december daily 2012

Front cover of my 2012 December Daily I’m finally at the point where I am just finishing this off and adding the final finishing touches…. I used a sn@p album with an assortment of the page protectors. In general I used Kaisercraft’s ‘Mint Twist’ collection, with a few extras from elsewhere. I found though that I was disappointed in this collection though, I will have to think more carefully what I want in my stash for this year.

Including an Easter collection from Rusty Pickle and the fantastic Lemongrass collection from Crate Paper one of my first purchases ever (metal rimmed tag from the American Craft Simply Chic collection) and the last of about 8 packs of these amazing cork letters from Making Memories.

My interpretation of Shari Carroll’s card from Day 3 of Online Card Classes ‘Clean & Simple 2’ and I’m really pleased with it. It was super late when I was making this card last night and I must have spent 20 minutes trying to decide if to add another chevron strip (I didn’t) then more time faffing about whether to included a white dashed line Round the edge….
In another note, can I just say how cute I find these flowers, I picked them up in a bead shop in Aberdeen with no idea how I would use them, but they made it onto this card so it was totally a worthwhile purchase :P.

simple washi card

My adaptation of Jennifer’s card from day two of Online Card Classes ‘Clean & Simple 2’. I’m really not much of a stamper and those stamps I do have are not in the supply kit I currently have, but the inspiration I think is clear…
The sentiment was printed on my computer, the rest is just washi and a few scattered gems.
