Sunday Scrapping - Flowers, Cards & Sparklets!

Hi Everyone - Lowri here.

Hope you are having a great weekend. The sun is shining here in sunny Marlborough and I have a few bits and pieces to share today. We also have a fabulous Guest Designer featuring tomorrow. Her name is Corri Garza and she loves to stamp and use her Cricut machine - here is a sample of one of her fun cards.

Miss Nelly & Sparklets
I was looking at the Sparklets on-line and I realised that it's quite hard to see what they look like from the stock images on the website - so here is a better "real" picture.  They really are fun and VERY sparkly!

I needed to make a bunch of flowers for someone special who is due to have an operation - so I thought it would be a perfect excuse to try them out along with the new Miss Nelly collection from Kaisercraft.

I have cut the flowers using my Cuttlebug and Tim Holtz die. The whole bunch took around 45 minutes to make and they look wonderful. Hopefully they will cheer the recipient up - I love the idea of giving flowers that last forever! The Sparklets look great in the centre of the flowers, and as they come in 12 colours you can find some to match any paper collection.

Velvet Ensemble Cards
Our theme/Challenge this month is "Let's Hear it for the BOYS!" and take a look at these gorgeous cards created by Betsy using the Velvet Ensemble Collection from Kaisercraft.

Cards using this collection would be perfect to make for Fathers day. There is a huge variety of elements and prints in this collection - take a look at this sticker sheet for some inspiration!

  1. Toy Box is certainly my current fav. Especially the accent cut paper. I managed to make 2 cards using only just this one piece of paper. That's a great value product

  2. I still love the graphics 45 collection. I have made cards, layouts and a mini album. I'll make sur I have some sheets of it around.

  3. I think my favourite at the moment would be the Bo Bunny's Timepiece collection, it works for me :-)

  4. I have a 3 1/2 year old son and loved using the Bo Bunny Cambridge papers for some of his layouts and for a few other male projects Ive done I just love the colours they are definally a great male set of papers.....

  5. Love the Bo Bunny range too~

  6. Gorgeous projects Lowri, love the flowers! As for my fave male range...I would have to say the new Kaiser Hunt & Gather range,love the camping & fishing themed bits n pieces.

  7. I like the baby boy range, not sure of the name. I made a cute train album from it. But I really love the Hunter and Gatherer at the moment. Have made cards and scrap layout so far.

  8. I Love the Kaisercraft range Hunter & Gatherer gives great inspiration for layouts and cards.

  9. i really like kaisercrafts on the dot paper. it was perfect for my brother's 21st album.
