Floral Christmas Card


I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with red and then green embossed card. I embossed the green card using an Embossalicious embossing folder. I die cut the ovals using dies from a Presscut nesting set. I cut the ovals in red, green and white card. I attached these ovals to my card and then added the sentiment that I cut with a Sizzix die. I attached the wreath to my card using hot glue. I decorated the wreath with flowers, mistletoe, frosted beads and gold embellishments. Some of these embellishments are from Anna Marie designs and some are from my local artificial floral supplies. I completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops.

New Home Card




I have been asked to make a personalised New Home card.

I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with red and white spotty card and white embossed card. I embossed the white card with a brick effect folder. I die cut the various elements with Memory Box dies to resemble a house, these dies are great for this. I have printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a die from a nesting set from The Works and die cut the next size in the set in red card to mount the sentiment. I then added a small butterfly that I cut with a  die I had free with a magazine and then finally Tonic Nuvo drops.

Sweet cones



I purchased the cellophane cones and personalised stickers only. I went to a sweet warehouse to buy a variety of pink and white sweets.

I made up the sweet cones and sealed the top with some thread

The basket is from Dunelm. I attached the die cuts on the outside edge of the lining around the basket with a hot glue gun. I die cut them with a Sue Wilson. I then attached the satin ribbon and the pearl embellishments with hot glue. I scanned one of the stickers and enlarged it so I could print it to attach to the front of the basket. I die cut it with a Xcut scalloped circle die from a nesting set and then die cut a pink scalloped circle with the next size in the nesting set. I attached  these to the basket. I then added  the sweet cones to the basket.

Personalised Wedding Hangers


The bride wanted hangers for her dress and her two bridesmaid dresses.

I bought the padded hangers. I printed personalised sentiments and die cut them with a die from a nesting set from The Works. I then cut the next size in the nesting set in pink card to mount the sentiment. I punched a hole in these so I could thread some satin ribbon through and then tie it onto the hanger. I attached a rose embellishment to the brides hanger and pearl hearts to the bridesmaids hangers.

Brides Lucky Sixpence




I made this to give the Lucky Sixpence to my best friend on her wedding day

I used a small plain white box. I printed the well known rhyme and cut it into a narrow strip to fit around the box. I also added some pink satin ribbon. I attached the lace and pearl trim around the lid. 

I attached the final part of the rhyme to the lid of the box. I die cut it with a Xcut scalloped circle die and layered it onto a pink scalloped circle that I cut with the next size die in the nesting set.

I printed a personalised sentiment and attached it to the inside of the lid of the box.

I covered a piece of cotton wool with tulle to attach to the inside of the box with a hot glue gun and then added the peg embellishment. I covered the sixpence with tulle to enable me to "peg" it into the box.

Box for Wedding Cards




I made this box for wedding cards for the wedding I made stationery for.

I used a basket with a lid that I bought from Dunelm. I used a Sue Wilson die to die cut the elements that are attached to the lining on the box. The is the same die that I used for the invitations. I attached these with my hot glue gun and then attached pink satin ribbon along the top of the die cuts and then added the pearl embellishments. I used the satin ribbon to tie lengths between the top and base so the top will stand up. I then added more of the fancy die cuts and satin ribbon diagonally across the top. I printed the letters individually and die cut them using the Die'sire Create a Card Stacey Base nesting dies. I cut the two tone pinks in the next sizes in the set. I attached the Marianne die cut above the letters and then trimmed the edge before attaching all the layers together. I then added the pearl embellishments with hot glue. The letters match the place settings and the table numbers.

Wedding table number


I used the Die'sire Create a Card Stacey Base nesting dies to make the table numbers. I used the largest size and linen card to make the base and cut the edge with my guillotine. I used the next size in the nesting set to cut the pink layer after cutting the edge with my guillotine I attached it to the base layer. I printed the Table 5 and die cut it with the next size down in the nesting set. I die cut the lacy element with a Marianne die. I attached that to the final layer and trimmed the edges before attaching it to the pink layer. I then completed with the pearl embellishment. I made two for each table to add back to back in the stand.

Guest book


This is a Guest Book I made for special friends. They tied the knot last Thursday. I used the Tonic Memory Book dies to create this



This project has been used for my DT post over at craftyhazelnutspatternedpaper






Lots of people asked me "how long did it take you to make it?", it took a while but I loved every minute of it and to hear the guests reactions was priceless.

I have used Tonic Studios
Memory Book dies and numerous other dies to decorate my book. The one on the cover is a Sue Wilson die which I also used on the invitations. I also used the satin ribbon and embellishment to match the invitations.

Son birthday card


This is card for my Father-in-law do give my husband for his birthday.  I have covered my 8x8in white card with brown card and white embossed card. I embossed the white card with a Crafts Too embossing folder. I added hessian trim where the brown card and embossed card meet,  I mounted the image  with brown card and then added it to my card. I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with an oval die from a Presscut nesting die set. I used the next size in the nesting set to cut a brown
oval to mount the sentiment and then added it to my card.

Floral Wedding Card



Another wedding card. This is the card I made to send myself.

I have matt and layered the top and bottom of my 8x8in white easel card with pink then white card. I have die cut the panels for the top of my card with a Sue Wilson striplet die. I have cut 3 panels and attached them to white card. I added satin ribbon where the strips meet. I attached the completed element to the top of my card with foam pads. Using the Sara Davies Bridal Bouquet die I have made the roses in pink card and cut the foliage in green and white. I die cut the sentiment using a Tonic die and added it to a white oval that I cut with a Presscut die from a nesting set. I die cut a pink oval with the next die in the nesting set to mount the white oval.

I attached the ovals to the striplets and then assembled the floral embellishments using a hot glue gun.

I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a Tonic rectangle die from a nesting set and attached it to a pink rectangle. I attached these to the base of my card using foam pads so it will act as a stopper for the easel.  I printed the date and venue and die cut it with a Presscut die and added that to the base of my card.

I completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops.
