_MG_7029 (Medium)Kaisercraft high Tea collection, ( a piece of the 12 x 12 paper as a background, A strip from the 12 x 12 sticker sheet down the middle, and a push out circle from the 6″ pad behind the resin frame). I Die cut and ornate circle ( Paper Rose) and a circle from patterned paper, and added a gorgeous soft pink ribbon bow. I am working tonight,so I have spent this morning sorting through my embossing folders, removing them from their packaging for easier storage…the aim is to make a little room in the craft room because on Wednesday I buy my Go Press Foiling machine and I need some room for it. I cannot wait to get it..everything within  sight including all that chipboard I have and don’ Til tomorrow….t know what to do with is going to be foiled!

Kaisercraft high Tea..this time the 6″ pad, and another of those gorgeous resin frames which I backed with a scrap of patterned paper and added a punched butterfly to. Lots of ribbon and lace, and some liquid pearls for texture. The sentiment was in the 6″ pad. Yesterday was a productive day in the craft room, I finished off a couple of projects,came up with a couple of designs for the cruise cards, and did a couple of cards for a challenge which I needed for todays crafty meeting with friends. The challenge was Autumn so I am interested to see what everyone else has come up with. Til tomorrow….

_MG_7027 (Medium)continuing on with Kaisercraft High Tea,combined with a paper Rose die. The die is a corner die, but i angled it a little differently on the card to half frame the image I fussy cut from a piece of the 12 x 12 paper.Another piece cut from some 12 x 12 paper from the collection was used as the bottom layer. The sentiment is a kaisercraft die, and I embellished with pearls, a ribbon bow, and a punched butterfly. I have had a busy week, lots of lovely new things coming into the shop, and today is going to be dedicated to creating in the craft room!Til tomorrow…

Kaisercraft High Tea number 3….


_MG_7026 (Medium)Kaisercraft high Tea Collection,and for this card I have used some of the 12 x 12 papers. The tea cup is die cut from a spellbinders die, and the strip across the tea cup came from the matching sticker sheet. The sentiment is from the 6″ pad, and I added some lace, ribbon and a bow. The pink bracket layer is actually traced from a piece  shaped like that in the 6″ pad. I finished work early today, so I am debating whether to do some Christmas die cutting… I have lots of other paper collections I haven’t used yet, but my mind keeps drifting to Christmas , it would be nice to have a bit of a head start… Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft High Tea number 1 ….

_MG_7021 (Medium)Today I am starting a new card series, using Kaisercraft High Tea collection. I love this paper collection, and have made a lot of cards with it, so we may have a bit of a break half way through..This first card has a layer of paper from the 6″ pad on top of a pink card base. I have some resin frames bought very cheaply, and I can’t get them any more, but they are perfect for cards as they are very lightweight. You will see them featured on future cards. I used a sentiment from the same pad, and stuck it behind the frame,it fitted perfectly! I die cut a circle from some more patterned paper from the pad, and the two  die cuts I used before decorating with assorted flowers were memory box lorelia leaf and Paper Rose ornate circle. The weekend is here and I am so looking forward to relaxing in the craft room after all my house work is done! Til tomorrow….

_MG_7043 (Medium)I have the morning off today as I am teaching tonight,so I thought I would post the last of my Graphic 45 Portrait of a Lady cards ( for now, of course I will come back to this paper at a later date!) Today’s card has a black card base, and the image is fussy cut from one of the 12 x 12 papers. There is a bundle of assorted flowers and punched leaves in the bottom corner. This one was a quick and easy card to put together, and sold at the craft fair along with all the other cards in this series. I had a lovely three days at the craft fair, catching up with like minded crafters, buying some supplies such as lace, and selling a lot of the cards I have made over the last year. This is great because i can start filling my boxes all over again for next year! Til tomorrow…..

Graphic 45 Portrait of a lady….(2)

_MG_7041 (Medium)On my desk was some very thick acetate from packaging and it was perfect to make this card. I took a square blank card and chopped a large piece from the front middle section,and replaced it with the acetate, keeping cardstock at the bottom of the card for weight and balance.( I attached lace to this piece). The rest of the card was decorated with various pieces of patterned paper from the Graphic 45 range.. Portrait of a Lady.The front image was attached behind the acetate with very small glue dots. Although they are just visible they are not too noticable. I added lots of flowers and some punched greenery in the left corner. This is a favourite card and will be hard to sell! Today is going to be a day spent in the craft room, I haven’t had much time to get in there and just create lately so I am looking forward to it! til tomorrow…..
