Just Magnolia week 12 so charming

July 9, 2009

Hi everyone.
It’s been ages since I left a post. We went to the Newbury Artstamps show on saturday and it went very well. We were in front of the front door so we were the first stand people saw as they came in. Fortunately we didn’t put them of!!!!. We sold out of Promarkers on the first day and we sold several packs of Copics too. We were using the Wild Rose Studio stamps See HOTSHOTCRAFTS in my blog roll.
Here is my entry for Just Magnolia week 12 – so charming.
The papers are Pocket full of Posies – DCWV, Flowers are from Poppicrafts, but she’s not going to sell them anymore. I’ve used my Nesties and of course Promakers to colour Tilda in.
I’m off now to make another exploding box for a friend to give as a wedding card. The colour scheme is chocolate and cream. I will post pictures when I have finished it.
Please leave comments as I love to hear from you
Love Sarah XXX

Just Magnolia challenge week 11 Bev’s sketch

June 29, 2009

Hi everyone
Hope you all had a good weekend. Today has been gloriously hot but as I start to type my blog the rain has started and so has the thunder.
Well I’m still shocked about the news about Michael Jackson. What will happen to his children? And Farrah Fawcett Majors too. I remember watching Charlies Angels in the 70’s. Everyone wanted her hairstyle. It didn’t look right unless you were blonde. Sad times.
Well Daniel has done 3 days of his new job. All is going well.
Are any of you going to the Newbury Craft show on Saturday 4th July? If you are come and say Hello to me at The Hotshots stand where I will be demonstrating Promarkers used with the air system and Wild Rose Studio Stamps. Hotshots are sponsers for the Passion for Promarkers challenge
Well here is my entry for the Just Magnolia challenge week 11 Bev’s sketch. As it is nearly the end of term I used Best Teacher as my sentiment and Tilda as a schoolgirl standing in front of a desk.
Please leave a comment about it as I am feeling lonely!!!

Golden Anniversary card

June 23, 2009

As promised here are some photos of the Boxed card I made for my parents 50th Anniversary.My mum is a card maker too so I wanted to make them a really special one. The box was a covered one I bought from Hobbycraft. It was reduced to 99p!!!
The papers I think are DCWV. The front stamped image is Hanglar and Stanglar and the stamped sentiments are Tim Holtz and Anna Griffin. The poems were free of the internet by Joanna Fuchs. There are several to choose from, so I just picked the most appropriate.
Please let me know what you think of it.

Second card for the day. There’s s great sketch on the sugar bowl challenge this week. This is my entry. I’ve gone for darker, striking colours. The papers are from a pad by Brenda Pinnock, And of cousre I have coloured them with Promarkers. I have used

Young Love

May 17, 2009

Hi everyone
Thankyou for all the lovely comments on my last post.
Well its rained all weekend here in Wolverhampton and the conservatory has leaked again, the kids both feel ill and I haven’t lost any weight!!! Still I had 2 lovely card lessons yesterday. I had them making cards using the “Just Magnolia” challenge sketch. And some lovely cards they made too.
The card below is one I have made for my Brother in law and his wife for their anniversary this month. I have used the challenge sketch on this card but can’t enter it as it isn’t a Magnolia image. I will show you my entry in my next post. I have used K& Co papers, Promarkers (of course), Lace, brads and flowers. This had been a great sketch to work with.
Speak to you soon

Had a nice day at school today. Then did an exercise video with friends for 1/2 hour. Determined to lose weight.
Made this card yesterday. The paper was from Carolscrafts ( I think) and the image is Magnolia. The wording is a rub on from DCWV.
The second card is with Lily stamp from Stampavie. I have used Laura Ashley papers as they are so pretty. Hope you like them. Please let me know.

Sizzix Card Making Day

April 28, 2009

Hi again
Thought you might like to see some of the cards I made today in card lessons. The first one is a digital image from Grabadoodledo that I coloured with Promakers. I have matted and layered with my new Sizzix Bigz die. Love to know what you think.

The next two cards are made from the Sizzix die also. The lady in the red dress is made with aq stamp from Rubbernecker and the black and white card was a die cut decoupage. Hope you like these too.

Pink Ballerina

April 24, 2009

This is a digital image that I have coloured in with ProMarkers of a manga style ballerina. I did use glitter on the ruffles, but it doesn’t really show up. I quite like the layered effect. I thought it would be nice to have the image in a different colour to the backing papers to make it stand out more. Hope you like it. Sarah XXX
