I have nearly 1800 cricut points and decided to cash them in. Put 3 carts, a lanyard and a car sticker in my basket. When I went to checkout it said Provocraft assumes NO responsibility for any/all country fees, duties or taxes associated with this order. Do NOT proceed with your order if you are unwilling/unable to cover these costs. Not sure whether to complete the order or not. Don't want to have to pay tax at customs. Items are costing me nothing so shouldn't have to pay anything really. What a Dilemma!
Will have to contemplate this one........

Decided to make another from the same stamp range. Made it without a character this time. The stamps still work very well on their own.
Backing paper from Crafters Companion cd Florals 1.

Dad won £1120 on the lottery on the 17th April. He had 5 numbers on one ticket and 3 numbers on another.
He decided to share! I received £100 and my son £50. My sister and my niece received the same.
Oooh! What can I buy......more craft stuff I am feeling!!
After uploading my first video yesterday I got crafting with the popping nestability designs I had created and made this card.
The image is from Digistampboutique.
Papers are from cds at Papercraftworld Jo's hearts and flowers and the background paper from a free members download.
The sentiment is a stamp from Jayne Nestorenko's Patchwork Polly Chloe stamp set.

How would you like to use any design, any size with any nestability die just like the ones in the pictures. Now you can.
This is a new technique I learned today. I thought I would make my very first video tutorial for you to watch. Hope you enjoy it. Please let me know if it's easy to follow so I can make my next video soon.

You need to save everything you do to the computer before you can print instead of just hitting a print button.
I can see why my friend was getting annoyed with it.
I decided to use my paint shop pro programme to see what I could do with them on there.
You can access all the images from the cds but not all the sentiments.
I can't really see me using the disks with the actual programme unless I want to use a specific sentiment. I will continue to use them through psp. I don't want to keep saving every little thing I create as I may not want to keep it. It's a hassle to keep deleting things once you've printed them.
On a final note the images are lovely and there are some great backing papers.
Cut your base paper to 14.5cm square. Use a contrasting ink to add a shadow border for definition.
Stamp a sentiment in the bottom left corner.
Cut your next paper to 12cm x 5cm and ink the edges as before.
Cut your 3rd paper to 8cm x 8cm.
To make the shaker I used one of Chris' fool proof frames from the cd.

Found this template on the internet. It makes a lovely little unusual gift box for jewellery or a few chocolates.......
I'm sure she enjoyed the chocolates better than the card and paper.
Will make this box again some day and make sure there are no dogs in sight!!
A card this time for the men in your lives....
Backing papers and tag are printed from 'Shabby 'n' Chic' cd by Chris Warner http://www.papercraftworld.com/ sentiment was added to the tag using your graphics programme.
The stamps are by Creative Expressions http://www.expressrubberstamps.co.uk/ called 'Fishing Basket' and 'Hanging Fish'.
It's so difficult trying to make cards for men so hopefully this has given you some ideas.

This is Daniel when he was a few months old. He will be 16 in August. Can't believe time passes so quickly.

To wind down I decided to make a card with my new stampin'up 'Lovely as a tree' stamp set I received today. The sentiment was also from a stampin'up stamp set called 'Wonderful Words'.
