Falling In Love desk calendar

Love the butterfly paper!
I just loved making these desk calendars – soo quick to make. I think each of them took 15 minutes to make, which is quick crafting for me. I like taking my time with each project. 
I adore the Falling in Love designer papers. The paper is so beautiful and go so well together. You are probably able to find nicer looking note pads than I!
Please see the post with “A man calendar” for a guide on how to make the desk calendars.

This one is so shabby chick!
For these calendars beside the Falling in Love designer paper I used:

Butterfly is from Garden in Bloom stamp set.

Desk calendars are from 31st January 2017.

Playing butterflies card

I think for the first time I made cards that wasn’t for someone I already had in mind. All these birthdays/special occasions coming up and I wanted to have some nice cards ready.
I made a bunch of the bottom card with different sentiments. The top card was a kind of demo card. I made it, I liked it and then mass produced it – I made like five cards!
I used “Garden in Bloom” stamping set, brick wall embossing folder and I used daffodil delight, marina mist and rish razzleberry ink pads from Stampin’ up! I used yellow metal thread from a jewelry kit and I used one of my mum’s dies to cut out the sentiment on the bottom card.
I cut out the butterflies with scissors and put dimensional stickers on the card where I wanted the butterflies placed, but before placing the butterflies I pierced the metal thread through the dimensional stickers, with a tool I made a small “fish hook” on the end bits of the thread so that they can’t be pulled or slip out again. I then placed the butterflies on top of the stickers. It was very easy and I like having the thread indicating butterflies swirling around in the air. I think this card could benefit from having a green card base, maybe stamp the sentiment in green too, but I also like it as it is. 🙂

Cards are from the 27th September 2016.

Another b-day card – also inspired by Pinterest

Dear Husband-to-be, please note the tidy work space 😉
He says I’m always so messy!

Yes, another b-day card.. 🙂 This time for my aunt who also loves crafting. I had lots of fun making this card. Normally I like making simple cards so for me there is a lot going on, but in a good way.
I was inspired by this card from Pinterest.
I used butterfly punches by Martha Stewart, the flower die is by Tattered Lace and the embossing folder is by Stampin’ up! – quite a hybrid! I used tempting turquoise ink and cardstock from Stampin’ up! 
I don’t have a die for banners, so I cut them by hand first and then emboss. I will probably in the future invest in some banner dies to make things quicker and easier. Talking about dies, what I also really want is these stitched dies. They are really cute and brings another element of detail to the cards. Try and google them!
