I'm a Great Aunty....again

My nephews' wife gave birth to their 3rd baby yesterday - a beautiful baby daughter. Maisie Grace came into the world at 6.20pm weighing in at 7lb 6oz. She has 2 older brothers, Harrison and Eddy. 
Here is the card that I made for them.

The middle bit was done on CAP - liking using that as I get more comfortable with it - the picture is one that I took off of Facebook. I then printed the middle bit of and then 3d'd Maisie's picture, the bear and the bow. The gingham paper I had in my stash. Added some gems, flower and ribbon. 

Lovely girlie card!!

Craft Artist Professional

I have recently purchased Craft Artist Professional from Create & Craft. Have been looking at it for ages and then they did a great deal so had to get it.

There is a lot  to learn on it but here are a couple of layouts that I have done whilst having a play. It's my first time at doing scrapbooking let alone digi scrapbooking!! I still have a lot to learn but do know that I am going to have a lot of fun with it.

Update needed

Well haven't been blogging for ages. Been quite busy and never got round to it but think it's now time to catch up.

A couple of weeks ago I went up to the glitter pot for a class with Jane Gill. We were doing pink cards in the morning and then pink and black in the afternoon. We were also using punches and dies.

The cards made in the morning were made using the Spellbinders die Blossoms & Accents. Also used were Martha Stewart dies and embossing folder. A stamped greeting and a bit of ribbon to finish it off. Various card & backing papers were used.

The second card was also made using the same dies.from spellbinders. Martha Stewart punch and ribbon. A stamped greeting was added. Card & a couple of backing papers were used.

The afternoon session was Pink & Black. These colours are lovely together. On the first card, acetate was used and run through an embossing folder on the cuttle bug. (Never done this before but like the effect!) Jane had sanded the embossing but I didn't like that so I left it. This was attached to a black card matted with pink card. The flowers were made using the die Carnation Creations. Several sizes and layered. the centres of the flowers were used using a circle punch and then an embossing tool was used to form a curved centre. A piece of wide pink ribbon was tied round the card to finish it off. 

The second card was also used acetate put through an embossing folder and then stuck on to a card. The flowers were done using a die and then rolled to form the rose buds. 3 different papers were used. I'm not too keen on these flowers as they never seem to look right. The card was finished with ribbon and a stamped greeting.
