Happy Accidents

I have the really bad habit of putting things on top of my guillotine to get them out of my way, then when I go to cut something I accidentally cut the wrong things. Yesterday, I accidently snipped a corner off a piece of DSP and was determined not to waste it, so I tried it on this card. I couldn't have been more pleased with the result. I'm afraid I'm not so lucky with my photography as this is a really bad picture. I'll try again and put a better picture up if I can.

What a busy girl I've been

I have been busy in the craft room recently. I bought a load of new goodies at various craft shows recently, and am just getting around to trying them all out. This card is one of my favourites. Notice I managed to use a stamp from one of my free Sale-A-Bration sets as well.  The Outlined Occasions set is really great and I think I will use it a lot. Can't believe it was free!

More French Foliage

French Foliage is a stamp set I keep coming back to. I just love it. Here is a card I made yesterday. The sentiment is a stamp I found in my stash. The card layout was inspired by a card I saw on another blog. Sorry I can't remember which blog.

Sale-A-Bration Ending

I don't believe it,  Sale-A-Bration only has a couple of days left! Get your orders in quick - by 31st March - and get those free gifts. For every £45.00 spent you can choose a gift from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. Or join my team and in addition to the normal starter kit, which is already tremendous value, you can choose any stamp set from the current catalogue.

Friendly Words

Hi Everyone

I've only recently started to appreciate how good Stampin Around Wheels are. I bought the Friendly Words and the Very Vintage Jumbo Wheels and I love them both. This card uses the Friendly Words wheel  and also a stamp from the My Friend stamp set, which is in the Spring Mini.

Daisies and Leaves

I had a lazy Sunday, and spent the morning in the craft room. I should have been out doing some gardening as the weather was so nice, but instead I've made a garden themed card. I'm really loving my Big Shot at the moment, and particularly the Daisies #2 die and the Sizzlits Little Leaves. I seem to be using them on everything .  On this card I also used one of my favourite stamp sets French Foliage in the background.

Old Favourites

A stamp set that I go back to again and again is Pocket Silhouettes. I find this to be one of the most useful stamp sets ever.

White on White

I never would have thought of matting white onto white, but I recently saw this done on Create and Craft TV, and thought it looked really good. This is my effort, using the Square Lattice embossing folder, the Daisies #2 die, and also Little Leaves Sizzlit die. The sentiment is from the Marry Me stamp set which is in the Spring Mini catalogue.
