Sun Prints Shoe Box Swap

I am away at the Creativity Now event this weekend. I am spending the weekend at a lovely craft retreat with a wonderful group of ladies. We decided that we were going to do a shoe box swap as we had some time to fill. This is the card that I have designed for my swap

As I won’t be home on Sunday morning, I prerecorded my Facebook live (I’m not sure what to call it – Facebook almost live?) showing how to make my card. Here is the video:

Combining Hues Of happiness with True Beauty

I am happy to be taking part in Kylie’s Monthly International Blog Highlights again.
The theme for this hop is “Thank you”. Many people forget those simple words. I have seen people’s days brightened because someone said a simple thank you to them.
Show your appreciation to people in your lives who have inspired you, helped you or supported you by sending them a thank you card.

I love the background die cut from the Blossoming Happiness dies and it works so well with the flower from True Beauty bundle. Below is the replay of my Facebook live showing how I made this card.

Share It Sunday

Thank you for joining us for our Sunday blog hop (of course in Australia this goes live at 2:00am Monday morning, but it is a great start to the working week when we wake up!) There is no theme for this hop, it is for each of us to choose what project we want to share. This week I have been working on Masculine cards. I found the pelican in the Waves of Inspiration stamp set was the perfect go to.

I used the Bark 3D embossing folder (which has unfortunately sold out in Australia) to create the wavy looking background. I decided to stamp the water for some variation ofr my Facebook live this morning.

If you missed the live you can watch the replay below:

Wildlife Wonder Angled Gate Fold Card

As I promised in my blog post last Thursday, I made the angled gate fold card during my Facebook live on Sunday. If you missed the original post, you can see it here. (The card shown in that post is slightly different to this one).

I had a bit of a drama during the live when i couldn’t find the DSP for my focal point. I have uploaded the replay (with the oopsie in it, so if you don’t want to watch me making a mess, feel free to fast forward that bit!). This is what the card looks like as it is opening:

Pansy Petals Birthday Card

Thank you for joining us for the April Blogging Friends hop. The theme for this hop is “Flowers” The northern hemisphere is moving into warmer weathers and will have flowers in bloom, and in the southern hemisphere we are heading for cooler weather and the flowers on cards that don’t die will be keeping our spirits up.

Pansy Petals is one of the bundles that will be carrying over to the new catalogue, but the DSP will not. One of the fun features of this DSP is that the images on it co-ordinate with the Pansy dies. This is one of the projects that I did for the Bundle Bonus collaboration. If you would like to know more about this, you can find the details here. The card has a surprise inside.

Here is the video that was part of the Bundle Bonus

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope everyone has a fun and creative weekend. Be sure to hop around and see what everyone else has created.

Rainbow Butterflies

Thank you for joining us for another VLOG hop. The theme for this month is “Colours Of The Rainbow” This is open to interpretation, and you may find brightly coloured cards and possibly a rainbow or two along the way. I chose to use butterflies for my rainbow.

The surprise comes inside:

I used the Butterfly Brilliance bundle for the butterflies and the sentiment is from Beauty Of Friendship stamp set. If you want the Butterfly Brilliance bundle, you need to place your order before the end of the month as it won’t have the discounted bundle price in the new catalogue. Keep an eye out – the Bundle Bonus collaboration which will be ready at the end of next week is going to feature Butterfly brilliance.

You will find the link to the next video in the hop in my video description.

Let’s Set Sail Z-Fold

If you couldn’t join me for my Facebook live on Sunday morning, this is the card that you missed. Once again, I couldn’t stay away from the New Horizons DSP. I’ll try use something else this week, but no promises! This is a Z-fold card and it open like this:

Although they aren’t shown together in the catalogue, New Horizons DSP is the perfect background to the Let’s Set Sail stamp set. You will need (want) the coordinating Sailboat Builder punch. Remember if you buy them as a bundle, you save 10%

I used a different sheet of the DSP for the live. Now I can’t decide which colour scheme I prefer!
