This card was the third one at last months village lesson. I have called it a double pocket card . We made a tag for the first pocket, and an envelope to hold gift cards for the second pocket. The pockets were easy to construct – two pieces of paper/cardstock the same size as the front of the card, one folded down a little further than the other, and stuck on three sides with double sided tape, but not across the top allowing us to tuck in our tag and envelope. Just a button and twine to finish this one!You could make a bookmark instead of a tag or envelope if you wanted – we put our greeting on the tag, but you could put the greeting on the front of the card, and maybe slip in a book voucher if you made the book mark….lots of potential for this design! Til tomorrow…..

I loved working with this new paper from October Afternoon, called farm Girl. The images on one of the 12 x 12 sheets of paper were crying out to be fussy cut, ( that is the little girl with an assortment of animals) and the other papers in the collection are gorgeous and bright. I used a Martha stewart punch,Bakers twine, flower rhinestones, and ric rac ( which I found in my Late grans sewing bits and pieces). in Particular the ric rac and bakers twine go perfectly with this paper.I fussy cut a few flowers from another piece of paper in the collection to finish. This was such an easy collection to work with – I made a lot of cards all in one sitting, and for once had no bits of papers left over ! Til tomorrow….

I have been busy with Kaisercraft Turtle Dove 6″ pad and matching stamps and collectables. six to show today, four tomorrow, then I promise I will stop even though I still have lots of paper left . This collection was worth the money – it’s not often I make so much out of one collection – I usually lose interest or move on, but this paper is so inspiring I could just keep on going, but it’s possible you will all get sick of seeing it! The card on the top left was made using an image from a 12 x 12 sheet,as was the card next to it, all the rest were from my 6″ pad. The stamps that were released with this collection are great, and I have used them on a couple of the cards. Otherwise just added bakers twine, the odd button, liquid pearls, and ribbon to complete these ones. I am in the craft room today revisiting some old collections to make room in my shelves for the new releases that are due out at the end of this week.Til tomorrow….

I feel in the mood for something bold and bright this afternoon, and this card fits the bill nicely! The paper, chipboard and Journalling notecard are all from the Prima Zephyr collection,and the sentiment and Pool Party seam binding are from stampin Up.The butterfly was die cut using Memory Box Moonlight and Kaliedascope butterfly dies, and I used a little bakers twine as well. I kept the canvas keys til last because these are something new I found and I love them. They are Prima resist canvas ( the pack these came from was the clocks, gears and keys pack). Its a pack chock full of die cut shapes, and when you colour them – I used a tim holtz ranger ink pad and a blending tool, there is a pattern that resists the ink. I bought the pack with the birds in it too, which I haven’t used yet, but may get the opportunity now that my week – end has started – Yay!So looking forward to getting into the craft room and playing wiht all my new paper purchases! Til tomorrow….

This is another card made with my Pink Paislee London market 6″ papers, and ephemera pack. I added some Stampin Up goodies to this one my young vermillion stamp – first stamped then coloured with my sponge daubers, and leaves die cut with my little leaves die, and some bakers twine to thread through the bunting. I have turned on the heater in the craft room, and intend to have a long session in there tonight – I am feeling very creative! Til tomorrow….
