IMG_6521 (Medium)IMG_6522 (Medium)I have made quite a few cards with this paper collection – Kaisercraft Pop!,but it’s a collection that  I pick up, make a few and put it away for a week or two, then get it out again. Not sure why, I think it’s because the cards made with this really have to be clean and simple, and I don’t do clean and simple easily!Anyway here are some that I made a little while ago, and most of the elements on these are from the sticker sheet.Today Nathan and I did some photo’ing of cards, and I prepared a class for July. There is nowhere near enough time for me to get ready for the craft fair in a couple of weeks so my posts my be intermittent for the next couple of weeks. but still, til tomorrow…..

Three more Wedding cards


IMG_6532 (Medium)IMG_6537 (Medium)IMG_6536 (Medium)Here are the final three of my wedding card series – the top two cards are made with kaisercraft on this Day paper collection, and the bottom card is a mix of papers I found in my drawer, and prima flowers and some punched leaves. I think the flowers on the top two are also Prima, and of course ribbon and lace used liberally on all cards! Today I have been putting together some Prima doll stamp cards, and mulling over ideas for my July classes. can’t believe I am already thinking about july – where is this year going? Til tomorrow…..

IMG_6524 (Medium)IMG_6527 (Medium)IMG_6531 (Medium)I will apologise for the quality of the photos first thing – we had terrible trouble with the light – and have discovered that morning is a much better time than afternoon for taking photos in my dining room!The first card I have posted twice as neither photo is really clear, but hopefully with the two of them you get the gist! I heat embossed in silver the stampin up marry me stamp, and did some embossing with a cuttlebug hearts embossing folder. I added prime flowers,leaves, martha stewart leaf punched leaves,and a ribbon bow to finish. the second card is a crossover front card again embossed with the cuttlebug embossing folder, gold heat embossed sentiment, and assorted flowers, leaves and pearls to finish. I will show a couple more wedding cards next time – I had to make a few for a commission. I taught a great class this morning, always good to see my ladies, and now I will have to start thinking about what to cook for tea…Til tomorrow…..

younger boy cards


IMG_6505 (Medium)IMG_6507 (Medium)Younger boy cards today, the top card is made with some October Afternoon paper which was forgotten  in a drawer,and although it doesn’t show in the photos I have fussy cut a couple of the ducks to pop on top with foam pads for a bit of a 3d feel. The bottom card was also made with some paper found in the same drawer, and I can’t tell you the brand name as the identity strip had been cut off! This paper had little cute animals printed over it so I die cut a couple of them out with my spellbinders circles die, and I punched some scallop edges out of plain cardstock with my stampin up borders punch.Off to work now…til tomorrow….

A quick and simple one ..

IMG_6504 (Medium)A really simple card today that started with the negative piece of a kaisercraft leaf flourish die cut. After I made my card using the die cut I looked at the scraps left and this blue piece of bazzil where I had cut out the shape was the perfect size for a card front. I backed the piece with more scrap – a piece of brown bazzil this time,stuck on a few flowers, a ribbon bow, mounted the whole piece on a card base. A quick card done in about 5 minutes, and no more scraps on the table! I have finally managed to spend a couple of hours in the craft room today finishing up a few orders, and creating some great bright cards using kaisercraft Say Aloha paper collection and some stamping and colouring thrown in as well.The colours in this collection brightened my day!Til tomorrow…..

A couple of special family makes

IMG_3065 (Medium)IMG_3074 (Medium)two cards today that I made with specific people in mind – that doesn’t happen often ,ususally I am making cards for classes,orders or craft fairs.The top card was for my sons’ birthday. the stamp set is from stampin up ( Guy greetings),as is the designer paper and I coloured the image with copics.My boys and husband run a wrestling company and gym so this was perfect for Daniel.The bottom card was for a kitchen tea,so I made an apron and popped a recipe card ( paper and recipe card by graphic 45 – home sweet home) in the apron pocket.Today I taught a lesson over at the retirement village, and enjoyed afternoon tea with my ladies.My sister came along to help and she gave me the new Stampin Up catalogue so I am looking forward to a night in front of the heater with my pen and notepad compiling my wishlist! Til tomorrow….
