Wedding Wedding Wedding

I love making love and wedding themed cards. With this Laura Ashley range it really co-ordinated well with the Morehead decoupage.

First Notebook

This is my first notebook made with the Laura Ashley Love Song range. I used 12x12 papers and fibres. I have another order for another one, the velvet paper seem to be a huge hit.

Neice's Birthday

My neice just turned three. She is a cute little blonde kid. This was just perfect for her.

Special Wedding

I think the materials used on this card are stunning. I work with them a lot for special event cards like this wedding one. This card was a commission for my sister. Her kids gave it to their Uncle and Auntie-To-Be on their big day. It was one of those cards I was sad to see go LOL

Yippeeeeeeeeeeeee - You've Passed

I thought I would try my hand at something just a little different. I used A4 black card to make an A5 card base, fantastic backing paper, die cut using cricut expression, a You've Passed embellsihment and not to mention foam pads that I could simply not cope without. I quite like this one.


Such a horrible cast. He likes getting it off to get in the shower though so he can see what people have written on the back of it LOL He is doing so well, bless him. Although he is starting to get well peeved being so restricted all the time. I hope the Consuntant gives us even better news at our appointment on 11th

Christmas in September

Aren't these Dovecraft Contemporary Christmas papers simply stunning? They are so easily worked with to suit many designs in not just cardmaking. The card is very simple, maybe that's why I like it LOL. If you have any projects using these papers why don't you leave me a link to it in the comment section, thanks for looking

40th Wedding Anniversary

This is the card I made for our friends' anniversary today. They think we have forgotten, yet we have got them a huge bouquet of gladiolus (which is apparently the flower to signify the ruby anniversary) and we have booked a table at a Seafood Restaurant at a local marina :-D

Sexy Busty Silhouette

The little silhouettes turned out great, well pleased with those. I thought I would put slightly larger 'boobs' on the inside to show through to the front to take the bland look away from the front. The inside? Definatley not.. out of bounds!!! (can you see our little puppie just above the 'Happy' isn't he a cutie?)

Friend name-card

For those bloggers that are Trimmies (and 'know' me) you will know that I was struggling to come up with a design for our friend's birthday card. Well I was going to do a sarcastic age related one as it goes so well with the taunting and humour in our friendship but my OH thought we should give him a break from that (for a while) and give him a nice normal card this year. So here it is. That is my first name-card. I can't wait to hear your feedback, good or bad.

Father In Law's 90th Birthday Card

Somehow I have managed to get the A and the D less chunky but it's not that bad is it for a 2nd attempt? I am sure he will not get another one like it which is always good. I can't help but wonder though will I ever get to make another 90th Birthday card for anyone else. I hope I get to make his 100th

Poorly Dad

To get a get well card made for my dad and a thank you card to the staff, I had to grab my pile of get well cards that I received in July... I was able to use two toppers off a card... so a huge thanks goes to flossymonster from the Trimcraft Forum, xx

Fairy Girl Birthday

This is one of my favourite cards, amongst others (lol) The image is cute, the card is simple but effective, I think anyhow. The detail on the fairy is no intricate, especially on the little anklet

Toread Decoupage

I had some bits left over after doing a friend's scrapbook last year. When I got the little Decoupage Fella I put it all together and hey presto.
