Typewriter thank you very much card

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with one of the cards I made for my project to thank all my lovely friends for their friendship-this one was for one of my male friends :-) I wanted them to be really special so I decorated them inside and out using Bo Bunny Timepiece collection papers and coordinating cardstock. I used the typewriter image with the message coming from the typewriter like a real typewriter-I rolled the paper to give it dimension, then placed 3D foam pads underneath to support it. I embellished with craftwork cards card candi. I wrote my message on cream card I cut using one of my favourite nestie dies.

All Crafts Challenge: My Precious Gorjuss Journal Scrapbook

Good morning everyone, I hope you are well :-) I am a bit under the weather at the moment so I apologise for being so quiet, but here is something I made a little while ago to show you for my All Crafts Challenge. I mentioned recently that I have a special journal that has messages written for me from people I admire-Alkaline Trio started it a few years ago and ever since I have collected lovely messages :-) For my birthday I made a project of sending positive message swaps to my friends and so I wanted to have somewhere really special to store these as my journal is only a plain notebook and is getting thick with sticking things into it, so I am making copies to put in the notebook that will be flat, and putting the originals in my scrapbook.  I won a prize a while ago from Crafty Devils Papercraft and I spent my vouchers on the Gorjuss collection of scrapbooking and decoupage, ribbons etc. Its always nice to start from a collection which is meant to go together, and I have added st…

A Little Bit Crafty: Childs Play

Good morning everyone, hope you are well! I am here with my DT card for our Child's Play challenge at A Little Bit Crafty this time. I used a LOTV image I adore which I coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, I then paired with Papermania Burleigh Blue papers and bows, then added for a flash of another colour yellow card as a mat under my image panel, and echoed this with a yellow bow.
