Wedding Poem



This was made a very special gift for some good friends who got married in December
The cutting file is a free file from Paper Pulse that I cut using my Scan N Cut
I also cut a mat out of gold metallic card to put behind the heart
I made the card into a gate fold card and inside was a poem my sister had written for the couple
The ribbon came on the wedding invites and as it had the date and the couples names on it I thought it made a good addition to the card
I also made the envelope as it was 8 by 8 card
Again  I used a piece of the ribbon to but on the label for the front
My sister read the poem out just before they took their vows
it was a wonderful day and now they are back from their honeymoon I thought it was save to share

You're Invited


This card was made as an voucher from my sisters MIL and FIL
I used a cutting file from Birds Cards and as always it cuts beautifully
I converted the file using ScanNCut Canvas and then cut it on my Scan N Cut
Inside it invites them to my sisters flat in Suffolk for a weekend with the family and a meal out
I added a little bit of red just to lift the words

Simple Birthday


This card uses some patterened paper from my snippet drawer 
I used my a built in image on my Brother Scan N Cut to cut the butterfly three times and a mat for the back of each butterfly from plain black card stock.
I also used the Scan N Cut to cut the square mats in black and white
The paper is black, white and gold and I have used metallic liquid pearls to add the bodies and antenna to the butterflies. I used a black promarker pen to add the doodle behind the flying butterfly.

2015 Calender


Each year I make a calender to go on my desk at work
This year I used the Craft Artist Professional with a digi kit to produce the actual calender
Then I printed a great Bugaboo image of Stella and a sentiment out
I used my Brother Scan N Cut to cut the image out with a small border
The coloured the image with my promarkers
I love this sentiment for work to start each day

This calender is for the following challenges

Fishing Vouchers


This card was cut using a free file from SVG cuts 
The fishing accessories where images from google cut on my Scan N Cut
Inside I made three pockets to hold three voucher cards
My nephew was away at Christmas visiting his Dad in Ireland so we needed
easy to pack pressies, this one was so he could buy some fishing equipment he wanted.
I was not sure how to make the vouchers fun so it was a bit of last minute rush before he went away!
