Hope you are all ok and hugs to those who are not. I have had some fantastic news, yesterday out of the blue I recieved a telephone call from a lovely lady by the name of Deirdre from the Army/Devon & Dorset's magazine who had been given my name by one of her colleagues and she said she had seen my Facebook page Crafts by Alison and wondered if I would like to advertise my wares in their monthly magazine for a fee of £99.00 a year, the magazine is published monthly and my advert would go in every month for 12 months, of course I jumped at the chance so now all I have to do is update my Facebook page as have not really been putting anything on it. What a brilliant opportunity am doing a happy jig, sitting in my chair as still having trouble with my back.
As you all know if you have read my previous blog they are having a DT call over at Cuddly Buddly and I previsously made a card but then realised that I had to use things I had bought from the shop at Cuddly Buddly so had to make another one this is the card/box and bag I made with Kim Macfarlane's template and teddy bear plus papers patchwork blue's, coloured the image with promarkers cut out the pram, safety pin and Baby sentiment from a Marilyn die that had been bought for me previously from Cuddly Buddly by one of my sisters as a present, the ribbon is around the box is also from cuddly buddly, the rest if from stash as I have to use some of my stash before I can think about buying any more as I will get told off my hubby for overspending my monthly craft pennies.
this is the start of the box cutting all hard lines and folding on dotted line
the other side of the card has been printed with one of the downloaded patchwork blue papers
Cutting and folding the stepper card again other side of card is decorated with the downloaded patchwork blue papers
Making the box neat
Decorating the box used Ribbon from Cuddly Buddly and pearls from stash
So here we go with the card, box and gift bag which was a last minute make.
I really enjoyed making this hope you like it.
