New Baby Girl, Big Brother, Cousin Cards

I made a few cards today…

It feels good to be able to go up to my shed and make things again… and actually enjoy doing it…

A new baby girl has arrived … although not the same baby girl that arrived today for the Duke and Dutchess of Cambridge, but to friends of ours son and daughter-in-law.

So I made a wee card…

Pinterest Challenge : Envelope Punch Board Bows

Hi Everyone…

Today I challenged myself to make something from Pinterest, just to see if it “works for me” ..  so I chose to make some pretty bows using the envelope punch board by We R Memory Keepers… and guess what? they worked 🙂 yay!!

Bows 1

So easy to make too!   I also recorded a video of me making them, which you can view here

bows 2

All that you will need is 3 pieces of patterned paper…

  • 1 x 6″ x 1″
  • 1 x 3″ x 1″
  • 1 x 1/4″ x 1″
  • and an envelope punch board.

I plan on making a few more, some with the edges inked and some with the edges scuffed just to see how they compare, and also to incorporate them onto a card

bows 3

I love how they turned out … and can’t wait to try something else from Pinterest to challenge myself

As always, thanks so much for popping round
