Shaker card using Nesting Dies

Morning Bloggers,

Happy Monday to you all, how was your weekend?
Thank you for all the comments on my last post and for the anniversary wishes.

Today I'm sharing one of the samples I made recently for Hunkydory using the new Moonstone Scalloped and straight square nesting dies. These are essential for any crafter I think and because you have both the straight and scalloped dies in the same pack value for money too :-)


I also used my Favourite bunting die too that I use on lots of my creations just because it works well for all occasions really and finished off any design..

I used topper image from the new little book of Milestone Birthdays, Sentiment from the Little Book of Essential 2018 sentiments, Adorable scorable from the Essential Limited Edition colourways pack.


Thanks for stopping by my blog and for any comments you leave

I used the super cute ted with roses image coloured with copics. The backing papers are from a pad I picked up years ago at either the range or the works (unsure now lol)
Teamed with some Silver Centura Pearl cardstock and some silver ribbons from my stash..

I love blue roses and many years ago while hubby and myself were out having dinner he brought me one as I man was selling in the restaurant/bar we were in, so thought this would be ideal image to use and with our colour theme this challenge being blue too lol

Birthday Fun

Morning Everyone,

Hope you are all ok, its a little frosty here this morning.

Anyway I still have dozens and dozens of cards still waiting to be blogged, so today I will share two that Ive made using the 12x12 Birthday Scrapbook pad from Crafter's Companion

Both of these creations were orders that my customers ask for.

This first one, I was asked by my customer to use her grandson photograph and add his name and age.. I used lots of elements from the scrapbook pad for this card. I also added grandson to the little tag on the present topper but did this after taking the photograph..

For this next one I was asked to make a pop up box card for an 80th Birthday. Again I used all elements from the scrapbook pad.

Shaped Easel

Hello Crafty Friends,

Hope you are all well??

I'm back today to share a card I made using the NEW Little Book from Hunkydory called Milestone Birthdays. I also used their NEW nesting dies to create this little shaped easel card.

I cut the little book topper out and used some of it for the top panel and then the rest for the bottom panel.. The beautiful pink/white card is from the Adorable Scorable Limited Edition Essential colour ways from Hunkydory (love it)


Thanks for stopping by and for any comments you leave.
I'm hoping to catch up with all your blogs over the next day or two

Morning bloggers,

Just a quick post from me today. I've only managed a few hours sleep last night and think I've finally caught the hubby's nasty bug :-( so I will be on a go slow today, waiting in for parcels to be collected and delivered.

Today's card is another one I made for an order. My customer's husband loves Hedgehogs and Poppies so this was the perfect image to use. Coloured with my copics.

Papers are from a cheap 12x12 pad I think I picked up from the range/the works a while ago. Teamed with red and black cardstock.
Ribbon and twine from my stash, sentiment I printed from the computer.

On your Engagement

Morning everyone,

Happy Monday to you all.. Hope your weekend was a good one, We had a chilled out one at home, only nipped out to walk Poppy. The hubby has man flu STILL and now my eldest has it too :-(

I had a good few hours colouring over the weekend that I really enjoyed, hoping to keep my pens out now the Christmas orders are finished so I can keep practising with those Copics ready for the classes with Faye in Feb.

For todays card share I have a couple of Engagement cards I made using the Memories and Milestone collection from Hunkydory

I love the pale pink and black colour combo on these sheets/toppers.
