Another Anniversary

hi crafters

This is the card i made for me and my family to send to my cousin for her 25th wedding anniversary.

I used a precut easel card blank and just added a few simple details like the personalised scallop circle, a bit of Baja breeze card embossed with vintage wallpaper, adorning accents embossing and cut to add some interest.

I added some gems, an adorning edgelet embossing with hearts and a heart from the i heart hearts stamp set topped with a  printed sentiment.

Hope they have a fab anniversary

take care

Hi crafters

A quick post from me today as ive had such a busy weekend ive had to appoint myself some chillout time before it starts all over again monday morning!!

Anyway its my cousins 25th Wedding Anniversary in August and my mum asked me for a special card for them...I was their bridesmaid when i was 11!! Time flies!!

Well id seen something that would be perfect on Sarah Janes blog, she's a talented lady and a fellow jem and i used that as a base and this is what i finished with!

I love this medallion and have challenged myself to use it more as generally i think of christmas when i use it...keep your eyes open for those in the future :0)

I used basic grey for the stamp mounted with scallop punched edge to the silver card, what you cant see is that the whole card is shimmered with the shimmer spray that im addicted too...thanks to SU mummy Jules :0)

i added some bling and found these lovely little heart buckles that put some white ribbon in to add a little pizzazz!!

i printed off the sentiment as its personalised just for them so can use as a keepsake as 25 years is an acheivement!!

Thats me for today

take care

Reason to smile!

Good morning crafters

Another glorious day here today, am hoping our summer has finally arrived :0)

Below is the card i made for my neices birthday on friday...19 i feel so old!!

I used the Reason to Smile stamp set which you can earn FREE all through August with an order of £60 (it is available to purchase too)

I finally got round to opening my Twitterpated papers and love them, I used them along side Daffodil Delight and finished with a very vanilla ribbon ( must admit this took me a while as i am rubbish at bow tying - definately need to practice!!)

The sentiment is from a hostess set from spring mini i think and one i have not used enough as soo cute

i finished it with obligatory bling and away we go, I also made a gift bag with a shimmered flower on but silly me forgot to take a photo of that!

Anyway after another very busy week im finally getting round to show you some of the swaps ffrom team training last weekend...a fantastic day!!

The theme was christmas ( i know its July but us crafters staart early )

Some wonderful ideas from some very talented ladies...thankyou

im all geared up to start on christmas stuff myself which does seem very strange with the sun shining!!

Well thats it for today...off to get crafting

Take care

Happy Bday Jules

Good evening crafters

Well yesterday was my SU mummy Julies birthday and i believe she had a lovely day
this was made card for her and as you can see i was in a 'green' mood

i used the Twitterpated papers as the background and stamped a flower in certainly celery as an accent on the sentiment.

The sentiment was computer generated as been playing some new fonts and highlighted along with pear pizazz pleated ribbon...sooo cute!

I added an antique brad to the centre of my flower and voila ready to go with a few added gems to finish off
