Decided to upload all of these little cheekies together. They are easy to work with and very popular. Cheekies images, papers and sentiments are all from the Pink Petticoat range.

Whenever I make a card I like to finish off the inside as well and as a final touch always try to do a matching envelope.

Mats, borders, coutouts and envelopes were cut using my Cricut Expressions and Design Studio.

Ooh la la!

Ooh la la! This is the last one of Lola Rose and Lilli for a while. Going to post other cards using some different images and papers from the Pink Petticoat range.

Too much of a good thing!

Too much of a good thing! Never! This is one of my favourite images from Pink Petticoat Paper and sentiment also from this range. Love the black and red!

Frames and mats were done with the Cricut Celebration cartridge.

If the shoe fits.....

Very cute image from Lola's Boudoir collection at Pink Petticoat. Papers also from this range. Love them!

Circle was cut using Cricut and the scallop on the card was done using the New Arrival cartridge.

Lifes too short for small diamonds!

Moved away from black for this one, tried navy and pink from the Pink Petticoat range. Nice combination!

Just 'cos I like you

I love dots especially big ones! Pink Petticoat have a great range. I have used some Sweet Cupcake downloads together with an image and sentiment 'Just 'cos I like you' from Lola Rose and Lilli.

Enjoy your day from Lilli

Stil from the Pink Petticoat range but not in the classic black and white that I have grown to love. Happy with the result though!

We can all twinkle

Papers for card and envelope, Lilli image and sentiment all from Pink Petticoat

Lola Rose again!

Again all from Pink Petticoat.

More Lola Rose and Lilli

I just love all the downloads from Pink Petticoat.

One card leads to another, and so on. It is always easier to make heaps while you are on the go and while you have the stuff out. You always seem to have scraps left over from each project and the mind keeps racing on how you can use it up to make the next card. On and on it goes!

All papers, image and sentiment from Pink Petticoat. Images from Lola Rose and Lilli range.

My first uploads

This year I came across the Pink Petticoat site. I have downloaded a variety of the papers and digital images and enjoy using them in my card designs.

I love black and white, sometimes with a touch of red, or lime green or any shade of pink.

I always feel my cards aren't complete unless I decorate the insides and compliment the card with an envelope to match.
The first image is of the outside of the card the second is the inside and the matching envelope.

Papers, image and sentiment are from Pink Petticoat.

My First Post

Since purchasing my Cricut Expression and Design Studio 12 months ago I have spent a lot of time making cards.

I thought it would be a good idea to start a blog so I can share some of my creations as I love checking out other cardmaker's blogs for inspiration.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas, sharing it with family and friends. Ours was very quiet, we spent it relaxing with our daughter, son-in-law and our gorgeous granddaughter. Our other son and his family spent Christmas in New Zealand with our daughter-in-laws family. We will catch up with them when they return to Australia in the new year. Can't wait!
