Circle Journals from last year

Here are the last 3 pages I did for my swap last year:  First theme is Ladies:
Stamps are Crafty Individuals, Tape is Ranger and punch is EK Success.

The theme for this was Summertime. I can't remember who made the sunbathers stamps.  Their hats are corks, the beach huts are from a Paperartsy stamp.

Finally the theme of Nature:  Main stamp is by Sarah Lugg used on watercolour paper.  Background is inked with distress inks and the stamps are from a "Pictorial Websters Dictionary" set I found in Liberty's in London.  Egg sticker is by Cavallini and the Feather came from VW Rouleaux.

Play Date Cafe Challenge no 175

The colours this week are Lavender, Buttermilk and Vanilla.  Very Spring-like, so I used my "I love Paris in the Springtime" stamp from Stampendous, stamped with Eggplant ink by Adirondak and with a background of Pan Pastels.
I added purple sparkly embossing powder to the edge and mounted it on buttermilk and lavender card with some pale purple ribbon.  The background paper is by Prima.  The heart border is a Martha Stewart punch threaded with cream ribbon and an Eiffel Tower charm.
Happy Easter and thank you for looking X

Happy Mother's Day

Not an original title but never mind!

A quick post with some of the cards I made recently for colleagues at work.  I'm sorry they're not brilliant pictures - I'd already packaged them before I remembered to take photos - I must remember to keep the camera handy because I am useless at remembering to use it.

I cut the letters on my Cricut and stamped them afterwards, then used Martha Stewart punch, Cuttlebug embossing folder and spellbinder die.

 On this card I cut the flowerpot on Cricut machine and added spellbinder foliage die leaves and punched flowers.

Large heart cut on Cricut and embossed, stamp is by Molly Bloom and "Best Mum" is a fridge magnet.

Hope you're having a good Mother's Day and thanks for looking X
