And on the inside......
Last week this was posted. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-y9-nlvJJ_gg/Tawbu1pbGZI/AAAAAAAACuM/wKl5hgZeg6w/s1600/shobana.jpg
I had to try it out.
Here is the link to Shobana's site http://timepasshobbies.wordpress.com/2011/04/11/my-first-pop-up-card/
and here is the link to the video tutorial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUGrIop_pwo&NR=1
I used patterned paper for the above. It really is a little too heavy paper for this pop up. I made it work as I just had to use 'Salt Air' on this card.
Also to practise I cut the flowers originally with plain paper just as in the video but for the flowers here I used my little slice machine to cut out seven 'eight petal flowers' and proceeded on as in the video

A few photos posted today for a lady preparing for a fair in October. Thanks to a crafty pal I have these photos to show. It was a fund raising event for a lovely talented young lady in the crafting community in Ireland in October 2009. I decided to just jump in, volunteer and participate. It was a worthy cause and made great use of my paper crafting hobby and stash. I had great fun and all items were very easy to make.
http://www.marthastewart.com/article/coffin-treat-box I printed them on Kraft card stock, cut, stuck, filled with goodies, tied up with black string and embellished with cheap peel off stickers. The topper were just stamped and matted. I think the stamps were from Papertrey ink.
I used some cheap papers from a Halloween party invitation pack to embellish and added the shaky eyes.
This Halloween prop looked good. I am not sure if you can make out in this photo the little paper pumpkins. I got this idea and instructions from here
I made some witches brooms see above link but they must have sold before the photo was taken.
The props were great. They made an otherwise simple white tablecloth table a bit more dramatic and inviting.

Happy Mother's Day to all my visitors today. I am a very blessed mum to two very wonderful young men and an equally blessed daughter to a 'Mum in a million'. I treasure my husband also today for the gift of my two sons and also my dad who fills my heart with love and pride.
Today I am sharing with you a card I made especially for 'My Mum'. I used the beautiful papers from Waiting for Santa from Webster's Pages. The card I designed myself and the inspiration for the gift bag/ envelope I got from Michelle Wooderson from the Mish Mash site. I so loved making this card I almost wanted to keep it !
