Make do..

Make do and ..use up your stash!  This is going to be my motto throughout the year.  I cannot afford to buy the latest papers or gadgets so this year I am going to use whatever it is I have to hand.  This card is no exception.  I had die cut these snowflakes for my daughter Suze from the Sizzix dies and using Payper Box double sided silver cardstock.  These have been displayed in the coffee shop along with a whole other host of decorations and now that they have been taken down I thought they were to good to throw away so, without further a do I used them with a simple mat and layer effect, ribbon and the SU stamp and tag punch with a bit of stitching and "hey presto", the cards are complete.  It's a good start for my Christmas 2012! x

A little Retro..

Well, today is my son's Birthday and this card is just for him.  It's not the best card that I have ever made but it is a card made with oodles of love.  Steve grew up watching Button Moon so I thought that I would give him something to reminisce over.
Circles are cut using Creative Memories circle cutters, hole punch to make the holes for the button. Mr Spoon and his rocket are cut free hand with the exception of the circle and that was using an SU punch, button moon was cut from the Sizzix playground dies.  I wonder...can you buy Button Moon DVD's?  x
