Baby pram cards

Well its been a busy time for babys at the moment. I made one and loved it so much that it ended up as four. Please but sad to say they have all gone so I'll be busy making some more as I love them so much.
Pram is from new arrivals
Love cuttlebug embossing folders
Gel pens to write on the tags
A little ribbon to fix the tag
Not forgetting a little button with ribbon threaded


Simple but pretty card
This is a card I have made for a friend. I have used Indie art cart, welding the butterfly together in Design Studio.
I have used cordination paper and embossing folder to give a bit of texture, then sanded.
The centre is covered with stickles to add a little sparkle.

Grace step card

I made this card for my mum's friends granddaughter. I've just about got my head around the step card (thanks Lou) so having some fun with them. I have used Design studio to weld and arch for the name plate.
I have used the gel pens to write on the flowers before cutting out using design studio. the edges of the flower have been chalked. I have also made this one as i know other little girl called Grace who will be two next year (wow I'm just so organised)

Tilda on a Tag

This was another card I created for the Challenge over on UK Crafters Thread, to use the tag from Plantin Schoolbook. I used Cricut Design Studio to cut the tags in two different sizes. I used Accent Essentials for the base card and my wonderful chalks (Color Box) for edges. My super cute Martha Stewart punch for the heart strip for Tilda to sit on. Tilda was coloured using my new addition Promarkers (need to keep practicing). I added a couple of flowers from my collections !!! (I love them but don't like to use them really just for show), and a few bits of candy and sentiment from craftworks cards.

Girly tag card

I created this card for the challenge over on UK Crafters Thread. You had to use the tag from Plantin Schoolbook. I cut and welded the tag using Cricut Design Studio (just love it) and the Forever Young Cart. The stamp I used was from an inkadoo Stamp set I have just purchased.
Not forgetting the chalks (Color Box) I used to colour the edges.

Tilda Cards

Well here are a few Tilda and Edwin cards I have made. These are painted with H2O'S, thing of the past now what with the promarkers. Not yet perfected my colouring with them to show yet, I know my painting is maybe not the best, but never claimed to be a painted!!!!! lol I'll keep practicing with the promarkers and then may be feel brave enough to share my attempts with you soon. Watch this space!!!!!! Most of these cards have frames on them which have been cut on the cricut.

Edwin on a frame from Accent Essentials

Tilda on a frame from Pooh and Friends
Another Pooh and Friends frame with a lovely little princess crown charm on a ribbon Accent Essentials frame again, they just make the prefect place for tilda to sit not leaving Edwin out he's having a lovely time on the swing, frame is from Accent Esstials


Here's another creation I have made using design studio. This is a card I made for a class to show how to use the elements on the Storybook Cartridge.


Well thought I would just share a few cards with you some Cricut some not. This one is cut using design studio to leave a square big enough to place a image stamped with an inchie stamp. I have a few of these and just love them. First I used my brayer to colour a piece of card, using my lovely rainbow ink pad. I have used my inchies stamps again (a different set) to stamp some images on my lovely card which I then punched out. They have been layed on to a backing and made into a quick card.


Well big thanks to everyone who came on Saturday to the first cricut club. I had a great time and hope it was like wise. Well lots of chatting and exchanging of ideas were going on, Several people explored different carts and shared they finds with everyone.
It's a lovely friendly group with room for more !!!!! NEXT CLUB WILL BE 22nd MAY 10 -4. SAME VENUE.

Back from the Holiday

Well I have been away on a short break, to chill out and relax. Hubby thought it would be nice to spend the week cruising(well that's how he sold it to me !!!!) the Norfok Broads with two kids and a dog. I can't say that I was truly able to relax; I was too busy waiting for the Splash!! Anyhow, it was memorable, and nice to be away from all the stress's of everyday life. Callum, Ally and Spencer the dog relax on the roof of the boat (relief they are still for five minutes) Callum & Ally relaxing on the bench in the woods, while Spencer has a bird in sight. Ally and Spencer on door duty Ally and Spencer in the Captain's seat Callum and Ally enjoying the breeze as they HOLD ON to the back of the boat(before walking around the sides, that's when mum has kittens !!! RELAX my dear says hubby !!!lol) Me and the boys having a walk in the parkland. (relax !!!!)

Paper Flowers

I have seen some lovely flowers being made, so thought it was time I tried my hand at them. I used some handmade papers and my Cricut, George and basic shape cart. I have used purple paper both light and dark, on some I used Glitter. The Two (right hand side)which are very sparkley were done using spray glue and then dipped in glitter. The other (on left hand side) I used Crafters Campanion silver giltter spray. On these flowers I have used the crafty notions spray, they are so lovely but they get everywhere. I use a cardboard box when the sprays are out. The other thing that happens is my little helper (Ally) comes along and produces page after page of soggy paper (oh well more paper required). The other downside is that it doesn't stay in the box (my walls are very pretty too) !!!! and there's alot less in the pot (oh mum we need some more), never mind he has a great time.
