Bon Voyage Cards

The 'Sail Away' collection from Kaisercraft is perfect for all things nautical and especially great when teamed with some of their latest nautical dies.
‘Sail Away’ Card DD730 Anchors C6. Decorative Die 730 Anchors C6 is such a fun and versatile die. As well as creating a fantastic full card image, you get loads of beautiful little anchors. I have used some red anchors to fill in the die from the half frame I cut. My mind is buzzing with how I am going to use the little anchors…

So many people are cruising and this would be a great die to use to wish them a ‘Bon Voyage’. Use it in whole or part. This would look fab with acetate or vellum behind! I have chosen to accentuate the big compass by popping some red patterned paper behind! I have a friend who is super excited to…

Waterfall Card Video

Waterfall Cards These are fun interactive cards and are fabulous for the Kaisercraft papers that have all those lovely little rectangular images on them. On the card, you simply pull a tab and your message is revealed while beautiful images cascade on top of your card.
Adults and children both enjoy them and invariable ask, “did you really make that?”.
For this Waterfall Card, I used the latest release from Kaisercraft  ‘Provincial’ .

Teepee Tree Christmas Card

For many years I have made these festive Christmas Tree Teepee cards and I thought I would share how I have made them with you. Super quick and super easy but so very impressive. 
Enjoy my video in which I show you how to make them and share how I have simply shaped the poinsettias with only my fingers!

This is the Teepee card made which stands 8″ tall.

I have added dimension to the die cut Poinsettias by ‘finger shaping’ them.

 I have used the ‘Holly Jolly’ stamp set and Kaisercrafts red and black ink to decorate this section of the tree.

Christmas Layout with 'Holy Night' Collection

“A child is born”
To me, Christmas is about family, friends and charity. It all becomes so magical when there are little ones about! One of my family traditions when my boys were younger was the special ‘night before Christmas gift’….a HUGE box containing, new pyjamas, a new book, some chocolate buttons to make a special Christmas eve hot chocolate, and a new ‘cuddle’ toy! I never captured this tradition in photo, but I have journalled it along with the many others we have.
This is a photo of a friends grandson, I have not been blessed with my own just yet! To me it sums up the spirit of Christmas, the magic of childhood innocence, excited in the traditions of the season.
