Favourite Quotes Box

Made this little box for the PTI Blog Hop. Unfortunately had no internet connection last night so I didn't get to participate. I love quotes and want to make cards with all my favourite quotes. My idea is to make ATC sized cards so this box is 3"x4".

Raspberry Suite Challenge #12

Got Lauren's new 'Pretty Petal Pocket' template from PTI and couldn't wait to try it out. So I used the colour challenge for some inspiration and had some fun. Made the small version of the template.

Crimped Envelope Pocket Card CPCM-NTYW14

I recently joined the forum at CPCM and this is the first challenge I participated in. The tutorial for the altered envelopes can be found here. This was really easy to do and I will be making a lot more of these.

Baby gift

Made this ensemble for my sister who is in hospital as I type this post. She has been induced this morning and we are awaiting the arrival of little Matthew. I used the Men of Life stamp set and the wonderful inspiration from Nicole Heady. In this post she gives instructions and a download for the baby album. In this post you can find the instructions for the card and little boat gift tag.

PTI Princesses Challenge #5

I have been neglecting my blog lately and missed challenge #4 completely. For challenge #5 we had to:
1.make something using a colour we seldom use,
2.use inking
3. then give our project to someone.
I so seldom use purples/lilacs so that was my starting point. It will be my SIL's birthday on Monday so I used Lauren's 'Ready, set wrap' template to make the gift box. I then made a little gift card envelope for the gift card. I will place the gift card together with some chocolates in the gift box.
I used Lavender Moon and Plum Pudding CS, inks and Bitty Dot Basics.
