Patterned Paper Cards


During my May classes we had lots of fun mixing and matching our beautiful retiring patterned papers to make a batch of cards.  Here's a few of the designs.

First up we did a 3 panel card.  I cut the pieces 1 1/4 inches in width and 14.5 cm in length.  ('Scuse the mixed measurements there - I zip between inches and cm in my cardmaking - depending on what works best.) 

Here are a few examples.



We also did some cards with a white cardstock top layer with a window cut from it so the pattern shows through.


Love this retiring candle border punch - on sale for $25.90 before it disappears end of May.



I used the leftovers from this one to make this .....


And lucky last - a really simple one with just a handful of supplies.  The gorgeous Serene Scenery DSP plus a greeting cut with the Stitched Shape Framelits - voila.



Last chance to pick up some of our retiring patterned papers before they disappear from our range to make way for some new designs in the new catalogue.

Bargain Hunting?

Just a heads up that there's been some new additions to the clearance rack if you're keen to find some bargains.

Here's a screen grab of just a few of the items. 



I hope all the mums and other special women out there had a happy Mothers' Day yesterday.   My two gave me cards, gifts and breakfast in bed.  (Then proceeded to spend half the day arguing with each other just in case I'm painting an unrealistic picture of perfection!)  We all loved a quick drive up the freeway to have lunch with my mum.  Dad made yummy scones for dessert.

Sending a hug to anyone missing their mum over the weekend.  x

Happy stamping everyone - I'm off to chop up that patterned paper ready for Wednesday's class.
