BBTB2 Butterfly

Happy Monday!
Is it me or is this year flying?

Today is another new challenge over at BBTB2.
Melanie asked us to use a butterfly cut...

A very clean and simple card from me.

I used Creative cards and cut everything at 4.5".
Added some white enameling for texture.
The DP is Bo Bunny Double Dot & Avery Elle(love) - Brights

My DT sister's  have lots of fluttering inspiration to amaze you with, so do call by and check them out.

Have a great week.

Happy Birthday Dad!

Hi, hope you had a fab weekend.
Saturday was Hubby's birthday and yesterday was our anniversary.
Slightly less celebrating than anticipated as Ossian collapsed with stomach pains - suspected appendicitis! He's doing ok at the moment.

Today is my Dad's 80th Birthday and as you read this I will be helping throw him a party.
This week over at BBTB2 Mayra asked us to celebrate cricut and use any cut we like.
Perfect timing for my Dad's card....

The card base is 8 by 8"
I used Real Dial Size at 1.5" for my cuts from Artbooking.

Very little inking from me....shock! horror! lol!

Happy Birthday Dad!

Do check out all the fabulous inspiration from my team mates and I hope you come and join in the fun.

I hope to catch up with you this week.
Thanks for looking.

BBTB2 - Purse

Hi, how are you doing?
Long time no see!

Lots to catch up on...and we will,  but for today it's all about BBTB2.
Diana has challenged us to use a cricut cut purse.

I haven't used my cricut for 3 months (gasp!! lol) and it took a while to find my mojo.
So a very simple one from me this time. The purse is cut at  5" from Artiste and the buckle at 3.5".
It needed something extra, so I added a swipe of white acrylic paint to distress slightly. Et voila!

Check out all the creativity from my DT sisters (great to be playing alongside you Ladies again btw)
and hope you link up and join us.

See you soon and thanks for dropping by.

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.

BBTB2 - School Days/ Exciting news!

Hi! Remember me?!
How are you doing?
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!)
The DT girls have lots of fabulous inspiration for you so do check them out and come play along.

Thanks for looking and a special thank you for continuing to visit me whilst I have been away from blogland.
