Thank You


Not sure what has happened to the blogs I follow and my followers on google but I am trying to sort out (hubby actually is trying to sort out).

This is the card we made at my class last night. Girls are loving the vintage and shabby chic look.

Another Joanna Sheen image and another adorable paper flower (well lots of flowers in one) definitely a box job and not an envelope for this one. Lace and beads were both stitched on by hand this time, and the Thank You stamped onto the paper and corners make the card look gorgeous.

Really love this one.

Whoopee my fringe scissors by Martha Stewart have just arrived from QVC … can’t wait to use them. Making my fringe flowers should be so much easier now… wish I had had them for this card.

Cute Boy


Allsorts Challenge 38 – Get distressed with buttons and bows….

As you know I love distressing and I wanted to use this beautiful baby boy image from Joanna Sheen…. Gave it a very soft look with lemon, blue and lace. Used the Hero Arts stamp – Climbing Vine to frame the image and delicately chalked the leaves and flowers, then dotted lots of liquid pearls around. Added two bows to the lacy bow, tied a bundle of blue cotton together, tweaked it and added in the centre. Three rather gorgeous pale blue buttons complimented the card just nicely.



Baby Tag Book


Simon Says this week New Baby and I have made this baby tag book.

The book is made from just one sheet of 12 x 12 paper and the stitching this time is by hand.

Pieces of cereal boxes were covered with paper to make the front and back covers of the book.

I then drew a template for the tags to fit into the pockets of the book and printed baby images onto them.

Used a MS punch for the border and the inside corners, added tiny pearls to the front and the inside of the book. Flower centres are tiny pearl brads. Stamped a little lamb image in the corner.

Stamped a doggy and lamb image on the inside of the book in the corners and then stamped again onto yellow paper, cut out and decoupaged over the images.

Used a circle punch to make the openings for the tags. Ribbon was added to tie the book together and the same ribbon was used for the tags.

Yummy Tag Books


Karen of the Madhatters taught me how to make these with 12 x 12 papers and I think they are really yummy.

Both are made with Anna Griffin double sided papers.

The stamping on the paper, not sure who the stamps are made by, bought the stamps from a little stand at Thorpe Park Craft Fair UK (now Farnborough Craft Fair) they are really fantastic for vintage work.

Images on the tags are from a CD by Joanna Sheen.

Aren’t they just divine
