I’ve been having fun revisiting card kits this month and trying to use up bits and pieces from them. I made 16 cards with a bee-themed kit from Simon Says Stamp, a SheetLoad of mini slimline cards with a Love From Lizi kit, I have another 16 Christmas-themed cards that will be shared tomorrow, and … More Peacock Mini Slimlines | Patterned Paper Cards
We’re in the birthday spirit at Cupcake Inspirations this fortnight, with our theme being Balloons. Although that doesn’t mean you have to make a birthday card – you could use balloons for a new baby, a wedding, whatever you prefer! As long as there are balloons as a feature on your project, you can join … More CIC 524 | Birthday Hedgehog | Balloons
There have been a lot of days lately that I’ve been sharing more than one card at a time. I’ve been lucky that I’ve been able to come up with ways to connect them, because I hadn’t planned ahead to consider how to connect them in the blog posts.

But my … More One Stamp Two Ways | Video

I don’t have a snowflake die large enough to exactly copy it, but I came across a decently sized one when going through old … More Snowflakes | Mixed Media Card
I have two cards to share with you today. They’re quite different from eachother, but both share one feature – a complete lack of stamping!

I have cards planned for pretty much every day this month. Do I have them made yet? No. Do I at least make them with plenty of time to spare on the day I want them to be going live? Also no. I just got finished with making and photographing this one, and it is … More Beach Day | CAS Card
