some new card makes

A couple of cards I made today ... soooo sorry about the picture quality I took them way too late in the day and I need a new camera badly! (hint*hint* santa!)

Hope you like them, made with PP images and shabby beautiful papers (lilac and perfectly pink) and some bits and pieces (ribbons, buttons and buckle), from my stash

Designers Needed...

We need more designers to fill our team! Is this you, then just get in touch!

(This call will close at midnight on November 12th. Designer announcement will be November 15th)


Still on the theme of solid colour papers which I really am so enjoying at the moment, we have So Sanded Solids out in the shop now too!

These are very worn at the edges, kind of scratchy. I like to tear these after printing for a really great textured effect. They have the effect of being rubbed with sandpaper so are very distressed and shabby.

They come in 20 deliciously gorgeous colours and I love them!

You can see them here and they are £2.50. Enjoy!

Some cards made with these papers to follow tomorrow :)

Simply Solids

Lots to show you today!

Our designers have been busy coming up with projects with our Simply Solids Papers which are brand new in the shop today.

I have made some mini cards with them too and I am so happy with the colours, I think I will be using these a LOT ! There are 29 lovely colours to choose from and a sheet of little sentiments
included too!

Solid plain papers are always needed but using these ONLY in a project I think is really nice sometimes, it can show the other elements of a project off and you can get really creative when there are no patterned papers to steal the show ... things like ...

dressing up with bling
stitching or faux stitching
a great image
texturizing with embossing or distressing
layering up
experimenting with colour combinations
adding embellishments, ribbons, twine, lace
or shaping the card iteself

Mini Cards

Mini Cards.

Made a few cards the same size as this.

They are quite mini cards compared to my usual 8" x 8" I love to use.

Off now to make envelopes to match as I don't have any in the size, I think it's just a bit bigger than A6.

I really like this size for a bit of a change.

We have a few new collections coming out over the next few days, the first of which is a Christmassy Papers Collection Mini - 'Merrily Christmas'.

It is very traditional using the perfect Christmas Red with black, white and Kraft colour tones.

We have kept the designs simple using traditional stripes and dots along with solids of course and complimenting snowflakes and some doodlies too!

A very versatile little collection and perfect for quick makes for christmas or even romance!
