CWC Celebrations

Hello...well it's been horribly wet and grey in Scotland this week so I thought I'd bring out the CWC Celebrations kit to bring some colour in to my craft room.  

The cards I have made with this kit would be suitable for anyone, the colours are amazing, and just scream happiness and fun to me.  Again, as with all CWC kits, everything matches and it is soooo easy to make a fantabulous card!  

All the cards below are simply card blank, paper from the pad, a topper or two, some Candi, and of course my trusty Stickles/ Glossy Accents.

I hope you liked the cards, and if you'd like to leave any comments - I'd love to hear them.

Hugs,  Lorre-Anne x

Some Bee Crafty Cards

Hello again....I'm back with a new collection of cards made using some products from the fabulous Bee Crafty....their stamps are amazing quality & a dream to stamp with, and their Inkables templates are great fun to use too!

One of my fave sentiments...such an easy card to make, blend some Distress Inks onto white cardstock, spray a little water through an Inkables template and blot off with paper towel, matt and layer both background card and topper onto black card, and add some Nuvo Crystal Drops.  Love the colours in this card!

Another simple make due to the fabulousness of Bee Craftys products...I blended 2 Distress Inks onto white cardstock, inked through my Inkables template, stamped a Background texture, then stamped both the Splatter Swirl Circle and Be Yourself WORDage in black Versafine Ink.  I matted onto black and hot pink card then added to my white card blank.

I blended 2 Distress Inks onto white cardstock, inked through an Inkable Template, stamped the Never Regret WORDage stamp & the BEAUtanicals Dandelion stamp in Black Versafine ink, and matted onto black cardstock.  This was then added to a white card blank.

What a fantastic statement....I used Brushos to get the splatter effect on this card, stamped the Life Is A Canvas sentiment onto white cardstock and cut it into 3 pieces, matted onto black card, then a white card blank, and this was the end result! Love it!!!

I again used Brushos to get this effect, and used the Square Style Wire Set and the Style Wire Borders Set of stamps.  I finished off by matting onto black card and used Nuvo Crystal Drops to add dots along the wire border.

I hope you liked my cards, and if you have any comments or questions then please let me know.

Craftwork Cards Chalkboard Collection

Hello are a collection of cards I have made using CWCs Chalkboard kit, I absolutely adore the colours in this collection and once I started making some cards I couldn't stop myself.  I hope you like my creations, and any comments will be greatly appreciated.

I made the card above by cutting a few inches off the front of a white 6x6" card blank, I stuck down patterned paper from the paper pad, added a die cut sentiment and 2 die cut butterflies.  Lastly, I glittered round the sentiment and butterflies.

White 6x6" card blank, strip of patterned paper, die cut framed sentiment, die cut flowers & bird, Nuvo Crystal Drops and some Stickles.

White 6x6"card blank, strip of patterned paper ripped to give this fab effect, a sentiment topper, yellow organza ribbon, card candi and some Stickles.

White 6x6" card blank, another strip of paper from the pad that I have ripped to give a great torn effect, a sentiment, card candi and lots of Stickles.

White 6x6"card blank, a sheet of patterned paper from the kit cut to fit, white organza ribbon with sentiment and more Stickles.

White 6x6"card blank, 2 sheets of identical patterned paper from the kit (I fussy cut the floral part out of 1 sheet so I could decoupage it onto the other), a sentiment, white organza ribbon, card candi and Stickles to glitter it up!

Another white 6x6 card blank where I cut some off the front panel, 2 sheets of paper cut to size, a sentiment, white organza ribbon and my trusty Stickles glitter glue.

Another very simple card to make but I think it's really effective - the colours are stunning!  White 6x6"card blank, sheet of patterned paper from kit, a topper and Stickles.

Very easy card to make as CWC has done all the hard work here, white 6x6" card blank, patterned paper, sentiment topper, card candi, Stickles Glitter Glue and Glossy Accents.

White 6x6" card blank, small strip of patterned paper, 3 die cut frame toppers, 3 die cut flowers and some Stickles - you don't need much to make a lovely, classy card!

Hello.....well I've finally decided to give blogging a go at long last! Here goes my first blog......

Guess I should start by introducing name is Lorre-Anne, and I'm a stay at home mum to two mischievous wee boys ;-), and my fave hobby is crafting.  I began crafting in 2009, and solely made cards, but now 7 years on I enjoy making home decor, book folding and paper cutting.  My two little boys also love anything craft related so we can often be found surrounded by paper, paint, glue....having fun making whatever we feel like!  The boys always make handmade cards for peoples  birthdays etc, and I've had to start giving them their own stash so they leave mine alone :-)

Most of my posts will involve Craftwork Cards in some way as they are one of my favourite paper craft companies, and I think I may even be slightly addicted to buying their collections....and I know I'm not the only one!

I hope to post weekly with new projects I'm working on, do some tutorials on crafty creations I've made, and also just to update on any new fab crafty products I've spotted and want to share with all you lovely peeps.

Shall be on later to post some of my Craftwork Card creations.

Big crafty hugs
