Good evening another quick post today, didnt get a chance to play with all my new crafty goodies that my parents brought me back from the states :-( my day has just flown by soooo quickly!!

This is another exploding box i have made for my neice to take to a wedding in November, used the same colour scheme as the wedding so it fits in and could even be displayed at the reception...hint,hint!!

I love this, it so unusual and again can be adapted to any occassion really

The little details are shown much better here and they are what makes it a lovely gift to treasure as a reminder of your special occassion!

Just a quick picture of the side just to show the height of that cake, took some doing as lost the template but i got there in the end, hope the recipients like it as much as me :0)

Good luck to the happy couple!
Bye for now

Happy Sunday to you!!
With Christmas just around the corner it seems thought i'd better make a start, tons of cards to make but can whip them up in no time takes me longer with gifts.
Below is a lovely pocket notebook decorated in autumnal colours for a friend...hope she likes it!!

I used some of the bits of paper had lying around and oddments of ribbon to decorate the spirals...very pleased with the outcome made some more too :0)

And also made a start on gift tags too, different from last years as got a new cutter hence the scalloped edging...love playing around when get new bits lol!!

This is just the first of many sets so had better get cracking!!

This is for my friend who is due to have a baby girl on 10/10/10...freaky but cant wait!!

I love the way the brown sets off the colours to perfection and it didnt cost the earth like Kraft paper...got it from Wilkos on a roll for wait for it.....67p!!! Total bargain and have 10 metres of it so expect to see more of it lol

Well tons of things to get done so will leave it here for today.

Well I cant show you the wedding invites i've done for a friend until after the wedding but can show you the card/box i made for their special day, something they can treasure!

This took some doing as have lost my template so basically made from memory and some luck really, very unusual and quirky and can be adapted to a special birthday or baby arrival or christening, a really nice gift in itself !

Ta Daaaa!! When the lid is removed all the sides fall down to reveal on this occasion a wedding cake and have done these in the same colour scheme as the invites :0)

The details still need adding inside but you get the idea plus we dont want any gatecrashers at the wedding lol!! I still have another one of these to make for my neice so i'd better get cracking Thats all from me for now x

Quick post from me today as feeling very rough...hopefully GP will have some answers for me soon but to cheer me up heres lola (yet again) she always makes me smile :0) i also so envious of that figure...wish i could draw meself thin!!!

A gorgeous backing paper sets this off to a tee and the flash of pink makes it girly but not to over the top...in my opinion anyway.

She looks lovely and again coloured with promarkers, i really like using Lola and hope you all don't get bored of her, take care till next time.

Ta ta for today x
