So So busy

Time flies when your having fun doesnt it. Its been way too long since i last blogged and my paper crafting has taken a back seat for the time being as i have a new found love for Sugar crafting. I have set up my new business and have not had time to look back. Its really taking off so fingers crossed and here are a few cakes i have made so far

First birthday cake request

I was asked to make a birthday cake for 2 little girls but could do anything i wanted. So as i am new to cake decorating i thought i chose an easy design. The frills were tricky and i broke a wing but otherwise i really enjoyed it.
So behind with the calendar challenge though so going to try and catch up now.

Journal for a friend

One of my friends is wanting to move to Australia so i made her a journal to record her year of getting there.It started as two 10x8 canvas boards as i wanted a bigger journal than the art parts i used previously for journals.These were decorated using Dylusions ink sprays and Sheryl likes green and orange( a challenge in itself i can tell you) I got some basswood and cut it to the right length. Using sticky backed canvas already inked up and  using Tim Holtz ring binder  you have a canvas journal.
So inside i used mostly Tim Holtz papers, Dylusions stamps and bits i had that were appropriate.
I made pockets for photos, tickets,bits and bobs, plans etc.I even made a bag for it which was an achievement as i am no sewer but i enjoyed it.
Then to finish it the embellishments as she is a hairdresser she got scissors, angel wing, key, her initial and the year it was made for 2012.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year and i am on time.
I used Dylusions Lagoon paint for the background and stamped using Dylusions background stamps with Distress inks. The images are  again Dylusions and coloured in using ink sprays.
The journal blocks i use are always leftover papers i have spare.
My theme was always failing at New Year resolutions but i am hoping this year things will be different as i am reaching Forty this year and i do not want to be overweight which has been an issue all my life really at the big 40.
