kaisercraft Mint Wishes number 6

Leave a comment

_MG_2613 (Medium)This is the last of my Kaisercraft mint Wishes cards. The left over of  my 3 sheets of  paper I gave to Mum. This one isn’t a Christmas card, it’s a card for any occasion! I did like the pastel green colour used in this range, and really this was just a corner panel of one of the sheets of paper, with a strip stuck across the bottom and a punched butterfly in the top corner. I highlighted little bits of the design with kindyglitz.A whole new series starts tomorrow! Til tomorrow…..

A Box ( or 2) of Butterflies!

_MG_9829 (Medium)I made these two cards for family birthdays, and I used Graphic 45 Natures Sketchbook 12 x 12 papers. I have done a you tube clip on how to make these super easy box cards, they fold down to fit into a normal sized envelope, I posted one and it arrived safe and sound! The link to my you-tube channel is over there on the right hand side of my blog, ( you may have to scroll down a little bit to get to it). I fussy cut lots of butterflies from one of the 12 x 12 papers. I have spent this morning working on December classes, one more to go and I will   have all my classes for the rest of the year sorted! Where has this year gone? I also spent a bit of time die cutting some scrap card to try out some new dies that have been on my craft desk waiting for me to try out! Til tomorrow…..

_MG_9828 (Medium)Once again graphic 45 Natures Sketchbook , just the 12 x 12 papers with some fussy cutting of the gorgeous butterflies. A double zig zag card showcases the papers perfectly, and is quick and easy to make. A piece of cardstock 10.5 cm x 30 cm folded in half, with th the front folded in half  back on itself. and a thinner strip ( 5 cm x 30cm ) scored and folded at 13.5 cm and 21cm. I will get to making a you tube clip of this fold, but if you cant wait give these measurements a go! Til tomorrow…..

_MG_9827 (Medium) I have had this paper collection for a little while but haven’t had time to create with it because I have been busy with Cjristmas cards, but I had to do a spring challenge and thought this collection…(graphic 45 Natures Sketchbook) was perfect. The papers used are from the 12 x 12 range and I fussy cut some butterflies,added a ribon bow and inked around all my edges with distress tea dye ink. This afternoon is all about clearing my desk to make some room and to start thinking about December lessons! Til tomorrow…

_MG_9112 (Medium) I have only made the one card with this paper collection so far, as I have been distracted with new toys. It is a gorgeous paper range with lots of birds and lovely colours, but this card uses one of the card fronts with the butterfly. There were two images of the butterfly so I fussy cut the second one and popped it on top of the first. I had very good news this morning..I am teaching card making on a cruise to Tasmania in February. I taught on this cruise this year and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, so I was thrilled when the cruise company asked if I would be interested again this season. Over the next few weeks I will be organising my classes for that. My sister will come along to lend a helping hand and will be a big help getting everything ready.Meantime, I have a few projects on the go in the craft room, so will clear those this weekend if I get the chance! Til tomorrow….

The final Kaisercraft Indigo Skies..

Leave a comment

lots_MG_4654 (Medium)For my last Indigo skies make I did another card and box, lots of ribbon and lace, flowers and of course the fussy cut butterflies. I actually still have a lot of butterflies left over so you will see them pop up now and again on a card or two. I was quite pleased with the amount of makes I got out of my 3 sheets of patterned paper. Next time we move on to a few male themed cards I made – there has been a lack of men styled paper so far this year and so for these ones I have had to rely on stamps and dies!Til tomorrow…..
