Hi back again to share with you my next three projects for Paper Heart Designs 30 Day Craft Challenge...

So Day 4 was "Family" so I have used a layout I created a little while back as I seem to be getting further behind :)
The photo is of my partners family taken about 30 or so years ago!!  I have used Kaiser's Velvet Ensemble paper collection and chipboard.  The flowers are also Kaiser Paper Blooms as is the wooden flourish, rub on,lettering and acetate frame.

Day 5 was "Journey"...  This is a photo taken of my daughter Chloe one day when we were down at Semaphore beach, she took off and just keep walking and walking, it was very cute!!  All products used on this 6x6 page are all SU!!

And lastly Day 6 "Stripes"... This layout is also a little older, I created it to enter a challenge and forgot to enter it!!!  The background is white bazzill, I have used Kaiser's Botanical clear stamp on the white!! All the other paper is stripes cut fro Kaiser's LOve Notes Collection. I have also used Kaiser rhinestones and rhinestones!

I thought I would share with you my Paper Heart Designs 30 Day Craft Challenge that I am 
participating in on Facebook, it is so much fun, each day we are given a word and have to create a project that incorporates that word!!

Day 1 was "Flourish".  I have made this box for a special friend using the Kaiser Writing Desk painter with black kaisercolour.  The papers are Teresa Collins and Kaiser. The flowers and flourish Prima.  The other embellishments and flowers are randoms from my stash.... So I have used a decorative flourish for this one!!

Day 2 was "Recycled". The stamp is Magnolia coloured with copics, paper Pink Gelato from Kaiser the paper flowers, rhinestones, ribbon and rub on are also all kaiser.  So my recycled is a paper doily that I was given on my plate when out at a cafe one day!!

Day 3, today is "Vevlet".  Today I have made another card, this time using an old SU range. The stamp is a Stamp It stamp. The paper flowers Prima and Kaiser Pearls.  The Large Fower and leaves are from Miss Violet Sister Rose.  So today my use of the word Velvet is that the large flower, the leaves and the ribbon are old made of Velvet!!

Hi and welcome to my blog and first ever post! I have wanted to start a blog for quite a few years and never gotten around to it until today!  I am addicted to all things papercraft and love locking myself away in my craft room.  As I said in my profile I work at a gorgeous little craft shop that is North East of Adelaide which is a dream job! It is also such a bonus as I get to meet so many addicted crafters like myself.. I hope you enjoy visiting my blog and I hope to be back later with a creation to share with you !!!
