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.

DIMENSIONS

CARD OR PAPER MEASURING 2" X 10 7/8"

SCORE THE SHORT SIDE @ 1 1/4"

YOU WILL ALSO NEED TWO 3" CIRCLES 

8 STRIPS OF CARD MEASURING 3/8" 6 7/8"

FOR THE HANDLE, CARD MEASURES 1/2" X 3 1/2" 

SCORE EACH END AT 1/2" 

Please watch my youtube tutorial for full step by step instructions. You can find the link at the end of this blog post.

Thank you

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 nice touch to the card.



DIMENSIONS

CARD STOCK MEASURING 11" X 5 1/4"
SCORE THE LONG SIDE @ 5 1/2" & FOLD THE CARD IN HALF

MEASURE DOWN BOTH SIDES @ 1 1/4" & THEN MEASURE IN 3/4"

FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS AS SHOWN IN MY YOUTUBE TUTORIAL.


You can find the link to my video at the end of this blog post. If you click the description or the 'see more' on the video it will give you all the links to the Dies that i used.

I will be back again very soon with another tutorial.

Adorable Easter Bunny Gift Box



Hi Everyone,
Thank you for stopping my Blog Today. You may remember the other day i shared my new Design Team package from Alinacraft & i said keep your eyes peeled for some great projects. Well here is an adorable one!! I turned this gorgeous little gift box into an Easter treat box. Omg! how cute is it??



You can purchase the gorgeous treat box from Alinacraft by clicking HERE. Its such a beautiful little gift box & you also get 2 sentiments with it. This would make great party or wedding favours. I filled mine with mini Easter eggs. Of course you don't have to turn yours into an Easter Bunny, you could just leave it as is.



I think little Kids would love these at Easter time. To make my Bunny i used a 3/4" circle punch for the cheeks. The edges were sponged with some pink Ink & i used a Black fine tip pen to draw the Whiskers. The nose was made from a tiny heart punch & the eyes were made using Black card & a 1/2" circle punch. I used a white gel pen to draw the highlights on the eyes. Finally i used some oval dies to cut out the ears.

Please check out my Youtube tutorial for full step by step instructions. You can find the link at the end of this blog post.

I will be back again very soon with another tutorial.

KSCRAFT Design Team Project Shares



Hi Everyone,

I am back today to share with you some projects i made using my gorgeous Design Team package from KSCRAFT on Aliexpress.  A lot of the dies are based on a 'Funfair' type theme. I love them, they really are so adorable and lots of fun.
I have purchased quite a lot from KSCRAFT before and i highly recommend them. The dies cut beautifully and i only waited around 7 days for my package.





Keep your eyes peeled over the next few days as i will be sharing some more projects with you using these dies. I also have my Alina Craft DT package to share with you.
You can find the link to my Youtube Video at the end of this post. I have put all the links to these products in my Youtube video description if you would like to purchase any of them.

Until next time......

Love Ann xx

Swan Spring Card



Hi Everyone!! I am back :-)
I am so sorry i have not posted on my blog for so long. I have been so busy moving house! I hate moving with a passion but thankfully the worst is over now & i can get back to some crafting & tutorials :-) 7

Today i have a gorgeous 'Spring' card for you. It also folds down flat so you can pop it in a normal envelope. Its so pretty and really easy to make. This card would be great for all occasions & i am sure the recipient will love it.



The Swan die is from Sizzix and its so pretty! You get all the little elements with it to. You can purchase it HERE from Craftstash. I thought it would be a nice change to cut the Swan from Black card instead of white. I cut a few of the elements from some beautiful rose mirror card which is from Tonic, I am not sure if it's available to buy yet as i bought a craft kit & it was in there.

DIMENSIONS 

WHITE CARD MEASURING 10 3/4" X 4 3/4"

SCORE THE LONG SIDE @ 2 3/4" BUT MAKE SURE THE FANCY DIE CUT EDGE IS FACING TO THE RIGHT

DESIGNER PAPER MEASURING 4 5/8" x 2 1/2"

Please remember to check out my Youtube tutorial for full step by step instructions. You can find the link at the end of this blog post.

I will be be back again on Wednesday as i am now on a new Design Team! I will share all with you then.

Bye for now

Love Ann xx
