Testing Sunday

Before my upcoming hectic but happy weekend is upon me, I decided to finally have a test run with the edge dies I got from slow boat from China.

These cut like a dream and cannot wait to put them to good use when I need to make a card for a special event. Hardly have to use a pokey tool as the little pieces fall right out. BUT the one edge die on  top right hand photo, now that was another matter. I did struggle to begin with with this but as alot of other crafters have had same problem I feel relieved I am not doing anything wrong. Phew !

Aren’t they gorgeous ?

Christmas Cards

So sorry for delay in posting, I have been very busy with upcoming Christening.

I was asked to make 60 favour boxes which took me a weekend to complete. I then also decided to make a start on Christmas Cards using dies from slow boat from China. Have to say I am very impressed with how these came out.

Here are my makes from couple weekends. Hope you like them

Next weekend I will be very busy making 3 Cupcake Bouquets, Macarons and 2 Tiered Cupcakes for my soon to be god daughter 🙂

A Little Update

Sorry for lack of blog posts recently, I have been so busy with work, family and also prepping for an upcoming Christening.

As I mentioned previously my happy mail has almost arrived and now slowly drifting off as not waiting for many to arrive. Have to say I am so impressed with what I have so far and no doubt be ordering more in future.

As I had a rare weekend off, I finally got to test some of the dies and no doubt many of you will be familiar with the make of these. I did a trial run of Christmas Cards and also made a trial attempt at the ” favour” boxes as may need to make 60 of these for upcoming Christening.

Anyway here they are. Hope you like 🙂

Happy Mail Arriving

Well my happy mail from China is slowly all arriving, I say all arriving that is kind of incorrect as have quite a few more to come !

Had to have a play around with the new dies and I am very impressed. Also a while back I made my God daughters Christening Card, but when all the lovely dies arrived I knew I was not 100% happy with it so I re did it and I am alot happier.

Here are a few cards I made… Hope you like them

 

Aloha

So pleased that some of my happy mail from China is slowly ( and I mean slowly ) arriving.

As a fan of Hawaii Five O, I just love the bright colours and Hibiscus flowers so when I saw some Hibiscus backing paper my brain was working overdrive, which is a shame as often my images from my head do not materialise to what I want to achieve.

This die is perfect as comes with Palm Trees and 4 different sizes Surfboards.

These cards were very quickly done as wanted to make sure the die was fine and no problems.

I am sure there are many more ways to use this fab die but as still waiting for slow boat from China there is not much I can do until the other dies arrive.

Happy Father’s Day

Well Father’s Day is nearly here so had to get my thinking cap on. As my dad is a big fan of FC Barcelona and also wishes he had a VW Campervan what better way than to mix the 2 together.

The colour’s may not mean much to many of you but the top layer are FC Barcelona’s home colour’s and the bottom layer are their away colour’s plus the colour’s of Catalan.

Now my dad has a VW Campervan !

Baby Shower Tags

A lovely 3 day weekend thanks to a Bank Holiday Monday and I have so much to make. I wanted to make a start on my dad’s Father’s Day card and was due a die delivery today which is so appropriate for him but alas did not arrive, so I decided to crack on with an order someone asked me to make…. 25 Baby Shower Tags with specific colours of Blue, Pink and Silver.

I had alot of fun making these and when I sent over a proof of these they loved it ! which makes me a happy bunny. I will admit I have an alphabet stamp set but they were so fiddly so out came the laptop and printer which enabled me to create the personalised tags.

So tomorrow will see me doing more printing of background papers as have so many ideas in my head of what I would like to make 🙂
