Challenge #19 No Digi's Allowed!!!

Evening All,

I don't know why but for some strange reason blogger 
won't post my scheduled posts so have just popped 
on to write a quick post before I head to bed. 

So this week out challenge over at Charisma Cardz is
 No Digi's Allowed.
I love my digi stamps and seem to neglect my rubber stamps
so this challenge was perfect and I found a load of stamps 
that I have never even opened :(:( 
Will be challenging myself to use them.

So the stamp I have used today is called Ballerinas and it's from Little Darlings 
I won this stamp in a blog challenge last year :(
 and totally forgot all about it so when I seen it in the bottom of my stamp box
 I knew it was perfect for this challenge.

 How cute are these 2 girls !!!

Mini Pizza Box

Evening All,

I am really trying to find more time to make cards, projects and blog them
 so I had a few minutes this evening and I wanted to try something new
 so I found a really simple tutorial for a gift box and it's called a mini pizza box 
so I said I would try it out and wow is it easy it took me less then 10 mins to make the whole thing
 and about a half hour to decorate it :)
 I found the tutorial here > Mini Pizza Box

I also recently got a personalized phone cover for my iPhone
 and just wanted to show you all it as it is fab
 it arrived today and I can't stop looking at it :)
Let me know what you think.

I will also be back on Thursday with a new challenge 
over at Charisma Cardz so make sure you pop back then :)

New Card

Good Afternoon everyone!!

Well as you may have noticed I didn't have a card to show you for our challenge this week at Charisma Cardz :( I completely ran out of time and hate to rush things as I am never happy with the results so I am going to make out next challenge card this week so that I have plenty of time to get it made.

So anyways I do have a card for you today yay :) I have had a sizzix eclips machine for about 2 years now and I think I gave used it once as a test for a wedding card sample I was making and it has sat on my shelf feeling sorry for itself ever since so I was browsing on Pintrest recently (my addiction) and I seen some lovely cards and boxes made using the eclips machine and I was also looking at qvc and seen that they had some of the cartridges on sale for under £10 each what a bargain so I bought them last week and they arrived today :) I can't believe it has taken me this long to use my machine the cartridges are fab and I also purchaed ecal to go with the machine which means I can connect the eclips to my computer and print and cut whatever I like it's fab!!! and I feel so stupid for leaving it this long to use it :( 

Ok so here is my card and I have used a lovely sentiment from the eclips all occasion cartridge along with the fab arrow shape aswell :) I would love to know if any of you have an eclips machine and what you create with it :) I got these fab papers with the papemania goody bag and then I seen the lotv diecut poking out of a box and said to myself how fab would it be to put them together as if he is mailing a present to someone so I think it came out quite well :)
