White Poppies for Peace - Silhouette Cameo

Hello Friends,

Just popping in to show you what I've been making......

.....White Poppies as a sign of Peace.

I used a cut file from the Silhouette America shop along with some Whisper White & So Saffron card stock and ink from Stampin' Up.

Hope you have some time to craft today.

Thanks for popping by.

Mosaic Inspiration with the Silhouette Cameo

Hello Friends,

It's funny sometimes, how we gain inspiration.  A friend popped in earlier today and told me about a card she'd seen where you can use up lots of small bits of paper - she told me it was "mosaic" like.  I thought no more of it, my hairdresser arrived, who just happens to be friends with one of my neighbours daughters and she told me that my neighbour was celebrating his 70th birthday today, with her.

So, as soon as my hair was cut and she'd gone, I set myself to work with a "mosaic" themed card in mind and came up with this.....

......I'm really really pleased with how it turned out.  I used Pool Party & Basic Black card stock from Stampin' Up, together with paper from a new 6 x 6 stack I bought yesterday called Lost & Found - Portobello Road, by My Mind's Eye.

The die cut speech bubbles were cut on my Silhouette Cameo using a freebie from the Silhouette Cameo class that I'm enjoying right now from Studio Calico called Cutting Edge.  I love using pens in my Cameo, which is how the writing on the front was done.

Thanks for popping by today.

Happy crafting.

Silhouette Cameo & Maja Design Cards

Hello Friends,

Gosh it really  doesn't seem like nearly a fortnight since I last posted a card - I must have been busy!

I have a couple of cards to show you today, inspired by my trip to the countryside on Friday.  I had the most wonderful afternoon catching up with a couple of friends in their country kitchens.  I don't get out into the countryside much but my trip was lovely, chatting and eating home baked cake was a real treat, life is tough!

So on to my cards for today, I've made them little thank you cards for having me over and baking me cake......

Both cards are made using my very favourite card, Naturals White from Stampin' Up and my very favourite make of paper these days, Maja Designs.  The images are download from the Silhouette store and cut using my Silhouette Cameo.

They are perfect for my friends, living right out in the middle of nowhere - or so it seemed to me ;)!

Off to get them in the post!

Hope you have a crafty week.
