Mintay Springtime…

Leave a comment

_MG_0227 (Medium)_MG_0248 (Medium)_MG_0250 (Medium)_MG_0251 (Medium) I made these ones using Mintay Springtime paper collection a little while ago, but got sidetracked with Christmas cards so haven’t posted them until now. All I have used on these ones are the papers ( except for the cut apart greeting) . Just a layer or two of the paper and lots and lots of fussy cutting! I love the colours on these ones! Today i have been trying to clear up my desk a little bit. Even I have to admit there are too many bits and pieces on it so it’s time for a proper tidy. I have filed all the dies back in their place and now I am off to sort out the loose flowers and metals. Hopefully i don’t get distracted!..Til next time….

Kaisercraft Rosabella ..the rest…

_MG_0201 (Medium)_MG_0257 (Medium)_MG_0258 (Medium)_MG_0259 (Medium)Four more cards using Kaisercraft Rosabella 6″ pad and collectables. Again most of the additional bits ( lace, die cuts, frames, flowers) were just on my craft table…are you getting a picture of what my table must look like?…I have a little clear plastic box that I pop odds and ends in when I finish making a set and try to use that before reaching for anything else. All the greetings on these cards were either in the collectable pack or in the 6″ pad. One of kaisercrafts better collections. There is a bit of work to do in the garden to prepare for summer this week, so I am not sure how much crafting i will get done, I am sure i will find a minute or two! Til next time….

_MG_0249 (Medium)_MG_0252 (Medium)_MG_0254 (Medium)_MG_0256 (Medium)Todays cards are a few I made with Kaisercraft Rosabella collection. I used the 6″ pad and matching collectables and as you can see I added all sorts of bits and pieces – all of which were laying around on my craft desk at the time – bits of lace, odd die cuts,flowers, ribbon, and my homemade frames – all ended up on these cards! I did enjoy this collection and I have a few more cards to show you next time, I even did a class pack with this one. This week I packed up Christmas crafting, finished packing the cruise classes, and I am all organised to pick a collection and get going – I have so many paper packs that I haven’t really used yet so its going to be fun going through them all! Til next time….

MIntay Bloomville..

IMG_1586IMG_1588IMG_1590IMG_1592I have had the best fun making cards with Mintay Bloomville paper collection.. I have used nothing but the papers and some cardstock and layering for these ones, and lots of fussy cutting! I haven’t done any crafting this weekend – my son is visiting from Sydney and we had a wedding to attend yesterday. It’s been a busy weekend. This week I am officially packing all the Christmas craft supplies back into the craft storage in the shed, finalising the cruise lesson packing, and then can concentrate on my craft fair boxes..I have to sort through them all and see what is needed in them. That’s me sorted for the week! Til next time…..

An Assortment of Christmas cards..

_MG_0382 (Medium)_MG_0388 (Medium)_MG_0398 (Medium)_MG_0402 (Medium) Todays cards use an assortment of embossing folders, dies and a little bit of older Stampin Up christmas paper. When Stampin Up brought out this range of paper a couple of years ago I loved it so much a bought a bit more than I needed, so I have a nice supply of these cute deers, and the little village houses. I have used glitter paper, and they all came together so easily. This is my favourite kind of card making..little scenes…and also shows how easy it is to combine Christmas stash with ordinary embossing folders and dies. I have finished with Christmas card making now, and this week have been playing with some gorgeous Mintay papers for an upcoming project. I am hoping this week to get a bit more crafting done,  I have got so many papers still not cut into and i have to start thinking about filling my boxes for the craft fair next year!! Til next time….

Assorted Christmas cards..

Leave a comment

_MG_0380 (Medium)_MG_0391 (Medium)_MG_0424 (Medium)These three cards were made with lots of bits and pieces left on my desk after other projects. The top card has a bauble die, embossed background, my Merry Christmas die, and ribbon. The second card is a favourite design of mine – all white, a little embossing,and minimal stamping. The third card has some washi tape, music paper, one layer of a poinsettia die with a holly leaf on top and again the merry christmas die. All of these cards are perfect if you are making quite a few cards the same. Today my job in the craft room is to prepare the inserts for all my Christmas cards… a job I always seem to leave til last! Til next time….

Prima Christmas in the Country part 2…

IMG_1484IMG_1485IMG_1486Here are the other three cards I made with Prima Christmas in the Country. I made these ( and the previous three cards) as a pack for my ladies, so there are six different papers out of the A4 paper pad, a few Prima holly branches ( gorgeous), a couple of metals and some cardstock. They are very simple to put together and I love the vintage feel!This week i have had a break from crafting as I did painting of a different nature and painted nathans bedroom. I am clearly a very messy painter as I am still trying to remove the splatters from my arms, legs and even toes!! Today I am looking forward to resuming my usual seat at my craft desk! til next time….
