Since i made any of these fold out cards and this week i had to make two ! the first was a bit tricky , for a man ! the second one was much easier it was for a nine year old girl .
My mojo had been missing all week and i really needed it for these !
Thankfully it came back this afternoon after i threatened myself with having to do housework if it did nt !
These cards are very difficult to photograph due to their size and they dont fit in the scanner either - so i am sorry for the dodgy camera work.Thank goodness i dont live in a bungalow - i need the stairs to take this pictures on !

scrapcard in a tin

I made one of these a while ago for my daughter's 18 th and a friend of mine saw it and asked if i would do one for her daughter, Portia's 21 st.
I made it and then forgot to get a picture of it .Ihad to wait for her birthday and ask her to take a pic and send it to me. I am rather pleased with it ,and thankfully so was Portia

Quilted wedding

i used the FQB" with this ring " collection from nitwits for this one . i have layered and padded the chapel and i gave it a quilted feel by using my tracing wheel to make stitch marks. i cut the charms with my sizzix dies from thick tin foil (recycled again from my milk tins ).
I added the date with tiny peel off stickers

Any way Chloe is now 3 weeks old ! .

Of all the people it could have happened to it had to be the boss did nt it !

Glittery girly Promarkers challenge

I had been asked by a good friend to make a card for her daughter 's 40 th birthday , she wanted something glittery and girly and surprisingly this was the theme for this week's Passion for promarkers challenge

I used this image from Charmed crafts as i think she is just beautiful .The background paper is from DCWV - all dressed up collection .I also used a glitter pen on top of the promarkers to make her dress and feathers shimmer. I i coloured and thentriple embossed chipboard numbers and added a final coat of glitter embossing powder , they looked as if they were made of enamel when they were finished . Her Name was cut from SCAL - i am just loving this now even if i am still on the basics !


Remember that sneaky peak ? well here it is in full , the new Halloween collection has just been released over at LILY BOOS BOUTIQUE .
Pop on over there and take a look , there are lots of fabulous designs and they are all very reasonably priced, i have made a card and a calendar page for next year, I am going to do a page for each month ,showcasing one of lily boos designs on each one , I used Scal to cut out the bats and the wording on the calendar all images are coloured withmy fabby promarkers
