FTL #87 Case

FTL 87 has this simple layout this week. I just loved their example which can be seen here. I just had to make one too. I have not added my card to the challenge, this is purely a cased card.

Urban Garden Easel Card

These Easel Cards would have to be one of the easiest cards you could ever make. They fold down flat to be able to post and put in an envelope but once opened up you can display them for all to see. Here are the instructions on how to make your own easel card.

Missing in Action

Just a quick post with a card I found while cleaning up my craft cupboard yesterday. I made this card for a friends birthday about 6 months ago, but ended up making her a different one and never got around to posting it on my blog. It is a recessed window card and instructions on how to make one can be found here.

Aren't I A Lucky Girl

Well, one of besties Mel has been up to her creative best again. Don't you just adore this present I received for my birthday yesterday? It's a box with 4 milk cartons, full of goodies such as chocolates, biscuits, tea and beauty products. The little cupcake on the front is just adorable with real like icing on top, so clever. Mel also made some matching cupcakes to go with it which were too cute to eat. They were yummy.....

For The Love Of DSP

Hi Everyone. I'm finally getting the chance to upload some pics of some cards I have made recently. I wanted to make a few Mother's Day cards and cards suitable for birthdays or just when you need a card for someone special. So here are 8 cards I've made. They have all been very simple and I've made them while watching the footy on a Friday night so minimal concentration required, lol. All the cards are decorated on the inside as well (except the pocket cards at the end which don't have a traditional middle) I love using DSP.....

Well that's it for now. I hope you like them.

Mother's Day Class

On Wednesday 28th of April, my very dear buddy Mel (Little Bits of Mel) and I are holding our first craft class. For the night we will be making a card and gift for Mother's Day. We will have all of the cutting preparations done in advance for you so all you need to do is have fun stamping and assembling your card and gift. The beauty of this is you can customise it yourself so if you'd prefer to make this a Birthday rather than Mother's Day card and gift you can do so.

The link above to Mel's blog holds all the important info which I will copy and paste on this post and some more photos of the project we'll be making on the night. There will also be a lucky door prize and tea and coffee to wash down the best cupcakes on the planet made by Mel. If I was you, I'd be coming just for the cupcakes, the craft is just a bonus.

WHEN: 28th April (7.00 - 9.00pm)
WHERE: Mel's Place (Details to be given when booking)
COST: $10
WHAT TO BRING: Scissors and Double-Sided Tape.
TO BOOK: or (or if you are a facebook friend, simply send a reply to this event once I send you your invite). Please book by 26th April, so we can prepare your kit. Hope to see you there!!! All welcome!!

FTL Challenge 84

I had a chance last night to make a card for a little girl who's birthday is coming up. Since I hadn't played along this week as of yet with the latest FTL Challenge, I thought I would use their sketch to help me out. My card isn't quite to the layout but it's similar.
