Golfing Good Luck!

Happy Monday!
Hope you had a good weekend.
Mine was slightly strange as the house is so very quiet!
The boys flew to Indonesia on saturday ready for the World Champs today.
Good Luck Ossian!

Laura has asked us to alter a cricut cut for this week's BBTB2. challenge.

It was the perfect opportunity to make a Good Luck card for Ossian.

I nearly always alter my cricut cuts ...inking, embossing, doodling or glossy accents.
(And that's just this!) Personally I think it brings the cuts to life.

A side view to show the dimension and  inside.

I chose yellow to represent sand and blue the water.

I curled the flag for movement.

The sentiment is from My Guy by Paper Smooches.
Wild Card 2 for the card at 5" and phrase at 2".
Create a Critter2 at 4" for the flag and green.

I have made a card for Oss to open each day whilst he is away with some 'Mum' encouragement in!
Just didn't have time to take photos . If the mini cards make it home I will share.

I hope you check out my fabulous DT sisters and find time to play along with us over at BBTB2.

Thanks for visiting.

Shaker Baby!

Hi Everyone, how are you on this sunny Monday morning?
It's time for a new challenge over at BBTB2 and our talented Susan has asked us to use a cricut cut car for our project.

Shaker cards seem to be everywhere at the moment. It's amazing how things come back around again. I used to make these years ago and they are so easy and effective.

I used Nate's Abcs for the card and Art Philosophy at 5" for the card and frame.

With the age of diecutting both electric and manual it makes shaker cards a doddle!

There's lots of motoring fun from my DT sisters so do check them out and come and join in the fun.

Thanks for looking.

BBTB2 - Gift Packaging

Good Morning and welcome to Jayne Designs!
How was your weekend?
Mine was busy and fun with the added bonus of beautiful weather and time with family and friends.

Today I am host  over at BBTB2 and the challenge is gift packaging.
We all need bags, tags, boxes and ribbons for one occasion or another.

I kept my collection really simple and let the beautiful papers do the talking!
I like having pillow boxes on hand as I can make them up but they store flat until ready to use.

I used TBBM2 for these cut at 6 and 7". The scoring tool really makes assembly crisp and easy.

The little gift cards were cut at 2 and 2.5" and the ribbons .25" and .5" from Artiste.
The papers are Bazzill Basics Vintage Lace. They have a lovely texture on them, almost fabric like.
The tiny bow is by Mama Elephant.

Do check out all the wonderful inspiration from the ladies over at BBTB2 and hope you can join us in this fun challenge.

Vellum Pocket Tag

Hi, it's a glorious day here in sunny Hampshire!
I managed to get a few minutes in my craft room first thing to play along in the colour challenge over at Clearly Besotted, with my new stamps and dies.

I used Bridal Bouquet stamps and dies  and For Everyone stamp set.

The vellum pocket and tag are both Paper Smooches dies.

I seem to have a Mama Elephant dainty bow addiction and it seems to appear on most projects lately!
Oops! and here it is again!! Lol.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Hope you've had a good couple of weeks.

Life is so busy and I only seem to get time to check emails on my phone! Thank goodness for smart phones!! lol. That said, I plan to catch up with you all over the next day or so.

Today is a new challenge over at BBTB2 and our lovely Jaren is our host and has set a school days challenge....anything/achievement to do with school.

I made a shaped card cut at 8" from Create A Friend and the phrase was cut at 2".
A little embossing,inking and distressing later and a card suitable for my teenager!

This ties in well with our family exciting news.....

Ossian has been invited back to Indonesia to play in the Asian Junior World Golf Championship again in June. So this is for our wonderful 13 year old son who we are immensely proud of.

I chose the 'achievement' part of our challenge! Cough,cough!! ( okay not school...sshhh!)

BBTB2 - Birthday Cake

Good Morning. Hope you had a great weekend.

Today, Diana has challenged us over at BBTB2 to use our cricuts to make a project  with a birthday cake on it.

I used Artiste at 4.75" for the cake and my scoreboard to 3d the wrapper.
The heart and sentiment are both from My Creative Time.
The paper was scraps on my table.

This was for a friend who loves making cupcakes.
Do check out all the inspiration from the DT and come and play along.

BBTB2 - Parrot!

Hi, today is a new challenge over at BBTB2 and our wonderfully talented Caroline is our host.
Birds of a feather is this week's challenge.
I love the bird on Art Philosophy and always go to that one. But what is a challenge without challenging yourself?!

I Used the parrot cut in his cage from Wild Card 2 cut at 4.5" instead.
DP - Crate Paper - Random and silver sparkle fibres to hang the cage.
My Pink Stamper - Tweetie Hoo Puns

It's cuter in person but the jury is still out...not sure it's one of my favourite cards but I like that it is different!!! Lol.

The DT really do have some super cards for inspiration. Do check them out and come and join in the fun.

Hoppy Easter!

Hello  my fellow crafty friends!
It's been a busy couple of weeks around here. 
We had a fab time in France and the weather was beautiful too.
Work's been busy and there's been a plethora of tournaments and County golf matches for Ossian.
It's also been lovely catching up with family and friends.

There's something exciting in the pipeline... will share when I am able to!

I hope you are enjoying your Easter weekend.
Today is my day and I plan to craft, in between washing and baking ready for tomorrow.
The boys are out at County golf so the house is quiet!

Just lately I have been playing with Mama Elephant stamps and dies...I love these.

Isn't he a cutie?

I used Mama Elephant - Honey Bunny stamps and creative cuts dies.
Lawn fawn grass die.
Paper smooches stitched tag.
My Creative Time for the 4 x 4 stitched mat.

I am entering this over at Make the Day Special Challenge - Anything Goes.
They are a fab UK online shop that stock lots of great companies from the US.
In my experience their customer service is good and delivery speedy.

If I'm not a lazy blogger and manage to photograph and upload piccies of the other Easter cards/treats I have made I will share tomorrow. 
If not...Happy Easter Everyone!!
