Platinum Jubilee ...

You may have seen my feature in Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine issue 230 which went on sale last month which was showcasing milestone wedding anniversaries.  Well I couldn't resist making our lovely Queen a Jubilee celebration card in Royal colours of course.  There are many 3D embossing folders on the market, this one by Altenew titled Rose Bouquet, simply stunning and just rubbing a white ink pad over the top of the embossing, especially on darker cards looks amazing, don't you think :)  So I have used a DL card and cardstock from Papermania.  The numbers are from The Greetery and the sentiment is from Studio Light; Phrases 2.

Received a reply too ...

Have a great Jubilee weekend
Love Jane x

Bingo ...


I am guest designer over at Simply Magnolia for the month of June, you will now find us over on Facebook if you want to play along.  The challenge this month is 'Bingo' and what is better than bingo but crafty bingo, eyes down.

FULL HOUSE, yippee.

So I have made a wallet box, cut on my Silhouette.  Tilda/band slides off the top and there are seven wallets to fill with goodies, maybe a hot drink sachet or even a face mask or too. Great for a sleep over gift either way.

A couple of views from the sides and with the band off.

On the inside front flap  I have stamped this lovely sentiment.

So this lovely Tilda is called Pillow Tilda, perfect image for a sleepover treat box.  Papers, Doohickey dies (cloud/stars/speech bubble/hearts/flowers/leaves & lace)  pink/white organza, coloured with Promarkers, 19 paper panels hand stitched, three clear dew drops & gems.  The 'sending love' sentiment is from Simply Cards & Papercraft issue 226, 'hello sunshine' from Spellbinders & inspirational quote inside was a Magnolia Club box.

Do come and play along with us on Facebook

Count your rainbows ...


Once again I am the Guest Designer over at Simply Magnolia and this months challenge is 'Birthdays' using the gorgeous Tilda or lets not forget Edwin.

I have been wanting to make a lollipop card for a while and thought it would be perfect for this new edition to my collection; Unicorn Pyjama Tilda.  So I have used a variety of Sizzix Surfacez cardstock, Rosette file, coloured with Promarkers, flowers, cheesecloth, clear dew drops, ribbon & bells from my stash.  The sentiment in the Sizzix shaker reads; count your rainbows not your thunderstorms with some beads. Star, sun, clouds & heart are all Doohickey dies from various club boxes. Finally gold foiled sentiment from Spellbinders.

Please do come and play along with us HERE

4" Notelets ...

CAS today, some 4" square notelets, to be honest I was just playing about with some card scraps and this stunning folder from Altenew.  Spellbinders hot foil sentiments from my stash, when I get my hot foiling out I tend to make a few to grab for such an occasion.  So this little lot took I would say less than and hour, all boxed up and a great little gift too.

Had this Silhouette file for a while and was asked for a music card so thought I would give it a go, two colour options so they had a choice. Along with the acetate spiral that I hadn't done for a long while but came across on my blog the other day and thought it would add that little extra finish.  Finished card folds flat and fit in a C5 envelope.

Eighty ...

Today I am sharing a special eightieth birthday card which I have made a a lovely lady celebrating today.  So the 3d mason jar is a cutting file over on the Silhouette Design Store by the lovely Lori Whitlock.  I haven't used the flowers in the file but the gorgeous Sizzix Wildflower Stems, cut on smooth white cardstock and individually coloured using Promarkers.  Took sometime to colour but I love the effect.  I have slightly aged the cardstock with Gesso and the heart is also from Sizzix, which I just love.  So the lovely recipient didn't want to be made a fuss of, so I have discreetly put the BIG 80 on the reverse of the tag so she can leave it on the window sill without anyone thinking anything other than a nice jar of flowers.  So I made a box to suit and also some 80 confetti too.
