Hi, hope you are all having a nice weekend. 

I have made some changes to my blog today, boy, I can honestly say its a steep learning curve ha, ha, and I am looking forward to applying for some challenges really soon.

I made a Black & White card for a friends birthday last Thursday, I used STAMP-IT "Travel Script" stamp & Momento "London Fog" ink for the background, with black French Guipure lace, crystals, flourishes and organza ribbon ribbon. 

Black and White is a little 'outside the box' for me but I am pleased with the result and so was Amanda.

Speak again soon,

2nd Post

Hi everyone,

Well, its been a busy week, it was my granddaughter's 4th birthday last Friday.. 

Obviously at 4 years old "everything" is Princess's and Pink..

Ballerina Tilda

I made her an easel card, using 4 Magnolia stamps (masked of course), coloured with Copic markers, Magnolia papers, I used pink sparkly tulle to go around the edge and Spellbinders butteries. This was a pretty quick make as her party was Saturday. 

I was helping my daughter make the Princess Castle cake on Friday,  I think she made a pretty brilliant job of it too.. don't you!

Its just a quick post today as I have been trying to edit my Blog too and its getting to the end of a long day!

Bye for now xx

Welcome to Sandy's Crafty Creations and my first ever post (a wee bit scary).

I found to my amazement last week that the Magnolia Down Under DT were looking for 2 new members, it has been my wish to join a Magnolia Design Team from when I bought my first Magnolia INK magazine last year, like so many I just fell in love with Tilda.

I thought this was just the prompt I needed to make a Blog, so here we are with my first Creation,

                                                    "Princess Tilda with Carriage"

                           The inside is simple with blank space for a personal message or sentiment.

My card features Princess Tilda from the Fairy Tale collection (she is just gorgeous) I coloured her with Tim Holtz Distress Markers (my first attempt with them) so pleased with my effort, she has Stickles on her tiara, gloves and petticoat. 
I used the corner of "Welcome to my home" Magnolia stamp for the cloud effect on the spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Grand Labels 1 die.   
The Carriage I made with Spellbinders "Standard Circles Large" for the body of the carriage, Spellbinders "Floral Flourishes" for it to sit on, with Spellbinders "Ornate Artisan Tags and Accents"
for the wheel supports. 

I am entering this card in the following challenge
