Card making...

15 November 2008

to be honest... I'm not much of a card maker..... but I LOVE receiving a handmade card.... and with that in mind ....Ive been making an attempt to create them more often.

Now my cards are not fancy.....more of a collection of scraps... made pretty with a flower... a journal spot and a little rub-on sentiment.... or something similar.

Kaisercraft have the most wonderful rub-on collection....their rub-ons are great quality...and I particularly love that they have sentiment rub-ons...perfect for cardmaking.....I have particularly loved these.

I also love to add a journal spot....somewhere for the sentiment to go.... and these would be my favourites...

Yvettes journal spots...

Recognise this layout? was a step by step layout in a recent copy of creating keepsakes magazine. It was fun to just follow the steps....and watch the layout evolve... more Kaisercraft on this one....the papers and a journal spot rub-on.


  1. i'm not a great card maker either mardi, i love how you've used scraps and your usual bright mix of pp's often not matching but perfect together. special photo of Alex and Anna Bella.

  2. What do you mean that you're not much of a card maker?! I love them! So super-cute and so you! That's something I need to make some time for... I haven't even thought about xmas cards yet!

    Gorgeous layout Mardi! I still can't believe how amazing Alex looks in that photo so soon after the birth.

    Hope you've had a wonderful weekend!
