Hello Everyone!!!

 

Here we are for you with a couple of cards for you to have a look at and hopefully get some inspiration from.

So here they are:

The first is my usual shabby type card with a Paris theme, now who would not like to see Paris at some stage?

Viva modelling crème over Memory Box Stencil – Texture Splatter Spray, border and doily are Kaisercraft Dies – Lacy Border and Lacy Doily.  Butterfly is Memory Box Isabella Butterfly and Memory Box Pipi Butterfly.  Pearls are Kaisercraft Pearls.
Love, love in Paris, yes well this love is from A2Z Scraplets  Brush Words and has been decorated with black Tombow Pen and Glossy Accents

 

Love charms and decorated charms, I cannot take the credit for this one, it comes from Tracy at My2Angels.
The next card is a bit Clean and Simple for me, such a stretch not to cover up that white space.
These gorgeous Butterflies from Z2Z Scraplets  are called Maisie Butterflies Set of 3  and they are just gorgeous and so perfect for this card!!!  Stamp from Kaszazz.  The Butterflies have been done with Stampendous Embosssing Powder Shabby Blue (I love these shabby colours), which gives a thick melt with a hint of blue on white with gold speckles.  The edges have been touched with Viva Inka Gold in Aquamarine.
A close look at the finish on these butterflies.
Hope you like these, go on, do some creating now, and don’t forget about the A2Z Challenge this month, and we are also having an Easter Weekend Challenge with loads of challenges and fun and games 🙂 Something for everyone including the kidlets!!  Check it out https://www.facebook.com/events/1663115533951222/
See you next time xxxx

Hello Everybody, I did forget to blog this for you.  It is my very first DT post for A2Z Scraplets (the best chipboard downunder).

Hi, Lauren here with my first share for you.   Hope you are keeping warm on the eastern half of Australia with the temperatures taking a dip again after that fantastic snow in Tasmania.

So I have made you a couple of cards.
Love this style of card, with loads of texture in a 5″x 5″ card, not too big, but loads of room to add all the lovely details and elements.  I have used two chippies from the wonderful range of A2Z Scraplets, the one at the top would be my all time favourite (but they all get a chance to be my favourite) Swirly Corners Medium and comes in a set of two.  The wonderful Congratulations at the bottom is just that, a script word for cards and layouts.
My background is texture paste on Memory Box Texture Honey Comb designer Stencil (88521), and when dry the background was sprayed with Ranger Pearl Mist Cappucino.  I have coated the chippie with Gesso and then painted with Ranger Distress Paint Victorian Velvet.  Embossed parts with  Stampendous Aged Bronze, then sprayed over with the Cappucino and re-heated as I love how the painted areas bubble and fizz just like the aged embossing powder does.
Yes I love to make flowers and the two larger ones on this card are made with Memory Box Fabulous Phlox (98511)
I love the richness of many textures and layering.  The butterfly is Memory Box Isabella and Pippi dies, such a lovely small butterfly.
Another full picture of the card to show the almost dandelion look of the Memory Box Chandra Stem (99090) to which I have added different size pearls.
A close up of the Chipboard Swirl and the richness of the Stampendous Aged Embossing Powders.
So I made another card to share with you, not as much work involed in this one, but still very pretty (yes I have to admit I love pretty).
A Wedding Shower card, with lacy borders, pearls, ruffled ribbon (tutorial at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wocnUTILmk and a lovely bow, all in tones of cream, gold and a touch of pink.
I have used a medium out of Umbrellas Set of 5 shapes (found at this link http://www.a2zscraplets.com.au/umbrellas_set_of_5_shapes.html  Started with Gesso, then embossed with Stampendous Shabby Rose Embossing Powder fairly thickly and while molten I have stamped a script stamp into it with StazOn ink and then reheated to get a marble effect.
Butterfly is Memory Box Isabella and Pippi
Thanks for stopping by and reading. I hope you are staying warm and getting lots of papercrafting done.

Hello Everybody,

It is Teddy (if you don’t know Teddy, he is sidekick,  creative advisor and world renowned character, ask if you need more info on him) and Lauren here on the blog today for the A2Z Scraplet DT, how good is that? And you ask what has she got for us today?  Well a real treat I am hoping!!

So I made a card with some dies!!

Today it is a 5″x5″ square card with a front panel embossed with a Sizzix Embossing Folder in a beautiful Paris theme.  The usual ribbon treatment and bow, (my trademark I am told).  I also cut a border and doily from Kaiser Dies, Lacey Border and the matching doily.  When I cut detail dies I use baking paper to make them easy to get the die cut out of the die.  I keep the die cut baking paper for other uses.  I have also used Memory Box Isabella Butterfly and Pippi Butterfly for the cute little butterfly at the top right of the cars.  Also  Memory Box Sketchy Rings and Memory Box Petal Party to make three of the flowers.  All pieces are lightly edged with ink before assembly for definition and depth.

Just a close up of the inking on the embossing and all pieces, the flowers and edges of the card itself.  To finish off all flowers have been touched with Ranger Ice Stickles Chrystal Ice, because I can and I like it.

A close up to show the layering effect of the pieces used on the card.  Also the textures given by layers, embossing and inking.

So after that, I made you another card, this one with a chippie piece on it.  Love chippies

Oh I love getting some Christmas Cards made early and the little trees from A2Z Scraplets are just perfect for quick card making.  Oh remember I told you that I keep the baking paper from the die cutting?  Well I have used that on here as a stencil, see it there on the middle to left of the card, where I have lightly inked??? How clever is that??  Makes it look like I have a doily right there on the card.

Now to how I have coloured the chippie tree.  It is such a pretty shape this one, I love it.  Christmas Tree 4  So easy to decorate too.  I have used Stampendous Embossing Powder Shabby Green.  This is brilliant embossing powder (EP), but you need to throw out the window some of the things you usually do with EP…. this stuff is filled with different sized textured bits, from embossing powder to glitter and you need to heat from UNDER the item, because otherwise you lose half the goodies.  I am still learning and making mistakes doing it, but it can be done.  I kept losing the green bits in it, so I topped up with Ranger Distress EP in Peeled Paint to get the rich green on the tree.

There it is in close up, that lovely doily image from the baking paper.  Oh and the pretty tree too of course.  Now don’t forget that if I use something that I name that is not in the shop, then you can contact us to get it for you and I am sure our great leader will do the very best possible to do it for you!!

Well I have had great fun here today, thanks for having a look, hope you like what I have on offer today.

Hugs

Lauren

Hello Everybody,

 

Well Teddy and I have had a little trip to the Gold Coast to attend the My2Angels Scrapbooking Retreat and we must say it was a serious hit with us, well run, learnt heaps and met the loveliest people you would ever want to meet.  We must save our little coins so we can go again next year 🙂

 

Teddy at Retreat sitting in place

 

There he is sitting on his special chair in his place on my table, he is supervising and being cheeky as he does so well.

 

So I made a card for you.

Oh oh oh, just a 5″x5″ card decorated with die cuts and a little stamp for happy birthday and the lovely seagulls.  I love this bare tree, it would be one of my favourite dies and the piggies are beautiful running through the long grass.  Such a simple, cute card.

 

Hope you like it 🙂

 

Hugs

Merry Christmas

Hello Everybody,

 

You know I get so much enjoyment from watching my two kitty cats, they are so funny, with their own distinct personalities.  Tessa is the quietest and does not much like company at all except for Keith or myself, she just goes to bed, sleeps a lot, eats, she eats a lot and at night she plays like she was a kitten, she plays a lot.  During dinner time, she will come and give us her company and roll around the floor, playing with the little glitter pom poms she loves so much, she loves red and she has started liking toys that make a noise too.  This has taken a while, she is now 14 years old.  Such a baby of a cat, playing and being spoilt by me of course 🙂  Love her to bits.

 

So I made a card just for you!!

 

SANY3828

 

This one was inspired by Pinterest, just a standard A6 card with a panel of blue and then white embossed with dots, to give a little bit of a border and texture.  The Snowflakes are from Joy Dies, the Baubles from Memory Box, and the foliage at the top is Martha Stewart Branch Punch.

 

Teddy has been practising and is getting good at tiny baby bows, so we put 3 of them on this card, and finished with a lovely Christmas sentiment and loads of bling.

 

Hope you like it.

 

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone,

 

Oh WOW the year is getting away from me, mid July already and I have not even thought about Christmas yet, but then again, I have five months to think about that.

 

So with this in mind, I made a card.

 

SANY3785

 

This is so cute and such a minimalist card for me.  A6 card with a portrait oriention and a vertical opening, I have made the blue panel in textured cardstock, a Memory Box die (so lovely) in black placed directly on the panel, a sentiment  stamped from my new set from Wild Rose Studio (Everyday Sentiments)  and loads of bling, how simple is that?

 

Hope you like it.

 

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone,

Only a couple of weeks and I head off to the Gold Coast for the Scrapbooking Retreat hosted by My2Angels, the best little scrapbook store on the Coast.  Can’t wait, almost ready to go 🙂

So I made a card 🙂

SANY3821

Now this is a Christmas card in non traditional colours, but maybe I need to put DEC on there, as most people are thinking this is a 25th Anniversary card.

You know I cased this card from my friend Lisa at Crafting Cottage, she is so talented and creative, I sometimes think I should just case her work and save my brain the strain of thinking.

She taught me the benefits of sponging over white embossed stamps, and she taught me so many things to do with doily stamps.  Maybe I could be a little more creative when I case her work, or copy it exactly then everyone would know what the card is 🙂

Hope you like my take.

Hugs 🙂

Lauren
