You are Here



Next you visit Ange

I have made two projects for this Hop

Here is the first

I have used a cute new 3D sheet by Sherri Baldy. Such a cute Football Girl!

I have cut out all of the image elements and layered them with foam dots.


I have used a wonderful Football Card Template by The Cutting Cafe It also comes with various sentiments including the one I have used!

I used my Swiss dots Embossing Folder to emboss the card for the football!

Also I have inked all of the edges in brown.

Picture below shows layering!

I am also entering the above card in the following:

You can Find 3D Sheets HERE

Here is the Second


I needed to show this cute new image quickly before Easter was too far gone! LOL

She is adorable and hopefully available soon!

 I have made a Book Card similar to the one shown HERE that I made previously. 

You can find the Tutorial I used Below:

Book Card Tutorial

I used a lot of my pretty Lace, Ribbon and Flowers.

Oh and a beautiful Bow Die by Cherry Lyn that was a birthday present from my lovely friend Angie! x

 I have made the inside into a Chocolate Box for yummy Eggs!

Inside you can see I have used Sherri's Dies Heart Frame and Love Sentiment!

You can find the Dies HERE

I am entering my Book Card Chocy Box Here:

I also have my own BLOG CANDY HERE 


 Visit here for details of Ange's Candy Giveaway - a beautiful frame die from Sherri Ann Baldy once she reachs 200 followers and then a further 2 of Sherri's dies once she reachs 250 followers!


 I hope you enjoyed these projects! I am looking forward to your comments!

Have fun on the Hop!
