Playing around

I had seen this card previously but had no measurements or anything so just played 
with the sizing until it looked right. I hope you like this card as much
 as I do and any questions please feel free to ask

Mini album

I found this little album on you tube and had to make my own version of it. So I did the basic one shown then added loads of extra pockets and tags. I am really pleased with how it's turned out. I really enjoyed doing this and am going to make another tonight

Tags and Tag Holder



A sea inspired tag holder with tags, again made by me as a gift.








Candle Gift Holder

The inspiration for this was given to me by my friend Becka who is superb at things like this. So after getting the information from her I decided to make one for her. 
I loved making it, clear, easy instructions and a great sense of satisfaction. 

The instructions can be found here on her blog. 










Friend Card

I made this card with a particular friend in mind who had been so kind to me since we became friends that I wanted to just make her a little something.

Birthday card

This is a card I made for a female birthday card. I used a digi image and then used some hunky dory backing papers and card, the Art Deco style.

Mini Album #2

This album was made for one of my closest friends.
I jiggled the size about a bit, so I could
use 8x8 paper and A4 cardstock.
Extremely pleased with the finished album,
its part of my friend's Christmas presents
so I hope she likes it.
We will find out :-)

Santa's Sleigh

Well, me being me, I decided to cut out
a paper sleigh, make it up and decorate it.
I used a cutting file from my craft studio
and sized it to how big i wanted the sleigh
to be then cut out white card stock.
I think if I made another i would use
craft card instead, as its a little thicker.
I glued it all together and let it dry overnight,
then decorated it using some 12x12 paper 
I had.  I used embossing powders around the 
edge, the gold frantage powder, then
added some finishing touches, like the pompoms
and the gold edging.
I forgot to take photos as I was progressing, so here
is the finished sleigh, ready to fly.
