Hi everyone.

It was our Niece’s 3rd birthday yesterday, here’s the card I made her.


This was cut on the silhouette portrait. It started off as a flat shaped card from the silhouette store. This created the back panel, then I removed the centre turret and cut the front section.


Then I created some side panels, using parts of the original design and added some flags from another file.I added princess Peppa, her name and age and hey presto a fairy castle box card.

I’m sure I’ll use this again as a change of colour combination and some knights and you have a boys card.

Our Niece absolutely loved it !!!!:D

Hi everyone.

Here’s a card I made for my cousin’s birthday.


I cut the base easel card on my silhouette from a free file I got from Birds Cards, THANK YOU for sharing your files you’re a very generous lady.I’ve added a topper, from Lili of the Valley, a sentiment, that has been die cut with a decorative die, some punched daisies and some gems.


I’ve also added some stickles glitter glue to the fairy wings.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi everyone.

It was our youngest’s 17th birthday last week. Here’s the cards I made him.

Firstly the one from his brother and sister.


This card has been cut on the silhouette portrait. I’ve stitched, by hand, around the denim part of the sneaker and added some seam binding for the laces. The sentiment has been stamped in black, using a stamp set by Lili of the Valley, then cut out and layered with some circle die cuts, just perfect for this card.

DSC04882This is 8×8 in size. He is, like most teenage boys, into his gaming computer. Very simple but I thought this would be apt.


 This also has a step detail on the inside and his name. The grey panels have been embossed and I’ve added a verse.
