PP June 2012 Kit Club Bonus Project Mini Album

Over the last couple of days I've worked on the Paper Phenomenon June 2012 Kit Club Bonus Project Mini Album.  This project is only available to those people who were members of the Paper Phenomenon June to August 2012 Kit Club membership.  The bonus project is really cute, simple and quick to put together. I say that I worked on it over the last couple of days but in reality the actual time spent is only several hours.  You could say the equivalent of doing a craft day workshop.

I didn't have the same paper collection that Kathy used, but I knew the Prima Madeline A4 paper pad that I had would be ideal for this project.  This paper collection is very pretty and I'm very happy with the end result of this mini album, it is beautiful to me.

Below are the photos I've taken, but I've also done a quick YouTube video.  To view my YouTube video click here.  To view the original project as created by Kathy Orta from Paper Phenomenon click here.

Wedding Card

On Friday I was asked if I would make a wedding card.  My work colleague hasn't been able to find a card that she likes and was wanting a more unique card.  She is to be a bridesmaid in the wedding.  I said that I would give it a go.

Last year I purchased the Webster's pages In Love and embellishment collection kit and I knew that this paper collection would be perfect for a wedding card.  It took me a little while to decide what type of card I wanted to do, especially given the size of the images in the paper pack, as it is a 12"x12" collection kit.  In the end my original thought of a tri-shutter card was the best option.  I modified the measurements slightly to allow for the size of the carriage.  I'm very happy with how this card turned out.  I also decided to add a bold colour in the image that I coloured, working with my Blue Green copics, since that is what I was told the bridesmaids would be wearing.

Once again with the tri-shutter I have made a small envelope so that a personal message can be written and hidden from the public view.  Without further ado, here is the card.

Farewell Card - Linden

One of my work colleagues, Linden, is leaving the team at the end of this coming week.  She is joining another section, after being in the team for the last few years.  When it came to discussing her farewell, all she asked for was a card from me.  This is a huge compliment and I was happy to fulfill her request.  It has been a little challenging for me as Linden has said she is not a girly girl and her favourite colour is green.  The style that I enjoy doing the most is girly girl, working with pinks, creams, browns, blues and with a touch of shabby chic.  So I put my thinking cap on and eventually thought a nature/garden style card, with green the predominate colour would be the best way to go.  I'm very happy with how it has turned out.  I also played with many of my craft products, which is always a good thing feeling that your investment has been well worth it.  Without further ado, here is the card.
