Country Roads final 5…

This week are the final 5 cards I have made with Country Roads paper collection by Uniquely creative. There is a real mix here which just shows how versatile this collection is. I have used about half the pack making this series of cards ( shown over the last three weeks) and I have put the other half away to revisit at a later date when I need more male cards. I havent used much extra bits on these ones, just the matching Creative cuts, a little chipboard, and a couple of windmill die cuts from the Uniquely creative windmill die. I am ready to move on to something frilly and flowery now! Til next time, stay safe,,,

Country Roads…

I know that was a strange Blog Post title , but that is the name of this months paper collection from Uniquely Creative, and next weeks cards might explain the title better! I made these cards with the collection because I had an order to fulfill for teenage boys cards . I added some hessian for texture, and a couple of chipboard pieces for the same reason. It’s been another slow crafting week here, with extreme hot weather which is not good for the stability of my glue, but there is a cooler week forecast for us this week and I am looking forward to that! Til next time, stay safe…

Uniquely Creative Serendipity part 2..

This week I have a few more cards to show you made with Uniquely Creative Serendipity collection. I have also used the matching Creative cuts, and added all sorts of things! Bling, ribbon. lace, string pearls, sequins, chipboard, doilies and I even did a little stamping and stenciling! I have a few new papers to create with and I am looking forward to finding some time to sit down and relax with them! Til next time, stay safe….

Uniquely creative Serendipity..

January’s paper collection from uniquely creative was a pretty floral collection, and I have managed to make a range of cards from birthday to weddings which will come in handy in my stash.I have also made some simple cards just using the papers, and others that have a few layers and added lace and bling.I have inked the edges on some cards, and left some cards uninked, so lots of versatility achieved too. I have had great fun! It’s been good to have my hobby to fall back on to distract my mind from having my mum andf husband both in hospital at the same time ( both home now and recovering thank goodness) and my dad who is having a surgical procedure next Monday. It’s been doctors visits and hospital visits for the last three weeks, and glad everybody seems to be on the improve. Meanwhile I will keep crafting ! Til next time, stay safe…

A break from Dinosaurs!

Five cards today, all made with one collection..Uniquely Creative Ocean Breeze. This was a great collection because I could make quite a few cards in different categories, and there was lots of fussy cutting potential!I really didn’t add very much to any of these cards, one ribbon bow and a tiny bit of bling. A lot going on here this week, My mum and Husband are both now out of hospital and on the mend, so i might be able to get back to the craft table this week. Til next time, stay safe….

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.
