Happy Birthday Harley...

How fast does time fly?! my little Godson is 3 today - I can't believe how quickly that has gone - Bless him - I hope you have a wonderful day Harley x x x

So I used this image from Mo Manning :)
Our Harley is a proper little boy and super cheeky so I thought this suited him :)
Royal Blue - as Harley is following in Daddies footsteps with supporting Chelsea - We will say no more! HA
I made a step card, the number is the Die'sire 3 inch number and the letters are the decorative alphabet 1 inch from Die'sire. The circles are from the centres of the accordion dies. I used the embossilicious chevron folder and some of sheenas white stampin card and coredinations. I coloured him up with Spectrum Noirs - I need to find the colour list, when I do I'll update it here

Hope you all have a loverly Evening

Happy Rest Day :)

Well except in this house lol - same usual Sunday stuff to do here, but it sets us up for the week looooool

Today I have a Christmas card to share I made for some recent shows in Germany
This is using some fab goodies from Sheena Douglass
You will find all things Sheena Douglass HERE

I used black cardstock which I sprayed with some pearl diamondd spray and sparkle. I used the circle accordion die to cut my panel and cut the centre and tab away. I covered it with acetate and layered it with 3d glue gel over my embossed piece of black card I used the vintage holly folder. The Holly leaves I cut, covered with distress ink and then stamped onto them, I turned them over and used a ball tool to give them some shape and mounted them using 3d glue gel.

Butterfly Lullaby...

Happy Happy Saturday :)

Today I have another Bow card to share with you - I cant get enough of making these at the moment and I thought Sara's NEW Butterfly Lullaby range would suit this style perfectly :)

I used the beautiful Fresh Pink centura pearl and cut the flourish die, butterflies and centre panel out with this, I used it for my base also, the sentiment is from the 3d toppers which go with the collection and the papers are from the 12 x 12 paper pad.

It makes such a super pretty card

I have an early start in the morning its my Brother's Comp up in Nottingham :)
My Mother in Law is coming to stay with our kiddies, I'm gonna take my cuttlebug to diecut diecut diecut lol

I have a couple of makes from the beautiful range Sara Davies launched on Create and Craft earlier this week, these collections really are gorgeous! the papers are lush!
This one is from the Festive Range
I just adore this paper! I used the frame embossing folder and cut the middle circle away, I then edged the circle with the snowflakes and the poinsettia, I added a little gilding wax and some glitter. The sentiment is from the stamp set.

This next card is from the Butterfly Range
I wanted to keep it clean and classy, I used ivory centura pearl and black centura pearl, I cut the butterflie and I layered the largest onto some acetate which I sprinkled with glitter, I used stick it on the acetate. The sentiment is from the stamp set as is the embossing folder.

You will find all things Crafter's Companion in the shop here

A Day of Rest...


Nope not in this house, washing, ironing, hairwashes, baths, dinners, homeworks, cleaning omgosh on and on and on lol - Sundays are always super busy getting ready for the week ahead :) Although I do like it that I get prepared!

Today I have a card to share I made for some Germany shows a good while ago it uses the fab Birthday Cupcake Embossing folder - which you can find HERE in the Crafter's Companion Shop
I embossed the folder on some plain card, then covered it completely in Gliding wax - silver and renaissance gold. I paper pierced the inside edges with a ruler and pokey tool, and added some pearls, ribbon and a brad for the fold over corner. I really loved the effect the gliding wax gave :)

As promised here are another couple of pics from the recent Crafter's Companion 10th Birthday Event :)

With a very modern twist :)

Happy Saturday Guys - Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!

Today I have a Sheena Card to share with you - I made this one for one of the recent Germany Shows - I absolutely ADORE this collection from Sheena Douglass

So as I'm typing this I realised I havent shared any photos with you all from the recent Crafter's Companion 10th Birthday Event - ACK - I need to change that and share some don't I?!
Along with so many other fabulous ladies :)
Look who I met!
(Apologies Sheena, I had had a few whoooops :() )
How tickled pink was I?!

I got to meet so many fabulous ladies - My BEAUTIFUL Crafter's Companion teamies, the TALENTED Inkoids and the AMAZING team of Sara Davies, Leann Chivers and Fiona Clayton - it was a night I will never forget! EVER :)

Partly because I won an award too!!!!!!!!!
I know - I was stunned to stunned!

I am not used to winning anything for something I have done - or feeling proud for myself - its usually always the kids I'm proud of - so the feeling was quite alien to me - but so amazing when I sat down to pinch myself! Needless to say this will take PRIDE OF PLACE in my craft area :) 
Thankyou so much Crafter's Companion :)
Selfie hahahaha
Design Team Member of the Year
Chuffed!!!!!!! (doesn't cover it)
Many Congrats to everyone who won awards that night - so well deserved :)

I'll remember to share a few more over the next few days/month looooooooooool

On to my card
I used the amazing pefect partners festive collection - the Holly is amazing!

I cut it using the die and then covered it in a mix of silver and renaissance gold gliding wax. I turned them over and used a ball tool to shape them, then mounted them with 3d glue gel onto another holly. The folder is from the Vintage Christmas range from Crafter's Companion, I embossed it on coredinations and then covered it with gliding wax. The aqua card is also coredinations and my card base Sheenas white stampin card (cannot get enough of that stuff) embellies are from my stash.
