Meet Lorna... pop up die

For today's card I have made a birthday card for one of Harvey's friends.  I wanted to use my Penny Black Kitty and they make me laugh, cute but comical so fine I thought for a boy.

Lorna as you can see has a HUGE area for decorating so it makes choosing 
images or dies fun.

These dies are so easy to use and will be in stock mid July at Crafts U Love

The Penny Black is in stock now at Crafts U Love

Its been mad busy recently.  Finally on my day off tomorrow :)

Another Poppy card

Today I am sharing another Poppy card.  The three characters from Karen Burniston are adorable, I love them all but I do think Poppy is my favourite, of course, its an owl.

I used the NEW Poppy die along with the Accordion Fancy label
and the NEW coming soon Seasons Fancy Frame edges

The left hand side frame is how the dies is designed to work
and the right hand side was made using some waste that I was left over with
reason being I was running out the of the gold glitter and didn't have enough
to finish the hole frame so I made this up. 

Poppy is perched on a cut down All Seasons Tree

I decorated the front panel with a sentiment from an old DOCrafts stamp

Poppy and  Seasons Fancy Frame edges will be in stock at Crafts U Love
Mid July and I will be demoing all the Karen Burniston range Saturday 26th July

Accordion Fancy label is in stock at Crafts U Love

June Designer Challenge - Photo Accordion albums

This months challenge was to make  Photo Accordion Albums - here's your chance to show off the people you love or your favourite things or your ancestors or garden or pets or . . . doesn't matter. Make an Accordion Album that showcases at least one photo. Any length album, any shape album ,any theme album, but get a photo or photos on there!

So here is my album and it showcases the Katie Accordion that will be released Middle July :)

I had lots of choices for my album and I was torn between my boys and Milo but I decided to make an album of a recent family event.  My nieces wedding to Tom just a few weeks ago.

I have used the butterfly embossing folder from Karen Burniston/Elizabeth Craft Designs
and rubbed over with Champagne Mist Fantastix to give a really shimmery look, not evident in 
the photos unfortunately. I chose red to go with Leanne's beautiful flowers.

I did not emboss all the frames, just the two either side.  I decorated the middle one with the little corner flourish from the same die set.

Its so simple to make these lovely keepsakes, something to either send or keep 
on your mantle.

Only few minutes left on ebay for Pro Dies

*SNEAK PEEK* Summer 2014 Pop it Ups Release (part 1)

For all the Karen Burniston fans you will want to check out Karen's post HERE to see some of the new Summer 2014 designs.

I've had the wonderful dies for some weeks now and its been killing me not to share!

As I am sure you are aware I am a big owl fan.  And so it seems is most of Karens design team.  So of course pester power won and Karen designed this VERY ADORABLE "Poppy"  owl die....  Now I will share with you the funny little story I posted to the Designer Challenge Team along with this card.

"Now there was some funny goings on in my shed last night. I left Poppy in here, locked the shed but some how Percival turned up and ended up staying the night. I said to them its no good, you'll have to make an honest owl out of her. Good job we had her crown and veil on standby encase of such shenanigans."

And thus  Poppy and Percy were duly married.

You can also see the wonderful "Ring Accordion" die in action.

Taken from Karen's blog

The Ring Accordion Album was requested by Els van de Burgt, the founder and owner of Elizabeth Craft Designs. She had an idea for an accordion album with a circle inside a circle that could be decorated as ornaments for Christmas. I came up with the Ring Accordion design, which features a scalloped frame edge(included with the set) and two sizes of ornament tops in addition to decorator circle dies. Once again, this die will coordinate perfectly with the Circle and Fancy Accordion Albums  but will not exactly duplicate the decorator dies so they can be mixed between the sets for more possiblities.

She can explain it oh so much better.

All these dies will be available mid July and will be carried
by Crafts U Love in the UK.

Come along and see these in action in Crafts U Love Birthday weekend

A froggy Birthday

I made this some weeks ago but forgot to blog it.  It was for one of Harveys closest and oldest friends Adam who as you can see what 11 the other month.  Adam and Harvey have been friends since nursery and its a sad year this year as they will be going to different secondary schools  :(  But they only live around the corner so I hope that they keep in touch.

Adam loves football and I am sure that the frog in pants would
have given him a smile :)

The card is the Lucy Label pop up from Elizabeth Craft Designs/Karen Burniston

The frog is from Marianne

Both are from Crafts U Love

Happy Birthday Mum

It's my Mums birthday today and here is the card I made her using a Taylored Expressions die called "A ray of sunshine" cutting plate and a cute cat stamp from Paper Smooches.  Both from Crafts U Love

My Mum loves all things cute and cuddly and I knew this card would give her a smile.

Now I had a mental moment when I thought "eeeks what will I do I have no envelope" but then I was like DUH I have my We R Memory Keepers punch board and I made this envelope for the card.  Much nicer than a plain envelope.  

Happy Birthday Mum, Love You xx
