Hello Tag

Yikes! This photo has really made me think about my photography skills - they're crap! Hah. I keep blagging my way through the photos for my blog - I think things have gotta change.. including the backdrop I use to photograph my cards. I've been tryna find one of those little vintage flower frogs too, but no such luck (unless I'm willing to spend £10+, which I'm not), to help set the scene with my cards too, but not to worry. It's not life or death. 

Waffle aside, it's time for a new free theme this week over at My Mum's Craft Shop. Every fortnight Kitty lets us use whatever products we want from My Mum's Craft Shop to showcase whatever project we want. 

This week I chose to create a cute little tag, which could be used to adorn a little gift, or it could be added to a card base for a quick and easy card! :) 


First off I started with some yummy Kraft cardstock from Docrafts.
I used Die-namics Pierced Traditional Tag STAX from My Favorite Things to create my card base. I then used a Paper Smooches Topper Die to create the little cut out to thread the twine through.

As for decorating the tag, I used one set from Avery Elle - Laurels and the matching dies. SUPER easy!! I stamped the flowers with some NEW Hybrid Ink from My Favorite Things in Cotton Candy and Blue Raspberry.

A SUPER easy project, using some cute new stamps and matching dies to make it even easier. xo

Congratulations.....

Hey guys!!! missed me????
 Well I have been off gallivanting up hill & down dale the last couple of weeks, but I am back today to share my make for this weeks free week here at My Mum's Craft Shop....
this totally coincides with what I have been up to..... this was for my daughter's graduation , Yay!
I created my  card to be filled with this fab graduation image from SC... and coloured her with my Spectrums....
The "Congratulations" die cut  from Die-namics is just the perfect size, making for a "quickish" card (depending on how quick you can colour) hehe.I just 3d-d the image onto black cardstock adding the die cut down the side. It worked a treat.....
So, soak up the inspiration this week from the Dt girls... I must say there is some serious lushness here at MMCS blog... so stay tuned!!
Catch you soon
Hugs

Get well wishes

Hi all

Lyndsey with my regular Monday inspiration posting here on the MMCS Blog.

This week its a free week, so I went all pretty and natural

Anyway for my card I decided to use a cute Hobby House Topper -April Showers and decided that this image would be just perfect for a get well card.



I teamed the image with some lovely papers from Bazzil Basics - Vintage Lace paper pad and added a few pretty flowers and some lovely polka dot organza ribbon. The sentiment is from the CC Designs - Happy Day stamp set.

Hi all

Lyndsey here with my regular Monday inspiration posting here on the MMCS Blog.

This week its all about summer colours - when I think of summer of think of fresh yellow colours and lots of flowers. So thats the look I went for with my card. 

Anyway for my card I decided to use a cute MFT Pure Innocence - Sassitude stamp - I love this little sassy sweetheart, so cute and juts like my 8 year old!!



I teamed the image with some lovely papers from My Minds Eye - Now & Then, Dorothy paper pad and added a few pretty flowers and some lovely pale pink satin ribbon.
