Wedding Mini

Hi all

Well sorry haven't blogged but my computer has not been doing what it is suppose to do.
Anyway had a very good week and a couple of really good weekends bu now have to get back to doing my crafting, have so many things on the go and nothing finished.  Have promised myself some more Halloween projects as my grandsons are coming on Friday and still haven't got around to any of them.

But first today is the finished Mini i have been working on for a friends wedding, thanks for looking hope you like it.



I used a paper stack I have had for ages i am no sure of the name but the flowers are do craft and it looks the same I am guessing it came from them.


the box  i made from som Co-ordinations white and made the tags to match.


Each page has a flap on the front that opens out to a small pocket and a tag, the pack of the page has a large flap that lifts up.



Each page also has a large photo mat.



as always thanks for looking hope you like it.

Plain and simple

Card No 2 for today

I just used an old sticker from my stash.  First I embossed the card with the cuttlebug Swiss dots, I was going to emboss the whole of the card but rather liked the gap, gave a plain card a little bit of interest I thought.  Then I used the memento white ink straight over it


I die cut a scalloped circle from Spellbinders and added a sticker that was in my stash.

A very simple card but I thought it was eye catching.

Anyway thanks again

Xmas Tree............. loving the new Ribbon.

Afternoon All

Well been quite busy today, went back to the Dr they had forgotten to put in my appointment and there must have been 40 people before me.............  did I wait NO........  do feel a bit better today so will change it to another day,.  Had to come home and craft then oh and take back my sisters dishes.... as she had brought me over Sunday Roast with all the trimmings............. yummy.

Anyway a couple of cards today
Hope you like them and as always thanks for looking.


This card was created with a cut file that I then matted on white and lime green card.  I embossed the swirl tree about 4 times just to get it nice and shiny and to stand out from the rest of the card.


The Ribbon I bought in a haberdashery, they had 30 off cuts in one bag, i love it so pretty

thanks for looking No 2 coming up

Santa Cards

Afternoon All

Just a couple more Xmas cards form this morning, going back to a bit more traditional cards today
on Kraft card,  I love this effect of the card


I bought the Merry Xmas ribbon a few years ago and actually forgot I had it


I always used to forget the inside but make it a must now.


this image and paper pack was in a goodie bag from the Range, I love the papers.


I think the stamp was from the Papercrafting magazine.

Well thanks for looking as always, comments welcome.

New Box Xmas Cards

Hi All

Well after being extremely ill for the last week finally got in to my craft room to do some box cards.  It is funny have had all this time off work and couldn't even get in here to do anything.





Hope you like them, now reading a book on how to blog properly too................ so hope fully will be able to get my blog working for me and not me for it..............



The back of this one is vellum and looks good with a tea light behind.



This one is a bit of a favorite, I was going to use the traditional colors but decided I would do cream and teal I think it came out quite well.

As always thanks for looking.

Donna.
