New Cards Shortly

Have had a very busy week and not been able to spend anytime crafting so no new cards to post. I did go up to the Card Studio in Maidstone on Saturday for their open day. Fantastic shop and Jayne Harrow is an amazing designer. She has just bought out her own Magazine, check out the website for more details (link on my bloglist). I will try and get some time this week and post again. Have not forgotten about the blog candy either. All is in hand. TFL Sarah

Finally Some Pictures

Took some photos today of projects from last week's demo. Apologies for the quality but the daylight was not too good (and neither was the photographer!)

A Mother's day idea using the new stitch templates. I don't usually enjoy sewing but this came together very easily. Does not really show in the photo but used the Jewelled co-ordination
card that has a lovely pearl finish.
Next a cute pop up card using one of the new stamp sets from Clare Curd's Signature range, easy to use and great value at £5.99 a set.
A couple of 3D Projects, a simple little Easter Basket made with the Scalloped papers from Papermania and a cute little box. The stamps are from the Snagem duo's range.

Next a cute little bunny from the Candyfloss and Marshmallow set, they are so sweet these rabbits. Ideal for Easter, birthdays and would also make a lovely new baby card. The little fairy is another of the Snagem Duo's. I have mixed two sets together and sat the fairy on the toadstool using simple masking. I embossed the image with clear embossing powder and then cracked it for an interesting finish.
An acetate card decorated with the new Jewelled stickers, very easy to use and look effective. They also match the Snagem stamp duo's. Floral card features the free cover mount from this months Creativity Life. It stamps beautifully and includes all the stamps shown plus another couple I did not use on the card. The mag is £2.00 so well worth it.

Finally back to our cute little friends. First card uses the free stickers on the Creativity Mag, quick and simple. Next we have some of the decoupage which also includes the backing papers.
Sorry about the awkward layout, next time I hope it would look a bit neater. TFL Sarah

Sorry Again!

Still no pictures, I have been very distracted and now very concerned about my cat, Chubbs who went missing a week and a half a go. We thought he would come home (he was supposed to go to the vets to be neutured the day before he went away, Did he know). We are in full motion of printing leaflets, posters and searching for him. I really can't get my head round anything else at the moment.

Getting Ready To Post Some Blog Candy

Will be getting my camera out tomorrow to photograph my cards from Saturday's demo as I really need daylight to get a good picture. Only taken me about a week longer than I said but time just flies past! Have also decided to offer some blog candy so I will have a little rummage in my box of goodies and post it up to tomorrow so please check back. TFL Sarah

Still Getting There

Making some progress this week, had a great demo at The Range in Clacton, thanks to all the lovely peeps I met on the day. The new Papermania products are lovely and went down very well. Got to make quite a few cards and will be photographing them in the next day or two. Thanks for your patience, I will get something for you to look at very soon. Don't forget to check out the Docrafts for more ifo on these products. TFL

Brand New Blog

This is my first post on my new blog. Took me a while to set it up but I am going to do my best to post regularly and put my cards and projects on. If you come along to my demos I will also be uploading templates and measurements for projects shown on the day. I will be making some cards this week with the new range of Docrafts stamps and hope to have something to see on here by the week-end. If you like my background check out thecutestblogontheblock, they have loads of gorgeous backgrounds and widgets to choose from. TFL
