I hope you all had a great Easter weekend if you celebrate it.
It was lovely to be off work for 4 days straight.
We managed to get out for lunch enjoyed a few walks in the unexpected sunshine
over the last couple of days.
Anyhoo, I got a copy of the Creativity Magazine which had a
Santoro cover gift this time, so I decided to have a bit of a play!
I make loads of cards to sell for charity & as a result, I like to be as
thrifty as I possible when making them!
Here's what I made using the freebie & some stuff mainly from my scraps box!
Decoupage, buttons & paper were from the kit.
The ribon is upcycled from a christmas gift set & the lace was
a scrap from another project,
To be thrifty, I often split the decoupage & use every second layer to
make another image. You'll see a card I made using this in a mo!
The sentiment was cut with a Tattered Lace die.
Again, a scrap of lace, the gift set ribbon & some of the ribbon tags from a top.
The sentiment tag was part of the kit & I added a peel of greeting!
This is the second layers of the decoupage matted & layered then placed on an oval die cut.
The ribon is from another gift set & the lace is from my stash!
After I had stuck it on, it srtuck me that it would have looked lovely as bunting!
Bling from my stash & sentmiment from another Tattered Lace die
A kraft base for this one, a Martha Stewart Doily Border Punch added a
little bit of detail. The sentiment was a Tonic tape runner, which has lots od
different fonts. The little flower is from Do Crafts I think,
it's been kicking about my stash forever!
Last one for now, I used papers from my scrap box,
the sentiment is another font from the tape runner, a Tattered Lace
die cut heart button & some die cut flourishes to embellish
as well as a scrap of lace & some upcycled ribbon!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
