Cricut Retreat - WOW

Morning all well its a lovely sunny day for once lol and today I thought I would share with you the beautiful project that I made on the Cricut Retreat. It was run by the lovely lady Melanie Heaion who I must say has the patience of a saint. I went with my friend Margaret Brown and we add an amazing time. I could not believe on my first day that I would be able to come home with this beautiful picture all made with my Cricut expression and once again I have fallen in love with it and my Cricut is now proudly sat on my desk again.

New Launch From Crafters Companion

Morning all on a beautiful sunny day for a change it was absolutely freezing yesterday. Well I am very excited about the new launch from Crafters Companion on Monday the 20th May at 8 o'clock on Create and Craft TV. This is a stunning set of two CD Rom's called The Diary of an Edwardian Lady and Nature Notes and the images have been taken from the book by Edith Holden. For the background of the card I have used the Die Sire Embossing folder Swirl from Crafters Companion which is a lovely 8x8 size just perfect for your cards. The word March has been cut out using my Ecraft machine and the topper is from the CD Rom The Diary of an Edwardian Lady.

Card for a Baby Girl

Hi all well a few days ago I shared with you a cot that I had made for one of my daughters friends who is having a baby, so today I thought I would also share with you the card that I made to go with it. For this I used the amazing SVG file that Nandia Fytraki shared with us in the 2nd edition of the Crafters Companion magazine Crafters Inspiration and as always her SVG files cut amazingly on the Ecraft machine. To make this make the cot I  used backing papers from Beatrix Potter CD Rom Miss Tiggy Winkle and they are adorable.

Crafters Companion Monthy Challenge is Masculine

Morning all well I can't believe that we are in May already but I am loving the lighter mornings and nights it makes you feel so much better. Well as it is May its the start of the Crafters Companion Blog Challenge and this month it is Masculine and another chance to win a £30 voucher so that you can treat yourself, but don't forget you must use Crafters Companion products to enter. So this month I made this large exploding box and put a picture of the fishing shed on the front. I used my lovely Ecraft machine to help me with this project from Crafters Companion. I used the brick papers from the Cute Companions Summer Stories (Outdoor) from Crafters Companion and the stamped image is from their SWALK range of stamps and of course I coloured it in using my Spectrum Noir pens.
