Hi Everyone, it's ages since I did a post for Create with TLCand as Paulette is always so generous with her images and quotes I feel very guilty, so here is a card with not only a quote, but, also an image, both freebies recently. I felt they were meant to be matched? I hope you think you so too. (btw - the sentiment is straight, just the way the photo was taken!)
I haven't played at the Outlawz Sketch Challenge for a while either so two for one LOL.
Hi Everyone, this is a picture heavy post with assorted makes, I hope you can last it out LOL.
I thought I would finish off my gift giving makes with this set of birthday cards, which I made for one of my Sils, who actually buys special cards off a friend. I thought these may help.
Everything here was made with the help of the Cameo, dies, and a paper pad from Craft Sensations. I hope they are different enough so she will like at least one LOL. I made the most beautiful box to house them and the envelopes and forgot to take a photo of it duh! You can see the final package below the cards.
Below in the green metallic paper are the cards all packed up, the little box has a few choccies in it, the penguin pack is for my brother. (He also had one of the beer packs)
Hi Everyone here are a few boxes I did for Christmas, they hold a few chocolates and I gave star ones to my "luncheon" friends and the others to acquaintances instead of a card, they were thrilled I'm happy to say.
These star treat boxes cut from mirror card are
from Monicas Creative Room, with
labels I made into a cut file by Gina Cabrera,
tied with gold twine from stash
these star boxes were a freebie file I made into a cut file,
Hi Everyone, back to Christmas and a card and box I made for my new GGNiece, when we were looking around a local store's Christmas display, I saw these little baubles and thought they were perfect for a baby of mixed nationalities of Welsh, English and Scottish with a little Irish from her ancestors LOL. It would remind her of her Welsh heritage, I hope with the Welsh National costume, the Welsh National flower the Daffodil and of course the Dragon on our flag, it will.
Anyhow, the card is a cut file by Lori Whitlock, but I added the cut hearts and wrote the sentiment with the Silhouette pens, then added the layer to gold card also cut with the Silhouette. A couple of gems and it was done.
The box is a cupcake cut file from Paper Garden Products
showing the cupcake holder inside the box,
I had to make the hole slightly bigger for the bauble.
this is showing the bauble which has "Nadolig Llawen" written on it,
Hi Everyone, one of my old workmates and lunch pals is 80 this week and this is the card I did for her, she is a fanatical owl collector of anything and everything, so it HAD to be an owl card.
The pattern was a freebie from Papercrafts Magazine, I added it into the Silhouette Cameo design area and made a cut file from it. The card is a 7x5 size (7inches tall), I LOVE LOVE how the eyelashes cut. I added faux stitching, again with the Cameo. I added "real" paper from a pad by Craft Sensations, then added glitter with my new Sheena Douglas Sparkle Pens.
The sentiment was done on the computer and added to a free owl die, again a freebie from a magazine. A ribbon bow, cut and write the insert with the Silhouette pens, using an owl digital doodle stamp by ECoombs at Pixel & Co, and it was done, I cut a slice from the back layer to help it stand straight. I hope she liked it.
My middle brother has his 78th birthday on the 5th, so I decided to take advantage of the challenge to make him this card. I wanted to shout out that it was his birthday. As 4 years ago, we didn't think he would have another birthday. He survived and is healthier than ever. So definitely NEW for him and I thank God for each of his birthdays.
I coloured the image in PS with some paper piecing too and then cut it out a few times, to layer it, on the Silhouette Cameo, the speech bubble is a PS shape.
