Will you be my page boy?

One of my friends recently got engaged! She asked me to make her a card to ask her nephew to be her page boy. She wanted to make the moment special and it was important that the card was tractor themed.I had to do a search on Pinterest for ideas, I have never been asked to make a tractor themed card before. After some browsing I decided that the best way to make a card was using my Silhouette Portrait to cut a design. I found this tractor in the Silhouette shop. The cut out consists of a few layers but the finished design looks fab.

Wedding keepsakes

A few weeks ago I was asked to make two wedding keepsakes. These box photo frames have the bride and grooms names along with their wedding date. The frames are from ikea and I customised them using bits and bods in my craft room. I am determined to start using what I have! But it is easier said than done!

Weddings,weddings,weddings

I am just currently finishing off some wedding invitations, which I will show you all when the bride and groom’s big day arrives. I love the buzz and excitement of weddings and all the planning. I wish I could do it all again! The card I am showing off today was a personalised request, the bride and groom paper cut out is from the Silhouette design store. It is one of my favourite designs in my library.  Hope you are having a wonderful day filled with loads of crafting.

Wedding box card.

This is the latest box card that I have created, and it is my favourite so far! The stamps I used to create the hearts is from Stampin Up. The bride and groom paper cut out has be purchased from the Silhouette store. I cut the image out twice, on white card then on black card. I then layered them together to give the final effect. The Stampin Up stamp set I have used is:

Happy Wedding Day!

Wedding season has kicked into full swing. I was asked to create a special card which had the bride and groom’s name along with the date of their wedding day. I made this tri fold card, the background paper is made by Hunkydory and the image of the bride and groom is from the Silhouette store. To make it a little more special I added pearls and a few coloured diamonds.

Craft fairs and weddings!

Hello everyone! Its been a while since I have updated you with what i’ve been up to. I have been busy with custom card orders (mainly holy communion cards and new baby cards), wedding invites and a craft fair in-between! I have only ever sold my items at one fair before its a great buzz to know that people actually want to buy something that you have made! Since this fair I am getting ‘proper’ display units made. I love to look around and see how other crafters set up their stalls, i’ve started a Pinterest board so feel free to follow it if you like.
