Cherish Mini Album, Baby


These Baby mini albums are proving very popular, so here is the latest one created, this time for a girl.

I used a variety of papers, and added lots of pockets, tags, and fold out pages. Plenty of space for photos, mementos and other details. An embroidered badge was added to the front cover, and an assortment of die cuts added to the pages. Ribbons, twine, washi tape and rhinestones were added, and glossy accents used to highlight some items. The album is bound with rings.
Where stamps are used, they are from Kaszazz.

Enjoy this little book
until next time

Double Z fold box card


I created this double z fold box card and decided to step it up a bit. I added a couple of bridges in the box section and attached stamped and punched flowers and some die cut leaves and branches, which were attached to plastic strips with glossy accents.

The card is sized to fit in a C6 envelope.
Stampin'up flower shop, petite petals, and papillon potpourrie stamp sets and punches have been used.
There is a panel attached to the centre back fold of the card to add a greeting.

Till next time

Bird Cages...


When going through my stash, I found a collection of Birdcages... die cut and chipboards, that I had previously created and had not yet added to projects.  So following are the cards featuring birdcages...

Featuring butterflies, birds and a dragonfly, these birdcages have been die-cut using a selection of dies... Tim Holtz, Spellbinders etc. I have created the cards using paper/card layers, ribbon and rhinestones or pearls.

See you again soon,

Australia Cards...

Hi there,

Can you get anymore Australian than koalas and kangaroos? My daughter was heading off to Japan, so I created these Australiana cards in case she required any cards for Thank-you and general purpose reasons...

I used neutral colours - greys, browns, black and white.

I am sure her Japanese recipients will have loved them.

From Cairns, Australia,
thanks for visiting,

Panda Cards...


Keeping with the animal theme... my last post was about horses... here are some panda cards I have created using a Panda stamp I recently purchased from a de-stash market (a market where you can purchase craft items people think they will no longer use - a great way to purchase products at a great price!).

I paid $2 for this really cute panda stamp - it was packaged without a brand name, so I am unsure which company manufactured it. I couldn't wait to come home and create some cards.

Have a happy day!

Have a fabulous day!

Diary covers


I had a couple of diaries with plain covers and decided they could do with some dressing up.


For this first one I had this beautiful flamboyant paper which I matted on to blue and then gloss white card. It then only needed embellishing with lots of rhinestones following the design, the year and a punched corner. These, along with the flamingo's beak were coated with glossy accents.


For the second one, I stamped a scene using Stampscapes stamps, coloured it, mounted it on to additional white gloss card, and added the year.

Much brighter.
