A craft afternoon

First of all sorry Sandra I promise not to do any crafting tomorrow ok? lol

I have had a lovely afternoon playing about with mists and texture and finishing my Carousel dlo. First up my father's day card for my Dad it is a fairly simple card he isn't into fussy things;

I decided to try the playalong with scrapfactor on UKS and did week 9 which was texture and week 10 which was to use no pp.

The week 9 LO is of my hubby just after we got engaged the card and papers were sanded and one was embossed to create texture and I used a rub on, metal, pearls and ribbons and fibres all with different textures. The journalling is hidden as it is a little private to be sharing on here lol;

The week 10 LO is of my DD when she was a bridesmaid I stamped the card multiple times with a background stamp using my large 3 coloured Brilliance ink pad. I misted some white card with csmic shimmer candy pink and then stamped on it in silver with a large butterfly stamp. I also stamped a flower onto some more white card in different colours. I finished it off with some faux doilies made using a medallion stamp and lots of flowers, gems and glitter for my very girly girl (dunno where she gets that from!);

Finally here is the other half of my Carousel DLO and a pic of both pages together (the first page can be seen 2 posts down) The journalling is also hidden on this one the half bracket sticking out the top pulls a card out from behind the pp with the journalling on. I really love this DLO and wish the weather had been nicer so I could have got a better photo it looks so much nicer and more colourful irl;

Thanks for popping by hope you are enjoying your weekend ttfn x


  1. Step away from the craft desk missy! Lol ... Ok, ok you can do more, especially as they're so gorgeous.

  2. Love that carousel LO, it works so well as a double LO - the mutliple photos tell the story so well and the embellishments have a jazzy carnival feel to them :-)
