Happy anniversary!

This pop up card is from the idea
of Karen Burniston again.

It's one I recently did for my
daughter & son-in-law's
5th anniversary!


I hope you like this idea
and give it a try.

You tube her video for instructions 
and other cool ideas!

Another MR & MRS!!!!

So here is another wedding card!
One of my faves to make!

I got this idea from Karen Burniston.
She has some amazing pop-up cards.

The whole thing ends up being kind
of like a book.  I use a 'belly band' to keep
it all closed and together.

The accordion looking end pieces are quite finicky
but so worth the effort!  

I used clear vellum sheets to create
a back drop.
The "Mr & Mrs" is letters cut out with the cuttlebug
and then ran each through the Xyron and glittered 
them up!!

I hope you liked this pop up card and will give it a try.
Karen Burniston has many 
cool videos on youtube.

I will post other ones I have finished soon.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Mixed Media Canvas

Hi again!

I have been trying something new.
Mixed media on canvas.

I have been watching some very
talented people on youtube
and they have inspired me to try.

I am nowhere near as good as they are!!
But is so fun.
I hope to improve as I keep trying new things.

Here are two of my "newbie"

This first one I did for my mum.
She has similar colours in her craft room.
I at the end of it all...I added some 
polka dot feathers.
(Sorry no pic of that)
It looked better.

This next one I put in my guest room.
It looks quite gold in the photos...but in reality it isn't that gold. 

Well....Thank you for stopping by again.
I love this new art form and I hope you do too!

Custom Coasters

Hi again!
Just wanted to share some custom coasters
that I made for some "country"
folk in the family!

This is their "logo" that they  use on 
many things.

I had to print it onto acetate and then
carefully cut it out in order
to use it as my template on these 

These little trinkets I made using shrink dinks.
And I tied them to the gift at the end.

The next 3 photos are of coasters I made for
their kids.
These are not the finished coasters.
After this they were sanded smooth and sealed.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask!
Thanks for stopping in!
