Cuttlebug & Pink Petticoat Combos!

After originally being inspired by some cards made by Debbie from MeandLilG I've gone crazy this weekend, combining the latest Pink Petticoat Downloads with some of my new cuttlebug folders. I love cuttlebug and pink petticoat! Anyway here are just a few of my favorites, the rest will be added to my galleries! I really wanted to do some quick cards for my box to sell and these are so simple and easy to do.

Before I forget....

I have done a couple of cards for my friends twins who will be 1 next month. I've gone for the "Doodlebug" look with these. I love everything "Doodlebug". There is a better picture in my Kids Gallery. All the cardstock is Doodlebug Crisscross. The pale green panel is embossed with the cuttlebug Happy Birthday folder.

My Stash

Well a week has passed since my first post, so I thought it was about time I had another go! I've been sitting in my craft room the past few nights working on a couple of cards my mum asked me to make for my auntie's 65th birthday in June. I've done the card for my mum to give to her with inspiration taken from a combination of cards on Nicola's, My Paper World blog. I also made 3 cards for the ladies who work with my mum and auntie.

I have been going through thinking of ideas but primarily thinking that I really ought to use up some of my stash. For instance I have a Papermania Kit I got from QVC last year and I've hardly touched it! It was one of the very first crafty things I bought. Then I opened the draw with the peel offs and there are a lot of them, only to realise that I dont think I like peel offs anymore. I'm sure I'll find a use for them eventually. I dont think I've found "my style" yet. The problem is I like to keep trying new things but that doesnt help in using up my old stuff!

I'm really pleased with this card and I think my mum will be too. I love the quickutz butterfly.

This one I'm not sure about. I love my new cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, but the flower is the peel offs from the qvc kit I mentioned.

I've seen a lot of this style of cards around lately and thought they looked so effective, so I had a go. Only problem is I printed the greeting directly onto the card and then did the embossing with the folder the wrong way round! I've learnt my lesson now, but do think the de-bossed look is quite effective too! You learn from your mistakes....

First Post

Well I've finally done it after months of reading all the other lovely blogs out there, I've decided to have a go at one of my own. I'm a bit slow though, so bear with me while I get to grips with it.
I've finally figured out how to put my images into albums and link them from my blog! it took all day but I got there in the end.

I have been a member of the DoCrafts website since I started making my cards and I have a gallery on there (ZoeRobson), which is where I found links to most of the other blogs I visit.

I have quite a lot of cards in my gallery that I'm asked to make to include certain elements. I'm not always sure about them but I do my best and have a go. I've had no complaints so far, so I guess my customers must be happy!
