Hi Guys these are the samples that i have made for the march card social - the ladies will be able to make a minimum of 3 crackers with the kits - you see crackers are not just for crimble and you can put little gifts inside the crackers - i love making these.

 These are the baby girl/boy crackers - the papers are some that i purchased as a digi download a long time ago and the baby images were purchased from pc crafter who have since closed up shop - they were cut using my spellbinders nesties -  the flowers are from i am roses - the beaded twirly thingies and the fab vintage seam binding is from Ribbon Girl

which is what they say i am most of the time - lol - i decided this christmas that i was not going to make the dancers crimble cards - so what to do i say to myself - ahhh crackers methinks so i set about making my own crackers - i have to say they were not half bad at all this is the end result.

I had a great time working out a pattern and then busting my border punch on the edge - lol - the flowers were from iamroses and the berries from a pulled apart xmas wreath bought from asdas.

The image was a download i purchased from charmed cards and crafts

and this is all of my crackers ready to go dancing - i then discovered an easier way to get crackers is to buy them ready made from here awesome site - hope you enjoy looking - kym xx

January and February Card Social/Triple Heart Easel Card

The cards we made for the January card social ran into February as some of the ladies were away or poorly - i had been wanting to make this card for quite a few months and then this amazing paper range came out from docrafts and i thought it would be great for the Triple Heart Easel Card - i also watched a video on the docrafts site which helped a lot-The art deco card was made with docrafts beautiful papers which the ladies at the card social bought me as a xmas present - Thank you Ladies i love em

Hope you enjoy looking as much as i enjoyed making these cards - any questions just shout - kym xx
