Slide Card

My gorgeous friend Mel recently made some of these super cute slide cards. They use a strip of plastic from a shopping bag as the slide cool is that. I thought I'd give it a go and here is the card I made. Again my photos are very ordinary but the card has been given to my sister and brother in law for their 28th wedding anniversary so I can't retake the photo now. These are quite cool to make.

Purse Bag for Treats

First of all, apologies for my grainy photo but I wanted to share these cute little bags with you. This is an old tutorial of the very talented Makeesha Byl's. Keesh uses ribbon as her handles, however I've used whisper white card stock with a strip of matching DSP. These are perfect for little treats and the front panel could be adapted to a range of shapes, in fact I'm going to try and make another using the scallop circle soon. These are really simple to make and I'm sure I'll make plenty more in the future.

One Sheet Wonder - Vintage Vogue

It's been a while since I did a One Sheet Wonder. For those unfamiliar with the term, it is where you take a piece of A4 and stamp it up or DSP and cut into various pieces usually to a template to create several cards. I can across Linda Craven's blog recently and loved the One Sheet Wonder she made using the Vintage Vogue stamp set. I have used slightly different colours than Linda using Purely pomegranate, Old Olive, Whisper White and Pretty in Pink. I took a few quick pics before I used one of the cards for a girlfriends birthday.

So first up is the template I followed from Linda's blog.

And here is my piece of paper all stamped up

And a couple of pics of my cards all completed

the wind kept blowing them over....
