Tri-Fold Birthday xx

Good morning everyone

Well sadly this will be my last Design Team post for Clare Curd Crafts, I want to thank everyone for their support and those who left me amazing comments to boost my confidence! And thanks to Clare for giving me the chance!

Now this week I created a lil tri-fold card

I took an A4 sheet of card and folded it twice to form my 3 panels, then taking those delish Fancy Pants What a Wonderful Day Collection, I decorated the panels on the front and the back. I added some ribbon to the panels too

I then took the utterly FAB Little Darlings Saturated Canary images and coloured them with markers, cutting them out and layering on the card with nestie ovals

I decorated the rest of the card with bunting I made from the scraps of the paper and twine for the front adding card candi to each one. Added gems and punched butterflies before finishing with lots of Mulberry Flowers, pins with seed beads and then of course glitter. The back I also added a text panel to write your little message, a birthday verse and then a die-cut butterfly to match everything in

I hope you like my wee creation and give an "oldie but a goody" tri-fold card a try!
Well until next time and thanks again for the support

Its just 2 easy xx

Hi everyone
Sorry for my wee post being a day late, been a hectic week here with all different things plus BIG Birthdays for family and friends!

This week for my Clare Curd post I've created a wee age card for a Special little one

This is how I made this wee quick number card

Using my Silhouette Cameo I drew out a 6x6 card then with the number 2 added it to the right side, fitting it to that half of the card. Then using the "rubber" tool removed all the extra lines adding a punched line to the middle to make it easier to fold. I also cut out another 2 to make the card sturdier

Once cut out I folded in half and stuck on the other white 2

Next I cut out another 2 slightly smaller using my American Craft Shoreline pad

I then stuck this onto the card after outlining with a marker

using some more Shoreline scraps I folding them in half then cut out some little triangles, edging with a marker again before sticking some twine in-between each piece then adding to the card

I finished with some gems, stickles glitter glue and also some letter and star stickers from the Fancy Pants What a Wonderful Day Kit

I hope you will try a number card out and don't forget to share!

Will till next time

Handbag or Giftbag??

Good morning my lovelies

and Happy Valentines Day to all my lovie dovie crafters out there! Did your partner surprise you with a card or bunch of flowers?? Hope they did!

Today I'm sharing a wee creation made with the most delish papers


these Fancy Pants What a Wonderful Day collection pack is just amazing!
If like me you like 12x12 "stroke-able" papers this is a set you need! Not only are the papers just fab, up to date and modern but the elements are fantastic for cards as well as Scrapbooking!

Here's what I made with mine

Yeah its a little tote style bag made using my Silhouette then Distressed all the edges with Tattered Rose

I stamped out my Saturated Canary image Krafty Kate. I coloured her with my markers and cut here out before sticking on to the bag with foam pads. I finished off the tote with some pink pearls on all the front and back corners

I even added brads to the bottom to give the little studded feet that totes sometimes have!
Its a great wee size and can happily fit and gift for that special friend or even some sweeties too!

I hope you like my wee bag and those amazing papers!
Well till next time

Take care everyone and have a great "LOVE" day

Fancy a Picnic??

Hello everyone
This week has been so busy with orders and then I've had a killer migraine since Wednesday, but at least I can function better! Anyways this week for my Clare Curd Design Team project I created a little Picnic Basket which doubles as a wee wee gift bag

Using old papers, lots of flowers and my fav Butterfly stamps I created my wee basket and made a wee tutorial just for you!

Firstly you want to cut panels as above to these sizes

1 - Handle : 2 x 29 cm
2 - Support : 2 x 18 cm with 4cm folds at either end
3 - Box : 18 x 22 cm again with 4cm folds all around
4 - Lid : 20.5 x 10.8 making folds at each side at 3 then 9 (this leaves a small panel in the middle)
5 - Base : 10.8 x 14.8 cm

Next I cut out my decorative panels with some old paper I found in my stash, I make the panels smaller so as to have a small borders once stuck to the basket

Next I ink the edges on all the papers using my Walnut Distress Ink

Next I made up the box part by taking small notches out of each side then I added the support panel to the inside and stuck down

Start sticking all the decorative panels to the basket parts including the lid and handle

stick the basket to the base leaving an equal border all round

Add glue to the support panel then stick down the lid
Be careful when sticking down the lid making sure its central to the basket

Lastly you want to add the handle. I used some matching brads and put them all the way through

Above you can see I added lots of Mulberry Flowers and leaves with lots of stickles glitter glue before making a little handle for either side. I used a small circle of silver card, a punched out flower and another matching brad

Stamping out my Butterflies with Memento Black Ink and coloured the with turquoise markers and pink markers

Adding them to the box before covering in more glitter

I hope you like my wee basket and maybe find the time to make one of your own
Till next time
