A quick post...

before bed.  It's been a long day!!!

A cute baby card to celebrate. A4 again.  Using the silhouette and just a few sheets of paper, some card candi and stickers!  

Will add more notes on what was used tomorrow when I have more time!

Tiered Cake Card...

I am determined to keep updating my blog till I've caught up with all the cards I've made.  This time, it's one from August!!!

Another A4 card, for a special lady...

The papers I used were K&Co Scrap Pad To Go ~ Chocolate Neopolitan collection and 2 sheets of gold mirri board. Plus one sheet of white card stock for the cake print out.
The cake is printed from the Block Party Portfolio from Quickutz from my silhouette software.  I added the candles onto the image and added 5 more separately on the page as I wanted to cut them all out including the cake.  I coloured all of the cake and candles with promarkers and used gilding flakes on the cake stand.  Then cut it all out and layered it so the candles were decoupaged. 

I used the stately circles from Spellbinders for the rosette using all the same card as before and the ribbon's and button are from my stash. The hat pins are from Create & Craft and the gems from my local craft shop, I think they were papermania brand.

I wanted to do something a bit different and hadn't really used the images for printing, just cutting.  I should use the silhouette and the software more.  All the layers were stuck with foam pads and the ribbon and hat pins with a glue gun.  

Well after a kids party turned into an all day outing it's definitely time for bed at 9.30pm! This weekend I have made 4 more A4 cards as well so they will all be up here once received.

Watch out pirates ahoy...

Back again, I've been so busy making cards, running round after the family, decorating and working that I have really neglected this blog, time to remedy that!

I have mostly been making cards again, but I did find time for a bit of scrap booking one Sunday morning...

The picture has been staring at me for months, in a rack of papers but where I could see it.  Taunting me!

First I chopped up the paper to make a card with my son for one of his friend's birthdays as I knew it was a bit bold for a whole scrap booking page...

We made this together...

Then a week later I did this! 

I was attacked one Sunday morning in bed by pirate's.  As you can see they were quite intimidating and did get their breakfast demands met!

I am getting asked about Christmas cards now and only have a few left over from last year!  One year I will actually start them in January!  No new ones made at all so that is the next project.  Luckily I have all my Christmas stuff in one place so time to dig it all out.  

In the meantime I will be posting more pics of all the large A4 cards I have been making...
