I'm back with a freebie Butterfly Card

Hi everyone, I know it's a long time since my last post but I had to have a little operation after my holiday and the surgery left me with a very swollen eye so sitting at the PC hasn't really been an option. Anyway it's improving a little now so I have managed a few new designs this week.

First of all this is the freebie Butterfly card - plenty of space to add your own sentiments/embellishments. The download links are at the end of this post. If you like it please let me know by leaving a comment.

The following designs are available from my website
This is my first Christmas design of the year - I intend to add some glitter to the snow to bling it up a bit - the backing paper is included with the file.
 A card for Halloween - spider paper included
A box easel card - the drawer is somewhere to hide a little surprise gift for the recipient - files for the box also included.
Finally a gatefold card with a bracket shaped aperture.

Thanks for looking and please leave a comment if you download the freebie file - thank you

Holiday notice and a little freebie

Hi everyone,  just to let you know that I am going on holiday tomorrow until 14 September so if anyone makes a purchase from my website shop I shan't be able to email the templates out until I get back home.

I'm afraid I've been neglecting my Blog recently as I have been busy playing with my new Curio which I really love. It was a bit of trial and error at first as not all card stock shows the embossing so well as others but I am happy with the results I'm getting. Am looking forward to when the larger   12" x 8" base will be available but using it in conjunction  with the Cameo works fine.
Here are a few more piccies - used vellum on the first one but the photo doesn't do it justice.

 Pearl card used on the following two.

Anyway enough of all this - I have managed to produce a little card topper for you - hope you like it. Download links after the photos.

What I've beeen up to

It's a long time since my last post so I thought I would let you know what I've been up to. On Friday I was lucky enough to get the new Curio machine and I've spent the weekend getting acquainted with it. So far I have only used the emboss/deboss features but am really loving it. I especially like the fact that when you use the pens you can now fill the text rather than just getting an outline. Anyway here are some photos of my very first attempts and I'm sure that I shall improve with practise and get more adventureous.

These cards were scored and embossed and the new fill text feature used with pens.

I used Coredinations card on this box easel card and after embossing I sanded it
Embossed vellum for the glass effect.

If anyone has any questions about the new Curio just get in touch as I believe it will be available to purchase this coming week.

Latest designs

Long time since I did any new designs but life gets in the way of crafting sometimes plus we have been having some lovely weather lately so it seemed a shame not to take advantage of it rather than being stuck in front of a PC. Sadly it's raining today so back to a more normal UK summer !!

Anyway thought I would show you some of the latest templates which are now available on my website. The Step Cards and Popup Tent card have a nice dimensional effect but they are not very easy to photograph.

Hope you like them and I will post a  new freebie for you tomorrow.

Platform Step Card
Window Step Card - I used acetate behind the window to give the butterfly a floating effect but you could just stick embellishments directly on to the inside of the card
 Popup Tent Card - a different popup idea with the popup being on the front rather than inside the card.
Fishing Aperture Card - one for the boys

Time For Tea Aperture Card - one for the girls
