This design is going to be HUGE this Christmas. It's a peel-off tree design made up of bubble shapes (I am sure I have seen a stamp design similar). All the inners of the shape are filled with different things: glitter, flock, be-dazzled, gems, pearls, black gems, holographic circlesPrincelet is set up for special cards for grannies, girlfriend etc - would that our lives were that simple.

Loads of green and yellow - even green and pink - but I got there - green, yellow and pink (and lilac).
We spend so much time colouring in our images, this makes a fabulous change - especially if you stamp on different papers and layer them up.
I wanted to make something a bit more funky for the exam results out today.
I had a few old white aperture cards to use up, so I filled them with different garden like papers (last year's paper mania Secret Garden pad - I have use this continuously) for the backgrounds.
Stamped the tree in black Staz-on - then stamped with versamark slightly off the original and embossed with copper. Building stamping layers is great for foliage - gives real depth and texture.
Then my little owl.
Stamped spotty paper and layered with a flowered tummy - glitter eyes and pearl drops beak.
Try it for yourself

We were thinking about children's cards.
I don't know - I pride myself that I craft by hand - if you buy a paper cut that I have made It has been cut by hand. Yes - traced - and cut all by myself. Much as I am in awe of the cricket shapes and capabilities - it's kind of sad that technology is getting in the way so much these days.
Me - can't afford one - really can't. Just don't earn the sort of money from my cards that I could invest that much. And anyway - one of my selling points is that I do it all by hand - it is clever though.

My first 'real book'.
I am so chuffed with it!
Sets of pages stitched together then held in the book cover with ribbons. It is A5 size so a 12" scrapbook page does the outside cover and lines the inner side.
It is lovely to have nice books to keep notes in - it's my campaign to give everyone pretty stationary
