An Elegant Birthday

Hello Bloggers,
Today I want to share with you a card that I've made for my Mother's birthday.  I've used a new die from Joy Crafts "French Lilly Oval" 6002/0254 that I purchased from Jacqui at Kookaburra Crafts.  It's a beautiful intricate die and I can see a lot of uses for it. I had a lot of fun playing with it and absolutely love the end result.
Kookaburra Crafts runs 4 cardmaking classes per week (check out the blog for more information) and Jacqui decided to have a combined Christmas party this year and have a card competition as part of the day, there was no theme to the competition and I entered and won with this card, so I'm really happy with it and I thank everyone who voted for it.
Thanks for dropping by,

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas Bloggers,

I would like to wish everyone out there a really wonderful, safe and blessed Christmas and New Year.

Here it is Christmas night and I’m blogging, but I wanted to share just a couple of the many Christmas cards I made.  These are ones I was really happy with and they are also for family members.

Three of the five cards use the Spellbinders Majestic Labels 25 which I’ve really fallen in love with, it is just beautiful. They all use Spellbinders and Marianne Design dies and lots of layers and handmade flowers.






Thanks for stopping by,

Christmas Cards!

Hi Bloggers,

Just a quick blog today.  I was asked to make some Christmas cards as a donation to my Nieces ballet group for a fundraiser they are doing, so I thought I would share them with you.

These are a great little design if you are after something quick and easy to do in bulk.  I’ve used 1 sheet of white A4 cardstock cut in half then folded one piece in half for the card base, with the remaining half I’ve cut it down to 9.5cm x 13.8cm (embossed this piece with a holly embossing folder from “Embossalicious”) and 6cm x 11.5cm (stamped the bottom of this piece with a “Merry Christmas” sentiment from Justrite).  Die cut a Christmas tree (using the free die from the Australian Simply Cards magazine) from glitter foam and attached that to the stamped piece of white cardstock.  I’ve then cut 2 pieces of coloured cardstock that match the glitter foam to 14.3cm x 10cm and 6.5cm x 12cm.  I’ve attached the embossed white panel and die cut panel to the appropriate coloured matts and then glued the embossed panel to the card base, attached a bow to the Christmas tree panel and mounted it with foam tape to the embossed panel. There you have it, quick and simple.



Happy crafting!
