Anyway's... it's my Mum's birthday on the 21st Dec. & one of her fave things

80th Birthday :)

hello you wonderful people... I do hope you are keeping well :)
one of my Dad's older Sister's celebrated her 80th Birthday recently
& we had a family get-together last night for a party... it was a great night as always lol
Anyway's onto my post today :)
I wanted to try a new type of card & thanx to my good friend Teresa... 
I followed her tutorial for a Criss Cross Card which can be found HERE
& this was my finished creation :)
Below is the card with the insert taken out... I printed off the templates for the numbers & then added it to card which I then cut out... then put them on the front of the insert with some text & gems :)

Below is a view of the back side of the insert on which I added a verse :)


The papers are digi papers which I printed off
Flowers are from my stash
Lace I bought from my craft shop round the corner
Ribbon is from my stash
Gems are from my stash
Card stock is from Dovecrafts & Gemstones
I also created the stand as a template in my PSP... printed it off & then cut it out of card :)

My inking attempt :)

hello lovelies... I hope you are well :)
I finally got my hands on the gorgeous All Occasions Embossing Folder :)
I've always wanted to try the 'inking' technique & decided to try it using my new folder
& here is my very first attempt :)


I used an 'Ink It Up' small ink pad from my set
gems & flower from my stash
The flower bead I bought not long ago too
add a sentiment that I created using my PSP & printed it off then die cut it :)

More intricate cutting :P

I loved doing the previous cards using a mirror image technique...
so I decided to try it out with Christmas images
again I found these images online so if you know the creator... please let me know so I can give them their well deserved credit :)





I used my two of my Poinsettia dies on the top 2 cards with flat backed beads from my stash
& I used my new Bow Maker for the bottom 2 cards along with mini ornamental slowflakes & again flat backed beads from my stash :P
Thank you so much for stopping by & hopefully leaving me a comment :)

What dya think???

Hello my lovelies.... I do hope you are well :)
I found this pattern which is shown below online (I believe it was originally for use for embroidery)
I don't know who the creator is... but if you know... please let me know... so I can give them the credit  they deserve :)
Anyways... I wondered if I could use the pattern to create & card
I chose a square digi paper that I had then re-sized it accordingly & then pasted the 'masked' image onto it so that it was just the outline & not the white background lol
I printed off two (a pink design & a blue design) I cut out the outer line of the heart first & then attatched it to a piece of coloured card stock... then using a precision knife I cut out all the intricate inner pieces for that one half.... I then folded the top half of the patterened paper back using sticky foam pads & then attatched the whole thing to a patterned card... then I created some bows using my new Bow Maker.... added some gems & sentiments & below are my results :)

thank you so much for popping by & I hope you leave me a comment :)

It's huuuuuge lol

hello my lovelies.... a rather crappy day here... gonna rain I reckon :-/
Anyways... something more cheerful LOL
my latest creation was requested by a friend (for a friend lol)... the info was...
' 90th... Mum... her name is Violet... so maybe some of those flowers....large card please'
we discussed some ideas etc & so I got my brain working... HARD lol
I love the 3D Pop-up card boxes... so I thought....
'if I could make it bigger!!!!'
& I did!! lol... laid closed it measures 10 1/4 " & just over 8 1/2"
Most of them average about 4 1/2" X 5 1/2" (roughly lol)
I also made a box for it cause I obviously had no envelopes to fit it into lol
so... enough waffling....... here it is :)


I showed my friend the finished result & she loved it :)
let's hope her friend loves it too HAHAHAHA

thanx so much for stopping by & hopefully leaving a comment :)

I DID IT!!! hehehe

Whilst at my Sister's & B.I.L.'s on Sat. evening we played the 'Mr & Mrs Family Edition' board game & my Sister mentioned that she didn't know where to get new score pads from... there is nothing on the box or the instructions as to where they can be obtained... so I said I'd make some.... the first set is almost identical to the original papers but to save ink... my Sister wanted them more white... so the second set is what we are going go with when I eventually print them off LOL

Set one (almost identical to original papers)


Set two (the one's my Sister wants printing lol)


I think both sets are pretty nifty but people would just say I'm biassed :P lol
Thanks so much for stopping by & leaving any comments :)
