One Sheet Wonder Cards

Hi team,

16 cards from one sheet of paper?! You bet!!

This week I attempted a ‘one sheet wonder’ card. This is a set of cards which are created using 1 sheet of 12×12 patterned scrapbook paper. The template I used for these cards can be found here.

I also used 1 12×12 sheet of pale pink cardstock, and 2 A4 sheets of magenta cardstock. The end result was enough pieces of paper to create 16 cards.

It took quite a long time to cut all the pieces out! Part of that was because all the measurements were in imperial, and I’m used to only working in metric. It meant that each time I cut the paper, I had to double (and triple) check my paper was in the correct position.

The sentiment stamps are from Penny Black, I particularly like the “Wishing you a day filled with love and laughter” sentiment because it’s very versatile. I can use it for birthdays, weddings, and any other ‘special’ day.

The embellishments are all from my stash, I’m loving the larger pearls, I think they make the cards look really nicely finished. The little hearts are all punched out using a tiny punch, then I added some Glossy Accents to make them shiny.

I hope everyone is having a great week!

Thanks a Bunch

Hi team,

This week I decided I needed to use some flowers which had been sitting around for quite some time. I was playing around with them and made them into cute little bunches of flowers. I thought to myself……”well that’s pretty cool – I wonder if I have a stamp of a vase for them to sit in?”

Not only did I manage to find a stamp of a mason jar, but it even came with a pun sentiment! I had run out of ‘Thank You’ cards so it was a match made in heaven.

I made 3 bunches of flowers, so created 3 cards. All of the background papers are from Kaisercraft and I inked up the edges with some Distress Inks from Ranger. I stamped the mason jar and sentiment on to watercolour paper, then did some watercolouring with my distress inks.

I used hot glue to stick down the bunch of flowers, then some dimensional adhesive for the mason jar – the jar sticks out from the page quite a bit because the stems of the flowers are a little bulky. I won’t be sending these through the mail!

Simple, fun, and I only used what I have!

Have a great week,

Happy Mothers Day!

Hi team,

I made these cards a few weeks ago in time for Mothers Day here in Australia.
These were a lot of fun to make. I found the flowers in my stash and was inspired by those, and the fact that we’re having some chilly autumn weather (which I love).

The patterned paper is from My Minds Eye, and the edges are inked up using Distress InksΒ from Ranger.

The flowers, faux pearls, and diamontes were bought from a discount craft store in Melbourne when I was last there for work (which was quite a while ago). The leaves are a die from Elizabeth Crafts. The flowers and leaves are all inked with distress inks to give them a little more depth.

The sentiment stamp is from Kaisercraft, and I stamped it on some scrap paper from my stash. The lace looking stuff is actually a sticker. I’m hoping to use some more of that in the future as I have quite a bit of it!!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mummies out there!!!!

Have a great week,

Weezie

Floral Baby Bunting

Hi team,

This week I’ve got some super cute no-sew bunting that I made for my daughters room.

The fabulous fabric is from Tilda.Β I bought it at a craft fair a few years ago, put it in a cupboard when I got home, then promptly forgot about it! I was looking for something else in the cupboard recently when I discovered the fabric – I knew I needed to make something with it for my daughter, but I’m not a huge fan of sewing.

I found this video on You Tube and followed the steps – easy!

I made a triangle shaped template, then used it to cut out all my pieces. I glued the pieces with the right sides together, then once they were dry I turned them in the right way.

I kinda went a little overboard with the glue so the points aren’t overly pointy….more rounded. On the plus side they won’t be falling apart any time soon πŸ™‚

I then glued the triangles to some bias binding, and decorated the bunting with some vintage buttons I’ve had sitting in my stash for ages.

The finished product looks great (despite the non-pointy bunting) and my daughter loves it. Apologies that this last photo has the balloon mobile blocking the bunting, but it’s fairly painful to take the mobile down. I figure that photographing it ‘in-situ’ is probably better anyway!

Have a great week!

Love, Weezie

Xmas in August – Part 2

Xmas in August

Hi team,

I really love this weeks card – the sentiment and the image go together so well!

Papers are from Kaisercraft, with the exception of the green metallic paper which is creating a border for the main image. That’s actually origami paper I bought from Daiso. The flower embellishments are from my local craft store.

Have a wonderful week!

Love, Weezie

Xmas in…..August?

Xmas in August

Hi team,

So it’s no longer July….but I’ll continue with my Xmas themed cards! It’s still cold here so it totally counts πŸ™‚

Papers are from Kaisercraft; Ribbon is from American Crafts, the flower is from my local craft store.

The glitter on the flourishes in the top left are actually the result of me playing around with a bottle of glossy accents – it works really well as a glue!

Have a great week!

Love, Weezie
