Lorra Laura

The card was made using the 2sketches4you sketch, along with new butterfly stamp and new laura ashley papers (thanks ruth!). Also while buying in some bargains at the charity shop I sotted this lovely teddy in the window for only 50p- and yes it is Laura Ashley too! The card and teddy are going seperate ways, but thought they made a nice photo :)

Magnetic Attraction

I saw this magnet on holiday, and thought it would be perefect for my friend who lives down the road! To glam it up a bt I mounted it on to card with pieces of magnetic strip which I cut down, so that the magnet can be removed from the card if so desired (gone and deleted the pic to show you).

Puffy Penguins

I love these little stickers, I picked them up last year in the Accesorize sale! I thought they would be great for kids cards and the like, here I have used it for an alternative anniversary card. Love the fact that they look so sweet, noneed for any glitz or glam! The couple really loved it (thankfully!)

Love Lugg

If you havent heard of Sarah Lugg, then go and check out her work! (sorry cant be bothered to find link at this late hour...) After a quick visit to my sister, and raiding her craft stash I came home with new bits to play with (how very exciting!) really helps to rejuvinate the ole mojo! Any how.... Ruth was thinking of selling this stamp, and so I thought I would 'borrow' it first to see if it was any good. I had troubles at first as I tried to add buttons etc, but wasnt looking right, then decided to go for a decoupage effect, which looked better, but not quite there... So went on to add bits and bobs- and there you have it! I hope that you can see the layered results, was very pleased, and sad to part with this project but was made for some friends who got married while we were on holiday. Congrats Alexis & Sharo!

In the Frame

Back from a wonderfully, relaxing and fun holiday. A much needed break! Got lots of blog catching up to do. Thought I would start with some commissions that I did for some frames.

A friend's husband wanted this verse in a frame, and so I took the task on! He liked creation, and blues and greens. The way it happened almost came about by accident, I started putting touchesof green on the frame and as Ismudged it in some blue paint from the cloth went on the frame- I thought at first it would be a disaster, but added real effect! I added real fern leaves; to look like trees, and stamped swirls for the finishing touch.

These other frames were for the husbands wife. She wanted 2 frames with the same verse, so I decided to go with different colour schemes. Was pleased with the outcomes and made duplicates so I have spare frames to sell.
