Meadow Sweet Card

Hello ...

Today I would like to share a card made using the Meadow Sweet Collection.  The patterns in this collection work really well with this design.  Here I have used the 6 x 6" Patterned Papers as the smaller print doesn't over power the design of the card.

6 x 6" Card Blank
Framelits Dies - Square 
Corner Punch 

1.  Layer the wooden effect paper onto the card blank.
2.  Die cut 4 larger squares from various papers and 4 smaller squares from the same papers.
3.  Punch opposite corners to round them.  Layer the large and small squares together.
4.  Place a corner of each square into the centre of the card and repeat with all our squares.
5.  Add an embellishment to the centre.

This is a perfect card for using up those left over papers in your pad.  If required you could add another layer.  This would also work well with all of our collections.

Until next week ...

A Candy Layout with flowers

Today I am sharing a 6 x 8" layout, my current favourite size.

I used the Candy 6 x 6" paper pad to trim the strips of paper at the bottom and then the plain paper included.

Using my Sizzix Big Shot I die cut the Be happy - from the Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 3pk Happiness Phrases - directly on the white 6 x 8 card. One of the reason i love this size of pages is because at the narrow side is only 6" so I can die cut in using just the standard Big Shot.
Then I glued from the back the plain paper.

The heart border is from another die set  660472 Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 2PK - Decorative Trim.

I hope you like it!

The Handmade Fair - Make & Take

Hello ...

So with the Handmade Fair only days away there has been a lot of preparation going on for Craft Asylum.

This year I will be holding the makes & takes giving people an opportunity to come see and feel all of the gorgeous Craft Asylum products.

For those of you lucky enough to be attending we would love to see you.  Come and stop by, say hello and participate in our wonderful make and take where you can make this cute pinwheel made from the Home Sweet Home Collection.

The project has been designed so that you can take away the skills you learn and use them in home decor, party decoration and all your papercrafting  projects.

It really would be wonderful to see you there and if you can't make it I will be back next week with some photographs to share.

An autumm card

Today I am sharing this card which I think is good for the end of summer and beginning of autumn.

I used the following Craft Asylum products: 

 First I die cut several times out of different greens the Do What You Love die. I trimmed the elements to create individual branches.

I layered them and glue them to the card. Then I die cut the flower and layer it on the card.
I then stamped the message using black ink.

Finally I sprayed yellow and green plain colour inks.

I hope you like it!
