New Make & Take Projects

I am loving the New Kaszazz Catalogue…I’m also loving all the new Workshops and Projects for the FREE Make & Takes that have been created by some of the very talented Consultants across Australia.

Today I’m planning on featuring the New Make & Take Projects with you. These are the FREE Projects we do at Markets, Festivals, Events and for our own Open Houses. These are a great way for people to come along and discover they CAN craft. 🙂

Which is your favourite? Which one/s leap out at you for your attention?

I’m asking as I’ve got no idea just yet as to a fave…they’re all just too cute and adorable and too perfect to pick one. Ahhh, First World Problem. 🙂

Till Tomorrow!! xxx

Creating a Heritage Scrap Album Part 2

Welcome to Part 2 of Creating a Heritage Scrap Album. Great to have you here for more. 🙂

So you’ve gathered some photos, you’ve collected some extra details and information and now you want to bring it altogether and turn it into an Album. Yay!!

Where to from here?

For me, I find it helps to use photos that are all similar in shading and colour. A great deal of your older photos will be in black & white, sepia or similar. Photos from the 1960’s and later will more often than not be in colour. The great news is, there’s really no hard and fast rule on using ‘heritage’ shaded Papers or Card.

If you are working with colour pictures, pick one or two colours from your photos and feature these colours in your Page background. Otherwise, the sky is the limit.

Below are some images of different ways you can do a Page Layout to inspire you with the next step.

Family Tree

Grandparents

Family Home

 

Some of these Layouts may be originally done for other reasons; if they inspire you, and you feel they’d look good with your selection of photos, then go for it! There are no hard and fast rules where making your own Album is concerned.

However you choose to create your layouts, the main thing to remember is you are making memories to share with your loved ones for years and generations to come. Have fun with the process. 

Select your Album and feel free to decorate it however you feel works. To make your treasured photos last the generations to come, ensure your Pockets, Sleeves, Papers, Cardstock and Embellisments are Acid Free. Why? So they don’t corrupt and break down your photos. This is why it’s important to store any of the documents in Acid Free Pockets.

There you go…that’s my guide to Creating a Heritage Scrap Album. I hope you now feel more confident and empowered to go ahead and create your own Album. Remember, have fun with it, and enjoy the stories you’re uncovering.

Till Next Time!! xx

 

 

 

 

2016 Card Trends; still on track?

I love scrolling through Pinterest, as many of us do, and seeing so many different card making styles and designs. And then I get confused; there can be too much of a good thing.

Which got me thinking; “What were the predicted trends for this year?” Kaszazz does a great amount of research on this, and they certainly provide us Consultants plenty of inspiration and beautiful products. And I love how majority of the Workshops are actually designed by Consultants. Which are pretty much on trend.

I’ve been reviewing some of the clips from CHA over the weekend and a number of the predicted trends are certainly still going strong. I’ve even started to enjoy one or two of them! 😀 Others well, hmm, haven’t seen too much of.

Here’s a few of the ones that I’ve come across. Would love to hear your thoughts on these as well. 🙂

1/ Colouring In ~ There’s no doubt this is still HUGE!! I am starting to understand the appeal to be honest. And I am loving the latest Colouring Pads and Kits from Kaszazz. I find it interesting to see the preferred medium is markers. For me, my Watercolour Pencils are easier to work with, and can be just as vibrant. So I’m a little surprised with Markers being so popular for this one.

2/ Rose Gold ~ There’s no doubt metallics are BIG right now. And I for one adore them!!! Then again, I am a girl who loves her Bling, so there’s really no surprise there. But Rose Gold? I’m certainly seeing it in the stores for jewellery and accessories. I just haven’t seen it as much in cards and scrapping. Or are we a little slower here in BrisVegas?

f_card_17_rosegoldheart_pop3

3/ Journals ~ How awesome is this Trend?? To see so many starting to record what I’d still call a diary, to me is brilliant! I do love the Journal Pages and Art that has been flooding the net this year. Very inspiring.

4/ Watercolour ~ Yay!! I do love this one, and now that I’ve worked out how to do it to suit my own quirkiness, love, love, love!! 😀 The washed out looks that can be created to me is just calming and peaceful. I’m preferring this a lot more than ombre, though I still love a good ombre, more for nails though. 😉

5/ Fun Folds ~ When I mentioned this one to The Man over the weekend he laughed. Not because he disagrees; more because a) he knew what I was talking about and b) he’s seen how ‘fun’ these can really be behind the scenes. And looking through my photos from this year I can certainly see why he laughed. I’ve certainly stepped outside my own comfort zones and skill sets and attempted more and more Fun Fold cards as the year has gone on. What would be your fave Fun Fold to create?

6/ Patterns ~ Almost a no brainer. For me, I love Chevron and Tribal patterns 🙂 It’s great to see Cards with more and more Patterns coming through, especially when teamed with bold, bright colours.  Which patterns have caught your eye this year?

7/ Build Up Stamp Sets ~ Multi Layering Stamps to build up an image certainly creates some stunning Stamped Images. I actually don’t have any of these, not quite sure why not. Kaszazz does do a few 2 Step Stamps, none have happened to find their way to my Crafty Play Zone. Hmm, may have to work on that. For those of you awesome readers who have used Build Up Stamps, what do you think?

All in all, there’s some fantastic elements out there you’re sure to find a trend to make your own and enjoy. Would love to hear what you think of these and of any other trends you’ve come across this year. Anyone brave enough to make a prediction for 2017?

Till Next Time!! xx

 

 

Techie Tuesday – Perfect Pearls in Colour

This week for Techie Tuesday I wanted to have some fun…some very messy, get down and dirty kinda fun. With a touch of glam thrown in for good measure. And this is where you now find me. 🙂

I saw a few clips last week while I was laid up that featured so many of the different colour palettes for Perfect Pearls by Ranger. And I love them!! Which got me to thinking about adding my own colour to suit whatever it is I want them to suit.

Perfect Pearls in Colour demo

Previously on other Projects I’ve applied Perfect Pearls directly to freshly stamped images to create a softer, shimmery tint to my image, blended in with watercolour pencils for the same effect and the oldie but goodie, mixed in my Mini Mister Bottle with water to create a very shimmery spray.

 Until today, I’ve never tried to colour Perfect Pearls with re-inkers, so this was my challenge for this Techie Tuesday Post. Goals were to see a) Can it be done? & b) How effective is the end result?  I can safely say….NAILED IT!!

 I’ve used only a smidge of Perfect Pearls on the end of a spatula, added a smidge of a smidge to a tiny plastic container (for my Archival Re-Inker) and separated the rest of the smidge into two hills. One for the beautiful and rich, Fired Brick; the other for my all time fave Distress Colour, Squeezed Lemonade.

For each smidge I’ve only added one teeny drop from the dropper. Archival’s Manganese Blue is in the container to save cleaning up later. A fair bit easier than working on cleaning it all off my Craft Mat I can assure you. If you want it darker, simply add more colour; lighter, add more Perfect Pearls.

To colour my stamped image (done earlier on watercolour card with Stayz On Jet Black) I’ve used a slightly damp, fine paintbrush to pick up some of the Manganese Blue Pearls and colour. Because the Archival Inks don’t react with water as the Distress Inks do, I’m doing this one first and foremost. It did appear to dry rather quickly too, which helps.

I’ve then spritzed water over the entire watercolour card prior to using another fine paintbrush (this time rather wet) to swirl the remaining colours around on their own. I’ve then spritzed some water onto my Craft Mat and ‘combined’ (loosely used) my two Distress Colours together.

 Because of the added moisture, when I applied my Squeezed Lemonade and Fired Brick PP’s to my card, there is a fair amount of….hmmm seepage sounds ugh, bleeding? It ran pretty much, which is fine as I was planning on Fussy Cutting the image at the end. If you’re not into Fussy Cutting, I advise you skip the spritzing of the card and just keep your brush damp, not wet.

Perfect Pearls in Colour 2.JPG

 With a very wet brush, I was able to blend all my colours on the image once I’d finished adding my Pearly Inks…the end result has honestly won me over in a big way.

 **When cleaning up afterwards, I’ve found using some Stamp Cleaner works a treat on the tips of my brush that’s been dipped and swirled in the Archival Blends. I kind of ‘massage’ it through the bristles, being gentle and mindful of the brush itself. After the massage, then I swirl in around in a glass of water to rinse and spin so to speak….ooh sounds more like a session at the Day Spa! J Lucky Brush! 😉

As always, if there’s any of the Kaszazz Products you’d like to Order for your own Crafty Play Time, please send me a Private Message, or email and I’ll be in touch. Oooh and I will ask for your forgiveness with the quality of the video. I’m not brilliant at painting while standing up, but was the only way I could manage it today.

Now over to  you…have you tried this? Are you now thinking of trying it? Any other hints or tips you’d love to share with me about Perfect Pearls? I’d love to hear from you and certainly learn some more great techniques for my next Crafty Play Time!

Father’s Day Cards ~ How to create the ‘Perfect’ Card

Not long now till Father’s Day and time to really knuckle down and work out how to create the perfect Card for Dad.

And that’s where a lot of us get stuck isn’t it.

So how to overcome it?

I’ve actually been going through my stash of Cardmaking magazines to help out with this one….great tip if you’ve got a few around the home. There’s some wonderful suggestions and great layouts to use for inspiration.

Start with thinking about Dad…do you want to include some of the elements of his life in the Card? His job, interests and hobbies? Does he like fishing? Golf? With his job, are there elements you can use to decorate the front of his Card? Is he a Tech Wiz?

dad

Does Dad have a favourite quote or saying he uses regularly you could emboss or stamp?

Is he a frustrated traveller? Into camping or caravaning? Does he have a ‘thing’ for planes, trains or (without sounding like a movie title!) cars? Loves his books and history?

bert lance

Then start thinking about the colours Dad likes. Is he a more nautical style of guy, or naturals and woodsy colours?

Started coming up with ideas yet?

In our Clan we have such a variety of interests where the menfolk are concerned. For my Brother and a Nephew or three, AFL is a big thing, and they have a Team they are passionate supporters of which makes it pretty easy to come up with ideas for their Cards.

3 Star Guy Cards

My Father-In-Law (the awesome-est on the Planet I might add) he’s very ‘handy’ and enjoys the horse racing side of life. So for him, it’s pretty simple to come up with an idea or ten as well. It’s more a case of culling the ideas until the right one is left.

Of course these elements can be used all year round for any occasion. Simply hange the sentiment you stamp on the front for a Birthday, Congratulations, Retirement or Get Well Soon style Card.

IMG_20160715_143052

I’ve just finished off a Retirement Card for my FIL as he’s official ‘First Day of the Rest of Your Life’ is tomorrow.

Hopefully this has helped to inspire you to go out and create the Perfect Card for your Dad before Father’s Day. Or inspire you to create some amazing Birthday Cards for the guys in your World.

Till Next Time!! xx

 

 

Scrap Challenge

Ooops, apologies for being a week late on my Self Imposed Scrap Challenge. My focus has been on re-arranging and re-organising, and it appears it’s paid off!! Yippee!! 🙂

Today I’ve been more creative than I’ve been for the last couple of weeks…and yet, my Crafty Play Zone is still clean & tidy! Either I’m really sick (no comment…lol) or my plans have worked and this set up is certainly more conducive to my keeping everything tidy. I’ll go with Option 2 this time I think.

So today, after making up some cards, attempting to make a Ladybird Invite (I’ll work on that one some more tomorrow….not quite right yet) I then picked out some photos to do a Page with. The photos I chose are from last year…wow, actually nearly a year ago now…when we first took out the latest go-kart (Victor) to the track with our Housemate and The Man’s cousin. Was nice to have a few of our friends drop by for support and cheering throughout the morning we were trackside too. Great memories. Normally makes for a great Page right?

IMG_6817

I knew I wanted to do some stencilling on this one, so I pulled out the Chevron Stencil and used Manganese Blue and Aquamarine Archival Ink Pads to Ink Blend up the Page. Now that I like!! I then spritzed some water on the Stencil and ‘Ghosted’ the inked up side of the Stencil onto the Page….hmmm, was nervous about doing it…looked ok, but didn’t convince me.

I then tore up strips of Pool SB Essentials from my Scrap Stash and coloured with Chipped Sapphire and Blueprint Sketch Distress Paints before spritzing with water. Nup, not right for this project. Hmmm, next idea.

I love the shade of blue with Blueprint Sketch Distress Paint…and The Man’s fave colour is Blue. Which got me to thinking of using the Stencil again with some Distress Paint and…..Texture Paste! I’ve never actually mixed these two mediums before so was a little…nah not at all….very curious to see how this blend would work out. For the most part…WOW!!

While the Texture Paste was still damp I sprinkled some White Embossing Powder over the top in small sections and let it sit like that for 15 minutes before using my Heat Tool to set the Embossing Powder. Yes, the Texture Paste did ‘puff’ a little, but compared to other times I’ve done this technique this remained pretty flat and true to the Stencil.

After mounting the photos on the soon to be retired Denim SB Paper and rounding only two of the corners on the photos and the matting, add a little more Ink Blending on the SB Paper I was ready to pull it altogether and wrap it up.

IMG_6825

I’m quite happy with the end result. Actually I’m really happy with the end result. I found the Scrap Album I did up for The Man’s 30th Birthday pressie (nearly a decade ago now) and wow….I’m not ashamed of those Pages, but I’m sure not about to show them off to the World at large either. 😉

So that’s my Self Imposed (Late) Scrap Challenge wrapped up for this round. I’ll kick off the next Page before the weekend. I’ve already picked out a photo of my Great Grandparents I want to use and I’m looking forward to using. It was taken at their 50th Wedding Anniversary I believe. So that’s my next Challenge Page to focus on. 😀

Till Next Time!! xx

How To: Bling Gift Tags

I’ve done it!!! I’m no fan of writing up instructions for projects…it’s a big speed bump for me, yet I have no idea why. So when I can successfully sit down and type up instructions with very little effort I’m over the moon! Either that or I’m instantly suspicious that I’ve left something out or something else isn’t adding up. Hence my excitement to kick off today’s Post.

I really enjoyed making up these Gift Tags. These are actually the Prize for playing Alphabet Soup during my Online Event last night. Once I finished making them though I just kept going. They are THAT fun to make! 

IMG_6676 (2)

All Products I’ve used for these Tags is from the Winter Wonderland Collection recently released by Kaszazz. Contact me directly if you’d like further information on the Winter Wonderland Stamps or SB Papers.

Bling Gift Tags

To make these up you’ll need;

  • 4 pieces of White Card measuring 9cm x 5cm
  • Winter Wonderland Word Montage Stamp Set
  • Alice Uncut Stamp Set
  • Wonderland Deer Uncut Stamp Set
  • Archival Ink Pads
    • Viridian, Aquamarine and Rose Madder
  • Alcohol Ink Art Markers
    • Blush and Powder
  • Metallic Tape, Silver Glitter 2 lengths approx 10cm each
  • Corner Rounder Punch or Envelope Punch Board
  • Single Hole Punch
  • 4 lengths of Seam Binding Ribbon measuring approx 15cms each

How To;

  1. Using the Chisel Point of the Alcohol Ink Art Markers colour one length of Metallic Tape, Silver Glitter with Blush and the other with the Powder AIAMs. Set aside.
  2. Stamping your Tags
    1. Tag 1) Stamp your Celebrate along the Right Edge in Rose Madder Archival Ink. Imagine you’ve already attached your Glitter Tape to position your Oval Shape Hanging Baubles on the Upper Left Side of your Tag. Use the Rose Madder Archival Ink to stamp. Set aside.
    2. Tag 2) Again using the Rose Madder Archival Ink, stamp your Eat, Drink & Be Happy close to the centre of your Tag. To stamp the little Pine Tree from the Alice Uncut Stamp Set, use Viridian Archival Ink Pad and position in the Lower Left corner of your Tag. Set aside.
    3. Tag 3) Use your Sparkle & Shine Stamp in Aquamarine Archival Ink closer to the bottom of your Tag and slightly off centre. Using the same Aquamarine, stamp the Round Hanging Baubles on the Upper Left Side (same as for Tag 1). Set aside.
    4. Tag 4) Stamp your Hugs & Kisses stamp in Aquamarine Archival Ink in the Bottom Left Corner of your Tag. In the opposite Upper Right Corner (position as Tags 1 & 3) stamp the Birds Hanging Baubles also in Aquamarine Archival Ink. Set aside.
  3. Trim your Metallic Tape Glitter lengths to measure approx 5cm each. Position and attach each Powder coloured piece on Tags 3 & 4 along the Top Edge. Repeat with the Blush pieces for Tags 1 & 2.
  4. Using either the Envelope Punch Board or a Corner Rounder Punch, punch the corners on each Tag so all four Tags have nicely rounded corners and no sharp edges. There should be virtually no resistance from your Punch when using it on the Metallic Tape sections.
  5. Punch a single hole in the Glitter area at the top of each Tag so you are able to thread your Ribbon through and complete your Tags. Again, there should be virtually no resistance while you’re punching through the Glitter. Thread a Pre Cut Ribbon length through each Tag one at a time. Tie off with either a knot or bow, whichever you prefer.

YAY…you’re now the proud owner of some rather snazzy Bling Gift Tags!!

IMG_6680 (2)

Hope you’ve enjoyed making these Gift Tags…as I said, super easy and a lot of fun. I haven’t added the small Envelope in this tutorial as the SB Paper I used (Elegance Collection) is heading to ‘Tahiti’ when the current Catalogue expires in mid September. I’ll work out an alternative in the near future and let you know the details. 🙂

Please drop me a line and share a pic of your completed Tags either here in the Comments or on my Facebook Page. Would love to see your creations!

Till Next Time!! xx Happy Crafting!!

 

 

 

Taking a moment…

Every August Brisbane has the Royal Agricultural Show on in town…we call it The Ekka…beats me as to why, it’s a Queensland thing I’m thinking. I may live here, and have for more than a decade now, but I’m still a New South Wales born Victorian. 🙂 Confused?? Trust me, it explains oh so much. 😉 Anyhoo, traditionally when it’s Ekka time, we get some fierce Westerly Winds sweeping through the region…Ekka starts this coming Friday, winds started last night. So today literally is a whirlwind of pretty much everything.

Ekka Wheel

What a start to August it’s been too. The Kaszazz World is buzzing with new special offers, as per usual….rightio, got that, to be expected….but as we say Adiós mid September to the current Catalogue and Project Book there’s the trepidation/excitement attached with the upcoming new Catalogue. Yesterday saw the List of Tahiti Bound Retirees from the 2015 Catalogue and Project Book….not that Kaszazz called it that, but I think that sounds more snazzy than List of Retiring Products.

Not a huge List, I think last year’s List was nearly 17 pages. Only five pages this year though we are having over 80 New Products heading our way come September 16th. WOW!!! That really does soften the blow of losing some loved and precious stamps…and SB Papers. I’m actually quite shocked at some of the Retirees, but wait….there’s more!!

Sorry, now I sound like an Infomercial….and it’s not even two in the morning! 😀

1000-ixuxjll5

Today saw the early release (again) of our August New Products!! OMG….Super Cuteness Alert!! All nerves for tonight’s Online Event have diminished due to Super Cuteness and Awwwwwww. Can understand now why Kaszazz has set some of the SB Papers bound for, well I’ll say Tahiti; sounds nicer than retirement doesn’t it?

I’m super glad now I popped my top up order in this afternoon instead of this morning. See, the Universe knew there was something around the corner for me to fall in love with…that and it was too dang windy for my Naughty Knees to work this morning. I’m just hoping now my order will arrive before our Public Holiday next Wednesday. Should be here Tuesday, but Brisbane being Brisbane, and The Ekka being The Ekka, every surrounding local council has a different Public Holiday during next week. So hoping our Mail Centre isn’t due for theirs till after my delivery! Oooh super selfish, sorry…..but then I can share with you first hand the new SB Papers!!! See, I’m looking out for you, honest. 😉 You believe me right?

Time to go and prep myself some dinner, then get cozy and ready to work tonight while celebrating the awesome and amazing men in our lives. Kinda wish we did Father’s Day twice a year…don’t think we celebrate these men enough. Ok, shoot me if you like. I’ll understand…hehehe

IMG_6676 (2)

 

Tomorrow I’ll do up the Tutorial for my cute Prize that’s heading to a new home tonight. It’s the cause of The Man going to work last night with Glitter through his hair…oops, me bad? He wants a head massage as he wakes up that’s cool….I’m not responsible for how much Glitter has stuck to me no matter how many times I’ve washed and dried my hands…it’s Glitter, it’s more temperamental than an old alley cat!

On that note…HAPPY CRAFTING!!

Here’s to being back on your feet…

I love quirky Cards, and when it comes to Get Well Soon ones, the quirkier the better. Not that I have anything against the flowers and ribbons everyone seems to give, or the ‘Naughty Dr/Nurse’ humour that sells by the truckloads. They’re all pretty awesome, but I love something that’s a little more personal, individual and quirky.

And when I saw today’s Card Inspiration on Pinterest (again…lol) I knew I had to make one using Kaszazz products. I needed to “Kaszazzify” it! 😀 And considering yesterday I was playing around with my Jungle Friends Turtle Stamp and my AIAMs, unintentionally or subconsciously, I was setting myself up for today.

I’ve used SB Essentials Keylime for the ‘grass’ (p. 188 in the online catalogue) and trimmed down to my 1cm score line so I had a) a cutting to point and b) somewhere to adhere my 6mm Super Tape to. I then used my Bone Scorer to add some curl to some of the blades. I’ve also used our Magic Mount to the back of the fussy cut Turtle so he had some dimension and height to him over the blades of grass.

My background (which I’ve been sitting on for nearly a month!) was created using our Clouds & Waves Stencil with Manganese Blue & Aquamarine Archival Ink Pads with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink Pad ink blended to create some interest.

All in all, this Card fits the bill….quirky, fun and bright. For a Get Well Soon Card, I think this ticks all the boxes. If you’d like to make this Card yourself, or purchase any of the products I’ve used, please drop me a line. Would love to hear from you.

Till Next Time!! xx

“3 Star Guy” Card

What a gorgeous start to the week it’s been so far. 🙂 I’m quite happy to be plowing through the Father’s Day Cards I need for the Markets, and really happy with the variety I’ve created thus far. This has got to be one of my favourites, the 3 Star Guy card, coz every guy should be treated like a 3 Star VIP in my opinion. Well, let’s be honest, we all should be treated like a 3 Star VIP shouldn’t we.

There’s a few things you will need to make this Card yourself, but it is super easy and quick! I love quick projects, especially if I can make them while I’m cooking dinner or waiting for the kettle to boil for  a cuppa. And if this disorganised clutz can do it, rest assured you’ll be more than able to as well.

IMG_6201 (2)

 

Follow these simple Instructions to make your own 3 Star Guy card.

You’ll need;

  • Kaszazz SB Essentials 12×12 Card; I’ve used both Butter and Chocolate Card in my Samples, cut to measure 21cm x 15cm. Score at 10½cms, fold & burnish for a crisp fold line.
  • Kaszazz SB Ebony & Ivory Spots/Definitions 12×12 Paper. Cut to measure 14.7cm x 5cm. You can make it 15cm even so it sits flush with the Card edge if you prefer.
  • Ezy Press Die-cut & Embossing Machine (or similar machine if you have one)
  • Star shape Dies. I’ve used the smallest Star from the Star Die Set by Kaszazz.
  • Stamps or the Father definition from the SB Paper.
  • Small piece of Card to mount your Sentiment on
  • Vintage Photo Distress Ink Pad
  • Ink Blending Tool and Replacement Foam
  • Ruler
  • Paper Trimmer
  • 3mm & 6mm Super Tape
  • 1cm of Magic Mount Foam Tape
  • Glossy Accents

How To;

  • Place your Ebony & Ivory SB Paper on your Die-Cut plate. For the Ezy Press you’ll require the Pink & Blue Plates for this project. Ensure your Shape Die is in the correct position to cut through your SB Paper. I’ve used the smallest Star Die from the Stars Thick Paper Cutting Die Set. Crank through your Machine. Reposition your chosen Shape and repeat till you have 3 Die-cut Shapes for your Card.
  • Using your Super Tape, attach your Die-cut Panel on the Right hand edge of your Card Front. I use the 3mm on the areas where the Star is close to the edge and 6mm for the remaining sides.
  • Using a small drip or two of Glossy Accents attach two of your Die-cut Shapes to the Left hand side of your Card. I usually do these two Stars showing the same design as my Panel opposite.
  • Using the Magic Mount on the back of your third Star, attach so your Star/Shape is sitting in the middle of your Card, slightly overlapping the middle join. Be mindful of not covering up any of your Die-cut shapes.
  • If you’re using one of the phrases from the Definitions on the SB Paper, trim to size with your Paper Trimmer. For Stamping, trim your spare Card to fit your Stamped Sentiment. This should be no wider than 10cm otherwise it will hang off your Card. Stamp your Sentiment with Vintage Photo Distress Ink Pad.
  • Use Super Tape to attach your Sentiment or Phrase to the front of your Card, carefully avoiding any of the other Stars.
  • Fini!

Super easy right? If you’d like to make this Card up for a child or for a lady, simply swap around which colours you use for both your SB Essentials 12×12 Card and/or SB 12×12 Paper.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this quick and fun Card. Would love to see your version when you make them up.

Till Next Time!! xx
