Leave a comment

_MG_9834 (Medium)The second card I made with Couture Creations .. Let every day be Christmas..the A4 paper pad, a couple of different designs from it layered on top of each other, and one of the collectable die cuts from the matching pack. Some ribbon from my collection which matched perfectly and a white ribbon bow to finish! What with one thing and another it was a very hectic weekend with no crafting, and my desk has been buried under a pile of things which has just been stacked on it so now before anything happens in there I have to go and dig for my desk… That will keep me busy this afternoon! Til tomorrow…..

_MG_9829 (Medium)I made these two cards for family birthdays, and I used Graphic 45 Natures Sketchbook 12 x 12 papers. I have done a you tube clip on how to make these super easy box cards, they fold down to fit into a normal sized envelope, I posted one and it arrived safe and sound! The link to my you-tube channel is over there on the right hand side of my blog, ( you may have to scroll down a little bit to get to it). I fussy cut lots of butterflies from one of the 12 x 12 papers. I have spent this morning working on December classes, one more to go and I will   have all my classes for the rest of the year sorted! Where has this year gone? I also spent a bit of time die cutting some scrap card to try out some new dies that have been on my craft desk waiting for me to try out! Til tomorrow…..

_MG_9828 (Medium)Once again graphic 45 Natures Sketchbook , just the 12 x 12 papers with some fussy cutting of the gorgeous butterflies. A double zig zag card showcases the papers perfectly, and is quick and easy to make. A piece of cardstock 10.5 cm x 30 cm folded in half, with th the front folded in half  back on itself. and a thinner strip ( 5 cm x 30cm ) scored and folded at 13.5 cm and 21cm. I will get to making a you tube clip of this fold, but if you cant wait give these measurements a go! Til tomorrow…..

_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…

_MG_9857 (Medium)_MG_9858 (Medium)Here we are at the final two Cards i have made with Kaisercraft letters to Santa collection, and what fun i have had with this paper!Both of these cards use the 12 x 12 papers in the collection for the background pieces, and the long stickers on the sticker sheet for the smaller z fold piece. There is a pine cone on the top card which I foiled with chocolate foil and my go press and foil machine, Nuvo drops were also used on both cards for the red berries. a bit of ribbon and bows and these were quick and easy! Til tomorrow….

_MG_9854 (Medium)_MG_9856 (Medium)Both of todays Zig Zag cards use the 6″ pad from Kaisercraft Letters to Santa for the layers, and the long borders on the sticker sheet for the smaller zig zag piece. The top card has an image from the 12 x 12 pull apart piece, and a ribbon bow and the bottom card has some fussy cut postage stamps from a 12 x 12 piece of paper and some gorgeous gathered lace as well! I have had an interesting morning in the craft room experimenting with my Go press and foil machine for a December class. I have discovered that clear acetate foils beautifully, and I have been spraying some foiled die cuts as well, and now to decide which techniques will make the cut into the class! For now though it’s tea time! Til tomorrow….

_MG_9852 (Medium)_MG_9853 (Medium)And we are back to Kaisercraft letters to santa, and the last few cards in this series are z-fold cards.The top card has papers from the 6″ pad decorating the panels, a Christmas Tree collectable ( painted a little with Kindyglitz), and a greeting from the sticker sheet. the second card  also has papers from the 6″ pad decorating the panels, and the smaller z-fold strip has a long sticker from the sticker sheet across it. The greeting is from the 6″ pad. This weekend I must sort out the cruise cards, working out what is left to prepare for them and I am going to get out the go press and foil machine and try some other techniques with it for a forthcoming class at paper Flourish. I want to see what other materials we can foil with it so should be a good experiment! til tomorrow…..
