Blog Update

Blog Update

Morning all, it’s been ages since I updated my blog, I’ve had a lot going on in life lately but I think things have all settled down now so onwards and upwards.  The two cards I am showing on this blog are from the Imagine Design Create range of stamps.  I am not really a stamper but with the help of my daughter  Claire Newcombe  who has designed some of these stamps I have used in these 2 cards, I am getting into it more.  I love doing it but am not terribly good at it but hope to get better.  I love all crafts but am better at some than others.  I am very lucky that my family are all interested in crafts, Eddie my husband is a talented photographer and dabbles in drawing which is amazing. I have 2 very talented daughters Claire with card making, scrapbooking and sewing, Helen makes Jewellery and mosaic and lots of projects made with wire and 3 sisters that make cards knit and make jewellery we all have different styles but that is what makes crafting so interesting.  The stamps I have used are from the Imagin Design Create range which you can get at the following link. Imagine Design Create.  They are also on Hochanda on the 17th of May at 4pm.

I have shown some of the items I have used for these two cards.  Thank you for passing by and looking and I hope to keep my blog updated from now.

New Home

I made this card this morning for a dear friend who is moving next week.  The shape of the card was cut on my Silhouette using Birds Cards SVG.

I used a roller to spread the big and juicy ink (waterfall)

Thank you for passing by and viewing my blog.

Birthday Wishes

A friend requested a non-flowery card for her Stepdaughter yesterday so this is it.  I sent her a photo and fortunately, she loved it.

The lattice cut was made by my trusted Silhouette Cameo, I just love using this machine it still makes me smile when it is working at its best.  I'm pretty sure the cutting file is by Birds Cards.

Thank you for passing by and looking.

Thank you for passing by my blog and taking a peek.

I think I will try and make another male card today from the same CD which is - Papercrafts Mechanica..

Good Morning All
I was asked if I could make 2 cards for an 80yr old lady who loves Orchids.  I Had to search through my digital stash to find these two decoupage orchids but really enjoyed making them up.  I have got a new printer and I am so pleased with the vibrant colours.  i can't remember who this decoupage was fby but i will look and let you know, i just think they are stunning.

Thank you for passing by and looking.

Good morning all, I have been looking at this Le Suh image for some time and finally made a card from it.  It comes from a Le Suh 3D decoupage book I have had for some time now.  I think the images are perfect for male or female nature lovers so I may be making a few more cards from these images.

Thank you for passing by and looking
