I taught a lovely class of ladies this morning, always enjoy my friday classes.I bought some new papers today too – some new simple stories paper, and I am looking forward to sitting down tonight in front of the tv, and doing some fussy cutting!

Last Victoria Gardens card… I Promise!

Leave a comment

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…..

Thank you card

The weather here has gone from sunny and warm to wet and very chilly just overnight, and is a bit of a shock to the system! Now, unbeknownst to me my sister Kay put a lovely gift of a stampin up colour coach in my order bag ( I haven’t picked it up yet -its at Mums waiting for me) and in the meantime I have spent a fair bit of time making a wall hanging of my cardstock – see previous post, so now Kay is asking what I will do with her gift now. It is still going to be well used as it will fit into my bag, and when I’m at the craft shop I will whip it out to match up my colours with all the new new goodies that I will no doubt be buying! It will still be very well used.I wonder if I dream of a new car whether Kay will give me one?On to todays card. The cardstock is Stampin Up Baja Breeze, and the paper is Echo park for the record. I have used a couple of sizzix dies to make the embellishments, and the brad is from kaisercraft. Til tomorrow…..

This is the eighth card I have made using echo park Victoria gardens paper, and only one more in the queue. what I like about this paper is that all the cards look different, and are all for different celebrations. Tonight I have teamed the papers with my Cricut heritage cartridge to cut the cameo, and added some lace and a flower. Tonight I will be found in the card room making a couple of orders! Til tomorrow…..

This is the 6th card in my Echo park victoria gardens series. I also useed a free stamp that was on the front of a magazine, and silver embossed it, some ribbon, a flower and liquid pearls. tomorrow we will take a little break from Victoria gardens and see  some more male orientated cards. I have finally made some headway in the xmas card making, so I’m glad about that! Til tomorrow….

Victoria Gardens 5

Today for a change of pace we are dipping back into Echo park Victoria gardens patterned paper. Today i combined it with Tim Holtz sizzix die ( a favourite at the moment) and a bit of ribbon, and a kaisercraft sparklet. these sparklets are perfect for adding to the centre of these big flowers. The congratulatios stamp is from a stampin up set called well scripted. I like these stamps too, as they can be the focus of the card rather than just a way to add a greeting. I am still working on my xmas card class as I have had many interruptions as well as an enjoyable day over at Kays, sitting around the table with some good friends and chatting , swapping ideas, and of course card making! Til tomorrow…..
