Smile ...and Pretty Paper Talk!

Hello friends,
A 'smile' card as it's Monday and probably the most gloomy day of the week! 
This is one of my 'quick make' cards featured in this month's edition of 
Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine,
it features panels of vertical paper (Pebbles Inc - Country Picnic Collection),
Rose Creations and Class Scallop Oval die templates.
It's a great way of using up paper scraps,
I keep looking for ways to use up my odds and ends of pretty paper.
Talking of pretty paper..do you have an absolute favourite collection?  
A design that you have to keep buying over and over and use as much as possible?? 
Mine is Cosmo Cricket Odds and Ends and truly down to this design....
I adore the little flowers and polka dots - I couldn't get enough of it - probably why I used it on this...
and this...
and this...
and this....
oh..and this...
I think you get the idea! 
I have one sheet left and I really do not want cut into it - silly isn't it!  
Happy Monday friends - I'm back tomorrow.
Take care,

All beautiful projects today Christine. I especially like the reminders one, it would make a lovely gift and I would love to know how it was done. I can see why you like the papers too, they are so versatile. Hope work goes well today.

Hi Christine
love your card very pretty, and I"m not surprised that you love the Cosmo Cricket paper "Odds & Ends" (hope they still do it) as I am JUST going to have to get some lol, love ALL your projects that you have made with it.

Love that Cosmo Cricket paper- I could just look at it. It's very hard to find.

So pretty these cards Christine, I understand your need to keep your last sheet, as I too cannot use some of mine, and find that I look through them for a project then return them to the box as I can't bear to cut into them.

Love the card Christine and I can totally understand your love of the two beautiful Cosmo Cricket papers. I had a set of papers like that but they were a download I purchased so luckily I can reprint anytime I like!
Hope you are having a good day. Linda x

Hi Christine, your projects are just gorgeous, especially the reminder piece. My favourite papers are BoBunny and also Kaisercraft (lots of butterflies!), I always try to keep one piece back - just in case.....

Lucy said...

I'm loving all your creations today, Christine, but that first card just cried out "Spring" to me. I'm always looking for ways to use of bits and pieces. These will be perfect.
