Amazing Show

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all well.

I just have to do this blog post to say a big thank you to you all who watched, purchased and e mailed in to our show on Create and Craft today. It was an amazing show we  really enjoyed it we thought we had gone very well prepared with demos using every product but the products all sold out so quickly we couldnt believe it so a great big thank you to you all for making it a great show and a bit of comedy along the way with the lovely Dean.

Right I am going to put a picture up for you which was made using the Best of Mdf bundle and the country pastels cd . I hope you enjoy looking at this.

Have a great weekend and dont forget to put the clocks forward tonight.

Thanks again

Birthday Card

Hello Everyone,

First of all I must say I am so sorry for such a long time between my posts this time, Its been so busy these last few weeks I just have been working from getting up early to going to bed rather late. So a big SORRY .

Today I am showing you a card which I was going to demo on Friday the 6th March on Create and Craft but we didn't get chance to get to my 2nd demo so I thought I would do it on here for you all. I know the flowers have sold out with Create and Craft now so please bear with us until we get more.

First of all I started with a 14cm square card blank in cream. On the opening side I then cut it at 7. 5cm and the bit of cream I cut off I then cut that to 3 cm, this will be added back onto the card a bit later on.
I then cut a piece of the backing paper from Creative cards cd  which I had printed on cream paper, to 6 cm wide and 14cm long, then cut a flag on the bottom of this paper, then attach to a slightly bigger piece of cream card and trim leaving a narrow border.
Now back to the base card, cut a piece of backing paper to fit the top part of the card and also the small bit which is 3 cm wide, leaving a narrow border, I have distressed the edges of the backing paper with gathered twigs distress ink pad. I also did this on the flag part for the middle of the card.
Now attach the pointed part of the flag piece to the narrow 3cm piece of card approx in the middle I used cosmic shimmer glue so it sticks quickly.when this has dried level  the top part of the card with the 3cm part thus leaving a gab in the middle for added interest, glue again with cosmic shimmer, being careful not to put glue on all the flag piece., Trim across the top of the card to make it all level. Now I cut a die cut circle,edged  with distress ink. Attach this to the centre of the card,, then add a little of the web from the Dreamees Twines and Things set.  Now I have used Divine doodles stamp set ,stamped with gathered twigs distress ink pad. arranged on the bottom of the die cut to make a nice arrangement. Stamped a little Happy Birthday sentiment added this across the die cut again to add a little extra interest. Then just twirling some of the twine again from the Twines and Things set around my tweezers to hold in the swirl add these to the sides of the flowers using hot glue, also adding a little bow in the centre at the bottom of the card. Then just add some Dreamees pearls to the centre of all the flowers and then 3 on each side at the top of the card.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at this card and I hope you can try it too.

Have fun

Carol xx
