Ooh I am getting into changing my style of photos. I am loving the apps that you can get to enhance the look of your work, yes I used enhance not change! As at the end of the day you still had to make the original... Will post a before and after picture of a photo I have been playing with.

Spent the day pricing and cataloging my stock for my impending Craft Sale! Each year I like to make up a DIY kit (aimed at the children). This year is a Snowman. The previous years have been a Christmas tree and Gingerbread man. A great way to introduce kids to simple crafts.

Sometimes with commissions I am dictacted to as to what colour the client would like, which is fine. Other times it is nive to have the freedom for creative play, here was one of those occasions. As I knew the couple I tried to make it using colours I thought they would like. This is an A5 card using the Sizzix dove die, and Martha Stewart scallop punch

It's My Mum's birthday today. We still call her Mummy despite being 'grown up'. I loved the colours of these new Dovecraft papers, which I teamed with the Stampin Up! Canary set using the jar to fill with buttons. I created a patchwork effect with the papers and finished it off with some ric rac. My Mum is multi skilled and talented and one of those things is sewing, hence the threads etc.

Don't you just love it when you find a technique that is quick and simple? Masking and stamping has been around for a while, but sometimes you can 'rediscover' techniques which may be different from what you normally do. Masking and stamping has been made easier by using the post-it note. You mask (cover up) an area and stamp on top and over the post-it note to create a space on your project. I used the technique for a masculine thank you card and a girly pink birthday card.
