Fabulous Shoes




Well I can see why this CD is called Fabulous Shoes. this is by Katysue Designs, which was on Create and craft last week.
I love it! The first card is a better colour as I used one step photo fix in PSP. maybe I should have done the others too. lol. They actually look in between the two, in real life.
the shaped cards I made using my new Grand Spellbinders Dies. Im loving making these shaped cards, such a change from the boring square and rectangles we usually use.
These cards are very simple as they will be going into my shop stand where I used to work.
Better get some housework done before I can play again. See you soon.

Megans Birthday Book










For this book I have used a Kaiser Crafts board house. I covered it with SU papers from last year. The brick roof paper is a free digi download I found online.
The Alice in Wonderland bits are from an Etsy shop here.http://www.etsy.com/shop/bydigitalpaper
Incase you are wondering, Megan is having an Alice in Wonderland themed party.
Here are the roses I cut on my Pazzles machine to stick onto 2 of the trees that my daughter has made.
I can't believe our Meggie is 8 on Thursday!!!!!
thanks for looking.

Kraftyhands topper cards again


I made these cards yesterday with a couple of Kraftyhands Toppers that were sitting on my desk.
I received my Go Kreate dies from Samuel Taylors on Friday, they are the Grande size XXL dies.
So had to have a play. I love this idea of cutting out the shape and folding in half to form the card. You will be seeing a lot more of these Im sure. lol.

Todays card is using the new Pink Petticoat papers. I love the colours of these papers. So fresh.




I am back to cutting roses on my Pazzles for my granddaughter's Birthday Party which is Alice in wonderland theme. She is having a tea party. the children have to come through the hole in the tree, which my daughter has painted on a sheet. It will be fixed inside the front door frame.
So this afternoon expect more hot glue blisters on my fingers while I glue the roses into shape.
I will show them once they are glittered.
