One Direction

Well my mother in law asked me to make her a card for our great niece which is her great granddaughter.
One condition it had to be One Direction and I jokingly said one direction to the bin lol.
I used centura pearl card
Matted and layered with black card
And another layer of centura pearl. 
I got the picture from google.
And I added black pearl. And I used my favourite glue in the world collall all purpose.
I hope my mother in law likes it and I hope my great niece loves it.

Sympathy card

Well today I made a sympathy card for a family friend who lost her husband last week.
He was a lovely man whom loved rallying so much. 
For the last few days I sat at my desk thinking but couldn't muster a card up. And today I am seeing her for the first time since his death and had to make this card. 
I used centura pearl card and the decoupage sheet was a CUP sheet that I purchased a while ago. I printed the decoupage onto centura pearl card stock.
I hope I have done it justice. 
Also the verse which also came from CUP says.

Take some time in the silence
If you're feeling low.
To think upon their memories,
To bask within their glow.
I know its not easy,
To let a loved one go.
Your heart will continue grieving,
Because you loved them so.
But eventually it will get better,
I promise this for you.
And may the joy of being reunited one day,
Always help you through. 

I just hope that she will take comfort that I will be there for her xx

April's challenge - flowers


Well I decided to enter into the Crafter's companion monthly challenge blog which this month's theme was flowers.
I raided my Barkley paper pack and came out with this card.
The base card is centura pearl.
The card is the card from the paper pack which I cut down and placed onto centura pearl. The swing card I fixed onto the card and decoupaged Barkley & Purrdey,  I added pink and purple ribbon from my old stash.  I used the small rose die'sire die and cut the flowers using pink and purple core'dinations cardstock. And added clear jewels in the centre x

A special birthday card for a lovely little girl

Well after helping Franki in her shop at the weekend I was thinking of what card to make for Aimee as she is now 7.
So I got my Barkley paper pack and made her a card similar to the one Dawn Wheeler made on the four day deal. 

I made the white centura pearl card as my base, and I matted & layered with purple pearlised card, and again white.
I used my heart doillie die'sire die and cut it out using the purple pearlised card. 
The decoupage, sentiment and tag are from the paper pack kit. I used collall all purpose glue to stick the card and the pin flair silicone. 
I added purple ribbon and also gems.
Also I cut out the number 7 using the numerical die'sire die.

I hope Aimee likes her card. Thank you for popping by.

Bamboo paperpack

Well after rummaging through my large amount of craft stash as i needed to make 2 quick Mother's Day cards for my mam.

My 1st one 
I used my centura pearl card stock, 
And got my sizzix accordian die and used my ebosser to cut out 4 pieces.
And I stuck them together with red liner tape.
I took 3 images and 1 sentiment and stuck it down with the best glue in the world collall all purpose glue. 
I had a bow punch and cut out 4 red bows and mounted them onto the card using foam pads and put clear gems on the bows and on the end of the card. 

My 2nd card
I used an A3 card scored in half to make an A4 card (centura pearl card,
I then got black card and also printed acetate which was in the pack and uses pearl brads to fasten the acetate and black card together. The pearl brads I actually coloured them in using my spectrum noir pen.
I them used collall all purpose glue to hold the black card onto the base card.
I then put on the bamboo decoupage on and also the sentiment and also peel off. 
Thank you for looking xx
