Get Well card

Unstampabelles' challenge 

#104 SeptemberPhoenix (rising from the Ashes) - as in salvaging a craft 'mistake' perhaps? Getting an education or career after a slow beginning; recovering from an illness ie Breast Cancer; celebrating a divorce?

                   TWIST: use an embossing folder 

This one stumped for a little while.  Then I thought about sending a card to someone who has been unwell.

I love the colour combo of blue, green and white. It's so fresh.  This is a particularly pretty embossing folder that I've used as well.

Father's Day card

 Hey, it's September. Spring has sprung. At last.

Tomorrow is Father's Day in Western Australia. I've made this card for my Dad. I'm hosting an afternoon tea for family at home. I hope he likes it.

I've made it to enter the Stick It Down card sketch challenge. Here is the sketch. I've used the collection On The Move by Kaisercraft (which I won from them some years ago).

Thanks for looking and happy Father's day to the Dads.

A scrapbook page about a door

The Alchemist Bar and Cafe

This bar in Melbourne is lovely.  This page is my Designer offering for Archiscraps this month.

Padua Street , Barcelona, Spain

Isn't this a lovely building?

You have to add a door.  The background paper I used is from Kaisercraft's Cottage Rose collection. Lots of doors and there is a door in one of my photos.  Got that covered that is for sure. haha

Cheers, Dale x

Best Wishes card


It is September. Time is marching on.

Time for a challenge at ARTastic.

The inspo pic is:

Cathy McClelland with Butterfly Tree

No photo description available.

The criteria is to use a stencil.  This is important. Don't forget this part.

This is the one I chose. It is quite cute and versatile.

I chose to make a card. I used some marker pens, stickers and washi.

I added some little butterfly stickers to go with the inspo pic.

Get creating. Have fun.

Thanks for looking.
