Here's my first coaster box that I made for a swap for my lovely friend Linda... She's a big Ozzy Osbourne fan so I just knew I had to make this with an Ozzy theme!! I'm quite pleased with how it turned out for a first timer!!
The papers are Doodlebug along with the Alphabet & the stiched heart buttons. It's the first time I have covered chipboard with paper and I was pleased with how it came out! The Swirls on the inside are Autumn Leaves clear stamps I use those stamps A LOT!!

How on earth will I use any of these? Aren't they just lush?!! My other half spotted the scrapbook sign and bought it without me knowing!! The black circle on the first piccie is a spinning thing (technicial term lol) to sit under your craft bag so you don't have to pick it up... I know it sounds really lazy but I've wanted one for a while and it saves keep getting up!!
Now the really really really exciting news.... I've got a Saturday job... at CAPTURE THE MAGIC... OMG I am soooo excited about it, if you've never had the pleasure of setting foot into this place you are missing out big time... it's a crafters paradise!
You can spend hours in there, well I know I do lol Everyone is so friendly and there is sooo much stuff you can buy... I am so looking forward to it!!!! Yippeee!!!

The happy birthday greeting is from my new Stampin Up set and the scalloped circle is the Stampin' Up scalloped circle... I know I have the scalloped nestabilities but the Stampin Up punch is a MUST buy!!!

This LO is of my first trip to Jersey to see my grandparents at Les Quennevais Park aged about one!. I used a sketch that had been set on the forum too which I found really helpful too! The flowers came from Sarahs Cards her Aunty Sarah's Bloomers are fantastic value for money!
The stamps are Hero Arts Peeking Posieis, I remember when they came out, I just had to have them because they are so pretty... I haven't used them in a while which is a shame because I really do still like them.
Papers are by basic grey I had a real tough time using this one as I have been keeping it for a rainy day!! the greeting is an old rub on.
I made this card with a lovely friend in mind and found it very hard to part with it because I really wanted to keep it... but she loved it so I'm happy!

I thought I'd share this with you... I love my nestabilities and used to store them in blank CD cases with magnetic paper inside. But I found that some of them weren't staying put in the cd case and would fall out which I found annoying!

I find it really hard to make male cards, simply because when I buy my stash I am always drawn to the pink & girly stuff... I look at the stash suitable for men's cards and they just don't inspire me... So I don't buy it and then when it comes down to actually making a male card I go into complete panic mode... why can't I just use pink and flowers?! Although I do have an order for a gay pink card which is going to be very interesting!!
Anyway this card is for our Nephew, he's just started to get into music in a big way Iron Maiden is god apparently!! I got sent some wonderful templates by email a few months back that I had been meaning to try out and thought this was the perfect opportunity to try them!
Basically these templates start at 11 and go up to 100 and all you have to do is print the number onto card, it shows you where to fold the card and then you cut round the number... If anyone is interested in owning a copy of this please email me as I'd be happy to email you a copy :)
The 'Iron Maiden' is decoupaged although it doesn't show up very well... he opened it whilst I was on the phone and he was very excited about it, it's wicked apparently and he wants to frame it... awww bless him!!!
I was at my Stampers 10 group last night and had a lovely time, we all made a lovely pop up card, really impressed which how easy it was, I'll pop up a piccie of mine tomorrow!
