Birthday Baggie

It's a friend's birthday next weekend so I've been busy making her a card and gift bag.  I'll share the card in a day or two, but today I've got the gift bag to show you.

I've made a bag-in-a-box with double-sided pink papers and lace for the handles.  I'm planning to wrap her pressies in pink tissue and pop them inside with the tissue peeking out.

I made a scalloped base using a Lawn Fawn stitched die, and made some little reinforcers for the lace handles with the scraps.  The ribbon is a scrap I've had for years, but it seemed to match all the colours of the papers, so it's finally found a home.





Just so that you can see how deep it is, I've taken a pic of the view from the side:

A Bite of Strawberry

I'm a guest designer at Sketch Saturday this month, and today's sketch just happens to be one of my favourites so it wasn't hard for me to enjoy this one.

I've used a cute little critter from A Day For Daisies, but I naively didn't fully consider that there's a whole lotta fur on this little guy!  I guess it allowed me some practice of colouring fur!

And I can never have too much practice!

Mind you, even the strawberry was a challenge and I can't blame that on fur (unless you're eating it with the clotted cream I bought at Christmas for the mince pies, and then promptly forgot about!)

Anyhoo, I hope you like him and please do pop over to Sketch Saturday to join in this week.



Here's the sketch I followed:

Ellie Loves Phant

It's a CAS creation from me today featuring my newest Stamping Bella acquisition, Ellie Love Phant. I've also used the sentiment from the set (yup, it's so unlike me to use a stamped sentiment at all, let alone the matching one!)  I love these STUFFIES!

Close your eyes

It's another 'fussy' card today, which is for the challenge at In The Pink where the theme is "With Love"; perfect for the romantics amongst us in the lead up to Valentines.

In reality my card is actually for some friends' engagement rather than valentines, but the engagement theme has still enabled me be all romantic with lots of pearls, flowers and sparkly organza ribbon.

I was rather pleased with the end result; it was one of those 'warm glow' cards (you know the kind I mean!!!) and I didn't really want to give it away.  :0)

There's no shell like home

Today's card is my one of the few 'fussy' cards I've made so far this year. I must admit that I'm a bit of a convert when it comes to the CAS card styles, and they are very much growing on me, but I do still like the effort that goes into creating an embellished card and I think it really sets them apart from the flat mass produced cards you can find in most shops.  This layout is one of my favourites, with the two papers, ribbon, a double bow, and two little arrays of blooms in opposite corners. Plus of course, some pearls!

This project is to jointly support the challenge at As You Like It Challenge and Sugar Bowl Challenges which both start today.

Bunny Love

I've had this image coloured for a while but not made it into a card, so I've decided to rectify that with a CAS design in pink and green.  I'm not really keen on green, but it seems to fit the natural colours of the image.

Patsy - Good Luck

This is the final sample of my set of 4 for Crafty Sentiment Designs, and this one is 'Dressing Up' with one of the sentiments from the same set.  I love the bright reds on this one, and one of my favourite layouts too.




And here's a close up of her when she was on the TV last Friday with Suzette!!!  :0)

Patsy - Dressing Up

Today I'm sharing my second card featuring the new release at Crafty Sentiment Designs available from Hochanda TV.  This one's called Dressing Up and includes the sentiment.




And here is my card on TV from a screenshot I took during Suzette's show yesterday.  You were fab Suzette!!!  I loved the shows and it was fabulous to see both you and our cards on the screen.

Patsy - I Love You

I'm quite excited today because my lovely As You Like It teamie, Suzette, who also happens to be one of the artists and owners of Crafty Sentiment Designs, has some new images out today, and I've been lucky enough to have been allowed to play with some of them ahead of the release.  Not only that, she's demonstrating her new images on TV today. so if you're near a TV or have access to the tinterweb take a peek at Hochanda TV at 10am, 1pm or 5pm today!  I'm hoping one of my cards might even be on TV!!

I'll post some samples over the next few days, but today's card uses a stamp and sentiment set called Dreams, featuring a little girl (Patsy) and her puppy (Gizmo).




Update!!! ... Here's a screenshot of my card on TV earlier today *big grin*...
