Flowers with Jane at CUL

Well!!!!!! What a day was Thursday! How lucky was I? I was absolutely bowled over by the rose class with Jane Gill at CUL - so bowled over I stayed for the afternoon class too!!! As crafters we all have the "must have NOW" feeling, but I had the "must do lots more/Wow" feeling.

We made these roses using 80gsm pink paper, a dark pink ink pad, PVA glue - it's really difficult to tell you anymore - you have to go on a class! I'll certainly be asking Paula at CUL to invite Jane to do more classes - can't wait!

Thank you Jane x

Vikki will go to the ball...

I was asked to make this card - these shoe cards are so lovely, very feminine and I just love putting all the blingy bits on! I used the cuttlebug Swirls embossing folder. The font for "Vikki" is a Quickutz (sorry can't remember the name). The oval shapes are SU punches. The flowers and bling are from CUL. The swirl on the box is also Quickutz. The pink card is Bazzil Bling pink something-or-other!

Thank you

End of term seems so long ago now and I'm soooo enjoying my wonderful 6 week holiday. Crafting juices have been flowing but I've been so busy doing other things I've just not had the time to release them! Anyway, hope you like this card - left it to the last minute before making it - of course....

The scalloped card idea came from a Jane Gill class I went on last year. However, once the circle is chopped in 'half' I was at a loss as to what to do with the smaller 'half' so played around and quite liked this idea. The edges were decorated with various sets of Tapestry Stamps.

Something to share...

I've just returned from my holiday - Lake Guarda, Italy. Surely, this just has to be one of the most beautiful places in the World? So sorry, my 'post' isn't about crafting but just a picture to share with my Bloggie friends xx
