IMG_4108 (Medium)IMG_4109 (Medium)IMG_4110 (Medium)A beach theme today with the wonderful papers from Kaisercraft – coastal escape.All the cards here are made with just a couple of the 12 x 12 sheets, and they were a lesson I taught a couple of months ago at paper Flourish.The trim is by Green tara, and the large happy birthday die is from kaisercraft, the smaller one is by spellbinders.The bottom card is a great sketch idea to use up those little strips we always have left over!My voice has come back, and I am starting to feel more like normal again,just a s well really, I need a ll my energy to chase after that puppy who has developed an obssession with my balls of wool. No amount of telling off will put her off, and yesterday she had unravelled 3 balls all through the house.I must invest in a zip up bag that she can’t get into! Til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft paradiso number 1

IMG_5847 (Medium)As the weather in some parts of Australia is so hot, I thought it only fitting to post  some beach cards. Luckily for us here in Adelaide the weather hasn’t been quite so hot, today has been lovely, but all the same I do feel sorry for those suffering the heat. The paper collection featured for the next few days is a release from last month by kaisercraft called Paradiso, and the main images on the cards all came from one of the 12 x 12 sheets. Thrifty crafting at its best because I made 6 cards out of this sheet! All I added here were a couple of buttons and some twine and a few of the matching collectables. The cardstock is some retired stampin up cardstock.This weekend I am working on some baby cards to replenish my market boxes. Til tomorrow….

last stamped card, for now…

IMG_3178 (Medium)i say for now because I have been busy stamping this week, and we will get the camera out this weekend and take some photos!. On this card I have used two stamp sets from stampin up – Gorgeous grunge and By the sea shore. I used four ink pads ( stampin up daffodil delight, vherry cobbler, night of nave an early espresso. I stamped  the crab seperately and fussy cut it out and layered it on top  of a piece of hessian. i would like to take this opportunity to say Merry Christmas to you all, and I hope you have a lovely, safe festive season surrounded by your nearest and dearest, and maybe manage to squeeze a little relaxing crafting in there too! I will take a couple of days break from my blog, and I will see you all  at the end of the week…Til then…

IMG_1164 (Medium)This third card is made with Kaisercraft tropicana 12 x 12 ” papers. I matted each image onto Stampin Up early espresso cardstock, and the card base was made with Stampin Up so saffron.I have had a busy week this week, what with work and my card classes, and in between I have been trying to sort out all my ribbons, buttons, flowers etc into see through containers to make them easier to find. I will continue that tonight, then I should be all organised for the week end! Til tomorrow….
