Travel through time to 2012

'Travel through time to 2012' is the title of Rainbow lady 186 this week, so I thought this Kanban picture might fit the bill.

I've also used the neutral colours from For your inspiration 21:

Shades of blue and green

The card used to wrap around the sticky notes (yes, it's another sticky notes holder) was recycled from the covering of a stationery set (a William Morris design). The flowers are from stash.

Colours are for the play date cafe 113:

Reminiscent of a bygone era

The papers I've used for this card are from the Papermania Persimmon collection 'reminiscent of a bygone era' - hence the title of this blogpost.

This card is for Annabelle ABSC045 sketch:


It features spots and stripes for the current Daring cardmakers challenge (there was an extra week for this challenge, but I'm still submitting an entry on the final evening!).

The scalloped circles were cut with nesties, edges distressed with stormy sky DI and the white shape stamped with part of the Penny Black sparklers stamp inked with stormy sky and clear heat embossed. Just the addition of a strip of flowers and a few half pearls from Hobbycraft.

This is also for:

Some odd girls: bling me - at least 2 types of bling - heat embossing and half pearls
Paper creations ink 16: die cuts and/or punches
Paper sundaes 101: something old, something new - papers are new, nesties are old
Fab n funky 102: something new - the papers

Somewhere to scrawl

This is a sticky notes holder made with an offcut of black and white hearts card (scored and folded to hold sticky notes) with the addition of the 'notebook' topper.

The colour scheme is for:


Create me pink 6: colour splash - black and white with only 1 other colour - just a splash
The paper variety:

What a hoot!

For Shabby tea room 95 'time flies' there is an inspirational photo:


and the project also needs to feature something with wings - so I've gone with the 'owl' theme.

So I altered his notebook, using a piece of wallpaper sample for the background and a Dawn Bibby die cut owl image:

Suzie's 365 5: excitement

To the non-crafter, this won't look much as if it depicts excitement, but I'm sure that fellow crafters will agree that it's exciting when the postie brings goodies. Today's package is rather functional, but I still think it's exciting (yes, I know, I need to get out more - lol!) because I really love my copics.
