I copied this design from an American Crafts magazine called PaperCrafts Magazine. I used the Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut cartridge and the sentiment was made using my Xyron Design Runner & the XDR PC Link. It was a fun card to make!!

Don't frown when the chips are down

I wanted to make a card for a friend that was feeling a bit down lately so I came up with this card. I used the Locker Talk Cricut cartridge & I also used some Peachy Keen Cornies faces stamps. I added a couple of coloured staples & Card Candi to the design. I liked the card so much that I did not want to give it away, but, my friend really liked the card. PS Chips in the UK are like fries in the USA:-)

Welcome Baby Girl

Here is a card that I made for a new baby. I cut the duck from the Give a Hoot Cricut cartridge & I used a the baby Cuttlebug folder for the background. I also added some Card Candi. I think that the card turned out very nicely, I will be using this design again.

New Digs

This card was made for a friends daughter who had just moved house. She is also a student archaeologist so the card has double meaning. I like that this card is very simple but effective. I used the Cricut Handy Man cartridge and also added a little Card Candi to finish the card off.

1st Birthday

Here is a Pooh Bear card that a friend asked me to make for her nephews fist birthday. I am really chuffed at the result of this card as it is the first time that I have used the Pooh Bear cartridge. I love the colours of this card. I also added a bit of dimension by using the Happy Birthday embossing folder and then added some Card Candi.

MI5 Spy

Here is a card that I have made that is inspired by the Twitter account @pigeonjon. I used the 3 Birds on Parade cartridge and it was such a fun card to make and I am hoping to make a few more Jon Pigeon inspired cards. I hope that you like it!!!

Embossed Sympathy

This is a really simple, but effective sympathy card. I used a Sizzix embossing folder and added a stamped sentiment along with Card Candi and colour matched twine. I entered this card into a competition but I did not win anything, I am really happy with the design of this card though.
