Hair Grip using Art Philosophy

This is a simple hair grip I made for my stall at the Craft Fair.  They were very popular and so easy to make.  The grips I bought from my local supermarket very cheap. Then using the flowers from Art Philosophy just glued them onto the grips using Pin Flair glue Gel.

Thanks for your comments.

Hi all these are the stained glass items I have made for a Craft Fair I am attending on Tuesday 25th October at Appledore in Devon, UK.  If anyone wants to come over for a look and preferably to buy something it is at the Local Church.  You are all very welcome and all the stalls have some very lovely crafts for sale.

Thanks for looking.  Will try and post a selection of cards I have made too.

Birthday Card using Better Together and Grand Calibur

As 99% of my die cuts are Spellbinders if not all,  the new ones were on my shopping list and so I had to have the Grand Calibur.  Its great being able to cut and emboss a full A4 or lots of smaller die cuts.  On the edge of this card I used the Classic scallop Edgabilites and I cut the mat out with the Classic triple scallop and the Classic scallop rectangles to make a frame.  Then I used one of the Edgabilities down the side of the frame to cover up the fact I hadnt got the rectangle in the middle of
the frame!!  I placed a bit of paper at the back and the girl and dog from Better together page 20 cut at 3 inches and the sentiment too.  I used some glossy embossing powder to put on the dog, girls hair and dress and also the sentiment. 

This is another card I made, as I couldnt stop using the Grand Calibur, its so easy to use and  great for back grounds and edging.

Thanks for looking.  Hope you all had a great summer break.

More Birthday Cakes using Birthday Bash!

Hiya everyone.  Sorry not been around for a while.  Been busy with the boys, it was so nice to have time with my boys during the summer holidays and we had a nice time visiting relatives and a few day trips in the local area, like The Eden project in Cornwall.

This is just to show you the cakes I made for my eldest sons 20th birthday.  I made the flags at 1.5 inch and the letters at 3/4 inch and cheated with the candles.
 Thanks for looking.  Hope everyone is having a good crafty day.
