Porcelain frame

Another beautiful day on the Sunshine Coast.
Today I want to show you an example of a frame I did on a card
using Dimensional Magic. This is my first attempt so it could be improved upon.
I think next time I would use plain cardstock rather than textured as it showed through. I photographed it like this to show the shine. If you want a close up of any of the photo's just double click on them.

Designer flower

Hello again!

This card was made using a flower that my friend designed from another similar flower design. She simplified it and beautifully so.

Hope you like it.

Card for my name sake

I just finished this card for my dear Aunt Marion who has had a stroke.
She lives in New Zealand so I am unable to see her.
I love these spellbinder frames. I also used the Cuttle bug corners.
The flowers are called Liliums. I coloured the inside of them with a deeper pink and then added the stamen's.

Hi everyone!
This is my take on Becca Feeken's beautiful ornaments.
Becca has kindly allowed me to copy her creation (mine is not quite like hers) and allowed me to put a Link to her blog. Click here
Thank you Becca.
This ornament was made using the Spellbinders In Spades Borderabilities and the Spellbinders Grand 12" Classic Lace Border. Next time I will make it a little different so that the back border stands higher like Becca's. They say practice makes perfect. They are so much fun to make. My next one will be a Christmas ornament.

Hugs Marion

Trinket box using Spellbinder dies


I thought I would show you another project that I had entered in the Spellbinders competition. we were allowed to enter three.

I really enjoyed making this box. I was trying to photograph it with a white background. I still need to perfect this way. I hope you like it.

I am so excited. My birthday present arrived to day.
A brand new camera to take clearer pictures of my cards.
As my birthday isn't until next month it is sitting unopened
on the piano. What a temptation. Am I learning patience?
Anyway I am now concentrating on how to take pictures
with nice white backgrounds. Hopefully from now on my cards will be much better presented.


Flower frame

I thought I would show you a frame I did a few years ago

using flowers from floral Punch craft books.

I made it for my Mother who has since passed away.

Bumblebee flower

A card I made using the bumblebee

punch. I was happy with the colours I use for the flowers.

As you can see my photo's haven't been taken with a nice back drop.
The photo's I am putting on at the moment are ones that have been done earlier on. Once the new ones get put on I will be making sure that they are taken with a good back drop. I do think it makes all the difference to cards.

Pansies for Grace

This card was made for my grand daughter Grace.
Hope you like it. Flowers were also hand made by me. I love to make flowers.
