Embossed strips #343

marchclubToday’s project has been created ready for the make & take at craft club this Friday.  It’s a fun way to play around with your embossing folders and is nice and quick to make.  Cut strips of card and emboss with a variety of different folders (if you only have a couple why not alternate the designs).marchclub2

Then finish with some ribbon and a peel-off greeting and border for a quick and easy card.

The most difficult thing about this card is taking a good photo of it!

have fun playing with your folders and if you are local, please do come and join us at craft club this Friday evening 6.15-8.30pm at the Francis rooms next to Connaught hall in Attleborough.  It’s £3.50 to attend, bring something to craft with you and join in for a laugh and a cuppa.  If you want to join the make & take it’s just £2.50 to come and play!

happy crafting




Christmas Tree Wedge Box #278

Memory Box Dies

Sorry guys, I missed posting yesterday as I was feeling a bit under the weather when I got home and so didn’t switch on my laptop.  So I am back today with the last of the wedge boxes.  Today’s box has a backing paper base and has been topped with designs cut with Memory Box Dies.  The top is a Precious Snowflake Die and the bottom is the Pine Border Die.  It’s a nice contrast to have the die cuts in white and the background that lovely deep Christmassy Green.

I hope you have liked the boxes this week.  The ladies at the workshop on Monday certainly enjoyed making them.  Just look at the wide range they all created!


Back tomorrow with some more Christmas ideas

happy crafting



Sparkling Red Wedge Box #276


I have used the same template, but with larger card today.  I’ve used a piece of card that is A5 in size to give a wider box.

I started by scoring my template and then running it through my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder.  If you have a small machine and folder, just emboss one side at a time, if you have a large machine and folder, you can do it in just one step. (more…)

Candle Gift Box #274

wedge boxI’m still on light duties this week fitting in a bit of time off with my hubby around essential business jobs – so my blog projects are all quick and simple designs for a few days.

I ran a workshop this morning for 19 enthusiastic ladies and taught them how to make wedge shape gift boxes.  They got to choose from a range of different decorating styles and throughout the week I will be showing you the samples I made to show each technique. (more…)

Elegant Baby Cards #264

Baby Boy Card

You will detect a bit of a theme this week.  I have completely sold out of baby cards in the shop , so time to make some new ones.  I thought I would put together a couple of new baby designs that I could easily adapt for boy, girl or neutral and could create to order.  This is the first design I came up with.  I like the simplicity of this design, and you can recreate it with whatever embossing folders you have in your collection, and whatever alphabet dies you have too.

Elegant Blues #246


Back to simple elegant today.  The background of my card has been embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder – a damask type pattern.

I’ve used two shades of blue Bazzil cardstock to cut out my mouns from a Spellbinders Labels set.Aug29a (more…)
