Workshop cards 29.09.16...

Good morning guys!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend..our's was a good one, well actually the weekend was pretty relaxed but Friday was super fun as we had a day trip to London..I vlogged the day, so you can watch it over on my Youtube channel if you want :) 

Sunday I spent the day in the craft room designing & prepping for this weeks workshops. 
I was playing with the new Pretty Pines dies & OMG they are great!! I made 4 cards using them & couldn't decide on just one for workshop so we're going to be making 2!!

Whenever we make 2 cards it's always tight for time..but if we do a little less chatting & messing around (& singing!!) we should be fine :)

so here are the 2 cards I decided on...


...aren't they pretty???



...I love them both!!



..The colours, the texture, the design!! (& those tiny little pearl sprigs are just divine!!)

Can you tell I really love these cards?!?  I'll definitely be doing all my Christmas cards using these dies!!

Paperettes - I hope you like them as much as I do, & I'll see you all Thursday :)

Scrapbook layout!

..I have another layout to share with you today, I actually made this one a few weeks ago & I shared it in a vlog but I don't think I've ever got around to blogging it..

anyway the photo's are super old, they were taken on Sofie's 7th Birthday (& she's 15 now!)..



The collection I used is the Simple Stories 'Let's Party' collection. I'm starting to run out of this collection & I think I might need to buy more! the colours are great, and apart from the 'cow' everything else is really easy to use :)

I made the Polaroid style frames by a rectangle & then using a smaller square die to die-cut the centre out. since making this layout I've actually gone ahead a purchased the Lawn fawn Polaroid die but in all honesty it's super easy to do without a die & you can adjust the size to suit too!!

I hope it inspires you a litte.

Besties Design Team card...

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends!

I hope you're having a lovely day whatever you're up to??

Today is 'Same but different' at My Besties blog & here's my design team card..


she was a lovely one to colour..I actually done her at one of my Copic evenings & just used all the pretty colours I could find! :)


I then used papers & embellishments from the Maggie Holmes Confetti collection to make her in to a card.

Why don't you give her a go?..You can find her HERE.

..This week at my workshops we're playing with a whole heap of brand new goodies! A selection of new Lawn fawn dies..a new stencil..a new line of patterned papers..but I'm most excited about the Happy Hedgehogs set from MFT!!! I knew this'd be a popular set & I'm thrilled I managed to get my inky hands on it early :)

Super!...

Hi guys..I hope you're having a SUPER weekend! 

Both of my cards today use SUPER stamps & dies from MFT 

 'Super Boy' stamp & die..



& 'You're Super' stamp & die..



both images were coloured using Copic markers. The background on the boy one was made using a MFT 'sun ray' stencil & distress ink. on the girl card I used a MFT 'star' background stamp with Stampin up Real Red ink.

These are fun cards to make, you should give them a try!

I hope they inspire you a little :)

See you soon,

Besties card..

...Hi Guys! & Happy September to you!! I can't actually believe we're in september already - where is the year going?!?!?..

I'm here today with my Besties design team card - The theme this month is 'Fall' so I made this card using lovely fall/autumn colours..


I hope you like her :)

 & please head over to the besties blog & play along yourself!!


This card is actually a little late going up - I normally have my post scheduled to go live first thing but I've been having a major laptop crisis!!!...my laptop crashed & died a couple of days ago & so I had to rush out, buy another one & re-install all my programs & documents etc!!...& I'm sure you all know how much of a pain that is!!! :(

I'm getting there & normal blogging will resume shortly I promise.

Workshop card 01.09.16..

..Hi guys, Are you enjoying the bank holiday weekend? Ours has been really nice, a lovely relaxed weekend, with little craft room time too :) 

At workshops this week we're making rolled flowers for our card... 

I have quite a selection of rolled flower dies now so I decided it was about time we played with them!


  they make such pretty flowers..


 ..I saw this colour combo - Pink, Grey & Pool on some bedding in M&S a while ago & absolutely loved it! I knew it'd be a great combo for a card so I snapped a pic to refer back to :)


...do you ever do that?? Inspiration really is everywhere, but unless I take a pic I forget it as soon as I get in the craft room!!!....

a card...

..Morning guys! I hope you had a lovely weekend..

One of my lovely friends hosted a BBQ for all of the Paperettes on Sunday, & although our weather hasn't been amazing lately thankfully the sun shone when we needed it to :) I did take the camera to try & vlog it for you but I'm not sure the footage was the best! we shall see :)

Sunday was also my friend Lynn's birthday & I made her this card..



I actually coloured the image a while ago as part of the Kathy Rac colouring challenge.


Such a pretty little Tiddyinks image! ADORABLE!! & that 'Happy Birthday' banner from Stampin up is just perfect :)

See you soon
