This beautiful card uses more of Papermania capsule collection, but this time in a way that is brand new to me – teabag folding. I was watching youtube last week, and came across this video, of a lady making this fold for the top of a box. I thought it was so pretty I had to give it a go! This was my third completed flower (the first I have already given away on a card, which I forgot to photograph!)
I added two layered buttons and some bakers twine to complete the flower before adding to a simple Get Well Soon card
These cards, created with the Me to You collection from Mothers day this year. Some of the papers in the 6×6 pad are very mothers day centric, however, there are also a nice selection of general use papers in lilac and teal, with hints of yellow and pink, perfect for feminine birthday cards.
We recently got a cat, Freda, rescued from the local RSPCA centre.
I have been scrapbooking for a couple of years, both 12×12 pages and divided pages protector styles. I enjoy both, but 12×12 is what I do mostly, I reserve divided scrapbooking for specific events or trips where I want to get a lot of memory and photos scrapped quickly, and even then I supplement that with 12×12 pages.
So I wanted to document the new addition to our little family. I have recently discovered the themed project life cards from Becky Higgins, and bought the girl pack (by local Hobbycraft didn’t have the cat one), and so decided the use 3×4 cards on my layout in a grid pattern. The other elements on the page come from a variety of sources, including printable journaling cards from various places, items from previous Studio Calico kits, sequins, stamps, washi tape, and letter stickers.
For my first 12×12 page in a while I’m quite pleased with it, the photo doesn’t really do it justice (that might be something to do with the rubbish lighting!)
Back soon with more from the craft desk
