I'm Still Here and Crafting

Well it seems like ages since I last blogged although it's only a couple of weeks really. Most of my crafting time has been taken up with finishing my Sister's wedding invites. They are all now done and have been sent to the guests so I can show the full finished product:

I am a bridesmaid so they know I'll be there but I decided to still make an acceptance card from me and Mr Crafty Blogger:

I have noticed that a few scrapbook manufacturers seem to be doing ticket embellishments at the moment and I decided I wanted to have a go at making my own personalised ones. I decided that hand cutting would be too difficult so decided to look for a punch or die and found this.

I then designed the ticket in photoshop, printed on card and then cut it out using the die. I really like the effect and now need to come up with a few more designs.

Paper from stash (DaisyD I think)
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Papermania ribbon
Pearl topped pin
Personalised 'Sizzix' ticket
Inking and pen stitching

Off crafting and onto other stuff, as you know I am a bit of a Morecambe and Midland Hotel obsessive, so I was delighted to read this post on the I Like blog which is one of my favourite sites. Check out I like, it really is a fantastic read.
