PS I Love You..

This is the last of my Boxed cards. I made the flower spray, added some black accents to tie in with the sentiment which is a collectable from the PS I love you collection from Kaisercraft.Again this is a card that could be used for wedding,engagement,valentines or anniversary. This weekend has been very busy, with very little time in the craft room, but i will be in there this afternoon as I have a class to set up, I am trying to get ahead with them as the cruise is only 2 and 1/2 weeks away and I won’t be crafting then ( teaching, but no crafting!)til tomorrow….img_0727-medium

Valentines day card

img_0716-mediumThe collectables pack from the Prima Rossibelle collection had some wonderful bits and pieces in it, and the silver plaque and tag were the base for this card. The flowers were also Prima and I added some gold thread and a flat backed pearl. The papers were some random pieces that were in my stash and I used a bit of the silver textured one to die cut a heart. Today is a day off, so i have been busy in the kitchen experimenting with a chicken casserole – no recipe so hope it turns out alright – smells ok as its simmerimg, so hopefully I have succeeded! Now I am off to the craft room to make a start on 6 orders, and looking forward to relaxing! til tomorrow…

Simple Stories – The story of us, 9 and 10.

IMG_5767 (Medium)IMG_5768 (Medium)Two wedding cards today, although the bottom card could also be used for anniversary,engagement or even valentines day, from Simple stories the story of us paper collection.A bit of fussy cutting involved here, especially on the top card, and just some punched leaves, pearls, and ribbon bow to finish. Thank you all for sticking with me through this simple stories marathon, we have two more tomorrow and then we will move on! I certainly got my moneys worth with theses few sheets of paper!Today I sat down at my craft table and found some images I had stamped and coloured, so I turned them all into cards so feel good – I tidied and created all at once! Til tomorrow…

Simple Stories the story of us number 1 and 2

IMG_5758 (Medium)IMG_5759 (Medium)I bought just a few sheets of this collection – Simple stories the story of Us ( I think it’s really meant to be used for scrapbooking pages but I saw lots of card making potential) and made so many cards just in one sitting, that I am going to put them up two at a time otherwise we will be going for quite some time !the top card has quite a bit of product, starting with sequins to match the sequin patterned background, doily,die cut hearts,ribbon, kaisercraft mini flowers,martha stewart leaf punch,liquid pearls and a stampin up sentiment. At the other end of the scale the second card only has a few sequins and a couple of leaf punches. The rest of this one was fussy cut bits from the papers.Throughout the range of Cards that you will see I have used metallic cardstock in gold and / or silver for the matting.This afternoon I have been in the craft room planning April classes – I know I am really getting ahead of myself, but I had some new kaisercraft paper – it was released this month – Betsys couture – and I really wanted to use it for a class and April will be the first opportunity to do so. I love this paper, and can’t wait to start creating my own cards with this range! Til tomorrow…

Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments number 2..

IMG_7870 (Medium)Here is the second card I have made using Graphic 45 sweet sentiments.( this is the last for now until we photo the Easter cards I made). The bottom layer of this one is actually My Minds Eye paper but it seemed to match so well and it was an odd piece of paper that I had so I used it!. All my layers were inked with Ranger distress ink – Tea Dye, and I added a charm tied with linen thread to the top left hand corner.I have been busy in the craft room this afternoon making up some orders, but I am heading back in there now to play around with some ideas I have.. til tomorrow….

Graphic 45 Sweet sentiments number 1

IMG_5855 (Medium)I bought a 12 x 12 pad of Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments paper, and there are lots of images on this paper for valentines day cards and easter cards. This week I have been making some Easter cards , but previously I made a couple of valentines Day cards – this is the first one.Nothing on this card except for the papers – layered and fussy cut. Some fancy photography by Nathan managed to put an image of the inside of the card on the right hand side of the card front.the layer of paper used on the inside is actually My Minds Eye now that I look closely!That crossover of paper companys very rarely happens in my world! I taught a lovely class of ladies this morning, and I am looking forward to a long weekend of crafting. Til tomorrow….

kaisercraft Secret Admirer number 8

IMG_1182 (Medium)Here is number 8 in my kaisercraft secret Admirer series. I used the 6″ pad and matching collectables for this one, and I also used the secret Admirer doily stamps in the top right and bottom left corners. I layered various collectables, and added some bright pink ribbon and kaisercraft rhinestones to finish. Today Nathan and I have been filming a you tube clip on how I make my card in a box box, which hopefully I will post tomorrow . He has to try and edit out a bit of background noise – normally we have the house to ourselves when we do our clips, but not the case today, and it was a bit noisy – even though they were all told “quiet on the set”!We will see how it turns out – you may have to ignore assorted barking dogs etc.. Til tomorrow….
