A Few Folders


Thought I was going to have a free day today to get on with some crafting but nothing ever goes to plan!! Got the shopping done at Asda first thing and was just about to settle down to some cardmaking when the phone rings......it was the school asking me to collect Lewis as he wasn't feeling well. He's now in bed fast asleep, poor chap, so that gives me some time to post this and colour in a couple of images in the hope of putting a card together tonight when the boys are in bed.

These are three folders I made a couple of days ago to send out some images to blogging buddies.



The image on the right (Tilda in Paris) was one of the Magnolias kindly sent to me by Sue. They've all been coloured in the usual way - Prismas and Sansodor with Glamour Dust on their wings, apart from Paris Tilda whose wings are hidden. Folders were made from plain white cardstock with papers, coloured c.s. and ribbons from my stash. Tiny sticky gems are from Papermania.

Super cute folders! I just love these. They are so fun!

BTW, where do you get your white cardstock? I was using one of the Nellie images the other day and it is so perfect for watercoloring. Just curious! :) I keep meaning to ask you.

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.
