Mothers Day Presents

Evening all

Hope everyone is ok?

This week I have been working on mothers day stuff. My cards are drying so I will upload them soon. But what I wanted to show you today is something I saw on a website Beads Direct. This video inspired me to make something extra for my mum.

In the video it went on to say there is a kit you can work with but I have so many beads in my craft room I just got the bits and used what I had.

So here it is my complete bag charm for my mum, I hope you like it.

I made 2 of them. 1 in Pink the other Purple. Both have the same charm at the end.
Each took me 30 mins to make. Once I got the hang of making the loops for each bead I got quicker making them.
I also found it easier to make the beads and set out which each chain was going to hold then I stared to build on to it.
It was so much fun.
Well its Friday night and Mr Selfridge has started. See you guys soon.

Birthday Cards

Hi All

If you saw my post yesterday I was talking about how I started to improve on my digital crafting using CraftArtist 2 software by Serif.

After I had a play following the steps on the mother's day theam I started to have a go for this months birthday cards.

My first one was for my Aunty Maureen. I have gone with the same design as my magazine.

The design from Serif Software
Final card

My second was for my Mum. This time I went with flowers.Now you card see it but I have added glitter glue on the flowers. 


My final card was for my Dad. I used the Roald Dahl collection to make this.


So I hope you guys like these. I know my family will. Next month I think I will do more jewelry pieces and print our my mother's day cards. 

Have a lovely weekend and happy crafting.

Latest card creations

Evening all 

I do hope everyone is well?

I know its been a while since I posted anything but after the Christmas break I have been busy at work that I have not managed to create anything for me to share. 

However this week, Its been nothing but crafting with was very nice. I cant wait to show you guys. 

I was reading my latest Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine and saw an articular on how to use CraftArtist 2 software. I have had this on my laptop for ages when I needed it for the Roald Dahl CD-Roms but I couldn't understand how to use the elements to make a lovely card so I just used it for basic toppers. 

sorry waffling on again... the Magazine it was well presented an I was able to follow the easy steps and made a digital card with shadows and tags. I was very proud of myself.

I might change it a bit, but I was very happy to have these steps to help me along the way. 

I have not printed the card yet but when I do I will share it.

I have done a few more but have not taken pictures as waiting for some of the embellishments I have stuck on to dry.
