Simply Affectionately Yours

imageHi, today’s projects are 2 quick makes using Affectionately Yours DSP one of the new packs of DSP you will be able to purchase from 1st June. They are both made using Very Vanilla card stock and Night of Navy ink. Happy Crafting 😊

Novelty card

Hi, the new in colour DSP stack Playful Palette lends it’s self well to all kinds of projects. This particular sheet made me think of fabric and how pretty it would look as a novelty apron card. It’s a quick make card and open to all kinds of fancy accessorising, your imagination can run wild. Happy Crafting 😊

3rd Birthday Boing Box Card

Hi, today’s project is a bespoke project I put together for Edward’s 3rd birthday, he’s my sweetheart 💕💕 it took me quite sometime to put it together with a handmade spring to present the contents in a totally amazing way. Reality, it just struggled to pop about 1cm no sign of boing at all! Having said that it looks pretty good once it’s assisted from hiding and tweaked to make the best of the display. Eddie liked it and that’s all that matters. Hope you’re all having a good Bank Holiday and Happy Crafting 😊

I need to get on with completing my swaps for Telford on Saturday, packing my bag and organising myself Happy Crafting 😊image

#imbringingbirthdaysback

Hi, Stampin Up have just released a new stamp #imbringingbirthdaysback as part of the move toward getting people to send handmade cards rather than Facebook messages or e- cards.  Have you every received or sent a handmade card? Would you like to receive a handmade card that you can send out to a member of your family or friends? For a limited period of one week starting from Monday 18th April until Sunday 24th April (inc) I will send you a handmade card so you can see the quality of Stampin Up products and the professional look you get from these products. All you have to do is like my Laineybcrafts Facebook page (it must be the page you like not the post) and send me your address so I can send you your free handmade card. If you already like my page just send me your address. Only one card per household please. If you would like to learn how to make your own cards, let me know as I will be arranging workshops in Calderdale in the coming weeks. The cards I send out will be of my choosing – no special request, sorry. Happy Crafting 😊

Spring Sunday

Hi, been a busy week in the craft space making swaps for Stampin Up On Stage at Telford next Saturday. I can’t show you my swaps just yet as I want to keep them a secret and part of them I’m not quite sure what to put in them at present! Today after  finishing my swaps I thought I’d make a gift for a special little someone I will see next week to put in her bedroom. I just love making these home decor items it’s amazing how different they look with a change of colour. I used Mint Macaroon cardstock and the beautiful English Garden DSP. If you would like to purchase one in the colour of your choice I charge £15 inc p&p private message me if you would like to order one. Hope you are having a lovely Sunday Happy Crafting 😊image

Simple Style

Hi, today’s post is all about simplicity, I love clean and simple cards and these two are simple but elegant. I used Stampin Up stamp set Boardering Blooms the gold card is embossed and matted on gold card stock with a little bit of embossing work around the bloom. The other card I’ve water coloured using Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive inks and a water brush, again accenting the boarder print with two rows of embossing. I hope you like their simplicity too if you would like to make cards like these I will be starting a class for a small group max 4 all resources will be provided along with tuition and a cup of tea and cake, watch this space for more details. Happy crafting 😊image
