LPoCF #174 The Paper Shelter

 Hello again,

Happy New Year to you all! May this year be Happy, healthy, safe, prosperous and crafty! We are staying in, avoiding going out and about whilst the numbers of covid cases rise dramatically here in New South Wales, we have over 340,000 cases who are supposed to be remaining in isolation after testing positive. 

Today brings us to our second Anything Goes Challenge for this year with my team mates over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends for 2022! This fortnight we are sponsored by The Paper Shelter who kindly gave the Design Team Little Butterfly to use.

I have made a birthday card with the image and a Kaisercraft paper pad called  'Wandering Ivy', this is probably one of the easiest cards I have ever made, it is one sheet of paper with the bracket die cut out then I embossed the middle layer before carefully cutting around it as the next nesting size down was smaller than I wanted. The sentiment is from the same paper pad.

Here is my card:

Christmas gift holders

 Hello again,

Well I'm not sure about you but Christmas seems to have come around very quickly now it is all over for another year. We had summery Christmas and boxing days here in Australia 26C for Christmas day and 24C yesterday, today the weather has turned back to winter and it is only 10C and wet and drizzly outside. I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas and got to spend time with those that you love, we are heading back into restrictions from today with rising case numbers and over 400 told they were negative when they were actually positive for covid-Omicron. 

I am sharing the last two Christmas cards I made, these were for Mum who I gave some digital books to, nothing to wrap so I came up with gift card holders and printed the book covers and put them inside adding numbers to ones that came from a series, nothing drastically exciting I'm sure these have been seen around online in varying degrees over the years, apologies for the black looking buttons on the Santa suit, they are gold mirri card and are hard to photograph.

Santa and elf card holders:


What I used:-

9.4cm scrap pieces of 12" cardstock red and green scored at 2" and 7"
White, silver, gold, patterned card, red and black cardstock scraps
Scalloped rectangle, oval and border dies
circle and square punches
belt buckle die
Hole punch to add ribbon ties to the back

I would like to enter these gift card holders in:-

Wishing you all a very Happy, safe and healthy 2022! 
Thank you for looking in...
Have a wonderful week...

LPoCF #172 Morgan's Art World

 Hello again,

We are finally experiencing some summer weather, we have been fog bound for much of the last few weeks and have had lots of rain here in eastern Australia, so much so that our cherry tree crop for the year went mouldy on the tree and we have grown algae in the grass (which I have tried treating the area with Bi-Carb soda to kill it off)... 

Today at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends we have our last challenge for 2021, we are being sponsored by Morgan's Art World who kindly gave the Design Team three images to work with. I have used the rose from Morgan's Art World- Flowers 2 set to make a birthday card.
