Welcome back to another RemARKable Blog Hop with all these super talented people. Today we’re saying “Out with the Old and in with the New”. So my project has something from the Holiday Catalogue (which is carrying over), something from the new Occasions (Spring in the USA) Catalogue and something from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue as well as a couple of items from the Annual Catalogue. See if you can tell which one is which before I tell you. I just… Read more »

My goodness didn’t 2016 fly and as we head closer to the new year the Latte Girls Blog Hop this week is themed ‘Cheers’. I decided on a party theme as you always have plenty of cheers at a party, don’t you? After you’ve had a few ‘cheers’ you party on right? So here’s cheers to you all and wishing you all a very Happy New Year and share our love of paper crafting together. Make sure you visit Leonie… Read more »

This was a lovely card designed by Barbara Laine, one of the Latte Girls Team. We made this card at our last Team Meeting as a Make and Take. It would make a lovely card to make at a workshop. This would make a lovely card for many celebrations – birthday, Valentine’s Day, Engagement, Wedding etc. Changing the colour and adding other embellishments available in the Occasions Catalogue would also change the card. It was quite easy to make with… Read more »

Now here’s the card without the spritzing and no layers. An easy card to use as a Make and Take at a workshop. This set teams nicely with Awesomely Artistic and I used the dragonfly from that set to stamp inside the card and on the front and… Read more »

This week the Latte Girls are looking at flowers. I just love flowers, well all the ones which don’t make me sneeze or itch. Some are just glorious from afar and all make me smile and smiling is good for the soul and it confuses other people. Anyway enough of that and onto today’s projects: I just love the Detailed Floral Thinlit Dies which I combined with stamps from the photopolymer stamp set Mixed Borders to make my projects today….

I CASEd this card from Kelly Kent and it’s a different way of using the Star of Light Photopolymer Stamp Set. I’ve used Copper Foil and Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I’ve used the Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder on the outside of the envelope (just the bottom left at the front) and the inside of the card. I always cut an extra piece of Whisper White card for the inside and stamp on it with an image. Now if you have… Read more »
