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.

Carnaby Street

Just a quick post to show a recent make - it's not the best photo, but hopefully you get the idea. I was asked by my niece if I would make a card for her friend's birthday. She left it all up to me, apart from wanting her name and age on the card. I immediately thought of the Kanban Carnaby Street collection - and that, in turn, gave me my colour scheme.

For the base card I used red card from my stash. I mounted a sheet of paper from the Papermania Persimmon Collection A5 pad onto black glitter card. A quarter of a Kanban Carnaby Street Union Jack A4 sheet was firstly mounted onto silver mirror card and then onto black glitter card. The Carnaby Street A6 mat was mounted in the same way. The flowers were made from circles of card, cut into spirals, then rolled up and glued. This was all finished off with organza ribbon from my stash, and letters cut using X-Cut Smoothie Dielicious Die. The numbers are cut using an old set of X Cut alphabet dies.

Have another recent make to post - but can't do so until after tomorrow when the card will have been received.

So, see you later.
