It's been a very busy week this week, back to work after the half term holiday, lots of meetings and technical jobs to do. Also a nice 21st cake to do in the evenings. The cake is for a friends son, who plays in the Arsenal youth team (so he could be famous one day) asked for a signed photo of him cutting the cake just in case!!
Enjoyed making the cake as I've not done one like this before. Really should of taken a better photo.

Found out about this technique at Oyster stamps. Never heard about it before but liked the idea! I googled the technique and then watched a couple of you tube videos, and decided to give it a try!! So my great crafting friend came on Sunday and we both gave it a go it was great bouncing all the ideas we were having of one another.
We loved the technique and was very pleased with the finished results. Will be doing a lot more of these in future. It's a great technique to use for men's cards as well.
Here are my finished projects.
Hope you like the cards. I would recommend trying out this technique to all stamping lovers.

Went hunting the internet for a digi stamp to do a golfing card!! Came across this website http://www.imaginethatdigistamp.com/store/p232/Golf_Set.html which had a digi stamp just like the one I wanted, so I purchased the stamp. I then had a look at the gallery and saw a card I really liked so I based my card on this design. I enjoyed colouring the golf bag with my spectrum noir markers finding this quite relaxing. Embossed the green cordinations card with happy birthday embossing folder also embossed white background card with an embossing folder. I decoupaged the golf bag. I then punched out some 2" circles an but them around the edge to represent golf balls. The lettering is cut from 1.5" dies from crafters companion. Beige cordinations card was also embossed.

Was asked to make a pizza card for an 8 year olds birthday. Never made one before so googled pizza birthday cards to get some inspiration. Got a few ideas, I then decided it was time for me to start using my scan an cut. Gentleman crafter had put up some instructions on how to do a Half Cut Technique With The Brother Scan N Cut. Using these instructions I made my pizza base have a scalloped edge,got a tomato and mushroom shape I liked then worked from there!! Here is my finished product.
