Hi everyone I have been so busy with work, here is a little card I made with a card kit left over from a class. With a piece of very vanilla , blush blossom and close to cocoa cardstock and the 'vintage vogue' set with kraft ribbon and the eyelet border and oval punch. I also used an old hostess set for the sentiment, I have pulled out some more old kits and will be reusing them to make fresh cards that I will share over the weekend.
Hopefully the sun will say and play too
Have a fab weekend and happy crafting!!!

As soon as I saw the Bella Blue dsp I knew I wanted to make my home mini album with it and I did, Here is the finished project. I also tried a ribbon flower and it came out ok I think I need more practice to get it a bit tighter but I was surprised at how quickly I did this 2 1/2 hours and I painted the whole album first to i am really pleased with it hope you like it happy crafting and I will be back with more cards very soon thanks for stopping by!!!

sweet pea again!!!!

I was looking at my topnote box and thought what about a scallop square one then I thought a bag I have to do a bag and here's what I got at the end of a very late night. I just kept the scallop squares going i used the sizzix square die with kraft card stock and then punched 4 scallop square punches from blush blossom, I used all 4 stamps in the sweet pea set for each square and used a stitched felt circle for the centre of the flower! I attached white satin ribbon for the handle.Thanks for stopping by hopefully some sunny weather will arrive soon so I can take photos of all my other projects I want to share so if you see the sun send him my way thanks, happy crafting!!!
