A couple of cards

These were a couple more cards I made over last weekend.  I got these butterflies from The Works who have a really good new range at the moment.  The alphabet stickers are Papermania ones I got from Hobbycraft and the squares were cut on my sister's BigShot.

The card below is simply made using a set of robot stickers I got from The Range.  They had some brilliant sets of stickers last time I went in and thought these were great for more boyish cards.

Ribbon Memo Board

This was a bit of an experiment! I had seen these 'French Memo Boards' online before and thought I should have a go.  I got a couple of cheap canvases from a pound shop and used a staple gun to attach some wadding and fabric to one of them.  I then bought 3m of ribbon which I cut into strips to go on the board.  I stapled the strips in one direction and then wove the ones for the other direction through the existing ribbons and then stapled them down as well.  I was then able to add some photos to the board which can be changed whenever you want!  I'm actually quite pleased with how this turned out and am thinking of making more if I can find more cheap canvases.

Jungle cards

I went to the Range at the weekend with my sister which meant I bought too many stickers again!  I do love the stickers that they sell there.The card above was made using a set of really cute giraffe and tiger stickers and some die cut shapes of paper.  I added some flower embelishments from the same set and then put a silver sentiment on to finish it off.

This card was made using a set of puffy stickers also from the Range which I added to some strips of sticky ribbon.  I wasn't too sure about this one and am still not convinced it works, I finished it with a silver sentiment at the bottom.

Decorated hearts

I made these decorated hearts for two little girls who are friends of my daughter.  I made the pink one by painting an mdf heart with pink wall paint then added some letter stickers I bought from Hobbycraft and then some puffy stickers also from there.  They only sold them for about a month and I really wish I'd bought more!  The other one is decopatched with the same stickers but in pink this time.  I added some pink ribbon through the hole at the top to finish them.

Easy Cards

Whilst at the NEC show, I bought a pad of paper for £1 because of these brilliant slogans on some of the pages.  I thought they would make great cards for any occassion and so have kept them really simple with just the picture layered on silver and pink backing.  I found it hard to stick the first one straight so went for a different approach with the second one which I think I prefer!

Gift Tags

I had seen some lovely gift tags had been made on another blog and thought they looked really good.  I then saw some brown luggage tags and put the two together to come up with my own idea for them.  These have been made using different papers covering the tags and stuck using double sided tape.  I added a ribbon loop on each to attach them to the gift and lastly added a sentiment tag to each one.  A personal touch to any gift.
