I finally managed to get out and down to the range to grab my copy of do crafts Creativity magazine, I hunted around the store to find a copy as they seemed to have all sold out!!! I found one copy left hidden at a unused till, thank goodness!!!! I love the free Daisy and Dandelion stickers they are so cute!!!

Once I had found my magazine I went to the bargain corner, I know we all love a bargain lol I had a hunt through the boxes whilst chatting to a lovely fellow crafter who was collecting a few cheap sets to raffle at the pensioners do they have every month at the home she is a nurse at, I always meet such lovely people whilst in craft shops lol. I managed to pick up a Fiskars 2 in one shape cutter for 4.99 originally 12.99 so I was happy with that find, its always worth a quick look!

I then had to decided what papers and other card making items I wanted to work with, there is so much choice you really do need to spend a day in craft stores just to take in all that they have on offer. I looked at the Smirk range which I love but they didnt have all that I wanted so I had a look at the forever friends range and bought some lovely Party Time papers and some stickers, we will see what we can come up with those. I have at least 3 cards already that I can make with them.

So now I am off to have a quick blog hop and then off to read my creativity mag and then a play with my new fiskars cutter and other craft goodies.

Here are my latest creations for Valentines Day. I have used red and black for the first and Then some thing slightly different colour wise for the second. I think they are both simple yet affective cards that didnt take too long to make. I think Valentines cards have been the most difficult creations to think up so far.

Creations so Far cont.

These are last years Christmas Cards and Christmas Atc's. (Christmas 08)

Creations so Far

These are the first Birthday cards I ever created for some one else. Whom the some one else was I will never know as they were donated with lots of other cards to a Charity to sell to raise money.

The Atcs are the first I had ever attempted and I was pleased with how they turned out. The theme was 'open' so I created some thing a little different.


I have mastered the layouts and fiddly bits of this blogger and now I just have to add my pictures and other bits and bobs and all will be well.

I haven managed to get any crafting done in the past few weeks but I have managed to collect lots of new things to create stuff with. I am pleased to have popped into tesco and purchase some left over christmas stuff that can be used all year round. Fiaries are brilliant and I think I will be making a few cards with those items.

I have purchased some stuff from fiskars and have yet to use the embossing tools but have been using the corner punches and they do add that extra special touch!

I have had a few small ideas of cards I would like to make so will be working on those next. Also I have just bought a lovely guinea pig stamp which I am most exctied about.

Now I am off to sort the rest of this blog out and make sure its the way I like it, watch this space for pic of my creations, they will be coming soon!!!
