Easel Wedding Card

Hello - well you can tell I'm not getting much housework done this weekend can't you - I'm back again. I have now finished off all the cards I need for this month so I can start on all the goodies for my stall. I got the easel card above as a download from I think it's a really nice idea and you can make it as simple or fancy as you like.

New Baby

Good Morning, hope everyone is well, it's a bit of a rainy day here looking out of my little craft room. I have made this card for a friend's friend who has had a baby. I have got one wedding card to make and then I can start on my christmas cards and little gifts that I am going to make for a stall that I am going to do in November for the local hospice. I feel a bit tired to today - late night last night (11pm - which is very late for me) my clubbing days are definately over, gone are the times when I could stay out past 2am three night in a row !!!!

Have a lovely day

Wedding Card

Hello, I'm having a bit of a mad day, it was my intention to get up extra early and go to a certain sale this morning at 5am, but it got to 4.30 and I decided TC has got enough clothes (don't bother going for myself I find it to much of a nightmare hunting for things) so I stayed in bed until 6 !! Hubby has gone to work and TC and I went off to watch my cousins daughter get married. I took a few pics and then hurried home to get them printed off. However once I had printed the photos could I find the card that I made months ago, I have turned the house upside down looking (thank goodness I found it) on a brighter note I did manage to find my marriage certificate (missing for at least a year) and the car park passes for work (missing at least 9 months) so every cloud !!!!!!
Enjoy the rest of your day

Hello, well I finally got my birthday books finished and the Teachers all loved them which I'm really pleased about and the fact they liked them so much made it totally worth all the time it took me.
Today TC took the thank you cards in, sorry for the bad photos (especially the 1st one) - but I took them at 6.30 this morning as I was in a bit of a rush it looked ok when I took it but now it looks like I felt after I had been up half the night unable to get back to sleep after a 2.30am call of nature (I think it's my age !!!). I have to say a huge thank you to Wendy from clipart fairy where I got the 'Just to say thankyou' image from. Thank you Wendy your a treasure as is your website - I spent that long making the books that I didn't leave much time to make the cards so the image I had from Wendy meant that I was able to make the cards really quickly, and I thought for a change if I used the Zutter down the sides I could tie them with ribbon and make them a bit fancy. The easel card was made as a special card as one of TC's teachers has decided to retire and we have known her for a long time. She wouldn't thank me for reminding her but she was doing teacher training when I was at nursery which was in the mid 70's so I think she well deserves a rest !!!!
Anyway better go got a new baby card to make plus an envelope to make for a wedding card !!

Plush Pals

Two posts in one day whatever next. I made a quick card today using this new fab crafting CD called Plush Pals by Ella's Design, it's so cute, there are alphabets, lots of lovely 'plush pals' to craft with, pre designed cards and loads more. I bought mine from a craft shop in Frodsham but I think it is also available on Ellas Design Blog.
I just printed out the letters and the elephant, decoupaged them and added a little bit of flower soft to the elephants ears.
Well must go and do some crafting, I still haven't started putting my Birthday books together !

Birthday Book

Hello - well I have finally finished making my prototype birthday book for my little boy to take into his Nursery teachers on the last day - I'm sure they must get fed up of chocolates and biscuits so I decided to make them something instead (think of all the calories they will save), plus TC chose all the images and is helping print them off.
I got the idea of the Birthday Book from a crafting CD called Plush Pals by Ellas Design (
I'm really pleased with the one I've made - now I just need to get everything printed off (in progress as I type) and then all stuck together. It has improved my PC skills as I did the template for the calendar in word, saved it as a PDF, copied this into paint and then transfered that into My Craft Studio Professional so I could the add the images and the months at the top of the page !
I'm sure there was probably an easier way but I couldn't figure it out, so this evening it's a nice glass of wine and lots of cutting, matting and layering for me, its a good job that school doesn't finish until next week I have got four to make plus four thank you cards !

Bookmarks for School Fair

Good Morning - sorry for not blogging for a couple of weeks I don't know where the time has gone. I have been making and doing I just haven't had time to get on the PC. I have made a stack of bookmarks for my little boy's school fair, the photo's are a bit naff but I was really pleased with the final product. I used Joanna Sheens Messy Rabbit discs, printed the images off and mounted them on card to make them a bit stronger.

Now I am in the process of making Thank You cards and Birthday and Anniversary Reminder books for my little boy to give to his teachers when he finishes his final week of nursery. Watch this space for how I have done !
