Framed, Scan N Cut!

 I thought I'd share the gift that I made for the recent arrival of a sweet baby girl.

I found this layered box frame on special offer in Sainsburys and thought it would be perfect meaning that I could even add some lovely bunting. I have to say that the Brother Scan N Cut is perfect to create this kind of thing, I used it for the lettering, the triangles for the bunting and also the daisy border.

Whilst I'm here, a little mid way reminder that I'm hosting this fortnight's 
"Totally Ladybug Tuesday Challenge"
I used an image from the "Baby,baby digi collection"

I'm using this for the following challenges:-
Bunny Zoe's, Monochrome,

For A Special Lady

Morning all, it's my turn to host the challenge at
"Totally Ladybug Tuesday"

Now, March is always a busy card making month for me, apart from birthdays of several friends, I've also got my lovely Mum's 86th Birthday and of course, Mother's day. 
So with that in mind, 
the theme that I chose for this fortnight is:-

Kerry thought it would be fun if the design team each used one of the  "Nikki and  friends" digis or stamps, I chose "Coffee Nikki" 

Somehow I got distracted and instead of making one of the cards that I need for March, I made one that I don't need for a couple of months, oh well, at least I will be ready when the day arrives for once!

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
CWWC65, Hearts and flowers,
Bearly Mine March, For the girls,
C & S 72, Lace,
AGOAC115, Special Lady.

Oh Brother

I shared a few weeks ago that I was a lucky girly, but as I keep saying, I haven't been getting much time to play at the mo.  However on Monday, I thought I'd switch on my "Brother Scan n Cut" and make a card I needed.

Now, I've made this style of card before but I have to say, even though this was the first time I'd made one the "SnC" it took a fraction of the time that the hand cut versions have taken and gives a much cleaner result.

Saving the design to the memory it's going to be the quickest of makes next time I need a card for an 18 year old!
 If you've seen the brilliant demos that Mel and John have done on C&C you'll know that it's easy to weld shapes together, I did this, flipped them and reversed them then welded them together again to create both the front and back of the card in one piece. I then just cut the numbers out individually from DP, inked the edges, and added inky stitching before overlapping them on the front of my cut blank. (Does that make any sense?)  Even the bunting was also cut on the "SnC" from sized triangles. The stars and tag were die cuts though I could also have cut them on the machine.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
CWD, Shaped card,
CC258, Birthday,
PWC301, Birthday,
PPC168, Anything goes,
MIM182, Anything goes. (Sadly this is the last ever Make it Monday challenge :( )

Against The Clock

Most of my cards are from my bank of photos at the mo but today I grabbed a few minutes to make the card that's been running through my head since this week's LIM challenge theme was posted. I'm so relieved that the stamp I was after was found easily in my drawer and by the way, for anyone that I crafted with last weekend, I found my glasses yesterday, happy days!

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
LIM162, One layer spring,
KC12, Spring flowers,
TBC10, Spring flowers.

JFFCB, Anything goes,
Scrap it girl, Birthday,

A quick post sharing a card made last weekend.

Another bit of practice with the Polychromos, some washi tape and my trademark tiny tag (lol), this one is rather smaller than I'd meant it to be but as I was crafting away from home at the time I had to go with what I'd got and that was the one from the sheet that I'd printed out in the wrong size, oops!

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
FAF109, Birthday,
Graph it 10, Male colours,
KIS35, stripes,
SSC110, Young man,
PCJ, Boyish,
MIM181, Anything goes.
