Today was the first of my Facebook Live streams that I am calling Masculine Mondays, my plan is to make a masculine project live at 10am every Monday morning ( Eastern Australia Daylight Savings time). Masculine Cards and projects seem to be something that many people struggle with so I hope I can share some ideas and inspiration.
I realise that many people are unable or unwilling to get out to cardmaking and scrapbooking classes right now, so I will be sharing more online.
I would love to go live on my YouTube channel but I need 50 followers there first, so jump on and subscribe to my channel, get your friends to as well, and then I will be able to share more with you on YouTube.
In the meantime, here is the link to this morning’s Facebook live.
And here is the card, featuring the Meadow Dies and Cork Speciality Paper.
The colours I have used are Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie, and Very Vanilla, and the label is from the Tasteful Labels Dies. Here is a link to order the gorgeous Meadow Dies from my online store so that you can create this card.
My son started learning to sail a few years ago, and loved it straight away. He’s a natural and sailing is the highlight of his week. So every Saturday we head to the nearest lake where the club get together for some races, or sometimes just a friendly sail.
Today wasn’t the best weather for it, in fact we’ve had a few weeks in a row where it’s been cold, raining and very windy, and today was no exception! But they go out anyway.
Needless to say, I don’t get any time for crafting in a Saturday, although sometimes I take some crochet to do.
But I will share a quick and easy card that I made using the BlackBerry Beauty Ephemera Pack.
The card uses just four elements from the Ephemera Pack with some of the matching Designer Series Paper behind them. Cardmaking couldn’t get any easier than that!!
I did a Livestream on my Facebook page this morning, featuring the Whimsy and Wonder Designer Series Paper, to make quick, easy and gorgeous Christmas cards, and to show that you really don’t need to spend a lot of money in order to get going and make some homemade Christmas cards.
These first three cards use exactly the same layout, with different patterns from the same pack of DSP.
I also showed this same layout using a completely different DSP to create a bright and cheerful birthday card, using the Host DSP Pattern Party.
And a couple of different layouts using Whimsy and Wonder DSP.
They were fun to make, and now I have a bigger stash to sell at the markets this week!!
