double trouble

Hello from a miserable Glasgow.
We've had a lovely weekend weather wise but alas, today it's back to dull, grey skies.  The weatherman definitely doesn't like us.  We live in hope though :)

Anyway I'm showcasing another baby make from my recent allocation form
A cute as a button little wall hanging



Products used:
Dotty Clouds 5x7 embossing folder
buttons, beads and wire from me stash

I have fallen in love with this collection.  It's just so sweet and pretty.  It's great too that it's not all pinks and blues.  So if you don't know the sex of the baby you can still make something gorgeous.

Thanks for popping in.  Have a good old crafty day

a new baby

Hiya Crafty Buddies 

I did a few samples a couple of weeks ago for one of Crafters Companion shows on Hochanda.  The whole programme was dedicated to Sara's Little Angels Signature collection.

Have you seen it?  A full range of gorgeous bits all co-ordinated to make your new baby cards


For this card I used 12x12 paper pad and The Friendly Elephant die.
How cute is that wee elephant? 
We were asked to only use the collection as far as possible. So once I had constructed bow card I only added a few pearls and the sentiments which I printed off from the pc.

Thanks for popping in

Big Girls Bloomers

Hi Everyone
I'm trying my best to keep my promise to blog a bit more.  Sometimes by the time I've uploaded to instagram, pinterest and facebook I am all typed out and have quite literally run out of steam
Anyway, here's one I've just finished.  The bried was for a 'fun card' so I opted for


I coloured her up using Spectrum Noir Markers.  (I'll list them below)
Papers are from Poundland.  Have you noticed they are stocking some a4 pads now?  Not all of them are that nice but I always have a quick look now just incase.
A selection of dies and a sentiment or two finished it off
colours used: BT5 BT8 BT9  GT1 GT3   EB4 EB5 EB7  FS1 FS4 FS6

So, I'm off now to watch a bit of telly whilst I colour up another image or two,
Thanks for popping in.
Happy Crafting

Birthday Bottle

Hello

It's sneaky peek time :)
Coming your way very soon are these fabulous foil transfers from Crafters Companion
Sara showed them  off  over on HSN already and they went down a storm

Now, I am in no way an expert in this field (I wasted too many ahem quite a few) but I got there in the end.

I thought they would look good on this bottle, and they do. Pic doesn't do it justice really.

Two coats of chalk paint, then the foils and a coat of spray varnish was all I did to this apart from adding the ribbons and flowers at the end.





I absolutely love how this turned out.  So when they finally hit the store I'll be adding them to my basket and having a wee bit of a home decor crafty day or two, maybe even three as some of my teamies have given me some fabulous inspiration for them.

Thanks for popping in. Have a good old crafty day
Anne
