This is the final card in my echo park Victoria gardens series. I have enjoyed working with this collection, and I still have plenty of paper left, so I will still be using it, but after posting 9 cards of the same collection, I’m pretty sure you are all ready to move on! I also used a prima flower, platinum liquid pearls, a Martha stewart punch and my Cricut with the Heritage cartridge to cut the cameo. Tonight I am still working on a couple of xmas designs for next months village class, and then a night in front of the T.V. I think.. til tomorrow…..

The weather here has gone from sunny and warm to wet and very chilly just overnight, and is a bit of a shock to the system! Now, unbeknownst to me my sister Kay put a lovely gift of a stampin up colour coach in my order bag ( I haven’t picked it up yet -its at Mums waiting for me) and in the meantime I have spent a fair bit of time making a wall hanging of my cardstock – see previous post, so now Kay is asking what I will do with her gift now. It is still going to be well used as it will fit into my bag, and when I’m at the craft shop I will whip it out to match up my colours with all the new new goodies that I will no doubt be buying! It will still be very well used.I wonder if I dream of a new car whether Kay will give me one?On to todays card. The cardstock is Stampin Up Baja Breeze, and the paper is Echo park for the record. I have used a couple of sizzix dies to make the embellishments, and the brad is from kaisercraft. Til tomorrow…..

This is the eighth card I have made using echo park Victoria gardens paper, and only one more in the queue. what I like about this paper is that all the cards look different, and are all for different celebrations. Tonight I have teamed the papers with my Cricut heritage cartridge to cut the cameo, and added some lace and a flower. Tonight I will be found in the card room making a couple of orders! Til tomorrow…..

This is the 6th card in my Echo park victoria gardens series. I also useed a free stamp that was on the front of a magazine, and silver embossed it, some ribbon, a flower and liquid pearls. tomorrow we will take a little break from Victoria gardens and see some more male orientated cards. I have finally made some headway in the xmas card making, so I’m glad about that! Til tomorrow….

Today for a change of pace we are dipping back into Echo park Victoria gardens patterned paper. Today i combined it with Tim Holtz sizzix die ( a favourite at the moment) and a bit of ribbon, and a kaisercraft sparklet. these sparklets are perfect for adding to the centre of these big flowers. The congratulatios stamp is from a stampin up set called well scripted. I like these stamps too, as they can be the focus of the card rather than just a way to add a greeting. I am still working on my xmas card class as I have had many interruptions as well as an enjoyable day over at Kays, sitting around the table with some good friends and chatting , swapping ideas, and of course card making! Til tomorrow…..

I couldn’t resist putting up another Echo Park Victoria Gardens card. The die used to cut the flower is a tim holtz sizzix die, my favourite for the moment! I also used a sticker from the same paper and a bit of ribbon and a paper flower. Today I am working on my next village lesson. Tomorrow we will return to some fathers day ( good for male birthdays too), til tomorrow…..

Today I thought we would skip back to my Echo Park Victoria Gardens series, and this is number three. The only extra on this card is some lace, kaisercraft pearls, kindyglitz and the use of a Martha Stewart punch. I fussy cut the rose from paper in the same collection. Today was market day – very quiet there today, I guess everyone was outdoors enjoying the gorgeous weather. Anyway we packed up early and gave ourselves an early minute! Tonight i will unpack my boxes, and see how I go making my xmas cards..Til tomorrow…..

Last night I sat down with my new papers spread all around me, and before I knew it I had created 9 cards. My mind was working on the next card before my fingers had completed the card I was working on! I found this collection (Echo Park Victoria Gardens) so easy to create with, and had to show you one tonight, even though we still have quite a few cards in the queue before it. Here I have also used my sizzix die – flower 3-d, a stampin up stamp, some leaves and a prima flower. No creating tonight as I have a large order from Kay ( stampin up demonstrator – sidebar) to unpack and play with1 Til tomorrow….
