Stampin Up Santa’s Workshop..

Leave a comment

_MG_0220 (Medium)_MG_0221 (Medium)_MG_0222 (Medium)Here are the first Christmas cards for this year! I have used a Stampin Up designer paper collection from last year called Santa’s Workshop, I love it because of the fussy cutting potential. I haven’t bought too much Christmas collections yet this year – I am determined to use up the papers I have ( I think I say that every year!), but I have been working with Prima Christmas in the Country and some gorgeous vintage Stamperia papers this week. The top card has a die cut glittery Christmas tree, and the top and lower card have a layer of embossed white cardstock but other than that its all paper and cardstock.- no ribbon , lace or bling to be seen! Til next time….

Kaisercraft greenhouse 1, 2 and 3..

Leave a comment

_MG_0239 (Medium)_MG_0240 (Medium)_MG_0242 (Medium)Three cards today, all made with Kaisercraft greenhouse 6″ paper pad and matching collectables. Nothing else was added to these ones except a tiny bit of bling on the top card, and a gorgeous die cut ( made with Uniquely creative Succulents die) on the middle card. Of course I loved all the fussy cutting potential of these papers!. As my thoughts turn to Christmas cards I am getting itchy fingers to dig out all my xmas dies and stamps, but I am still working on my cruise cards. I have about three weeks of prep to do for them and then look out Christmas here I come!!Til next time…..

Graphic 45 Flutter.

_MG_0198 (Medium)I couldn’t resist making and exploding card when I saw the range of Graphic 45 Flutter..Butterflies everywhere! I have a you tube video on my you tube channel that shows step by step how to make this exploding box which folds down to fit into a normal sized envelope. The link is over there on the right of your screen! I have been crafting a lot this week but its all for the cruise I am teaching on in December. I haven’t had much notice really, and have to prepare 5 classes, but I am so excited to be going on the Vasco Da Gama, and being December this time I can do some Christmas cards! I have lots of other things coming up too, but more of that later! Til Next time,….

Mintay Secret Place 3 and 4….

Leave a comment

_MG_0154 (Medium)_MG_0155 (Medium)As promised I am back with the other two Mintay Secret Place cards that I made.¬† A lot of fussy cutting on these two!. On the top card I added lace, a metal piece cut in half ( the other half is on the lower card and that is a good trick to extend your stash)and the resin frame is one I made . The second card has a little die cut flourish and a couple of layered banner tags cut from tiny scraps tucked under the metal. Seeing these cards again makes me itch to get this paper out again and start creating, but I am busy today putting some card kits together…Til next time..

Prima lavender frost 6,7 and 8..

_MG_0085 (Medium)_MG_0091 (Medium)_MG_0100 (Medium)Today we are back to Prima Lavender Frost range of papers, and assorted matching emphemera. The top card is made with papers from the 6″ pad, and a couple of the 3 x 4 journalling cards. I fussy cut the top card and mounted it with foam pads, and cut a round metal finding in half and slid it in under the foam mounted card. The two lower cards were cards I taught in a Paper Flourish class, using the Prima Lavender frost paper and some foiling with the Go Press and Foil machine, which is how I did the gorgeous rose, ( it is a Couture Creations stamp and foil die). We foiled our chipboard happy birthday for the top card. I taught another class this week with this paper range – just love it!! Til tomorrow…

Three more Prima Lavender Frost cards..

_MG_9989_MG_9991mg_9996.jpgToday I have three more cards made with the gorgeous lavender Frost paper collection from Prima. These were made with papers from the 6 x 6 pad, the 3 x 4 journaling cards, some of the matching flowers Prima released with this range,and few odd die cuts laying on my craft table.There is a metal finding on the lower card, some lace on the top card, and I did do a little fussy cutting from the papers! I love this paper, and as we speak I have some more cards in various stages on my craft desk waiting for finishing touches. I have also used it in a mega class I am doing in March at paper flourish. This week I picked up my Prima poetic rose paper collection, and have enjoyed some fussy cutting while watching TV in preparation for some cardmaking this afternoon. I am not sure if I will be back here before my cruise on thursday…depends how the packing goes, but if I don’t get back I will see you all in two weeks! Til then …..

Mintay Birdsong 1, 2, and 3…

Leave a comment

_MG_0027 (Medium)_MG_0028 (Medium)_MG_0029 (Medium)Todays three cards are made with Mintay Birdsong. Mintay is a polish paper company that i have recently been introduced to, we are using their collections a lot in classes, and I have not yet seen a collection that didn’t inspire me. The papers have lots of fussy cutting elements which is my favourite thing, but the top card has no fussy cutting , just layering of papers and a frame , flowers and flourish to decorate…(I did fussy cut the butterfly…couldn’t help myself). The second and third cards have more fussy cutting as well as some flowers and rose gold flourish die cutting. Tomorrow I am teaching some cards i designed using this paper collection and there is lots¬† and lots of fussy cutting involved in those cards…the ladies will love it! We will sit, relax, and snip away while we catch up with each others news..I am looking forward to it. Til tomorrow…..
