More Ultimate crafts magnolia Lane

IMG_5632 (Medium)IMG_5633 (Medium)The other two cards I made while I had this paper ( ultimate crafts Magnolia Lane0 out on the desk …I love vintage style cards because I get to put lots of lovely ribbon and lace  on them, and I certainly did that with these two! The top card has lots of the collectables that I purchased with the paper layered on top of each other, as well as a doily, a flourish die cut, ribbon and some pearls that were laying on my table.Everything was inked with Tea Dye distress ink. The bottom card is more simple, the strip of paper below the blue ribbon was from the bottom of one of the papers – the identity strip that the barcode is on …sometime these strips come in very handy!butterfly and flower image is from the pack of collectables, and I used some gorgeous soft gathered lace to finish.Today is a day off, and it is a wild wet and stormy day day here, perfect for relaxing in the craft room! til tomorrow….

Magnolia Lane collection

IMG_5629 (Medium)I found some lovely vintage paper that I had to have, it’s called Magnolia lane and the paper company is Ultimate Crafts.I have been  a bit time poor for crafting lately but I did find a spare 1/2 hour to cut into this gorgeous paper. I also bought the matching collectables, and really the papers don’t need much else. Here is the first one , I made it in a gatefold style and decorated the inside as well as the outside.Inked all my edges with tea dye distress ink and the cardstock is from Stampin Up.My Body is protesting at being back at work, my muscles are a wee bit sore, so I am off to fill the hot water bottle and treat my back to some heat!
