Card box card..

img_3545-mediumToday will be my last post for about a week, as I am off to visit my son in Sydney! It is also the last card I made using Kaisercraft True Romance paper collection. I have a you-tube clip ( see link on right hand side of blog) to show you the measurements for my box card,and I have just used the papers, inking around the edges of all the panels with tea dye distress ink, and added a bow. All the other pieces were fussy cut fromthe papers. I spent a little time in the craft room this morning, hoping to prepare my classes for december, but the shoulder is still not the best even with yesterdays cortosone injection, so I have had to give up, and will sit and rest it for a while with a good book! Til next week…

Kaisercraft Little one,card in a box

IMG_7590 (Medium)These two cards are the reason I had this paper ( kaisercraft Little one) out on my desk the other day. I fussy cut the elephants and owls out of some of the 12 x 12 papers in the collection, and made my boxes ( video coming I promise – they are so simple you will be amazed!) and fixed the fussy cutting onto strips of acetate.they wobble about nicely!I have since had to make more owls cards because the three I initially made have gone – I sent one to my Auntie in Perth and it handled the post perfectly and was only the cost of a normal stamp! Much cooler day here and after the week of humidity we have had it is so welcome. Looking forward to a weekend of playing with my new stampin up supplies! til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft A touch of Gold..

IMG_7560 (Medium)Special cards for today, as it’s new years eve ( happy new year everyone!). These are card in a box cards, they fold down flat for ease of posting and I have adjusted the measurements so that they fit into a standard envelope. I will have to organise nathan to film another clip for these ones, anyway, The paper is kaisercraft A touch of Gold, and I die cut the balloons from gold foil card and glitter card ( the die is a kaisercraft one). I added some punched bunting, a few sequins and happy birthday stickers. I have been missing for a few days because our little dog Patches passed away,and it has been a very sad time.He had a wonderful long life, he was nearly 17, but I so miss my little shadow. I haven’t yet been able to go into the craft room as he used to lie under my desk at my feet whenever I was in there, but will make an effort tomorrow so that I can plan out some lessons. My new years resolution this year to to use up some of the paper collections I have and I have already made a start on that and you will see results over the coming weeks.For now, til tomorrow….

Card in a box cards

IMG_4067 (Medium)IMG_4070 (Medium)So, I started to go through my papers to have a bit of a cull, and straight away got distracted. This is a kaisercraft paper, a couple of years old ( and I can’t remember the name), and when I bought it I hadn’t learnt how to make these card in a box cards. when I saw the paper again this is the first thing I did with it.I have been through to the card room to try and find the rest of the paper so that I can tell you the name, but I have lost it again, I don’t think I finished it with these cards so I am sure it will turn up again , maybe in another couple of years! Meantime, if anyone knows the name of this collection can they let me know cos it’s going to drive me crazy!Today I have been making baby cards – I had to pull out all the baby card papers to make a special card for a friend, so while it was out I made a few more. Now I have moved onto engagement/wedding cards using kaisercrafts new collection xo ( funny name!!)Til tomorrow….
