Ultimate Tag Album

I just adore these little tag albums they are so cute and interesting to use. I wanted to make one for my friend as she loves my birds so using Plantin Schoolbook, Home Accents, New Cardstock from Papermania, Cuttlebug Birds and Leaves Embossing folder and ribbons I made this one.
I also made a small box to present it in.
The photo's are some she herself took one day when here for lunch/craft session, thanks for those lovely shots.

Alcohol Inks

I wanted to use these inks I bought a while back but so far have had no ideas for them. Then I found some A4 sheets of acrylic sheet so I bought some and got to work and this is what I have come up with. Memo boards which would make a great gift for a friend or maybe someone who plays Bingo to hold their playing cards on.

To protect the inks from being rubbed and scratched off I turned them over and applied card to the worked side, in my opinion the effect from the other side is much better than the worked side.

Acrylic sheet 3mm thick
Alcohol inks
Fancy Clip from Staples
Clear adhesive

A new car for my Dad

I wanted to do something a bit different for my Dad this year for Fathers Day and saw this made by a friend and had to give it a try. I took a whole day for the first one which was awful but the second attempt as a bit better. I think this turned out to be the most expensive card I ever made. I think I could have bought a real "Rolls" for the cost of this card!!!!

Golden Wedding

It was my lovely Aunt and Uncles Golden Wedding Anniversary so I made them this card

Easter, just a bit late

These are some of the first things I made with my Cricut and non-cricut too

Tag Book

How cute is this, it has since been filled with, yes you guessed it, Noah :-)

Scrapbook Page Billcat

This is my dear departed cat Billy, he is much missed by us. He sadly died of cancer last year. I adore these papers which came free with a magazine, they suit this layout so well.

Bind-it All Photo Albums

Here are a couple of albums one is for my new kittens, Herbie & Freddie and the other is of course a Grandson Album!!!

Circle Albums


Thanks to the lady on U Tube for this Fab idea I really love making these too.

This one is of my new Grandson Noah I made a little box for them all to keep them nice

This one is old family photo's, the papers really look nice with black and white shots.

Cart reminder book

I made this Bind-it All book to put a sheet for each option to a cart so that I can look them up easier. I have laminated each page to keep them clean as they get a lot of use. Sorry they do not photograph well due to the glare but you can get the general idea.

Paper Dolls Book

I made this to put all my sample dolls in.

I just adore the Peachy Keen Stamps for the faces

Bind-it All Notebooks

I just love to make these little notebooks I now have lots of them!!!

Album made from old CD's

I made this for my daughter using my Bind-it All and some free CD's from magazines, I cut the circles on the cricut, what a godsend that is being able to get a perfect round shape, a job I found impossible before

Previous work I have made

I thought I would add some photo's of previous work I have done. Forgive any you may have seen on the Cricut site already.

Many thanks to the lady "Chicnscratch" who posted the popsicle Cards on U-Tube they are wonderful and such fun to make

See her fab tutorial here

This is a boxed card I made for my partners sister
