Grandpa Father's Day Card


I have matt and layered an A4 card with tan, brown and then white card. I die cut the monkeys using a set of dies by Marianne. I attached a paper embellishment from my stash across my card front and then hung the monkeys on it sticking them to the card with P.V.A glue. I die cut the little square with a die from a nesting set from The Works. I added the letters to spell Grandpa that I cut with a Xcut die. I printed a sentiment and die cut it with an oval die from a Presscut nesting set and then using the next size in the nesting set I cut a tan oval to mount my sentiment before attaching it to my card.

New Baby Card


I have made an 8x8in white easel card. I have matt and layered the top and bottom with pink card and then white embossed card down one side of the top and bottom. I embossed the white card with a Tattered Lace embossing folder. I attached burlap down the centre of the top and the bottom. I then attached pink satin ribbon on top of the burlap. I die cut the vest and bib with Sue Wilson dies and attached them to the top of the card. I printed the personalised sentiment and die cut it with a die from a nesting set from The Works. I cut the next size in pink card to mount the sentiment. I printed the baby's weight and die cut it with a Presscut oval die from a nesting set and then cut the next size in the set and attached the white oval before attaching it to the card. I die cut the large bib with a Marianne die and used a Xcut die to cut the letters to add the baby's name to the bib. I printed personalised details to add to the base of the card and die cut them. I attached the large bib to my card using foam pads so the bib will act as a stopper. I completed my card with pearl embellishments.

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 of 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.

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.

Exploding box with cake


I have been asked to make this exploding box with a wedding card inside for a friend.

I have used the colour scheme of the wedding. I made the box using the measurements that you will find in the tutorials on my blog. I used navy card on the inside of my box and navy and white patterned paper on the outside of my box.

I printed personalised details including names, date and venue.

I printed the details and die cut them with dies from a set from The Works. I used the next size in the nesting set and navy card to cut elements so I could mount the white card with details.

I added these to each side of the box.

I made the 3D cake using circles and strips of white card.
I added satin ribbon and lace trim around the cake and added small paper flowers on the cake and on to each side of the box. I die cut a scalloped circle with a Xcut die and attached that to the centre of my box and then added the cake. I completed my box with flat backed pearls

A personalised birthday card for my sons to give my sister-in-law for her birthday.

I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with red card and then green and white gingham card from Anna Marie. I have used a topper from Hobbyhouse and attached it to a die cut red circle and a die cut tan scalloped circle. I attached a strip of red and gingham card down my card before adding a burlap and lace embellishment. I added my topper to my card. I die cut a personalised printed sentiment with a Sue Wilson banner die and cut the next size up in the set in red to mount the sentiment. I attached these banners to my card before adding various embellishments including beaded strawberries and pearl strands from Anna Marie, paper roses from my local artificial floral supplies and flat backed gems.

Football coach Thank You Card


A card for my sons football coach. All prepared to take to the match tomorrow so everybody can sign it.

I have printed a personalised sentiment and a football badge for the club that the recipient supports. I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with black card and white card with the personalised sentiment. I have added a strip of black across the centre of my card. The image has been die cut with an oval die from a Presscut nesting set and then added to a black oval that has been cut with next size die in the nesting set. I attached the ovals to my card. The stars that I added to complete my card have been cut using a punch.

Gardening card


This is a card for my DT post over at craftyhazelnutspatternedpaper.

I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with green card and then added a strip of green and white gingham card. I added an image from a Hunky Dory book and mounted that onto tan card before adding to my card. I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut that with an oval die from a Presscut nesting set. I then attached it to a larger tan oval cut with the next size in the nesting set. I attached this to my card. I die cut the watering can in mirror card using a Marianne die.
