Card made Wed 04 Jun 08

Well my craft mojo is back in full force. I'm now in the mood to be creating often and I have my friend Nicole to thank for helping me get my craft mojo back. Nicole is new to card making, and her enthusiasm is very contagious. I am very excited to have my craft mojo back and am re-exploring all the great stuff I have in my craft room. I also decided that I really wanted to make a stamp with my latest Stampin' Up "Fabulous Flowers" set. This card was inspired by "The Stampin' Librarian".

Cheers FiLoMa

Cards made Mon 02 Jun 08

Yesterday at work my work colleague & friend Nicole showed me the lovely birthday card she had made for her friends 13 year daughter. I noticed that she had use some pattern paper that I had recently got from purchasing the UK magazine papercraft essentials issue 28. As it turns out she had purchased the same magazine. Seeing Nicole's card inspired me to come home and put together some cards using this patterned paper. I already had a design in mind, so I just had to make it come to life. I selected 6 pieces of paper and made the following cards:

The 2 white/teal cards have been used for
my WWRS Flood swap

I am really happy with how all these cards turned out. The majority of cardstock & ribbon are Stampin' Up. I was pleased that I could match the colours pretty well. I am inspired to go back and use previous pattern papers that have been part of a magazine purchase.

Birthday card

Yesterday was my girlfriend Elle's birthday. She had small dinner party with some of her closes friends, which fortunately I am lucky enough to be one. It was a great night, I had a really good time, the company was fabulous. Elle's into the black & white theme at the moment, she is even hosting a calendar 2009 swap of this theme, which I am participating in. As such, I decided to do her birthday card in the black & white theme. The birthday card was inspired by the calendar. Unfortunately I will not post a copy of the calendar page, well the one I have done, as I actually have to do two months, since there are only six participants. Anyway, I don't want anyone in that swap to see the calendar page before they get their calendar, so that page and other calendar pages will be posted towards the end of the year. Anyway, I did want to share the card that I made for Elle.
