June's card kit for Happy Craft Creations

Morning all.

Its been a few weeks since i last posted. Towards the end of May i had a fall, quite a bad one which left me in hospital for 4 weeks. Home now and slowly recovering and able to sit for a bit longer each day.

I would like to thank everyone who has continued to view my blog even though i  have not posted anything new,

I thought i  would start on the May's "Happy Craft Challenge Designer Card Kit" first.

Kit Available here: https://thehappycraftchallenge.blogspot.com/?fbclid=IwAR3VDZsG97FsyJtLnAIpBB80DfMyi6_Jv8ZG1TYdJ0cdSPjpOIxsOiOXp5Q

Then  i start on the Christmas in July layout kit.

Its taken me several days to create these four card, probably could have done a fifth one  from the bits left over but left it a four.

I have not written any instruction for these cards, as they are simple with just paper layers and some fussy cut butterfly's from the paper , plus the embellishments in the pack. I did use the ribbon that the kit was tied up with thou and by Kazsazz …

Afternoon All


Its been a glorious day here is South East Queensland, the sky has been clear with sunshine, cool morning, the sun is now sinking into the horizon, so starting to get cool again but enjoyed the sunshine.

The Double page i am sharing is for the sketch challenge on "Stick It Down".
Don't very often do double page spreads, but sometimes you just need to get out of your comfort zone. Not going to write instructions as the only thing i cut where the suitcase that i have used as my embellishments and two of the photos. I have used 4 x 6" x 4" photos plus sentiment to put in the middle to add the description. of what the photos are about. When i was  happy with placement angle i cut the far right and far left photo at an angle to fit the pages

Once i gained the placement of photo's the rest was just embellish to my hearts desire, will definitely do this sketch again with other photos as it easily tells a story
