_MG_1051 (Medium)_MG_1053 (Medium)Two cards today made with Mintay by Carole Together 12 x 12 paper collection. The top card has lots of fussy cutting, and I have just added a few fabric flowers in the lower left corner, as well as a sentiment. The lower card still has a little fussy cut elements, but has more added bits…lace, a chipboard corner ,white die cut leaves, some more flowers, and an extra layer. the chipboard corner blends in better in real life! I have had a lovely crafty week, but now all the cards I have made need inserts as a finishing touch, so that is my job today! Til next time….

_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….

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…..

_MG_0243 (Medium)_MG_0244 (Medium)_MG_0245 (Medium)The other three cards I made with Kaisercraft Greenhouse paper collection and matching collectables. I have lots of this paper left, but had to put it away to concentrate on my Cruise cards which are coming along nicely – all the designs are done and it’s just a matter of making up all the packs.Meanwhile back to this weeks cards…I liked this paper collection because it didn’t need anything more added to it, although the first card does have a die cut succulent from Uniquely creative succulent dies set, and the second card has a few silver rhinestones. I have also been making Christmas cards this week with Prima Christmas in the Country paper collection – a gorgeous vintage range! Til next time …..

_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 Lost in Paradise

_MG_0200 (Medium)_MG_0203 (Medium)I couldn’t resist the Lost in paradise collection by graphic 45…Flowers, birds and butterflies..Love it! Here are the first two cards I made with it once I had done a lot of fussy cutting. No fussy cutting on these ones though! I folded a double zig zag card and only used the papers – no bling , ribbon or lace needed on these ones. So quick and simple! this week has been all about cruise class prep as  the next few weeks will be until the 5 classes are all sorted.  two prepared ..three to go! Til next week…

_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,….
