I must tell you that Lisa Mincker is working again,,,,,,,creating and designing stunning and gorgeus works with her personal and unique style.....woww,owwww,,, Thanks Lisa-

Christmas Gift Set....

Ohhh geeze..... Let me look here. Okay, it's still 148 days until Christmas!

However, for those of you are way ahead of the game and want to get started early or have already started and just need a little inspiration to finish up the last of your cards, here's a great place to look...The Cutting Cafe.This week, the team and I will be displaying several ideas for Christmas cards that are a real beauty!
Regina has created some outstanding files for the cutting machines AND for those that don't have a cutting machine

Here I've taken the idea of her cards and converted it over to an ornament that I thought would be fun to send with a matching card.


The picture is too dark to see the vintage image inside the box, but it's there and so a thank you goes to Ignacio fromvNicecrane Designs for supplying this adorable image from the Vintage Christmas Cards Alphabet

Stop in and see the rest of the makes and I'm certain you'll be inspired. 

And Here some of the cards included on the Pack

It is a Must-Have for any Crafter

Do you love Victorian Women?
I have just finished a new Victorian Sheet called "Henry Hutt`s Women", so colorful,  so elegant, so vintage,,,so you can`t miss this new work. I asked to my friend Catherine to create something to showcase it and here is the gorgeus work she did,,,,wowww,woww,

A Charming Lady...

Picts Included in my Sheet

I had to enter the challenge with Live and Love Crafts... First, because I love their products and it would be fantastic to win a voucher (lol) and then because I found their sketch rather interesting... There is quite a lot of layers, and it makes my card quite busy but I hope you will like it... Here is the card...

And here is the sketch...

Recipe : Papers from Prima (" Collection) - Image from Nicecrane Designs ("Henry Hutt's Women" Set) - Flowers : Dies from Creata - Leaves : Die from Crealies - Butterfly : The die was free with a magazine - The lace was dyed in a cup of tea !

Florence was also working with stunning sheet and she mixed these vintage ladies with Steampunk Theme,,,to get a really so unnusal and all over so fascinating cards,,,,,,,, you are Rock Florence

For my first project I have gone for a vintage steampunk theme.

I had lots of fun making this card. I used Nicecrane Designs digital images* of the Henry Hutt’s Ladies and the steampunk (fobwatch shape) dial. I also used a french themed embossing folder for one of the layers which I love!! The rest of the layers are just made up of scrap bits and bobs. All I did was layer the pieces up into a collage. I did distress the lady image with some DIs to tone down the colour and added a shabby flower and berry pins to her hat.

This is my second card – Vintage Lace

Please click on photo to enlarge

I used the same Nicecrane Designs digital image sheet*. I collected all of my pieces of paper and embellishments and then just assembled the card layer by layer starting at the bottom

Just to share – Tip for attaching ribbon: I attached the ribbon to a thin piece of card first before I attached it to the backing paper. I just glued the ends of the ribbon to a strip of card of the same length. I then attached the whole piece to the backing paper by just gluing the ends of the card to the underneath of the paper. This keeps the ribbon flat and has a neat fold over at each end. When I had attached the ribbon piece to the backing paper, just at both ends, I stapled the ribbon centrally, through the ribbon card and backing sheet, this holds it nicely in place to add embellishments to. The staple is then hidden by the flowers.

Just to share – Handmade flowers: I made some flowers out of some pretty papers. I saw a utube video by Sherry Cheever……I am never buying paper flowers again!!!

How I made my flowers : I cut out my flowers from the paper using a die and brushed the shapes both sides with water using a small paint brush. I then scrunched them as per the video (link above). Now then, this was the funny part. When I dried them with the heat gun the flowers wrinkled slightly. This gave a nice effect but made me think that the paper may possibly have some sort of synthetic fibre in it. Please be careful if you do this and your paper shows sign of wrinkling or shrinkage. I wouldn’t want anyone inhaling nasties.

These are to the digital images sheets I used. please click on image for more info.
