Cards



Hi there

It's the time of the year when Thank you Cards and Christmas Cards need to be made.

I used my November kit  from A Piece of Cake Designs to whip up a couple of cards for a few special people in our lives.


This first one was created for Jessica's teacher.
I friend made a print for me with a hand carved stamp so I used it for the main element then added some papers from the kit as a background with a super cute Cherry Flair!
Simple but effective!


The next one is for Jess' OSHC carer.This chick is a champ and I love her to bits!
Using a simple Heidi paper in the background, I used the die cuts as the main elements and stapled on the acetate words to keep it super simple with a Cherry Flair being the hero of this card!
I hope she like it ( I have also got her a custom print from the gorgeous Jodie at PolkaDot Creative)



And this final card is for my sister who has her birthday in the first week of January.
I've been making a few shaker cards recently - I have forgotten how easy and effective they are!
This is my fave paper from this collection - it's nice and girly and will suit my sister perfectly!


I added a couple of flowers from my stash and some seam binding to add some dimension to the card.


Thanks for stopping by & have a great day

White with one ......


Hi there

This month the challenge over at White With One is .....
White with Paloma



The Creative Team have also been lucky enough to have been gifted with some awesome embellishments from Charm’s Creations to use on their layouts. Its interesting to see how the same embellies have been used in some many different ways!  Check out the rest of the teams creations Here.

Charm has an incredible range of gorgeous handmade embellishments in all sorts of colours and hues. Check out her store here.


I went thru my paper stash and came up with some very similar shades of Paloma - Grey and came up with this page featuring my gorgeous girls from work, Meg, Julie & Sam. These girls mean the world to me - they are my work family - they have hearts of gold and souls to match.







Thanks for stopping by - make sue you head over to White with One and to Charms page and have a look!

Have a great day

together ... Cameo love

Hey guys

How has your week been?
Managed to get any creating done?

Today I'm showing a page I created using the Jewel Sentiments Cut Files and the November Cupcake kit



I wanted to cut some shapes into the background and this file was perfect.

I took the file of the two triangles duplicated them a few times to create the background I was after and the set it to cut.

I used snippets of the gorgeous Heidi Swapp paper and adhered them behind each cut out to add some colour.

I decided it needed a little splash of ink so I used the Prima Ink pad, made a little puddle of ink, added a generous amount of water and them splattered it onto my background!

 

I used the 'together' cut file from the Gather Together Cut Files released this month and inked it also in the Blue Prima Ink!


Thanks for stopping by ... Have a great weekend!
