Silhouette Cameo Dust Cover

I recently treated myself to a Silhouette Cameo and decided it needed a dust cover (not that it spends much time sitting around doing nothing). Silhouette have just bought out dust covers for them but they are only availabe in the USA, so I decided to make my own. And this is the result! I decorated it with the new Happi Bird Dies from Sizzix, cut out of fabric with bondaweb on the back. And even though the sewing isn't pefect I am really pleased with it. Here is the link for the pattern I found on the internet. You need to increase the pattern in something like Photoshop to get the right size but that wasn't too tricky. Now does my Cricut machine need a matching one? LOL

Folk Art Halloween Boots and Hat - Hocus Pocus!

I've been busy sewing the last few days (don't you just love Summer Holidays to have time to play) and I made this lovely pair of witchey boots and a matching hat. The pattern came from ebay. The pattern is so clear and easy to use and my sewing skills are fairly limited but I am really pleased with the results. It's never too early for Halloween!

Happy Father's Day

Here's the card I made for my Dad! It's made using Nitwits backing papers and Forever Friends Best Of British stamp. My Dad is away at the moment so I hope he likes it when I see him this week!

Shabby chic!

I don't normally do cd crafting but I took a fancy to the Debbie Moore haberdashery cd and had to have a go! Quite pleased with the results!

Chinese take out!

Two little boxes cut using my Cricut machine and the Bags and Boxes 2 cartridge. They are decorated with Stampin Up papers and stamps.

Wedding bells!

A couple of cards I made for a friend whose son is getting married. One card is for the happy couple and the other is a card for her son. The wedding card uses a Lilly of the Valley stamp. The bride groom was cut using my Cricut machine from the Paper Dolls cartridge.

Cute bunny engagement card!

This cute card is made with a stamp from Lilly of the Valley. I made the border pattern with a Woodware edging tool - love this tool it's so easy to use and very effective! The background paper is Magnolia Bubbles.

T shirt flowers!

I finally decided to try cutting fabric on my cricut machine! I was amazed at how well it worked. I used some heat and bond on the fabric before cutting. Then just ironed it onto the t shirt. I'm quite impressed with my first attempt.
