Graphic 45 Le’Amour number 11

IMG_7765 (Medium)For the final card in my graphic 45 Le’Amour series I have made an easel card,and used a feather die that I got free on the front of a magazine.It cuts beautifully,and I love the shape of it.Just layering and minimal embellishing on this one. tomorrow we will start a new series – as much of a surprise to me as it will be to you because I can’t remember what we have coming up!The good news is I found my baby papers, the bad news is my pink buttons are still missing!No doubt they will turn up when I am not looking for them! Til tomorrow….

IMG_7772 (Medium)A gatefold design today made with graphic 45 Le Amour and just a bit of ribbon for embellishment.Tomorrow will be the last design using this paper for now, today I spent some time going through my boxes, in preparation for the craft fair in June, sorting out cards I am short of, and it appears from now until then I will be making a lot of mens cards! What a surprise!Not much mens papers around just now so I will have to rely on older paper in my craft room and stamp sets.I also spent a little while finishing off some baby boy cards I have been working on, and looking for my pink buttons! They have not been found,and nor has my stash of baby papers, I think the pink buttons must be with the baby papers, so find one and I hopefully will find both, but it beats me at the moment where they have got to. A bigger search will have to happen tomorrow!Til tomorrow….

Graphic 45 Le Amour number 9

IMG_7771 (Medium)Todays card with graphic 45 Le Amour is so simple..just a piece of patterned paper a little smaller than my card base, with some lace and ribbon wrapped around it,a ribbon bow and an image cut from one of the other papers in the collection.I think this one would make a good mothers day card!.It has been a lovely weekend here in Adelaide, the weather is mild with just the right amount of sun and the nights have been cool enough to dig out the quilt so good for sleeping! Just what I like! Til tomorrow….

Graphic 45 Le Amour 7 and 8

IMG_7768 (Medium)IMG_7769 (Medium)Two more cards made with graphic 45 Le Amour papers,from the range of 12 x 12 papers. the top card is highlighted with 2 die cut feathers – the left one is a kaisercraft die, while the one on the right is a freebie from a card making magazine.Some sequins, ribbon bow and silver thread to finish. For the bottom card I only covered 1/2 the card with paper, and left some just the bare cardstock ( something I rarely do), and used a martha stewart edge punch in black cardstock and a piece of pink ribbon to separate the two parts. I layered the rose image a few times, and added a bow to complete this one.I had a pleasant start to my week off by going to the pictures with Mum.I had a couple of free tickets, and we saw Lady in a Van. A nice way to spend a Saturday afternoon!Til tomorrow….

Graphic 45 Le amour 5 and 6

IMG_7766 (Medium)IMG_7767 (Medium)Some cards over the next couple of days from a range from Graphic 45 , Le Amour.The top card has lots of fussy cutting, and just a ribbon bow, whereas the bottom card  has a bit more work – I die cut a dress form with a kaisercraft die, and a small doily ( also kaisercraft) and added a ribbon, gold thread and a stampin up cream ribbon rose for some added texture. Today while shopping a had a look at some greeting cards, just out of curiosity – I haven’t bought a card for years, and I couldn’t believe the prices!! $10 for a card! Wow! I will stick to making mine – I save money and relax at the same time – it’s win win! Til tomorrow…..

IMG_2939 (Medium)IMG_2941 (Medium)IMG_2940 (Medium)I thought as I had shown a card I made for the wedding with Graphic 45 Le’Amour I would finish the series off, as we have a few christmas cards to get through!.The top two cards are side stepper cards ( Youtube video on the way) and all the cards have fussy cutting, ribbon and lace. Love this collection and will get back to it once the christmas cards are finished , which should be by this time next week! Just a quick post this morning as I have to get off to work, til tomorrow…..

graphic 45 Le’Amour wedding card

IMG_2942 (Medium)Yesterday we attended the wedding of some friends, ( it was lovely), and I made this special card for them.The paper collection is Graphic 45 Le’Amour, and I did some fussy cutting and layering, and used one of the journalling cards from the same collection at the base of the card.The Bee in the heart up in the top corner is there because one half of the couple is called Bea, and I thought it added a very personal touch! she can take it off the card and keep it as a memento of the day if she wants. Til tomorrow…..
