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,


Just a quick post tonight with a little comparison for super sticky double sided adhesive tapes.  You all know that I love to ruffle my ribbon and to do this the tape really needs to grab hold of the ribbon and not let go.  Or else we end up with loose ribbon everywhere.


So I always have used Ranger Wonder Tape, which is fantastic for this, it lasts forever (well I have had cards on my inspiration wall for over 3 years and the tape is still grabbing that ribbon).


Well I came across some High Tack  Xpress-It double sided adhesive tape and was told it was great for ribbon and metal embellishments.  So I bought some, it is around 1/4 the price of the Ranger per metre,  and as it is only a little more expensive than the everyday tape, I thought I would have nothing to lose, so I got some




So here are the contestants ready to go, I have put the tape tapes onto the pieces of paper ready.




Oh Oh Oh they look so pretty, this is just completed and I have set them aside to see what happens.  If this works I have 2 bases ready for quick cardmaking!!!



UH-OH the Express-It is starting to let go in only a bit over an hour, Teddy has had a fall, he is so disappointed!!




Next morning the Express-It has almost completely come off.  😦   Oh well Teddy has fainted dead away.


But you know, it doesn’t matter to me, I will stick with my Ranger Wonder Tape because it really is wonderful.


The Express-It can be used for boxes and general use, no loss there and now I know and I will not have to think about this again.  🙂


Hope this helps you in choosing your tape to ruffle your ribbon with!!


Hugs 🙂
