Party Dress

Our family have a few Birthdays in December so I thought I would have a break from Christmas cards and share one of the Birthday cards I have created.

I have used my Crafter's Companion  Sugar and Spice CD to make this girly card, there are lots of pretty toppers and papers on this CD.


I printed the topper twice and cut out the image so that I could layer it up on a scalloped circle and add some dimension with foam pads.  The sentiment is also from the CD, I have just added some pearls from my stash.

Hooray it's your Birthday

This is another card that I have created with the latest Julie Loves Creativity Box.


I used a hexagon topper so I decided to cut two of the papers into hexagon shapes as well.  I backed everything with purple card stock and cut the name from one of the papers.  The large stars are from the die cuts and I punched the small star.


I also decorated the inside of the card.

Christmas Baubles

I am Guest Designer for Craftwork Cards this month and this project is being shared over on the Craftwork Cards and Friends Official Facebook Group, we are having a Christmas Advent event - an inspiration project will be shared every day.  If you are not a member pop over and join, there is lots of fabulous inspiration and competitions along with special offers and information about new launches - it's such a friendly group.

I used papers from Christmas Post and Peppermint Forest collections to create my Christmas Baubles.


I can remember making these as a child, they are quite easy.  I used a 2" punch to create 20 circles from a variety of different papers.


You just fold the edges to form a triangle and glue them all together.  I always attach pearls at the corners just to finish them nicely.
