Male 50th Birthday card

I had to make a 50th birthday card for a friend recently.The greeting is on the tag which is in the pocket on the front of the card. I used the new Traveller stamp set as the guy who received this card loves photography.I went for soft suede as my colour scheme this time - just for a change !

Gift Bag

I made this cute little gift bag for a draw prize at one of my Stampin Up events recently. The lady who won the prize really didn't mind what was in the bag as she thought the bag was so pretty!

I love these Chevron Tag A Bag Gift bags! I decorated it with a Doiley, a little bit of Burlap, some Gold Sequins, Designer Series Paper and a Petite Petal. A cute little clothes pin finishes it off .

Mojo Monday Baby Card

I needed something to help me with my mojo this week! I usually design my cards around my classes or for someone in particular, so now that I am on summer break I want to make cards for my pleasure again. Trouble was getting my creativity flowing again !! So I thought I would go to one of my favourite sketches- Mojo Monday,  for help. This is what I came up with.

 The stamp set that I used is called Baby, We've grown and the designer paper is from the new 2014 annual catalogue called Lullaby. I used Crisp Cantaloupe as my base card .I am so looking forward to receiving my order containing my goodies from the new catalogue!

A Special Birthday Card !

I was asked to make a special card for a lady's 65th birthday, but not to mention 65 ! These is my favourite colour combo at the moment - Crumb Cake, Strawberry Slush, Soft Sky and Very Vanilla .I used the beautiful En Francais background stamp which I am really sorry to see retire .

Baby cards

Its been ages - sorry !! I have had computer problems and life has been way too busy . Its not that I haven't been crafting , I have! My son has gone to university and he is the one I turn to when I need help with the computer side of crafting .I'm not sure if I will be able to repeat this when he isn't here but I will try! It has taken me a wee while to get used to this new computer and I am not very patient with technology so I would rather not put myself through any undue stress.
I had a class last week and we played with the new "Label card framelits dies". They are gorgeous ! You can get 2 cards in an A4 sheet of card , so very economical .There are 9 dies in each packet with various shapes to use .
I will show you more examples another time (maybe next Sunday if Ben is at home ) :)
