My Minds Eye In Bloom double zig zag…

_MG_4262 (Medium)_MG_4263 (Medium)Today we are back to cards, and these are the final two cards I have made using My Minds Eye In Bloom papers. I made my favourite double zig zag cards and relied solely on the papers with just a couple of ribbon bows and some glitter. I die cut the sentiment with Kaisercraft all occasions die.Today is a public holiday here and i have kept the day free to be able to spend some relaxing time in the craft room. All week we have been opening many boxes of new stock at Paper Flourish and I couldn’t resist…I have quite a few new things to create with ..so without further ado  I am off to the craft room!! Til Tomorrow….

My Minds Eye In Bloom cards….

_MG_4270 (Medium)_MG_4271 (Medium)I am sorry I have been missing all week, but it has been horrendously hot here this week, and all any of us can do is find the coolest spot and just stay there! They tell us we have had a cool change, but it is 35C today, and that is still hot in my book!Anyway enough of that and on to today’s cards…These ones are made with papers from the My Minds Eye In Bloom collection, 12 x 12 papers, and /or the 6′ paper pad from the same collection. The papers are so gorgeous the cards really didn’t need any more embellishments. I loved this collection so much I actually framed one of the 12 x 12 pieces and hung it in my hallway! Heat or not today i amd definitely going into the craft room for some craft time!Til tomorrow…..

My Minds Eye In Bloom.

_MG_4266 (Medium) A natural progression from yesterdays card where I had used My Minds Eye In Bloom patterned paper as the background layer is today’s card which uses all My Minds Eye In Bloom paper. I die cut a gold foil heart, and added black lace and gold ribbon. Everything else is from the paper collection. Yesterday was very productive day in the craft room. I planned out my march classes, and started to experiment with some irridescent medium and stencils to make my own background layers that have a bit of a sheen.This is a work in progress but will share when i have something to show you! Til tomorrow….

Todays card is a very simple elegant card made with just a couple of products. The background paper is My Minds Eye In Bloom and I made the rose with my Go Press and foil machine and an Ana Griffin foil stamp, which I then die cut with an oval die. A black lace bow and that is finished!We have a very hot day today, a bit cooler tomorrow though so that will be a craft day for me while I think about some classes for March!

The last two My Minds eye….

IMG_7572 (Medium)IMG_7573 (Medium)Here are the last two cards I made with My minds Eye My story paper collection, and chipboard elements. The only thing I added to these two was a little bit of gold twine. I have enjoyed playing with this collection and will revisit it again to use up all the leftovers when I have made some cards with the new collections I bought over christmas and haven’t cut into yet!Meanwhile today in the craft room with all lessons up to date I am creating with some graphic 45 and then will move on to some very old paper collections to start my new years resolution which is to use it or clear it out!Til tomorow…..

My Minds Eye My story number 7…

IMG_7570 (Medium)My minds eye My story paper collection ( the 6″ pad) and fussy cut butterflies from the same paper collection. I threaded the chipboard banner elements onto some gold twine,and just added a few sequins to finish this one. I have one more lesson to set up today, so I will take the little puppy into the craft room with me and attempt to teach her craft room etiquette! She is settling in well here, and our older dog Foxy tolerates her – they will be very good friends when she calms down a little bit! Our weather is still very warm over the 30C for days now and no end in sight but thats ok – better than over the 40c!! Til tomorrow….

Til tomorrow…..
