Medusa's Daughter

I've missed the last couple of Delicious Doodles challenges, so figured I should join in with the current one. It's a 3,2,1 challenge. I have used 3 pearls, 2 papers from the Far East stack and 1 Delicious Doodles image.

Pop of pink

This card uses another stamp set from the package mentioned a couple of posts back. I liked the way the image on the packaging was only coloured with little touches of pink, so I based my card on that.

Flower girl

This adorable image was from a magazine freebie set by Wee Stamps. After looking them up to see what else they have to offer, I think I will soon be getting more of their images.

Happy mail

I'm a little behind with posting this. On Friday I received an awesome package in the mail. It was the blog candy I won from Kelly's blog a little while back. I had to wait all weekend before I could play with it though. So on Monday I made this card using lots of items from the package. The package contained a lot of firsts for me including my first Stampin! Up sets, my first Riley stamps and my first image from The Greeting Farm. I love everything that was sent to me, especially the card that she included with it. When I've finished this post I'll be off to play with my new goodies some more.

Here is a little peek at what was in the package.

I want to finish the post with a massive thank you to Kelly. Thank you for such a wonderful prize! It was well worth waiting for!

Canary Love

This is my first attempt at colouring hair with the line left in make it look shiny. It didn't go perfect, but I will give it another try. Sometimes when I'm colouring an image for the first time I will google it to try and see how other people have used it. I did that for this image and used the card here as inspiration.

Ginger golfer

This was a request from my Mum for someone from the rugby club she is involved with. She asked me to have a golfer wearing the club colours, and it had to have forty on the card. This is what I came up with for her.

I wanted to use this Delicious Doodles image on a card for James because it reminds me of when we went to the wildlife park and spent a lot of time watching the Meerkats. I don't really have any Meerkat papers though so I had to settle for an animal print one from DCWV's Safari Kids.

Blink nails

Last night James and I went to see Blink 182. I had a lot of spare time before we went so I painted my nails. There is a picture below to show the album cover these nails are based on. 

I used to go to gigs almost every month, but I haven't been to one for a while, so I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately we missed the first band due to James working, but I don't know anything by them anyway. Both Blink 182 and the support act we did see (The All-American Rejects) were really good though. Here's a couple of pictures showing those two bands.

Happy Father's Day

My family don't really send cards for Father's day or Mother's day so this card is for James' dad. It uses papers from the Space Age 6x6 pad by Best Creations and an Elzybells alphabet. There is silver ink all around the edges of the three panels, but the lighting has made it only show on the top.

Pop Star

This is possibly going to be my Auntie's birthday card. I have a week to decide and maybe make a new one. I knew I wanted to use this image for her, but I feel as though this card is missing something. It might just need a sentiment, but where I put the image doesn't leave much room for one.

Friday, 15 June 2012


This is just a really quick and simple card. I used a couple of my favourite craft items on it; the Swiss dots embossing folder and the Kingfisherlicious colour spray. The butterfly is from the Thank You set by Hobbycraft.

Paper bracelets

When I first tried paper bead bracelets I promised my Mum I would make her one. I finally got around to making it. It uses a paper from Basic Grey's Oxford 6x6 pad. 

When I gave the bracelet to my Mum she asked if I would make one for a colleague of hers who is leaving. Her colleague likes purple so I used two purple papers. The paper on the left is from a Kate Knight 6x6 pad which was a freebie and the paper on the right is from the Celebrations 6x6 pad by Paper Cellar.

Happy birthday Grandma!

Today is my Grandma's birthday, but the card I am sharing is not the one I sent her. I ended up sending her the one from this post. I just wanted to dedicate the post to her for her birthday.

This card uses Fallen by Delicious Doodles, and some paper that was in my scrap box. The flowers are from Papermania's Petal Pouch, and I coloured to match her dress. I used gems for the flowers centres, and finished off the card with a sentiment from Hobbycraft's Thank You set.

This is the card I made for my Grandma to give to my Uncle for his 50th birthday on Friday. It uses a decoupage sheet from Craft Creations. I didn't take a picture from the side, but there were eight layers.

This is a thank you card which James needed to give to his parents. It uses chipboard and paper from the Sugar & Spice range by Dovecraft. I couldn't find the right thank you sentiment to put on it, so I ended up using the sweet chipboard instead.

Crafter's Companion

I recently bought a couple of Crafter's Companions stamp sets. They are so sweet I had to use them straight away. This is the couple of card's I made with them.

The first one uses the Grandma set. My Grandma's birthday is coming up later this month so I might send this one to her. I used a paper with a hopscotch pattern for the background to keep with the theme of childhood games.

The second card uses the Best Friends set. I knew I wanted to use this floral ribbon which was recently given to me by James' mum, so I coloured their dresses in to match it.

Thursday, 7 June 2012


This is one of those cards that was just made for the sake of making something, so I don't really have anything to say about it. The paper is from the Safari Kids mat stack which I got for my birthday, so that's another to check off the list of birthday presents I have used. That list might take a while to get through. I am definitely one of those crafters who hoards things, especially paper pads.

Pen pal

Last month I joined another craft forum called Craft Bubble. They have a section for pen pals, so I looked in there and found a couple of people to write to. This is the first card I have sent. I waited until she had let me know it arrived before posting it on here.

Teddy Bo

I've recently reorganised my craft room and realised that I have a lot of sets which came free with magazines which haven't been inked up. This card is making a start on using some of them. The bear is from a set by Teddy Bo & Co. The actual stamp isn't holding anything so I gave her a balloon from a Crafter's Companion set. Both the image stamps were from unused freebie sets. The sentiment comes from the Forever Friends 'Black and Gold (Phrases)' set.

Ska Man

Friday is my Uncle's 50th birthday, and Saturday he is having a big party. I took inspiration from the card James made for my birthday and painted this card for him.

Happy birthday Keeley!

Today is James' sister's 30th birthday. This is the card we have sent her. All the paper used on this are a digital design I did based on the Beatles.

While I was having a tidy in my craft room/my Grandma's attic I found an old Spirograph set. I thought it would be fun to use for cards, so I had a quick play with it. There are so many more frames I can make with it I will definitely be playing with it some more.

Harry Potter

I made this card for the CPS sketch. These Pixie Dust Studio images are adorable, and I have been meaning to use them for a while.
