Box Of Roses

Hi Guys,

Hope you're all well and had a great week!

I'm Still playing with my Silhouette and when I saw this file in the Silhouette on-line store I fell in love!

So here's my Box Of Roses...

It was quite easy to put together with the help of the written instructions lol!

It's just like a box in a card and it can fold down for posting! 

The file also came with a tag, a heart and a Valentine sentiment but I tied some ribbon and twine around the box and to finish off I also tied a Silver love heart!

So if hubby won't give me a dozen of roses, I can make and give them to myself roflol!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Till next time, take care and keep smiling,

Scrapbook Boutique January Challenge

Hi Guys,

I'm here to show you a card I created for the Scrapbook Boutique January Challenge and what a simply gorgeous inspiration pic to use, it's yummmmmmm and it's gorgeous lol!

So here's the inspiration pic:


and here's what I created:

I've had this shell file to cut on the Silhouette for a few weeks and when I saw the inspiration pic and I knew I had to use the file lol!

I cut out the card shell and the smaller shells and the banner using my Silhouette Cameo using different files from the Sil store and I stamped my Birthday greeting using AnnaBelle Stamps 'Designer Flowers' Stamp set, tied some White ribbon and twine around the top of the card with a hanging shell and finished off using some white Pearls also from AnnaBelle Stamps!

A very easy card to create, it all came together so easily lol!

Go and check out the other entries and the design teams creations, just stunning!!!

A Kaisercraft Challenge

Hi Guys,

'Happy New Year'!

I hope you're Christmas and New Year celebrations were wonderful!

I'm a regular visitor to the Kaisercraft blog and when they posted THIS challenge I wanted to play along!

You also needed to include in your creation the set colours, a stamp of your choice and some flower blooms!

Here's the gorgeous colours:

and here's what I created:

I made this envelope pouch/bag using my Silhouette Cameo and using THIS file from the Silhouette store using Kraft Cardstock and the yummy XO collection from Kaisercraft(papers and collectables)and some Fairy Floss blooms also by Kaisercraft, some Black ribbon and to finish off I used some KC rhinestones in Blue Grey(it looks like a very soft mint colour too me lol)but doesn't show well in the picture!

I used my Stampin' Up 'French Flair' background stamp and stamped the image in Versamark!

Here's a close up of my front panel:

I tried to make it look like the sweet little birds are placing the loveheart there lol!  I'm going to place a love letter to hubby in the envelope for Valentine's day lol!

Father's Day Cards

Hi Guys,

I hope you're all well and everything in your part of the world is going great for you!

Once again I've been playing with my Silhouette Cameo making some very quick and easy cards for Father's Day with help from my boys using files from the Silhouette on-line store!

Here's the cards:

The card on the left was from my 18 year old and the one on the right was from my 9 year old!  They choose the files and colour cardstock, I can't believe they worked together choosing the same colours lol!

Both these cards took 10 mins to whip up, quick and easy lol! Sorry it's not the best pic, I uploaded it from my phone, my camera is having hissy fits roflol!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Till next time,

Altered Frame

Hi Guys,

I hope you're all well!

I've been working on an altered frame by Kaisercraft using the gorgeous new Mix and Match collection, this has to be my favourite release by Kaisecraft lol!

I took inspiration for my frame from THIS gorgeous frame created by Adriana Bolzon on the Kaisercraft Blog!

I made the rolled roses using dies from my favourite things, the swirl leaves and black sentiment I cut using my cameo, bling(sprinkles)is from AnnaBelle Stamps and the papers, butterfly embellishments, doilies and doily borders are from the Mix and Match collection by Kaisercraft as is the frame lol, which I have painted white!

I was quite happy with the way it turned out lol!

Might try and make some Christmas cards with the left over papers, love the colours and designs!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Till next time,
