Uniquely Creative Wise and Free..

_MG_1256 (Medium)_MG_1259 (Medium)_MG_1219_MG_1220Here are some more cards I made with Uniquely Creative Wise and Free paper collection and matching Creative cuts. I have added various die cuts that were on my desk waiting to be used, and ribbon, lace,just a few flowers ( on the lower card) and gorgeous little clear resin domes in the centre of some of the flowers. I often have die cuts on my desk waiting to be used because if I have scraps of paper that are too small for layering i will do some die cutting to use them up rather than throw them away, and it’s handy just to be able to grab them when I am in the middle of creating. It’s been another wet and windy week here, just lovely, and toasty warm inside now that we have our new heaters installed – its been perfect for crafting and I have a mountain of cards waiting for Nathan to photo..he can’t keep up! Til next time, stay safe….

Mintay Cosy Evening..

IMG_2250IMG_2252This week I was working on a project with Mintay Cosy Evening, and I had a few leftovers. Rather than store them away I made a few cards with them. I added nothing to the finished cards…solely the paper, with a little fussy cutting. I am happy to say all scraps have been dealt with! I have spent so many happy hours sitting at my craft desk, I am so glad I have this hobby at this time, escaping to a happy creating space. I have even taken the time to find some of my older stamp sets, and have been embracing inky fingers again! Til next time, stay safe….

Uniquely creative Wise and Free 3 and 4..

IMG_2019IMG_2020 I was sitting in the craft room doing some die cutting, but the heat was too much..it’s 10:30 am here and already 32C and more than a little bit humid, so I have moved to a cooler part of the house.Todays cards continue our series of Uniquely creative paper collection, matching Creative cuts, and assorted pretty bling . The owls on the top card have little clear resin domes over their eyes, and i have inked all my edges with Frayed Burlap distress ink. There is also a chipboard feather on the top card which I painted with Nuvo platinum mousse. i am now revising my crafty plans for today, I think I will stamp out some images, dig out my copics and sit under the air con vent! Til next time….

_MG_1095 (Medium)_MG_1096 (Medium)_MG_1097 (Medium)Todays cards are made with kaisercraft ladylike 6″ pad, and matching collectables. I only bought one of the 12 x 12 sheets..the one with all the roses on it.. a fussy cutters dream paper! I have added lots of lovely lace, flowers and die cut branches and leaves. I love the colours of this paper, and have just made and made with it. I will be missing for a week or two, as my cruise leaves on Monday. I have already packed my cruise class suitcase and I am looking forward to meeting lots of lovely crafters. I will be back! til next time….

Mintay Together..

_MG_1051 (Medium)_MG_1053 (Medium)Two cards today made with Mintay by Carole Together 12 x 12 paper collection. The top card has lots of fussy cutting, and I have just added a few fabric flowers in the lower left corner, as well as a sentiment. The lower card still has a little fussy cut elements, but has more added bits…lace, a chipboard corner ,white die cut leaves, some more flowers, and an extra layer. the chipboard corner blends in better in real life! I have had a lovely crafty week, but now all the cards I have made need inserts as a finishing touch, so that is my job today! Til next time….

Kaisercraft Lady Like ..the first one..

IMG_1854This week I purchased Kaisercraft lady like 6″ pad, a packet of collectables, and a couple of sheets of the 12 x 12 papers. After a lovely afternoon of fussy cutting, dinner was put on the back burner ( literally!) while I made this first card.. I just couldn’t resist ! For this one I used the 12 x 12 papers, and the die is a Uniquely Creative little Leaves die. Today roast is in the oven and I am off to make more, this time with lots of lace, ribbon and bling… til next time…

Kaisercraft Rosabella 1,2,3, and 4..

_MG_0249 (Medium)_MG_0252 (Medium)_MG_0254 (Medium)_MG_0256 (Medium)Todays cards are a few I made with Kaisercraft Rosabella collection. I used the 6″ pad and matching collectables and as you can see I added all sorts of bits and pieces – all of which were laying around on my craft desk at the time – bits of lace, odd die cuts,flowers, ribbon, and my homemade frames – all ended up on these cards! I did enjoy this collection and I have a few more cards to show you next time, I even did a class pack with this one. This week I packed up Christmas crafting, finished packing the cruise classes, and I am all organised to pick a collection and get going – I have so many paper packs that I haven’t really used yet so its going to be fun going through them all! Til next time….

MIntay Bloomville..

IMG_1586IMG_1588IMG_1590IMG_1592I have had the best fun making cards with Mintay Bloomville paper collection.. I have used nothing but the papers and some cardstock and layering for these ones, and lots of fussy cutting! I haven’t done any crafting this weekend – my son is visiting from Sydney and we had a wedding to attend yesterday. It’s been a busy weekend. This week I am officially packing all the Christmas craft supplies back into the craft storage in the shed, finalising the cruise lesson packing, and then can concentrate on my craft fair boxes..I have to sort through them all and see what is needed in them. That’s me sorted for the week! Til next time…..
