Custom card: A distance birthday

Earlier in the year I became a pen pal to some one I knew in passing back in Perth. She now lives in Brighton, England and her birthday is coming up, so I created this card for her. She is a vet and loves animals and nature (I think), I was also trying out some different styles of card creation. 


This has a bit of everything in it, from Meg's Garden papers to Kaisercraft wood flourishes and some Prima Market embellishments as well.




This is how the twist easel card looks when it is closed.

Christmas is coming: Meg's garden paper

I came across some Christmas papers from Meg's Garden last week, and after going through Meg's Garden Blog, I thought I was give making a card not in my usual style, something a little more fluffy and pretty. To be quite honest I think I did rather well, and I like the card, now I need to figure out who it send it to for Christmas.

Jewellery Stand

I had a jewellery stand made for me which has been sitting with a raw finish for months. I wanted to frame it and paint it, but I have little inspiration.  

While at the locale hardware store I came across this rather simple moulding and the rest sort of developed in my mind. So I made the frame and painted the whole thing black.


I pulled out some paints and ink pads and got right in to painting the moulding.

I found some gears and cogs in my collection of embellishments and add those. So glad this is raw any more and so happy with the final product.

Mini Album #7 Periwinkel


After the last few weeks with study and work I needed a project that would keep my mind off things. A friend made the suggestion to make another mini album, knowing how much I LOVE making them.

I had NO idea what papers to use, so I started with just the base and posted up sneak peaks on Instagram.


I eventually decided on my paper collection, Kaisercraft Periwinkle


After finishing with the base pages and the patterned I then needed to work on the embellishments.


The final product is as follows:




 


  












So, with heaps of pages and journal cards.

It will be for sale on my Etsy store click here
