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 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!!

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,

 

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

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

Well Hello Everybody!!!

 

Teddy and I played in the A2Z Easter Challenges on the weekend and it was fantastic, we crafted up a storm and made 9 cards, yes that’s right 9 cards, more than we have made in the last 3 months.  We had such an awesome time.

 

So we will show you the first one today:)

This card is 6″x5″ and the panel on the front is misted with a handmade pearl and ink solution. Kaisercraft Lacy Doily is laid on next and a double row of lace with seam binding over the top.  The A2Z Scraplets dressform is embossed with Stampendous Embossing Powder Shabby White for the dress bodice and white EP for the shoulders, the base is painted with Ranger Distress Paint Dusty Concord and the skirt made from lace and seam binding.  Stamp is from My Mind’s Eye set The Sweetest Thing.

 

This card will be entered into the White with One Challenge on the blog White…with 1

 

Teddy and I had such fun making this card, hope you like it 🙂

 

Love

Lauren
