Card for a Film Lover

Movie Birthday card1

This is a card I made using a Scrappin Doodles Digi Scrapbook set.  It was for a colleague who's daughter is mad about films.

 I used my newspaper design template for the base of the card and then jiggled around with the various elements of the digi set until I was happy with the design.

The tickets, clapperboard and exclusive elements  are simple decoupage layers using foam pads (from Poundland), as is the popcorn box, which I have glammed up with Anita's 3D clear gloss finish. To make the popcorn stand out I have used Anita's 3D Dimensional Glossy Paint. The card is completed with a scattering of small silver star confetti.

What’s On My Desk Wednesday

My desk is very tidy and boring at the moment,  but as I went on a shopping trip with my mate Lisa on Saturday, I thought I would lay my shopping on my desk……
Home Bargains Mini Marshmallows
Mini Marshmallows from Home Bargains – 69p, brilliant for the Bunny Brew Hot Chocolate I am planning to make for Easter.
Ikea Fish Ice Tray
Ikea fish ice cube tray, 99p – I am thinking about using this for making chocolate fish for Father’s Day.
Nuts and Bolts
Ikea Nut and Bolt jellys – 49p, I thought I might make some Sizzix shaker boxes with gentlemen in mind.
Nail Decorations
Nail decorations – very small gems, brilliant for tiny weeny designs – 99p
Pirate Confetti
And finally pirate confetti – 79p – cute silver swords and pirate flags, I don’t have a project in mind – but I am sure they will come in useful sometime.
