Crafter's Companion October Challenge Buttons & Bows

Evening everyone! 

I'm back with a quick reminder that there's still chance to enter this month's Crafter's Companion FB challenge, which is Buttons & Bows and which you can enter here. There's an opportunity to win a £30 gift voucher, so go on and give it a whirl! 

For my card I used my favourite character of all time Party Paws. 

Although we are all in Christmas mode it's my wedding anniversary at the end of November, so this may just come in handy ;-). Using the paper kit made it quite a quick and easy card to make.

Ingredients used:
Party Paws Paper Crafting Kit
Die’sire Beautiful Butterflies
Glue (All types)
Glitter Glue

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

Giant Exploding Box With Wedding Cake


Had a fab day today, as took my daughter to see Disney On Ice at the NIA and we had a really good time! First time she has been to anything "seated" and she really enjoyed it despite trying to peer around the girl sitting in front with the giant, flashing Mickey Mouse ears! 

On a crafty note I wanted to share another of my makes using the Big Score, which launched on Create and Craft this week. Hope you've all got yours on the way :-). 

I used the A3 Double Sided Centura Pearl, which is absolutely lush and such a luxury! It's brilliant for a project like this, as you don't have to worry about the plain side! The card used to decorate is also from the very luxurious A3 Card Pack Elegance.

All of the boxes open, so you could put chocolates, jewellery or any other gifts inside to suit! 

A3 Centura Pearl Double Sided
A3 Card Pack – Elegance
Die’sire Embossacilious Folder – Rose Vine
Die’sire – Beautiful Butterflies
Collal Glue – Tacky and Glue Gel
Stick on Gems

Scruffy Little Cat Nicola


Hope you've all had a good weekend. Mine's been really good, as I've spent most of it with my daughter crafting, baking and helping her to ride her bike. Good times! 

Anyway I'm back tonight with another of my makes for the Spectrum Noir shows which start on Create and Craft tomorrow at 12pm. 

I used the SLC stamp "Nicola" and coloured her in using my Spectrum Noirs. Sometimes I don't always feel like making a full card, as it can take me hours, as I'm a bit of a faffer lol!, so with this stamp I decided to make a simple door hanging. It would look great on the bedroom door, wardrobe or even a set of drawers. 

I created the background by using the Die'sire Chantilly Lace Frame and cutting it out twice on different colour card and then just cutting into the black piece to make it smaller.

Wild Thing.......

Afternoon everyone!

Hope you're all well! I've finally reached the light at the end of my tunnel and am back to a little normality after my dog sitting duties. My husband is away for the weekend and I have nothing better to do than craft, craft, craft! 

I'm back today with a card I wanted to share for Crafter's Companion's forthcoming Spectrum Noir shows on Create and Craft, which air on Monday 13 October 2014 at 12.00pm (subject to change) and are being brought to us by the very talented Leann. 

I used my Scruffy Little Cat Jessica Stamp and coloured her in using my Spectrum Noir pens. "Wild Thing" is an accompanying sentiment and I made a faux banner to stamp it onto.
