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

Hello Everyone,


Such a cold Winter in Oz this year with snow everywhere, amazing Winter Wonderland, snow men and snow angels everywhere, and so close to home.  Brrrrr.


So I made a card for you.




Such a simple A6 card with lots of inking on all pieces around the edges.  Die cuts for background, flourish and frame for the lovely pic.  Great sentiment on a ribbon cut, fabulous bling and a flower.


So pretty, hope you like it.


Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone!!

Cold winter’s day here, my fingers are still frozen at 1pm, don’t think it will get warmer for me.

so I made a card for you.


Oh this one is a cute one, made for a Challenge on Facebook ACCC, Using a Stencil, I have almost covered the stencil up!!

Yes a 5″ x 5″ card with a designer paper that I have stitched around.  Then I have inked the edges of the card and the paper, and then used an open chicken wire stencil to get hexagonal blobs and spatter on my card with texture paste.  Lace and a thin strip of the patterned paper, a sentiment and a lovely garland of roses and foliage, I have spiralled the wires on the roses to add another texture.

Hope you like it!!

Hugs 🙂
