Big Buckle Card

Thought I would have a go at a new technique on splitcoasters and tried a big buckle card. Used the Bloomin' with Beauty from the Spring Mini Catalogue and I think it turned out ok. I am loving my paper piercing tool at the moment and find I am using it on everything.

Hope you like this and I'll put something else out tomorrow (if I have time!).

Hi sorry was going to upload another card but for some reason it is not cooperating - probably is me! Will try tomorrow morning before I go off to sports day for my daughter.

Simply Scrappin' Kits

Thought I would share a card I made from the Winter Bright Simply Scrappin' Kit. I love these kits as they come with so many bits and pieces and are fantastic not just for scrapbooking but make lovely cards as well!

Have used the tree from Lovely As A Tree set and the sentiment is from the Party Punch set which is hostess only - sorry! If you love it you will just have to have a party of your own! Ribbon is Wild Wasabi and Pretty in Pink.
Happy crafting

Made this card for a friends birthday. Thought I would share it with you all.


vanilla cardstock, chocolate chip cardstock, handmade paper, chocolate chip ink, gold brads, chocolate chip taffeta ribbon and some cream with gold edged ribbon from the stash heap.

Stamps: Oh, So Lovely and Basic Phrases

Hope you enjoy this as much as I did making it. Need to get going to bed as back to the daily grind tomorrow!

Happy crafting until next time - email me your creations.

Finally Some Photos!

Have finally done some pictures for you all! Sorry about the photography I'm still getting there. This card was an order for someone for a 40th birthday. Used up some scrap pieces lying around except for the base which was Whisper White. Decided to use the Card sketch challenge SC 195 on Splitcoaststampers for some inspiration. Hope she likes it! Just love those punches and my cuttlebug.

Getting in the Christmas spirit as have realised it is now October and have made no Christmas Cards!!!! This is for SC 194 on Splitcoaststampers. Just love those challenges they inspire me. Used Whisper white and Bordering Blue cardstock with some left over DP from last christmas for this one. Mellow moss and Purely Pomegranate ink and the lovely Solemn Stillness stamps which I need to get out more often as love the look of these. Basic Phrases for the message. Enjoy!

Honestly don't know a thing about all this blogging but will try and learn along the way. Any comments are welcome but please be nice - remember I'm learning. Will try and add some lovely pictures of recent crafting so you can enjoy them. Please come again!
