Craft Room

Whilst I was having a tidy up my cheeky monkey was posing in my craft room ....

It looks quite neat!  You should the other view!!  Later.... xx

Did you see the hail?

My goodness me did it chuck it down here today.... along with some big hail stones!  I hope you didn't get caught in it.  Glad I was in the car!

Had a lovely class today and my two new regulars - my cousin and her friend - use it as therapy! We did a bit of stamping, cutting and sticking and ended up with a lovely little portfolio and four cards.  They were thrilled. We also made a cute little handbag and started our Technique Book - something we'll be adding to at each class.

I just love making cards for a specific reason (usually happy occasions) so cards for sad ones are just that bit harder and this card was for a friend who suffered a bereavement this week.  (I used Choc Chip, Concord Crush, V. Vanilla and Crumb Cake, Just Believe Stamp set and bit of Baja Breeze seam binding).

On a happier note, my first batch of Father's Day cards were snapped up by my friends at work, and I forgot to take some photos, but this one made it I also had to make the envelope as I didn't have one big enough!


I've had a little dabble with my first scrapbook page too after going to a family wedding.  I didn't know where to start.  I was almost too scared to cut the paper, y'know what its like!  Anyway the theme was yellow so I sorted out some bits and pieces and the page is in progress, I think a small fold out album in the middle will finish it off, which I hope to do tomorrow when I will post a photo!  Crafty B! x

Off to a Wedding Soon!

My Cousin's daughter Deanna gets married today. As usual, at the last minute I realised I still had the card to make!  Here it is!  I like to think of it as ""Something Old, Something New!... using some retired card (which I could hardly bear to cut) and the new Fun Flowers Die. All cream except for a little stamping in StazOn Mustard (which was my purchase of the week at £1!).

Hope you like it.
