Birthday Box

Hi All!
Did you manage to watch Leann with the 8x8 Create a Card dies on Hochanda this week? I love these dies and don't know which one I would choose as my favourite!

I used the Happy Birthday die to create this gift box from Centura Pearl card and decorated it with Quilling Flower embellishments. Boxes like these really make your prezzies look expensive!


Hope you like it!
Bye for now xx

Thank You card using Mollie Border Die

Hi All!
I know its been a while but I've been busy behind the scenes and have neglected my little old blog!
So today I thought I'd just pop along and share a card I made with the fab 12 inch Diesire border dies from Crafter's Companion.

This one uses the die called Mollie...and I thought it was perfect for making into a Thank You card... hope you
like it! xx

Beautiful Butterflies

Hi All!
Just thought I'd share another of my makes that you may have seen Fiona Clayton wearing on Hochanda yesterday.
This butterfly brooch uses the new Mixed Media dies from Crafter's Companion to cut through mount board. I then stamped and inked my butterfly, before adding crystal embossing powder!
I even made a matching box...

Hope you like it...I had lots of fun creating it! xx

Mixed Media Gifts

Afternoon All!
Tonight sees the lovely Fiona Clayton on Hochanda with the fabulous Gemini machine. Alongside it she is showcasing the Mixed Media dies which are absolutely brilliant...they cut through so many materials with ease.
Here are just some of the samples I made using the dies through mount board, easily available in craft shops and picture framers...and usually quite tricky to cut through...but not with the Gemini and the Mixed Media dies!




I made some jewellery pendants...stamping and colouring with inks, then enamelling them with embossing powder. I even added them to cards to make them match my gifts.

In other colours too!


Hope you like them xx
