Doodlebug Black & White Cards

Hi, I thought I would share some cards we did this week in a class using the lovely Doodlebug Black & White Wedding papers.
This first couple I found the design while searching the net, sorry cannot remember where I got
I used the white divine on one and the black paisley on the other.
Also used bazzill cardstock, Cuttlebug tag team - textile hearts to make the heart on the front. The other hearts are made using EK folk heart punches.
The stamps are Adorn-it and the ink is Stazon Black.

I think these would make awesome Wedding Invitations.
If you would like the instructions, please leave me a message in the comments and I will get them to you.
This next card, using the same range, it is the black divine this time.
The punched edge was made using a Fiskars Lace border punch.
The red on the front is Bazzill run through the Cuttlebug swirls embossing bolder.
The flower is made up from white bazzil stamped with the new Delish Script stamp (I love this stamp), then punched out with the extra large EK Retro Daisy Punch. This punch is awesome, so many uses. The other paper is from the same range also punched with the Retro punch. With a red material flower and brad to finish off with.
Under the punched lace edge I have placed a strip of 3/4" black velvet ribbon.

Thanks for looking.

Kaiser clear mini album

Hi, and how is your weekend shaping up so far??? I have a little mini album to show you that I completed last weekend at the CPC retreat. Marg gave us some directions to start, then we were left to our own creative this is what I came up with. I made it for my 9 year old daughter, hence the bright and very girly colours, which she just loves.

The first thing you need to do, is paint all of the edges on both sides, in your chosen paint colour. You then need to work out your photo placement and size, then cut the photo's to the exact same size so that they line up on either side of the acrylic pieces. You can then stick your photos on, we used a glue stick, and from there you can just go crazy with rub-ons, flowers, stickers, bling and any other things you can think of. For my album I've used the gorgeous Basic Grey Urban Prairie papers, Kaiser rubons, Carolee's and Thickers letters, and loads of other bits from my stash. It was such a fun and reasonably quick project to do, I'm already thinking of my next one. Marg has a few different shapes in stock, so go check it out, and have a go yourself. Bye for now.
