Sneak Peak for new Mini

Hello fellow lovers of craft!! How are you?? I've been great, enjoying life and of course stamping!! Not that you'd know from the lack of me popping in.... but believe me I still do take photo's of all I make, it's just making the time to post about them!!!
This lovely card I made for my beautiful friend who had a birthday a few weeks back. I had just received my pre-order from the up and coming Autumn/Winter Mini (released next month) and was busting to try out the new bird die!!! Yes lovelies you read right... we are getting a BIRD DIE!!
I used only the wings for this card and then a retired greeting I have from a baby set. The card itself can be found HERE, this is where I got the step by step instructions on how to make.

I was really happy with the end result and hope Amanda loved it too!!
Do remember that it's only days till the end of Sale-a-bration and the Summer mini so if there are things on your wish list do get them before it's too late!!!
Happy Friday and weekend and... well see you soon (ish!!)

Cards for First Paper Dolls 2012

Well it took a little longer than wanted but here are the cards for last months Paper Dolls!!
I've wanted to make the rosettes for a long time and have seen them EVERYWHERE!!! SO I did a search and found THIS great step by step tut!! It was awesome to finally know and then show how to make these wonderful emblishments to my wonderful ladies and so here where the cards they all went home with in Feb....

I love the colour combo of the Sale-a-bration DSP and have taken A LOT of inspiration from them. I also love the sets that Stampin' Up! are offering this year and with the help of friends were able to ink them up too!!

Have you made one of these rosettes?? Do tell if you have??
Happy week lovely bloggers,
