Another 21st Card

I could get used of this not working and being on holiday!!!

This is the second card I made for my Cousin, Louise who is 21 today.

I dusted off my old Charleston Tilda because I just love this image.

The papers are from the new Magnolia Christmas collection, but I think they look pretty with this image.

I have been shopping this morning and off shopping again tonight so I am going to sit down and do some colouring!

21st Birthday Card

I am off work this week on holiday so I thought I would post today. I made this card last night, but before I tell you about it I want to say that it was an idea of my Auntie Chanelle and I have done my version based upon this because I loved it soo much!!! Here is my Auntie Chanelle's card.

My Auntie Chanelle knows that I was recreating it and I know that she doesn't mind. We like to share (her ideas that is!!!).

It was just a brilliant idea that I would never dream of doing or thinking of it. Luckily my Auntie Chanelle recently bought me the dress up Tilda with clothes and I bought all the other stamps that I didn't have so I could recreate it.

My boutique;


Dress up Tilda in her undies with her Friend who has a lovely bag and credit card ready to pay!!! lol

The papers are from the Craft Box but I don't have any idea what they are called. I am tending just buy papers that I randomly like without thought to matching or what set they are from.

I hope you like it!

New "old" Magnolia xx

Hi All

Long time no speak!!

No excuses this time, I have just not had the time to blog and visit all my blogging friends. Sorry!

On a plus side I received some gorgeous cards from my Auntie Chanelle and Mum for my birthday.

Here is a card I made for Mum's friend and it's using my new Magnolia which was "won" for me by my Auntie Chanelle. I LOVE IT!!

I used my new Pixie Glen papers by Prima and had a play with some flowers because I never use them and everyone else is - lol!

Hope you like

Distress Ink Card

Well I am really glad that this week is over. I have had such a stressful week at work and I really couldn't wait until 5pm yesterday.

Here is a card that I made at my class at the Craft Box on Tuesday. I love it and it's not something that I would dream or think of doing.

We used Distress Inks for the background, but I really can't remember the names but they just blended so well together.

I also love the scalloped circle shaped card. I really want a circle cutter for my birthday to make circle cards. I am trying to convince my Sister to buy it me, lol!

I am now off to have a relaxing night with Martin. I have spent all day cleaning and sorting my craft stash out in to some order ready for the storage I am going to get as part of my birthday present. It's looking much better already.

Another Christmas Card x

What a day today has been!! I feel very stressed and I need a glass of wine to relax after my day at work today.

Here is another Christmas card using another of my pre-coloured images from my holiday.

It's another Santa from Magnolia.

The papers are from Dream Street called "Wonderland - Warm Hearts" which were purchased from the NEC last year. The image is coloured with Promarkers and Glossy Accents.

1st Christmas Card xxx

Here is my first Christmas card. I am determined to use all my unused stamps that I have bought over the last couple of years for Christmas cards. They were all "must haves" at the time!!! I always play safe and get out my Christmas stamps that I find make quick and easy cards, but that is not happening this year. I am going to be organised and not have a big rush on the run up to Christmas.

I stamped lots of Christmas images to colour while I was on holiday, either when travelling or relaxing. I coloured about 10 which I didn't think was bad.

Anyhow, here is my first card using one of the images I coloured. I am trying to go a bit vintage/shabby and traditional this year.

I have used a selection of Nitwit papers mixed with some Dovecraft "Let it Snow" papers. I am going to try and mix & match some of my papers.

I have coloured my old traditional Santa from Magnolia with Promarkers. The sentiment is stamped from a lovely set I bought last year and never used by Papermania which is a Tina Higgins design called "A Silent Night".

I hope you like, but I am now off to enjoy the rest of my Sunday before work tomorrow and I am also going to think of some more ideas for cards as my Sister went with me and Mum to the craft shop today and she purchased some papers/card templates for her own cards that she wants me to make for her for Christmas. I now have to make my own, Mum's, Sam's and cards for orders!!! I need to be organised with this lot! Oh well, it's keeps me busy!

2nd Post... I am doing well x

Don't faint, but it's another post from me!!

I am trying to be a good blogger from now on! Here is a wallet I made with my Auntie Chanelle on Thursday night when we crafted together because our craft class was cancelled. We used some of the new Patchwork Family papers from Rico Design which she kindly let me pinch a sheet of, they are gorgeous and I am soo jealous I don't have them.

When I was on holiday last week I missed a class at the Craft Box and they made a wallet and tag insert. I must say the class version was gorgeous, but Auntie Chanelle showed me how to make it.

I like to know how to make different cards and projects because it's nice to do something different rather than the same old.

I used my gorgeous Molly Blooms from the new range. I just love them and I can't make enough cards with them. They are so versatile even though they do have a summer theme.

I am now off to watch a DVD and relax with Martin and the family. Enjoy your night and I may even be back tomorrow because I have started to make my first Christmas card!!

I am back x

Hi Everyone,

It seems such a long time since I last blogged, but I have been on my holiday! It was fab and I really didn't want to come home. It was so nice to be away with Martin, Mum, Dad and Owen. He is still my little brother but he is growing up so fast and he just isn't a little boy anymore.

Me & Martin went a few days later than Mum and Dad and when we arrived off the train Owen was shouting for Martin and not me!!! Little bugger!!

Anyhow, here a card I made a craft class at the Craft Box a coulpe of weeks ago using the new Molly Bloom Stamps and Magnolia chimney. It's such a pretty card and I love the layout/style of the card.

I am really sorry because I can't remember the papers used. I am so out of touch with my papers at the moment. Here is a close up of the coloured image done with my Promarkers.

Here is a little snap of me and Martin on our jollies!

I will hopefully be back over the weekend and I do promise to try and visit my blogging friends. I am really sorry for being such a bad commentor.

Off to the beach xx

Well it's been a long time again since I blogged, but I have been super busy with work, card orders and preparing for my holiday.

I feel so bad because I have not visited any of my blogging friends for a while, but I am going to pick up with my posting after my holidays because my blog has been too neglected.

I have a much needed 2 week holiday and hopefully in 5 days I will be hitting the beach like Molly below, lol!

I LOVE my new Molly's, my Mum helped me build my new beach themed collection up.

See you soon x

Is everyone still there???

Hi Everyone,

I am back with a card that I made for my Mum's birthday a couple of weeks ago. I used my Magnolia with Cake from the last collection with some gorgeous papers that I have forgot the name of (sorry).

I intend to have a bit of a blog hop tonight and tomorrow and I am so sorry to all my blogging friends because I have just fell out with Mr Blogger lately. I spend most of my time crafting now rather than blogging. I suppose that is the right way round I guess.

Tomorrow I celebrate my 1st wedding anniversary so I have removed "newly" married from my profile. It's a happy day, but I am very sad that a whole year has passed since my perfect wedding day!!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend peeps!

I am back x


I hope everyone is okay. I have been on holiday from work this week and I have had a fab week apart from our computer was "hacked" on Bank Holiday Monday. It's been a nightmare so I only picked the computer up from PC World on Friday. You don't realise how much you use the PC until you have it taken away. I am sorry that I have not dropped by to see my favourite blogs but this is why.

I dashed straight to the Craft Box last week because the new Magnolia range was due in. I picked up my favourite papers from the range along with a couple of the new stamps. It would be rude not too, lol!!!

I made a card straight away with my favourite stamp & paper of the new collection. Here it is..........

I never buy stamps like this, but I really wanted this image because I think it is so cute. I also had a go at colouring with my promarkers since my class a couple of weeks ago. I hope it shows!!

Right I am off now to go and have a relaxing night watching TV with the family before work tomorrow. It's been so nice being off work with my Mum just doing normal things and I feel like I have been off for ages.

Just Gorjuss!!


I had a fab day yesterday at the Craft Box. The lovely Meesh did a class on how to colour with Promarkers. I learnt so much and I can't wait to play some more. I now feel like I can colour properly, lol!!

Here is another card that I made over the weekend. It is with my new Gorjuss stamp, love it.

I coloured the image with my Distress Inks again and used some lovely Strawberry paper. I made some flowers with my Marianne Die and added a a few pins with beads threaded through.

Strawberry Molly xx

Hi Everyone,

Well, last night was the first night that I felt like doing a bit of crafting and once I had started I couldn't stop.

I decided to get out my Strawberry Molly and Herb Seat and do a bit of masking. I also coloured the images with my Distress Inks for a change.

Here it is......

I used my new Stella Rose papers and I just love the vibrant colours. I edged all the papers with stickles and added glamour dust to my image.

I used some of my Magnolia flowers which were still not opened until this card. I really enjoyed colouring with the "DI" and I think my colouring has certainly come along since the last time I tried.

I also made a card with my new Gorjuss Stamp, which I love and I will try and blog this tomorrow.

Magnolia Card xxx

Hi All,

I have not been the best with my blogging and commenting. I am very sorry.

My asthma has once again been a total nightmare and I am struggling. I haven't slept one single night this week straight through.

I haven't been able to craft either because I just don't have the patience at the moment, not even to colour!!

Here is a card that I made a couple of weeks ago at a class at the Craft Box. I love it when we use my favourite stamps.

I don't usually buy Easter stamps because I just don't get enough use out of them, but this one is really sweet. I don't have it myself so it was nice to use it at the class.

We used the new Marianne Dies to make the flowers. I wasn't sure at first, but now I love them I have bow bought the die!

Don't Faint, but another post.....

I thought I would be daring and post for the second time this weekend!

I made this card a couple of days ago for a card order that my Mum asked for.

I used two of the new Magnolia images which had their first "ink up" this week. How bad am I????

I decided to make an aperture with my oval nellie dies and place the picket fence from Make it Colourful in the background.

I coloured both images with my Aqua Promarkers and made the clouds myself by cutting a basic cloud shape out and inking inside the DIY stencil with my DI in Broken China.

I know the front of the card looks a little empty, but I need to put quite a long name on the top so I haven't put this on yet. Just looking for the right letters!

Owen's Birthday Cards xxx

Hi there!

How bad am I? Almost 1 month since I last blogged. I have been really busy/stressed with work and have lots on at the moment so I just haven't had the time to blog.

I am hoping to do some blog hopping this weekend as seen as I have a couple of extra days off from work.

My little Brother was 12 on Thursday (28th) and here are the cards that I made for him;

My Mum & Dads card was made using my new Molly Bloom Camper Van stamp. I love it and great for those difficult teenage boy cards.

My own card was made using the Molly Bloom Donkey. I know it's not totally "boyish" but he loves horseracing so thought it would be fun to make this card. Check out my racehorse charm!!!

My Sister's card was made using a Kenny K image. Plain and simple because my Sister doesn't craft.

My Auntie's card which she asked me to make for her using another Kenny K image. I am loving these at the moment because they are so quick and cheap to make different cards.

Hope you like them all. Enjoy the bank holiday weekend.
