I am here with a birthday card that I needed to make and I could not wait to play with the Karen Burniston Tag Book Pop up die set and the Cat & Dog set (although I only made the cat in this instance). Seems to be too long between cardmaking sessions and the dark and cold sometimes keep me out of the shed, but once I am in there I can hope to get the creative juices going.
I do have to mention the Tag Book is currently out of stock at Crafts U Love but it will be back, so sign up for product notifications on this item so you don't miss out on this item again as it flew out the first time.

Today its Paper Pro's Challenge again and this months challenge is Winter Birthday card Karen Aicken Painted MtnCards.
I left it a bit late (as usual) and had a bit of a Mojo block, so I went real simple, and sometimes simple is good.

This months theme was Holiday Cards and I decided it was about time I played with the Karen Burniston House & Fence Pop up. I teamed it up with a few other elements from the Holiday Charms. (I will link below)

Yesterday I made my first sleepy squirrel. I followed a video tutorial by serafina fibre art. Mid way through project I hit the "oh no it's rubbish" stage which most of my felties reach. But I carried on and pleased to say I was happy at the end.
I love this craft. Just need more time! It's very frustrating ATM.
Today I'm here with last weeks Create and Take. I used the Elizabeth Craft Designs Bugs and Butterflies clear stamp set and the Marianne Designs Heart Embossing Folder.

I have been having an amazing time playing, learning and generally collecting and loving the fluff!
Below I will show off some of my recent makes and I warn you there might be quiet a few! This is not replacing my Paper Crafting, and I do hope I don't loose too many likers, but hey, I might gain a few too.
Anyone want to get into Needle Felting I would Highly recommend a company called The Makerss at www.themakerss.co.uk Their range of Wool and accessories are fabulous, they are friendly and fast. I only share this information as when you start a new hobby it can be hard to know where to start, and yes you make the wrong choices along the way, but I truely think with The Makerss you will miss this out and just get the best.
Type in CAZ10 for a super duper 10% off, this is my own "Friends of Caz" code, how lucky am I? :)
Its been a long time! I apologise for that, I have been busy and making the card for work, I have been needle felting and making Pop up cards for my classes coming up at Crafts U Love but just not posted on here.
Whilst my time with the Karen Burniston Design team has ended, I am still part of the Paper Pros team, which is a group of crafters who met on the Karen Burniston DT, we love her designs, and whilst using her dies as a starter point, we are of course allowed to add in anything we want as its a "Just for Fun" challenge.
That said, I did in fact only use Karen's new collection for this card. The theme was HALLOWEEN and I was dying to play with the new designs.

Today I am back with another card from demo. The boys have stolen the mouse off the PC so trying to post this post from my phone. So I'll keep it short and cross my fingers it actually works.
On the front I made use of the flags that come with the twist panel set and added wording from the words set, keeping the front simple as a leaf into the main display on the inside.
Inside I used the adorable animals and also so of the birthday charms and the cupcake too.
Apologies its short and not linking directly, I'll have to sort a mouse out soon.

This first card shows off the Charm Accordion Die, and this card has been made with a single base cut to create the main card. It makes the most adorable small card, which you can add further pages to to create much longer ones.

Paper Pros challenges are a group of crafty friends, (formerly Karen Burniston's Design Team) who decided that even though we disbanded the old Design Team we wanted to challenge each other and to get creating. They are no pressure, join in if you want to, and whilst I do try and join in, last month with Caiden leaving primary school it was just too hard so I missed out.
Here is my card for this month and I am using the Katherine Label Pop up die for the card and the MFT Sow Much Cuteness stamp set.
