Delightfully Detailed

Oh boy am I LOVING the new Annual Catalogue .... and the Delightfully Detailed Laser cut papers are REALLY floating my boat .... I made 4 cards and 1 matching envelope from just ONE of the 12 x 12 sheets ..... and the cards are not the small size they are all A5 cards ...

This is the pattern of the large 12 x 12 sheet ...... and here are the cards and the envelope I made from 1 sheet .... I used Coastal Cabana card stock for my base cards ...

Cards 1 and 2 

Matching envelope
I made 2 of these cards .... 

 Sooooo there you go 4 A5 cards and a matching envelope

Sympathy Card

Most of us as Card makers hate when we have to make a Sympathy card ... it needs to be respectful and hopefully bring a little comfort to the recipient .... 

I recently found out that a distant cousins husband had died and needed to make her a sympathy card .... I decided i didn't want a very somber looking card but something that brought a little bit of warmth .   It's hard to explain exactly what I mean....    Any way i came up with this very simple  design, but was unsure about the colouring;  so I posted it in a couple of very select card making groups I am in on Facebook to get some thoughts on how they thought the colour was .

I really did get some lovely comments from everyone and they all thought the colour was perfect as it was sedate but not too somber and that it comes across as a warm and loving colour/card.    So I feel much happier now... 

Sometimes we just need that bit of support when making a difficult card and I feel lucky to be apart of the groups I am in..    THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO COMMENTED AND PUT MY MIND AT EASE IN SENDING THE CARD OUT .     You are all appreciated

Stamp a Stack Craft Day 

Hey every one ... It's been a while since I last posted .... 

I held a Craft day last weekend and it was such a fun day .... the aim was for everyone to make 24 cards with their kit ..... well I am not sure anyone actually did make all the cards but the ladies defiantly had a lot of fun ... and there was soooo much left in their kits that they had loads left over to make more cards when they got home ....
Here are some of the cards they got to make ..... these are only the ones that i designed,  I had help from the lovely Naomi Dawn also designed some of the cards and if you go to her page you will see the other cards that the ladies got to make ..

If you want any information on the products used just send me a message or click my SHOP button to take you straight to my store

Here is one I created using the triple layer technique .... how ever the only tutorials I have ever seen use 3 layers of white card to stamp on .....  this to me causes a few problems .... and 2 of the main ones are ..... I get a white halo where ever the next layer of card is when I stamp .... I really don't like that and secondly .... what a waste of card !!!!

Week 5 of 7 Weeks of Christmas 2017

Hello ..... well hopefully you have just come from my youTube video and liked what i made ....

I know this weeks video was a bit 'different'  but I wanted to show you how sometimes things have a way of going in total different directions but to never give up as you will eventually do something that you are happy with ....  

After all that is what crafting is ALL about .... trying new things  ... experimenting and coming up with something new  and not everything works all the time  .... after all we can't learn if we don't make mistakes can we .... or as Thomas Edison said ' I didn't fail .... I found 10,000 ways it wouldn't work !!' 

so lets get to the photos of Week 5's Christmas Make ...

I really do love how this turned out  .... and as you can see I added a small little tinsel bow at the bottom .... It really needed a pop of colour ....

So the added bonus tutorial ( well you cant really call this on a tutorial can you lol ) 

As you can see these adorable little baubles can be added to most things they are so cute .... get your order in while you can as the seasonal catalogue they are in ends at the end of December 2017 ...

Well Week 4 is a cute little folded box made from 1 piece of 12 x 12 DSP ...

I found the tutorial on youTube by a lady called Stamping T .... link to original tutorial ...

Its a little hard to explain in writing so I would advise you to watch either Stamping T or my own tutorial on it as its much easier to follow ....
