Thanks Swirly Background Card 8


This is my first post from my new house, all of my belongings are sat outside in a big ‘ole van but I’m here and I’ll have all of the time in the world to unpack and turn this house into our very own home :) The room that will become my craft room is small but if it is of interest to you I can take a few snaps along the way to share how I plan to organise it and let you see it take shape.

Onto today’s freebie, I have a swirly background for you and a background card along with a ribbon edge thanks sentiment square which will of course co-ordinate with the other mix and match cards and sentiments.

I backed my sentiment with some pink paper then popped a seam binding ribbon through the top and bottom of the square and attached it to my card front with 3d foam pads. I used another piece of the pink paper and adhered it behind the card front then added a couple of vellum flowers made from different size layers of the 5 petaled flower from Flowers 3 and some leaves from Branches 1 held together with some large brads.

    Thanks for the beautiful card and freebies, I love these kind of designs from you. My craft room is a tip, have been busy making valentines and Mother’s Day cards to sell in work and stuff all over the place so feel in need of a huge sort out and clear out…thinking of selling some bits on ebay…has anyone else done this? am a novice so need step by step on doing this.

    Enjoy your new home, can’t wait to see the craft room take shape

    Love Jackie x

    Congratulations Bird…it’s very exciting being in your own home, enjoy it. Would love to see your craft space evolve. It doesn’t have to be big to be workable and it’s just great to have a dedicated space that you can close the door on when it’s messy lol
    Thanks for another beautiful swirl background, these are so versatile.

  32. Jean Keetch

    TFS your beautiful files, and all your hard work. Would love to see you craft room. Jean

    Thanks so much, Laura

    Hi Bird

    How exciting – a brand new home to decorate – hopefully cutting and making some home decor using your cutting machine. I think it’s really exciting to move home – however, I must say, I admire you for getting on the pc while your stuff is outside in a van… You don’t appear to be stressed, which is marvellous…

    OMG – I would so LOVE to see before and after pics of your new craft ‘home’ – and anything else you care to share…

    Thanks for the new cut file – so very generous of you as ever…

  36. Lizette

    Good luck in your new house, hope it brings you lots of joy and that you will be very happy!
