It's my party suite

At £23.50 the designer series paper stack might seem expensive but there are 48 30.5 cmx 30.5 cm sheets; 4 each of 12 double sided designs and believe me each and everyone of them are lush. 
The patterns coordinate with Basic Black; Crushed Curry; Melon Mambo; Mint Macaron; Sahara Sand and Whisper White. Whilst some sheets have a definite party theme with balloons and candles for instance most are quite neutral and can be used for any occasion. 

Yesterday I made these cards adding some It's my party washi tape, the matching Bakers twine combo pack and the enamel dots





Here are some of the cards I made

Perfectly Artistic


We all love getting something for free and when it is something as lovely and as versatile as this designer series paper it's even better. Even the idea of how to use it to make some great cards comes on the Sale-a- bration catalogue on page 18. 

I stuck with one design in three different colour ways





Which colour is your favourite? I think mine has to be Daffodil Delight.

I'm not a big fan of flowers but I live the colour combination used in this set of papers


Here are some of the cards I have made so far...









You're So Lovely Project Kit

When your crafting mojo has deserted you then a project kit can get those creative juices flowing again and at the end of it you have, in this case, twelve cards and envelopes and twelve matching gift bags to put them in. 

This, quick, easy but adorable kit is not my usual style but I'm pleased with the end results. What do you think?
