Rolled flowers and card

Hi all,well needed to make a birthday card and decided to combine it with a challenge over on Docrafts and one of the requirements was to include a handmade flower.Making flowers is a weakness of mine though so my trusty cricut came to my rescue and and svg files from this amazing blog.Had a play and made these three
and i used the kraft card flower on the card below.

Used basic grey 'green at heart' papers,kraft and core card,scallop circle nesties,basic grey flower stamp and distress ink 'seedless preserves',added some pearls from stash onto flourishes cut from a marianne die.
Off to add this to the challenge,have a good day,x

70th Birthday Pressies

Hello,expect you are all amazed at two posts in a short space of time.....lol.Dont know how you all manage to blog daily and craft,time seems to be very elusive in this house! Well had a mad panic last night as realised i hadnt made the  presents for a friend who was turning 70 today, so had a craft session last night when i would rather have been snoozing.......lol
I decorated a bag which i had recieved in a swop from Teresa to match the bird house which i adapted from a tutorial which i will try and link later.Inside the bird house is two mini jars of her fave marmalade.

Made a matching card using a Hero Arts stamp,ribbon,and pearls from stash,actually like the card too!

and finally on the bird theme made another of my mad robins keyrings

and i am pleased to say that she loved them which is always a relief. Right off to get my pjs on and do a bit of blog hopping as my cold appears to be staying with me this week,will be glad when it goes.
Happy crafting all,x

Mini album finally finished :)

Hi all,well this is a project i started at the last Bristol craft meet and was awaiting some finishing touches.Have decided to use it as a photo album of this year and aim to use my camera more and not just for taking pictures for here or my docrafts gallery.
front cover


The album is double sided and has pockets for tags and loads of mat for photos so i have no excuse not to use it.
I used First Edition Isabelle paperpack for all the mats,tabs and even on the butterflies.

The butterflies are from my favourite punch (EK success butterfly layering punch) and you have the option of cutting out 3 butterflies which you can use on your own or layer up.

Tags for inside were cut out on my cricut and i then added tabs which were made with the stampin up tag punch which i nabbed off sue......lol. Its on the top of my wish list at the moment along with a hundred other items i would love!
Well i have finished it just in time as tomorrow i am off to this months meet......lol
Off to catch up on your blogs and thanks for taking the time to visit me,x
