A Productive Day!

Three new cards made this afternoon! Yep three! I sometimes don't even get that many done in a week, let alone a day.

For the first one I've re-visited an old favourite, Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante.

That gorgeous clock is from Scrapmatts.

The next one is a Mother's Day card, using the same Bella Ever After papers as my last post.

Too purty!

And last but not least is a Birthday card using Imaginise.

Gotta love the Bow Easy for making the perfect bow.

Happy papercrafting and I'll be back tomorrow with more and a sneak peek at an up and coming project.

Bella Ever After.

I love the colours in this Bella Ever After range. Pale blue, white, grey and silver. Gorgeous!

The two PP's I have used are "Mad About You" and "Now And Forever". I'm not sure were the sentiment comes from. I've just had it my little notebook forever and thought that the papers and a 30th anniversary were perfect for it.

You can see the sketch for this card here.

Once Upon A Springtime Again!

How gorgeously, whimsical are these Graphic 45 papers? I just love 'em and being a huge fan of fussy cutting they have lots and lots of fiddly, twiddly bits too. I seriously think Graphic 45 are the only paper company whose papers are all suitable for both cards and LO's. 

Anyhoo, have a peek at todays card. 

See those fairies, fussy cut. Those flowers, fussy cut! I find it very therapeutic.

Paper Sundaes have asked for 2 toppings out of these: flowers, lace, distressing and the colour pink. I have used flowers and the colour pink.

And the whole thing.

Happy paper crafting and don't forget to pop over to Unique Cardz Sketches for some sketchy inspiration.

Once Upon A Springtime.

I really, really like this Graphic 45. Once Upon a Springtime collection. I love how they have included a couple of pages of die cuts.

The die cuts make things so much quicker.

See? I whipped this one up in no time and entered it into Paper Sundaes Challenge #55 - Two or more images.

A Man Card And Some News!

Well, which one first? The card or the news? I think I'll show you the card first and save the best, the news, 'til last.

This is more paper from the Graphic 45, A Proper Gentleman Collection.

Have you noticed that I've been making my cards in a 6" x 6" size now? I stuck with the 6" x 4" for so long because envelopes were easy to find. Now that I've worked with 6" x 6" I've found it's a much easier size to work with. Especially as the graphics on most papers work better with this size and I can use larger embellishments too. I've also found an eBay seller that sells the right size square envelopes and another one that sells the right size cello bags. 
So 6" x 6" it is!

Now for my news! 


I've been asked to teach, yes teach, card making classes!!!!!!! Apart from working in a scrapbook store, this is my DREAM! Though I have to admit I have no idea what to do, I've never been to a class myself, so not sure how to go about it. But, hey, live and learn!

My first class is March 9 at 
22 Rowood Place
Prospect NSW

Bookings can be made by phoning the store on 9688 3319.

Here's a little teaser of what I'll be using for the first class.
