The Craft Fair..

I have been missing for a couple of weeks because I have been super busy organizing my craft stall for the local fair which took place over the last two days. I am sharing a couple of photos with you all, the first tables with the black tablecloths were my cards for sale, and the next two tables were the card kits my friend and I made up for sale. We were super busy both days and it was so good to catch up with all our local crafty friends , especially as we hadn’t seen them for two years! We had such a great time we have decided to do it all again so will have more goodies for sale same time, same place next year! Til next time ( when things will be back to normal) stay safe..

Mintay Florabella

Three cards this week, made with Mintay Florabella. I haven’t added too much to theses cards as the paper is quite busy, so just some fabric flowers on a couple of them and a little amount of die cut leaves . Lots of layering and fussycutting! Another cool week here, good weather for crafting! Til next time, stay safe….

Kaisercraft Flower Shoppe..

This week I have some cards I made with Kaisercraft Flower Shoppe paper collection. I purchased the 6″ pad, matching collectables, and a couple of the 12 x 12 sheets for the fussy cutting potential. I haven’t added anything else except one ribbon bow, and some bling.I have managed to have a couple of crafting days today, so i am feeling a lot less stressed! its amazing what a little crafty time does…til next time, stay safe….

Uniquely Creative Dreamer part 1..

I oreder an Advent kit from Uniquely Creative..there are 25 envelopes in it and you open one each day. The first envelope was this gorgous Dreamer paper collection, and these cards have been made with the first few envelopes. the second envelope was matching creative cuts. It is great fun opening an envelope with crafting goodies every day but I admit I opened them all at once! Dont judge me – I couldn’t resist! But in keeping with the spirit of the game I am only using the relevant envelopes so that I dont give away any surprises. The last card here is a slimline card. Now to the exciting news son Daniel is coming back from Sydney to live here! He accepted a job offer here in his home town, and so i have been clearing out my card room/ craft storage area so that he can stay with us until he settles back home and gets his own place so at the moment most of my craft equipment is in the shed. Oh well, a very small price to pay to have him safe at home again. Til next time, stay safe ….

Mintay Urban Jungle part 2…

Her, as promised are the other 3 cards i have made so far with Mintay urban Jungle..a week late, I know, But things have been happening! First we were sent into a deep lockdown due to an outbreak of Covid. Thankfully our wonderful health professionals were on top of the contact tracing so swiftly we didn’t have to endure a very long “nothing but supermarkets and medical places open” for very long at all, and things are now almost back to normal with minimal restrictions. So a great time to craft I hear you say? No. My son is finally coming home after spending four years interstate, and not being able to see him all this year, there is nothing but excitement here as I empty my craft room to give him a place to lay his head until he gets his own place. Also now that the shops are finally open I have to do a last minute push to finish the Christmas shopping. Crafting will happen, but it is going to be sporadic for a while!In the meantime stay safe, Til next time….

Uniquely Creative Something Blue

This week I received the new Uniquely Creative paper collection and ephemera for November. It’s called Something Blue, very pretty with lots of fussy cutting potential! These are the first three cards I have made, just the papers, a little cardstock a touch of lace and a couple of wooden embellishments. The last card is a slim line card..I have been trying these out, and I like them! Til next time..stay safe…

Mintay Merry and Bright continued…

This week we are back to Christmas makes with Mintay Merry and Bright paper collection. I really haven’t added very much at all to the papers, some of the sentiments are from Uniquely Creative cut apart sentiment sheet, and the third card has a few Christmas themed flowers. In real time on my craft desk today is a new range from Mintay called Urban Jungle and I am going to start on that. For now though, til next time , stay safe….

A Break from Christmas…

This week I am taking a break from Christmas makes to show a few cards I have made from Mintay Beauty in Bloom. It’s spring here, and this paper collection is all about that. I haven’t added too much more than just the papers with some fussy cut elements, a little ribbon and lace of course! Another quiet week here, doing some sewing, reading, gardening and of course card making! Til next time, stay safe…
