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…..
Another example of my handmade floral spray used on a card.The papers are Kaisercraft PS I love you,and the die is paper rose Ornate circle . I used a collectable doily ( from the paper collection) under the circle. This card could be used for wedding, engagement or anniversary..or even Valentines day!Quick post today as it’s awfully hot sitting here at the computer, I am going to find a nice spot under an airconditioning vent to sit and read a good book! til tomorrow….
Kaisercraft Always and Forever paper collection. I have used this paper for my June Lesson at paper Flourish, and I have made lots of cards here at home with it ,so this is just a preview!I have done some fussy cutting – there is a whole sheet of printed doilies which are really easy to cut out, and I have added some prima and kaisercraft flowers.We are on the home stretch re stocktake at work, today I have a day off, one more working day and then holidays for two weeks! Yay!.Til tomorrow….
Todays card is and engagement card, using all the same bits and pieces as yesterday card, including kaisercraft Cottage Rose paper ( 6″ pad this time) , collectables, and occassions die. I also die cut a couple of hearts with some silver cardstock from stampin up. Quick post today as my roast is ready as we speak, and then into the craft room – I have finally caught up with orders so today is freestylin’! Til tomorrow….
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…..
Kaisercraft xo paper collection. The top card ( which will be mum and Dads anniversary card next month) has a card front cut from a piece of 12 x 12 paper and some use of the matching collectables, and a ribbon bow. the bottom card also uses a card front from the 12 x 12 paper, and I have popped on a die cut flower which was sitting handily on my desk, a pearl and a die cut heart. This one I put an engagement verse inside. The cardstock that I used for this whole range of cards is stampin up pool party.Well, it was back to work yesterday,and everything is falling into the work routine, so I must be off or else I will be late for my second day back at work! til tomorrow…..
In the spirit of valentines day yesterday , for the next few days I am going to put up some cards suitable for weddings,engagements, and anniversaries over the next few days made with kaisercrafts’ recent release xo ( funny name!)Todays card was made with a piece of the paper from the 6″ pad, and a collectables from the matching pack. the red heart was punched, and I added a little flower,pearls ( one appears to have dropped off – will have to replace that!)and a ribbon bow. Absolutely too hot here to do anything but laze around reading a good book. Til tomorrow….
