A card for Mum

A pretty Easel Card I made for Mum this Mother's Day using
pretty paper from My Mind's Eye along with pearls, lace, flowers and ribbon,
giving it that Vintage loveliness Mum loves.  
The word Mum was cut using my Cricut Expressions Machine,
the letters were cut many times, to build height
giving it more of a 3d effect.

Baby Gift Bag - Cricut - Tags Bags Boxes & More 2

Hello to all my blogging friends. I know, you are probably saying Jodie who!!!!! It has been well over 12 months since my last post. As some of you may be aware I haven't well & needed to take some time out, this contributed to me losing my crafting mojo. I'm slowly getting some of my mojo back and have been playing around with my much loved cricut machine. 

I made this simple but adorable Baby Gift Box using the Onesie on page 45 in Tags Bags Boxes and More 2.

    Cut 1 @ 9" in plain coloured cardstock

    I wanted to use the pretty spot designer paper but needed the heavier weight of the cardstock. Using CCR (Cricut CraftRoom), I selected the again but this time @ 8.75"

    I cropped just the front side of the box, giving me the layered look I wanted.

    Then using CCR Basics - cut @ 1"
    Glitter and glimmered and stuck on with a pop dot for dimension.

    Decorate as you wish, stitch layers (faux or for real) I used wide lace around the neck and narrower lace around the legs, adding a pretty bow and pearl to finish off.

    Deep Ocean Challenge - Song Inspiration

    Hello Everyone,

    Hope you all had a wonderful Easter. We had beautiful sunny days, but today has turned cold and windy. I hope our winter does not come too soon.

    Alberto from Deep Ocean Challenge asked me to be a Guest Design Team member this week, thanks Alberto.

    If you haven't joined them before, they are biweekly, starting on a Tuesday finishing on a Monday.

      I have created my card on the song “Everything's Magic by the Angels”.  I hope you will join in on the fun, pop on over to see all the fabulous creations Design Team have to inspire you.

    I have something a little different from my usual adorable Magnolia Stamps, this time I have used Fairy Kira from Tickled Pink Stamps. I fell in love with her when I was a DT for TPS, she is one of my all time faves and I thought she would be perfect for this challenge and song choice.

    TOMIC Challenge 44 - Some Bunny Loves You

    Happy Easter Everyone,

    I am taking time out this long weekend to catch up with family & friends. I know I'll be eating way too much chocolate, I've been taste testing them for days, I'd hate to pass on any that were not perfect to my family & friends bahahahahaha.
    I hope whatever you have planned, you all have a wonderful Easter.

    It's time for another TOMIC Challenge
    The Official Magnolia Inspirations Challenge (TOMIC)

    Challenge 44 - Bunny + sketch by Liza + inspiration picture
    We want you to use a bunny somewhere on your card (can be a charm, printed paper, stamp, die, etc...), get inspired by this easter picture and use the marvellous sketch by Liza. We also want you to get inspired by the picture (colors, theme, etc...):

    I hope you will join us this week, I can't wait to see what you come up with.

    I have coloured up one of my favourite Easter images, she is from an older collection, I just couldn't resist, she is perfect for baby cards & gifts too.
