Anniversary Book

This is a project I did for my other half. Instead of doing a normal card I was inspired by Dans work off the craft swap forum.

Here's just a few pages of the book.

Egyptian Pages

Here's the start of my Egyptian Pages.

I've been burning the edges of the images to make them a bit older. I don't think everyone was happy with the smell as I was doing this and the ash got everywhere - Note to self do it outside next time.

Christmas Fat Book Pages

Well I've been a busy bee this weekend as I've signed up to 2 more swaps on the Craft Swap Forum.

Here are a couple of my first efforts of the Rubber Stamped Christmas Variety :)
I love this snowman so much he is sooooo cute. I used Nick Bantocks Inks then i bleached out his bobble abd the furry trim.

Again using the same Nick Bantock Inks with a little sparkle and layered and held in place with a star brad.

Christmas Tag Book

Ok so I am in full flow for christmas and I made this for a competition on TJC Designs Forum. I really like it just because it's something diffrent for me to get my teeth into :)

New Spring Card

Heres a spring card I made a few weeks ago. I like Black and White but I think it really works well with this Christmas Card.

Spring Card

I thought I would give this a go because it looked interesting. I really like to try something diffrent and this is a nice way of doing a kind of pope up card without going banannas on the cutting.

Craft Swap Forum Birthday Challenge

Well its nearly a year since the Craft Swap Forum was set up and some of us are taking part in the Birthday Celebrations by doing things to help the forum raise money for charity. I am part of team 7. The theme is autumn and we are making pages for a fat book. I've never tried this before so here are my first attempts at the back and front.

Framed Flowers

All these cards are using Matties Embossing Stencils. They really are so beautiful and just give a lovely frame to work with.

Created January 2007


This follows on from the Rose card I made a couple of days ago. It looks really dark in the picture but its not actually that dark.

Perfect Peony

This is a decoupage I have finally got round to cutting out. The backing paper is called Heirloom Harlequin by Dena Designs.

Created 23 February 2007


I found this colour a little difficult to match but I think this really worked well and the mix of gold and copper peel offs helped too.
