Re-order on happy birthday cards!
the 'male' ones
And the 'female' ones! sorry about blurry piccies - i was holding the camera out stretched so not to get any shadows from my arms - still havent figured out how to take good photos yet!!
Am off in a minute to take them round! hope they like them!
New dies for my cuttlebug!!!
If you buy dies I would really recommend going on the internet to buy them instead of in the shops - though it is worth shopping about for them - sometimes ebay is not the cheapest! I bought these from an american shop and even with postage it was still cheaper than buying them in a store.......cant wait to try them out!!!
Material for the curtains
i love it!! its quite sheer aswell so that when the light will shine through it it shall look really rather cool!
Also i managed to find some really good quality blackout material for the set of curtains that shall hand behind these ones - giving them different options on how much light to let through etc. Most the of the blackout material is really stiff and horrible feeling - but this one i found is like normal material and feels like it will be nice to sew with (fingers crossed that is!!) Cant remember if i put the plans/designs on here for how these will look so here is it again just in case....
We've changed the red back material to black though, and the curtains are going to be attached to the pole via circle holes...kind of like these ones..
(not my piccie - from http://www.twenga.co.uk/offer/0131811205.html )
Just waiting to hear if they want the circles to be black, white, ore silver!!!! am really looking forward to making these and seeing how they shall finish up!!
Love love love...love...love.....
After having fun with my cuttlebug die of hearts, i decided to make some love cards - havent decided on what to write on them yet but may just go for something simple like 'i love you' or something - that way they are more generic for lots of occassions.....
here they are....
Decided to do the two colour ways so that one is more feminine and one more masculine (yes it is not exactly blokey but more so than pink!) for the receivers different tastes....
I must apologise for the lighting on all these recent card photos - im still yet to figure out how best to light them when taking a photo - if you know of any clever tips, please let me know....thankyou
Some more spring cards...
This shows the card i made previously and 2 more i made within this colour spectrum.
here they are individually....
I then decided to try them out in a cool colour range - for people who arent so keen on bright colours.
Maybe these could be used for guys aswell - though are still rather feminine in design (i think its the flowers!!)
This next one is a one off as i dont have any other card in these colours - but it still works - i mean, you wold only see one at a time anyway so the receiver wouldnt know that there are other colour ways....
Someone kindly pointed out to me that mothers day here in sweden is actually the 25th of this month, so i have some more time to come up with another design to get out there in time. Only problem is that they also informed me that they dont really celebrate it here - i will just have to change that!!!!
Other news - am awaitng the arrival of the embossing powder today from england for the wedding invitations im making. Bought a heat gun yesterday and cant wait to get started. The colours that they finally decided upon are dark red, silver, and champagne cream - fingers crossed i can just to the writing tidy enough!!!!!! oh and waiting for the shop i bought the stamps off to get back in touch - they sent me the wrong hearts and so are having to order them again!!! argh!!!!! i wanted to get done by the end of this week!!!!!
Also we have go ahead on the curtains - so am off to buy the material for that today!! by the looks of things they should be really cool and look fab! will post piccies soon!
Have also got another guy lined up for a suit - eeek!!!! i find them the hardest!
Bye for now!!!!
new cards for spring events
Have next to finished the ladies denim jacket (the one i kept getting pointy boobs on!)
Am now doing some wedding invitations and starting a curtain project.
In the mean time I am making some cards for mothers day (here in sweden this sunday) and fathers day (uk about 15th june time)
Here is a quick piccie of the one ive just done for mothers day. I havent written the text in yet.
If you have any ideas of what items would look nice on a mothers day (or fathers day) card please let me know!
be in touch!
Im not going to be too active at the mo!
I am FULL of cold at the mo and so im not going to be typing much - plus im not going to have too much to type about! Am staying inbed, drinking lemsip, and trying to forget about the dripping tap that my nose has turned into, and the little hamster that has gotten stuck in my throat and keeps scratching away and tickling/inflaming it!!!
Will be back soon though.....and probably be able to write wonderful reviews on all the movies im watching in the mean time!!
OOOOoooooooo....its soo pretty!
Now all i need is to buy the die cut things to use with it! hmmmm i knew there was a con in there somewhere!! he he, no just joking, in the long run if the card thing takes off then it will prove to be very valuable to be able to make the cards quicker......
heres to the cards having to take off now!!!
(will pop piccies on soon...)
I am buzzing right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(dont say anything just incase it hears you - but i think spring is coming to sweden!)
So yesterday when I came back from giving the lady her dress before she travelled down to her mums (happy birthday by the way for today!), I walked into the court yard out back and suddenly thought - spring is coming! Now I know that flowers etc were trying to make a break for freedom back in january or something silly like that, but we've been having some pretty poo weather since then - so i really think that this could be the real thing now!
Here are some new piccies (taken on my new phone aswell - check me out!!!)
come on guys...you can make it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Talking of the new phone - funny thought the other day - cause it is a walkman phone (and with my ipod having been stolen - cheers that to who ever did it!!! you sod!!) ive been using it whilst working out - thought: i could text or ring someone right there on the treadmill!!! or even next time im in a race, i could ring someone to tell them where i am! or video myself running along!!!! ooooo this modern technology hey!!!!!
here is the phone......not taken by itself cause that would just be silly....
(piccie from www.phonereview.com)
Here is a piccie....
oooo and a very cheesy american video about it!!!
eeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (lord im sad!) i love it!!!!
Cool thing to try out for all you touch typers...
hope that worked.....
next time i do it i'll remember to put my glasses on!!
edit - i dont know why it is coming up like that, but it still works....
notes to say and point out....
