Craft Room Door Sign LCC

A theme for Mother prompted me to make this Craft Room door sign. The embroidery hoop wood shape is from Rosie's Studio in three sizes. I used the largest for this project. A small wooden bird shape top left fitted in with the materials and the paper pattern. Try your entry in Let's Craft and Create competitions.

Sympathy Rose

Sympathy cards can be difficult to get right , not too dreary but tasteful. I let the papers lead the design elements on this one. Spots are neutral looking and the colour story was appropriate. Whisper ink by Close to my Heart for the sentiment.

Love is in the Air - LCC

My first return effort for Let's Craft and Create. Love is in the Air competition click here to join the fun.
I used a paper purchased a few years ago from Kaisercraft. The house die cuts are a no brand product found on AliExpress. The sentiment is unusual and touching I feel.

Retail Specials

The Mangawhai Museum has one of my card stands in the Museum Shop which as a seasonal summer trade. The cards I make are " Beachy" or " Kiwi " and are identified as from the area. They have been great fun to make so now I can gear up my production with more free time.

Mom's Birthday

Back on the crafting tools after a 7 month break working, travelling and catching up on the garden. I'll be lucky if I have any audience left but here goes. This card is for my Mother who turns 93 next month. As she is not all that fond of being reminded of her age I have not included it on the front of the card. Now that I have so many more cutting dies it was great to layer them up!! The sun was just getting through the clouds and the corrugated clear roof so there are some shadows on the picture. A lesson for next time.

Forever Blowing Bubbles

This was a fun project for CCC Digi as the theme was a song or Nursery Rhyme. My song was " I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles , pretty bubbles in the air " . The paper matched the theme and had some copper highlights so I used some more copper card and embellishments including her copper earrings. Good fun with a bit of humour.

Thanks to sponsor Pink Gem Designs for the cute image.
