A Royal Occasion

Who doesn't love a wedding.
We had a great night last night watching the Royal Wedding,
so romantic. I had to make a card for the occasion and
i have also included a photo of our sweets table using
English china of course. I was in my element from 4pm till 11pm
watching the festivities on TV.
I had to include a crown.

 Candles, sweets and mini cupcakes.

Easter Display

I made an Easter Bunting this year for my display and since this
photo was taken i have added a few other trinkets.
I haven't got around to making many Easter cards this year
but i did manage to make the one below.
Only 4 more sleeps to the bunny hops by.

Hearts and Pearls

I wanted to make this card very special for my friends wedding.
The card is alot lighter in real life, the photos have come out a bit dark.
I used Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand and Very Vanilla card stock.
I added lots of pearls , glimmer mist, distressed the edges and inked them.
I embossed the hearts and added lots of layers.
The card was front heavy but after finishing off the inside it sits ok.

Botanical Bonanza

I really like the Botanical Gazette Designer Series Paper.
I have been using it alot lately. One packet of DSP goes so far.
I have made a card and a cute little tissue box using the DSP.
I cut the butterflies out of the DSP and added some ink and distressed their wings,
they look like they are a stamp.

The Card.

Easter Ice-Cream Box

This little box was so much fun to make.
To start with i used an ice-cream box for the
template, so i had to eat the ice-cream first.
My husband surprised me with a Magnum
Temptation ice-cream and i was a little
excited when i saw the box, he thought it was for
the ice-cream but i was thinking of what a great
template to make more boxes and that's what i did.
I pulled the box apart and traced it onto an A4
sheet of cardstock, it takes up about 3/4 of a sheet and then i cut out
a piece on the top of the box to add a piece of window sheet
so we can see into the box.
I am going to make Easter gifts with this box but it would be great
for any occasion, as the box is a good size inside.

Easily Botanical

I made this card with the New Botanical Gazette DSP.
I cut out a design that was already printed on the DSP.
This Easel card came together really quickly, as the
paper has alot of really nice pages with many designs.
I used a blender pen to colour in some of the flower petals
with the So Saffron ink pad.

Pink Birthday

This is an easel card i made for my daughter's birthday.
I used lots of pinks, flowers and bling.
She loved it, that makes me happy.

A Top Note Gift

Can you believe it is April already?
I have been having a play around with some new products
from the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue that starts today.
I ran some chipboard through my Big-Shot and used the Top-Note Die
to cut out two Top-Notes. I glued them back to back.
I then covered both sides in Designer Series Paper and decorated.
I have made a little wall hanging.
I added some little scraps of paper so i can write down shopping
lists or must have stamping lists.
I decorated the front bit of paper but the others underneath are blank.
I have used the Gorgeous new Designer Series Paper,
Botanical Gazette and the stamp set French Foliage.
This would make a great little gift and would like nice in any colour combo.
Have a great weekend and enjoy life.

 I used my Crop-O-Dile to punch two small holes at the top to thread
the ribbon through and a small hole at the bottom to add a
little charm.
 The back side but you could also add paper to this side
and change it around to have a different look.
