40th Birthay


My son needed a card for one of his mums friends who was trying to forget she was turning forty
We decided on the subtle approach!
I used my De-sire dies to cut the card bases six in total
Then I used my Brother Scan n Cut to cut the letters out for the forty 
and also to create a shadow behind them.
The image is from Kenny k's and is coloured using my promarkers

She did find it funny 

This card is for the following challenges

Promarker Storage Update

As some of you know I tend to be a little bit of an OCD crafter - I like everything to have a place and when I have finished using it that is where it goes.
Now when I first started collecting Promarkers I used a travel CD case to transport them and it has worked really well you can see the original HERE. I then also started to collect some flexi markers and the promarkers brought out some limited edition promarkers so I decided I needed them!
       This meant my storage box was no longer large enough so I started to look at ways to improve it


I brought a slightly larger box from E-Bay then set to improving the insides I realised if I made some boxes for the pens I could store more in a row, than using the CD sleeves. So using an A4 piece of paper I scored out a box with two dividers so the pens do not fall over (I did warn you I was OCD) 
This is the A4 piece of card with the score lines dotted and the solid lines are the cut lines.
This way there is very little waste - just the sma…

No Cards But A Promarker Storage Project!

Sorry not a card but I have been working on this, hopefully some cards soon. Anyone who know me knows I am a very organised crafter My promarkers have been driving me mad as they were in a number of different containers and I never seem to pick up the right container, so I decided I needed to sort it This is a CD storage box from Tescos it comes with 100 sleeves to put CD in
You can find it HERE but there are many others out there Being sad I had some Pro markers in my handbag so was able to try them in the shop for size! Each sleeve holds seven promakers and each section comfortable hold 10 sleeves or eleven with a little bit of a squeeze As I said I like things very organised or as my DH says OCD! I used some adhesive labels in my Craft Robo and cut out the little circles this way they were still attached to the backing sheet I could colour them and then peel them off with my poky tool and stick to the ends of the pens I also have put a coloured circle on the bar of each sleeve (which slides…
