About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

CCM&M #124 - Triple B Challenge

Good afternoon!! It's challenge time over at CCM&M - and this fortnight new team mate Pamelia is hosting. She would like you to pick three different items from the following options to put on your project: butterflies, blue, birthday, banners or buttons. So that's three different items - not eg 3 butterflies. 

My card is a birthday card (that's the first of my B's). I've also used blue - and some buttons. This card was for my friend's son this past weekend.
The image is from Crafter's Companion's Angelica and Adam CD - one of the Create Companions. The papers are also from the CD. I love the combination of blue and green - but I know some people think they don't go together! I used Crafter's Companion 1" Alphabet and Number dies to cut the name and age, using the same dark and light card used for matting and layering. 

A bit of ribbon and a couple of buttons from my stash finished the whole thing off.

Make sure you pop over to the CCM&M blog to check out the work from the rest of the team - and get more inspiration. Then start work on your project. Don't forget - it's Triple B - so three DIFFERENT items from the list. We look forward to seeing your projects.

I would like to enter this into:

Will hopefully be back soon.

  9. A great card, I bet your friend and her son really loved it. The blue and green work really well together and the buttons and ribbon are fab embellishments for a boy themed card. Sally D.x.
