Look what came in the post - this month's totally gorgeous pack from Craftwork Cards called Sweet Meadow
This is just up my street, I always love the colour combo of fresh green and pink, and of course in the monthly pack you get all sorts of goodies - tags, label shapes, buckles, sentiments just to name a few. A lot of you ask about Card Candi, they are the little round shapes you see in the foreground of the photo below - gorgeous little domed shapes of cardstock, available in every colour under the sun, none of the hassle of brads, just pop them on with a little foam pad. They are much, much cheaper than brads as well, you get hundreds (well, a lot) in a pack, I love them. They are available in the USA now as well if any of you want to try them - try Scrapbook.com
These are the first two cards I made, using nothing but one of the papers and some buttons and thread - I love that very narrow sentiment strip as well
For this second card, I wanted to add real buttons over the printed ones on the paper, and didn't have any in the right colours, so I punched two small holes in card candi, they look just like buttons, and add the dimension I was looking for. I cut a couple of the flowers out of another sheet and popped those on, bending the petals a bit to give some life to the flowers
As you read this, I will hopefully be on holiday in Spain. I am taking my laptop, so hope I can keep in touch while I am there, but I have scheduled posts that will pop up while I am away.
