Friday Feature - Christmas Printable Pages


It's been another bad week in New South Wales, with dreadful bush fires in many areas.  The Blue Mountains, a beautiful area on the outer border of Sydney has once again been badly affected, with huge areas burnt out and homes lost.  Fire fighters, lots of them volunteers,  have been drafted into the state from around Australia and they are doing an amazing job.

In our area we've had plenty of smoke from the mid north coast fires but that's it, thankfully!
I'm thinking about all my crafting friends in the fire affected areas, be prepared and stay safe. I'm praying for rain!!!

Now on with today's post:

I'm here today with AnnaBelle Stamps Friday Feature and this week we want to share with you the new Christmas Printable Pages 1 & 2.  These come with a mixture of images plus images and sentiments as well as tags.........In fact everything you'll need to whip up your Christmas stationary needs.

I've made a group of four cards using Christmas Printable's 1, images with a sentiment.
Printing these images to one sheet of A4 card before trimming to size. 
I 've added a little sparkle here and there with a Sakura Gelly Roll pen.
AnnaBelle Stamps ribbons, twine and buttons add the embellishments.

Check in with the Belles for more inspiration this week.
Thanks for calling past :)

Susan's Garden - Daisies

Today I'm sharing a card made using products from Scrapbook Boutique.  Three sets of dies used to make this card one of them being the pretty Mini Daisy from Susan's Garden which, was great to play with. My crafting friend Selma shares the most amazing cards and projects made using these dies over on her blog...... I had to try them.

If you like floral cards you should give these dies a try, the results are well worth it.  Evelyn is sharing how I put this one together over on the Scrapbook Boutique Blog today and I've added the product list below.

Sentimental Bluebells - FF019

It's Feature Friday at AnnaBelle Stamps and this week we're featuring 
Sentimental Bluebells.

I remember going into the countryside picking arms full of these beautiful flowers when I was young....
Such a shame really, as they  look perfect in a woodland setting and last much longer :).

For my card I've made a get well soon message to send to a friend adding some pretty dp as well as ABS satin ribbon and a Waterfall Sprinkle. The Bluebells were coloured using Copic Markers.

Check in with the Belles for more inspirational cards using this pretty set.

  • The base card is purple as are the die cut stars.  
  • A Copic marker coloured the white seam binding to match the orange perfectly and this is tied to a knot over the left side.  
  • Double cutting the large star gave me the open centre and I also cut two of the smallest stars from MFT Die-namics Star Stax.  
  • Another Die-namics die was used to cut the letters.  
  • The very superior looking cats are from  a clear set by Stanpendous called French Flower Cart. 
  •  These too were coloured with Copic markers.

Cherry Blossom - AC172

This is my second post today, scroll down for Uniko Studio Washi..........:)

It's time for AnnaBelle's Monthly sketch challenge for October.  Join in for your chance to win a shopping credit for the ABS store.

I've flipped the sketch and used AnnaBelle's Clear set, Cherry Blossom for todays card. Such a pretty image to colour with Copic markers.  Some silver Sprinkles either side of the sentiment to add some bling.
I also used my spray inks and a mask to create the background for this card.  I wish you could see the pretty sparkle these inks add to the background :)

Check in with the girls for more inspiration this month. 
Have a great week end :)
