Today I have gone back to a kaisercraft Paper collection called sweet nothings. I have already posted a few cards made with this paper and I have a couple more in my file. here I used the 6″ paper pad and decorated with Prima flower and leaves, and a little ribbon. I installed my new most amazing shelving unit last night and it is full.. Now I can’t fit another one in my little room, so I am going to have to work very hard to use up the papers I have before I buy more. I think I hear my sister Kay snickering in disbelief…Til tomorrow..

I have called this one number 6 but I can’t remember what number we got up to in the Kaisercraft madame Boutique range. This card has ended up looking like a box of chocolates, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing…. I do love the prima flower. I also added ribbon. Such a busy week, but we are almost there now, tonight Daniel and I are going out to pick up my most amazing shelving unit from a friend whos’ husband built it for me. It has 24 shelves and is 4′ high, so I will be able to store my 12 x 12 papers and actually be able to see them … so excited…. Til tomorrow…

Well, I must say I am feeling a little better today, and actually sat in the craft room for a short while this morning, and created a couple of cards, but I have developed the worst symptom so far this week – No Voice! Anyone that knows me knows this is a disaster of mega proportions -not able to speak… just horrible! The dogs just sit and stare at me and my son jumps every time I go near him – he says I am sneaking up on him, but obviously usually I start the conversation before I get to him which gives him warning I am coming, which is not happening today. Todays cards were a bit of an experiment – I wanted to see if this gorgeous acetate would go through the cuttlebug, which it did, beautifully. The acetate is teresa Collins Posh lace, and the papers are Prima Romantique. I also used assorted ribbons,stick pins, flowers and lace.

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…..

Todays card uses a new paper – Butterfly Garden by Pink Paisley. I only made a couple of cards with this paper because I used the rest to make Birthday books which i will get Nathan to photograph this weekend, and hopefully be able to show you all next week.As well as the pink paisley paper I used a Prima flower, and websters pages lace, and used my versamark pen on the ladies dress, and brushed it with perfect pearls powder – my newest purchase – and I’m loving the effect! Til tomorrow….

Todays card uses Prima Madeline patterned paper and matching stickers, (again – but I do love this paper!)I’ll find something completely different for tomorrow nights post ,I promise! Was planning to sit in the craft room for an hour or two tonight, but I am exhausted after being at work today, so might just watch a bit of t.v. and have an early night. Til tomorrow…..
(p.s. just noticed I also used a Kaisercraft rub on in the centre of the sticker.)

I’m back! My husband and I went away to robe for Easter, and had a lovely relaxing time,with lots of walks, and fresh air, and a little cardmaking thrown in – it actually took me longer to pack my craft bag than my suitcase of clothes! Meanwhile my techie son was working on my computer, and quite a few things have changed – the keyboard, the mouse, and I think I have windows 7 now. Its taking a little getting used to, and I can’t find where he has put some things, but I’ll get there! Todays card uses Prima Madeline collection papers and stickers ‘ a prima flower and a kaisercraft swirl. This week will be a lot of Mothers day cards on the blog – I didn’t know I made and photographed so many. Til tomorrow……
