My First TP Mini

Well i kept seeing on blogs and such like people were making mini albums from empty toilet rolls - you know the cardboard inner bit that you throw away - so i decided that i would have a go - this is my first attempt - i am well pleased with myself - i think  it is a lovely little album - i just need to get some photos in it and then i can decide who to give it to.

I hope you like the album and leave me a comment if you want to know anything Kym xx

Some more Dreasel Cards

I made some more Dreasel cards which as you know are easel cards with drawers - the ladies that received these cards loved them and i really loved making them.

There is only one problem with all these photos - i am so busy looking at the cards that i forgot about the messy craft room that you can see - lol lol.

Cyprus Paperbag Mini Album

This is the album i made for my wonderful Sister-in-Law - Dor lived in cyprus for about 5 years but she is now back home in the UK - She really does miss it at times so i made this album for her so she can visually enjoy her memories - it was very stuffed when i had finished - i made lots of photo mats and tags and pockets it was such a pleasure to make.

I hope you enjoy this album as much as i did making it Kym xx

Monthly Card Socials

A few of us get together once a month to chat drink tea and giggle a lot - sometimes we even make things - lol - these are some photos of the ladies enjoying themselves at the november 2011 Card Social.

They are an incredibly talented bunch of ladies and they are all my very good friends - we have been getting together for quite a few years - its great fun i have to say.

40th Birthday Paperbag Mini Album

This is the paperbag mini that i made for my sisters 40th birthday in 2011. I have to say i am totally addicted to making these mini albums - i have a few more lined up for the next few months - i will probably end up boring you all with them - I was going to make it a purely black & white album but some of the photos were so nice i ended up doing colored photos as well - I was really pleased with the album when it was finished and my sister loved it.

I hope you like viewing my cards and albums - perhaps they might inspire you - that would be great to think that i might inspire someone to craft.

A Few Cards

It has been a long time since i did any blogging - i kinda forgot that i was blogging - i was doing too many other things - but over the last week or so i have finally got round to making some cards so i thought i would share them on my blog.

These 2 cards were inspired by a card on Jak Heaths site - i am not very good at coloring so i cheated a little - i purchased 2 sheets from CUP that were done by Lisa Baglietto and i cut 1 image from the sheet and used it as you would a digi image - they dont look to bad huh.

This is a Teddy Bea card - i bought the card kit from Aimee Ashers site but it is a Kizzy Designs card kit - you can make these up just as you print them off or you can add your own extra embellies - that is what i did with this card - i put some lace up the side and i backed the 2 panels with card then i used pearls and some flowers which i got from Wild Orchid Crafts and IAmRoses - i wish Kizzy would make up some more of these kits using Teddy Bea & Bo.

This is a card i made from the Polka Doodles CD called Sweet Stuff - i love these little images and the papers are so yummy - the flowers all came from Wild Orchid Crafts.

This card is one my friend Sue has seen on Less is more site (i think its that one) Sue is trying to make me see the error of my ways LOL LOL - less is more is not the way you would describe my cards i think LOL LOL - but i loved this card.
I made this card for my friends Mum - i bought the sheet from CUP added a few embellies and it was done.
