Camera has been replaced so here goes...

...Yes indeed, my camera problem has been solved (for now at least) and I've had a replacement one. So, here are a couple of quick and easy projects I've been working on.

Had a play around again with Microsoft Publisher with some Cuddly Buddly downloads and managed to create these simple swinging cards simply by creating a four columned table and filling each cell with backing papers. Both the card and image are printed out on an A4 page which means there's not much waste at all. The great thing is that I now have a template and can simply change the papers and images to suit whatever I need. Think the Cosy Dayz may be next for this treatment as it is my all time favourite set especially at Christmas time (so I may start early this year lol).

This pic shows the card in one piece so to speak. I simply cut around half the frame (the part with a different backing) and then decoupaged the cow on top.


The second is a really simple pillow box I made with my Sizzix Die and some Elzybells stamps - less if definetly more with these I think as I love the simplicity of them and think it's quite striking.
