Spring Bringer


Today's card is another one that I made some time ago now and never got round to showing...

The image is Wee Stamps 'Spring Bringer' by Whimsy Stamps and the Step Card Cutting die set is by Crafts Too.

I decided to go with a simple layout for this card and kept it uncluttered. It felt quite strange not adding lots of embellishments but the recipient appreciated its simplicity, which was all important!

Love is...

Hello! I'm back again with my first card in ages. Loved making this one! The colours in these Maja papers are gorgeous...and although the Penny Black 'Love' die is really part of a Christmas die set, it can be used at any time of the year!

The bow has been cut with a Sue Wilson die.
The flowers have been cut with Memory Box Fabulous Phlox and Fancy Blossoms dies.
The leaves have been cut with a Magnolia die and Martha Stewart punch.
The large butterflies have been cut with the Memory Box Pippi Butterfly die and the small butterflies are from the Memory Box Dancing Butterflies die.

Hope you have a super week!

Tag Album

I made this tag album quite a while ago and hadn’t attempted anything like it before, but I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed designing it!

The papers are from the Graphic 45 Secret Garden Collection...such gorgeous colours! 

Whilst there is always plenty of opportunity for embellishments with this kind of a project, I had to be mindful of the need for the album to close, so kept them to a minimum on the inside pages!

I decided to leave some of the pages on the right blank so that the recipient could have fun choosing photographs...and could, also, 'theme' the album if they wanted to.


I used some of the Graphic 45 cut a parts to make the tags and also the little book at the front of the page below, adding some special little sentiments inside... 

This page was left clean and simple...ideal for a photograph or other special keepsakes.

The two pages together...

Thanks for stopping by!
