Hey all my name is Samantha, I'm 32 from England. Engaged. I have been handcrafting cards since I can remember from making mothers day cards at nursery to selling them to friends and family now. I love seeing the reactions on peoples faces when you make a unique handcrafted card just for them. I have also been a keen scrapbooker/photographer since I was about 5 when my parents started to foster and I always kept a scrapbook for each child we cared for - which goes with them to their new families so they don’t forget any precious memories of their childhood.

Things Ive been working on.

Hi All

Just wanted to share a few things Ive been working on this week.

First of is a card I made for my Mams birthday which was on the 10th (She got the greatest birthday present 27 years ago lol she was in hospital having me but I didnt come out till 12:01am so im the 11th!)


Papers used were from the RAK I got from Cheri which is K&CO Urbon Rhapsody.
I also used some of my flowers from my Haul from Wild Orchid crafts. The image was a free one I got with a magazine which I coloured in with my markers.

 I was baking on Friday night trying out some of my new Halloween cookie cutters only only one of my ghosts survived and all of the cats died lol the cats legs and tails kept burning with them being alot thinner than the rest of the cookie. So i just ate the bodies hehe. The icing was white with black food gel but it looked like a baby blue instead of Grey and Navy instead of black!!



Ingredients
175 g plain flour
1tsp Almond flavouring
110 g soft butter
50 g sugar


Method
1. Preheat the oven to 180C/ gas 4. 
2. Put the flour and almond flavouring into a mixing bowl and rub in the soft butter. 
3. Add the caster sugar and bring the whole mixture together to form a stiff dough. Do not add any water, however tempting. 
4. Roll out the dough to about ½ cm thickness and cut into shapes with a cookie cutter. 
5. Place carefully on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 6-10 minutes until pale golden. 
6. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack. 


Last night I wanted to scrap but I no longer have a crafting place in the kitchen as we got a new double fridge freezer which goes where my bench was :-( and I am still waiting for Adam to decorate the utility for my craft room and get a radiator put in there as its freezing in there during winter!
So I sat in the front room tv on and the big foot stool I have with my craft mat on top and created the below was quite content but my back was killing leaning over!


 Baby Blue paint was a tester pot from Homebase (not sure if its acid free tho)  Plain white card stock for the background.
 I used alot of my miscellaneous bits and pieces to fill in the clusters. Stickers were from a baby boy sticker pad I got in Wall-mart a few years ago. The White leaf stickers were from Lakeland but doesn't look if they have a craft line anymore - I've had them stickers for about 5 years!
I think this page turned out ok. Still think there is alot of white space tho.
Quick video on youtube of the page sorry i sound terrible im so tired!!!

Thanks all for looking

Christening Keepsake

Hi All

Wanted to share a Christening Bookatrix Keepsake I have made for Laura's little girl (both living with my parents)





Paper used:
Cream Card stock
Papermania Silk Screen Pink Floral Metalic
Pink textured card stock
Scrap chipboard (for a sturdy base)

Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts
Also used silver rope and silver cross peal-off sticker

I used The Glitter Girls - Bookatrix embossing board

I used the Forever Friends Christening stamp

The boxes are from ebay but doesnt look like you can get them anymore there are some better ones with windows now which I think I might get.

The Prayer reads: 
'A Christening Prayer for a Special Girl.
Lord, surround this child with goodness, lead her in Your light each day; Help her walk the path You've chosen, guide her steps along the way - Teach her, Lord, to trust Your wisdom with a faith from up above; Keep her from all harm, and bless her always with Your grace and love.' I am not sure who this is by so can not give credit sorry.



Thanks for taking the time to look.
