In a Swirl!

Once again, I bid you good morning.  It is going to be a lovely day today, apparently the hottest so far this year.  The card I am about to present, is for the Wednesday group of ladies, hoping that it will appeal to their palette!

The card is 20cm x 20cm.  The papers I have used are Maya Design.  The swirl background is Spellbinders Mystical Embrace.  The lattice background is also a die from Spellbinders, Grateful Lattice.  For the central topper, I have matted the sentiment on one of the dies from Spellbinders Heirloom Legacy, beneath this is a floral layer cut from another of the dies from the Mystical Embrace set from Spellbinders.  Finally, there are two larger dies right at the base, these are Xcut Docrafts Doorplate.  The flowers are cut from Heartfelt Creations Vintage Floret and I have used the matching stamps from Heartfelt Creations.  The leaves are Memory Box, Fresh Foliage.  Hoping you have a wonderful Easter Monday, hugs Annie xx

My First Shoe

Good Afternoon everyone, how lovely and sunny it has been and still is too!  I am going to present a New Baby Girl card/gift today, this is something else for my crafty stall on Saturday which I thought I would share with you all.

frame & baby box 006

This little box measures 12cm x 9cm and is approximately 4cm deep.  I made the box using the Crafter’s Companion Score Board, the paper is Papermania Capsule Collection.  The little girls shoe is from Joy Craft, Bille’s Baby Shoes.  I have decorated the shoe and the box with ribbon, pearls and lace from my collection.  I cut a hole in the box of the lid with a Spellbinders Oval Nestabilities die and placed acetate over the aperture.  The It’s a Girl wording is from Cheery Lynn Sentiments. The little flower is punched out from a Tonic punch.  See you all again soon, hugs Annie xx

Let Them Eat Cake!

Good Afternoon All, today, something a little different again.  I have made this “cake” – it could be given for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings or a myriad of other celebrations!

Daisies on Your Wedding Day

Good Evening once again everybody, I hope you are all well.  I am going to show you a card which I made for my stall.  It isn’t quite as elaborate as usual as I am not able to spend quite as much time pouring over the decorations.  Still, I hope that you will all like it.

Pearls & Roses For You

Hello Everyone, I am continuing with my makes for my craft market but I decided to share a few more items with you.  I have another heart to offer you, this time, it is for an adult – perhaps a friend, your Mum, female relative or possibly a bride.  I hope it takes your fancy!
