Say cheese please

Well I hope you are all enjoying this good friday morning, I was going to show you lovely makes from my class yesterday but I got there and the camera refused to work (my fault didn't realise it needed charging).

Instead I'm going to show you a card I made for a swap session I had with some fellow demonstrators

I really must change that grid paper lol, This uses the honey comb embossing folder,.  It's not very clear on the picture but I've stamped little bees in some of the hexagons, I've also used those lovely build a brads from the new spring mini catalogue.

And heres the inside

Hope these colours make you feel a little bit more spring like.

Happy crafting

Breaking News! Tropical Sun!!

lol I'm lying like a cheap rug of course no sun just a thick blanket of the white stuff here in deepest darkest Yorkshire.

Today I'm sharing a little bag I made.

Scott got invited to one of his classmates parties this week and as it was a little girl I made this and a little butterfly necklace to go inside it.  It's not very often that I get to go girly lol.

So I've made this using the Petite Purse Bigs L Die.  I've used so saffron card and stamped a flower from the secret garden stamp set also in so saffron.  I then puched a little butterfly from the time for tea papers and added a few pearls.  I hope she liked it.

Don't forget if you would like any of the items I've used here please email me at to place your order.

Where is it? Where has Spring Gone?  Currently we have sleet and it's mighty cold.  Brrrrr

So I guess I'll have to bring you spring by way of a card

Just looks at my mucky grid paper!!! lol don't want to throw it though as I've made notes on it.  What I should do is get a note book.  Well as you can see I've used the Papillon Potpourri  set for this card, the colour used are, so saffron, midnight muse, tempting turquoise, so many colours and not enough time. lol

Heres the inside

Don't you feel so much more spring like now lol.

Easter rumblings

I am sorry for my absence but we've been quite busy here in the Keating household lol.  I'm glad to say there is no snow here YET!

Anyhoo on with todays make, which uses the milk carton die.

Scotty too hotty isn't a great fan of the old easter egg so we buy him sweets instead and so Mum has to make something easter like to hold them and here it is well one of them any way. Milk cartons in their own little holder.

Heres a close up of the holder, I've embossed the handle and stamped around the edge, I think you can just see the mushrooms from the everybunny stamp set.

Here are the cartons again stamped with the everybunny stamp set I've also used the small bottle tops with the paper daises as decoration.

A little ribbon bow and a bit of bling to finish.

Don't forget Sale-a-bration ends in just 4 days!!! If you wish to place an order or take up the fantastic demonstrator offer please email me at
