Quilling - Birthday Card #2

Again this card was inspired by 'Rose Cottage Cards' quilling.

Quilling - Birthday Card

This card was also inspired by 'Rose Cottage Cards'. I'm really feeling my way with quilling, but I'm determined to master it as it's so much fun and artistic, but at the moment a little difficult.

Quilling - Sympathy card

Not sure why this is sideways but unfortunately it's determined to remain that way. These cards were cased from the very talented 'Rose Cottage Cards', a lady who is rather inspirational when it comes to all things quilled.

Azza Scrapbooking - french style scrapbooking

Well I am so thrilled that I was invited to attend a scrapbooking afternoon with some lovely ladies to learn about Azza french style scrapbooking. I'll post a photo ASAP but it's just such an effective and cost saving way of scrapbooking. The focus is on letting the pictures speak for themselves. I'm sure you will soon be sick of me posting about Azza scrapbooking as I feel a new addition creeping in! Shhhh....!

Baby Expecting cards

A friend of mine's daughters are expecting which is just sooooo exciting! The pink and black card was made a while ago. However the thought of having to be creative sent me into a slight panic. I've lost my crafty mojo but I was determined to make another one today - I was fairly happy with the result.

Easel calendar card - various

Over the last few days I thought I'd make a start on my Christmas pressies for this year. I always give my work colleagues a christmas ornament (which I bought during the after Christmas sales last year). I'm not always this organised I can assure you! But I also wanted to make something unique and special. I'm really into easel cards at the moment so this calendar easel card developed. I'm trying to mix up the 'styles' to suit the personalities/style of my colleagues. Here are a few samples to give you some ideas.

We will also be making a similar version of the red easel card at the next ladies card making day.

Products used:
1st blue easel - Kaisercraft paper, Stampin Up Baja Breeze card stock and ink, Stampin up Vintage Vogue stamp set & Sea Worthy stamp set (wording), corrugated card.

2nd red easel - Stampin Up Riding Hood Red card stock and ink, Stampin Up Medallion stamp set, Stampin Up scallop circle punch, red ribbon, co-ordinating paper.

3rd & 4th yellow easel - Kaisercraft Lush Collection stamp set, japanese paper, various yellow & black cardstock, chinese embellishment.

Scrapbooking - Bush walk updated

Not sure why this is sideways???

Well I'm sure I'm not the first to do this (and probably not the last), but after waking up still not happy with my first scrapbooking attempt, I pulled it apart and tried again. I'm now much more satisfied and finished off the 2nd page. These are my new versions.
