Uniquely Creative Dreamer Part 3…

Two final cards today made with uniquely Creative Dreamer paper collection. For the first card I die cut a file die ( UC brand) and decorated inside and out. the second image shows the inside decoration. The third image is a very simple card using some of the matching Creative cuts that are available with this collection. I have thoroughly enjoyed making these pretty in pink cards, next time there are some for the boys! Happy new year to all…Til next time, stay safe.

The images in this paper collection are so cute, I’ve done a little fussy cutting, and I had these white cardstock frames on my desk from another project which I thought would make a great start on a couple of shaker cards. I used Acetate for the windows, and filled with uniquely Creative craft sprinkles. I haven’t made shaker cards before, but I am happy with the result.Well, that’s Christmas over for another year, and a strange one it was. My husband was over in Sydney with one son, while I stayed here in Adelaide with the other. The good news is just a week until they are back here with us, and we will celebrate then! 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 ..my 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 1…

This week I have some cards I made with Mintay Urban Jungle. I love this collection of papers because we have all these plants here at our house, my son looks after them, and one of these cards will be his birthday card next month! I haven’t added anything to these, just a metal butterfly and a little book print page on the third card. The rest just relied on the papers and lots of fussy cutting. Today is hot and stormy here, lots of thunder and lightning, and very warm, so as humid as you can imagine! We have also just come out of a really hard lockdown, very strict, with no leaving your house except for medical and essential groceries, but we all did it, and now things are back under control, thank goodness!meanwhile, til next time, stay safe….

Uniquely Creative Something Blue part 2…

Another three cards made with Uniquely Creative Something Blue. All the bits and pieces on these cards were in the creative kit,but everything is also available individually on their website. I love the cool colours in this range.. just what we need today when our temperature is so hot..over 38C ! A cool crafting day for me! Til next time, stay safe…

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…

Uniquely Creative Holly Joly Christmas..

This weeks cards are all made from Uniquely Creative new paper collection called Holly Jolly Christmas. I havent added too much to these, just a few fabric flowers, and a little touch of gold glitter card. The last card was an experiment trying out a slimline card. I have seen these around a lot lately, seems to be the new big thing so thought I would try one. You use a little more cardstock making them, but they fir into a business size envelope, and in Australia cost the same as a letter to post, so just something else to add to the usual sizes,for some diversity!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…

Uniquely Creative Once Upon a Christmas

This week I have been creating cards with the new Uniquely Creative paper collection which is called Once Upon a Christmas. I have done a different fold for these ones, a sort of accordian fold with step down features. I have included an image at the bottom of the inside of one of the cards to give you a better idea. WordPress has changed the way I can do my blog, please let me know if there are any issues your end, I am having a few this end and I am going to have to pay Nathan in double quantities of chocolate to get him to show me all the ins and outs!Til next time, stay safe…

Bits and pieces on my desk…

_MG_1265 (Medium)_MG_1268 (Medium)A little while ago when I was having a bit of a clean up, a few scraps on my desk ( with a little die cutting) were turned into cards. I quite like these ones, and they may be turned into a village ladies class in the near future, when we are finished our Christmas cards. Speaking of…I received my new Uniquely Creative Once upon a Christmas paper pack this week and am enjoying all the fussycutting!Oh, and you can now follow me in instagram at helengreco30!  Thats been my week, hope you are all staying safe, til next time….
