Christmas In June!!!

Well it might only be June but my favorite time of year is Christmas and i absolutely love making Christmas cards!!! As i am going to be doing a few fairs & stalls this year i thought i would get a wriggle on and start making & stockpiling Christmas cards now!!!

Here is todays card using one of my favorite Penny Black stamps & my favorite paper!!

This is one of the only times i have used Copics to colour in Penny Black hedgehogs as usually i watercolour them! I am pleased with how it came out though & will now work on shading it better! Unfortunately the picture doesn't pick up the shimmer paper and glitter on the image. It really done sparkle in real life!
Supplies - Penny Black Stamp, Winter Wonderland Paper, Copics, Stickles, Mini Message, Prima Flower & Button

Fathers Day!

After seeing a fabulous project in a cardmaking magazine, think it was last months Simply Cards & Papercraft i thought i would have a stab at making a Altered Wine Carrier for Fathers Day. I did make two, one for my dad and one for my partners dad however for some reason i only took a photo of one even though they were both different!

I absolutely love this paper, but am running out of it fast and cannot for the life of me find any stockists that still currently do this range! I still don't have any new papers and seriously lacking in mens papers!! These are quite simple to make but can be frustrating to get it exactly right with the container being round, alas i managed it!!

I have now found the card i made!

I used a fabulous stamp from Eat Cake Graphics - gotta love em they are sooo cute. I teamed this up with some summery DCWV Papers and also made the image 3D!

Supplies - Cardboard Wine Carrier, Paper Salon Paper, DCWV Paper, Eat Cake Graphics Stamp, Bazzill Cardstock, Doodlebug Stickers

A few more...

Here are a few more cards i made a while ago that i thought i would add to my blog!! They are all extremely quick & easy cards to make, which my eldest daughter helped me make! Even though they are simple and not my usual style, they have been extremely popular!!

These were made using the lovely new range from Dovecraft. I simply used the Cupcake Decoupage Pad and i found some Pebbles Inc Rub Ons to finish them off. I plan to make a matching binder or box so i can do a little coordinating set.

I picked up these groovy little 3d Stickers from a local value store but blimey they are sooooooo good value. Got 2 A4 sheets full of 3d stickers for £1.20!! They were meant to be for Lissy but we decided to share them!! I teamed them up with some coordinating cardstock and stuck to a simple yet striking design. Fabulous for boys cards!!

And then some cards

Now i have always loved the fantastic Gorjuss Girls designs and i absolutely love the new die cut decoupage versions of them! They are just so sweet and brilliant for making fast, quick & easy cards!!
Now here are a few that i made in minutes with the help of my eldest daughter Lissy (only 4yrs!). She likes to help mummy put 3d foam pads on everything!!

I try to do as many different types of cards as i possibly can as all my customers that buy my cards want something different!! Stamping is still my favorite though, especially with cute girly charactors & animals!! I have been told i need to do more floral and also mens cards! Tricky as i don't have much of either in my stash at the moment, lol!! Another reason to shop!!

Quick Bits n Bobs!

Here is some quick things i put together for the craft stall i mentioned in my previous post!! It was a bit of a last minute thing so i only had a couple of days to get anything ready!! My pet hate is being rushed too!! GGRRRRR! lol
Little Notepads: These are made using the cute die cut decoupage by Paper Mania and matching papers. Added some cute green jewels to match and of course scallop punches!!
More Slightly Bigger Notepads: I used the new range by Papermania for these. I used the clear stickers and put them onto white cardstock and mounted them onto matching paper that i used to cover the front of the notepads.

Post It Note Holders: The top two are made with DCWV Papers & Chipboard and the bottom two are made with K&Co matching papers and embellishments.

Sweetie Jars: Mini Jars filled with Mini Imperials with matching papers & chipboards by DCWV, from an old TSV.

Decorated Homemade Lemon Curd Jars: These lovely summery papers are also from the DCWV set i have had for some time! I am eventually getting round to using them!

My Craft Stall!!

Well my new router just turned up so now i have proper internet back!!! It's been so long and you have no idea how amazing it is compared to gprs on mobile broadband!!

So here is some piccies of my latest few bits n pieces i have been doing. I will make a few posts today so all my bits and pieces are uploaded & will also update my galleries too!

Here are the pics of my stall i had at my boyfriends parents house, it was there villages Gardens Open Day! I did extremely well and sold lots of cards which is great so i can now afford to get a few new bits and pieces at Newbury next weekend!!
I never knew i had such a stockpile of stuff i had made & this is only part of it!!! I'm hoping to once again supply some local stores to fund my stash habit!!!
I shall find all my latest creations & get them posted on here & i will enjoy once again catching up on your blogs & creations too!!

Where has the time gone??!!

Well lots of things have happened, i had a bit of a break from crafting as have been moving around a fair bit so i haven't had the time or space to unpack it all!! I have now finally got a nice new built flat in a lovely posh area of dorset lol. I also have more news..... i have another baby girl!! She was born 20th November 2009 called Jasmine Alanna Mai. She is nearly 7 months now so into everything and a very smiley girl just like her big sister Lissy.

I been sorting through my craft stuff and although sadly i did have to sell alot i still do have a fair bit of stuff. Just means i get to buy more exciting things! I am saving up to go to Newbury Artstamps as i do usually go so i am sure i will get some new rubbah amongth other bits and bobs!

Next week i get proper internet (hopefully) as currently im on mobile broadband and it doesn't like blogger to much so i will upload cards n photos and things when i can!!
