Thinking of you..

2 Comments

_MG_2982 (Medium) I made a card with not a bit of patterned paper which is very rare for me! I die cut a large rectangle out of the front of my card, and most of the decorating happened on the card i stuck inside the card. I die cut a tree, and punched a few extra branches in a different colour ( which I also added to the ground around the bench). The bench is a stampin up stamp which I heat embossed in gold. I added a cute little ladybug to the bench. and die cut the Thinking of you words. Well the man is still up on the roof stomping about up there, he has had to stop and start as the rain has been affecting his working but we never complain about rain so he just works around it! I have a late start for work today, but i must go and get organised…til tomorrow…..

I have a day off today and quite a bit of housework to catch up on, but I am sure I will find some spare time to unwind in the craft room…til tomorrow….

_MG_9389 (Medium)_MG_9391 (Medium) A pair of shoes today! The patterned papers are from my 12 x 12 Mambi Happy pad,and i die cut the shoes from glitter cardstock ( american crafts brand). I have also done some foiling with the Go Press and foil machine ( couture Creations) The Happy Birthday pieces are Dusty attic and foiled, and I also foiled the oval with a couture creations metal stamp specifically designed for foiling. Some flowers and ribbon bows and these two were complete! I have had a relaxing Easter break,prepared all my May lessons, and yesterday Joe, Nathan and I went for a drive up to Mt Lofty Botanical gardens. It was a beautiful day weather wise, and we all enjoyed strolling up and down the paths where we saw the leaves on the trees turning their autumn colours. Til tomorrow…..IMG_0502IMG_0497

Kaisercraft Oh so lovely..not a card!

Leave a comment

_MG_6379 (Medium) My Cousin has headed off to England to spend a couple of years working over there, and I made her this frame to remind her how special she is! The paper collection is Kaisercraft Oh so Lovely, the flowers were Prima, but I have had them a long time, The acetate butterfly is from a kaisercraft sheet and I had the frame in my craft stash. I have just returned from the dentist where I had a filling replaced and I am wishing I had my cup of coffee before I went there.. I am off to look for a straw and then tackle the final bit of packing for the cruise. Til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft Oh so Lovely revisited..

Leave a comment

_MG_6369 (Medium)There is a story behind today’s card…When my son Daniel was home at Christmas he mentioned that a friend in his office wished she could have come home with him so that she could spend some time in my craft room and learn how to make cards, so before Daniel went back to Sydney I made up a bit of a kit for her and this card was the prototype of the kit I sent for her to put together. She has since made it and sent me a photo of her proudly holding it! In two weeks today I will be sailing the blue seas, but when I get back I will send her some more kits. Anyway, I should mention that this paper collection is Kaisercraft Oh so lovely ( an old collection but beautiful)and the associated collectables. For now I am off to prepare tea, til tomorrow….

Kaiser craft Rose Avenue 9…

IMG_0660 (Medium)I only used a little of the kaisercraft Rose Avenue collection just as the background layer, ( from the 6 x 6 pad) and went over the top with the embellishing! I have some beautiful wide lace which I used here, the strip across the top of the lace is from the bottom of a 12 x 12 sheet of rose avenue paper( the identity strip that runs along the bottom), a ribbon bow, one of my resin frames…I am getting low on them now..must find out where I can get them from….I backed the resin frame with a little piece of a trellis die cut and decorated it with a couple of flowers, a die cut leaf and a butterfly from the rose avenue collectables pack. The greeting is from the 6″ pad backed with a scrap of patterned paper. This weekend is all about wrapping presents and quickly making some gift tags which I always seem to forget! Til tomorrow…..

Graphic 45 Natures Sketchbook

Leave a comment

_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…
