It's a girl

Afternoon all
Well it's not a very nice day today so I am in my craft room again.
Hubby gave me permission to buy myself a Gemini machine as my eBosser
wasn't embossing very well so I wanted to try this gorgeous little
die to see how well it would emboss and I am so happy with the result.


My base card is approx 7" x 7" and I have layered it with
white linen card and Pink baby feet 1 card available from
"Limetree craft"


The giraffe die is one from China and you can buy it from
www.aliexpress.com I think it cost me about £1.70, I used
"Gathered twigs Distress ink" before I removed the die
The lace is also available from AE and I got 14yards for £7.50
It's a girl die is from "Sue Wilson Creative Expressions"


I added a bow and flat back gem also from AE.

Thank you for looking in and any comments you are kind enough to
leave as always are greatly appreciated.

Baby keepsake

Afternoon all.

Another lovely day for us here in Leicester, it's warm and the sun has been shining
so what am I doing in my craft room? I ask myself that sometimes
but I just love making all these lovely keepsakes, so here is another one
I made, this time I have made it with the hood up.


I have made this the same as before from the "Arty Farty" template.
I used white hammer card and double sided centura pearl card, the handle is made
from a plastic drinking straw.


I have added peel offs to make it look prettier and the lace is a must.


Added some ribbon, put some netting inside the pram and that's it!

As always thank you for looking in and any comments you are kind enough
to leave are always hugely appreciated.

sharing the card I made for him.

I have layered the card using Blue Centura pearl and white linen card
The train die I have used is from "Marianne design"

center piece of card.
The ribbon has been printed using my new

Twin baby keepsake

Hello everyone
Well I was thinking the other day what can I make then I had a bright idea,
what about a pram keepsake for the expectant mother of twins.
Good idea except it took a while to make it with all the fiddly bits but I think it was
worth it in the end.


I made this using a template from "ArtyFarty Designs"
they are very easy to use and there are written  instructions as
well as step by step pictures.


I decorated the hood with some lace and also the pram
centre apron.


I bought some lovely material from "The Range"
and placed it inside the pram


There are step by step instructions for making the box as well.


I had to finish it off with my favourite Dies
"Poppystamps triple stitched bloom"


Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog and any 
comments you are kind enough to leave are as always greatly appreciated.

Baby Boy Keepsake

Evening all.

After I posted my Baby girl keepsake my friend saw it and asked
me to make one for her niece who is expecting a boy, so here I am sharing it with you.

I used the template from 'Artyfartydesigns' the same as my last post, the only thing
I changed was the card. Instead of using papers I used card from Lime Tree and I also 
made a pillow for this one, I have applied loads of bling to it and added some 
'Poppy stamps Triple stitched blossom trio'



I also made a pillow for this one, I downloaded a template
from Pintrest and added a bit of lace round the edges



Plenty of bling



The cot end pieces look effective with the 
die cuts I have added



Thank you for looking in and all your comments are
always very much appreciated

Quilt - 1 X A5 patterned paper/card

Baby boy frame


Afternoon all.
Sorry not been posting lately but I have been very busy.
I have just finished a photo frame i made for our nephew and his partner.
I got the inspiration for this frame from Janice Oakes who has her own blog
paperpetalsandcardcraft.blogspot.co.uk



I bought a 6 x 6 inch frame from Wilko's and used
White Linen card as my background and cut it using "Sue Wilson's noble pierced squares"
I then layered it with "Nana's nursery " paper
My flowers are cut using "Poppystamps Stitched blossom trio"
I made the baby using a mould i purchesed from eBay and used "Fimo clay"
I then cut a cotton pad for the nappy.
