Stampin' Up! Designer Paper Laser Cut for Absolute Beauty.


This card was made especially for a Wedding I have used a lot of our retired punch sets and dies to get the shape of the flowers that I wanted to use.  The beautiful Lattice Background is our beautiful Romantic Laser Cut Papers that is in our Annual Catalogue.  I think it really makes the card look stunning.  The flowers have been made with our Whisper White Ordinary weight card stock Paper with our beautiful little coloured Pearls that are in the Annual Catalogue also.  The stamp set is 'Falling for You'  it is retired but I really liked the greeting.


A close up of my Roses, I have used Cake Decorating stamen in the centre, and our beautiful Net Hail Spot Ribbon.  The rings I  have made with two circle dies taped together on our Gold  Foil  Card Stock.  I cut two out and placed them over each other to give the joined effect.


All boxed up and ready to go.
Happy Crafting.

Oh Christmas Tree!


These Cute little Christmas Trees can either be used as a name Card for your placement at the festive table or as a cute little Christmas Card.
If using as a Christmas Card you place a row of double sided tape on the back to be put together when received.  They are very cute for display  and so simple to make.


Two different styles I have made here.


As you see above the Merry Christmas Greeting can be used to pop the name on your card of were your guest is to be seated.

If anyone would like the direction for this card I will write them out and pop them up on this Blog in a few days.
Happy Crafting,
Carolyn

Stampin' Up's! Santa's Workshop.

Santa's Workshop Suite has surely thrilled me.  I have spent the last 8 weeks making this Memory Album for Christmas Photo's and Memories.




The Designer Series Paper, Stamp Set and Dies have made this so easy to do and enjoy.  The very last part of my book was to design the Floral Arrangement on the spine of the cover which was so exciting to do.


As you know I love my flowers.  I have attached some little silver and red bells, net ribbon and fir branches, mistletoe even a little branch of berries.


There are pockets, flap and pages and hours more I could have put into it but if I do it will be later.
Enjoy having a peek at my little workshop.
Happy Crafting.

VW Fun

It was my husbands Birthday last week and he loves his VolksWagen Cars.  He has been a V.W. connoisseur' for many years now. 
I can even remember back in 1971 when we went off on our Honeymoon to Queensland in our little V.W. Sedan.  These days we still drive a little white bug.



So I had to make him this Card for his birthday.  Must say he loved it and thought I had bought the badge to put on the card.  He really knows I would not do that.  All my old retired bits and pieces came in so handy for this card.  From old Alphabet dies to the stamps a 'Beautiful Ride'.  Think it is just as well I am a hoarder.


Have a wonderful week crafting.
love Carolyn.

Something quick and cute for Halloween.  Most the images are die cut out the Designer Series Paper.  The witch is on a slider tab, waiting to be pulled along on her Broom stick. Enjoying the ride on Halloween.

Happy Trick and Treating.

Baby Boy Joy!


A little Memory Album which has been created for baby's first month or week.  Inside this Album are spots for Journelling and photos of baby's early days.   This little Album can be used for a coffee table or to add to a Memory Album.


Inside the folder these little pages fold into one another just like a book. Turned over there are more pages for you to decorate with photo's and add sayings and more stories about photo's etc.


Back section of the little Album I place a Label for you to write who the gift is from and who it is going too.  There are interactive pieces that you can take out of the album and change around for little ones to react with.

Hope you enjoy this little look at my newest project finished.

Happy Crafting,

Carolyn

Stampin' Up! Santa's Workshop



This absolutely Beautiful Suite Santa's Workshop is just a delight to work with.
The stamp set is just so cute and Dies well you really need these to make life easier.  Also there is Santa's Workshop Memories & More Card Pack.  Which I am using to make a Christmas Memory Album using also SDSP (which is below).  When I have finished this challenge I will up load it for you to see.
The Greeting came from the Christmas Timeless Tidings Stamp Set.
The beauty of this Santa's Workshop is there are so many parts to the set which can make your cards quick and easy.
Although I love the therapy of colouring my images and choosing which colours I can enhance them with.
I did find the sequins can become a little static so make sure you desensitize your enclosure with your special 'Embossing Buddy'.

Santa's Workshop 12 x 12 (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Specialty Designer Series Paper

The Beautiful Specialty Designer Series Paper you are able to use your Dies to cut some of these images out as well. Most of the other images are quiet simple to fussy cut. Which makes a project or card making venture quick and easy.

Have a wonderful day crafting.
Carolyn.
