Third set of Christmas cards.......

I am still using the same paper pad for these cards (the 12 days of Christmas by my minds eye) and hope to make a few more out of it.

For the green poker dot on the top and bottom I used some washi tape,the HOHOHO is a wooden piece that I coloured black and for the Christmas ornaments they are 3D sticker by (Anita's).

For this card I used elements from cards last year I was given and recycled. I don't throw anything away if I know I can reuse them,LOL
Again I used the washi tape on the edges, a doily behind the image which was recycled from a card and little rhinestones in different areas.
I was also gifted some sweet holly/berry sequins by my sweet friend Su. That I have used on the cards too. 
I hope you are all having a awesome week guys and getting ready for Christmas.
Hope to share some more cards soon.

Second set of Christmas cards!

These are my second lot of Christmas cards. My aim this year is to use up most of my stash I already have to make room for news things next year.

For both of these cards I have used a plain white card base and the pattered papers are (12 days of Christmas by My minds eye). The embellishments are all stickers I have had for a while.

These cards are quite simple but still really cute and a great way to use up those odd bits you may have laying around.

I would love to hear your ideas on how you use up your stash. Have a awesome day and have fun creating.

First set of Christmas cards this year!

These are my first set of Christmas cards this year. I found this sweet little angle stamp in the 'Works' really cheap.

The base for both these cards is plain white card stock with a scalloped edge.For the pattered papers I used (12 days of Christmas by my minds eye).The wreath embellishment again is from the works and they come as a pack of  five.
Both wood sentiments I have coloured with my makers and added some stickles.
 I have finished them off by adding a few sequins and Stickles to both of the images too.
I had lots of fun making these and looking forward to using this sweet image on other projects.

A sweet bag!

Hi Guys!
Today I have a sweet bag to share with you. This is a project I found on Pinterest,I had seen many different ones and thought I would give it a go myself and this is how they turned out.

They are so cute and can be used in many different ways.

For this one I used Tim Holtz papers and some black card for my base.
The doily is a Spellbinders die which has a center cut out from the patterned papers. This is quite plain but you can decorate them as much as you like.

As this one is for myself I have just stored some handmade cards in them.

For my second one I had a sweet friend of mine in mind. She has a beautiful baby girl and I thought this would be really sweet  mini album and a way for her to store picture's of her little one.

This has been made in the exactly same way. The patterned paper's used is New Arrival by Forever Friends,they are so cute and come with many different cut out which I have used on the front.
To finish them off I have used a few border punches to add decorative edges and embellishments.

I think this a such a sweet little gift and can't wait to make some more.
Thanks for stopping by today guys!

Two Gatefold,Bellyband cards!

Hi Guys,

I hope you are all looking forward to a awesome weekend.
This is going to be my last post for a couple of weeks as we are going on holiday!
I thought I would leave you with two very sweet cards I had made.
I am so pleased with how they turned out and can't wait to make some more.
For the base of my card I used white card stock,for the patterned paper's I used Lil Primrose by Kaisercraft. For the sweet little owl and flowers I used a stamp set called Oscar the owl and pals,this was also used on the other card as well.
The belly band of the card was made using the same papers and a little bit of yellow trim from my stash.
I coloured all the images using my spectrum noir pens.
The last thing is the speech bubble which is from a Lawn Fawn set called A Birdie Told Me!
 For my last card I pretty much did the same for the base apart from using the Spring drop papers by First Edition. The patch's, buttons and sentiment are from the same stamp set(Oscar and pals).

I had so much fun making these and sharing them with you guys.Have fun creating and see you in a couple weeks.

Quick card share!

Hi everyone!

Today I have a quick and easy card to share with you today. Sometimes if you are like me I don't have time to sit and get all my embellishments out I need a quick and simple card I can put together in a few minutes and this is one of those cards.

I used a white card base which I had got as a pack of 10 with envelopes, I then layered two pieces of coloured card stock from my stash in Baby Blue and pink.
The pattered papers I used is by First Edition(spring drop) Which I also used to paper piece on the girl image. The image is a Kanban stamp called Urban Belles-Love Hearts.

I then used and few buttons and a odd piece of ribbon I had,which is also a great way to use up all those little bits and bobs of scraps you have laying around.

Paignton Zoo

I finely got around to using the photo's we had taken on our trip to Paignton Zoo. I knew it had to be quite a large album as I got a little happy snappy with the camera,Lol.
I used chipboard for the covers and paper bags for the pages.

I started by painting the chipboard letters black,for the flowers I used my Tim Holtz flower die and a old frame from my stash.I then finished it of by using some wide green ribbon to tie the album together.

The paper's I used for this album is Safari kids stack by DCWV. These are great fun papers that went so well with the theme of this album.
I also used fun animal sticker's and chipboard pieces.

Thanks for stopping by today guys!
