My year in cards.....

Well, how was it for you? I've had a lovely Christmas, a very quiet 'big day' then a whirlwind trip down to London to see the family. Time to get back to the desk now to finish some outstanding projects with a looming deadline, and putting my thinking cap on about the next project which needs to be done and dusted by the end of next week....

But I have been browsing around on here to pick out my favourite cards of the year to show you. They are favourites for various reasons, some of them are examples of my crafting journey through the year, new techniques, new equipment, cards that finally came together in a pleasing way after a lot of wasted paper and slightly blue air around the crafty cupboard....


This first one was the first card I made with my brand new Silhouette Cameo, I still haven't explored that machine fully, I seem to have been busy all year


I finally got back to being productive after a bad bout of flu, so I have chosen two cards for this month.....

Another Silhouette card, this time using all white cuts that I coloured with ProMarkers. This one was for the Letraset blog

sparemagazine 038

and using Memory box dies......


and this one was for Polkadoodles. I liked the colours on this one.... 

and a gift box I made for Craftwork Cards


One of my faves, I like the clean and simple and quite graphic look

and this next one using border embossing punches took me forever! I knew what I was aiming for but it just didn't click, until, bingo this card appeared!

That's enough of my old stuff for now, I'll be back with more tomorrow. If you have done a review of your cards on your blog, let me know and I will pop over to see you.  Don't forget if you didn't have time to drop in over the holiday that there are ProMarkers up for grabs if you scroll down to the previous post and leave a comment there

  15. Fabulous set of cards!! hard to pick a fav

  16. Seeing your post made me take another look at my own cards. i may not have created as many as I would have liked, I did try some new approaches and techniques and I think I learned quite a bit along the way. I'm finding myself more and more drawn towards CAS designs, which is why Your CAS and graphic telephone card stands out to me. Also love the bold colours of this card.

  17. What a great selection of cards. It's fun to take a look back on old favs ... especially a collection of such lovely ones. It's nice to see your comments too, as it's fun to see the reasons why these are special favs for you.


I love reading your comments, thank you for taking the time
