Art Deco

Wow this is a simple card!!
The topper is from the ultimate pack.
 I love my matting and layering as it can make the papers and images. pop.
It does add a bit of weight to the card.
So where possible I gut the card, this saves me card and cuts the weight down.
Everything is stuck with tape so is very flat.
Gutting is one of those technical terms, NOT.
 It means cutting a frame out of the card.
Save the centre piece of card for a future project and use the frame for your matting.
This really comes into it's own when using expensive card or when card is limited.
It does save pennies as well.
See you tomorrow

Love vintage notes

Yes I do love vintage notes.
This layout is one that i will be taking to demos this coming month. used textured card stock for the mats and vintage notes papers and journaling tags teamed up with some of the elements from the decoupage pack.
I am trying to schedule my posts so I don't miss a day so lets see if this works.I am preparing this on Tuesday morning to go live on Wednesday.

A touch of chronology

Loving the new chronology range. It has to be said I do love vintage and steampunk styles so this is great for me.
This card was made using a 5x7 card a piece of paper from the 8x8 paper pack that I cut and matted on black card. I then used some of the screw brads in the corners.
The stamped image is the freebie of the front of creativity magazine stamped and cut using the out of the box technique. I then matted this onto black card.
The hinge effect was created by cutting the winder part from the Xcut clock die set.
Quite a "clean" card watch out later when I post a distressed card.
Don't forget to pop over to to see a different
selection of cards.
See you tomorrow.

All aboard

So this little offering is from a batch of scrapbook layouts I have done. we are currently doing this one at my scrapbook crops.
The 12x12 card stock was a dotty coreordinations.
The papers are from home for christmas I used the X cut heart die and mats of black. the large heart was cut free hand and finished with a couple of gems.
The flower was made by cutting 8 small hearts folded in half and arranged in a circle. I topped the flower with a hand cut snowflake from a scrap of paper.
The leaves were cut from Cherry Lynn pine branch.
The title was cut on my cricut.
Pop back tomorrow for another card.

Been awhile

So I'm back the only way I could do it was to go back to my beloved Iphone. I have braved the weather and taken some pictures of my latest batch. So here we go again I promise to try and be a better blogger.
These 2 cards are both made using A5 kraft cards. The backing papers on the left card is from capsule collection spots and strips with the Vintage notes stamp and spots and strips flowers finished of with a button and bakers twine. The second card is using vintage notes papers and the flower etc is the same as the other card.

Pop back tomorrow and I will show you a scrapbook page using the vintage notes collection.
thanks for popping by.
