Note Card Sets - Kaszazz


Here are a couple of note card sets I created as small gifts.
There are four note cards with inserts, and envelopes, in each set and they have been placed in a coordinating folder, Kaszazz stamps, inks and stencils have been used for both sets.

On this first set, Distress ink has been sponged through the honeycomb stencil and images from Springtime set stamped with archival inks.
The folder is closed with ribbon threaded through eyelets.

This second set is stamped with archival inks using images from Doodle design flowers and flower stems.
This folder is closed with a magnet and has a heart clip for support.

These are a great gift and very popular.

Till next time

Stampotique Christmas Cards - Jingle your own damn bells...

Ho, Ho, Ho - Jingle your own damn bells!!!

I think I am obsessed with Stampotique Stamps!  Check these ones out!

O Joy...

Santa Baby...

Oh My Dear...

I used Stampotique Stamps - images as above (all three images for the stamps were designed by Daniel Torrente - seriously awesome aren't they!?!).  I also used another Stampotique stamp - Jingle your own damn bells - hehe cracks me up!.

First I created my background - using paints randomly in sections and then I added stars (also with paint) and a star stencil. 

Finishing touches of ribbon, brads and little bells completed these fun, quirky Christmas cards.

I can't help thinking of that saying -
 When you want something done right, you have to do it yourself!
So, in this case...

Jingle your own damn bells!
See you soon

Kaisercraft Violet Crush Mini Album...


I really enjoy creating Mini Albums.  For this Album, I have used Kaisercraft's gorgeous Violet Crush Paper pad and collectables.

To create the pages for my albums, I recycle cardboard from cereal boxes, cut to size of my covers, then I adhere patterned paper to each side of the recycled cardboard.

I then add my embellishments, leaving plenty of space for photos to be added.

On some of the pages, I only adhere the embellishments on two of the sides to create a 'pocket' in which to tuck tags/cards for journalling etc

I bound this Mini Album using my Zutter and have added ribbons to the owires.

I created this particular album for my Handmade Swap partner - luckily she loves purple!

Enjoy the rest of your day.
