Nestabilities - Helpful Tips

Thought I would quickly share you some info on the Nestabilities that I found helpful before I was hooked!!!

Firstly this site is great guide to what they are, the sizing and how you can use them on the die cutting machine you have, not just the cuttlebug.

This video show's you how you use them in your cuttlebug... I found this really helpful, it's much easier to watch someone doing it rather than reading it.

OK so now you are tempted and want them?! The cheapest place in UK I found was Joanna Sheens website for £16.99 a set, plus you get free P&P, click on the link below and go to the bottom of the page!

Hope that's helped you out, Happy shopping lol!

Hmmm Cupcakes

Look no pink!!! I love these little cupcake stamps by Hero Arts, they are currently one of my favourite new stamps. You can't see it on the photo but I have glittered up a little of the icing on the cake.... You will also notice that I'm back into spots again!!!

Scalloped circle cut with another of my new toys Nestabilities scalloped circles, used on my faithful cuttlebug! I love them... I could talk about them for hours!!!

What I love about them the most is that you can cut a whole range of sizes using just one set, I think there is 6 scalloped circles in one set and thr largest is 4 inches, they take up hardly any room, unlike the punches. I store mine in clear CD boxes.

Happy Anniversary Card

Oooh I've been a bad blogger haven't I?! Been really busy lately and haven't had much time to make many cards and the ones I have made I still can't show!!

Anyway here's the anniversary card I made for my OH, Our anniversary was Monday (21st) can't believe it's been 14 years... I was a sweet innocent 16 year old when we met lol... I thought at first he had forgotton as no card first thing :(... but I came home to a lovely card, flowers and pink sapphire earrings... So I actually did quite well!

Papertrey Butterfly

Well it didn't take long for for a pink card to find it's way on my blog lol... I am going to try this year to use more colours in my cards but pink will always be my favourite colour!!

I wanted to try out my new clear stamp set which I bought just before christmas, it's a butterfly stamp set by papertrey and I just lurve them!!

I'm in the process of making some female birthday cards with no pink on them for a competition and I am also making myself an address book and calandar with my bind it all machine, this will be the first thing I have made with my bind it machine to keep for myself as I normally give them away! Once they are finished I'll show you them!

Male Birthday Card - Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year to all my online blogger friends!!! Lets hope 2008 is a good one for us all.... I've been quite poorly over christmas/new year... just slowly trying to get back on my feet.
Anyway first card of the year and it was a kinda OMG I've got a male card to do and I have no idea what to do type of panic this afternoon lol!!
Anyway had a little play with that lovely cuttlebug cake die and this is the fairly simple but effective card I came up with... Hope it doesn't look too girly?!
The dotty paper is HOTP (still in shock that I cut into this as it's gorgeous!) and the 'happy birthday' stamp is from the new Hero Arts clear stamp sets (yep I treated myself to a few sets!)
Loads more cards to share and you'll be impressed to hear that some don't have pink on lol!!
