Leave a comment

IMG_2746 (Medium)Here is my last ( I promise…maybe) Kaisercraft Ooh La La card. 17 cards with this paper!This one is the easiest one yet.A piece of 12 x 12 cut apart paper with a bow made from some of the 6″ pad paper. The bow was done with my Stampin Up bow punch. Most of the cards in this series were made when I had injured my shoulder and couldn’t use my die cutting machine,so I really relied on the papers, it was an interesting exercise. Tomorrow i start my new job at Paper Flourish. So looking forward to it, I can’t wait, surrounded by temptation all day!But for today, it’s grocery shopping and quite a hot day so a quiet day inside. Til tomorrow…..

IMG_2744 (Medium)IMG_2747 (Medium)Two cards today, made with kaisercraft Ooh La La, and some white space.I don’t often leave white space on my cards, but I like these and will experiment with more white space cards in the future. There is a mixture of fussy cut images, and collectables on both cards, with a little ribbon, a lace flower and just a couple of flowers.I spent a lovely afternoon in the craft room yesterday, I did miss crafting while I was away.This afternoon I am popping in there to make Mum and Dad a 61st wedding anniversary card and I have been doing a little tidying as I go too.Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Ooh La La 14….


IMG_2742It appears we are back to some Kaisercraft Ooh La La makes!I drew out a tea cup template and cut it out of some of the patterned paper from the 6″ pad,and decorated with orange ric-rac,ribbon, Green Tara flowers lace and a collectable butterfly from the matching set.The sentiment was from the 6″ pad, and I mounted it on some blue cardstock. Things are back to normal here, all unpacking and washing done, caught up with Mum and Dad, inspected the garden, and today I am looking forward to sitting in the craft room after nearly 2 weeks away from it! Til tomorrow….

img_8035-mediumimg_8037-mediumKaisercraft ooh La La again today, the top card has a doily and a wooden word from Kaisercraft as well as a bit of ric rac,and sequins.the bottom card has some fussy cutting and both cards use some of the collectables from the same range. The main images are cut from a 12  x 12 paper. i hope every one had an enjoyable Christmas break, mine was very relaxing, although Christmas day itself was very hot  40C so cold meat and salads and lots of lazing around! It has cooled down a lot in the meantime and we have rain today, so extreme weather conditions here! Til tomorrow….

Merry Christmas to you all!

img_3297-mediumStraight away I must confess this is not my is the design of my good friend Mandii, who designed it for the Class in a box kit that I bought from Paper Flourish.I don’t usually do the designs suggested in the box, I go off on a tangent and do my own thing, but I fell in love with this one of Mandiis. Everything on the card was in the box, and of course the main item is the gorgeous Kaisercraft Ooh La la papers.This is the last with this paper for now, I have many more waiting to be photographed so we will be returning to it soon, but next up on the blog list is some more Christmas cards, we are getting to the end of them now! Today is my little puppy’s first birthday so i must go and make a fuss of her…til tomorrow….
