WOW! so much to do as always busy planning something to celebrate New Year's Eve today
I wish you all safe and happy celebrations and see you next year...
didn't think it was that long since I last blogged but how time flies when you are having fun doesn't it :0)
Ive been sooo busy finishing off wedding on the day stationery and other orders slipped my mind ...oh dear!!
Today I want to show you a glimpse of just some of the things I have been upto.
The lovely vintage shabby chic placecard design I came up with for a recent wedding with the quota of a hint of coral and the couple wanted table names using motorbikes...thought it would be difficult to make them look 'shabby chic-ish' but loved the way they turned out.
The bike names were 3d cut with my silhouette cameo machine - love that too!! you can see the detail of embossing and flowers better on this close up picture.
I used pistachio pudding card along with a hint of calypso coral and basic pearls.
Tableplan done too and the birdcage charms matched those used on their wedding invitations too...the couple in question loved all the work I did for them which makes all my time and effort even more worthwhile :0)
Just before I go another of my loves at the moment is the stampin up curvy keepsake box die and have been going quite box crazy for them so just a sneeky peek!!
That all for today hope you all have a lovely weekend
A glorious day here today sunny but with a nip in the air :0)
Quickie from me as sooo much to do today (as always)...would love a day to do absolutely nothing once in a while to catch up with myself but the wouldn't we all!!
Anyway I have fell in love with the SU curvy keepsake box die...just love love love it!!
Todays project as you have probably guessed will be made with this and have a whole load of projects on the go with it so watch this space.!! I have shown you the baby box previously today I am introducing....
the cutest little penguin!!
He is just adorable and you can fit a multitude of treats in him as a gift.
If you fancy making some wonderful boxes with this die drop me a line to order one.
Todays offering is a card I made for my late friend Pat..(.I set up a facebook page in her memory hence why I am making her a card) so while on a roll with the typeset papers I carried on as you will see in future posts :0)
I am really loving blackberry bliss its such a deep and vibrant colour and know Pat would of loved it!
The birthday sentiment is from Tag Talk and the gorgeous venetian crochet trim to tie the gatefold card together
Look at the sparkle on those gems love 'em!!
Again Happy Birthday to my dear friend ( miss you )
Sorry for the late post but been off enjoying the last day with my son before school starts again and what a glorious day it has been :0)
I have been trying to spread a little kindness and have chose 5 people who want to help too so todays offering is the little pack of cards in a lovely box that I have posted out to a lovely friend today.
I used the lovely stamp set beautiful bunch in lost lagoon and blackberry bliss with hint of old olive for good measure and the effect is gorgeous!!
I used the lovely lace embossing folder on the whisper white cards along with sentiments from garden party and flower patch, then used kraft card and the typeset DSP to create the cards below.
All blinged with gems as wouldn't be complete without a bit of sparkle and heres them all together with a peek at the box...will show you that another day :-)
That's me for today hope you're having a lovely day where you are
A mixture of a day here today sunny but wet if you get what I mean...
Well bit of a combination for todays offering as this is to celebrate friends who got married yesterday, I made their wedding stationery etc in ivory and Cadbury purple which is so popular at the moment but wanted to step away from that with their card so...
I went for a nice yellow with So saffron and stamped, punched and glued all the little flowers down. the sentiment is embossed in gold. Simple but gorgeous.
The combination part of this post is I will be entering this into a challenge on Fantasy stampers challenge blog the subject this time being hearts and flowers... I covered both these with this one!!
I have been absent from blogland for a few weeks...just soo busy with wedding stuff as well as life in general and have been planning a baby shower for a friend which was this weekend so can share some pics now without spoiling the surprise :0)
I turned a changing table into a sweetie cart full of goodies that just look fantastic, so cute everyone loved that.
I got a fab idea from pinterest - addicted to it!! - about this frame with mini washing lines on where you write a message or words of advice/wisdom on a babygro and add to the washing...lots of fun.
We had lots of food including cupcakes, baby face cookies and the cake which had two shades of blue inside all made by my mum and niece...I admit I cant bake!! But they were greatly appreciated by all who came to the shower!
I did make the simple chalkboard style banner tho :0)
In case you didn't realise already...she is having a boy!!
WOW! a week has passed already...in the blink of an eye to be honest!!
Well for once in the last few weeks I do not have a childrens party to attend today just lunch with the mother-in-law :0) and its a beautiful day here so am looking forward to spending some time out in the sunshine too.
Today I am showing you the lovely little earring holder gifts I made for the ladies I work with...we are a family there and I appreciate them all for the help and love they have given me over a difficult few months sojust wanted them to know that with a cute pair of earrings.
I used smoky slate embossed with modern mosaic and cut with circle framelets, then stamped using petal parade in smoky slate and punched 2 holes for the earrings to fit in.
I stamped an image from chalk talk in various colours to match the earrings and to suit each of the recipients.
And here they are all together...lovely.
The ladies loved them!!
Happy crafting and have a lovely day wherever you are.
A lovely day here today...gardening is calling but needed to make a few things before I do that!!
A friend has a special birthday coming up and we have bought many gifts for her so obviously we needed some packaging suitable for her special birthday. This is what I came up with...
I decorated a large SU kraft box using so saffron DSP all around as well as having yet another go at using my spiral flower die...I have really struggled to get to grips with this as my flowers never seemed to look right :(
I stamped gorgeous grunge in crumb cake on very vanilla and mounted on black to make it stand out added my flowers in so saffron, perfect plum and blushing bride along with pear pizazz leaves and tiny pearls dotted about.
You can just about see the jumbo pearls I used at the centre of the flowers and the sentiment is from Chalktalk stamped in baked brown sugar.
Its that time of the year again...retirement lists from the current catalogue :( sad but its a chance to get your hands on some goodies at reduced prices plus it means the new catalogue launch will also be here soon :)
