Anything But A Card

Hello and welcome back to my blog,
I have two projects to share with you today .The first is using the Window box Thinlits, great for sending a little gift.

Window Box 

I added the holographic lid and cut some extra card to cover the unattractive underside of the holographic card. This worked really well and made a more sturdy box. 

Cookie Cutter Builder to new

This idea came in to my head as soon as I saw the Coffee Break Suite, I wanted to show my customers how they can use the different products from last year occasion's catalogue to new products in the annual catalogue.

What a card on anything but a card, well I had to link in the Coffee Cup Framelits dies.

Please visit the other Jems and see what projects have been created.

In Color Combination Challenge

In Colour Collection 2017-2019

Julie Kettlewell my up-line asked "Starting w/c 5th June why don't we do a colour challenge on here and share a make with the colour combo". I thought this was a great idea so I hope you like what you see. I have been quite poorly recently and found this gave me something else to think about.

I used the Hostess stamp Background Bits this led to my design then worked on the orders of  colours, set by the challenge.

May Blog Hop

Hello and welcome,
I'm back on the blog hop again  and this months theme is 'Something For The Men'.
Back in January I held a class on male cards. so I have used two sets I like the most.    

Lovely as a Tree :

This card was made using the Mighty Oak 
I was showing how versatile this card can be for many events Birthday, Retirement, Sympathy.

Nailed it:

I am so sad that this set is retiring as I love it. (It has now moved to my keeps shelf) 
I would like to thank my down line Linda Ellis for letting me CASE this card which of course I had ideas for tweaking moving the tools higher and adding the Happy Fathers day at the bottom of the tape.

Urban District

Also retiring is Urban District which I have used to make my fathers day card.

Thank you for looking at my blog please carry on the blog hop and see what other projects have been made by the talented Jems.

March Blog Hop

Welcome to the March Blog Hop Colour Challenge

Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron & Sweet Sugarplum

As we are using these colours for this months blog I had to use the Glimmer Paper Assortment as I do love a bit of sparkle . 
That then gave me the idea for the stamp set to use.

You could replace the glitter card for coloured card embossed for affect,  with a different message if you are not a glitter lover.

Thank you for dropping in please leave a comment and follow my blog.
