The other day I showed a handbag card made with a template from the March Crafty Templates set.
Well, while I was working on that one, I came up with this idea to"tweak" the template and make a card which would stand up on a base and close at the top with a bow.
Yet again most of the things I used here came from the "Birthday Star Goodies Kit".
I lightly coloured the base card with a couple of blue cats eye chalk inks, and sewed the little stars that come in the kit onto the side for a bit of bling.
Please go and check out the Crafty Templates website and blog when you have a minute, there's some great stuff to be found there.
These are a couple of sneak peeks of the circle journal I've just done. Probably for the first time ever I've finished these well ahead of posting date - normally I'm either just in time - or as it's been lately, a day or two late.
I'm never sure whether it's ok to show the full pages on a blog or not - should we wait till the book is back with it's owner to do the "reveal" or is it ok to post what we've done straightaway. Answers on a postcard, please - or alternatively, use the comments thread! ;-) I just love these papers, they are by We are Memory Keepers and came in the February SA Kit - I must try and track down a UK stockist as they are just gorgeous and make me think of Summery days.
I've made a couple of Wedding Anniversary cards today, I need one to send, and the other will go in the box on Hubby's desk. Not sure about the first one, it looks a bit "naked" - I may have got into the habit of using background paper too often, as I prefer the 2nd one by far. My cards used to have a lot of white card showing, but lately they seem so bare without a layer of pretty stuff in the background. Maybe it's just me though. I'd be interested to hear what you think.
Thanks for looking :-)
