Candle and Flowers




Today I went to the shops and got a candle so I could stamp it.
Not done it before so was wanting to try it out .
I really enjoyed doing that. I didnt realize how easy it was to do. And It turned out nice :)



So I was wondering around the store and I came across some silk flowers for 50p a bunch and bought some. I took the flowers apart so I could use them on my cards :) They are so pretty. Just thought I would share with you.

Thanks for looking :)

Easter Card & Mother's Day Card



Good Morning to you all :)
This week has gone by soo fast!!

I have started making Easter Cards. And this is my 1st one .

I used some new items as well as old.

My mom sent me a box of "Scrapbook in a Box". The papers in it are really pretty. She found it in a thrift store. The papers had dates on them...but she said to me "Just cut the dates off" lol and use them"......so I did :)
There is a few Easter pages in the box. So I am going to try and incorporate them into my cards. So many papers in it for holidays and other seasonal things as well as birthdays . So its awesome I get to recycle them into something new :)

Items used:
DCWV paper
White,blue, and green cardstock
Gems from stash
Ribbon from DCWV
Sentiment from Papermania
Little pictures recycled from Scrapbook in a Box

Mother's Day Card :

I made this card useing a picture from Scrapbook in a Box .
I thought it was delicate , so I didnt want a heavy looking card.
So this card is very simple and pretty .

Items used :
White, pale green, and cream cardstock
Pictureand gingham border from Scrapbook in a Box
Gems from stash
Sizzix Texture plate

Also Paper peiceing is not one of my strong areas..trying to match colours of papers and get the layout right , it is a bit difficult for me....where as other stuff is easier...So I have been doing more of it the last few days.

So I was sat playing about wth stuff last night .
And this is the end result , let me know what you think !!


Items used:

Red,white and blue cardstock
