A New Year begins....

Well hello everyone, my first post of the year after a wonderful long hot holiday in sunny Florida, well it's just a distant memory now after being back at work for a week :o(  I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year and I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all the very best for 2012.

Well I've made a fantastic discovery this year.....I ordered some CD roms from Fee J Designs after seeing the 'G is for Girls' CD recently and thought what a good idea, I usually struggle to find stuff for baby cards.  I also ordered the 'B is for Boys' cd and the 'Pandamonium' which I can't wait to get stuck into!  I needed to make a baby girl card yesterday so I tried the new cd and all I can say is WOW!  Why oh why haven't I used these cd's before?  I was amazed at just how much is on these CDs and the quality of the images are 2nd to none.  Everything is easy to find and a brilliant layout means that everything you need for each image is held in the same place, this means no trawling through loads of other needless images trying to find matching papers, tags boxes etc etc.  Honestly you must give these cd's a try to believe it!

Here's my first completed project from the 'G is for Girls' CD.  I've taken some A3 pink centura pearl cardstock from Crafters Companion and folded to make A4 card base.  I've matted n layered with silver mirri and co-ordinating papers from cd to match the decoupaged image.  I've punched the corners using a Martha Stewart punch bought on my Florida hol (teehehe).  Joined 2 pieces together and hid the join with a matching paper ribbon from CD.  Added decoupage to one side, created sentiment for the other side using Centura Pearl card die cut out using Spellbinders dies and Cuttlebug machine (could you be without it??) and finished off with some ribbon and gems.  Hope you like the result.
