    Mixed Luck - Photos of Goodies added today June 25th

    Hope you figure it out soon if it does help though a couple of months ago I saw a prize draw in a mag for glitter/sparkle stuff worth around that. If I can find it I will let you know which one see if it helps.

    I love the glass topper you made.
  4. How about a tall DL card do half black and half white and add some bright green flowers down the middle. Sorry I still go very simple on most of mine. I did a girlyish green one last week which included pale green backing paper, grass green satin ribbon, darker green card stock and few crystals and a couple of toppers ( mine were ducks) as my sils favourite colour s green also.

    my latest purchase how much do you think I payed?

    I was going to say about £15 as unfortunatley no-one thinks they are fashionable any more and so they do not want them. I think they are quirky and if I cold sew I would have one. They could easily make it look prettier. Also everyone just wants the digital ones with all the fancy knobs and whistles. Go and enjoy your new toy. :-)

    Ok so I am very very excited as my cuttlebug has just arrived. After reading what everyone had to say on here I decided on this machine over the others. It comes with the mini starter pack of 1 die and embosser which I cannot see me using much so quick query what folders and dies do you use alot. I am going to treat myself to a couple (in a week) but was wondering what do you use? Do not want to fall into the trap of buying something that I think is good but will unlikely use it for many cards. Also is it normal to feel like you are forcing the cuttlebug when using it? Thanks

    Thanks for all your tips. I havent bought any yet as I treated myself to some promarkers instead. I have been eyeing up the nestabilities as I have seen then used a lot b people on here and I am not very good at cutting panels out for layering. Even a square seems to end up wonky. I think I will be getting the devine swirl and dots one as well as I do feel I could use them a lot and thinks they look nice. I also like the swirl one for me wedding invites when I get round to doing them (I do have ages to go though so no rush). I will look on ebay for he nesties I think once I am ready to buy them. I am having to keep off there though as I am getting addicted to buying all the different craft stuff and my bank balance and h2b is not amused. lol ;-P

    Present Fairy

    Yes I love the fairies. You can do so much with them and they work for all ages. I made a fairy card last night for my friends daughter. Though its not just the fairies of theirs I love most of their designs. Whenever I see their adverts in magazines im almost drooling. lol

    Classy DIY wedding invite tips plz???

    With wedding invites quite often less is more. You have a fab colour scheme and one that is easy to follow through the whole day. I would be tempted to just have cream hammered cards with some red satin ribbon with a diamante buckle on it. If you are having bridesmaid who are wearing 50's style dresses you could match the fabric up with them and if the dresses or your dress is having a buckle at the waist get one in the same shape. Then just stamp and emboss WEDDING INVITATION on it. It would be not too time consuming, very economical and looks fab.
