Jan: Take one sheet

of this beautiful Pion paper that Jean has in the shop along with these stunning images and you can create the most gorgeous cards.

This is a simple card using the papers and images and embellished with those lush cabochons.

 Next is a pretty acetate card which is tricky to photograph. 
You make a concertina card base by folding a strip of card (mine is 10.5 cm x 12cm scored every 2cms). Fold a piece of acetate 10.5cm x  28cm in half to form the cover. Make a hole in the top of the acetate so that you can thread through the ribbon. Stick one side of the acetate to the edge of the concertina base. Decorate a tag, thread through the ribbon and secure with a bow. Then stick down the other edge of the acetate to the base. I have used a decorative border to hide the sticky tape.  See easy peasy.
Finally a sandwich board card courtesy of my friend Jo .
These papers are a joy to work with. They are so pretty and such delicate colours. I know you will enjoy playing with them too. So don't dither they may not be in the shop too long!

Julie: Scrapbook page 'Earning my Stripes'

Hello again.

The last time I was here I shared a layout which featured some of the unusual, hard to find, European papers which Jean sources for the shop. And today I'm doing the same:

This time I've used a lovely soft pink polka dot design from the' Edition Speciale' range by Infocrea range, as a backdrop for a page about my striped carpet:
This particular spotty paper is called 'Fashion' and is subtle enough to use as a full sheet without overpowering my photograph, and my titling still showed up too.

As an extra touch in the top right corner I added a Collections Elements chipboard heart complete with paint splodges and little striped paper strips:
Even more new, European, scrapbooking papers have been added to the shop this month - so if you like something a bit different [and that you won't see everyone else using] then make sure to drop by for a look.

The most recent are the new Pion papers - some of which are really useful 12x12 sheets divided into 4 6x6 papers. I've been playing with those this weekend and I'll be back to share them here next time.

Julie :-)

A little Shrine...

to Our lady of Guadalupe...I love this stamp and she fits perfectly in this triple Gothic arch

and the black german scrap is just the thing to decorate the edges.. I sanded it and added some colour with a yellow promarker and for a little extra sparkle added some Stickles.The papers I used are all still available in the shop....

and you can't have a shrine without wings... these were bright orange so they got the Promarker treatment too.
For everything you need to make this little shrine then hop on over to here... if you make one let me know so I can come visit.

Jan:Just in time

Oops just realised it's my turn to share with you this lovely Tando kit that Jean has in the shop.  It's perfect for telling your Mum you love her or in my case I've made this for a special friend.

I covered each layer with the fab My Minds Eye papers that absolutely flew of the shelves so if you missed them you need to be quicker or you could use any of the gorgeous papers currently in the shop. The layers were glued together and painted with gold paint.  I used florist wire to create the loop. So easy so effective. There's lots of different kits for you to choose from.
