I am here with my card for the Paper Pros challenge and this months theme was GREEN.
I needed a card for my husbands Birthday and how lucky for me that his preferred beer is green! Also lucky for me there has been a whole ad campaign saying "If Carlsberg did..." So I changed that slightly to "If Carlsberg made cakes".

Its time for a Papers pro challenge than this month it was me who was going to choose the theme and I kept it real simple... LOVE. The Paper Pros could interpret that how they wished.
Here is my card and it was just a mass of me wanting to play with the new Karen Burniston dies from KB Riley and using lots of different sets to make this cute card.

I am here today with my first card of the new 2018 release from Karen Burniston. Crafts U Love have them in stock NOW. HERE
The first set I was keen on using was the Spinner Square die set, this is such a fabulous mechanism and can be used for so many things and decorated accordingly. I happened to buy some pink card from work the other day so I just grabbed that with no card in mind. Die cut the parts and went about the assembly. Karen Burniston always supplies assembly videos for her dies. After all they are hardly standard die cuts! Of course you are going to need help. So here is the link for the Spinner Square assembly instructions.

I am here today with a card I made for my Sister in Law Sue, who's birthday is tomorrow, I know she has opened the card so I thought I would share right away before I forget.
One of my favourite dies at the moment is the Karen Burniston Tag Book Pop Up die set. And you can purchase it at Crafts U Love as it is back in stock but selling like a hot donut! :) I prefer donuts to pies :)

Also thought well this blog is about what I love, at the moment I am sharing my love of crafts between Card making and Felt and I will be posting both to this one blog. Maybe I need a rename? Hmmm something to ponder. I do run Facebook pages, Stamping Caz Designs so I could probably encompass all crafts under that name. Besides, apart from Jo (Hi jo Bluefairy) I have such little interaction I am not actually sure anyone is reading this?! :)
For those that subscribe, I will entitle my blog posts accordingly. So if its Waffle, Needle Felt, Classes, or Card Making (or other if I think at a later date) I will label the post title so you can choose if you want to read or delete.
Talking Classes I am waiting for Crafts U Love to publish their list, I have given them many ideas so just waiting to see.
Also for local friends I am really really seriously thinking of local classes. Papercraft and Needle Felting. So watch this space.
Enough waffle for now, I am just about to post a Needle Felting Post to show of my first make of 2018.

I am here with a birthday card that I needed to make and I could not wait to play with the Karen Burniston Tag Book Pop up die set and the Cat & Dog set (although I only made the cat in this instance). Seems to be too long between cardmaking sessions and the dark and cold sometimes keep me out of the shed, but once I am in there I can hope to get the creative juices going.
I do have to mention the Tag Book is currently out of stock at Crafts U Love but it will be back, so sign up for product notifications on this item so you don't miss out on this item again as it flew out the first time.

Today its Paper Pro's Challenge again and this months challenge is Winter Birthday card Karen Aicken Painted MtnCards.
I left it a bit late (as usual) and had a bit of a Mojo block, so I went real simple, and sometimes simple is good.

This months theme was Holiday Cards and I decided it was about time I played with the Karen Burniston House & Fence Pop up. I teamed it up with a few other elements from the Holiday Charms. (I will link below)

Yesterday I made my first sleepy squirrel. I followed a video tutorial by serafina fibre art. Mid way through project I hit the "oh no it's rubbish" stage which most of my felties reach. But I carried on and pleased to say I was happy at the end.
I love this craft. Just need more time! It's very frustrating ATM.
