Punched animals

Good evening

Well, I had a good think about it and finally decided to show you all my R2D2 frog and other punched animals.  Why R2D2.............well, I did not quite angle his legs correctly yesterday when I was creating these fabulous creatures at Jan's, http://janscardscraftsandmusings.blogspot.com/, my SU upline.  We had a group get together Jan, myself and Kaz, http://kazzellscrafts.blogspot.com/, much laughter erupted but still, he's cute in his own way and looks right at home amongst his "friends"

Punches used:  Almost all the SU punches! Only very small exageration.......

Pretty Flower!!

Good Morning

Came across a tutorial yesterday to make a flower out of tissue paper!  Well........I did not have the exact tools for the job, needless to say I liked the idea so headed off into my craft room and this is what I came up with.  I'm very pleased with it, even if I do say so myself!

Card holder with love note

Good Morning All

A few days off blogging spending some time in the garden, however a bit chill's at times! 

Thought I'd show you a little card holder and love note - we actually started this at our Coventry training day but I've since done a bit more work on the box as it was rather bare, here we go.........

Happy New Baby

Good Evening All

Happy Moments

Good evening

Had a lovely day today, woke up to bright skies with sunshine to follow, which has stayed all day all be it a little chilly outside.  This in turn lead me to using my Happy Moments stamp set, which was part of SAB and is unfortunately no longer available to purchase......, there are however some other bits and bobs on this card that are currently available and are lovely to use such as the shimmer paint which I have used to accent the butterfly, flower and a few other swirls.

Craft Class today!

Good Evening all

Been a lovely day in Shropshire today, craft class this morning and then a lovely bbq with friends in the afternoon.

Class was wonderfull this morning, we made a card and stamped the envelope to match and a treat box, the box base made itself a bit of a challenge but hey........that's what crafting's all about, challenge and result, which is what we achieved in the end. Although we all used the same stamp set, every project was different as each ladies random stamping and ribbon placement gave a different result!

Something a little different

Good Afternoon

Lovely afternoon here in Shropshire and we're set to see more of the sunshine this weekend as far as current predictions go.  You've got to love it!!

Well, thought I'd show you something a little different today, there are so many ways that we can put our stamps and punches to good use, so if you want to call this "recycling" please do by all means.  The plastic containers used were originally something that buttons and brads came in but now they're filled with sweeties and messages. The hearts are from a punch but using the "negative"

Punch Used: Heart to Heart (negative)

Good Morning All

Well, I've been having a go at making a flower, my SU sister Kaz,  http://kazzellscrafts.blogspot.com/, has a lovely tutorial on her blog for an oval flower and she's going to send me some ovals to play with.  I thought that I'd give it a go with a small round punch.  Very fiddly as I used the 1" punch but I'm pleased with the result.

Sendin Birthday Wishes

Good Afternoon everyone

Thought that I'd share a birthday card with you today.  It's going to slowly make it's way across the water to South Africa in time for my brother's birthday next week I hope! The tortoise is therefore quite appropriate really as the post seems to take "forever"!  I hope he likes it.

A Bird on a branch

Good Morning

Yesterday was such a beautifully sunny day in Shropshire, let's hope that today bring's more of the same as everything looks so much better in the sunshine.

The card for today is done using the new Extra-Large Two-Step Bird punch.  This is a beautifull punch, quite heavy but allows you to punch out the bird, wing and branch in one step and then combining them to make the bird on a branch!  You can do it all in one colour as I have or you can punch out the elements in different card/paper and combine it that way (another project for another day).

Punches used: Two-Step bird punch, 1" circle punch, 1/2" circle punch

Stamp set's used: It's beautifull wheel, Circle of friendship

Craft Class Yesterday!!

Good Morning Everyone

I thought that I'd show you the two projects that we did in class yesterday.  Three ladies came along to class and we enjoyed doing a scrapbook page and making a card.  I never finished my scrapbook page in class as I was helping the lovely ladies with theirs, which all turned out exceptionally well!  I was very proud of their work.

Beautifull Flowers

Good Evening All

I've had a busy day today, craft class this morning which was great fun.  We created a 6 x 6 page and a card.  I'll post the pictures tomorrow possibly, or Monday all depending on how my day goes as it will be my Birthday tomorrow.  I've received some lovely cards too which are proudly on display on my mantlepiece.

The most beautifull bouquet of flowers arrived for me from my husband for my birthday this year, he had them sent on Thursday so that I could enjoy them all weekend.  Thought I'd share them with you.

Scrapbook Page

Good Morning

Good Friday today and we're told on the news this morning that we've all forgotten what it's about - especially the youngsters' who believe it's all about the chocolate eggs!

Tomorrow I'm having a scrapbook class so thought that I'd show you all a page from my scrapbook of memories.  Sadly both dog's in the pictures are a memory, Barnaby the Staffie and Abbigail the SPCA special. It's lovely to be able to remember these two happy dogs this way.
