Butterfly Fun

I had a few extra minutes the other day and decided I it was a good time to play with the butterfly thinlits I bought a while ago. They are so cool and delicate, love the way they cut out. There will hopefully be a few more cards made with these 🙂


And that paper is so delightful too.  It’s from the Pretty Petals Designer Paper Stack, so many designs in the booklet, well worth getting.

Stamps- Butterfly Basics
Colours-Pacific Point, Old Olive,  Calypso Coral.

Mini Treat Bag

One of the new framelits in the Occassion Catalogue is a mini treat bag.  I’ve only had a small opportunity to play so far but I ca see great potential.  Especially for Easter gifts.  I ended up making the bag and a card insert, it’s very simple, but sometimes simple is good.  I especially loved how the colour combination turned out. Really liked the brown colours with the red and blue.

Sea Street

I don’t often make children’s cards, by kids are a bit past that age.  And I’m very much a floral girl. But, I couldn’t resist this cute stamp set.  I bought it in the pre-order and just hadn’t used it yet, until last night.  Trying to get out of my comfort zone I whipped this up, I don’t think it came out too badly.  🙂  I’m interested to see what else I can do with it.

Christmas Card Blitz

Because that’s what I’ve been doing.  The one thing I try to achieve with my Xmas cards are to make them simple and easy to recreate, I try to do 4 or 5 designs a year and reproduce them, I don’t think I have the creative brain at the moment to do individual designs lol.  I really like these ones, especially the Mingle All The Way with the trees and the Seasons Greetings.  Something about the monochrome green combo makes me all happy inside.  Hope you like them, if you do please leave a comment below, I think people are reading this but would love to know what you think.  Cheers!

Happy-HolidaysThe colours here are Cheery Cobbler, Blackberry Bliss and Always Artichoke.


Garden Green, Sahara Sand and Pistachio Pudding.


My favourite, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Garden Green.

Perfect Pennants

Sometimes it’s really hard trying to think of what to write on a blog.  Especially when all you’re doing is writing a card and you aren’t sure how many people are reading it lol.  But, I think the colours on this card really make it pop, the Pumpkin Pie and Pacific Point go really well together.  Not quite sure about the big flowers at the front but live and learn.  All in all, it’s still a pretty nice card in my humble opinion.




Well, this is amazing, I’m still posting!  Seems I’m getting my love of card making back after so long, very happy.  Hopefully I’ll be able to keep it up.  🙂  This is the card I made today, I really do like how it turned out, I find it very difficult to make cards that can be masculine.  I don’t seem to buy enough sets for it, I tend to stick to flowers and girly things.  This was made using the Hardwood background stamp, which I am going to use again very soon, it’s so cool.  And the Perfect Pennants set.  The colours are Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Tangelo Twist and Lost Lagoon.  The last 2 are the new incolours for this year. 🙂
