Cameo inspiration

Hello there!! To all our fellow friends and followers,,

You may all ready know that the wonderful Carley Duff as not been on our screens for some time, This is due to technical problems that have been out of her control.. We were due to see her this Monday with new venture La Pashe..But the powers that be had to re arrange the schedule. So we are hoping Carley will be back very soon and of course we will keep you informed. We are hoping we'll be having some cameo shows aswell.. Has we have missed our CRAFTY ARMY leader being on our screens..

I have added creation that I created on the brilliant CAMEO machine - using the print and cut for the main topper - Designed my own frame and used swirl element I purchased from Silhouette store.   

We are hoping to had more inspiration over the coming months on here, to inspire you in your crafting life.

Bye for now and keep crafting.

Summer is here for sure...such warm weather too!!

Hello there!! I know it as been a little quiet here but it shouldn't be to soon when everything gets back to normal, What with the summer and other life events its always hard to fit everything in..but things will get there soon and hopefully we have some good news to share with you. So rest assure we have not forgotten you all!! Like we would do that hey!! I think not.

Since we haven't had any TV inspiration for a while, thought it would be nice to show some crafty inspiration on our blog.  

Sentiment was print and cut - Matt and layer with the flowers and leaves were cut using Silhouette Cameo

Usual Wedding card 

Yes I agree this is very usual wedding card, but when I designed this I had to think what the bride and groom would like and love. They love skulls and tattoos so when I founded this image I just had to use it, but of course with permission from the artist of course Linda Alder.

The wedding couple loved this design and were over the moon, So I was quite proud I had manage to get it spot on.

Bye for now until next time...We should have some news to share with you next time.

Easter Treats

Hello Crafty Friends and Cameo Fans!!

Can you believe its almost Easter, well I decided to create some treats for friend's kids as I'm not one of these who goes to local supermarket and buy Easter Egg with no cardboard and plastic to sink a ship so I decided on this idea and took inspiration from that famous Big M restaurant that all kids and grow up love to go to (Me included) 

You can get sweets and treats quite cheap in supermarkets and discount stores, I purchased mine from Aldi and its worked out at under 80p per gift so that's quite good value.  

I used my Silhouette Cameo and I used Fries box element from the silhouette cameo download store quite some months back and thought it would be great for this project.

Using the Silhouette Sketch pens I wrote the names of children who will be receiving them and cut the names out then offset that in blue cardstock. 

Items used - Clear cellophane - Coloured cardstock - Card Candi - Sweets - Silhouette Cameo using download element from Silhouette store - Silhouette Sketch pens

Thanks for passing by today and hope you have enjoyed this post today and the lovely bright and upbeat colours.

Please be sure to follow our blog so up get the latest news and updates of our posts.

A very special card

 I designed this card for my Mum's birthday and always like to go that extra mile to make a special card, I used digistamp from Milk&Coffee on Esty (via download), crafters companion angelica and friends background paper, my craft studio background sheet, card stock, mirror card, large buttons, white paper flowers, adhesive gems and the happy birthday using the fabulous Silhouette Cameo Machine. 

Thanks for stopping by our blog today and hope its inspired you in your crafting life.
