My fave paper manufacturer of the moment seems to be My Mind's Eye. I can't stop buying their stuff at the moment. Last week I showed on here some cards made using the gorgeous "Pretty Please" collection, this time it's "Breaking Free" - which are just soooo summery and delish - totally irresistable.
I love the colour mix on these papers - and the designs are fab - a great set of florals, stripes, spots and fun stuff.
I made the flower for the above card just by cutting out some of the images from one of the floral papers, inking the edges, then pinching up the petals to add some dimension
I just adore the scalloped edge cardstock ice-cream design - it'll make a wonderful scrapbook LO (well, it would if I was a "proper" scrapper, anyway!). I'm going to have to buy another sheet, so that I can have a go at making a page because as soon as I saw the design, I knew what I wanted to do with it. Ijust had to use it as a background and make a Robo template of an ice-cream cone to match.
I searched and searched for the "right" colouring page to use to make a template, but none of them were quite what I wanted, so I used the best one, then used it as a guide to "draw" exactly what I wanted using Paint Shop Pro
I'm quite pleased with the finished template, I think I'll make some more summer-themed shapes in the hope that the last two days of blazing hot sunshine weren't just a fluke!
last week Hubby had to go to Middleburg, Holland for some meetings. I don't think he enjoyed the journey very much, mind you, if they'd planned it better it wouldn't have been so bad! nuff said!
Anyway, oooh I thought, what would be a good present he could bring back for poor Wifey left behind. Lots of diamond merchants in Holland, aren't there....
I did get a present.
Would you like to see it?
ah well....... :) :) :) :)
