Such fun!

Morag and I have put together a beautiful kit and have been having a lovely time creating all sorts of items to showcase it.  Here are some pictures of the kit:

and here are some of the items I have made over the past week:

a vintage butterfly card - arent these new Prima papers lovely!
A cute box to store some stash in
a trifold card - been meaning to make one of these for ages and it was just crying out to be finished with one of the lovely prima flowers included in the kit
A layout of me!!  doesnt happen very often!  must get round to doing some more.....
A beautiful gift bag - trouble is I think I might find it too difficult to give this one away!

The kit costs just £25 saving £5 on the retail value. The optional stamp set (shown on all items apart from the butterfly card) is just £5 as an add-on (RRP £6.99).  We have also compiled our sweet ideas journal (included) which contains pictures of all the projects that Morag and I have made giving you inspiration to help you get the most from your kit.

To reserve your kit or find out more information go to our website, use the contact form and we'll send you full details of the contents.  Please be quick though as we already only have a few left.

Thanks for looking and sorry I havent been updating as often recently but now you all know why!

Early Christmas

Hi everyone, have been busy making quite a few things but they have either already been sent (a few birthday cards) without me taking photos as they have been pretty similar to other stuff I have made (5 year old birthday cards and a couple of reflection cards) or are still half finished or "need tweaking" so I only have one picture to show for myself at the moment! I am trying to keep up with the Christmas challenges at although my Angel and Decoration cards havent yet been made and my Bell card is still waiting to have the bell attached! However I have made the Elf card and here he is:

Its an easel card with the bottom part being made up of strips of paper so it looks like a roof - the photo doesnt do the card much justice I'm afraid as it looks really cool in real life. Card is made up using nestibility dies and then again I have used the fabulous My Minds Eye Colourful Christmas papers, Chimney and Elf are magnolia stamps, the robin is by Ollyphant, the leaves are sizzix and the greeting is hand written for once! I would like to enter this into their challenge this fortnight which is Elf.

Thanks for looking! :)
