Quick Embossed Male Birthday Card

This Card was made by my 4 year old son! He made it for his Daddy for his Birthday.

The gold mat was embossed in my Big shot using a Craft Concepts In Stitches embossing folder, then wide brown satin ribbon from Hobbycraft added, along with a simple gold peel off greeting.

Retro Pacman Birthday Card

This card was actually made by my 6 year old! He made it for Daddy's Birthday and as he knows he likes Pacman he thought it up all by himself!

Pacman he cut using a circle punch and scissors, the Ghost he cut using Nestabilities small ovals and scissors.
The Happy birthday is a go-kreate 3X3 die.

Easter Theme Tag

I dont usually do Easter themes, I never send Easter Cards, but this Tag was actually made for a Tag challenge, but it appeared I was too late. The site was playing up, then I went away and with no internet connection, by the time I got back it was too late. So instead it makes a nice Cheery blog post!

Yellow is not a colour I use very often. I dont have much yellow in my stash. Any Yellow flowers etc usually get altered to another colour. But I really like this tag, it has come out better than I imagined it would. Once I got started, the inspiration just kept flowing.

Mothers Day Tag card

I made this Mothers Day card for My Mum using the Tag I made for Rumtruffles Tag challenge last month.

The background card was simply distressed using Tim Holtz Tattered Rose and to the corners I added 3 drops of Gold Perfect Pearls.

Quick Mothers Day Card

This Mothers Day card I made for my Mother-in-law. I realy like it even though it was quite simple. It can easily be used for Birthday, or any occasion.
The paper was from a Free stack that came with a Card making magazine a year or so ago, and the border punch used is a Fiskars one.

Altered Picture Frame, Mothers Day

Mothers Day is April 3rd this year and as I live 300 miles away from my Mum, I like to make something special for her.

The frame was a plain wooden one from Ikea, which I roughly covered with torn printed sheet music. I then added Tim Holtz clear crackle.
The flowers are made from the Sizzix 3D flower die and coloured with Tim Holtz Dusty Concord.
The butteflies along the top left are a Martha Stewart Punch, the dangly is an old earring to which I added an irridescent gem and the heart I made using Resin and a chocolate mould from Poundland.
The Mum label is cut using Nestabilities labels 10 and again coloured with Tim Holtz Dusty concord. The letters I'm not sure about, they were from my stash and bright pink! I coloured them black using permenant marker.

I've got a nice summery photo of Me and my Mum together to go into the frame.

Felt Flower Brooch

Felt is such a fantastic medium to work with. I have loads of it in all sorts of colours and love experimenting with it.
This is my latest creation. A fab Brooch. It measures 3.5" from edge to end of leaf, 2.5" across and 1.5" high.

I've added small pearl beads to the centres and a brooch pin on the reverse.

This item is available to buy in my Etsy store. Just click the link on the right hand side. I ship worldwide.

It Must be my Lucky Day today!

This morning I received my Exam result, I passed with a Distinction and so am now a Qualified Beauty Therapist! Only took me 6 years part time, lol, but I got there in the end! YAY

Then I was checking sites I regularly visit, only to find I have won a prize! A lovely lady, Enfys, at Going Buggy offered a Card Making Book that she reviewed. I put in a request and I was the lucky one to be picked!

I will be passing the Book onto my Mum who is starting card making, and I know it will give her lots of help and inspiration. I live away from her so its hard to try to show her how to do things and share ideas. I've sorted out a gigantic shoe box full of crafting bits and tools and loads of extras overflowing the box.

Rolled Felt Bead Bracelet

Rolled Felt Beads are so simple and quick to make and look fab.
This bracelet took me about 20minutes to make and I had only ever made one felt bead before this!
The beads are a good way to use up all your scraps of felt.
If anyone is interested, I will make a tutorial on how to make these beads..

Poorly and Busy

Sorry I havnt updated much recently, Time seems to fly by so fast when your having fun!
I've been quite poorly with a nasty tummy bug which just wiped me out completely and I also had my Final Exam to complete for my Diploma in Beauty Therapy.

Any spare time I've had I've been playing around with making some beads with which I made a bracelet (details will be added lalter today as another post) and I spent this morning showing others at a "Time Out" group I go to each Thursday, how to make these beads.

Quick Pretty Card

I made this card for my Brother in laws girlfriends Birthday. I dont know her very well so wanted something that was suitable for anyone.

The paper was from a Papermania Capsule collection stack and the edge punch is a Fiskars cut and emboss punch.
I added very small nail gems along the embossed line for a little "extra" and coloured the peel off greeting with permanent marker.
