Just finished this for my niece's birthday in August. Base card cut in centura pearl 300gsm, a mat of patterned paper and then the scroll mat cut in centura pearl again. I added a couple of leaves and some mulberry flowers to the apperture mat (and of course some beads) and it makes quite a pleasing card. I will put the studio file on the UKS site for personal use once I have tidied up my working file.
I retired from my job as a legal secretary just over 10 years ago and was then able to devote a lot more time to my passion for cardmaking and scrapbooking, although I have to say that I do far more cardmaking than scrapping.
About 8 years ago I bought a craft robo and entered a whole new dimension of crafting. I started to design my own templates and have now developed my own style. When the Cameo was released with its larger capacity and deeper cutting I was in 7th heaven, apart from initial problems with the new ratchet blade (which have now been sorted).
I derive enormous pleasure from designing, cutting and assembling my designs and sharing them freely with others on the UKS site (for personal use).
I have four grandchildren, ranging in age from 23 years down to 8 years. I am enormously proud of my children and of my grandchildren. I love being a grandma - such a special relationship, quite different to a mother/child relationship. Crafting has brought me solace during difficult times and so much pleasure.
