This weekends creations!

This weekend I made some double slide cards.  These are my favourite thing at the moment.  They are super easy to make once you watch this tutorial over at Dawn's Studio.  You wouldn't believe it, but the sliding mechanism works on a piece of grocery bag. I love how you get two surprises when you pull the top tab out.  Definately one for an up and coming class!

I also got to play with my new favourite toy, my embossing gun.  I embossed the bird cage and vine using clear embossing powder and versa marker. For the flowers I used my stampin write markers to match all the Soft Subtles paper.

Baby Shower Gift

Today I'm off to a baby shower.  I thought about making lots of different things for little baby girl Frampton but ended up making this piece of wall art for her nursery.  This idea comes from 2 crafty ladies, Yvonne Campbell and Kari Hughes

When Baby Girl Frampton is born and named I'll add her name to the frame.  I've also left the bottom right square plain for the little one's details.  This to will be added when I get my baby girl cuddles in a couple of weeks.

Materials: (Mostly Stampin Up)
Paper - Pretty in Pink, Rose Red and Raspberry Tart DSP
Stamps - Great Friend
Ink -  Close to Cocoa and Versa Mark (with Clear Embossing Powder)
Flowers - Flower Fusion and Flower Fusion Too

Bling - Filigree Designer Brads
Buttons  - Amy Butler (butterfly) and various with Linen Thread
Extras - Stick-on Pearls
Frame - Lincraft Scrapbooking Frame. (It was timber so I spray painted it white)

Get Well Soon!

It's never a nice thing having to make Get Well Soon cards.  This was a quick card whipped up for my husband to take to squash for an unwell team member.

It's a rather basic card but I think it does the job.

A night of Girls, Giggles and Glue!

Our first class was such a great night! We ended up with 16 crafty ladies who made our Mother's Day Gift Box, Easel Card and Note Card Set.  With the buzz of the evening, I only remembered to take a couple of pics towards the end of our night. Here you'll see my partner in craft, Helen with some of the ladies and their end products.

Thanks to everyone who came along! Our next class will be on the 2nd June. Watch this space for details!!!
