Foil Frenzy Gift Box

Hello there and welcome to my blog today. Today I'm sharing a box that I CASED from page 76 of the new catalogue but I came up with the measurements and design all by myself! Yep I am quite proud of that one!
The Happy Birthday thinlit die that I have used on this make has been a popular choice with my customers and it coordinates with the Happy Birthday Gorgeous to create a fab bundle, see pages 76 and 77 of the catalogue. 
You may not be able to see but I actually cut out the Happy Birthday 3 times and layered it on top of each other to create a thicker effect. 
I love the Foil Frenzy papers, but you can't really call them papers! They are very thick and perfect for your 3D projects such as boxes and gift bags. 
Hope you can see how amazing the foiled element is when you catch it in the light!
Right thats me done for today, I will be back with another post tomorrow - have a great Sunday!

Birthday Memories 1st Birthday Card

Hello there and a happy Friday to you. 
Today I am sharing a special card I made for a lovely friend to give to her nephew for his first birthday last weekend. My friend is very musical, in fact it's her career and her passion so I wanted to incorporate this into the card and what better way than the little creatures from the Birthday Memories papers who are playing their musical instruments!
I did get brave and I drew on some music notes, been a while since I did these and I had flashbacks to my GCSE music in 1989 which is probably the last time I had to draw notes!
I used the same fold as I have been sharing all week, and I just LOVED how it turned out with the little creatures creating a birthday march along the card. The sky and grass was achieved by sponging some Whisper White card with the ink pads.
I decorated the back so there was room to write a message for Jamie.
And then I decided to cut out another creature and added the bear to the envelope for a finishing touch! My friend loved the card and Jamie's Mummy couldn't believe I had made it! A good job done I reckon!

Petal Garden for Tuesday Club

Hello and welcome back to my blog today! Today's card is the last in my Graceful Garden series and is a simpler version of the one I have shared over the last 3 blog posts.
As you can see from the photo below this card doesn't have the full foldy party and just has a square on the front piece with a square to write on over the back piece of patterned paper. 
Just love this card, think I might save it for myself for my birthday!
Thanks for reading today, I'll be back with something different on Friday.
