Southern Hemisphere Leopard

I have another card to share today using the recently launched Pollyanna Pickering Sketch Book Chapter VIII - Journey to the Southern Hemisphere Paper Collection and CD ROM. You can find several more cards made using this collection HERE.


I have used the Black Leopard collection again today.  I used the card project sheet, these are perfect for beginner crafters, you can just print one sheet and follow the sketch to create a card.  I added some additional card stock layers and used one of the backing papers to create an additional base layer.


I also added a different sentiment, I cut it into a flag shape and created some card candi.


 THERE IS STILL TIME TO ENTER MY LITTLE GIVEAWAY - YOU CAN FIND IT HERE.

Birthday Shopping

Have you seen the super new toppers and backing sheet collections over in the Splash Crafts Shop.  You get four toppers, two sentiments, two borders and one sheet of patterned card stock in each pack.


I have used one of the toppers and some of the backing sheet from the pretty Coffee and Cream Glamour Pack to create my card, all I have added is some card stock, ribbon and a sentiment.


I have managed to create four cards using this pack and it only costs £1.29, that's what I call value - I will share the other three cards later, I just need to photograph them.

Penguin Patrol

I have created this card using the recently launched Pollyanna Pickering Sketch Book Chapter VIII - Journey to the Southern Hemisphere Paper Collection and CD ROM. You can find several more cards made using this collection HERE.

It's still hard to believe that Pollyanna has passed away. She will be missed so much - she was such a generous and lovely lady.


For this card I have used the Penguin collection, I think this is my favourite of the six collections - I love penguins.


Everything is from the CD with the exception of the hand made card candi, ribbon, twine and blue card stock.

Lace Butterflies

This is the sixth and final card, for now, that I have created with the Craftwork Cards Antiquites Collection - you can find the other five cards HERE.


This is a beautiful collection and I have really enjoyed playing with it.  I used a Spellbinders die and Fiskars border punch - everything else is from the collection.


I inked the edges of everything and fussy cut the butterflies.


Thank you for popping in today, your company is much appreciated - please leave a comment so that I can come and visit you.

This is the front page of the January section.


This is the next page with a pocket to store cards ready to send.


This is the pocket with a card in it.
