Mondays Card.

I made this card today using the fabulous back2basics scalloped cards (only £6.50 for 50), a fantastic base suitable for nearly all cards.

I layered up fuchsia, pink with mirri silver & white card and used a double layer of double sided foam between the smaller square and larger square to give some wonderful depth.

The large bloom is taken from a dissected artificial flower (a wonderful way of getting large multi petaled fabric blooms), centred with a bunch of large white tea roses.

This would be a great card for, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and mothers day, you could change the clolor of it really simply and even add patterned papers of backgorund stamping for your own touch.

Sammy's Birthday

I told you that September was one of those months.
Today is Sam's (Big Sis) birthday she is once again at 28, if the rumour you get to 30 and go backwards is true. We have had a lovely dinner and a chocolate cake that looked very similar to the one Bruce is made to eat in Matilda.
She has had some lovely cards and pressies, and I though you might like to see mine.

The base card is a Tunnel Card from Kanban which has 2 in the pack comes in 4 different colourways and they are all great for Birthdays anniversaries etc

The large rosebud heads are fantastic and I just touched up round the petals with a Sakura Stardust to give it a bit of bling and a Bee Crafty Bloom from the flower patch. I have also used Card Candy down the side as well as Crystal Brads both in the scallops and as the centre of one of the flowers on the centre piece.

The Happy Birthday peel off is one of our favourite to stock instore as it is fun and quirky but still very useable for all sorts of Birthday Cards. We stock gold and silver peel offs so I have coloured this one in with a Black ProMarker.

We have got lots of ideas, projects and products and CHALLENGES coming up for over the next few months so keep your eyes peeled on the blog or facebook.

As always we love to get your feedback/input so if you have any ideas for products you'd like us to stock, challenge ideas, workshop/demo suggestions or some ideas you;d just like to throw at us, either message us via facebook, e-mail the shop at or give us a call 01386 831 123.

A Couple of Crazy Card Weeks

That is what we've all had you know that fortnight of the year where you need half a dozen cards all in the same fortnight, I have two a year, the first fortnight in July and the first fortnight in September.
We have had Julie (Mum & Boss) and Bill's (Dad & Dude) Anniversary, Alex's 8th Birthday, My friend Laura's birthday, Abi's second Cousin Imogens 1st Birthday just loads & loads.

Some of these I forgot to take pictures off at the time so will re~acquire at some point to get some photos.
I did have the prescence of mind however to take photos of this one which I made for Laura's 28th Birthday.
I made it using 2 CD's, punched with a Crop a Dile & secured with ribbon,
Lots of Blooms of course, tea roses & Bee Crafty Blooms all matched up for a fantastic overall effect.
The message is a peel off coloured with a Green Identipen & accented with a Crystal Sticker

The Butterfly is made using 3 identical butterfly peel offs, stuck to each other and then the CD to create a 3D 'free' winged effect.

I do also have images of Imogens 1st Birthday card which I will put up later this week accompanied by the one I made for her christening which I was really chuffed with earlier this year.

Thanks for Looking
