Hi everyone thought I would drop in today to share some of my other Kitsch creations I made for Craftwork Cards for a recent Create and Craft show!  

The papers are a little Cath Kidstonesque I think and I was inspired to make this little apron card (and yes I do own a Cath Kidston apron - had it for many years and still love it!)
 This would be a great card to send to a friend who likes to bake!

Now drawing I'm soooo not very good at.... but I was quite pleased with how my spoon, whisk and oven glove came out - LOL!!

 Now my next offering is a very CAS (clean and simple) man's birthday card 

The other half of the Kitsch collection is this lovely pink and blue colour pallet - here are some cards I made just for myself (in fact they have been whisked away by my lovely friend Elaine who sells them for me where she works!)
 How cute is the scottie dog - he comes in the kit already die cut!

I would love to know what you think of these makes, so if you have the time would love you to leave a comment - I love reading comments!!

I will be back again soon.  If you are off to Ally Pally this weekend and are going on Sunday I will see you there!!

Take care everyone and until next time....

Card in a Box!

Hi everyone hope you are all keeping well.  Thought I would share with you on my blog my Card in a Box cards that I've been making recently!  I just LOVE making these cards.  Did you know that they fold flat to post too! Yes they really do!  Anyway did any of you catch Craftwork Cards on Create and Craft last Friday??  The lovely Julie Hickey was demoing these cards!

Julie mentioned on the show that it was one of my creations (yes mine!!) that I had sent to her for a previous weekender show that inspired her and the team up at CWC towers to create some fabulous kits for the show - which sold out in around 20 mins!  I feel so proud about that! (Now I want to add at this point that I didn't come up with the card in a box idea originally (sadly - LOL!!) I had seen it many times on Pinterest and Facebook) and decided to have a go myself!  So here is that card I originally sent to Julie which gave them the kit idea!  This wasn't my first attempt at these cards - but I've attached my first attempt in this post.....

This next Pop up Card is the one I made for Julie for last Friday's show.

I created a little pocket within the box so that you could remove the tag (see picture above and below)

I can't tell you how much I love making these cards!  Now here is my very FIRST attempt at these Cards in a box cards. 

Lastly here are some recent commission cards that I've made....

 They all get matching envelopes here are pics with yet some more that I've made with the matching envelope in the background!

So I think I've shown you enough - I don't want to bore you!  I really do urge you to have a go and now that you can buy the Pop up card blanks they are even easier to do!  Please feel free to email me at sparklygirltina@gmail.com with your makes so that I can feature you on my weekly Focus on You post for Craftwork Cards.  Talking of which if you have any makes featuring the Kitsch paper collection please send them to me as I'm doing a special Focus on You devoted to this gorgeous collection and there is a lovely £25 online voucher to be won - so what you waiting for!

Blogging for me has been long overdue so here I am today with a little share of some commission cards I've made recently.  I've been very busy making cards for people its really starting to take off - and hence the reason I've not been able to blog very much!!

So first up is a card I made for my Brother-in-Law for this Daughter's 21st

 This is such a "me" style card!

Next up are some Silver Wedding Anniversary Invites that I made for a neighbour.

I'm loving grey at the moment....!

In total I made 17!

So that is my little share for today - hope you enjoyed it!  Be back again very soon.

Until then....

Happy Crafting
