Best Birthday Ever

The latest edition of Simply Cards & Papercraft is in the shops today so I can share one of the cards that I created for this edition - this is one of three of my projects that made the front cover!


I was commissioned to create five masculine projects using the sunburst technique.


I used papers from the Dovecraft Back to Basics Blue Skies Collection and a DigiStamp Boutique Sentiment.  The buttons and twine are from my stash.

Enjoy the Spring

It's time for a new challenge at The Paper Shelter and the theme for the next week is Birthday Girl.  I have used this beautiful image called Enjoy the Spring , she is also available as part of The Spring Collection - 6 products for the price of 4.


I used the coloured image and cut her out with a Spellbinders Circle die, I then fussy cut her several times so that I could add some decoupage layers.


I teamed her up with some papers from NitWit Collections and added a Personal Impressions sentiment cut out with my Die-namics Fishtail Flags die.  I cropped the flowers from her hat and enlarged them in Word before printing them six times and fussy cutting them to embelish my card.


Make sure you pop over to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and check out the DT inspiration, we would love for you to join us for our Birthday Girl Challenge. If you use a Paper Shelter image you could win a $30 Gift Certificate, if you use another image you can win 3 Digis of your choice.

Just a little note

This is my card for this weeks Less is More Challenge, it's Theme week and the theme is Washi Tape.  All I can say is thank goodness for Amazon Prime as I didn't have any decent Washi Tape, I ordered some yesterday and it was delivered this morning - amazing service.


I created a very simple black and white card using my newly acquired Washi Tape.


The sentiment is from The Lovely Studio.


I would like to enter this card into the Less is More Challenge 320 - Washi Tape.

CAS Sakura Flower

This is the final project that I created for Die-cutting Essentials Magazine, I was sent a selection of Cheery Lynn Designs Dies and asked to create six projects.

I really enjoyed playing with these Cheery Lynn Designs Dies, they are really pretty and cut like a dream.

Mother's Day Vase

This is a Mother's Day card that I have made using a beautiful decoupage image from Craft Creations.


It is quite a large image and there are lots of decoupage layers so I kept my design simple to make it centre stage.


I have just added a LOTV sentiment cut out with a Spellbinders Banner die along with some card candi that I made myself.  I also decorated the inside using the same papers and a sentiment from The Lovely Studio.


Thank you for calling today, your company is much appreciated.
