Uniquely Creative Wild ..last two

The last two cards made with the Uniquely Creative Wild collection are a total break from the Dinosaurs, much more feminine and very simple. I used an embossing folder on the top card, and some frondy leaf dies on the lower card. I haven’t done much crafting this week as my husband has been very ill in hospital. He is home now but very weak, so I am playing nurse. The one good thing is we are all out of isolation, so life will gradually get back to new normal. til next time, stay safe….

Going Wild with Dinosaurs!

I have had great fun creating a huge range of Dinosaur cards with Uniquely Creative Wild paper collection. There are many images to fussy cut and I have added little bits of colour here and there. I have two little Great nephews and these cards are perfect for them! As for life here we have two more days of self isolation, all tests have come back negative, and I am in dire need of hitting the supermarket! Til next time, stay safe….

Uniquely Creative Wild part 1..

This week i have created a few boys cards, with Uniquely creative Wild paper collection. I have added chipboard stars, the matching creative cuts, and a couple of the Wild flairs. The third card is a step card, a design I hadn’t done for a while, so thought I would revisit! here at home we are up to day five of our self isolation after the return from Sydney of my husband and son. It is terrific to have them back, but didn’t realise how small my house is. Crafting will keep me sane…. til next time, stay safe…

Uniquely Creative Dreamer Part 3…

Two final cards today made with uniquely Creative Dreamer paper collection. For the first card I die cut a file die ( UC brand) and decorated inside and out. the second image shows the inside decoration. The third image is a very simple card using some of the matching Creative cuts that are available with this collection. I have thoroughly enjoyed making these pretty in pink cards, next time there are some for the boys! Happy new year to all…Til next time, stay safe.

Uniquely Creative Dreamer part 2…

The images in this paper collection are so cute, I’ve done a little fussy cutting, and I had these white cardstock frames on my desk from another project which I thought would make a great start on a couple of shaker cards. I used Acetate for the windows, and filled with uniquely Creative craft sprinkles. I haven’t made shaker cards before, but I am happy with the result.Well, that’s Christmas over for another year, and a strange one it was. My husband was over in Sydney with one son, while I stayed here in Adelaide with the other. The good news is just a week until they are back here with us, and we will celebrate then! Til Next Time, stay safe……

Uniquely Creative Dreamer part 1..

I oreder an Advent kit from Uniquely Creative..there are 25 envelopes in it and you open one each day. The first envelope was this gorgous Dreamer paper collection, and these cards have been made with the first few envelopes. the second envelope was matching creative cuts. It is great fun opening an envelope with crafting goodies every day but I admit I opened them all at once! Dont judge me – I couldn’t resist! But in keeping with the spirit of the game I am only using the relevant envelopes so that I dont give away any surprises. The last card here is a slimline card. Now to the exciting news ..my son Daniel is coming back from Sydney to live here! He accepted a job offer here in his home town, and so i have been clearing out my card room/ craft storage area so that he can stay with us until he settles back home and gets his own place so at the moment most of my craft equipment is in the shed. Oh well, a very small price to pay to have him safe at home again. Til next time, stay safe ….

Mintay Urban Jungle part 2…

Her, as promised are the other 3 cards i have made so far with Mintay urban Jungle..a week late, I know, But things have been happening! First we were sent into a deep lockdown due to an outbreak of Covid. Thankfully our wonderful health professionals were on top of the contact tracing so swiftly we didn’t have to endure a very long “nothing but supermarkets and medical places open” for very long at all, and things are now almost back to normal with minimal restrictions. So a great time to craft I hear you say? No. My son is finally coming home after spending four years interstate, and not being able to see him all this year, there is nothing but excitement here as I empty my craft room to give him a place to lay his head until he gets his own place. Also now that the shops are finally open I have to do a last minute push to finish the Christmas shopping. Crafting will happen, but it is going to be sporadic for a while!In the meantime stay safe, Til next time….

Mintay Urban Jungle part 1…

This week I have some cards I made with Mintay Urban Jungle. I love this collection of papers because we have all these plants here at our house, my son looks after them, and one of these cards will be his birthday card next month! I haven’t added anything to these, just a metal butterfly and a little book print page on the third card. The rest just relied on the papers and lots of fussy cutting. Today is hot and stormy here, lots of thunder and lightning, and very warm, so as humid as you can imagine! We have also just come out of a really hard lockdown, very strict, with no leaving your house except for medical and essential groceries, but we all did it, and now things are back under control, thank goodness!meanwhile, til next time, stay safe….

Uniquely Creative Something Blue part 2…

Another three cards made with Uniquely Creative Something Blue. All the bits and pieces on these cards were in the creative kit,but everything is also available individually on their website. I love the cool colours in this range.. just what we need today when our temperature is so hot..over 38C ! A cool crafting day for me! Til next time, stay safe…

Uniquely Creative Something Blue

This week I received the new Uniquely Creative paper collection and ephemera for November. It’s called Something Blue, very pretty with lots of fussy cutting potential! These are the first three cards I have made, just the papers, a little cardstock a touch of lace and a couple of wooden embellishments. The last card is a slim line card..I have been trying these out, and I like them! Til next time..stay safe…
