Kiss this!!

Hi there everyone, I'm here with you today with a bit of a cheeky card to showcase one of the more pin up style images from the Karleigh Sue etsy shoppe .... you can leave me your suggestions on who I should send it to in the comments section if you like :P

I have used 'Cuddie Buddie' 

to create this fairly CAS layout

The papers I used were from Prima, and I finished the card off with some ultra chunky 4mm 
silver half pearls.. I love them for adding a little bling!

If you haven't already, check out our CHALLENGES
and our facebook fan group! they are both great places to hang out :)

That Craft place 'Words' Challenge

Hey there, and happy sunday! 
today is the start of a new challenge on the that craft place challenge blog - 'words' 

I've gone completely out of my comfort zone for this one - creating a card that is mostly white.

I used centura pearl cardstock,

a wood grain embossing folder, 
spellbinders floral ovals die
marianne designs frame die
paperartsy stamp set.
half pearls

all from that craft place
(you can shop in person at that craft place shop in eastbourne, or look for the 'that craft place' group on facebook :) )

and also an old retired PSX stamp and my MFT flower dies.

I hope you like it as it is completely different to what I usually do- no colouring, for starters!

please do come and check out the challenge :)

Prego Summer

Hi there everyone, Rachel sneaking in with a bit of unplanned inspiration today- I just finished a card,using yesterday's colouring of Prego Summer, that you may have seen in the Karleigh Sue facebook Fan group!

I added her to a cute little 5.5"x4.5" card

using crate paper, a hot pink paper doily and some bakers twine, along with some cute little sequins 

I think you will agree she's totally rocking summer pregnancy!

Zutter A4 page punching tutorial

Zutter bind it all A4 page punching tutorial

Hi there everyone! I bought a zutter bind it all earlier this year, unfortunately  bought it preloved, and it had no instructions with it, and it has taken me until now to work out how to punch an A4 page perfectly, so I thought I would share how I did it, in case anyone else was wondering how!

Step 1-

               mark template page half way down long side 

step 2-
line up with centre arrow on Zutter
step 3-
punch using Open setting

step 4-

put notch into 3rd hole from left, on continuous setting

step 5-

turn paper so reverse is facing you, and repeat step 4

step 6-

put notch into 5th hole from left. punch (continuous setting still)

step 7-
 turn paper to reverse and repeat step 6
voila, holes all the way up, with a cm gap at each end
this will use all but 2 rings from the Zutter wire strips.

I hope this tutorial has been of some use to someone, if it has please consider leaving me a comment, or even giving my blog a cheeky follow!
