Rosette Best Wishes

Hello There!

I’ve been having a good clear out of my crafting stash for the last few days, yup it took that long! I had stuff that I haven’t used for years and I’m certain I wouldn’t use again as the craft supplies I use now are very different from the ones I used to use so out it went. I’ve condensed my stash down quite a bit and tidied and re-organised as I went, wishful thinking I know but I suspect it won’t last for long hehe.

So, my goodies for you today are 2 paper packs in medium and large polka dots pastels and a cut file including 4 different rosette strips, one of each of the rosette strip designs and both paper packs feature in my card today. The rosette strips have scalloped and zig-zag edges, all you need to do is score down vertically in-between each scallop (or zig zag point) then fold along all scores, add tape to the ends to make a tube then form the circle by bringing the straight edge to the middle and gluing onto a circle of card stock. You can then add any embellishment to the center to cover the join, brads or buttons work great for this, my choice were some lovely pink-y coloured gem brads for today’s card.

I went for a pink and blue colour scheme for my card today, I’ve been feeling in a pastel mood of late for some reason and I followed a sketch from card patterns for my layout.

Over the Garden Fence

Hiyah!

I’ve updated my cloud paper pack and have it ready for you today, there are 8 pastel and brighter shades of blue from aqua through to indigo. I hope there is a shade there for you and it will be a handy addition to your stash :)

I created a little scene using one of the pastel blues as my backing paper, I cut some flowers from the flowers 2 cut file, popped some brads into the middles and placed them on top of some stems from my new stems cut file. No scene would be complete without a sun shining down so I created 2 shapes for you to chose from and finally added a garden fence onto some 3d foam pads. I followed a sketch from Deconstructing Jen for the rest of my card, I tried out some zig-zag stitching this time which took more time to do as I hand stitch but the results are so worth it, I love the look of it!

I hope you will find these new cut files round out the flower cut files somewhat and make them more usable, Ultimately I design for myself and what I would find useful and hopefully it is similar to what you will find useful too.

I had lots of bits and pieces left over so I made a tag to match my card.

Card + Digi, Paper pack, Cut file & Frugal Tip

Hiyah!!!!!

I’m waving frantically here! You can’t see me?…ok, I’ll stop. So, if you are reading this my site has transferred to the new shiny version for you. I’m so chuffed with the change because I have a ton more flexibility and hopefully it is easier for you to navigate. You will see that you can now actually browse older posts, I can’t put into words how frustrating it was that I didn’t have an ‘older posts’ button before, but now I do! Yay! Also I’ve been able to pop an example beside each digi, cut file, paper pack etc which gives you an immediate idea of how that item can look when it is used on a project. I’ve tried to make everything clear and easy to find but if you have any questions feel free as I may have forgotten something.

Ok, I thought I’d make my first post on my brand spanking new site a bit of a bumper one, I have the stripey paper, digi stamp and wave border shape used on this card for you today and a frugal tip too.

I added a ‘you’re a treasure’ sentiment to my digi in word ( right click on the image, then click on ‘text wrapping’ and chose ‘behind text’ ) and printed in a taupe brown colour then coloured with Copics. This is my first experience of working with Hug Snug seam binding, I coloured it with some tumbled glass re-inker and zapped it with my heat gun while scrunching it. I’m absolutely delighted with it, it dyed like a dream and looks like it was always that colour. I followed the sketch from Mojo Monday so I added a floral embellishment, I attacked a white pearl with a Copic marker for the middle and hand cut some paper leaves.

Frugal Tip:

Here is a picture showing my wave border after it has been cut, but wait before you throw the negative portion away!

wave cut 1

I trimmed the sides off my negative piece of card (the left over bit), turned them upside down and voila! I now have a new border with a slightly different shape of wave. When I asked my fella which shape he preferred he chose the negative rather than the positive, lol.  Look out for other negative pieces which could be used in a similar way, for example, using the negative from a label shape as a frame. I love being able to make my stash go further, well it is kind on the wallet!

Phew! That’s it for me today, have a nice evening!
