The final Uniquely Creative Outback Divine cards…

Here are the last five cards i made with Uniquely Creative Outback Divine paper collection and matching creative cuts. Most of the cards have no extra bits, just the paper and some fussy cutting. The Dingo card ( my sons birthday card) has a windmill die cut, and a couple of the cards have sprinkles of gold pearls, but that’s it. I’m sad I have finished working with this paper for now, I do have a little bit left but have put it away to work on something completely different for a while. The weather has cooled down, we are definitely enjoying autumn now, although it is still warm enough that we enjoyed a beach picnic for tea last night. For now though, its time for me to go cook tonights tea, so til next time….stay safe….

Country Roads final 5…

This week are the final 5 cards I have made with Country Roads paper collection by Uniquely creative. There is a real mix here which just shows how versatile this collection is. I have used about half the pack making this series of cards ( shown over the last three weeks) and I have put the other half away to revisit at a later date when I need more male cards. I havent used much extra bits on these ones, just the matching Creative cuts, a little chipboard, and a couple of windmill die cuts from the Uniquely creative windmill die. I am ready to move on to something frilly and flowery now! Til next time, stay safe,,,

Country Roads…

I know that was a strange Blog Post title , but that is the name of this months paper collection from Uniquely Creative, and next weeks cards might explain the title better! I made these cards with the collection because I had an order to fulfill for teenage boys cards . I added some hessian for texture, and a couple of chipboard pieces for the same reason. It’s been another slow crafting week here, with extreme hot weather which is not good for the stability of my glue, but there is a cooler week forecast for us this week and I am looking forward to that! Til next time, stay safe…

Uniquely Creative Wild ..last two

The last two cards made with the Uniquely Creative Wild collection are a total break from the Dinosaurs, much more feminine and very simple. I used an embossing folder on the top card, and some frondy leaf dies on the lower card. I haven’t done much crafting this week as my husband has been very ill in hospital. He is home now but very weak, so I am playing nurse. The one good thing is we are all out of isolation, so life will gradually get back to new normal. til next time, stay safe….

Going Wild with Dinosaurs!

I have had great fun creating a huge range of Dinosaur cards with Uniquely Creative Wild paper collection. There are many images to fussy cut and I have added little bits of colour here and there. I have two little Great nephews and these cards are perfect for them! As for life here we have two more days of self isolation, all tests have come back negative, and I am in dire need of hitting the supermarket! Til next time, stay safe….

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.

Uniquely Creative Dreamer part 2…

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…
