Baby girl keepsake

Afternoon all.

Well I thought I would try my hand at making a little cot keepsake, it would make
a lovely gift for any new mum.

To make this I bought a template from "Arty Farty Designs" and was surprised at
how easy it was to make! You get written instructions as well as step by step photo's. The template
pattern is for "Cherub 2 cot & box"



To make it you need the following
Cot panels - 2 X A4 card
Strips - 4mm craft straws or 18 strips of card 5mm wide, I chose the card option
Mattress - 1 X A5 patterned paper
Inside/Outside panels - 1 X A4 patterned paper/card
Quilt - 1 X A5 patterned paper/card
Box - 3 X A4 and 1 X A5 card
Box Acetate - 1 X A4
Embellishments, Ribbon and Tags



I made mine using white double sided Centura pearl card and papers
from First Edition "Its a girl"

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.

Baby boy Exploding box


Hi Everybody

Just been sitting here deciding what to do so I thought I would do an exploding box



The box is 4" x 4" and I have used Centura pearl card and white
linen card. I made the calendar and base for a baby scan on my computer.
The images are from "Pintrest" and I made the blocks which are 1" square
and added the numbers from a free die set I got in a magazine a few
months ago. The papers are Tatty Teddy and flowers and pearls inside the box
 are from "Wild Orchid crafts". On the lid I used "Sue Wilson's Pierced Flags"
and "Poppystamps Stitched Bloom trio". On the outside of the box I used
"Spellbinders Elegant Ovals" dies and "Sue Wilson's It's a boy" die, I won't bore you with 
what is on the other 3 sides!


I hope you like it and any comments you are kind enough to leave are always appreciated

It will be an honour and privilage to share with Poppystamps

Gift Box

                                                                 Evening all.
I spent most of today making this gift box and I hope you like it




I made this using "Spellbinders Detailed Scallops" the biggest one
is 4 5/8 x 6 5/8, I made a box and attached it to one of the largest pieces,
I then decorated the box inside and out using "The Promise" papers and on the edges
I put peel off border and corners
I then made a lid and stuck it to the other biggest Detailed Scallops die cut.
I put lace around the outside of the lid to pretty it up
 I used foam tape to layer the other two die cuts and outlines them all with pearls
I printed an image from "Pintrest" to layer the top die and topped 
it all off with some ribbon and "Poppystamps Stitched Bloom Trio" with some
light green pearls added



Thank you for stopping by and for any comments you are kind enough to leave

Book card

Well here we are in a wet and windy Leicester 

Today I wanted to share a new project from me, this is the first attempt at
making one and it hasn't turned out too bad.


I watched a video tutorial on You Tube explaining how to make this and just
added bits as I went along. This is the front of the card and I love
anything Disney so I just had to have Dopey on the front


Here you can see the inside of the card, it can also be used to store
little keepsakes 


This is the side of the card which is fastened by the ribbon
Hope you like it
