Hello Everyone!!

 

We are back with some lovely cards made from Kaisercraft products in a kit from Paper Flourish.  Everything provided except some bling, flowers, foliage and butterflies I added from my stash.  Papers (6 1/2 x 6 1/2 pad), collectables, card and envelopes and bling were all in the kit as well as 6 designs for inspiration.

 

Teddy and I made 10 cards with lots of collectable pieces and we lined the envelopes TA-DAH!!! Still there were lots of collectables, the pearls and some papers left over as well as lots of off cuts that we used to punch out a heap of butterflies and other punchies for the little kids at child care to play with.

 

So let’s have a look at them, shall we??  Teddy is so proud of his work on these.

These were fun to make, taking me out of my comfort zone.  Very different to what I usually do in my not using very much by way of designer paper, Teddy might have to get more of these kits, or even other ones to see how we go with them.

 

Thanks for calling in, hope you like what you see.

 

Love Lauren xx

Hello Everyone!!

 

Has been a busy month in September, went to Retreat on the Gold Coast for Tracy Kielty at My 2 Angels Scrapbooking.  Loved every minute of it.  Then home and a week later the date came up for my Open Heart Surgery to replace my stenosed Aortic Valve.  So scary, so fearful, not of not making it, but of having complications, not so sure I am a fighter any more 🙂

So while Teddy and I were at Retreat we had such fun and made some cards!! Amazing, we crafted with other people and actually got some cards finished.  And we sat at the naughty corner tables with our new best friends.  Check these out from a lovely kit from the lovely Tracy!!

So now it is mid October and my boy is having his birthday today, I am recovering well and Teddy and I are creating in the craft room and we are blogging.  What more could anyone ask for?

 

Hope you like what Teddy did at Retreat, we are a little slow at making things, but we think we make them nicely and they are oh, so pretty 🙂

 

Thanks for calling in

Hello Everybody,
 Yes you have Lauren and Teddy on the blog today and the weather has turned to Winter for our Birthday month (yes you can send pressies to us) 🙂

So here we have a couple of cards for you, very pretty ones with flowers and things on them.

This one has used one of the A2Z Scraplets Umbrellas with Stampendous Embossing Powder, Shabby White then stamped with a script stamp with StazOn Ink and reheated to smudge it a bit.

All the usual embellishments from me, seam binding, lace, flowers and pearls.

The second card is all frills and things as well.

We started with a template and green for the new Leafy Template, then a doily die, the lace and ribbon.

The brickwall is painted with white.  the butterfly swirls is coloured with Tombo Dual Tipped Pens and then coated with Ranger Distress Crackle Paint, Rock Candy.  I love the crackle look.

Flowers were added and some stamen pieces and the word gorgeous was painted black and coated with Glossy Accents.

For those of you who have not met Teddy, here he is scrapbooking with friends 🙂  He is my sidekick and mentor and keeps me crafting on 🙂

Hugs from Teddy and Lauren

Hello Everybody!!

Well here we are, Lauren and Teddy up on the A2Z Scraplets blog today with a card to give you inspiration and ideas!!!   What a fantastic challenge weekend we had over Easter with our lovely Karyn Watton.  Watch out, I am sure there will be more coming along for you all!!

So now to the card, you say! Yes yes here it is 🙂  This card is my DT Inspiration for A2Z Scraplets and is inspired by the Challenge  (stamping and a handmade embellishment) over at Show Us Your Stuff!!

This card has a stamped base (using My Mind’s Eye – The Sweetest Thing stamp set).  Chipboard is
A2Z Scraplets Chicken Wire (I thought it was Hexagons, silly me) painted with Ranger Distress Paint – Victorian Velvet and A2Z Scraplets Doily 2 Small Shape, embossed with
Stampendous Embossing Powder Shabby Pink.  Decorated with lace, ribbon and a handmade flower arrangement (by me) from goodies in my stash.

 

Just a close up of the A2Z Scraplets and my handiwork on that embellishment 🙂
Thanks for dropping by to have a look!!!
Love

Hello Everybody!!

 

Here we are again with another card from the A2Z Easter Weekend Challenges, such great challenges put together by or lovely Karyn Watton.  Challenge 9 was all about using a stencil.

 

A2z challenge 9

Well Teddy and I just love stencils and we have a whole new batch of them from A2Z Scraplets and we have used one here, it is called  Flourish 2  and we used some modelling paste mixed with a mist made from water, ink and some iridescent powder to create a great background relief and then we sprayed the mist over it randomly so we have pale pink background. 🙂  Kaisercraft Lacey Doily, lace and ribbon ruffled with a bow.  (my Tutorials on these can be found on my Youtube Channel).  I have used a portion of the A2Z Scraplets Brick Work Pieces Set of 4 and made a flower arrangement.  The fabulous handmade embellishment and the sprinkling of Sugar Beads are both from My2Angels, they make fantastic embellishments.

 

Thanks for calling by!!!!

 

Love

Lauren

Hello Everybody,

 

What a wonderful Autumn day it is, cool morning, very nice mid 20’s through the day and a slight breeze and a bit of cloud.  Just my type of day.

 

So we have another of the A2Z Scraplets Easter Challenge Weekend cards today

 

SANY4109

 

 

On this card I have used a pretty designer paper and lightly sponged in pink all over and brown as an accent with the new Hexagon Stencil from A2Z Scraplets.  The A2Z Scraplets has been left left as is, the lovely black that it comes.  The gorgeous rickrack and flowers from my stash.

 

Thanks for stopping by.

 

Love

Lauren
