Under the Weather

A friend of work had some bad news concerning her mum last week and I felt so sorry but can't actually do anything. Well, I can make a card. I love the sentiment "wishing you brighter days" which is perfect for her. Aren't the love-heart raindrops lovely? I cut them out using the matching framelit and attached them to the card using a rolled up glue dot. They are tiny so dimensionals weren't going to do the job!

Mint Macaron Pocket Card

I find lots of inspiration from a fellow English demonstrator Julie Kettlewell. If you haven't found her yet (unlikely) then take a look at her blog.

Julie made a lovely pocket card using the stamp set "Birthday Blossoms" so I thought I'd give it a whirl using the mini treat bag thinlit which I haven't actually used for anything yet. I used Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron which is one of my favourite combinations.

Stamps : Birthday Blossoms
Ink : Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake
Cardstock : Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Accessories : Big Shot, Mini Treat Bag Thinlit, Lots of Labels Framelit, Jumbo 1/2 Pearls, Aquapainter, Mint Macaron Lace Ribbon.

Just been playing with one of the new stamp sets "Floral Phrases". I love how gentle and soft this set is. Perfect for a vintage feel, or crisp and fresh on whisper white with a primary colour. Going to have fun playing with this one.

New Home CAS

My Auntie Sal moved house on Friday and I'm so excited for her. It's a new start in a new place so I wanted to make a card to welcome her to her new home. Unfortunately, one of my favourite sets didn't make it from the Holiday mini to the new catalogue. However, it won't stop me from using it. I LOVE THIS SET!

2016 GRAD!

I'm going to a good friend's daughter's Graduation party tonight. I decided to come up with a "2016" card and thought the Z-Fold style would be perfect! A link to Dawn's video instructions can be found via this link

I was looking for a good "graduation" sentiment and thought this one fit the bill perfectly. It's such an exciting time for a young person. Good luck to you, Caitlyn!
