Mothers Day Cards

I was asked by Craftwise magazine to submit some Mothers Day and Fathers Day cards for their next issue.. I asked the crafty ladies of the RSA group to submit cards to me as well and then sent them off to Craftwise. I hope they publish them all - they were all stunning and I think the editor would be hard pressed to chose only a few!

Here are the cards I made for the submission:

I didn't make any Father's Day cards for two reasons - I ran out of time and I'm not very good at men's cards for some reason.. too fond of bling I think lol! Maybe I'll find some time over the coming long weekends to play and manage to make a few male themed cards.

Anyway till next time, happy crafting!

I'm Back... at last!

Hi Everyone,
I'm back at last after a looooong time away from the blog.
I do envy those bloggers who find the time to create and post everyday...
Anyhoo, I've got a few pics of some things I've created lately as well as a link to a youtube video of the mini album page I made for the Graphic 45 Ladies Diary swap.

This was a card I made for a baby shower.. I used lots of die cuts for a frilly feminine feel.

This is a Pandora's Box... you can put little trinkets in it or gift it as a gift. The top pic shows it open and the bottom one closed with it's lid on. It's fairly simple to make, just time consuming.
I've been making a lot of intricate folded cards and off the page type projects - albums and mini books.  One of them was for an overseas swap group and I had to use G45 A Ladies Diary paper.
The link to view the video of my page and another participants page is:
and let me know what you think.
I did another G45 mini album swap in November - this time using the Olde Curiosity Shoppe papers. I'll take photo's and upload them next time.
Till next time, keep it crafty!
