Special card for my daughter's 17th birthday 

This card download is proving very popular on CraftsUPrint

I sold the above card at a craft fair and it will be winging its way to South Africa!!

Hello...... all my new followers. What a pleasant surprise on this lovely sunny morning to see that I have gone from 20 up to 31!!! Welcome to you all, I hope you enjoy looking at all my cards.
I have been very busy lately as I've had lots of orders but here are some of the cards I have been making. These large DL cards from CraftsUPrint are a real hit with my customers and they are so easy to do. Once layered up I finish off with (just a little) Stickles glitter lol. It certainly makes a difference to the finished article.

That's all for today ladies. I'm out for the day today to a Police Open Day with my children as my son is wanting to join the police when older. It's a lovely sunny day so hopefully we might come back with a tan also!
Bye for now, happy crafting.

More CUP cards

Hi all. Well I've had a few days off work with my children and have managed to get a decent amount of crafting done. I've had some steady orders coming in and a couple of things possibly in the pipeline. Here are some more pictures of some cards from CraftsuPrint. I am lucky enough to have these on the site under the sheet that's available so every time it is now purchased I get a few pennies. May only be pennies but if u look after the pennies the pounds look after themselves!!!

Thanks for looking. More pictures to be posted soon as I'm sitting cutting out daily and trying to make up as many different ones as possible. They are getting a wonderful response from many.
Happy crafting.

CUP Word cards

Hi all, hope you are well
Just a quick post today to show you some of the latest cards I have been making. They can all be purchased from Crafts U Print by clicking on the link on the right hand side of this page. I've used them the size that they come (large DL) but if you prefer you can alter them and make smaller.

I've decoupaged the top layer on each card and then finished off with stickles around the words and also around the edge of the card.
I hope you like these. Please visit again soon as there are more cards in the pipeline lol.
Happy crafting

Birthday Boy

Hi all
Been very busy lately so I do apologise for not updating here.  Really must get my finger out and post regularly.
Just a quick post today to show you the 8 x 8 card I made for my darling son Connor on his 12th birthday yesterday. All he wanted present-wise was a bridge camera as he loves taking photos and is quite a little poser so his card was made along this theme.
I found these digi stamp images and then coloured them with promarkers. The frames were cut using 2 nestabilities dies and then once it was all mat and layered I finished off with the usual stickles around the edges and some card candy.  He was over the moon with it!
This is a picture of his cake I had made by a friend of mine. She is an absolute whizz and I was totally gobsmacked when she delivered this. Connor loves militaria items and when he saw this his smile was enormous.  It is all edible and it is also gluten free so Im able to share it with him!! It looks too good to eat but we had to finally cut some this morning and it tasted as good as it looks.
Im off to do some crafting today after I've been for a lovely walk in the sun. Have a great day whatever you are doing.
Happy crafting

First effort with Pans Pastels

Hi all, hope you are well.
On Thursday I had a crafty day with my lovely mum and she showed me how to use Pans Pastels. I missed a class with the dear Eileen at Allhallows last week as I was suffering with an awful cough and cold and didnt want to spread my germs. As I would like to buy some PP with my birthday money I needed to have a go first. We did very well and tried a variety of techniques.
Colouring card and stamping then adding image on top of stamped image 
Stamped image and added onto coloured card 
Used a brass stencil for this flower image after colouring card 
Coloured 3 separate circles and then stamped image on top 
Coloured card, made sun, used mask for boy image and finished by stamping birds 
Coloured card, stamped flowers and saying and finished off with white gel pen.
All pictures were mounted and then I added Stickles around the edges to finish off.
I'm looking forward to taking part in Eileen's class in May and will hopefully have some of my own Pans Pastels before then!!

Please come back and visit soon, happy crafting x
