The Closet Crafters Paper Share - 2017 Occasions Catalogue

My name is Chloe and I am a paper hoarder.

There, I said it and it does feels good to finally said it loud and proud. You see there is nothing wrong with loving pretty paper so much that you can't cut it up. I've actually been know to frame some paper that I just loved so much.

And because I understand this strange addiction, I am here to help others in the same situation. Every year I offer a paper share when the new Annual catalogue comes out, but to do my bit for humanity I've decided to also run one for the NEW Occasions catty too.
It's such a great way to get a good sample of all the papers without all the cost. Plus because they are 6"x6" in size, they are very easy to use up. Even the not so nice ones. Not that I've ever met a paper I didn't like!!

So what are you waiting for. Pop me an EMAIL and order your share today!!

Just Add Ink Blog Hop #343 - No Bones about It Pop-up Card

Well this is certainly start the year with a bang!! The team at JAI decided to kick off our 2017 of challenges with an EPIC blog hop and the theme is interactive/Pop-up cards!!

So if you are a regular visiting, then hello and welcome back, but if you've just hopped along from Rochelle Blok then a big warm welcome.

Wasn't Rochelle's creation amazing. She is seriously talented that girl. No wonder she was picked to be a Stampin' Up! Artisan!!

Ok so my card for the blog hop is actually a style I've been wanting to try for a while. I'm not big on interactive cards or fancy folds, but I really enjoyed making this one and I'm now thinking I might do a Fancy Fold Friday class or something. But enough about that, let me show you my card:

I don't really like making cards for no reason as otherwise I never seem to get anything made, but Mr.6 is having a birthday in a few weeks and I had planned to make him a card using the fantastic No Bones About It set. He absolutely loves receiving one of my cards and I always try to make it something different. Hence coordinating his card with this challenge.

I paired No Bones About It with some die cut leaves from the Botanical Builders framelits. The leafy patterned paper was actually made using one of the stamps from the set. I really love to make my own coordinating patterned paper, using stamps.
Well that's it from me today, Thank you for stopping by. Now to keep hopping with us, you are now off to Di Barnes's blog and I can tell you, that you have a real treat in store!!

Happy Crafting,

TGIF Sketch Challenge #90 - One Wild Ride

So I'm sticking with my new years resolution on make my cards a little more simple this year. And even though I will still do a few fussy, fancy cards I really do what to get back to what started my cardmaking love and that is the stamping.

So my card for today's sketch Challenge over at TGIF really is keeping it clean and simple. The sketch was a gorgeous one that I reckon could have lots of uses:
I pretty much kept to the design and I was really happy with how my card came out:
I never have enough male cards and this set have been crying out for ink since I got it (which has been too long!). I wanted the motorbike stamp to stand out, but not enough that the sentiment is hidden. Using a lighter shade then the sentiment is the perfect little tricky.

Bling and male cards never really go, but a pop of gold glimmer behind the circle makes it stand out and just makes it that little bit more special.

With the weekend coming up and the high temps, why not hid away in your craft room and join us this week. I would love to see you take on our sketch!!

TGIF Case the designer #88 - Happy Happenings

Christmas has been amazing and I've loved spending time with the family. we've swam everyday, eaten lots and just had a heap of fun. Unfortunately that has meant my crafting time has been no existence and so my blog has been a little quiet.

But I'm back today with my design team card for TGIF and this weeks challenge is to case one of my fellow DT's amazing creations and I was so excited to see we would be casing Kaitlyn Zumback.
When I was looking back over all of Kaitlyn's amazing creations I noticed that she likes to add a smaller panel to the middle of her cards and so that's where my inspiration came from:
Now this year, I have decided that I want to go back to more a clean and simple style of cards and this one is no different. I just love the water colour background that I have created with my aqua painters and I really wanted that, along with my sentiment, to be the hero of my card.

I added a little bit of copper thread and made the sentiment pop by cutting it out with one of the oval stitched framelits. Now all I need to do it, is pop this card in the post to my beautiful friend!!

So now it's over to you. Pop over and check out the other DT's creations and why not check out Kaitlyn's gorgeous designs and take part in our challenge this week!!

Happy Crafting,
