IMG_9550 (Medium)Kaisercraft botanica collection is another collection that I invested in, but have had very little time to play with. I have got a few to show you,based on lessons I did with this paper a couple of months ago, but again, can’t wait to get back to this collection and really get creative. this card… Lilac cardstock for the base card, and some layering with patterned paper and plain cardstock. A doily and ribbon bow to decorate. while I have a minute, I would like to thank all of you that leave comments for me – it is much appreciated! Blogging is a solitary pursuit, and it does mean a lot to me to know that there are a few of you out there reading my efforts! til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Little One 2..


IMG_9543 (Medium)Kaisercraft Little one paper collection – the 6″ pad and matching collectables with a touch of ribbon! I really enjoyed playing with this collection, although i have only made a few cards so far, they are very different from my usual vintage style baby cards. Love the colours! today I am finally enjoying some time in the craft room, finding my chriatmas mojo. It’s all coming back to me! The weather here is very distracting, the sun is shining, the bees are buzzing about and blossom is exploding on some of the fruit trees, it’s lovely just sitting out in the garden feeling the sun on my face! til tomorrow….

kaisercraft little One number 1


IMG_9542 (Medium)A month or two ago I bought the kaisercraft Little One collection, and although I haven’t had much card making time recently I have managed to make a few cards from this collection. Here is the first one. A mix of papers from the 6″ pad and a piece of 12 x 12 paper and some collectables. I added some buttons, linen thread and ribbon to finish.The cardstock is stampin up . I have done a little card making today, sorted a class for Ocober and have been playing with some new stamps. I am going to stamp out some more images and sit in frontĀ  of the tv tonight and colour them in ready for cards tomorrow ! til tomorrow….

Graphic 45 time to celebrate double easel card


IMG_9541 (Medium)What lovely weather we had for a short time today! It was lovely to feel the sun on my face, although it has grown rather overcast now, I am glad to have had the opportunity to get all my washing dried! I taught a full class of 18 this morning with 5 new cardmakers as well, so I was very busy, but so enjoyable! Talking of classes , todays cards are actually a couple of cards we did in a previous class of mine. Paper is graphic 45 Time to celebrate, and they are double easel cards. No other embellishing necessary, just the papers, a fair bit of fussy cutting, and a couple of ribbon bows.Looking forward to this weekend, when I will be making a start on Octobers lessons. Time is flying – it will be Christmas before we know it, and that will be the theme for October! Til tomorrow….

recycled floppy discs….


IMG_9548 (Medium)The other day Nathan brought me some old floppy discs and asked if I could recycle them. Why, yes.Yes I can. Inside the plastic cover ( which I prised open with a pair of scissors) was this floppy ( the floppy in the name floppy disc) which looked to me just like a miniature record, and so this card idea was born. The papers I used were Crate paper toy box, and I made the record player needle and arm from some silver and black cardstock. there is a silver brad in the middle of the “record” and I punched a silver circle for a volume button. The letter stickers are from the same paper collection. Hopefully Nathan finds more discs, because I really enjoyed making these cards! Til tomorrow…..
