A few cards as promised.

This is one of the wedding invitations i made for a very good friend of mines wedding, she had asked me to make a sample card and this is what i made.She and her partner loved it so i was asked to make 75 of them.I used Delish papers and the card insert with the information on is able to be pulled out.

Sorry forgot to turn picture around, a few more colour variations.

I work in a special needs school as a senior teaching assisstant and every july when we break up for the summer holidays, i make a card and gift for each member of staff that works in my class as a thankyou for all their hard work in the term, as we may not be working in the same class the following year. I used my new boo bear go-create die to cut out the bears with different shades of brown for the bear, and then i ran card through my new cuttlebug with the glorious swiss dots embossing folder, then used a sizzix embossing folder-from the thankyou set- and adhered to the card. I raised the bear on foam pads. I think they are quite cute and will be making one for myself !!!! Hopefully the staff in my class will!!

I have just got to think up of a present to make, my sister niki-known as nikig on uks- came up with the idea of making small notepads by cutting a a4 plain and written pads into shapes and making a chipboard cover then bind with the trusty old bind-it-all. I think this will be the present to make unless i find anything else- so any ideas welcome..........

Well off to my craft room to have a play and hopefully make something for a special friend of mine who at the moment is going through a pretty rough patch, i saw a link to an amazing book on uks so am going to have a try and will show when done-fingers crossed i can give it a go. Now i am not sure on links yet so if i just say voodoo vixen linked to shauleans book called SHE and left me completely blown away- then if you go over to uks you will see what i mean. I am hoping its ok to attempt to make a version of it.


  1. Hi ya Kath, that wedding invite is just gorgeous. What a lovely invite to keep as a reminder of the wedding:-)
    Isn't Boo Bear just the cutest, your staff will love those cards and thanks for mentioning the note pad idea I gave you:-)

  2. Not sure if you got the message I just sent you, if you haven't I will repost it:-)

  3. What a cute teddy bear card! Gorgeous :)

  4. Love that boo bear! I think notepads (especially spiral bound) are the most useful pressie. It may take me a while to get to using them, but I love them, currently have 4 on the go!

  5. Love the wedding invitation ... you will have to organize a sort of assembly line when you produce the 75! Good luck
