Urm, i think im in the right place!

Afternoon, I'm sorry its been so long, I'm not going to make excuses or anything lets get down to the crafty stuff ;). Now i promised a Easter box but i changed it to a little baby boy bucket! its so cute and turned out better than what i thought! Here it is:
Now i don't think this picture does it any Justice at all and i cant wait for one of my mates to have a baby boy or girl, as I'll be making a girl one soon. Also i was up town one day and found in T.K Max loads of Making Memories stuff for just £4 a kit! So if you have a chance pop down to your local and see what you can pick up! I'll be putting my Stampin' Up! stuff to one side and be working with them for a little bit ;).
Have a good day people!

Easter Gift

Hi all,
Now i thought this post had been posted and it hadn't; stupid phone.
Today i have what I'm giving and selling as Easter gifts, its a simple little treat that is just so cute. All you need is a test tube and some sweets. now i used millions because i thought it looked better however i did try mini eggs before and that looked good still.
They were really simple to decorate as well because you want to keep it simple when it i only going to be eaten. Therefore all i did was stamp a little bunny from So Cute stamp set from Stampin' Up! which Carol let me borrow to do these. Simple then use ribbon in a note to finish it off.

I'm currently sorting out my craft area as it looks a mess and needs a good sort out, and i couldn't sleep last night so i started painting the walls. I will post pictures soon, its now the holiday's so i have some time to get things done as well as craft; Yay!
Have a nice a with the sun, Cya x

Here it is

Here's the card i was on about yesterday, inspired from the card yesterday i made this card using a new Hero Arts stamp set i brought. You can instantly notice the similarities between this card and the last one, i used my 3 favourite colours from stampin up; Marina Mist, Crumb Cake & Chocolate Chip!
Well here's the card:
Nothing great but hopefully tomorrow i will have an Easter basket and the the Easter treats i made for everyone.
Anyway have a nice day! Cya x

Idea's from friends

Today's card is one which Carol & Jan brought over with them for me and Carol to make; what a lovely idea. Now they had done all the stamping because they couldn't bring all the stamps with them. This wasn't the layout from the original card, however i didn't want to copy there cards so i made little changes like the bow and the edge along the bottom. Here's what the card turned out like:
Now i can't name the stamp sets used as i think two of them aren't in the British catalogue, i do have to admit i like them though... so if they ever come to Britain they will be first on my list ;)
this card also inspired me to use a new Hero arts stamp set i brought the weekend and i need to take a picture of it still; luckily it was given to my nan for mothers day so i can still take a picture of it. That card may be tomorrows or Thursdays card, depends on what time i have tomorrow.
Anyhow have a nice even; Cya x

So this is the plan

Basically i need to update my blog more! And there are reasons as to why it takes me time but there shouldn't be an excuse, so basically i have like 5 cards made and all photoed and therefore will right all the blogs out but wont post them. You'll have to wait!
As it is mother day i have been making a fair few cards, now i set myself a challenge; use more colour! you may have noticed i like my Crumb Cake card stock, a lot. I toned it down for this card though using So Saffron, Pretty in Pink and Chocolate Chip.
I used the Chocolate Chip as a card base and to mat and out line the layers. Next i used a small Pretty in Pink, the reason why i didn't use much of these colour is because they are very strong independent colours which work on their own, in comparison to the So Saffron which is subtle and makes a perfect background. That kind if sounded like a part of an essay, sorry!
Another change for me was that i lightly decorated the inside of the card, which isn't something i do often . Now that's all for this card, I'll be back soon promise!

Have a nice Mothers Day all :D x
