Mini inchies on a Tag-Card

I was recently in the United States and visited Michael's in Orlando. What a great store. I found a huge Paper Pack and this tag has been cut out from one of the sheets.


I adhered mini inchies to the centre and on this tag and using dimensional tape attached it to the middle of my card after adding some white ribbon. I used a free download swallow to decorate it.

I have to scan my cards nowadays as the photos I take don't reflect the real colors.

Thanks for popping by!

Fall colors

I wanted to use the Fall colors for a grid, so I picked out these six squares which were in my little 'punched out squares' tray to make another grid. Love this season.



Have a lovely Sunday.

Gold, purple and black

Using punched out squares from projects that did not amount to anything. This time I used two squares, relatively similar, to achieve a different effect. The swallow is a free download. I already miss them dipping into the pool for water in the evenings although our weather is still beautiful and warm!



Thanks for visiting!

Making a puzzle

I like this blog because I don't have to write a lot of information on it, just share what I made and keep it simple.




This is just a simple grid card using up some scraps and then finding just the right butterfly to finish it off
with!

A grid with circles

Just using up some of the punched out circles, which I love to do, according to theme and color. This one reflects a bit of Nature.


We are having the most gorgeous summer, more outdoors than in. The swallows dominate the sky at the moment, especially when the evening air cools. They are such elegants creations and I love watching them.

Have a special day!

Using up the scraps

Mixing and matching some scraps which have come out of a lot of different projects which didn't emerge into anything. I just save every scrap and once and a while I punch out scraps and mix and match them all together.



I also punch out smaller squares and circles which fit onto a larger square.



This is such an enjoyable hobby, just like making puzzles!

Enjoy your free day today!

Postal Stamp

As somebody asked me about the Postal Stamp stamp which I used on my last post, I will show you the plate of stamps it came on. I liked several of these on the plate and did not purchase it for the postal stamp... I discovered that later on to my surprise and joy. It is the third one down on the right, I have put a little green dot on it. Actually, the one next to it, but one, to the left, could be used for the same purpose, but that is more difficult to cut out, but I am going to try it.



The postal stamp is just under 1,5" long and just over an inch wide (3,5x2,5cm).

If you want to find a stamp like this I suggest you google it or check out 'TOGA Printemps Rubber stamps'. TOGA is a French company and I presume they do not sell overseas. I do cut around mine although having a postage stamp punch would be great.

Good luck in finding one! Before I go I have made another one

Using a Postal stamp stamp

I found this little 'Postal stamp' stamp quite  by accident on a plate of stamps already in my possession... On these cards I stamped out eight stamps on each card.


Just imagine the possibilities with all the little scraps and patterned paper snips you have!





It has given me so much joy, just to stamp on scraps with it and realize a different look to a card, every time.

A Spring Grid

Mixing and matching everything yellow to welcome the daffodils and everything else yellow that blooms at this time of year.


I used an embossed aperture that my friend Betty Keife sent me.

Alcohol inks and white embossing

After making an alcohol ink background on glossy paper, with three alcohol ink colors, I stamped the big background Lace design stamp, from Here Arts with Versamark, before white embossing. I punched out twelve 1 1/4 squares and  assembled my grid. Made two cards.





Have a lovely weekend!

Using up the scraps!

A couple of grid cards, using up precious rests of cards, wine labels and patterned paper as well as stamped projects which didn't turn out as I wanted.



When I look at these I remember all the creativity that took place, which I enjoyed and still have the pleasure to bless others with a hand made card in the mail!

Circle Grid

I found some small punched out circles in my 'squares' box and once assembled they made a card. I love that when things just come together. No wasted paper, ink or effort!



I wish you peace today!

Vintage grid

Nearly every year I have made a grid with a vintage photo on it and yesterday I made my third one.


just an assortment of projects that didn't materialize punched out into squares, so as not to waste paper and ink but also to make a different kind of card wherein each piece finds its value.



Here is a little trio of grid cards I made in this fashion, only the one in the middle is from my lovely friend Franziska which she sent to me.
