Happy Birthday Card

Hello again!
I really struggle with the manly man things.  My work is all so girly and pretty, so today I have tried to push myself to make a man card with the gorgeous Timeless die.
Here is the result.

Very plain but I think enough for a man card.
So all I have done is embossed a piece of cardstock with the Typography embossing folder.
I then cut a piece of paper from the 6 x 6 pad to co-ordinate with the type on font on the embossed piece of card.
Using the Timeless die I cut it out three times with cereal boxes and then layered them up for extra strength.
Using some embossing powder I embossed my die cut piece.  I then decided to give it a little more depth using some gold embossing powder, so I just embossed in a few places.  Just a bit hit and miss.
Here is a closer look at the embossing on the Timeless die.
To finish my card off I added a couple of the resin corners to my card.  To make the pop just a little more I coloured them with some Rub n Buff.
Super simple, super quick and maximum impact!

Mini Flip Album

Hello and thanks for stopping by.
Today I have another small mini flip album to share using the Magnolia Lane paper line and some of the co-ordinating dies.
This album I have kept very simple on the inside as I really wanted those beautiful papers to be the focus.
On the outside of my cover I have used that gorgeous leaf from the Rose Cutting die and teamed it up with the paper magnolia.  The doily is the Magnolia doily and some of the bling flourishes just to finish it off.  I have used one of the quotes from the 6 x 6 paper pads and also added that pretty little butterfly cabochon.
Here is a closer look at the inside of my album
On the left hand side I have created a waterfall.  The middle of the album has a top loading pocket and also opens up which you will see in the next photo.

This middle part opens up to show two small pockets which houses a couple of tags.  The small 6 x 6 paper pad was perfect as it had the small images in. Just perfect to make tags.

The whole middle part also lifts up to show another pocket on the bottom with two photo mats.  The top page has a belly band to hold a little flip out photo mat too.

On opening the right hand side, there is another flip page for more photo space.

I did add the tassels die to embellish this small side the album as it was a little small for a photo but still had room for a bit of journaling.
Thanks so much stopping by
Until next time
Happy crafting

Shabby Chic Cards with Blue Fern

I'm back again today to share with you some cards.
So with Mother's Day fast approaching I thought I would treat my beautiful mum to a special card.
While at my local scrapping store I picked up the gorgeous new Blue Fern papers and pulled out some chipboard and some pretty flowers and this is what I came up with.
I had a play also with some of the new Blue Fern embossing powders.  That leaf is actually an embossing powder with glitter in it.  Soooo pretty.
These papers are so pretty so I couldn't stop at one card.  Here are the rest I created
How pretty is that violin?  Love it!

This image was perfect as a focal point on my card
I had such fun creating these cards!  This is what I really love to do.  Lots of pretty flowers and papers!  It really doesn't get much better than that!
Until next time
