Kaisercraft pitter Patter 6″ pad for the paper, and the matching collectables to embellish. I used stampin up sky blue cardstock, ink pad ( to ink around my edges) and button and linen thread to finish. today I have been moving some of my bigger tools into the adjoining room ( to be known from here on as the craft room annex!) but I have been a little distracted playing with my new spellbinder dies – I love the borders I bought, and have lots of ideas for them – may even do a lesson using them… still working on that thought! til tomorrow….

I fussy cut the flowers out of one sheet, and teamed them up with the gingham papers and dots papers. I die cut a spellbinders scalloped rectangle, and used the resulting frame ( the rectangle will appear on another card soon) and added buttons, ric rac, seam binding, bakers twine, and a bit of bling and kindyglitz to finish. the end of the working week for me , and a couple of days off to play with my new hexagon spellbinders and embossing folders – can’t wait!

Crate paper Little Boy Blue 8

This is the last in my Crate Paper little Boy Blue series. Tomorrow we will move on – possibly more christmas! Buttons and bakers twine were added.Handily enough the paper was printed with the word baby which I cut into a banner.The tags were also printed on the paper, so it was just a matter of cutting them out and layering onto each other. It has been a day of finishing off projects in the craft room, and tomorrow I look forward to a full day  with no interruptions in there working on some new designs. Til tomorrow…

Crate paper Little Boy Blue

I found in my archives a group of cards that I haven’t shown, although I made them a little while ago, and had a very hard time remembering the name of the paper – thank goodness for google – Crate Paper Little boy Blue. I only purchased 2 or 3 sheets of this paper, but got quite a lot of cards out of it – here are the first two.I used a scalloped edge punch, and made good use of my button tin and bakers twine for these two. The cardstock is Stampin Up real red. I am busy today organising some lessons, and the craft room clean up continues…. Til tomorrow…

Amy Tangerine sketchbook 3

Today in my bold and bright series we get 3 for the price of one! The paper is American crafts Amy Tangerine Sketchbook, and the technique today is fussy cutting. I used 12 x 12 papers and cut the flower images out to make these bright cards. the only other embellishments needed here were buttons, bling, ribbon and kindyglitz. the cardstock and sentiment stamp were from Stampin Up.I spent all of today doing a stocktake of my cards and tidying up my craft room. It’s all organised now so hopefully I can find a little time to get in there and do some creating! Til tomorrow…

A little bit of everything…

I have thrown a little bit of everything at this card, so my list is quite long – here goes – Bazzil cardstock for the base, Prima Sparkling spring as the paper collection used, a chipboard dress form covered in matching paper,press studs and old pattern instructions from my late grans box ( that sewing box is coming in quite handy!) my sewing machine, assorted lace, buttons and flowers, a label die and ribbon, and all the edges were inked with worn lipstisk distressed ink. phew…great excitement in the craft room tonight as I received my big box of goodies from Kay (stampin Up) today. What to play with first?My mind is spinning with ideas -it could be quite a long session in there tonight, but first I have to cook tea for the hungry hordes, so Til tomorrow…..
