to have one!!!

Love this style card and it was measured and folded in minutes so had plenty of time to colour this gorgeous Magnolia in!!!
Used Copics to colour the image and the papers for the card are spotted bazzil and Bo-Bunny "Love Bandit Nuts". The lovely flourish is a fabulous punch I purchased last week also from the Craft Den it's an EK Success but don't know the design it also comes in a smaller version and feel that I may have to have that one as well!! lol.
Added Ribbon and gems and a lovely charm which I really didn't want to part with but it was such a perfect match!! flowers are Prima hydrangea's.

Shamed into an Atc!!!

This is my Atc for the Craft Den's monthly swap!!! As you all know I don't like small spaces and really struggle but this month I have been shamed!!! yes shamed into doing one!!!! lol xx
I have used a couple of Crafty Individual images on the top one I have framed the beautiful angel with a Paper Artsey frame and used foam pads to stick it on then used the small retro punch for the flowers!!

Added my favourite stickles and some sheer ribbon.

Scrap Booking our little treasure!!

It was my usual scrapbook class last Thursday and Lynne gave us free reign with our page!!!

She gave us this beautiful harlequin paper and the plain bazzil, showed us some ideas then let us loose!!! lol The background paper is really beautiful in pinks and greens but unfortunatly my picture's just don't do it justice!!

We punched holes in the paper and threaded some beautiful spotted ribbon through!! I have used mine on the side for a change.(made a fabulous tag but just remembered I have not put this on my page!! if only I had a brain!!! lol)

We also used Tim Holts dies for the flourishes, the wings and hearts I have edges these with DI and once in place added the pearl pen. I have also added bling "Babe" a must have and plenty of gems, added punched flowers and the beautiful MS punched hearts.

On the background I stamped the Prima Flourish with DI's and then added a few gems.

Secret Crafter Challenge xx

Was just going through my blog list tonight and I came upon the "Secret Crafter" challenge blog which for this week the theme is "Metal"

This is a tag I made a few ago at the Craft Den on a technique's night which I think is perfect for the added metal!!

This is a tag which we painted with Viva Terra and then stamped into for the background once we had dried this I then painted mine with a black dabber the wiped some Viva Metal painted on the the edges and the texture.

I then used the new Paperartsy die to cut the fabulous metal butterflies then popped them through the cuttlebug for the texture. I have also used the new stamps which co-ordinate with the dies for the foliage. Finishing touch stickles xx

Finally my "SUNSHINE" award!! I have received this four times from the lovely ladies Lau, Gina, Kerry & Lynne and I want to thank you so much it really made my day!! four times!!! lol xx

I am supposed to pass it on to 12 people each time!! So I'm going to be really naughty and pass it to everyone who looks and comments on my blog!! Thank you so much for your beautiful comments!!!! xxxx

Great night at The Craft Den xx

Had a great time last night at The Craft Den!! not been for a few classes and I really miss it and my lovely friends there!!

Last night we did a techniques night and used blonde moments pigments painted onto black card stock then we put them through the cuttlebug and cut out with tim's new dies and punches. The effect is just beautiful and really the pictures don't do it justice but you can get the idea. When I got home I new I had the perfect image to use a Ching-Chou Kuik which I was so lucky to win on Gina's blog as her candy!!! Coloured her with copics and added stickles.

Thank you cards!!

Well at long last I have finished the Thank You cards that Rochelle asked for before "Summer" was born!!!! lol (Only started them Monday afternoon I really need to get my head in gear!!!)

As we don't really know how many she needs I have made twenty so far and looks like I may have to make some more!!! I have kept the design really simple and used the beautiful magnolia baby!!! coloured her with my copics, which ran out in the middle so a mad dash down to Lynnes!!!
I have mounted my image on to a Nellie C in white card, which is then mounted onto Blonde Moments papers with a pink bazzil border which I have used my Valentine Lace punch. The little thank you banner is also a magnolia stamp and the lovely pink bow is some mesh ribbon cut into thinner strips!! I am soooooo glad these are done!!!

"Summer" is deciding if she likes the design!!! lol
