ZESTY LEMON AND ALMOND CAKE - decorated with edible flowers!

No comments:



I saw the first spring bulb come out today and thought, yes its time to get baking! This is a great spring/ Easter recipe and is absolutely delicious. I have decorated it with handmade edible flowers to give that extra spring-like-factor.

LITTLE SET OF LONDON

1 comment:



Today I have been mostly shooting this little set of london for a job that will be out later on in the year! Love it! I made big ben ( see below), the London eye and a selection of other famous London landmarks, all from paper and card. Think this will be one of my favorite still life shoots!
 Took me back to those film days being stuck in an office in Ealing Studios remaking Baker Street over and over ( hadn't quite grasped the metric to old school feet at that stage, obviously all fine now!)

BE MY VALENTINE, CARD/GIFT IDEA

No comments:


Ahhh, no matter what anyone says about valentines day I still love it ( pardon the pun!) I made this for my friends recent wedding present, havent had the opportunity to give it to them yet! ( I am assuming she doesnt read my blog). Think its a great idea for a valentines gift, something to keep in a frame or make a card from.

I did a reading at the wedding and this is a quote from it. It is a black card paper cut mounted on peach textured card. If you want to learn more about papercuts scroll down to the papercut christmas card post below...

"DING DONG!"


This post has proved to be my all time most popular, especially since the recent report that Big Ben is leaning slightly to the side! 


Click on the below pattern and print out onto printable card, enlarging or reducing the size to your requirements.


Glue the corresponding tabs to one another following the instructions on the pattern.
