Re-order on happy birthday cards!

Looks like im getting in demand (well starting to anyways!) !!! have had another request for some more 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!!!

Eeeekk!!! the new dies i ordered off ebay arrived this morning....


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 went and bought the material yesterday for the curtains i am making for someone....


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..

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

(from the movie the heartbreak kid????? - fab movie)

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...

Hello again - ive been having greay fun yesterday making up loads of new cards.  I was really taken by the design of the previous card i popped on here, so decided to do the same thing but in different colours (thanks to all the card stock ive bought recently!!) Here are some piccies of what i made......


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!!!!
