Welcome to your new home

Here are two cards I made yesterday, the one on the left uses the Chit Chat rub ons in Chocolate chip (I should have used the white rub ons as I think it would have looked better) and the one on the right uses white embossing powder.

The set is the Good Neighbors set in the Salebration brochure and the embossed words are from the Bella Blooms set. I wasn't too sure about this salebration set but think I could  use it quite a bit.

The card on the right was made for my son and his girfriend who moved into their first home on Friday. The one on the left will become another sample to add to my growing collection to show customers.

Here's a close up of the card with the rub ons on the ribbon. Very easy to do and really effective. You do have to watch if you use rub ons as with lots of handling of the card the rub ons can rub off.

Many thanks to all those ladies that have emailed in regard to the last post on how to make flowers. I am amazed at where the emails have come from. I tend to think the world wide web is a huge place but if people can find little old Tee-Jay then it really can't be too big afterall.
Happy crafting

Craft injury and no its not a paper cut.........

I have a craft injury so have had to rest up over the weekend. I was tidying up Friday night and dropped some paperwork on the craftroom floor. Silly me leant down whilst sitting on my chair and stretched too far...............hubby thinks I have pinched a nerve in my back. Off to the doctor tomorrow to get it sorted. I have no trouble sitting as long as I don't move too much but walking and sleeping, they are a different story. No missy wants me to go to the beach with her and Dad!
So while I have had some time sitting and resting I made this card. The stamp is from the Salebration catalogue. The white paper is confetti white which has little red flecks through it and was absolutely perfect for this card
If you would like to know how to make the flowers please email me at and I will pop the instructions off via email to you

Criss cross gift box

What butterflies again I hear you say? Well yes I'm sorry it is. The Flight of the Butterfly set was used for this little criss cross box which holds 4 4 inch by 4 inch cards.
4 inch cards are so easy to make and a heap of fun too. This little box and cards was made for a friend and I hope it makes her smile when she gets in in the post later this week. I am also sending her the instructions on how to make the box and lid.
The first photo is of the box and lid
The next photo is with the lid off and you can clearly see the criss cross in the front

Now for the four little cards
