Pretty in Blue

I have been having another play with my Crafter's Companion Honeycombe Favour Box Dies.  I cut this one from pale blue Centura Pearl, I cut the decorative panels from alternate sides of the box so that you can see what is on the inside.  I just added some die cut flowers, also from the Favour Box Die collection and some ribbon from my stash.

Play Me

This is the card that I created for my Husband for his Birthday, he quite likes to listen to his vinyl, his record player is a bit more modern than this though.


I used another download from CraftsUprint, I added a few extra layers and changed the sentiment - there are also a few layers of decoupage.

A Minor Mishap

Ramsey had a minor mishap on his walk recently, we are not quite sure what happened but when Paul went to put him back in the car he noticed a large cut on his front leg. After a quick trip to the vet and lots of staples he is on the mend. He has been really good and not touched it at all so thankfully no need for the cone of shame.


Thank you for popping in today, I will be back tomorrow with a card.

Fashion Essentials

It is my Niece's Birthday next week and this is the card that I created for her.  I have used a kit from craftsUprint called Fashion Essentials.


I printed some extra copies so that I could add a few extra layers of card stock between the background layers, there are also lots of decoupage layers so lots of fussy cutting - I haven't done much fussy cutting lately and I had forgotten how relaxing I find it.


I added a Joanna Sheen die cut sentiment along with a computer generated one, I also applied some Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the pearls and decorated the inside with the insert from the kit and some extra card stock.
