In Colours - Pear Pizzaz

Hi there, how is everyone tonight? All ready for the Children in Need marathon? Leanne needed something spotty to wear for school today, so I got out my 1 3/8" circle punch, a lot of coloured paper, tombow, a white tee and hey presto a spotty top was created.

I have MIA from my blog for a few days, but I haven't neglected my crafting. I have been busy preparing a tutorial for my next class. I just need one more original design then I think it is complete.

Whilst I had my craft stash out tonight I thought I ought to whip something together to show you. Unfortunately, this isn't an original idea, it is the gift card holder the my SU mum demonstrated at our training evening. As there are lots and lots of wonderful Xmas blogs out there at the minute, I thought I would change it around a bit and make it into a birthday gift card holder.

Hhhmmmmm now for some reason I ended up using Pear Pizzaz and Real Red - do you think I still have Xmas on my mind??

Sorry the next photo is a little dark

Complete with Matalan card :-)

Tomorrow is a Scrappy day with the lovely Jules. I have only known the topic for the layout for over a month - I haven't printed out my photos yet!! Eeek I think I ought to make a move.

Have a fab weekend, will be back very soon.

Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Borrowing is what it's all about :) this would look great with the star punch for a male recipient xx

  3. Like the Birthday variation - might have to do one along these lines (ok - borrow it!!!)
