New Baby cards

I can't believe that it has been so long since I last posted on here. My crafting mojo has been on holiday, that's my excuse!!

I am now a proud Great Auntie (or as I am now named Granty!) to Jamie Stephen, and have been busy making cards for my niece, my sister, and my mum (and their other halves as well!). I made 3 cards, all virtually the same, and boxes to put them so that they are more of a keepsake than a card.

The patterned papers and elements are all from Raspberry Roads "My Baby Love" collection and have been printed onto white pearl card. Most of the stickers are Forever Friends "Hugs and Cuddles" from docrafts. All the letters and the teddy bear were cut using the Cricut, and the ribbon and vellum were from my stash. They took me quite a while to make, but they were well worth it for the reaction that I got this morning!

Hope that you like them, Em xx

Women ATC's

These are the ATC's that I have made for a swap over on the craftnomads forum. The theme was "Women". I got the images from and printed them out onto craft paper for the background and also onto plain vellum for the main image. The flowers are Flora Doodles mini florettes and the ribbon and brads are from my stash. The picture isn't brilliant as I have scanned the images.

Love n' hugs, Em xx

Fathers Day...part 2!

Made my Dad's card and forgot about one for Shaun's Dad, till he came back from cycling, asked me what crafting I had been doing, then asked me to make a card for his Dad!! Just a quick one so nothing special, but he'll like it.

Hugs, Em x

Me and my Dad

This is the card that I have made my Dad for Fathers Day. I found the picture when I was doing a recent circle journal on childhood memories and thought it would be perfect for Fathers Day.

The Dog House!!!

This is a card that I made for my father-in-law for his birthday. I have always made him nautical type cards in the past as he was a seaman (of some description!) but wanted something different this year, and he likes dogs so that's what I did. Mummy-in-law asked me did I think that he was always in the doghouse!!!

Hugs, Em x

Circle Journal - Where I live


Finished my pages in a CJ on the Craftnomads forum earlier this week. It was all about the place where you live, and these are the 2 pages which I created for my hometown of Ormskirk. Okay, just 1 page...I was obviously having a really stupid moment and didn't save the scan of the other page!!!!
Hugs, Em x
