Easter Peek-a-boo

Hello everyone, today I am here to share with you how I made this fun little card which I made to send tto someone special this Easter.

Products Used
Leaf Die

The addition of acetate to the card is great for creating a floating feeling to greetings or stamped image.

First of all I took an A6 card blank where the centre is marked at 10.5 cms.  I then placed the ruler at the edge of the card and marked at 15 and 19.5 cms and then cut down these two lines.  I discarded the centre section.

On the inside of the card I added some double sided tape and then cut a piece of acetate to the same size of the card and added it to the tape.  

I added the small piece of card to the bottom of the acetate for support.  This is the 'new'card blank for you to create with!

I used the Bella! Rustic Charm papers as I thought the pastel colours were perfect for Easter.  I cut the oval shape from the paper to create a topper and placed this on top of layers of the paper.  The glitter paper from the small paper pack was used along the bottom section.

To create the vellum flowers on the top of the card I simply cut two scallop circles and folded each one twice so I could find the centre.

I cut out one of the scallops so it nearly goes through the middle.  I then left two of the scallops and then cut down the next one.  I repeated this around the whole of the circle.

This is what you should be left with.  I then lightly scrunched each one and added it to the top of the card with a Bella! floral in centre.

I added 'Happy Easter' using the Fundamentals Alpha Stickers which finished my card off!
Naturally this card design can be made for all sorts of occasions, so hopefully you are inspired to get creating!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by

Happy Birthday Fusion Style!

Hello everyone, 
I am still in birthday mode today and am here to share with you three little birthday cards I made. 

First up is a 21st birthday card made using the black and white 2015 Bella! Fusion and some of the glitter Kraftastic.

Products Used

I used some of the Kraftastic papers to add some stars and glitter to it.  The little champagne bottle is from the Bella! Wedding wood veneer pack and the glittery '21' stickers fits perfectly on the label.


So often I find masculine cards quite difficult to create but these new colours and patterns in the fusion range are just perfect.  For the next card I choose to use the blue papers and made a cut out in the centre.  Again I have used the Kraftastic papers to add some sparkle!

Products Used

The last card brings in Spring and the yellow colour is just so fresh.  I love the little polka dots and the floral patterns.  I have added some of the candy card stock to add some sparkle to this card.

Hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by

Glittery Party Bags

Today I am carrying on with my birthday theme from the other day and sharing with you some 'party bags' I made using Ruby Rock-it's featured products this month which are Bella! Kraftastic and Bella! Fusion.  

And they mixed together beautifully!

Products Used

I really love the glitter which is seperated by the white patterns and kraft cardstock.  The stars are super vibrant and just shine brightly!  These are just the pink version so do make sure you check out the other colours.

And the Kraftastic stickers all laced in glitter will just make you go weak at the knees!

Mixing in the Bella! Fusion really breaks up the glitter and at the same time shines brightly itself with the strong patterns popping off the white background.

I added a strip of the Kraftastic paper to the top of the bag and then cut some strips of the Fusion paper. Then I cut some triangles into the strips and added them to the bag and cover the top section with a doily cut from the papers.  I jazzed up the bag with some stars cut from the paper too!

Here is a better look at three of the bags 

These went down a treat with the party guest as they left the party

Have a great day

Pink Sparkling Birthday!

Hello!  Today there I have a mass of pretty pinks to show off an awesome cake my daughter and her friend made and decorated all by themselves.
They spent the whole afternoon creating this masterpiece so needless to say the camera came out and I took the photo  ...... to scrap!

These are the reasons why I scrapbook, to record the milestones my little people make and these come daily and when I least expect it they blow me away with their ever growing talents.

The new RRBF Bella! Kraftastic Paperz are simply sparkling!  
There are many awesome patterns on the on the kraft card which are all glittered and will bring a sparkle to any project.  They are fabby for the fussy cutters among us too ... woot woot!!

Also there are some brilliant Kraftastic Stickers too which coordinate beautifully!
I mixed the Kraftastic Paperz with the New Bella! Fusion Paperz ... Magic!

So have you recently recorded a special event or milestone?  Then why not print out that picture and get creating some memories to keep forever.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by

Mother's Day Gift Box

So Spring is here and in the UK we will be celebrating Mother's Day on the 15th March so I thought I would show you how I made this little gift box from Ruby Rock-It's new Fusion papers.

Products Used

 I decided to use the 12 x 12 yellow flourish paper. With the flourish side facing up, folded it in half, then open it up and fold it in half the other way.

With the dot side facing up fold the paper in half diagonally at the four corners.  Push in the sides to create a triangle using the folds you have created.

Fold the left side of the triangle down until it meets with bottom edge, then unfold

Fold the top corner on the left hand side across till the tip matches the edge of the fold just made.  Fold this down and then repeat on the right side.

Once folded tuck one of the sides into the pocket on the other one.  Turn the whole thing over and repeat the above step.

Fold up the bottom 'triangle' and then unfold again.

Gently open the box.  A slight push on the bottom will help the box to go into shape.

And there you have the box!  All that needs to be done is to decorate it.

I used some of the Oriental Chic embellishements along with some hand made flowers in Bella! Vellum and some strips of paper from the fusion paperz.

This little gift box will be filled with little treats for a special mum or it could even be used as a great little Easter basket for little people to collect the Easter Bunny's eggs.

If you have a go I would love to see what you create,

Lovin' Wedding Layout

Hello!  Today I am here to share with you a layout that I made using Ruby Rock-It's True Love papers.
The shimmery black and white/creamy papers complemented this photo of my parents on there wedding day back in 1964.

Products Used

I really like the lace effects on the papers which set my mum's dress of beautifully.

I choose to keep my title simple and add a few subtitles which I did using the wood veneer and 3D stickers.  They help to make phrase pop off the layout.

The little phrases in the new fundamentals alpha stickers are just superb!  When you just need little snippets to fill in spaces these are awesome!  
With lots of different colour ways to choose from the silver was perfect with the layout.

So there is my 'True Love' layout
