I have thoroughly enjoyed working with this paper, and have used almost every scrap of it!I have added just a little lace, ribbon, die cuts and flowers. this week saw me out in the shed dragging in my Christmas papers, dies and stamps, and I am fully immersed in Christmas cards! I am determined to use up the papers I have, lets see how that goes! til next week, stay safe…

_MG_1256 (Medium)_MG_1259 (Medium)_MG_1219_MG_1220Here are some more cards I made with Uniquely Creative Wise and Free paper collection and matching Creative cuts. I have added various die cuts that were on my desk waiting to be used, and ribbon, lace,just a few flowers ( on the lower card) and gorgeous little clear resin domes in the centre of some of the flowers. I often have die cuts on my desk waiting to be used because if I have scraps of paper that are too small for layering i will do some die cutting to use them up rather than throw them away, and it’s handy just to be able to grab them when I am in the middle of creating. It’s been another wet and windy week here, just lovely, and toasty warm inside now that we have our new heaters installed – its been perfect for crafting and I have a mountain of cards waiting for Nathan to photo..he can’t keep up! Til next time, stay safe….

_MG_1248 (Medium)_MG_1249 (Medium)_MG_1250_MG_1254 (Medium)Today I have 4 cards that I made with Uniquely Creative Wise and Free papers. This is an Australian company ( although they do have some stockists in America) and it is close to my heart as friends of mine own it, and their designs are  my favourite style.On these cards I have added some die cutting and flowers,a scrap of ribbon but thats all.It’s been bitterly cold here, and we finally gave in and installed a couple of heaters. It is toasty warm in the house now and everyone is happy! restrictions have eased a bit but we are still socially distancing and only go out for necessities as I have elderly parents and want to keep them safe. Til next time, Stay safe,

IMG_2022IMG_2027Todays cards both have an owl theme, and both are made with Uniquely Creative Wise and Free products. The top card is all papers and matching Creative Cuts, with some sequins and flowers added, and the second card is paper from the collection for the background and some Creative cuts, but also some stamping! The stamp is Uniquely Creative Wise and Free stamp and I coloured it with copic markers. A flower, doily and sequins to finish this one. After weeks and months of no rain today it is finally raining! Hopefully it is spread wide enough that it helps the firefighters in our Hills area as we are expecting more hot weather by Tuesday. I am just grateful to see it, and have all the dust settled. last night we had to do something we have never had to do before ..due to the choking smoke we had to head to the hardware store and pick up face masks. We are miles from the fire zones, so can only imagine what it is like closer to them. Today I am starting the big craft clean up… anything I haven’t used in the past year is going.. I have to make some room for new things so this is my only option… lets see how far I get before I get distracted….Til next time….

IMG_2019IMG_2020 I was sitting in the craft room doing some die cutting, but the heat was too much..it’s 10:30 am here and already 32C and more than a little bit humid, so I have moved to a cooler part of the house.Todays cards continue our series of Uniquely creative paper collection, matching Creative cuts, and assorted pretty bling . The owls on the top card have little clear resin domes over their eyes, and i have inked all my edges with Frayed Burlap distress ink. There is also a chipboard feather on the top card which I painted with Nuvo platinum mousse. i am now revising my crafty plans for today, I think I will stamp out some images, dig out my copics and sit under the air con vent! Til next time….

IMG_2021IMG_2018Uniquely creative have been known for their dies and stamps, and now they are designing their own paper collections and they are amazing! This is their first one called Wise and Free. It is available as 12 x 12 papers, and there are matching Creative cuts which  I used on these two cards. I added flowers, lace, ribbon, A uniquely Creative Doily Elements die, and actual doily, chipboard word and even sequins! Loved making these cards! I hope you all had a safe and happy Christmas, i had a lovely day with family, and am looking forward to relaxing today in the craft room until it gets too hot to be in there! Til next time….
