Another Papertrey Decoupage Card!

I made this card for my Sister-In-Law for her birthday for next month!
She is a dog lover and had a dog which looks like the white dog.

I have been working on some layouts this week,so I will be uploading them from tomorrow! I think I might be getting my scrapbooking mojo back, at long last!

Have a great evening!

Two cards today!

I have been busy and so I have two cards for you today!

The first card is a photo card and this was made for a college at work when she was off sick.
The second card is a decoupage happy birthday card.

I might not have a lot to show you over the next couple of weeks what with the school holidays!

But I have been working on some scrapbook layouts over the last couple of days so I will share them soon.

Have a great evening!

Happy Easter!

Hope everyone is having a lovely day and not eating too much chocolate!
We woke up to snow this morning but it did not last long, all gone by 10.30am.
Poor old Jake, he missed the snow again!

Anyway, today's card is decoupage from Papertrey. I really love this design as we like to go caravaning, so I might keep this card and give it to Kevin for our anniversary. I have just left enough room for a greeting!

Have a great day!

Bath Time!

For today's cards I have used a decoupage & background sheets from Papertrey. I really enjoy using these sheets as they are easy to cut out.
I have just added some Prima flowers, zooms, ribbon and glitter glue to the bubbles!

I have not added any greetings at this time, I will wait until I use the cards.
Have a great day!

First Canvas!

Today I thought I would show you something different. For sometime I have been wanting to have ago at scrapbooking on a canvas, so I took the plunge Friday and managed to get it finished yesterday. I had great fun painting with the acrylic paints and it took a while to get the background just right to go with my photos.

So what do you think of it? Have you ever scrapbooked a canvas? Please let me know.

Have a great day!

Hana Card

For today's card I have used my Hana set which I love! I have kept to a black & white theme with a small bit of silver thrown in. I also used my Cuttle bug embossing die, black organza ribbon, large white brad, rub ons, glitter peel off dots and some lovely backing paper!

Happy crafting.

My First Magnolia and Flower Soft Card

For today's card I have used the flower soft window, flower soft in green, lilac and lavender. This is the first time I have used flower soft and I was not sure if I liked it to start with but I think the card has turned out ok. My Magnolia girl was coloured using my copic sketch markers and I applied diamond glaze to her wellies, glitter glue to her wings. The organza ribbon has different shades of lilac to purple and is really lovely. Pity I can't remember where it came from.

Hope the weather is not too bad where you are!

Happy crafting
