Hi Guys!

I don’t have a freebie for you today I’m afraid, I’ve been struggling for inspiration just lately so I thought I’d set myself a new frugal challenge.

I’m one for saving all manner of packaging and wrappings but I invariably end up just storing it rather than getting round to using it, not today! I dug out some decorative cellophane that came wrapped around some fresh flowers and made myself sit down and actually do something with it.

I cut a window in my card with a circle die and taped a panel of the cellophane that wasn’t too creased behind it, I die cut another piece of black card and covered all of the taped areas inside the card to keep it nice and neat.

I hand cut several of the different sized flowers from the remaining cellophane and layered them in stacks of three, I popped a brad into the middles to hold them together then I scrunched them up to give them some dimension. I cut some of the leaves from the cellophane and stuck them behind the flowers and adhered them to the edge of the window in my card.

I cut a banner from black and white card using Banners 1 and cut my sentiment in white using this font, I glued all of these pieces together then added a flower button and some thread to the banner before popping it onto my card with 3d foam pads.

Good Evening!

I hope you are having a fantastic weekend. We got our first ever car a few weeks ago so we went for a lovely drive in the country today, we had a lovely meal too followed by a visit to Ikea, a pretty great day in all :)

So what’s today’s freebie? I have some lacey square frames and borders for you to match the circle frames from my last post. Today’s square frame does come with a warning though, it is terribly delicate and I had some trouble removing it from my mat. It might be best to save this one for those 8″x8″ cards which are all the rave in the UK right now or it could make a lovely 12″x12″ scrapbook page background.

Good Afternoon!

I see that Ali Reeve has her first show back on Create and Craft TV since she sold my design, it’s tomorrow (Friday) at 11am, will any of you from the UK be tuning in? ;)

Onto today’s freebie. I have a new Lacey Circle Frame for you today, this is quite intricate so I’d recommend a lightweight cardstock, approx 160gsm/65lb is what I’ve used for my card today. I used one of the blooms from Flowers 1 cut from vellum for the flower in the middle of my gingham bow and Banners 1 for the backdrop to my sentiment (Quigley Wiggly Font).
