Miranda and Mo are Here New Kraftyhands CD

Watch Create and Craft to see more January 17th at 9.00am and 4.00pm

This is such a fun frame to make, complete with stand that is easy to make and works properly. As soon as I saw this pink frame I knew the photo to place in it...........Me and Graham on our wedding day about to get into our car we were showered in this picture.

Miranda and Mo Cherry Jam

This is an 8 x 8 card, my favourite size of card to make at the moment. The label tag at the side opens out to show a scrummy recipe for Cherry Jam (including some brand if you wish) I thought it would make a great card to cheer someone up who is a bit poorly, even better if given with some of the cherry jam.

Miranda and Mo

Just love the cherry backing paper on this card. Used paper doilies on top left and right hand corners.
Cherries and jam  enchanced with glossy accents to look extra sticky.

Miranda and Mo are Here

Lovely shaped card made with new CD. Just cut out the double sided card, shaded round white area with blue pan pastel,  added flowers and leaves and bakers twine at top. Eazy peazy card, for when you are in a hurry.

Kraftyhands Challenge Card

This is my Kraftyhands Challenge card for New Beginnings.

This card is very blue. I used Crafters Companion. Printed out 'Baby Boy' in  suitable font with Word. I use Word a lot for sentments if I cannot find anything suitable. The edges are softened with pan pastles.

Gatefold Card

This was such an easy card to make. The colours are blue and pale yellow. The lily is traditional for sympathy cards but the borders and stripped paper make it very elegant.

Beautiful Colours

The colours of this card are beautiful. Very different to the usual white washed out commercial cards on offer.

Sympathy Cards

This is one of three cards I am going to show. It is such a difficult subject and when I have to make a card for my own use or  I am commisioned to make one they are always a worry that you get the right sentiment and tone. This CD certainly fits the bill. The colours are beautful, not morbid or drab and the verses fit what you want to say.
