Crafting Sunday

Good morning everyone. What a difference a week makes. This time last wk I was worrying about how to get to work because of all the snow and today almost all the snow has gone because its been raining all night.  Yippee lol.  I wont be venturing anywhere today tho as its still too cold so another day indoors with the crafting goodies!!
Here are some more cards I've made from the La Pasche disk. I love it. I have got a few orders to do tho so Im going to have to have a little break from it.  Im trying to plan ahead a little this year so some of these cards are spoken for!! My son loves anything to do with army so this is for him from his sister. (His birthday is the beginning of May!!)

As usual they are all finished off with Stickles with does give them a little something as a final touch!!

Please come back soon, have a great Sunday and happy crafting.

More La Pasche...

Hello everyone, hope you are well.
After a fun filled day the other day with Eileen I now have some more finished cards from the La Pasche disk. Eileen was so impressed with the pics that she has now ordered them also, hence I got the blame for her spending money yet again when I visited. The fact that I've signed up to one of her amazing workshops also is neither here nor there!!! lol

Blue Teddy 
Couple in bath
Once I'd cut, layered and mounted the pic I finished off with matching Stickles around the edges. It just gives it a little extra and makes it look nicer (or so I think lol.
More pics to come tomorrow as I just cant stop making these at the mo. I have a few orders to get done at the mo so will have to have a bit of a change for a while.
Have a lovely weekend everyone and happy crafting.

Bulldozer, Electrician & Bookworm

Hi all
I've had a couple of productive days so far using my new decoupage disc from La Pasche and will be having a day in today in the warm doing more crafting. I should have been going to our monthly crop today with the other crafty ladies at Allhallows Village Hall but due to not knowing what the weather is doing it has been cancelled :( .
The first 3 cards I've made include a Builder/digger driver
 an Electrician
 and one suitable for a Bookworm!!
These cards come on a page with the backing papers and the greeting so its just a case of cutting it all out, finding a matching background card and making up the decouage. As usual I've finished off with stickles around the edges to give it a bit of bling.

I hope you like these. I will be posting more in the next few days including some I've made from the Making Cards magazine. I've made a New Year's Resolution to use up free papers from the magazines as its not always what I like that sells, sometimes you just need to make something different to catch the eye of people.
Anyway, bye for now everyone.
Happy crafting

Crafty Day Today

Hi all
Hope you are well. I'm still feeling rather down at the mo so today I'm going to sit and have a crafty day. I have lots of things I need and want to make so I'm going to see how productive I can be!!
Just wanted to let you know about 2 fab CDs I purchased using some xmas money.....they are from Imag-e-nation and are The Big Pair 2012 CD Roms.  This includes a CD from Just Inklined with over 200 digi images. Most images are available from their site but some are solely on the CD. The other disk is from La Pashe and has lots of decoupage etc on it. Many of the pages are coloured images of the digi stamps so if you want to save a bit of time with colouring they are ideal. I have already decided on some birthday cards I will be making.  They are £15.99 each or £20 for the pair so it would be rude not to buy the pair wouldnt it!!!!
Anyway I just need to nip to the shops before getting down to some craft so please come back soon as I will post pics of what I achieve.
Happy crafting

PS. Im out for a crafty xmas meal tonight with our craft club from Demelza House Children's Hospice so I'm looking forward to that also.

My Nan

Hi everyone
Just a short post today to say I havent forgotten you all. I really cant get my head round to crafting at the mo as I have been working so much and my days off have involved trying to declutter some of my house and sort my craft area out.
Yesterday my family and I lost a very special person. My Nan passed away at the grand old age of 98yrs and 1 month exactly. We were expecting it but it was still a shock and very upsetting to us all. We are safe in the knowledge now that she has been reunited with her darling husband Len who left us 5yrs ago on 23rd December. I can just imagine the smiles on their faces once more.
Anyway I hope to post a crafty post soon but for now I am spending today with my family, apart from my children who unfortunately I had to send to school this morning. They have some lovely friends though that I know will look after them for the day.
Bye for now, take care.

Kindness/Happy Jar

Hi everyone, Happy New Year to you all.
Today's post is of a jar I have decorated for my daughter. We saw a post on Facebook about every time something good happens that makes you happy, you write it on a piece of paper and put it in the jar. At the end of the year open the jar and read all the good notes to remember all the happy things that happened through the year. A group appeared on Facebook to do with Kindness jars which is along the same lines with the notes being about acts of kindness you've come across.
When I decorated this jar I filled it with strawberry bonbons which Sophie is partial to so she is now eating them to hurry and get an empty jar!!!
 I also made my mum a jar to keep in her craft room. It is filled with Wine Gums which she is also partial too and I added a label saying 'Mum's Crafty Nibbles Jar'. After gluing the paper on I added stickles around the edges, ribbon and gems.
I'm going to be making another Kindness/Happy jar to use myself once I've sorted all my new craft goodies out!!
Happy crafting, please visit again soon.
