This was the sign by the sculptures. I thought I would have a look at it when I had time.

We sat outside the casino and ate ice cream while we watched the red arrows.

Monte Carlo

I went to Nice for a few days with my friend and we did a day trip to Monte Carlo.
There was a lovely park with lots of things to photograph.

Today's idea's

I am more an idea's person I find it hard to finish things off.
I dont mind if anyone wants to use my idea's but it would be nice if they could show me what they did.

Box with circular opening.

1.Cut a sheet of A4 in half.
2. score 1 inch from each edge on each piece to form sides.
3. I cut a hole with a sizzix die but you can cut any shape just save the bottom to use as a support for the base.
4. Stick sides together and add base.

Any problems just ask.

1. Cut a sheet of A4 in half and make half into gatefold card.
2.Score the other half 1 inch from each side and the middle section is 4 inches.
If you want the card just to stand as a frame just stick the second card inside the gatefold card if you want it to fold in and go in an envelope you will need to score each of the frame side in the centrr.

if the inside is 8 inches score on 1 and 2 and 2 and half then 6 and a half 6 and 7
the half score with mean the frame will fold in to post.

I hope to add artwork to the inside later.

I will go and add instructions to the other cards.

Had to try the blocks.

My friend Lorraine came to play today so I had to have a go at the wooden blocks.

1st try

I watched Dawn Bibby today and adapted an idea she showed.
I used 12x12 cut in half.
1. cut an apperture in center of top card.
2.Score 1 inch and 2 inch from each end.
stick edges together I scalloped mine like the card I saw on tv.
3. I added a sizzix fram to the outside of mine but you can add what you like.
4. the 2 scalloped edges can be pushed in for posting.


I had this idea while experimenting.

Made today.

I also had this idea when making other cards.

1. I cut a 12x12 for this one but I cut it to A4 and kept the edge to punch flowers from.
2. The sides are 1 inch and I cut a rectangle but you can do any.
