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!!


This card is made with the Kraft Plus Challenge in mind.  Yes a Kraft base, a recycled Kraft base that I saved from packaging and have been itching to use it.!!

I have spritzed the base with Dylusions Ink Spray in white.  Added some Grossgrain polkadot ribbon in four strips and a ruffled piece up the middle for something different and in keeping with the colour scheme.  Kaisercraft Die – Lacey Doily and Memory Box Die – MB Botanical Stem.  The A2Z Scraplets Birthday Set 1 Ebony and the Kylie’s Triangle Texture Ebony Shape have been left as they come in that beautiful black.  Decorated with Sugar Beads and a flower arrangement.

Thanks for calling by to have a look, this card is entered into the Kraft Plus Challenge for April!!
Waving madly at you all, Lauren and Teddy

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!!!!

Hello Everybody,

Yes, yes, yes, Lauren and Teddy on the A2Z Scraplets blog today to bring you our latest creations for your viewing pleasure!!!

So we have three cards today for you, all with A2Z Scraplets on them and other pretty things too.  We do love pretty.

This would be our favourite, it is so pretty, using paper from Kaisercraft small pad and covered with mesh ribbon, we used a painted brickwork chippie from A2Z Scraplets across the middle of the card for wonderful dimension, added lace and some bobble trimming.  Then used a Memory Box Grand Heart and La Rue Heart (double layered and embossed with Stampendous Shabby White Embossing Powder).

Some foliage with Memory Box Pine Sprigs cut from a coordinating paper and Memory Box Fabulous Phlox for the flowers.

An angled view gives you an idea of the various textures and the great dimension achieved using the A2Z Scraplets under the heart.  Loads of texture with the chipboard, various fibres and trimmings and of course the Stampendous embossing powder.

So here is another one, in blue with so many stars to match the A2Z Scraplets star flourish.

This card looks so much better in real life, so sparkly and pretty with all the added glitter and stars.  Again a Kaisercraft paper for the background, embossed with a Sizzix Embossing folder and with added texture paste using Memory Box Stencil Stars Starry Night with glitter sprinkled over while wet.  Ribbon, bow and stars added to this.

The A2Z Scraplets Chipboard Star Set of 2 Flourish is embossed with Stampendous Embossing Powder Shabby Blue with two layers of powder (one melted and then more embossing fluid added and more powder added and melted.

And I have saved a good one to last, so pretty in purple with silver and glitter galore!!

Oh yes more pretty paper from Kaisercraft, embossed with the stars and swirls embossing folder from Sizzix and added texture paste using Memory Box Stencil Stars Starry Night with glitter sprinkled over while wet.  Lace and ribbon added and those beautiful stars cut from glitter paper.

This time I have made my own mix of embossing powder for the A2Z Chipboard Star Set of 2 Flourish using Adirondak Eggplant and Wild Plum with silver glitter and some silver and white embossing powders added.  All these powders were just regular size EP and I did not mix them very well, so the finished product has a variant in colour finish.

Hope you like what we have for you today, see you soon!!!

OH Woo Hoo, we are here at last, late, but still on the day.  Teddy has been so busy with Melbourne Cup Sweeps and having fun that of course he left it to the last minute to post.  Silly boy makes me shake my head, but keeps me amused.

Well we have been playing with chipboard from the lovely A2Z Scraplets and it is just wonderful to be able to make a feature for a card with only a little work.  Chippie is fabulous and we think the best designs are from A2Z Scraplets.

So we made you a card of course.

How cute is this, a Christmas Card by us with non-traditional colours.  Back to sewing on our paper, we do love that and die cut from Kaiser Doily, the pretty Christmas Trees and the A2Z Scraplets chippie of the tree, gorgeous.

The Chipboard tree is decorated in  Stampendous Shabby white embossing powder then decorated with sequin stars.

The base papers are from Kaisercraft A Touch of Gold.

So then Teddy made you another card, just for your viewing pleasure today.

So pretty in pink of course in our own style.  Two papers from an old Kaiser 6 1/2 inch pad, the edges distressed and then the lovely pink and silver ribbon and bow.  Some swirly Bling  and lovely flowers that have been inked and then glittered.

The Chipboard again from A2Z Scraplets is covered in Silver Embossing Powder. So quick, so easy and stunning.

Hope you like them 🙂

Hugs 🙂

Lauren and Teddy 🙂 xx

Hello Everybody,

Lauren and Teddy up on the A2Z Scraplets blog today and we are going to show you a couple of cards with mobs of flowers and are made especially for special occasions.

So these are the cards that I made just for you to get some inspiration from.  I hope you like them.

Ohhhhh…… This one is Teddy’s favourite, a Cascading Z Fold Card we think, with a die cut lace border at the top (cut with Kaiser Lacey Borders) and all panels covered with patterned paper and some doilies.  The flat flowers, the tags and the sentiment come from packs of Kaiser Collectables, such fast embellishing with no effort.
I have added 3D roses and cherry blossoms (because I love them so much) and ribbon right across the bottom of the card.  All finished with flat back pearls and Ranger Ice Stickles.
Love the tags (dressed up with flowers and ribbons) and the sentiment piece from the Kaiser Collectables.  So easy, so quick.  No mess from stamping if you are not so confident too.
Oh and the second card is one I have been dreaming of for a long time and Deb created the Chipboard Sentiment for me, love it.
I have used a 5″x5″ card base and cut a piece of Kaiser Paper Pad cut to size and torn top and bottom, then stitched around including tears.  This is then attached to the card and the tears are rolled open.  I have done a few stencil leaves over the base.  The three chipboard pieces, the Two Becomes One and the Vine Flourish (cut in half for the two corners) have been embossed with Stampendous Shabby White (love that stuff, so pretty), and then glued to the card.  You can also get Stampendous Embossing Powders from My2Angels Shop on the Gold Coast and internet
Then I have rolled the tears more and filled the space with pearl beads of different sizes.  Added 3D roses and cherry blossoms to the chipboard swirl on the two corners.  The flowers are all touched with Ranger Ice Stickles.
This last photo gives a closer photo of the embossed flourish and the pearls in the paper tear as well as the Ice Stickles on the flowers.
Oh yes I love pretty, oh so pretty.
Hope you like today’s effort and get some ideas from them.
Thanks Lauren
