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! Til tomorrow….

Cottage Rose number 9

IMG_0608 (Medium)IMG_0605 (Medium)back to normal blogging today, and this is the final card in my Cottage Rose (Kaisercraft) series, although I do still have some papers left so we will revisit this collection at some stage! I did a gatefold card for this one because I just thought the door was great for this style, and the bottom photo shows what is inside the card when you open the door!All 12 x 12 papers on this one, and some lovely die cut foilage  with a die from Kaisercraft, and a couple of Prima and Green Tara flowers. The greeting you can see inside was die cut with my kaisercraft occassions die.I have uploaded my video showing you how I make my folding box cards, the link to my youtube channel is over there in the right hand margin!Today i am busy fulfilling orders, then I have a clear desk to just create and relax before heading back to work on Monday – that two weeks went far too quickly! Til tomorrow….
