Nathan got out his camera today and we took some photos so I have a lot of very recent cards to show you all over the next couple of weeks. The first group are all made using Kaisercraft Secret Admirer collection. I haven’t yet been able to purchase my 6″ pad as there has been a little hold up with availability, so I have been using the 12 x 12 papers and on this first card I also added some ribbon,pearls ,lace and kindyglitz. The butterflies are die cut with Cheery Lyn Exotic Butterflies,and the sentiment is Stampin Up perfectly penned. I am off to the craft room for a couple of hours to unwind after a very busy and stressful week! Til tomorrow….

This card was made a little differently to the way I normally create – I usually have my collection as the base, then gather cardstock, ribbons, flowers etc that I think will go well with it and start from there. with this one I had only bought 2 sheets of the collection – ( Kaisercraft Tigerlily) unusual for me but it offended my eye with the strong orange mixed with pink ( just a personal thing – I don’t normally like orange and pink together) so I didn’t have too much paper to play with but… there were lots of odds and ends on my table from other projects, and so that is what I used on this card and the next couple that I will show you over the next couple of days.The white embossed oval which I inked around the edges was given to me by one of my ladies when she was showing me her new cuttlebug die purchase, so I can’t tell you the name of it, and then I just added a few flowers and a dainty pink bow to finish.The gorgeous butterfly was fussy cut from a sheet full of butterflies from Kaisercraft Tigerlily. I have been very good and stuck to making my Fathers day cards, still a few to go, but I am seriously missing my ribbon, flowers and bling so tonight I am going to treat myself and make the blingiest card I can think of!Til tomorrow….

I love the pastel shades of this new paper from graphic 45 – Little darlings. I used stampin up cardstock – pink piroutte for the base card, and added a little bit of lace, and fussy cut a couple of the butterflies from the paper , mounted the panel on cream bazil and inked the edges with tim holtz tumbled glass ink. I have been playing around with stamps and ink today, I only recently bought a craft mat – how did I ever manage without one? hopefully tomorrow Nathan will get the camera out and I can show you what I have done.. Til tomorrow….

Here are the other 2 cards I made with my Kaisercraft La di da 6″paper pad. I really like the bright clean colours of this paper,and all I added was a little ribbon, some bling and butterflies punched with my Martha Stewart Butterfly punch. the rest was fussy cut from the paper pad. I am hoping to spend an hour in the craft room tonight, I have an order to fulfil, so have a project in mind! Til tomorrow….

As promised we are back to the Kaisercraft Timeless vintage 6″ pad. On this card I have fussy cut some of the butterlies and added a bit of lace – of course! I also sponged Antique linen Ink (Tim Holtz – ranger) around the card and paper to soften the edges.A quick post tonight as it’s shopping night – Til tomorrow…..

This paper is from a 6″ pad called Vintage Timeless that kaisercraft released a couple of months a go, but due to the ammount of xmas cards I have made I really haven’t had time to create with it yet, but I have a couple of cards to show over the next couple of days. there are all sorts of images in this pad, including a couple of pages of butterflies, which I very quickly fussy cut – my favourite thing! All I added was a bit of maroon lace – after all what is vintage without the lace? A long hard day at work today, so I don’t think I will be visiting the craft room, but at least I have 2 days off now and will be continuing on in my bid to clear some space in my paper drawers.. Til tomorrow….

Todays card is such a simple one… The paper is Websters Pages, from the Garden gala range( I think – correct me if I’m wrong) and a picket fence punched with a Martha Stewart punch. A very unfussy card from me today. It is the last day of my holidays, and back to work tomorrow – where did the time go? I have spent today decorating a couple of wooden jewellery boxes that I have had for a while, and I will put them on my market stall on Sunday to see how they go. They were great fun to do, and I will be looking for more of them! Til tomorrow…..

Butterflies are always popular on cards, and this paper by Prima reflections is beautiful. I did a lot of die cutting on this card – I used stampin up sizzix dies blossoms and flourish, and a sizzix 3d flower die. I used a Kaisercraft sparklet or two and some gorgeous satin ribbon to finish.Today i have been colouring some xmas images and tonight I will put some xmas cards together. Til tomorrow…..

Welcome to Number 4 in my kaisercraft Bonjour collection series. I think this one is my favourite. I love the big blingy butterfly and the lovely floppy bow. The only other product I used on this card was a doily die and Stampin up Pool Party cardstock. A new colour and goes so well with this paper. I am in my room today making more baby cards…. I should have kept count of how many I have made this year. I am on my fifth pad of kaisercraft lullaby paper! Til tomorrow…..
