Crafty Creations

The last few days have been all out of wack, to the point where I was about to create a new blog and remembered I hadn’t posted my lovely class ladies wonderful  achievements for Friday.

We made a card with a difference and tapped into the current craze for colouring. Stampin ‘ Up! as usual are right on trend and have offered this paper free with any order over $90 AUD. They aptly  called it Inside the Lines.


Whilst it may look a simple card, Side Easel Card, we had some fun precisely lining up the little squares.

Whilst it is hard to see in the image there is a trail of Olive Green under the butterflies (Now retired) taken from One Wild Ride. Most of the sentiments were courtesy of Rose from Teeny Tiny Sentiments. The  original card was an Easter card with sentiment from Suite sentiment.

On the inside we made a space for some words. I plan on something like “Now the Easter Holidays are here just grab yourself some Watercolour pencils and just relax!! ” and a piece for more colouring.

Measurements  and tutorial can be found here.

At this time of the year thoughts also turn to the New Year and keeping track of the day, the date and all those thoughts that arise that mustn’t be forgotten.  So what better way to help someone along than to present them with a desk calendar and sticky notes!! Which is exactly what we made at class.


“Sending a smile your way “or “You are every lovely word I could possibly think of ” seemed to fit the bill for lasting affirmations for the year.  These lovely verses and the stamps are part of the Love and Affection Stamp set and the DSP is Affectionately Yours.

We did attach a small piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock to the back as well for a note to the recipient, appropriately decorated with the same stamp set.

The folding is simple.  Cut a piece of  A4 card stock  in half length ways. Fold one piece in half then one end in half again. Cut a separate piece to match the folded size of your card base from the other section and attach to small folded section.   For more help go to

We have one more post for Crafty’s then a Christmas Break till February the 6th.

But pop back here to see what else I am up to during the break.

Cheers and thank you one and all.
