National Scrapbooking Month

May is National Scrapbooking Month with ‘The World Is Yours’ collection designed specially for this scrapbooking month, it is not just for scrapbookers there is something for card makers as well!

Take a look at these sweet cards I created, how cute are these.
‘The World is Yours’ papers brings these cards alive with a variety of textures and patterns including White Embossed Kraft card and a pretty Patterned Vellum.
I teamed the paper with Embellishing Thread and Gems and using the stamp set (shown below) which is so fun – remember, you can use this stamp set over and over again with your favorite coloured inks.

Any chance to make a card is good. I love surprising someone with a sweet handmade card or popping one in the post to brighten someones day. I hope you have the chance this weekend to create a card for someone special to you.

Happy Scrapbooking and Card Making Month to your and yours!

Spinner Cards

It’s been super fun teaching these sweet Spinner Cards to
all the girls who attended classes this week.
Take a look at a few of the different cards made…

Since creating these cards the girls have the confidence to re-create this style of card in the comfort of their own home as I teach them step by step instructions at a class. I’m such a visual learner – if I can see a card being made I can make it. This is how I like to share ideas.

Below are a few more Spinner Cards I made …did I mention I’m a bit addicted to making these cute cards??

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my Spinner Cards 🙂

Have a fabulous, crafty day.
