My turn again :)
Its nearly upon us.......Valentines!!!!!!
I thought as its my first valentines with my new man I would make his card.
I layered some burgundy card onto a black card blank and used a Jenni Bowlin Kiss bingo card as the main feature of the card. I added some black ribbon and finshed the embellishments off with some black adhesive gems.
I used the With Love and hearts stamps from the SCRIBBLE SENTIMENTS CLEAR STAMPS

I had to make a card for a friend of mine, whose birthday it is this month, and dint want to do the usual 'birthday' card, so decided to do something slightly different. Although ive used scrapbook papers for the main design, i used the sentiment from the Funky Flowers stamp set, which i must admit, has to be one of my fav stamp sets, as its just so cute.
After creating this style of card (which for the life of me i have forgotten whats its called???) and then using a punch to create the border, it just needed finishing with a simple sentiment, which i used from the stamp set.
So, thats my post for the time being, till next time, take care

I'll give you a little low down on the Californian cuisine.... Oh where to start...
Well first of all there's the cheesecake factory, now we HAD to make to two trips to this
one, it truly is the BEST, we NEED one in the UK. I had the most juiciest steak
at the Outback last night, had Italian at Buca Di Beppo (the most eclectic restaurant I've
ever been in. I think half of CHA were there that night including Mr Holtz and Ms Helmuth
etc. Also visited Fire & Ice, on recommendation. That was fantastic such a great concept
oh yeah and the food was great too. Needless to say the 6lb I lost before I went away has probably
gone back on again and again and again!!!
OK enough of my munching.

Using small squares is a good way of using up scraps that you might have in your stash and can look really effective.

By adding some red stones and a bow (this I made from some ribbon I salvaged from a cracker), I was pleased with the outcome that I had made from scraps.
I hope your all enjoying your sunny sunday. Happy crafting Px

This year means a new start for me, for those of you that dont know me last year was a tough one for me. But at christmas my life changed for the better. I wanted to record this on a LO. I want 2010 to be a new start.....
I used the SUGAR AND SPICE CLEAR STAMPS FAT & FUNKY ALPHA to make my titles. I stamped these onto card and then hand cut them. I find these stamps so easy to use.
Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE a bit of bling so couldnt let this LO pass without adding some. so I combined this with my other love..blooms
Hope you like x x

All of this is held together with book rings. I also added jouro spots and blocks which is held in with the book rings. I couldn't resist adding a little something to the photos, Sugar and Spice - Cute as a button stamps which needs to be stamped using Staz On ink which allowes you to stamp on non porous surfaces.

Thanks for looking,
big smiles, Nic xo
I may make it in for a couple of hours today, but with more snow forcast for this
afternoon it seems unlikely. Although with all the supplies and food in the shop
it wouldn't be a bad place to get snowed into . LOL !!!
If you're off work take this opportunity to get some great winter wonderland shots and then SCRAP them.
After all what else is there to do
whatever you do have fun and take care

The layout was created by using templates. I found them in my cupboard just before christmas-it still amazes me how I collect crafting accessories and seem to lose them in a cupboard and forget I even have them!
The title was stitched using silver thread after the paper was pierced using a stitching alphabet template. I also used a doodling template for the scrolls and then added some bling for dimension.
And finally the year was stamped on with some number stamps from sugar and spice called Happy Birthday With a Cherry on the Top.
Again a very happy new year to you all and Happy Crafting P x
