Great fun was had by the whole family and she ate her body weight in strawberries and raspberries. You can find all the info HERE on how i made the LO and a complete list of materials.

I felt the urge

So after a day of walking, gardening, and basically being non stop from 8am until 6.30pm i felt the urge to go and purge myself in the craft room for a bit. And here is a sneak peak of a layout i created. And its getting to the point were i cant find the desk so i feel a clean up on the horizon. I remember the days long ago when i used to have nothing on the table except the project under construction and then i used to tidy away everything ready fresh for the next one. Ha, oh i wish those days would return, lol TFL Sarah

Its a boy

This week I am playing around with baby cards as a very old friend has just had a much wanted baby boy after many years of heart ache. I have made lots of cards and I am still undecided which to send as I want it to be very special for them. Here is one of my cards, made for CBN, with some simple instructions. Materials • A4 cardstock • Patterned paper (G45:Little Darlings) • Ink (SU) • Ribbon (SU) • Bakers twine (SU) • Buttons • Embellishments: G45 stickers Instructions Template I began by making myself a template. I hand drew a onesie shape out roughly, then refined the lines. Once I was happy with the shape, I scanned it, enlarged it and printed it out twice onto a piece of A4 card. I have attached one of then. Save, enlarge, print. I cut out the shapes. I covered the back piece in spotty paper. I added a spotty paper to the bottom half of the front piece and a vintage text/ image piece to the top half. I inked all the edges. To decorate I added bakers twill, ribbon, buttons and stickers to the front. I added a decorative strip to the back and another sticker. Once happy with the front and back onesies, add glue above the line area on the template. Stick them together to finish. And there you go, a very quick and easy baby card that looks adorable.
