look what i made today....

I recently found a tutorial on Camilla Ekman blog's on how to make these beautiful flowers and you will never guess what they are made of.... baby wipes! I kid you not!

Pretty amazing hey.. now mine aren't the prettiest, but for my first attempt I was pretty happy with the outcome, I got impatient waiting for things to dry completely as it was raining here today, I even went to the Hairdresser next door and borrowed a hair dryer to speed up the drying process (my heat gun was way to hot). I think the flowers got better as I went along!

My photos were taken with my iphone as I left my camera at home, so they aren't the greatest photos.

Anyway, I will use these on some projects and I will take some photos of them and post them in a few days.

Happy Birthday Timmy..

This was a Birthday Card I made in a hurry for Anthony's older brother Tim, a few weeks ago.
I am forever getting the date wrong, I thought I had until the 15th but no such luck (you'd think after 11 years I would remember, maybe I should check the calender!) Anyway I quickly put this easel card together for him.

I used a Digital Image from Mo Manning called Strong Man and I printed him onto XPress It Copic Cardstock and I coloured him in with Copic Markers. (I should have made his skin tone a bit darker, he looks very pale in these photos)
The papers are from a 6x6 Basic Grey Paper Pad Life of the Party and Textured Cardstock.

There not the best photos as I quickly snapped them before we sent it!

Thanks...Jules x

Other Creations in Paper...

Over the last few weeks I have been experimenting with other Creations in Paper items and products. With a name like this there are many possibilities that I am able to explore, not just cardmaking and scrapbooking!

Over the past few months I keep seeing a few similar items poping up in Wedding and Home Decorating Magazines and Websites that I thought were very interesting!

After a bit of research and fiddling, here are my end results!

Tissue Paper Pom Poms and Flowers made from Gift Wrapping Paper:

(sorry not the greatest photo's but you can view these in store)

Crete Paper Rose Ball:

Trust me, this Crete Paper Rose Ball looks beautiful when finished and would be great for weddings, but maybe don't use the largest ball you can find for your first attempt! If you want to use them for table display's, go smaller!

I love the look of this but it took me in total about 1 1/2 days to complete it as each flower is hand made and my flowers were of a small/medium size.
After I finished it, another thought I had was to use pre made paper flowers that you can get these days, just cut off the stems and glue on! Might cost a bit more in $ but depends of how much time you have and how many you want/have to make!

Anyway, looks very pretty !
