CSI - Case File NO3 + A Blog Award

Hi everyone, not feeling too good at the moment some sort of flu virus, I think, so came home early from work today. Hope you are all well and busy creating, I checked my blog the other day and had a comment from fellow blogger Kelly saying I had been nominated for a blog award, feel free to check her out she does some amazing work. This is my layout over at CSI used a picture of my husbands great niece Sofia, isn't she a cutie, Loved the colours this week especially the pink and grey used my copics to shade the flowers and have fallen in love with the digi stamp I used from Saturated Canary's etsy shop she is called Baby Cakes and is adorable, also adore the little pink baby buttons snuggled away in the flower clusters. Hope you like it take care and be sure to check out CSI, Doreen x

Latte Gift Cup

Hi everyone, hope you are all finding time to craft, I thought I would share my latest creation, it is a gift card for a friend. I saw this idea on youtube and fell in love with it, the link is on an older post if interested, so ordered the stamp and the copics and this is what I came up with. The large Latte cup was cut from the Cricut "Love you a Latte"

cartridge which is so useful and the stamp was a lalaland stamp which I have now become addicted to. After cutting at ten and a half inches this will fit right into one of those coffee holders you can pick up for free when in Starbucks/Costa. I decorated the holder and attatched the Starbucks gift card behind. Any questions feel free to ask and if you want to give it a go and don't have a cricut I will gladly send a few Latte cups in the post! Take care and have a great Sunday, Doreen x

Happy New 2012 to one and all!

Have been playing today and thought I would share my latest addiction. Have discovered Copic markers and LaLaLand stamps. Watched a tutorial on Copic markers on youtube and had to have some, made this tag today to go on a friend's gift of Lush bath bombs. The LaLaLand,bubble lala bath stamp was perfect and let me try out my new purchases.

Also playing around with this Latte cup that I cut from the Cricut "Love you a Latte" and Winter Marci stamp. I saw someone on youtube who made gift cards using this stamp and some latte cup dies she used to make gift cards, they where adorable! So just been messing around and coming up with lots of ideas! Purchased these stamps and Copic markers from the lovely people over at Sir Stampalot give them a try, lovely service. Take care and hope to do lots of catching up with everyone this week, Ciao x
