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!

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….

IMG_7235 (Medium)IMG_7236 (Medium)Here are the last two cards i made with My Minds eye Fancy that ( for now anyway!)My favourite is the bottom one, the paper is foiled, and I fussy cut some bunting and a gold heart, and added some of that beautiful gold twine and sequins . I have managed to spend a bit more time in the craft room, before I have to stop and elevate my leg, so I am feeling much happier! til tomorrow….

My Minds eye fancy that 4 wedding..

IMG_7233 (Medium)Today we are back to My Minds Eye Fancy That collection, this wedding card also using the matching journalling cards. I fussy cut the heart and arrow out of cards I didn’t want to use.The rest is just layering, and I used a corner punch from stampin up to cut the fancy corners.Today is a very muggy humid day here in Adelaide, and I have made plans to meet a friend for lunch – my first outing since my knee op, I am looking forward to getting out and about!Til tomorrow…

My minds eye fancy that number 3…wedding..

IMG_7231 (Medium)This one is a favourite because I got to use so much lace ! I wrapped it around the dress image I had fussy cut from a piece of the patterned paper ( my minds eye fancy that),and also fussy cut the mans suit as well. I am back in the craft room, just for short visits, but it’s amazing how much better I feel when i have been in there! til tomorrow…..

My minds eye ..Fancy That ..2..

IMG_7232 (Medium)My second wedding card made with my Minds eye fancy that. Lots of lace, and gold thread here, and the heart is fussy cut from one of the journalling cards. I always look at the journalling cards first, and if there are any that won’t make a suitable card topper they get fussy cut up into pieces I will use. Nothing is wasted with the journalling cards!Til tomorrow…..

My Minds Eye Fancy That…1..

IMG_7237 (Medium)A complete change from christmas cards… wedding cards! The paper collection is My Minds Eye Fancy that, and I have half a dozen celebration type cards to show over the next few days. This paper is foiled, so didn’t need much embellishing – the journalling cards that go with the collection are great for toppers, and all I added to this one was some gold string/twine..this card is for our friends wedding this weekend( I may miss it due to the whole knee thing, but the rest of my family will go).I have gathered my supplies for my January classes and all ready to head into the craft room, I am ok as long as I stop each hour and elevate the leg for equivelant time so it’s getting much better! Today is a terribly hot windy dusty day here, and I am glad I am inside! til tomorrow…..
