Balloon Box Card

Hi all,

I have this very fun and cute card up over on the Papermilldirect blog, to celebrate a little girls first birthday. It is very dimensional but deceptively simple to make! I used lots of Papermilldirect products on it and made it sparkle and shine. Head on over to the blog for more details!

I love the fun balloons on this card, who doesn’t love cake and balloons on their birthday?


Giraffe Baby Card

Hi All,

I have this fun and cute card up on the Papermilldirect blog today, sharing a fun technique – negative die cutting. I love this technique for making really simple but elegant cards. I left this card really clean and simple and resisted the urge to add any enamel dots, sequins etc, I just wanted the giraffe and sentiment to be the key focus. There is a lot of foam tape on the card so the giraffe really pops on the card, so it really stands out in real life!You can head over to the Papermilldirect blog to see the super simple way I constructed this card with step by step photos.

It was a super fun card to make, and the birthday boy – well he was entertained, a little bit 😀

Stained Glass Effect Card

Hi All,

Just stopping by to share a very fun project that takes a stamp and the simple technique of paper piecing and combines them to give a very cool paper piecing effect. I used a fantastic Woodware stamp stocked by Papermilldirect and of course lots of Papermilldirect card to pull it all together. Head over to the Papermilldirect blog to see a full tutorial on this card and how I made it. While you are there check out their cool crafty competition too with a fabulous Papermilldirect prize!

Under the Sea Card

Hi All,

I love making cards that are a little bit outside the box, and this one was one of those. The challenge was to use an image designed to be an under the sea image – but I had no other images to go with it. So what was I to do? Well use some cutting files to make a boat and have the scuba diver image swim past the boat windows! All the details on this one and some step by steps are over on the Papermilldirect blog, so head on over to check it out in more detail.
