Tilly Cake

This is from the arty farty templates.
This is my first attempt and i'm quite pleased with it


This is a card i made for my daughter. It was her 19th Birthday and wanted something suitable for her and this is what i came up with. I used the gem styler to put the gem in the middle of the corset.
I love the effect that the skeleton leaves give for the skirt

Nan's 90th

This is a card i have made for my Nan's 90th Birthday.
I got the idea from a fellow blogger, and thought it would be a lovely special card for her.
I have used acetate (although a little too thin for this) and used the stitching peall offs, without being stitched. I have placed a decoupage orchid in the middle and matched up the sentiment on the inside of the card so it won't show through when the card is closed. Finished off with a nice organza ribbon and bow

This is a card from the grand-children. It is made using the Arty Farty Poppy template. The outside is made using the cuttlebug happy birthday embossing folder with gold card.

On the inside I have used a medallion peel off that i have places onto acetate and then used permanent markets to give colour.
This was then,placed onto the circular cut out and suspended with with gold thread, tied in a bow with a gem fixed into the centre. Embellished with gold peel offs.


Trapeze Card

This is my first Trapeze card. I made it for my mums 60th Birthday and i can honestly say i enjoyed making it.
It is made with a template that is basically Paper Embroidery. In the middle is suspended a disk that i have placed a decoupage butterfly on.
I then placed a hexagon shape over the stitched edges, this is also embroidered.
The rest of the embelishements on the card are peel offs.

My first day of blogging

Well here goes, my first day of blogging.
Not sure at this moment what to write, but i'm sure it will come to me as i go along.
I've started up this blog so that i can record all that i make with my papercrafting and also to share with others.
I will try to put up as many of my creations as i can, may be it will also help in inspiring me on what i can do next.
Last night i sorted out all the cards that i have made and not sold so that hopefully I can find an outlet that is willing to sell them for me, I might even be tempted to put them on ebay, as there is a lot more of them than i thought.
I spent this morning making the banner for my blog, and i have also used the same design to make some business cards that i can pass around and hopefully get some business, that way i can appease my OH who wonders what i am going to do with all the stuff i have.
Well I'll close this blog for now and see what i can put up on here to make it a bit more interesting.
Thank you for looking
