Christening & christmas fairies

We went to our neighbour's baby boy's christening today, so I was able to use my new stamp! I stamped the image a few times, then layered them up, I really like the effect, the background card was embossed with the dots folder on my cuttlebug! With some gems added & ribbon, I was really pleased with the results!!

I was asked if I could make some christmas fairies, and with a bit of pixie dust here they are!
I like them but I would as I made them, hehehe, all comments welcome! :) they could also work well as ballerina's with their tu tu's on, made by pink netting, & pink & white ribbon added to their wands!

It's a Boy!!

Hi, sorry I've been away for a few weeks holiday so havn't blogged in a while, everyone is having babies, and all seem to be boys!! So out came my cricut machine, to cut the words!

Then there were some birthdays too, I really like the "13" teenager card, as they are so difficult to make, I think this works really well, I'm making a 21st card this weekend too!!

LOL!!

Cute card & bookmark for Mollly

My daughter asked me to make her boyfriend's little sister a birthday card, as she was 7 this week, so I used my new little pony die, & of course my beloved teddy die,(from craftycat957) along with my new spellbinders scolloped circles, along with fairy design paper & this was the result.

I really wanted to make a ballerina teddy too, so after alot of drawing & cutting I decided to make it into a bookmark for her.

I think the ballerina has turned out really well, I think she's really cute!!

Paper Bag Baby Album

This was one of my first albums I made, with brown paper bags, my husband just couldn't get his head round it at first, he said "you bought brown paper bags?" lol, he later ate his words when I showed him the finished album, I really enjoyed making it. It take alot of work, but it was well worth it.

Scruffy Bears Wedding Keepsake Card

I made this card for my daughter, as she was attending a wedding. I also made the box which the card was presented in.

Scruffy Bears Anniversary Card

I made this card for my Dad & his wife for their anniversary. I have the sitting down scruffy bear die, cut them along with the hearts, champagne glasses, added design papers & ribbon & this is the result. My dad & his wife were delighted with it!

Princess Bear In a Pink Glittery Castle

I made this topper on saturday evening, after going to the craft fair at Aintree, I bought the template of the castle, & had a play with it. I add glitter to the tops of the castle towers, then stamped vines down the centre, added paper flowers, & details of bricks, along with boo bears that I cut out.

Pirate Bear Topper

The bear was cut from my bear die (bought from craftycat957) then the boat & hat were cut using my cricut machine. I'm really happy with the results.
