Love templates

Hi All

I just wanted to give you an update on how I am getting on with my sister’s wedding invites which I have done and finished. (So happy)


It did help that I made a template that remind me where I was going and having the punches in the same place.

Using a scrap bit of Paper for my design then backing it up with acetate

I was very nervous doing this project as I had to make the same card over again but I have to admit my cards just got better each time I did them and my confidence grew that I am ready to make my Christmas cards and sell some of them as well. Not sure how I will do it might use eBay to start off with. If anyone has any tips I would like to hear them.

Next step is the insert which they have chosen this weekend

The future seems so bright and clear when I picture it with you near

Going to be a busy October

Hi All

I know its been a while but I have been busy working on the design for my sisters invitation. She and her partner have agreed that it will be simple and easy to post out to friends and family.I hope you all like it. I would put a copy of the draft that I gave them but silly me forgot to take a picture. I think I was rushed to get it done and rush it over to London for final approval. I am feeling a bit nervous as I have not make cards in a batch before. However if it does go well I guess there is no reason why I can make a batch of Christmas cards in the same way and sell them to people?
Come to think about it why am I thinking about Christmas when we are mid way through October.
Last month I had a made a few birthday cards which was really nice to get back of the swing of it. It has been a while since I have been crafting that when I was tidying my desk there was a thin layer of dust on the surface.
But I have got my memento going and have a busy few months planed jewellery making after work and making cards at weekends. This week I saw some nice downloads on the DoCrafts you never know next month I might post a range of different cards I can make with a set of downloads.
Here are a few cards I have made since my last post hope you all like them.
