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.

One for the boys!!!

Hello there!! Lots to do today so thought I would get my post out early!! Have been back at the day job this week - and been getting to know my new little lovelies!! But today I am off to run a few errands in town, and then into the garden for more tidying up!! 

So - this card is for a friend's son - can't believe he's 11 this year!! My OH and I got married 10 years ago next month - and he was a little toddler at the time!! 
Anyway - here's what I made. He loves his football - so this Create Companion from Crafter's Companion's Camden Town CD was perfect!! I used two co-ordinating papers from the CD for matting and layering.

I made a blue A5 base card, and more of the same for matting and layering. The large mat is embossed with Embossalicious 8x8 Beautiful Bunting folder.

The letters and numbers were cut with Die'sire 1" Alphabet and Numbers die sets - a total essential in my opinion!!

A little piece of ribbon tied in a knot finishes it all off!!
