Lotus flowers with Succulent Garden Suite

Dear Crafters,

Today I am using the Succulent Garden Suite, which I was not going to purchase, but…. I succumbed and jumped on the band wagon and bought it last week. My reasons were not only because I have seen so many amazing projects made with this bundle, but a couple of weeks ago, we went to the Blue Lotus Water Gardens in Yarra Junction with my family to celebrate my mums birthday. It was a stunning garden, so big and so much to see!

Here is a photo of one of the lotus ponds there.

and the lotus flowers were absolutely stunning!

Here are a couple of the many flowers I photographed.

So, after our visit there, I could see the use of the succulent framelits dies using Sweet Sugarplum card to create my own lotus flowers!

Here are a couple of the projects we made during my craft class on Saturday. The ladies loved creating them too!

This gift box uses the Window Box Thinlits dies with the Succulent framelits dies to create the lotus on top. We also incorporated the glimmer assortment pack, one of the Saleabration items recently added!

We also made a card using the Window Box Thinlits dies, to show my attendees the versatility of using the dies for card making also.

The sentiment on this card is from the Cool Treats stamp set.

If you live in Melbourne and haven’t been to the Blue Lotus Water Gardens, you must visit next year, a I have a feeling it may have closed now for 2017.

What do you think of my class projects?

Dear Crafters,

Today I have some more cards using the Cool Treats Suite.

There is nothing better than an ice cold treat when the sun is shining, especially today…. a public holiday in Melbourne!!!

I love how the framelits cut inside the stamped image, so as not to leave a white border around the edges of the ice treats.

And here is another card with an ice cream using the same colour combination!

I love how quick and easy these cards are to make using a little stamping, die cutting and some Designer Papers!

Cool Treats Ice-cream Card

Dear Crafters,

Today I have a deliciously sweet looking card for you using the Cool Treats Bundle which I made for my mum’s birthday today!!! I’m able to post it for you now, as we celebrated her birthday yesterday.

Who doesn’t love ice-cream right?!!! Check out the coordinating Designer Series paper, Tasty Treats. The sentiment is one that you could use for many occasions, not just birthdays.

I love how versatile this bundle is going to be. You can create masculine or feminine or anything you like, but swapping the colours.

I love the chocolate sauce dripping on the top scoop of ice-cream with a coordinating enamel dot on top!

Check out the gorgeous lace doilies too! I just love them. They come in a large pack and they are whisper white on one side and very vanilla on the other, making them so versatile. Be sure to get some of those for your projects!
