Making Waves!


Sorry I wasn't around yesterday.....had a really hectic day! Had paperwork, banking and a visit to the Dentist for the boys (which went well!!) so didn't have time for postings or any blogging. However, did manage to make a few things last night when the kids were in bed, some of which I can't show until the weekend because they're gifts for a friend. However, managed to complete the Papertake Weekly Challenge....this must be a record for me, don't think I've ever done it so quick before!!

This week the spec is.....

".....the challenge is to use scallops or zig-zags (or both if you're really keen lol!) on your project!...."

I'm really into red at the moment and decided to keep this one really simple.

For the base card, I've layered red Bazzill c.s. and some white c.s. embossed with Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. I've used one of my favourite Elzybells stamps and coloured it with Brushables and added a sentiment from the Papertrey Ink "Just Hatched" set. Then used by small rectangles Nestablities to cut and emboss the bunny and the scallop rectangle set to cut out the background on red Bazzill c.s. Added some red grosgrain ribbon from my stash and three Papermania sticky gems.

Must go now as the Hairdresser is due soon to cut the boys' hair and hoping to get some more crafting in today because I've got to wait in for the Engineer to repair my dishwasher....just can't wait for that to be fixed as I'm getting fed up of washing up by hand.....how lazy is that!!!

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.







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.
