some cards to share

it's my mum's birthday on tuesday and then mothers day next sunday and so i was on a mission today to make cards for both occasions. here is what i came up with:-

this is the birthday card, i wish i could remember where i got the cute cupcake paper from, i love it!! the large cupcake in the centre is made from a scrapbuggy die, it's one of my favourites and i crafted this from bazzill bling. some rhinestones give it a little extra pizzazz! of course, everything is distressed at the edges with my trusty vintage photo distress ink from tim holtz.

this her mothers day card. i took inspiration for this from the embellished doily project that i completed last year. i still have some left over martha stewart doilies, i love them! i used paper from the girls paperie and added a gliiter tag from crate paper and topped this with some stampin up flowers and a beautiful butterfly. the final touch is a jenni bowlin label stickers with 'mum' phrase to complete the look.

i am a little obsessed by the idea of heavily layering everything at the moment, i really do love the mix of items that can be used during this process and the depth of the end result. i can see myself using this a lot in future projects.

craft fair preparation

jen and i are bust preparing for mg live at silverstone in june. this is only the second show we have attended and we are going to be there for 3 days!

this is the first of the items i am preparing for sale, a cute "it's a dog's life" mini album. i have purposely left the front blank, so that this can be personalised on the day. i might add something else to the cover yet as i think it looks a little blank?

watch out for more soon!
