Phoebe's 4th Birthday!!!!

In May,  my eldest daughter was 4 and so these were the cards that I made for her special day.  It seems a long time ago now but we had a lovely day. We took her after school to the park as we got her a scooter so she had a go on that.  Admittedly though, she spent more time carrying it then scooting on it.  We then came home and as all the family were around we had a pizza party.

This was the card that her daddy and I gave her.  I used the new Simply Scored tool from Stampin' Up to create the rosettes and in the middle of those I used Antique Brads.  The picture was on that we took of her at christmas where she just looked so natural.  The number and today was from the country companions number collections.

This card was from Chloe, her baby sister and as we are huge fans of Tatty Teddy, I fell in love with this little bear and thought it was just right from her little sister.  The backing paper is from My Minds Eye Totally girl collection and the number and today is from the country companions number collection

For this card, I used the new framelits from Stampin' Upto create the centre section and then stamped the words in Real Red ink from Stampin' Up and the triple treat flower punch.  I also used the Martha Stewart butterfly punch. 

This was a lovely stamp from Lili of the Valley that I coloured in using Promarkers and added an Antique Brad for the centre of the sunflower.  The paper was from the totally girl collection and the granddaughter was from papermania females

This is the last of the cards I made for her birthday, I used the balloons from the Crazy for Cupcakes stamp collection, The decorative label punch to put the sentiment in, and the paper and ink used was Melon Mamba also from Stampin' Up. The one blue balloon used Tempting Turquoise.

Thank you for stopping by and seeing what I am up to.

Tea Shoppe Crazy!!!

Stampin' Up have in their Summer mini catalogue this gorgeous stamp set called Tea Shoppe, and I have fallen totally in love with it. I have made quite a few of these cards as you will see but I have changed the colours for who I have made them for.  All of the cards in the pictures have used the new Designer Series Paper called Attic Boutique which is lush also available in the new Summer mini catalogue. The colours I have used are Poppy Parade and Pool Party and I have used the Lace Border punch and the Modern Label punch. 

 On a few of the cards, I have used either twine or an antique brad, both available in the Stampin' Up ideas book.

Thank you for stopping by to see what has been happening in my little craft room.

Father's Day Cards

It seems like such a long time ago, but this is the 1st chance I have had to get on here. These were a couple of the cards I made for Father's day this year and I was quite pleased with how they turned out.

This card was made for my brother in laws dad who is a lollipop man.  I used the Creative Memories cutting system to get my circles and the Sizzix Broadway Melody for the lettering.

I made this one for my father in law as he loves darts. I found a picture on google so I knew what it looked like and then drew this out on to white card and coloured it in using promarkers for the colours.  I had a lot of fun making this card.

This card I made for my girls for fathers day.  The stamp set is from Stampin' Up and is called up, up and away. The cardstock is also from Stampin' Up and the sentiment was from Lili of the Valley.

This card was made from the Forever Friends For Him paper pack and created my own decoupage to create the 3D effect. 

This card was made for my dad who bless him, when he sits down he has a tendency to fall asleep.  It uses paper from the complete boy collection from My Mind's Eye and the stamps were from Lili of the Valley.

Hope you have enjoyed stopping by.

Teacher Thank you Boxes!!!

Hard to believe that my little Phoebe has finished a year at nursery and starts Reception full time in September. Scary how fast they grow.  As the year has finished, I wanted to make the teachers a little thank you gift as they have been so good. 

I found this tutorial and so I want to point you in the lovely Kirsteen Gill's direction to see her amazing designs and also if you want to have a go at making this then here is the link.  The instructions are so clear that you be making loads and loads.  So far, I have made about 6 but I know that I will be making more and more. I will also be selling them, so if you want some christmas gifts or anything. Please get in contact.

Anyway, here is the picture of the ones I have made for the teachers, I hope you like them. I won't tell you how I made them, so you can go over to Kirsteen to get the tutorial.

I have made these using products from Stampin' Up and filled the boxes with little stationary bits and a few little chocolates.  If you did want to order any then, I can change what goes in them or leave them empty for you to fill with your own choice.

Hope you enjoy looking at them.
