Quick share of an eclipse card I made for... can you guess who?
Made using the CTMH Block Alphabet and Doily Wishes stamp set. After stamping the Doily wishes with Heather Ink I daubered the doily sections with blue, pink and green.
Today's Quick Tip Tuesday shows you how to use sponges and daubers to achieve some special effects on cards.
I'm a huge tea lover so when Close To My Heart released this collection I was really excited to have a play.
This layout was made using the new Beautiful Friendship collection. It features tea cups, a tea pot and gorgeous flowers and butterflies from the following Cricut Bundles (Art Philosophy, Flower Market, Artiste).
Luckily for me my gorgeous niece is also a lover of tea and has her own tea set. The pot is filled with water so she can play and make teas for everyone, sometimes she makes potions too. hehe!
You can find these gorgeous papers in the online store from May 1st.
Today's Quick Tip Tuesday shows you how to make 3D flowers to embellish your cards.

It comes as no surprise to anyone that I am super excited for my first wedding anniversary. Traditionally the gift for a first wedding anniversary is paper, and I LOVE PAPER !!!
Now it's very unlikely that my husband will see this post or card I've made for him before tomorrow so I think I'm safe sharing it with you here today, as long as you can keep the secret with me for a day ;-)
It's been made using the Close To My Heart, Artbooking, Cricut Cartridge (Floating Hearts Overlay). By playing around in the Cricut Design Space I was able to join the floating hearts to a card front, cut it out of Bashful cardstock and then cut a second layer of floating hearts, in the Bashful Glitter paper. The stamp is from the Cricut Flower Market Collection. The circles have been cut with generic stitched circle thin cuts.
I've added a circle to the inside of the card so I know where I can write (and will probably write on the back of this one too).
The products used in making this card are listed below. If you have the cricut cartridges I've saved the design for you to use by clicking here

Here's some photos of our Nepalese wedding last year. I am looking forward to returning in 2019 to our Nepalese 'family' and taking a few friends with us to share in the amazing experiences Nepal has on offer.

Star cards are all the rage right now and I've finally jumped on the bandwagon and had a play making these cards too. If you haven't tried making one yet I recommend it. They're so easy to make and look amazing.
My first attempt at making a star card was for a friends 40th Birthday and it didn't quite fit in the envelope. Lesson learned and the second attempt was made to fit inside a C5 envelope.
You can find the complete instructions on how to make these gorgeous cards here.
For the month of February we're focusing on the Making Waves Creative Collections.
Check out the upcoming events for classes and workshops using this collection.
The Seasonal Expressions 1 catalogue is out and I'm savouring every moment with it. The papers and new stamp sets are my favourite by far.
I'm starting off January with the Chelsea Gardens papers and stamps. They are so versatile I will have to make sure to order extra so I have it available to me for a long time to come.
The box card is perfect for these papers and stamp set. Having the Thin Cut Dies makes this little project even easier to assemble. Playing with this collection reminds me of English gardens in the spring (without the hay-fever).
You'll find below a little instructional video on how to make the basic Box Card and a cutting template on the Freebies page.
