A Friend Loves

Here's a card I cased from a You Tube video by Brandy's Cards.


I changed the colour to Midnight Muse and used a different flower.

I made a set of 4 all the same as a gift set.

I love how they came out and so simple to do.

Jaded Blossom's Party Animal stamp set, card mats Card Mat Die.
Stampin Up Hardwood stamp set, card stock and ink.

With Sympathy card

Here's a Sympathy card I made using the Springtime Greeting stamp set from Jaded Blossom and my copic's.



I must admit that I love how it's turned out and it is now in my "Samples" stash.

I'm thinking this would make a great Mother's Day card so will have a play with some different colours and see how I go.

CUCC41 Easter

Time for my next Cooking Up Creations Challenge at Soul Scrappers.

I thought with Easter being in April we all should cook up an "Easter" creation.

My Recipe consists of your layout having the following ingredients:
1.  3 Easter eggs
         additionally
2.  3 RED embellishments
3.  3 YELLOW embellishments
4.  3 GREEN embellishments
(theses embellishments can be buttons, brads, flowers, twine, banners, ribbons, etc,etc)

Here's my sample layout


I created the eggs using my cameo.


I even made a card using the same criteria



I would love to see what creations you can cook up for this challenge!

Not a member of Souls Scrappers, no problem, click on the link above or message me your email and I'll get an invite sent.

Remember that for every Challenge at Soul Scrappers, if there are 8 or more entries, everyone goes into the draw for a RAK Prize. How  cool is that!

Steampunk Marci Card

While having a mini clean up of my craft desk - gasp.......I did say MINI, I came across the tag I made months ago while making the Steampunk ATC's.

Well, I decided that I really needed to do something with her, so I embossed a piece of Rich Razzleberry card and popped her on the front.


Doesn't she just look gorgeous!

Kindness Gift Set

Some days it's just great to sit down with an old tutorial and do some crafting to create a nice "set".

That's exactly what I have done.


Love this set - 2 Note cards, 2 bookmarks, 3 gift tags and a 3x3 gift box.

I'm very happy with how it turned out.

CC40 Newsprint Cards

Here's my entry into the latest Card Challenge over at Soul Scrappers.

This time we are using Newsprint - either stamping or patterned papers.

I have actually made 3 different cards, each using a different technique.

First one is stamped onto the PP and then coloured using my copic pens.


 Second one is just using die cuts to focus on atop of the pp.


Third one is using a 3 step stamp set and stamping onto the pp.


Gosh, how cute are the Jaded Blossom stamp sets!!!!!!

Just love the new Daisy stamp and can see me using it alot.

Bad Ass Birthday Cards

LOL, what an awesome title!
Certainly got your attention didn't it.

Stamp from Jaded Blossom Supersized Birthday Greetings,

The second card I am entering in Jaded Blossom's Favorite Stamp Set Challenge


The stamp set is Birds of a Feather.

TTT4 I am Fabulous

Here's my entry into the latest Tic Tac Toe Challenge over at Soul Scrappers.


I've used the middle row - Fabulous, circles and brads.


Laura was given adult 3D glasses when we when to see Cars 2 in 3D a few years back.
Her Just Fabulous Darling pose. I've had this Patterned Paper for ages and was wondering how I would use it, and I managed to use up some of my glimmer brads from my stash as well.

Happy Easter 2015

With Easter just gone, I thought I'd show you the Glass Block I made for Easter this year.


And lights on

Seriously, how cute is he!

Must say that with the kids older now, I don't have to spend as much on Easter eggs and novelties as I used to - got to love those Marketing people don't you!

I hope you all had a safe and enjoyable Easter break - I did work a couple of shifts myself, but enjoyed the days off I had with my family as well.

SSQ26 Ekka Time 2011

Here's my entry into the Soul Scrapper Challenge over at Soul Scrappers.

This one is different to others in that we get given a "Theme" for signing up to, and then receive some bits an bobs in the post to create a layout with.
We are required to use all of the pieces sent - you can modify, colour, etc to suit your layout.

So this time the theme was TIME........

Here's my entry:


I am in the top picture on one of the rides.........looking closer at it, it appears that my leg is straight up in the air!!!!
LOL that is actually a prop of the ride behind me. Loved it when I saw it as it makes for a fun photo, which prompts the question before hopping on rides - have you got your mobile in a safe spot?
Nathan hopped on the ride with me and halfway through I heard and felt something in the foot of the carriage....YES, a certain son's mobile - well half of it anyway!

ABC4 Guard DOG!

Here's my entry into the latest ABC Challenge over at Soul Scrappers.

We are up to "D" so our choice of word starts with D and the d embellishment is  Die Cuts.



My word is DOG and I made my own 10" Circle mat Die Cut. I used some of the negative piece on the layout as well.

One of the rare occasions that Bee Jay has been seen roaching - they say they only do this when they are extremely happy! I guess having a bed on a bed must of appealed to him!
