Mintay Urban Jungle part 1…

This week I have some cards I made with Mintay Urban Jungle. I love this collection of papers because we have all these plants here at our house, my son looks after them, and one of these cards will be his birthday card next month! I haven’t added anything to these, just a metal butterfly and a little book print page on the third card. The rest just relied on the papers and lots of fussy cutting. Today is hot and stormy here, lots of thunder and lightning, and very warm, so as humid as you can imagine! We have also just come out of a really hard lockdown, very strict, with no leaving your house except for medical and essential groceries, but we all did it, and now things are back under control, thank goodness!meanwhile, til next time, stay safe….

Uniquely Creative Something Blue part 2…

Another three cards made with Uniquely Creative Something Blue. All the bits and pieces on these cards were in the creative kit,but everything is also available individually on their website. I love the cool colours in this range.. just what we need today when our temperature is so hot..over 38C ! A cool crafting day for me! Til next time, stay safe…

Uniquely Creative Something Blue

This week I received the new Uniquely Creative paper collection and ephemera for November. It’s called Something Blue, very pretty with lots of fussy cutting potential! These are the first three cards I have made, just the papers, a little cardstock a touch of lace and a couple of wooden embellishments. The last card is a slim line card..I have been trying these out, and I like them! Til next time..stay safe…

Uniquely Creative Holly Joly Christmas..

This weeks cards are all made from Uniquely Creative new paper collection called Holly Jolly Christmas. I havent added too much to these, just a few fabric flowers, and a little touch of gold glitter card. The last card was an experiment trying out a slimline card. I have seen these around a lot lately, seems to be the new big thing so thought I would try one. You use a little more cardstock making them, but they fir into a business size envelope, and in Australia cost the same as a letter to post, so just something else to add to the usual sizes,for some diversity!Til next time, stay safe….

Mintay Merry and Bright continued…

This week we are back to Christmas makes with Mintay Merry and Bright paper collection. I really haven’t added very much at all to the papers, some of the sentiments are from Uniquely Creative cut apart sentiment sheet, and the third card has a few Christmas themed flowers. In real time on my craft desk today is a new range from Mintay called Urban Jungle and I am going to start on that. For now though, til next time , stay safe….

A Break from Christmas…

This week I am taking a break from Christmas makes to show a few cards I have made from Mintay Beauty in Bloom. It’s spring here, and this paper collection is all about that. I haven’t added too much more than just the papers with some fussy cut elements, a little ribbon and lace of course! Another quiet week here, doing some sewing, reading, gardening and of course card making! Til next time, stay safe…

The last Once Upon a Christmas cards…

This is the last of my Uniquely Creative Once Upon a Christmas series, mainly because I have the new papers from them to create with, so i have put the rest of this one away and we will see it again next year! I have enjoyed creating with this collection because I have been able to do vintage style and more modern with it, as the=is group shows – the top two vintage style with lots of layers and lace, and the bottom card is much more modern with its pops of black and white. I can’t beleive its October already.. soon time to sit down and write out all those christmas cards.. I think we will be sending many more this year..so many people we haven’t been able to catch up with, and probably not before Christmas either.. a card is a lovely way to stay in contact. Til next time, stay safe …

Mintay Merry and Bright

Three cards today made with Mintay merry and Bright. The first two are very simple , with just fussy cut images from the papers, and the third card is an accordian style card with step down features. I have shown you a few different angles, so that hopefully you see what I mean!lots of images from the papers, and added flowers and a doily on this one!This week I have been busy drawing up patterns – I am going to get the sewing machine out and try my hand at some dolls clothes for my little great niece..I am looking forward to trying something a bit different, but i also have to prepare a lesson for the village ladies, so a crafty week is on the cards! til next time, stay safe….

Uniquely Creative Once Upon a Christmas

I love the cute critters. I have been doing a little crafting this week, i have also been fussy cutting my new Mintay papers, and look forward to starting some cards with the gorgeous new papers. Otherwise, it’s been another quiet week of social distancing! til next time, stay safe….

Bits and pieces on my desk…

_MG_1265 (Medium)_MG_1268 (Medium)A little while ago when I was having a bit of a clean up, a few scraps on my desk ( with a little die cutting) were turned into cards. I quite like these ones, and they may be turned into a village ladies class in the near future, when we are finished our Christmas cards. Speaking of…I received my new Uniquely Creative Once upon a Christmas paper pack this week and am enjoying all the fussycutting!Oh, and you can now follow me in instagram at helengreco30!  Thats been my week, hope you are all staying safe, til next time….
