Good afternoon everyone..Genny here. I'm lucky enough to be sharing images from The Rachelle Anne Miller Collection again. This double crom is available from Julie here at JB Crafting-Supplies. As I've said before these two cds are absolutely packed with wonderful images and crafting possibilities. The card above features the image from another of the design sets on the cd. For the card I have used one of the toppers, a sheet of a matching backing paper and one of the many matching borders. The greeting comes from a sheet of greetings on the cd. You can print out a whole sheet of mixed greetings..which can be used with all your other crafting. I have just added some flowers from my stash. The topper featuring this really cute little mouse is one of 5 that print out on a sheet..going to show how many cards you can make with just a few sheets of printing.
One of the really nice options on these cds is the chance to make your own notecard sets. If you wanted to, the option is there to make the matching envelopesas well. I have made 2 of the notecards to share with you..both are so simple..all you have to do is simply print out 1 sheet of A4 paper and fold it to make the notecard. What is really lovely is that the image on the front is repeated on the inside of the notecard. These would make a lovely little gift.
I really do hope you will take the time to consider this cd. I am truly amazed just how much is contained on these two cds. So until next time..take care and happy crafting...Genny

Good afternoon everyone..Genny here again. Finally today I've managed to bring along my creations from the wonderful Rachelle Anne Miller Collection. I am having so much fun with this cdrom. It is absolutely packed with possibilities. My first card above features another of the delightful images. I've used one of the toppers..there are 5 differently shaped toppers on one sheet. I've also used one of the matching backing papers. I've only added some tonong card as a mount, some jewels and a greeting. There are lots of greetings on the cd which you will see on some later cards.
My card below is a very simple one actually using what was left from a sheet of toppers.You could easily use these little daisies as an embellishment to the main toppers..but when I looked at it..I thought that they would make a lovely little card in their own right. All I have done is mount the three daisies onto some red card with a black ribbon underneath. Then I have added a bow. I think that this card is ideal to be a thankyou card or simply a thinking of you card.
I hope that you enjoyed sharing a little of this cd. If you are interested in buying this cd, then please speak to Julie here at jb crafting supplies. Well that's me for this week...I hope all your christmas preparations are going well..so until next week..take care and happy crafting...Genny

Good afternoon everyone..Genny here. I was hoping to share some more from the fabulous Rachelle Anne Miller collection today, but as is always the case the best made plans don't always happen. I will try and get the cards on some time this week...as I've said before this cd is a must have, filled with lovely images and backing papers.
So rather than not share anything, I thought that I would share these fantastic images from the Booful decoupage pack. The pack is available from Julie here at jb crafting supplies. The pack itself has an amazing amount of decoupage in it. It is not a diecut range but I know that many of us love traditional decoupage. There is nothing I like better than sitting of an evening, coffee on hand, cutting out all the pieces.
As you can see from these cards, Booful makes a lovely focal point on the cards. Also another good thing about the decoupage is that it allows us to use all of our stash to make up our cards. You could use whatever you wanted to, to make up a picture of your choice or simply mount your Booful decoupage onto a piece of card and still have a fabulous card
I hope you will consider Booful..he is just so cute and the decoupage is a joy to do. If you have some last minute cards to make..Booful could be the one. I hope you like him as much as I do.
So until next time..take care and happy crafting...Genny

Good afternoon everyone...Genny here. For today I thought I would share some cards from the fabulous new Joanna Sheen cdrom. It's the gruffies and happy hoppers and features the artwork of Ellen Jareckie....the wonderful artist who brings us the wonderful House mouse. One this cd there are 2 sections..one featuring the gruffies and the other featuring the happy hoppers. As most of you must know by now...I do have a bit of a thing for rabbits..so I am a bit biased..lol.
The first card is from the happy hopper section. I have mounted the image and the backing paper onto some christmas red card. I've also added a christmas poinsettia and some mistletoe diecuts and a gols ribbon. It is such a cute image..I hope you like it.
This card features one of the gruffies. I love this image of a gruffie driving home for christmas.All I have added to this is a ribbon and a diecut snowflake. On these cards the images are so good that you really don't need to add alot and you have a great card.
And my final card is also from the gruffies section and features a card that is not a christmas one. Even though there are a few christmas images on here...predominately they are everyday images providing you with a wealth of crafting delights for the new year.
It is a really lovely cd and it a fantastic one to add to your crafting library.
This cd is available from Julie here at jb-crafting supplies alongside a whole host of crafting goodies.
I shall be sharing some cards from the Rachelle Anne Miller Collection tomorrow..so until then..take care and happy crafting.....Genny

Good afternoon everyone ..Genny here. Today I'm lucky enough to be working with the Rachelle Anne Miller collection again. There is really so much on these cds, I'm having a wonderful time. For a start I thought as last week I made a girlie card..this time I thought I would make a card for the little boys. One of the really nice things on this cd is the fact that they have ready made large (8x8) toppers. This is really unusual for a cd. They also have the inserts to match every design and cover most sizes of matching envelopes as well. All I have added to the card is some peeloffs and jewels. As well as the topper there is a wide selection of greeting circles so you can personalize it even more.
Another great feature is the party bags. These are so easy to make and will save you loads of money if you have a party to organise.
Above is the girlie one...made to match last weeks card. And below is the boys one to match todays card. Each bag prints out on 2 A4 sheets of paper and then it's ust a matter of cutting out and gluing. You could also print the inside with a backing paper of your choice by ust printing on the reverse of the bag template. All I have added is a tag to match each bag...ust to add a bit more sparkle. The bags are a good size..easily big enough to hold a piece of cake.a small toy and some sweets. I was shocked to see how much party bags are to buy in the highstreet shops...so this really is worth considering.
Remember..so far I have only used 2 of the images...I'm really excited about what's coming next. If you would like to add this to your own cd library, then please contact Julie here at jb crafting supplies.
I hope that all your christmas preparations are going well. I'm still up to my knees in glitter but I can feel the excitement rising. So until next week..take care and happy crafting...Genny.
