Birthday Card - Bird Cage

I have been playing with one of my lovely pieces from Fernli Designs. I used one of the bird cages which I have covered with embossing powder. It took three coats to give a lovely smooth finish.

The paper was from a 6x6 pad called Spring Jubilee by Pink Paislee, which I have had on my shelf for a while. I am actually not breaking into a panic when I am now using my hoarded stash! The sentiment is one of my Stampin Up stamps and punch (see to purchase). This card was for my sister and she has said she is looking how to turn it into an embellishment for a scrapbook page. She has done this before as have i with hand made cards, it is a great way to keep the card. I kept one my sister had given me for my last mile stone birthday for a scrapbook page of the day....21 of course!!

Easter cartons

Thanks to Elaine's demo from Papercraft button, I have made some easter cartons. Being a little ditsy I did forget to take photos of the 27 small ones I did for work, there may be some of the empty boxes at work still, so I may add a couple more photos. This is the one I did for my husband, it is made with some old designer paper from Stampin up, if you would like some more up to date paper check out the paper is very good quality for boxes like these. This one measures 2 3/4 x 3 x 5 1/4 inch.

I also used a Stampin up two sizes of scollop punch and mosaic punch.

Decorated desk tidy from Fernli Designs

I love Fernli designs web site, and I just want to buy every new item that appears on the site! In fact until now I have done more shopping than making, but I have now started to use the products and the first item I have decorated is the desk tidy. It has come into work with me and is very handy.

I had so much fun painting and papering. :) The paper that the post it notes an tipp-ex sits on is a silky fabric type paper, and I have also lined the draw with this.
