Birthday Celebration

Hi Stampers. Hope you are having a good start to the week. Today I am sharing a card I made using the Graphic 45 Botanical Tea papers and Pion " A Day in May" Papers. The base of this card is Stampin Up card stock in Blushing Bride.

I didn't want my card to end "fussy" as that's just not my style. I wondered if I should have added some flowers and leaves though. Something to think about before my next attempt! I'd love to hear your comments. Thank you for visiting and I hope you will come again.

For You...

TGIF Stampers! Just a quick post today on the latest card I've made. This is a great way to use up left over paper scraps. We all have drawer loads of scraps and I hate to waste any of it. 

 Thanks for stopping in today. Hope you have a great weekend. Please come again!

Frame it technique

Hi Stampers. Hope you had a great weekend and are ready for the week ahead. Todays project is a technique of building your own frame using various stamps. So simple but so effective. Here is a look

I've used the Morning Meadow Stampin Up stamp set to build my frame. I masked off part of the image and with my stamp-a-ma-jig I was able to place the image exactly where I wanted it! Another way to make use of your stamps. You will be seeing me use this technique in future projects to come.

 This card I made just because…

 I hope you have enjoyed stopping by. Please leave your comments as I would love to hear from you! Enjoy your week and please come again.

A Beautiful thing….

Welcome Stampers! Today I want to share a new vintage card I've been busy creating in the studio. I am so excited over the colours in the project….so soft and feminine ! When I spotted this paper I fell in love with the little birds. I am so pleased I have found a new stash of papers that suit my style. Not sure why companies are moving away from the vintage theme but as long as Pion keep creating their lovely papers I am ok:-))

 I couldn't leave the inside blank with so much gorgeous paper lying around! All I need now is to decide on a sentiment for this space.

 If you like what you've seen be sure to stop in again. I am adding all new designs using the Pion designer papers….so lush!

 Have a wonderful day!

Happy Birthday to You

Hi Stampers! Hope you are having a good week thus far. I am finding it difficult to squeeze in much crafting time at the moment but hopefully that will change. I miss being in my craft studio!

I have however managed to create this birthday card for a special friend. I didn't want it to be too "girly" so I chose to use this colour combination.  I've used Crisp Cantaloupe,Soft Suede and very vanilla.

 Thank you so much for stopping by. I would love to hear from you so please take the time and leave a comment. Have a wonderful week and come again.

Altered Frame featuring Papillon Potpourri

TGIF Stampers! How many of you plan to spend time in the crafting room this weekend? I do! I am looking forward to getting all my things out and creating something.

 Today's project is an altered frame using the Papillon Potpourri stamp set by Stampin Up.  I recently opened my Etsy shop and my first sale was to a friend. When I asked what sentiment she wanted included inside she said "leave it blank I intend to frame it". Light bulb moment! I worked it out in my mind….and the next day began working on it.

 So as I said , it was all worked out in my mind how I would design it. Things were going surprisingly smoothly( which never happens ). I was beaming with pride at how I had advanced as a master crafter. Everything glued and tacked down securely. Yes it was a masterpiece. I must get the photos taken I thought to myself while the light is still good. And that is when disaster occurred. I had glued it all upside down in the frame! I couldn't help but laugh. The best laid plans and all that …..

 I hope you have enjoyed stopping by and will come again. Have a WONDERFUL weekend!!!

Kraft Envelope & Mixed Media Mini Album

Hi Stampers and welcome to my craft sanctuary. Have you ever had days when you feel a little guilty for all the money you've spent on your craft stash? I have until I realised just how much I am saving by not paying a therapist ! I can now freely craft without the guilt lol.

 Anyways on to todays project. Wow this album has to be the longest project I've had running. I wanted to take my time on this album and include some of the inspiration I have found in various projects. At long last here it is………..

This album is a great use for the left over paper scraps. 

I love all the pockets ths album has to storing photos, ticket stubs, whatever items the receiver considers memorable. 

Only thing left to do is make a few photo mats for the pockets. I will only make 4 as I want to leave plenty of pocket space for this & that.

I hope you have enjoyed this album. I have loved creating it. I love the fact I could make use of paper that's been lying around waiting for me:-) And now that I have cleared out some space and realise how much I have been saving my dear ole hubby on therapy…….well I am off the the craft store!!

I would love to hear your feedback and please come again.
