Kanban Bella Italiano Cards.......

Hello lovelies,
I just thought I would share three cards that I made yesterday. I have been so busy over the last couple of days I have only just got round to sharing them on my blog.
I absolutely love Kanban products, you can do so much with the kits. If you want a quick, simple card you have everything at your fingertips. If you want to get all inky and messy then you can, Kanban products are so versatile all you need is your imagination!LOL
So, here's my first card using the Bella Italiano Kit ...
I have made a gatefold card and here is the front...
The acetate door I have cut into half so this will create the opening of the gatefold. Here is the inside of the gatefold ...
Next I have made an easel card. I created the card using my scalloped Grand Nestabilities. I used a smaller scallop to die-cut the mosaic acetate...

I have added gems to all the flower centre's.
The last card for today is a commissioned card I was asked to make. It is a 20th Wedding Anniversary card for my client's wife and she like's pink ...

I love easel cards. The Bella Italiano kit is so beautiful. I hope you have enjoyed looking at my makes today!
Thanks for stopping by today I really appreciate your visit and I hope you will stop by next week as I have an exciting announcement to make!
All will be revealed soon and there may even be something on offer!!!
Woooo hoooooo exciting times ahead...
have fun and happy crafting..
lots of love

Hello lovelies and welcome to my product review.
Before I go on, you may ask yourself why I do these product review's? Maybe your thinking perhaps I have an association with the companies, why do I do it?
Here's why......I am a passionate crafter...who loves all things craft! Over the years of crafting I have bought lots of craft goodies, from die-cutting machines to stamps, cds, pens and the list goes on and on. On occassions I have been very undecided when buying things and sometimes wished I could be helped to I really need it? Do I really want it?
So, that's where my review comes in!
I am a crafter, using things daily like all other crafter's so I speak as I find the product's, honestly and  how I've used them and do I think they are good value.
I just like to share, what I use, why I use it and would I recommend you to buy it!
So, here review this time is a fabulous company called
Designer's of original artwork CD's, stamps & accessories.
Dreamees officially became a manufacturer of polymer plates/stamps on 1st January 2012.
Hayley does original artwork and took pencil to paper and drew all the topper images. Hayley produces stamps, cd's, accessories herself as she is an independant artist.
I bought my stamps at the NEC when Dreamees had a stand their a few weeks ago. I have met Carol and Hayley a couple of times now. What I love about the Mother and Daughter team is how friendly they both are, how they love what they do, their enthusiasm is like a feel good tonic! Very hard worker's, who enjoy bringing you fantastic designs.
The products are excellent quality, they are so versatile to make any project you wish to wether it be cardmaking, scrapbook or altered art. You have so much choice with designs wether its stamps or the cd's. An important point too is that all the products are such good value, without skimping on quality. I can vouch for how fabulous they are as I have been using them all day and the stamps have given me excellent, crisp images. The quality of the paper designs when printed out are fantastic.
You can also make as many cards as you like. On the website Hayley says...
"You are free to use them a million times if you wish and we don't mind!"
Which is brilliant if you make large quantities of cards as there are no limits to how many you can make using Dreamees Products.
The CD's are in jpg format, meaning you can use them with any graphics program.
There is a great selection of good quality, great value STAMPS on the website!
I have just made three projects using the stamps I bought. I absolutely love the stamps!
I used these...
To make this ...
I have coloured the heart and sentiments with promarkers, the ribbon is velvet and all the papers are from the cd which I will show you at the end.
My next project I made using these stamps ...
To decorate this...

To look like this ...
I stamped all the flowers onto pink papers from the cd. I cut them all out and arranged them as shown. I have added stickle centres and a ribbon hanger. I am hanging this in my craft room, I love it!
My final project today is made using these ...
I have just used the sentiment stamp from the bottom set....this is what I made...
I have stamped the images and used Wow embossing powders, I also used embossing powders around the edge of the card too.
This is the cd all of these papers and embellishments are from ...
Prices of the products vary but they are very reasonable so check out the website
also they have a blog too which you can find
I hope you have enjoyed my review today. Dreamees is a company that will grow and grow and I for one will be excited to follow their journey as they do. Hayley is a very talented person and she will have an exciting future, and bring you exciting new designs.
I am sure you will enjoy browsing the dreamees website, the service is excellent too.
Have fun and happy shopping and crafting,
till next time,
lots of love

My NEC Shopping Trip.......

Hello lovelies,
Well what a lovely day I have had today. I have been to the NEC the HobbyCrafts event where you can do lots of crafty shopping.
I bought lots of crafty stash, and had me some good bargains too!
I must first of all tell you about the lovely Hayley and Carol from DREAMEES they are a mother and daughter team and are so lovely and friendly, and very helpful too. I bought loads of gorgeous stamps, and they are fabulous prices too as are the CDs they also sell. You MUST go to the Dreamees Stand its G50 to see these stamps. The samples are stunning and you must see the heart wall decoration it is absolutely stunning. Hayley has made it herself, it is filled with gorgeous stamped flowers and is truly beautiful.
I will be also showcasing the stamps I have bought in my next product review which I will do in a couple of weeks.
Another favourite stand that I spent nearly 2 hours at was the Crafted By You stand, which is the Kanban team. Lots of gorgeous goodies, I bought quite a lot from there. How could I resist such bargains and beauty lol. All the team were so friendly, in fact they had a job getting rid of me. I think my hubby thought I was set there for the day, at one point he thought I was going to start demoing when I was chatting to fellow crafter about how gorgeous Kanban products were!LOL
I also paid a visit to Hougie Crafts on stand C19 and the fabulous Kay was doing her fantastic demos. A very talented lady and so nice too, always has time for everyone and you  could see how much people were enjoying her demos. One fellow crafter I was talking to had even travelled over especially from Northern Ireland to visit Hougie Crafts.
I called at the Pinflair stand E01 too to top up on my glue and while I was there they had this fab products called Ice Diamond and Snow Dust which are actually really really fine flakes of glass. I thought I was hearing things, but when I looked closer, its fantastic. I thought ooo it will feel sharp but it doesn't. It felt like crystals. Now you get a better deal if you buy both of these together or you can just buy them individually. I am going to use them on my Christmas cards on snow scenes, they will give such a lovely effect.
Another favourite stand at M10 I went to was the WOW embossing powder, and was it WOW. I got some gorgeous colours of powder and they have some limited edition kits I got Girls Night Out and Sugar & Spice. I also bought some product that you can melt and use in moulds, check out the moulds especially the rose one, it is absolutely gorgeous and will look fab on vintage products.
Also check out Meiflower too at stand H36 absolutely gorgeous embellishments, I got some beautiful bling ribbon sliders.
There are lots of lovely other stands too worth checking out, too many for me to mention here. I just wanted to share with you where I had been today and why I loved them so much.
Here is my crafty stash that I bought today...
I can't wait to lock myself in my craft room and get stuck into using my gorgeous stash!
If you are visiting the NEC I hope you have a lovely time and I hope you too grab yourselves some fab bargains!
Have fun and happy shopping,
lots of love

Sugar Buttons.........

Hello lovelies,
Let me introduce you to
Sugar Buttons By Kathryn
I absolutely love this kit.
It was the Kanban pick of the day last week on Create & Craft TV and I am so glad I ordered it.
It is absolutely beautiful, so many things you can make using it and the kit will go a long way too. I am going to stay with family this week as I have a week off work, Sugar Buttons is coming with me as I will get a couple of crafty sessions in while I'm away!
I made three projects today using
Sugar Buttons....
Pink is my favourite colour so I couldn't resist making my first card all pink, girly and cute!
I have used glossy accents around the edges of the roses and sprinkled with Glamour Dust and then added a dollop of pinflair to the centre's and poked the brad legs into the middle!

Isn't this Prince just Charming...I think he is so cute!

And finally, I love the colours and images so much, I just knew I wanted to create a Fairytale pop up scene. It reminds me so much of a book I used to have as a little girl and I loved it.
I used one of the card blanks that matches the Sugar Buttons kit. I cut elements out as shown to create a scene. I have attached the star bordered acetate to the back panel with brads and embellished with flowers, dew drops and feathers.

Sugar Buttons is just adorable and I wish I had bought the stamp set now!LOL
I can't wait to see what other gorgeous designs Kathryn and Kanban will bring to all of us crafter's!
Thanks for stopping by today, I always appreciate your visits!
I am going to the NEC on Thursday to do some crafty shopping, so say hello if you see me!
Have fun and happy crafting,
lots of love

My First Saturated Canary Image....

Hello lovelies,
I have just made a tag using a Saturated Canary Image that I have coloured in.
I have seen so many of these lovely images, lots of my crafty friends have been buying them. After seeing them so beautifully coloured, I decided to take the plunge myself.
I have to say I am loving them, I went to buy one image and ended up with eight lol. Now, I am not an expert at colouring so I need more practise. But...they say practise makes I will keep practising!LOL
I have used a mixture of Letraset Flexmarkers and Promarkers to colour my image.
I am entering this tag into the
Saturated Canary Tag Contest!
The Saturated Canary Image is ~Thank You!
I have made a large tag using Kraft Card, run it through an embossing folder with a script pattern. Inked the edges and the embossing with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I have embellished with lace, ribbons and gems.
The colours I have used are:
Skin: Letraset Flexmarkers - Blush ~ Dusky Pink ~ Light Fawn ~ Tea Rose
Eyes: Flexmarkers - Glacier Blue ~ Soft Aqua - Sakura Clear Star pen
Hair: - Letraset Promarkers - Putty ~ Sandstone ~ Caramel ~ Cinnamon ~ Cocoa 
Dress, shoes & tights: Promarkers - Vanilla ~ Spice ~ Apricot ~ Honeycomb ~ Saffron ~ Sandstone
Around the image: Promarker Warm Grey 1
I hope you like my first Saturated Canary Image. I have a confession to make, I have made this tag on the larger size as I want to keep it and use it as a marker in my project book!
Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to your next visit!
Have fun and happy crafting,
lots of love

Flat Friends Design Team Card......

Hello lovelies,
Well, it's the 1st of November which means we have another fab challenge over at the
We have a great theme which is...
Dots & Stripes
and the winner of this challenge will receive 4 free Flat Friend Digis of there choice!
A rule of the challenge is you must use one of the Flat Friends Digis to enter which you can buy from the fab POLKADOODLES 
I chose to use the 'Little Red Riding Hood' as soon as I saw her I knew I wanted to make red the striking colour and I teamed it with brown paper, which I chose to match the basket. The paper is some that I already had in my crafty stash, it goes well with the theme as it has lots of dots on it and also in the flowers. I cut the flowers out to create a border around the image, and 'Little Reds' Cloak is dotted using a white souffle pen.
I folded a corner of the card over and coloured with a red promarker and attached a cut out flower with a red bling brad. I added stickles to the flowers centres of the border to finish!
Here is the end result....
I love these images, they are quirky and cute!
I would love to see your entries for this challenge, the winner will be announced on the next challenge which will be 1st December.
Have fun and happy crafting,
lots of love
