Today I have made a total of five different birthday cards, all for challenges set by the DT at Soul Scrappers to celebrate the 7th birthday of the site.  Happy Birthday Soul!

Add a banner.

Add a number.

 Add the word birthday.

Add a cake. I've added lots of cupcakes.

 Add balloons. I made this one using a large circle punch and a small square punch.

Travel layout

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays - Week 168 Inspiration Piece (image)

This is the magazine cover insp for week 168 at Papercrafter's Corner.

I took inspiration from the word travel, the boats and the photo on my layout in the bottom left hand corner is very similar to the cover picture, the way the colours are blocked and there is a word at the top and white space.

I am determined to make more time to scrapbook this year so stay tuned for more from me in 2017.

Thanks for looking and happy crafting.

Warm Wishes card

Here is a card I have made today for Week 167 at Papercrafters Corner. Here is the magazine cover we have to take inspiration from. I picked out the red and the fish. I have also used Japanese Yuzen paper and done some paper folding, which is distinctly Japanese.  A very cute cover. The sentiment on my card reads "Warm Wishes" and has two flowers, all in gold. They're rub ons.

Thank you card

Hello and Happy New Year to my readers.
I've been feeling crafty lately. 
Did a bit of tidying in my craft space today and I've made a card.
The colour scheme is taken from the picture below, which is the inspiration for this month's Archiscraps challenge. Grey, yellow, cream and white. The criteria is to add lace.  
I had a new roll of lace ribbon I wanted to use. I have made a tag and a little paper flower for this card.

Thanks for looking.
