Table centre piece preview

Just a quick preview on another item I am making for the bridal shower.
It's a table centre piece.
The flowers are made from tissue paper, but I am also using crepe paper. I will decorate a styro foam circle. More details to follow in a later post. I used a punch and Spellbinders dies to cut different types of circles for the flowers.

Bridal shower invitation

I have been busy, busy, busy lately. I am making preparations for a bridal shower.
The party is going to take place next Sunday the 6th, so I can finally post the pictures of the invitations.
Made with the Sweethearts cartridge and my Cricut.
 The cardstock is from DCWV Mariposa collection.
Simple but effective as I have kept the umbrella cut out to make different items for the shower.

Thank you card

Enjoying my Sunday afternoon at home, recharging the batteries ready for another busy week.
I have made a Magnolia card combined with some Cricut cuts. The colours are very much spring time with light blue and yellow.
I recycled an old Cricut card that I had made when I just received my Cricut. I had used the Storybook cartridge.
A lovely little Tilda holding flowers.
Magnolia Doohickey dies for the branch and flowers, sprayed with Glimmer Mist.
Some Stickles to add sparkle to this pencil coloured image.
The inside of the card is covered with patterned paper from Melody Ross by GCD studios.

Oh Happy Day

A happy weekend to you,
Hope you have time to enjoy the day. It is raining so that is a good excuse to stay indoors and craft. I have another spring theme card to share with you today.
I used another card from the Wild Card cartridge. I used American Crafts Tropical cardstock. The image is from Lili of the Valley, I like the funny bunny on his pogo stick. The flowers are from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge, cut with their shadow image and layered. I used Making Memories brads to affix them to the card.
The paper is from the Lemonade collection by Basic Grey and the stickers too. I used a Martha Stewart border punch to create the scalloped edge.

I have an unusual card to share, that is for myself I mean.
I saw this video from Becca Feeken where she makes these frugal embellishment flowers with buttons. I have tried them before, but never really used them. So I thought it was time to get out my hot glue gun and make a button flower. I used Papertrey buttons that I won a while ago from Andrea.
Simple, but beautiful in its own right with just a stamped sentiment from TCP Studio. All other items are made with Spellbinder dies.
The inside of the card is covered with the same paper from making Memories.

Sweet Easter Greetings


A Blessed Easter to everyone.
I have 2 cards to show you today with images from Lili of the Valley.
I have cut the card basis with the Cricut. Unfortunately my Gypsy died and I had no way to adjust the settings like I normally do. I am very disappointed with the lifespan of the Gypsy. 2 years is all I got out of it and it doesn't look good based on the comments left on the Cricut community. The leaf is from the same cartridge Wild Card.
The inside is also decorated with the same paper from the Lemonade collection by Basic Grey. The white area for writing a sentiment is made using a Spellbinders die.
The flower is made with circle dies from Spellbinders and some cotton fabric assembled with a Doodlebug brad. I love these brads, they are so soft. the sentiment stickers are also from Basic Grey.
All the images were coloured with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. I just love them, they are so nice to work with, very easy to blend.
