New strawberry alpha

This new alpha is as tasty as it sounds. I couldn't wait to use it.

Being that the weather has been so nice recently I thought it might be time to get out the BBQ. I mean it would be rude not to. This year I thought I'd do it in style and make some invites. I have used the strawberry font for the lettering.


I am loving the new Quickutz Dragonfly font. It's very feminine and girly and is a beautiful addition to this baby card. I have used the 2x2 'native american' die for the baby.

Thanks for listening

I know that when I've had a bad day, I can always rely on my mum or my girlfriends for a good old moaning session on the phone. To compensate for this I have made a card to send to thank them. In true Wendy style I have cut out the telephone 3 times in white card and then once in pretty spotted paper, then layered on top of each other. I have finished by adding a greeting using moxie as it is fun and funky and one of my all time fav fonts.

Crafts U Love birthday

What a wonderful day it was on Saturday and a pretty warm one at that. Firstly, I would like to thank Paula and Geoff for putting on such a fabulous event, it was incredibly well organised as usual. I would also like to thank Tracy, Heidi and Lyn for looking after me and Big thanks to Becce and Junie for the smashing cups of coffee too.

It was so nice to see so many familiar faces Justine, Jo, Angela, Sara and Rachel to name a few but also everyone that came along to show their support.

It was lovely to be sitting next to Helen, we did have a laugh! She made some beautiful cards with the Inkadinkadoo Clear stamps. Kim Fees designs with the new Alota stamps were very cute too.

Continuing with the animal theme, I have one last card for you from Saturday. This week I shall be putting some new ideas together. Come back and visit this week.

Best wishes,

Wendy xx

Nellie the elephant

The sun is still shining and I am still crafting.

I have put together a card which may be nice to send to a girlfriend. I have used the tombstone again for the legs and the 'corn in the cob die' as the edging on the little knickers. It wouldn't be a question I'd ask my husband as I wouldn't like the answer!!!

And another animal card

Has it been hot enough for you today? I'm sweating like the proverbial pig!!!!

Anyway, I have another animal card for you (certainly getting my monies worth from the latest release). It didn't register until yesterday that I could use the lion without the mane. She makes a perfect lioness. The card I have put together could be for many ocassions (wedding, anniversary e.t.c). I have again used the tombstone for the bodies.

Cutie Pie

I just wanted to show you that the larger revolution animals could be adapted very nicely to make cards. I love the elephant and she really lends herself to this baby card. I have seen the body made out of a vase but I have used the 2x2 tombstone die (KS-0764).

Hope to see you at the Crafts U Love 2nd birthday this Saturday. I will be using all of the new animal dies and the lovely borders too.

More animal cards

I am just loving these new dies, you've probably guessed that already. In partcular I am loving the cute giraffe. I am struggling to make a body for him but I will continue to rumage through my dies. In the meantime, a card using the train. I did a birthday card a little like this but I thought it would make a lovely new arrival card. I hope you like it.

I am teaching at Crafts U Love tonight and I'm as ever excited. I am using some lovely Stampendous stamps to make some teenage cards. I'll post them on the blog tomorrow.

Quickutz CHA releases!!

Oh how excited am I about the new Quickutz releases from CHA,how many alphabets?!!!

My eye is only the following: Aquarius, Dragonfly and Moonlight

I can't help thinking that I'm going to 'need' the new Revoluation Love as well when it comes onto the market this autumn. This tool is not only motorised but it has a massive 9 inch opening. The possibilities are endless and my mind is working overtime at the moment. It will also be compatible with all dies currently on the market. I think this is a sensible thing for Quickutz to do.

Oh well, I will have to contain myself for a little longer but it's not going to be easy.

My weekend

Have spent the weekend crafting again. I'm rapidly trying to get some samples together for the CUL birthday on 26th July.

I spent a few hours at Craft You Love yesterday afternoon watching Kim Fee with the lovely Sarah Kay stamps. Kim made some really smashing cards with these stamps and I admire her patience with the decoupage.

I'm attaching another sample card. I managed to make my lion topper into a card that would be ideal for a young childs birthday. Back to crafting.....

Animal mad!!!

I thought it was about time I updated my blog as I have omitted to do so in the last few months (ahem!!!). Anyway, I am just loving the new Quickutz releases. I have to say they have really pulled it out of the bag on this ocassion. Was a tad disappointed that only the heads were on offer but I must add that the cat die (KS-0528) is a very good body substitute for both the lion and elephant. Anyway, I am attaching some samples, a couple I did at Crafts U Love on an evening class and the other I am beginning to prep for the Crafts U Love birthday day (26th July).

Hope to be posting more samples soon
