Easter Basket

Good Morning!
Easter is a couple weeks away and with that I've started to make some paper Easter baskets out of the scallop envelope die for the big shot. These baskets are quiet quick and easy to make. Just cut out 4 envelopes and attach them together at the sides. If you are careful you should be able to get 4 cut out of 1 sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock. The insides are bought but you could make them yourself with a crimper. I haven't filled them it with chocolate yet because if I bought the easter eggs now there wouldn't be any left by the time Easter is here. Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Layout

Hey Stampers,

I've been trying to find some inspiration. I went through some old pictures to scrapbook and found that I have a butnch of Christmas photos that I have done anything with yet. This is a 2 page layout that I created for some of them. I used the decor stencils for the main background. I really like using the stencils on cards and scrapbook pages. Gives it a different look. I hope you enjoy and thanks for checking in.

Happy Stamping!!

Hey All,

Another beautiful day here in London. I'm really hoping that this means that spring will really be here before we know it. I thought this card was an appropriate posting for today. This is the other easel card that I made. I cased the colouring of the hummingbird from here. I love the tempting terquoise on the bird's belly. Also, I just can't get enough of this Sweet Pea DSP. So many different designs and colours in one pack. No matter what colour of card stock you have you'll be able to find a DSP sheet that will co-ordinate in this pack.
Thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave a comment. Hope you get a chance to enjoy the beautiful weather.

Looks like Spring

Hello Stampers,

It is a beautiful day in London today, the sun is shining and the temperature is above 0. Who could ask for anything more. Today I'm sharing a card that I made my dad for his 60th birthday. It's an easel card. I've made a couple of those lately and have found that they are easier to make than I thought, the hardest part is deciding the size of the card you want to make. This is a regular size card but tomorrow I'll be showing a 6x6 easel card that I made. Hope you like and feel free to leave a comment.
