Lacey Heart and Sponsored torture lol

Good morning,

I have carefully tweaked my cutting file and now it it ready to share with the world.
 
I created a little heart flower as well.
I have only cut three size but I'm pretty happy with how it cut.
I have put the cutting file in my Downloads tab.

Please notify my if there are any issues with the file.

I would love to see your creations.

I'll have my card creation with my Lacey Heart ready to share when I get back from my daughters sponsored walk


A couple of friends who were supposed to be doing it with her pulled out, so my husband and I are joining her instead......

Cutting file not quite right

Morning my lovelys,

I must apologise for not uopdating my blog sooner.

For those of you waiting for the cutting file I was designing

I'm afraid it didn't cut as well as I hoped and I am just fixing the issues I had. I want it to be fully size adjustable and it wasn't. I had made one of the lacey internal hearts too thin, which meant if you reduced the size it just didn't work.

Hopefully my tweaks today will mean it is adjustable and if so and if it cuts well, then I will upload it and and blog it in the morning.

I really can't believe it's almost March already.

Quick update on our house, the builder=contractor promised to get the plumber to put our radiator in next week, as well as our replcement window sill. Woohoo.

Back soon

A quick update

So this week has been totally mental. I've finished work late most of the week and been to tired to bother attempting anything.

BUT TODAY

I have nearly completed an new Scan'n'Cut cutting file, "Lacey Heart", which I just need to send to my machine. If the cut is good then I will share it in my download section for you all to try. 
(Not before 7pm GMT)

I have also been out on my bike for the first time since I fell down the stairs and injured my lower back. And here is my first attempt


It's not very far but I put a bit of effort in. Definitely need to swap seats, my back isn't too keen on my old one.

Say it with Words

I hope you week has been as invigorating as mine. Busy, busy, busy...work, parents evening, pattern designing and of course card-making.
I might have to ban birthdays for a couple of weeks....exhausting 😁 

So we have a fabulous challenge for you this week over at Fab'n'Funky Challenges.

Our challenge this week is  

Valentines - "Say it with Words"
(your project must contain words or a sentiment)

Our Fabulous sponsor is

Bio about this relatively young company:
Mama Makes is all about preserving memories and sending positivity through crafting. These stamps are perfect for cardmaking, journaling and scrapbooks. They are a perfect combination of modern, quirky and the perfect size for a multitude of projects. Mama Makes originally started as a craft blog in 2014, while Loti was on maternity leave. On Mother’s Day 2017, Mama Makes opened as a store selling Loti’s designs as photopolymer stamps. You might have seen the stamps as part of Katie Skilton and Paula Pascual’s demos on Hochanda or maybe in Papercrafter and Die Cutting Essentials magazine!
Loti Maria has been creative ever since she was a small girl watching Art Attack in her bedroom! This passion evolved over the years and was reignited when she was on maternity leave with her son, Charlie and found herself watching craft shopping television.
She then went onto work in craft shopping television and one day was offered something she couldn’t refuse, a chance to make her doodles, into photopolymer stamps, to sell. The rest is history!


 Now for the sharing part, I have gone for a simply understated look.
The image and text are from Mama Makes, I used foampads on the figures but simply glued the sentiment to the ribbon. 
The background paper I discovered in the back of my understair cupboard only the other day (no idea where I got it or how long ago). 
The flower is a few die-cuts, differing sizes, which I coloured using Promarkers (Satin & Blush). 
The stripy ribbon I found in the bottom of my ribbon bag, seemed almost made for this paper so I just had to use it. 
Of course not forgetting the little wooden Dove.

I have made myself a promise to start using up some of my older stash at every opportunity...not sure how long that will last 😉

 Back soon with more sharing
Don't forget to visit our lovely design team and leave some love.
