Joannas Cricut card

Birthday Cake Shaped Card

A great excuse to make a card. Last Sunday my daughter needed to go to a 9 year old party, so this is what I made......

I used the Cricut Celebrations cartridge and the Design Software to weld the shape to create my base card. I used some Bazzill purple card for the front of the card layered with white glitter card for the icing. Lots of Kaiser gems used for the sprinkles on the icing!! The paper case was mounted on foam pads using the gorgeous Craft Creations gingham paper. I then cut some flowers out (forgotten which cartridge) and highlighted them with some more Kaiser gems. I then cut out a scallop and computer generated my greeting. Finally I added some ribbon bought last year at the Newbury Stamp Show and highlighted the cake with a white pen...

......hope you like!

Another New in Stock

This time we have Decoupage,

This is no ordinary decoupage this is the new Foliart Pyramide Fairies decoupage.

OOH what a mouthful that is. and I was so tempted to say this M&S Decoupage. LOL!

This decoupage is so dainty and elegant looking. I don't think its going to be around to long.

Chat Soon


P.S. Jet is due down again soon, so Lynn will be performing as Nanny of the decade again soon. She is growing up so fast, Lynn and Grant adore her, can't say I blame them she is a little poppet.

New IN!!!!

Hi Everyone!!

I have just had the e-mail from Lynn to let me know that all the Scrummy Yummy!! Wedding Stationery Supplies are in. So I am frantically adding to the online shop as I type. LOL!!

I have added so much already and there is oodles left to do.

Also she had some Bugs in a rug papers arrive, but Lynn is not letting me know about them as I told everyone about the Tilda Papers and they did not last long. (But I know they are in a little bird told me, and they are so lush! So go get them before they are gone, but leave me some OKAY!!)

AS for the Challenge well that went down like a lead balloon with you guys, so for now it is back to the old way of me posting work I am shown every now and then.

But just to get everyones Juices flowing I Would like to see some projects made for Fathers Day.

Hopefully I will get the girls in the shop to take photos of their creations as they go and pop them on here.

So what else is happening, Workshops all week as shown in the right hand panel.
