This is my first post from my new house, all of my belongings are sat outside in a big ‘ole van but I’m here and I’ll have all of the time in the world to unpack and turn this house into our very own home :) The room that will become my craft room is small but if it is of interest to you I can take a few snaps along the way to share how I plan to organise it and let you see it take shape.

Onto today’s freebie, I have a swirly background for you and a background card along with a ribbon edge thanks sentiment square which will of course co-ordinate with the other mix and match cards and sentiments.

I backed my sentiment with some pink paper then popped a seam binding ribbon through the top and bottom of the square and attached it to my card front with 3d foam pads. I used another piece of the pink paper and adhered it behind the card front then added a couple of vellum flowers made from different size layers of the 5 petaled flower from Flowers 3 and some leaves from Branches 1 held together with some large brads.

  • pAULA gALE says:

    Hi Bird

    How exciting – a brand new home to decorate – hopefully cutting and making some home decor using your cutting machine. I think it’s really exciting to move home – however, I must say, I admire you for getting on the pc while your stuff is outside in a van… You don’t appear to be stressed, which is marvellous…

    OMG – I would so LOVE to see before and after pics of your new craft ‘home’ – and anything else you care to share…

    Thanks for the new cut file – so very generous of you as ever…
