All About Katy


Sorry, but this is going to be a very quick posting mainly because of the boys and their out of school commitments, so thought you might like to see the photos of a book I made my Niece, Katy, for her 30th birthday. The book came with it's own box, however, had to paint the whole lot before I could get started. You will see, if you look closely, that the lid of the box has a piece of acetate attached to it. This was used as a pocket to put the birthday card. Hope you like?

A Special 60th

My lovely Sister is celebrating her 60th birthday today so had to make her a special card.  Her gift from us was money so also wanted to dress it up a little so made a Tim Holtz gift card holder to put the money in and attached it to the MDF 60.






The bag was a little rushed to say the least!

A Little Bit Cheeky!

I saw this stamp set from Indigo Blu and knew I had to have it as I have too many of those friends and family who need to have a slightly naughty but funny card.


I made this card for my friend who has the same sense of humour as me!  Very plain and simple and easy to make...I think the sentiment says it all lol!

AMD Samples - Sending You Birthday Blooms

I have another sample to show today from the Create and Craft TV shows - this time a blue one!

I started with a  5" x 7" scalloped card base and chose three sheets of paper from the blue Garden Blooms pad which I then tore and distressed the edges, inking with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink (my favourite!) and then layering them onto a piece of pastel blue double glitz card which had been cut to size with the bottom corners rounded.  
I then took one of the blue postcards and stamped the sentiment in blue on it and of course, inked and shaped the edges!  I then applied Inka Gold to one of the frames from the Shadowbox Kit and glued it over the sentiment.

To finish, I cut one of the blue inserts down to size for the inside o…
