For this sketch I decided I wanted to do a masculine card, something a little different. So we have some old and of course some new products used here. I am just loving the new set called Everything Eleanor, I think I have used for every card I have made this last couple of days.
Here is the Sketch:
Here is my card, I didn’t want to use a bow as most males don’t really like them so I changed it to a buckle. as you can see the old is using the DSP called Mocha Morning Specialty, and the new is the stamp set Everything Eleanor and the glimmer paper. The sentiment is from Word Play.
Inside and of course the envelope matches this.
Make sure you check back on Sunday as I am part of a blog hop, show casing new products for the latest catty.
Good evening, tonight I have a card that I made for my fellow demonstrators that have celebrated their birthday either in July, August or September. Yes I know I am a bit late for the July ones, but hey better late than never right. Over at crafters Anonymous they have a challenge and that is every Tuesday to case a card from Pinterest. For the first time ever I thought I would give this ago.
Here is the original card I liked, sorry I don’t know who made this one.
I love this card but I needed to make a dozen of them so I scaled it down a bit. Here is my version:
Hope you have a great week.

Good evening, tonight I have a A4 scrapbook page to show you but this one is very different, at stamp camp we had a challenge and were given a small bag of scraps including an A4 piece of Very Vanilla, we were not allowed to use any cutting equipment to cut up the DSP but we could cut the Very Vanilla. Our group consisting of Pam Olds, Paula Reid, Vicky-Lee Mueller and myself decided to keep the A4 whole and make a scrapbook page with it. Some made baby cards, one group even used flax and made a very neat bunch of flowers with theirs.

We had a lot of fun making this and even learnt some new techniques, like the chain you can see at the top. This is using the scallop border punch. First you cut you paper at 7/16ths then you punch out one side along the whole side, then you turn it over and line it up against the markings on the punch and punch out that side. A big thank you to Sally who showed us this one.
