Birthday Boy!



Thought I'd quickly share this special card with you whilst I'm waiting for Lewis's birthday cake to cook! Can't believe my little boy is ten already - only seems like yesterday I was in agony trying to push him out!!! Anyway, Lewis is very keen on cardmaking and scrapbooking and always asks me to make him a card rather than buy one so I do try to push the boat out a bit for him. This was my first attempt at a star card and I was pleased with how it turned out. I do love my Penny Black stamps but was pushed for time so cheated and bought the PB Stickeroos! Have also used Bazzill cardstock, some scraps of patterned paper (I knew they'd come in handy one day!), Cuttlebug embossing folder, Cricut George and Basic Shapes cartridge (for front cover) and Pink Petticoat sentiments. I haven't shown each individual page but basically, there's an image and sentiment on each one. He was chuffed as nuts with it! Better go and check on the cake.....I can smell something very chocolatey! Yummy!

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.



Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.
