I really now enjoy die-cutting and recently bought the eBosser! It is simply MAR-VELL-OUS!!! Takes all the strain away from turning handles on Cuttlebug, etc. Altho, and some of you will appreciate this, I inadvertently cut through the magnetic sheet!!! I now have a couple of frames for photos on fridge door! Ah well, we all have to learn some time and we do learn from our mistakes! I have my staple Spellbinders but simply LOVE Tattered Lace Dies and now buy the magazines. I think Stephanie Weightman is so talented, and along with Nancy Watts, they make a great team. I have used one of her dies (the flourish off the Rocking Horse) here along with what is in my die-cutting box. As I really enjoy Decoupage, I made the new baby card for a friend's new grand-daughter, and the boy/girl card using Tattered Lace and Marianne Dies.


Three cards for special friends. I don't know how I managed it, but I forgot one of my best friend's 50th birthday and had to give her a 'belated' card! I felt awful. The 16 card was for another friend's daughter and she loves Art Deco, hence the card choice. And finally, the 40th card was for another friend's birthday and as she had a party,  and is not one to wear a dress, I couldn't resist making this style of card. 

This is a card I made for a friend's anniversary. This time it is from My Craft Studio, Deco Follies. My friend Ann gave it to me as a 'wee cheer-me-up' pressie and I have used it several times as I love the images on it. I used papers from Docrafts and decoupaged the images, adding feathers and some flowers to decorate. 

Happy Summer Crafting!

Have not been on blog for such a long time, I have forgotten how it works! Anyways, here goes.  I have been busy over past couple of years crafting but just seem to forget to come on and update blog - will really have to try harder and do it!

Going to start at the end of last year, Christmas actually. Here are a couple of cards I made for my wonderful Aunt and my very best friend from childhood and her partner. They are from the Debbie Moore Art Deco Christmas CDRom and it is just fabulous, so many images to choose from! I hope you like what I created!

I made this card for Ronnie's young cousin who was getting married recently -Scott & Maria Congratulations to you both for a happy long life together.  I used wrapping paper for the 'happy couple' and decoupaged it. I embossed the message and then used FlowerSoft to frame everything. Really pleased the way it turned out altho' I say it myself!!!  I hope you like it too.

Our neighbour, of some 30odd years, is leaving to move up north to Grantown on Spey.  Going to really miss him. I just wanted to make a card which reflected his move up there.  I had a pack of 'Scottish' stamps, which have been in the drawer for about 2yrs! and this is the first time I've used them, shocking eh! He loved this and I was so pleased.  Hope you do too.
Been a busy bee this past couple of days as Ronnie and I are going to my friend Eleanor's daughter's 21st tonight.  As she adores tatty bear, I made this card using wrapping paper and making up flowers.  I used the ever ready Houghie Board, Deco Design, and trimmed card with Martha Stewart Punch.  Gift Box contains a Gift Card and a little tatty bear hold 21, so cute and it all JUST fits in box! Phew lucky eh?  Well off to get glammed up!
