About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Birthday Blues - not!!!

Has been full on day and a half at the 'day job' - busy, busy, busy!! Then rushing to pick up the car from the garage!! Is sooo nice to have my own car back - and it's all clean inside and out!! Can't remember when it looked so good!! has taken a little while to get used to it again though!!
Anyway,  yesterday was Tina's birthday!! Happy Birthday Tina!! This is the blue easel card I created just for her!!! 
The base of the Easel card is made from two 6x6 white cards. I printed this lovely blue Chocolate Box image from the Topper Companions of Crafter's Companion Halcyon Days CD (A5 size) onto Centura Pearl Hint of Silver. This was then mounted onto a piece of taupe coloured Bazzill card. For the rest of the card I used papers from the CD printed onto CC Silk Finish Paper, more of the taupe card, and some blue Bazzill. 

The stopper is cut using the smaller of the Crafter's Companion Die'sire Cameo Frame Dies, and the letters from the Die'sire 1" Alphabet set (both upper and lower case). A paper bow and bunting from the CD, along with a few pearls finished the whole thing off.
