New Baby exploding box



A personalised New Baby exploding box. There are some instructions under tutorials on my blog. 

I have used a Marianne die to create the shoes for the centre of the box. I printed personalised sentiments and die cut them to attach to the inside. I have added a die cut tag in the lid for the sender to write a message.

Frozen birthday card


I have covered my card with blue card from Hobbycraft.

I die cut the snowflake borders with a Sue Wilson die and attached them to my card and added ribbon to the borders.

I die cut the image with a Tonic die from a nesting set. I used the next size in the set to cut a white rectangle to attach my image to. I added a die cut sentiment and snowflakes that I cut with a punch.

For my topper I purchased some Christmas cards from M&S in 75% off sale that are Frozen themed and only a few cards in the box have a Christmas sentiment.

Birthday Card


This is my January post for craftyhazelnutspatternedpaper

Sorry for the delay in posting this onto my blog. I haven't been feeling myself for a while so I have needed a bit of encouragement to do some crafting and blogging.

I have used a cream 8x8in card and covered half of it with patterned paper from my stash. I added some lace across my card. I printed a sentiment and die cut it with a banner die by Sue Wilson. I cut the larger banners to layer the sentiment. I added some floral embellishments along with some flourishes that I die cut with a Cheery Lynn die. I die cut the numbers with a Tonic die and added them to a die cut that I cut with a die from The Works before attaching it to my card.

Golden Wedding Card


I had been asked to make a Golden Wedding Anniversary card.

I have made an A4 card and matt and layered it with brown pearlised card and cream embossed card. I embossed the cream card with a Crafts Too embossing folder. I die cut the book elements using a Tattered Lace die set. Using my Gemini Foilpress I foiled alternate pages of my book.

I printed a personalised sentiment and included it within one of the frames and a die cut a 50 using a Tonic die to add to the other frame. I made the flowers using a Die'sire quilling die. I completed my card with ribbon and flat backed pearls.

I had to make a quick card because I had missed a friend's birthday

I matt and layered my 8x8in white card with green card and gingham card.

I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a scalloped circle die from a nesting set and then cut a green scalloped circle with the next size die in the nesting set to mount the sentiment.
