I have just come back from Docrafts yearly conference and what a lovely time we had. There are so many new products in the pipe line but, if I told you I would have to kill you. All I can say is save your pennies. I need it all so must have a sort out of my crafty bits and bobs.
I have been writing up instructions for The Quadrupal Twisted Easel and The Portabello Rd card I have in the magazine.
So pop over to WWW.bespokecardsandmore.blogspot.com Happy crafting am having a few days off now but will put some more cards next week. xx

Love this loop there are so many beautiful things to work with. This Micheal Powell stamp has been water coloured and mounted on the paper from the small 4x6 pack.
There are 15 images in the 4x6 Micheal Powell pack so a really good value pack. and great if you are trying to make flat cards for posting.It's really hard to see in this photo but I have embossed the scallop square and inked it. All the layers have been gutted because I am tight.
The background of this card has been handmade using the key outline stickers and dye based ink. I then embossed a section of boofle buttons and inked in black and then distressed the edge with brown. The decoupage was from the ultimate die cut pack. What a bargain that is!!!! Finished off with 3D gloss.
A Jak Heath inspired card with glossy boots.
Oh I do like this one Lucy Cromwell and hidden ribbon.
Peep hole card and more glossy boots. this one also has a hand cut mount to the tag.And last but not least is an easel card made using the Lincoln Linen papers and a Lucy Cromwell image more 3D gloss. Watch out for those big bloomers they are lovely and will work so well with previous big bloomers.
Call back soon as I have tons more to photograph when the sun comes out.

So finally I can spill the beans now Creativity has gone live. I have been working on my first ever magazine commission and this is the results.
This portabello rd card was inspired by a card I made previously. That one was inspired by Helen. I love these portabello rd papers and Have made lots of cards and scrapbook pages with them.
This card was made for the "Take a template" feature. Which is a great feature and there to give you a mojo boost.
Embossed cards are great if you don't have a die cutting machine.
