A quick little card

Here is a quick little card that I put together for a good friends birthday last week. 

This spotty paper is one of my absute faves and with the right embellishment can look fab!! It is slightly distressed so looks lovy when used with Kraft card. 

The flower was made using Stampin Up's Blossom Punch and the leaf die is from the Memory Box range. 

Thank you for looking.xx

Here are a few pictures of what I made...

3 Little Butterflies

So whilst my husband to be has been away on his friends stag do this weekend I've been staying at my Parents house. It's always lovely coming back "home" for the comforts of my childhood and my Mum is my crafting buddy. After a busy weekend we finally got in some crafting time on this warm Sunday evening...

After raiding Mum's stamp stash I came across this lovely butterfly in an Inkadinkadoo set that I think I also have at home somewhere (oops)....

I'm loving shaped cards at the moment and this die shape is so nice to use! 

Now it's time for bed as h2b is due home tomorrow and I will no doubt have a mountain of washing to tend to ha!

Thanks for looking!

Christening Cards

So recently I had the great honour of becoming a God Parent for the 2nd time so what did that also mean? 

I needed to make some cards!! 

Now being a very good friend to the Mummy of my new God Daughter, I was asked by a few of her family members to make them cards too...  

My friend was having both her girls christened on the same day so you will see 6 different cards....

Here's what I came up with...

From me...

For another God Parent to give...
I love the bunting (Stampin Up punch) & the pastel colours...

And finally, these ones were for the Grandmother of the girls to give...
For these 2, I used Copic markers to colour the church & the ribbons were put of my stash. 

I was really pleased with the different designs & I hope they were well-received...

Thanks for looking!

Scrapbook Pages

Scrapbooking is still one of my most favourite ways to craft. It's so nice to capture those special memories and make a totally unique album. From choosing the papers, to printing the photos, deciding on a title and writing those personal journal quotes, it's fab! 

Anyway...here are a few pages that I have made recently for a begonia crafts card class...

(1) I love the bright colours on this one and the papers we're perfect for bunting! This bunting is cut using Stampin Up's:
"Hearts a Flutter" framelits
"Penants Parade" punch
I also used a "Scallop" punch (along the bottom)

(2) I wasn't keen on this background paper at first but actually I quite like the result...
On this page I used:
"Banner" framelits 
To create the flower...
"Blossom" & "Pansy" punch with the "Little Leaves" sizzlits (which I'm a little bit in love with!)

(3) I took inspiration for this one from Pinterest where I kept seeing lots of mosaic/tiles used on projects...
Again this one features the Little Leaves Sizzlits which really make the flowers stand out...

(4) and finally....again this features the Blossom Punch & Little Leaves sizzlits...!! 

I hope you like :-)

Thanks to Pinterest, my love for them has been rekindled....and here's a few I've made recently....
