Design Team Projects :-)

Hi Everyone!!
Thank you for popping over to my Blog today :-) I am back with some of my Design Team projects. I really wanted to come on and share them with you. I hope you enjoy them and also gain some inspiration from them. Sometimes we all need inspiration as at times your mind just seems to go blank! I hate it when that happens.

I love this card i created!! How beautiful is it??? I also created a gorgeous box for it as i did not want to risk squashing it in an envelope. I created this for a special Friend and i am sure she will love it :-)
The dies i used are all from Alinacraft, i will put all the links below in case you would like to pop over to Alinas shop and purchase them.
The flowers, sentiment and ephemera are all from my crafty stash. The background paper is from a Maggie Holmes paper pad i had in my stash. I have never really used it and its so pretty. I am trying to make a point of using my crafty stash!

I also made a really sweet Pizza Box using another of Alinacutles …

Easy Memory Dex Box Tutorial

Hi Crafters!
I am back with another tutorial! You may remember last week i told you that i wanted to start making memory dex cards. I have been meaning to start them but just never seen to get time. When i got my latest DT package from Alinacutle that give me the push to start them as there was a really cool Memory Dex Die set in it. I shared it with you all in my last you tube video.

I began looking online for a memory dex storage system but i found they were so expensive! Then i had the idea to make my own. I am so pleased with it & because i have made it from chipboard its super strong! The 2 runners are made from paper straws! How cool is that?? I just coloured mine in with a permanent metallic marker. Its a fantastic box and i am sure you will agree with me if you make one :-)

These are also my first ever memory dex cards! I created them using 2 new dies from Alinacutle. The gorgeous Black Swan Die & also the adorable little Asian Girl Die As i said before the memory dex…

Gorgeous Bird Cage Ideal for Mothers Day

Hi Crafters

Thank you for stopping by my Blog Today. As Its Mothers day on Sunday 31st, i thought i would share this gorgeous Bird Cage that i made. Its very easy to do and its just so pretty. I really think this would be a perfect Mothers Day gift.

For both of my Bird Cages i used a beautiful First Addiction Paper pad called Floral Pavilion. Its is stunning and i just love the colours and the designs. Sometimes i look at it and think i don't want to cut it up haha, But that is why we buy it, to use it.  I also used 2 punches i have in my stash, you can find the links for them HERE
I love these punches and i have quite a few. They punch so well and another thing i love is the price! Compared to some punches on the market these are very reasonable.








Gorgeous Baby Onesie Card

Hi Crafters,

Today i have the most adorable Onesie card for you. Its so easy to make and you don't need a die either. I am quite proud of this as in all the years i have been blogging & making tutorials, i have never done a Baby card/project!! I think i just have never had the need to make any. What inspired me to have a go at this project was some of the gorgeous new Dies AlinaCraft had sent me in my latest Design Team package. It is the beautiful Angel wings and the little Baby die.

For the Pink card i used the Angel wings on the inside and i think it makes a beautiful surprise when you open the card. I cut the little Baby's Dress out of some cute gingham card stock & she also has a cute little matching headband.

For the Blue Baby Boy card i put the Angel wings on the outside of the card & cut the Dress out of Blue card. Inside i used a gorgeous Pram Die that again was from my AlinaCraft Design Team package. Its such i cute little Die & i think it adds a nic…
