For You!

Firstly to everyone in the state of Queensland who has been affected by the horrendous floods recently ... my heart goes out to you! I can not imagine what you must all be going through, the media reports have been absolutely unbelievable with so many families and businesses losing so much! I was pleased that 'the boss', Tracy at my2angels, was out of harms way and that my blogging buddy Mel, was also OK, although she was a little wet!!!! Big hugs Mel!! I am not sure of the location of a lot of my other blogging friends but I hope that you are ALL safe.

At my2angels this month, we are showcasing embellishments so I have put together some cards where I have made my own embellishments. The first card ‘For You’ is using some Core-dinations Raspberry (or similar colour) cardstock and some Prima Flights of Fancy ‘Ladybug’ paper.
First I trimmed the card with a border punch and then attached pieces of inked Prima paper, behind the punching and also on the front of the card. Before attaching the larger piece of paper I tied some ribbon around the card then tied it towards the top of the card. Next I cut out a label shape from the reverse of the paper, inked the edges and stuck it so that it was under where the ribbon was tied. 

Next take your my2angels Circle Pendant and cut out a circle of the paper and apply your rub-on sentiment. Then stick this to the pendant and cover with Dimensional Magic. When dry position your flowers (I used two for depth) so that the pendant, when attached fits in the centre of the flower. Stick it down and tie a bow in your ribbon. 
The effect of the glossy centre to the flower, really finishes it off.  
Next ..... some flowers!!

Again using some Coredinations Raspberry, Snowflake & Kiwi (or similar) cardstocks. I have trimmed my Kiwi cardstock to fit inside the Raspberry card and then used a MS edge punch to form a lattice pattern. I have then attached this to the Snowflake card.  I used ribbon for my sentiment but you could easily change this for alpha stickers or a rub on. I have then used a pack of My2Angels Stemmed Star Flowers in Pink and made a bouquet out of them using again the Prima Flights of Fancy paper to 'wrap' them in.  I have added Pink Pearls to the centres of all the flowers and lightly Kindy Glitzed the petals.

   I inked the Tattered Angels Rockin Renaissance Crepe Ribbon with the VersaMagic Jumbo Java Ink, folded it and tucked it behind my bouquet. I finished off by adding a couple of MS punched butterflies which I also gave a dose of Kindy Glitz (Crystalina) I used Dimensional Magic to stick the bouquet and the butterflies to the card. You could use any butterflies of your choice ...  to see some chipboard ones, check out the Scrapware Section in the shop.

Finally .... I made a Rosette!!

I love making cardstock cards, for a long time I didn’t use a lot of patterned papers at all, so going back to using just a little paper was pretty easy for me!

First take the Core-dinations Sutter Butter cardstock and cut out a square card, cut out a slightly smaller piece of the French Roast cardstock for the mat on the front of the card. I have then ‘stitched’ a border around the edge (it looked a little bare!) its actually white rub ons which I have then rubbed with VersaMagic Jumbo Java ink, the same effect could be done with a gel pen and a steady hand or you could stitch it for real! I have then used some Graphic 45 paper and cut out a couple of ‘borders’ one with an edge punch using the reverse of the paper and one a straight strip which I have mounted onto some of the French Roast. Ink all the edges with the Jumbo Java ink
The rosette was made by cutting out a 4cm strip of the paper, scoring it at 1cm intervals and then concertina folding it. I used 2 circles to hold it at the back and front and then added a rub on sentiment to the front circle, again rubbing it with the brown ink to tone down the white. I also inked the edges and the ridges of my rosette. 

Stick the rosette on the card with some dimensional magic or other strong glue and you’re finished. 

One point thought I think this is more ‘a give to someone card’  than ‘a post to someone card’ LOL .... as it is rather lumpy!!!

TFL (as always) ..... be back soon!

Calendar pages ...

I was sorting through some 'stuff' last night and came across my calendar for 2009 and thought it would be such a shame to throw all the 'mini pages' away! So I set about pulling it all apart, adding a couple of things and re-attaching the pages to 12x12 cardstocks so I could put them in my albums!
Here are the 3 pages I got done last night .....
April 2009 .... Sam's 10th BD

March 2009 ..... pre-season football training at the beach
February 2009 .... Back to School 
Thanks for looking .... I also got a couple of cards made too, but can't show those yet! soon though!!
Don't forget to check the SALE out over at MY2ANGELS ....
Till next time ...

A new year and a LO from last year !!!

2011 already ..... Happy New Year everyone!!! I hope 2011 is kind to you all!!!

Hard to think 2010 has gone even though it was a year of change for me ..... I went back to work full time and my oldest son became a teenager (with all that goes with that title LOL!!) and I had the best year working with my bestie, Corrina on the my2angels DT! Tracy is awesome to work with and sooo easy to get on with!
Really looking forward to another fun filled term on her Design Team!!

This year we welcome Geli Duncan, Jess MacKenzie, Lindy Gillespie & Lisa Webb to the team, Welcome Girls!!! Looking forward to working with you!! 
A sad farewell though to the gorgeous Taryn, its been great working with you Taryn, good luck in your new ventures!!

Oh and whilst you are there check out Tracy's new Decorative Pins .... they are gorgeous!!  Here is one of my favs!!

Just a quick LO to share today ...... one I did last year (LOL!) using one of Tracy's Christmas embellishment tutorials last month .... I really really love this Bakers Twine!!!
I have used some Little Yellow Bicycle Christmas Delight Papers, ’ Tis the Season Stripe-Starry Night’ for the background and ‘Peppermint Mix-Frosty Mint Fa La La’ for the green panel.  I have wrapped some Bakers Twine ‘Maraschino Red & White’ around the green panel and tied on a My2Angels Christmas tree charm
Next I took a Scrapware Mini Fence (one of my absolute fav embellies!) and painted it using 'Ruby Red' Liquid Pearls, then I inked the top of the fence with white ink and added some Ranger White Embossing Puffs for some snow! I also inked and Crackle Accented a Scrapware Mini Holly and used the ‘Ruby Red’ Liquid Pearls for the berries.
My title and the snow flake are die cuts and I used Kindy Glitz on the letters and Diamond Dust on the snowflake! The ’10 for the date are Sassafras ‘Apple Jack’ Glitter Stickers.  
For the red candy lollies I have used an idea Tracy put on the blog a couple of weeks ago, only I didn’t use the lollipop charms, I just used the Bakers Twine and some punched circles. The stems are some My2Angels Silver Acrylic Chain with Rhinestones .  
So easy to make and yet so effective.

Thanks for looking! 
Catch you again soon
