Birthday Fun!

Both of my sisters have had their birthdays this month so I have played around a bit to make them something fun!

Here's what I made for Sarah- I made matching mini magazine holders for her to put her cards in. These were so easy to make (I found a great tutorial here- http://www.stampinwithblythe.com/2009/03/magazine-files-downsized-into-card-files.html)

And here is the birthday card I made her. I followed the tutorial on Splitcoaststampers.com to make this wiper card. I love how it looks like a normal card then you pull both sides out to reveal a fun pop up. Love it!!

Now.... For Claire's birthday I learnt how to do the Faux Allligator technique at a training day with my upline Ingrid, and we made the handbag. Now Claire is a bit of a shoe freak - I think she only has about 40 something pairs!! - so I just knew I had to make shoes to go with her bag card for her birthday!! So here they are - and yes, she loved them!! I found a great template/tutorial for the shoes at ellenhutson.com

And Here are the shoes and bag together. Aren't they cute!!

Well I have to be off now - heading up to school to help teach Jessica's class (yr 5's) how to crochet!!

Catchya again soon - still have plenty more photos to post!!

Christmas Catch Up!

I know I have been slack in updating by blog, but you know how it is - Husband, 6 kids, sports day, new job, late nights, etc, etc! But anyway, here is a start. Below are the six cards I did for my Christmas in July Workshop. I will post some more soon. In the essence of time I won't be putting up recipes, but if you want to know what I have used for each card, leave a comment and I will get back to you.

This one was inspired by Marelle Taylor (http://www.marelletaylor.com/)

This was inspired by another stamper's blog I've been on but can't find it again - sorry.

This card was inspired by the scrapbook page in the Stampin' Up! catalogue showing this stamp set.

This is one I created myself - that doesn't happen very often!!
Oh, and this one too - I think!

Will post again soon - I want to show you the shoes and hand bag I made for my sisters birthday!

Catchya, Deb
