Big Brother Card

Wow just realised I have not posted for a while. How time flies when you are busy.

Just a quick post to post recent cards I have made. We had a new addition to the family so naturally homecard were required to make.

Just love the Eclipse cards as so easy to make.


Then naturally a card was due for the Big Brother.


The parents were over the moon with these and loved the bright bold colours

Supplies :- 5cm Large alphabet dies, 3.5cm lower case alphabet dies

Inks : Distress Oxides


Family,Scrabble ?


As I said in my previous blog post, I  had a manic week last week. I have now recuperated and ready to go again.

My god daughter gave birth to a beautiful daughter and was in hospital for 5 days ( all good now and home ) so whilst she was away I had 5 lovely days spent with her son ( my god son)

As I enjoy making scrabble art frames, I was absolutely stuck with how I could interlock 3 names as I found no way possible. After this stumping me and frustrating me I decided to do a simpler one – still a treasured memory right ?

I also decided to do a Family Tree, as I have no laser writing equipment and to be honest my writing is awful, I decided to stamp their initials on the hearts.

I had problems galore with this as first I ran out of white spray paint, then I tried to use acrylic paint – total mess so they went into bin feeling rejected ( bit like myself ) but what did annoy me was the fact I had gold & silver acrylic paints and they worked a treated when testing them out, but uh uh not when I needed to make a family tree, typical huh ?

Anyway here are my final and finished craftiness

Thoughts ?

Baby Girl Part 2

Well here it is .. my completed Baby Girl card.

My cardstock finally arrived from C&C so could finally use my top score board. Oh my days how easy is that gadget ? !

The backing paper was printed off via Tattered Lace website, the letter blocks was created by using Distress Ink – Spun Sugar & Mulled Lavender.

Word cloud was used with CB Stamps from several sets

Took me quite a while to make but I have to say I am very happy with this.



Supplies :- Hammered Cardstock C&C, Distress Ink – Spun Sugar & Mulled Lavender,

Baby Girl

I am planning to make a New Baby Girl card ( well baby would not be old would she lol ) so I decided to print off some paper from Tattered Lace website and now I am stuck at which one to use.

I have an image in my head which I scribbled down on note paper but as usual it will either not match my image in my head which is what happens often.

The idea I have is to use a printed sheet as backing, make 8 little tags which will spell out Baby Girl, then my brain started to kick in ( not sure if good thing or not ) and I came up with another 2 ideas…Spell out Baby Girl in squares to try and resemble building blocks OR easy option just make 2 simple tags with Congratulations on one and Baby Girl on another, which is easiest option for me but not as challenging and I feel i need to push myself more and to use one of the bottom three and stamps words ie Precious, Little One, Baby Girl, Tons of Hugs, Welcome etc in pinkish colours ( like a word cloud )

Are you getting my image ??

Well I am now undecided on what backing paper to use, so I guess trim them all and see what looks best and hopefully my idea will work. I did have a beautiful pram image but then my printer decided to print it in  various other colours, not what the image I was looking at on screen. Odd as cartridge was full and I clicked best for printing options…So thats another job for Monday to see if I can get it printed correctly.
