Flower with a butterfly stamp


Happy Friday! Today's blog post title is confusing, isn't it? I  could not come up with a more creative way of saying it, lol. This week I had some  time to play  and this was the result. As I am taking an online card class with ALTENEW, one of the things I learned this week was to look at your stamps differently and add your own accent to it.....Especially your solid stamps, adding some lines with a fine tip black marker and inking it up partially and stamping off. The flowers on this card are actually made from a (half) butterfly stamp from the set Painted Butterflies from Altenew, if you look hard you might still "see" it...I asked Sheila she can bring this set to the store and she is!! So if you want a set, please ask her to order it for you!
This was a lot of fun to create!!! Love learning new things, trying out new things that I could have never come up with. I added some shine to it with the wink of Stella pen and added the dots and black pearls.
                           Hope you like it! Till next time, Anja

Memory Box and Avery Elle Dies!!

 Happy Thursday everyone!!  Today I am showing you three "Judy" cards that were created with the same two dies...one from Memory Box and one new Avery Elle!! 
 
 http://www.scrappingreatdeals.com/Memory-Box-Stem-Triptych-Die-POP-1524-Floral.html
 

Here are the three cards, each with a different sentiment from the Avery Elle set and a different method of using the Memory Box Die.  Judy also used Mirri Board and White Fun Foam on the cards.  We love when Judy shows us the versatility of dies...so many options!!




Have a great day everyone!!

My favourite crafty hobby is making mini albums for the hundreds of photos I take. I also like to make interactive cards for special occasions.

I enjoy making cards with the design that I coloured myself. It is very relaxing and I can give these handmade cards to special friends and family.

I love scrapbooking! Its my time out! I make cards but really enjoy doing page layouts. When people see my space they say I have to much stuff but you never know when you want that special item! Sometimes I can't turn my thoughts off and have been known to complete a page in the middle of the night! I love flowers! I love shopping for scrapbook items! I see everything and think how can I apply that to a card or a layout. It is my passion and pass it on to who will listen or will create with me! Faye

"All Star" Kit

Happy Monday! I hope that everyone enjoyed some family time this weekend to celebrate Father's Day.

Today, I wanted to show you a kit that I created which I called "All Star". It is a masculine layout using Carta Bella's Collection "Work Hard Play Hard". I thought that you could use this kit for a husband, son, father, etc. Included in the kit, you get a full page of Sport Labels which you can fussy cut according to the subject(s) of your layout. If you have a loved one who is into baseball and hockey, there are several ticket stubs and ephemera to use. If instead, your loved one is into racing and soccer, there are several elements for those sports. So you can choose what will apply to your layout and cut out what you need with still lots left over for another layout.

I used this die from Kaiser Craft and cut it in half for each page and added some metal hearts from Prima.


This is the layout:


Remember to check our blog and Facebook page for upcoming classes as well as TT and WW and Scrappin Monday which will take place next Monday.

Pink Poppy

Good Morning Everyone,

Want to show you some cards I made with the A4 Decoupage pack from Santoro London. This one is called Pink Poppy. You get enough supplies to make 8 cards, two of the 4 designs. This would be a fun kit to do with your kids, grandkids or yourself. It is like doing paper toll but most of the work is done for you.








Thanks for looking and have a great day.
