Very simple and easy, but pretty All card bases measure 4x6 inches


Cut your pattern paper at 3 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches and tape onto your card base.
Cut another piece of pattern paper at 2 1/2 x 5 3/4 inches
but before you tape this down glue a piece of pretty ribbon
over the top and underneath to hold it.
Now tape this to the card base using foam tape.
Then add all your embellies as well as the flair button in the middle of the flower.

Truely blessed

The card base is 4x6 inches 
Cut your pattern paper at 3 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches and tape to the card base.
I have used a white paper doily and pleated in the middle
going round and round in the centre to make it frilly.
Then glue to the middle of the flower and then adhere to the card base.
Add your flair button to the centre of the flower
and also some cut out flowers, heart sequins and your phrase to the card.

You're my sweetheart

As you all  know I have a little to much stash,
 and my new room is still not big enough. 
So I decided I had better use it up. 
So why not make some cards.
I found some lovely card sketches on the

Perfect Happiness

Welcome welcome to another day of crafting and creating.
Today I have made this tag for my Just Add Flair
tutorial for this month.
I have this mighty scrap box that is over flowing with scraps
and more scraps. So I on a mission to use some.
I am getting there....

My tag measures about 3 1/8 x 6 3/8 inches I think it is about a size 8 tag.
My papers and collectables come from the 
Kaisercraft PS I love you collection

I have just torn pieces and glued them onto the front of the tag,
 distressed edges where it was needed.
Some are raised with foam tape and other are flat.
I then glued on the flowers, clock, butterflies,
hearts and words all from the collectable pack.
I added a flair button right in the middle of the paper
heart and also had some coloured pink gauze in my stash
and poked it in here and there to add some contrast.
I used a stapler to adhere the gauze to the top
of the tag.

Welcome again to another month this tutorial is for 
My layout today is made from a kit I bought from Kitaholics.
And yes the photo is off my grand daughter Zarna Rose.

The heart was printed on the pattern paper.
So I cut it out carefully with a craft knife. I used a needle and
carefully poked some holes around the heart design, 
Then hand sewed around the heart with the twine.
I also added some thin gold washi tape. 
I cut a piece of cardstock and taped it to the back of the background piece to fill the heart hole shape.
Using foam tape, tape the heart to the background. 

I have added flowers, papers and embellies to the layout and also went around using my 
finger with gold paint and then added some black ink to the edges as well.

Mixed media tag

Welcome everyone.
 My turn again for the Memory Maze design team project.
I have created a tag for this month it measures 3 1/8 x 6 3/8 inches.

I am trying very hard to use up my scraps I have used the
 Kaisercraft Coastal Escape collection.
I cut the bottom paper at 6x3 inches then another piece at 5 3/4 x 2 inches.
Glue these to the front of the tag, oh firstly go around the edges with 
an edge distresser. I also added a shell tag under the top paper.
I used a mask from Memory Maze and some light texture paste
and applied this to the top of my tag.
I then went and pulled out the circle piece with the mermaid on it and the shells,
 starfish and the seaweed.
I covered all these with some white paint, anything will do I just added it
so the colour will stand out more.
I used some Tim Holtz distress crayons, on the mermaid I added some
black marks to make scales and hair.
I also added some of the colours around and splashed them onto the tag.
In the collectables was a large shell so I cut down the centre a few times
 to make this fan out a bit.
I cut 3 pieces of the web ribbon at 2 inches then cut down these as well.
Pleated them uo and glued them to the bottom of the shell.
Glue this onto the bottom of the tag then add the shells, 
mermaid piece the saying and the twine.
