Oscar Wilde Quote ATC

“Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.” Oscar Wilde

Yes, it is time for another ATC swap! This one was inspired by the Wilde one. I thought the quote was quite funny – and it kinda makes you wonder…

I wanted the image to look like it was floating off the edges, so I made the base out of acetate. That piece of pink card is a page from a new range by Making Memories that includes beautiful spiral notebooks with diecut pages.

The pretty girl I used above had a beautiful pair of legs that I just couldn’t throw away, so I made another ATC, which is currently available to trade:

It’s not really a shorter skirt…

I wanted to use an appropriate quote for “legs”, and narrowed the search down to one of the following two:

“…Apart from having 2 good legs I also have 2 good degrees and it is just possible that I know what I’m talking about.” –  Edwina Currie (former British Member of Parliament, novelist)

“It’s not really a shorter skirt, I just have longer legs.” – Anna Kournikova (Russian professional tennis player)

I decided on the latter, just because 🙂

Have a great day, and thanks for looking!

Pop it up ATC swap

Seashell on the beach

This is one of the ATCs I made for the Pop it up Swap on swapbot. We had to make 2 ATCs, using foam squares to layer the image. I just love how this one turned out – one of my all time favourites!

MM Tag Maker class – “Gal. 5:22-23” mobile

Fruit of the Spirit mobile

I have been working on samples for an upcoming class I will be teaching, “Make a magnet or mobile“. We’ll be using Making Memories’ Tag Maker, punches and die-cuts. Each person will receive 3 tags, ribbon of their choice, matching papers (in a colour scheme of their choice), access to an array of punches and die-cut shapes (like tags, flowers & hearts), brads and a magnetic sheet. Then they can choose what they want to make, and it can be either a mobile or a magnet (or both!). This example is a mobile of Gal. 5:22-23 (“The fruit of the Spirit”). I am busy with many more examples that I’ll post over the next two days.

Autumn teddy “thank you” card

Thank You cardAutumn Teddy “Thank You” card

Thank You cardI made this card especially for this I{heart}2stamp Sketch Challenge, but couldn’t post it in time… Oh well, next time then 🙂
I have to say I really enjoyed colouring the teddy bear! Autumn Teddy "thank you" card CU2 I haven’t had that much fun with pencils and ink pads in a loooong time. I also used my favourate papers by The Paper Loft – I’ve used them (different ones from the same collection) before to make my Autumn Joy card and I think they are absolutely beautiful.
