I revisited Kaisercraft party Animal patterned paper collection to make a few animal themed cards – this first one is a favourite – any excuse to use googly eyes! I did a lot of fussy cutting on this one – all the animals, balloons and the bunting across the top. the cardstock is Stampin Up Certainly Celery and the sentiment stamp is also stampin up.

I was asked to make a retro card for a lady who was turning 40 – this is what i came up with – the colours and large simple flowers were reminiscent of the era to me – I used mustard, navy and red cardstock, some kaisercraft flowers, and the papers were from the My Minds Eye Unforgettable range.The brad was also from my minds eye. Well that 3 days off went by very quickly,and its back to work tomorrow. Still got some crafting done,and a bit more preparation for my 3 day craft fair stall which is coming up very quickly now – 3 weeks away I think…Til tomorrow…..

I made this exploding box for my Mum for her birthday. She loves roosters ( I don’t know why) so it was easy to decide what to put inside it, and Graphic 45 french Country papers were a perfect match to decorate the panels inside the box. I used Sizzix tattered florals for the flower on the lid, and the only other thing I needed for this project was 3 1/2 12 x 12 sheets of bazzil to construct the box with. I repeated this project for a class, and everyone passed with flying colours! It truly is a simple box with lots of wow factor. I have done a youtube clip with all the measurements and a step by step guide to show you how to do it yourself. You will be able to access this here, and it will always be available by clicking on the youtube icon over there on the right of my blog! Til tomorrow….

Here is a teen boys card I made using a scrap of paper from Kaisercraft Attitude 6″ paper pad, a tim holtz sizzix embossing folder – Bricked, and a mix of stamps from Bitty grunge set by stampers anonymous.I distressed and inked all the edges and added a sentiment to the top with brads.It tickled my fancy that the shape of the paper piece I used for the greeting looks a little like those old fashioned street signs! I’m off into the craft room and looking forward to unwinding in there! Til tomorrow…..

Here is a card I made for my brother-in laws birthday. Everything here is from stampin up – the cardstock is Not quite Navy, and the paper is from the Parkers patterns collection. the sentiment is from the itty Bitty banners stamp set, and the flags in the left hand corner are stamped and die cut using Hearts a flutter dies and stamps.Another set of papers I haven’t had enough time to play with – lucky I have some holidays scheduled in a couple of weeks and will hopefully get to it all then!

Here is the last in my Prima Fairy Rhymes series, I have layered one piece of paper cut from the a4 pad straight onto my card and layered a second with the girl image on top, fussy cutting around some of the imagery. Also fussy cut a butterfly, a banner( which I stamped with a hero arts stamp) and added rhinestones, kindyglitz and a ribbon bow to finish.Tomorrow something new. In the meantime I am making good progress with my order – only 3 more to do, then a challenge card, and then hopefully some time to play with some new purchases! Til tomorrow….

Number 2 in our Prima Fairy Rhymes patterned paper series. I covered a card blank with a piece of paper from the a4 pad, and fussy cut a second image from some of the same paper, and mounted it on the first with sticky foam pads. the banner strip on this card and yesterdays card were cut from some more paper from the pad, and then I just stamped a sentiment, punched out a few butterflies and added some kaisercraft rhinestones.Another quick card!

Today we start a new group – cards I have made with Prima Fairy Rhymes paper. I bought the A4 pad, and I haven’t had enough time to really create with it so only a few cards just now but we will return to it one day as it’s great paper.This first card is so simple. I just covered a card base with one corner of the patterned paper, it didn’t need anything else except a seam binding bow, kindyglitz and a stamped greeting!Great girls card done! Til tomorrow….
