Paper tole Christmas Cards

Have I mentioned how much I love Paper Tole? I know it is time consuming and fiddly, but I just love the end results!! These cards have been made with some 3D papers I found on ebay. I took them with me when we went down to Busselton for a three day break in September. It rained the whole time we were there, but we still had fun. I finally put them on cards a few weeks back. The two bottom ones are my favourites, there are another two also that are the opposite (puppy on burgandy/green stripe & bear on green). Again I have used patterened papers from HOTP - which have been hiding in my cupboard for a year (or two!!) The Yellow & Red card also features a greeting from Stampin Up! All Year Cheer.

Baby Announcements!!

Yay!! I can finally share these on my Blog!! as my sister has now received them!! She hasn't had the baby yet, but now has to cross her legs a little longer, apparently Wade (her Partner) was quote "dead impressed with them. So much so, that he was wondering if we could possibly get about 20 or 30 more made." Apparently their circle of family and friends extends a little further than Jenni anticipated!! So here I go again, cutting out 120 ovals, 60 rectangles, colouring 30 giraffes!..........ho hum. But I will get them done coz I love her so much!!!
Materials used for Baby Announcements Stamps - Stamping Up! Bundle of Joy, Canvas, Swell News. Inks - Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery. Cardstock - Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Confetti Cream. Ribbon - Grosgrain Chocolate Chip, Cream. Packaging - Reused Simply Sent Boxes.

Paper Doll Santas!!

WOW I just love my Cricut!! and the Paper Dolls Dress Up Cartridge would have to be one of my favourites at the moment. It is very time consuming to cut out all the bits and then stick them all together but the end results are so cute!!! As it is coming in to Christmas my craft ladies and I decided to give Santa a work out!! These are the cards we came up with. The top three are based on Tracey's design and the others are mine. The background papers are from HOTP Christmas Papers.

Frangipanis and Tiger Lillies

I made these cards a while ago after a visit to a 'not so local' craft store!! (Collins Craft and School Supplies) They had some beautiful cards on display that they had made using these shimmery flower papers. So I bought up what supplies I needed and came home to recreate them. I am really pleased with how they all turned out! The last card "Thanks" also uses my Cuttlebug, Cricut AND the Ribbon Weave Punches that I "Had to Have" last year!! They also use Rubons and various flowers and embellishments from my collection.
