Well despite my good intentions it's been quite a while since I posted. Still haven't got back into the swing of crafting. Most of what I've done has been stuff I've had to do, and usually in a hurry too. It seems like the last month or so I just been chasing my tail. You know when you're really busy but you have nothing to show for it. I suppose I did start a new job at the beginning of June but I don't think I can really use that as an excuse. Hopefully now that I have my summer holidays I'll get back into it. Still haven't printed off any photos from the travels but I suppose once I do I'll have a reason to get scrapping again. Speaking of photos I booked a photographer for the wedding today (well we booked but you know what I mean, I decided and he paid lol). Here's his blog . I love his style of photography. He's really passionate about capturing the day naturally and moments as they happen rather than staged shots. I love the idea of that.
Anyway here's some of what I've been up to in the craftroom.
Here's a get well card I did just the other day
I reckon it's the first time I've used that swirly stamp in the 3 or so years I've had it.
Here is one I did for the principal inn the school I used to work in. He retired recently. The logo on the front is the school crest. They're not actually the school colours, but they're the colours of the school teams, so I don't think he'll mind. Designed it myself on the craftrobo. Impressed myself with that. Usually I just download templates or merge shapes.
I made this for a boy I used to babysit.Obviously enough it was for his First Communion. You can't see but the white background behind the cross is embossed with swiss dots.

Thanks to the girls over on CraftSupplies who helped
me with the quotes.
Now all I need to do is fill it with delicious recipes.
I made this wedding card for my friend's wedding last week. I made the whole template myself in Design Master for the CraftRobo. It took me quite a while to start to get to grips with it again but I was delighted with the result. I actually really like this card.
P.S. I know it looks a bit warped in places but it wasn't IRL.

Anyway so here are a few of the bits and pieces I have managed to do.
Way back in December Jackie very kindly put one of her workshop kits up for grabs and I was lucky enough to win it. It arrived just in time for me to make this card.
Then my aunt asked me to make this Wedding card for her.
Since I'm on a lovey-dovey theme this is the Valentine's card I did for BF.
I've done a few birthday cards for the too, most of them for the birthday club over on Craftsupplies, but these are the only ones I photographed.
I didn't make any Easter cards, but I did bake this Rice Krispie Nest for BF for Easter. You can really see but the inside is lined with Maltesers and Minstrels with a few mini marshallows for good measure.
You might have notice that I'm after getting 2 new scalloped border punches. I'm so addicted and using them on everything at the moment.

I've gotten a few LO's done since I've been to Caroline's crop last weekend. I got the class LO done but must find a picture to put into it. I know what picture but must try to root it out. I'm going to do an album for my mum for Christmas so I want to put in a picture of her and her sister when they were young and I know we have the picture in a frame somewhere but we're painting downstairs so everything is dumped in one room and I haven't managed to root it out yet. I also got another 2 done for the album, one at the crop and one today but I must ask my Nan for some details for journalling and titles so I haven't taken pictures of them yet.
This is the other one I got done at the crop. It's my nephew Matthew (surprise, surprise!) having a little snooze. The papers are October Afternoon I think, they're from one of the Scraproom kits.
This card is one of those tri fold triangle ones, and I used the word circle tutorial posted over on CS. Used the craftrobo to cut out the cricles and scallops. BTW, Its straight IRL.
I did this Tilda for a challenge. I wanted to do something a bit different with Tilda. I sent it to Kiki for her birthday.
Think this is missing something.

This is a card I made for my BF's aunt. She has Down's Syndrome and goes to a group called CASA. They meet every week and her 'boyfriend' there makes cards for her every so often. My BF's mum asked me to make some for her to give to him the next time so this is one I did

I got an order for these 2 wedding cards (I know they're both almost the same but the couples don't know each other)
October is busy in our house because both of my brothers and I have our birthdays and Mum and Dad's Anniversary is coming up too. Here are the cards I made for the two boys.
I did this photo frame/LO type thing for my oldest brother too.
It's in one of those 'frameless' glass frames IYKWIM.
Have done a little bit of scrapping too.
I've been wanting to scrap this photo for ages and finally got it done. I like the LO but not 100% happy with the journalling. It's stuck on with repositionable Herma though so i might change it yet.
I had this LO almost done when I saw Sketch 20 over on Creative Scrappers. It really fits the Sketch so I must post it over there too.
Have another LO done too but no journalling on it yet so I'll hold up on posting it 'til it's all done.
