Keys created by cutting a large elongated leaf shape from cream paper, then slicing out spaces for the black keys and the gaps between the white keys. Black pen used to fill in gaps where needed. Then pasted onto black paper. Stardust pen to make keys sparkle.
Purple backing paper.
Curly green corners cut and stuck.
Punched flowers, with pearl gem centres.
"80 today" printed off the computer and cuttlebugged round. Musical Clef in background.
Rachel also had some things to sell on the stall, superb felted things...I think I need to persuade her to set up an etsy shop.
I entered my owl tiles into the auction and sold them! Wooot!
I also won the raffled picture.
It was a good day :)
I am a bit heavy handed with my Stickles glitter at the moment ^_^

They are having a cream and purple wedding but I wasn't really given any other restrictions.
I made 57, plus a few spares incase of accidents :)
Origami folded square of purple paper. Small square of purple paper glued on back to reinforce the shape.
Cuttlebug cream heart in each section.(4)
Punched cream heart in each outer section. (4)
Add stitching detail to both sets of hearts.
"You are invited to..." writting, hand written around edge of card.
Inserts printed via computer, printed on cream paper.
Folded to fit the central square inside the origami jacket.
Purple stitching added to match outer card.
Cuttlebug heart with purple stitching stuck to the back of each purple envelope.
Also included were A4 map and hotel/b&b details.
The baby is a "Jolly Nation" decoupage sheet, the patterned paper is the matching background supplied with it.
I edged the letter with blue ink and then used stickles sparkly glitter over the top, so it has the effect of blue glitter.
Recipe: Hero Arts Stamp, coloured in, tummy area removed.
Cuttlebug circle shape around it.
Glue section of acetate to back of circle.
Carefully create a circle on the back with 3d foam tape. I made slits in the one side so it could be bent into the right shape.
Put accent beads into place.
Cuttlebug shape to fit behind the circle and glue behind.
Rest of card as normal.

I made the bear myself..... I couldnt fine one the right size to stamp or cut out etc... I'm not happy with the spurting milk bit, but I needed something to fill the gap! I'd like to have another go at this card,..smooth out some of the problems! :)
This was relatively quick.. Used the Smirk stamp and their paper..which is fabulous! :) "On your Birthday" was upcycled ;)
Just mat and layer using the cuttlebug and stamping on cream paper and colouring in with pencil crayons.
Also getting some good use out of my Sakura clear gloss pen, and the stardust pen... as well as Stickles stardust glitter glue. I would have all three in my "Craft essentials list." ^_^
Recipe: Sqaure card blank. Backing paper punched with edge punch to make fancy border, or using paper with mock fancy border. Vellum cut via cuttlebug, and circles. Kokeshi dolls printed with black ink on cream paper and then coloured in with pencil crayons. Embellished with flowers in their hair and fans in their hands.
