Hello loves!

Here I am on a dull, rainy Sunday. Typical weather for a British bank holiday. 

I'd like to show you another quick and easy card using the Simple Stories Mistletoe Kisses Collection.

This one uses only the die cut elements from the Bits & Pieces pack.

What you need...

Card stock: white
Printed die cuts: Mistletoe Kisses Bits & Pieces (#7429) - Simple Stories

What you do...

1 Create a top fold blank 8cm x 15cm in white card.

2 Arrange the lettering evenly across the bottom of the blank to spell 'believe' and stick in place.

3 Sit the Santa above the 'V'.

4 Add the blue heart above the 'I' and finish with a gem.

There you go, a quick and easy, cute card. Because the Santa sits well above the blank, this card will fit nicely into a C6 envelope. You may need to add a sheet of card into the envelope to stop the top of his hat getting bent in the post.

I still have a few more little cards made from this collection, so I will show them to you over the next few posts.

Thank you for popping by and I'll see you soon!

Sweet, Simple Merry & Bright

Afternoon peeps!

I'm back with another quick and easy make using one paper craft collection. It's been a mad couple of weeks for me getting more magazine commissions done before deadlines - eek!

Here is the cute little card, it is only A7 size (7.5cm x 10.5cm) which I think is perfect for children to make and give to their chums!

What you need...

Collection kit: Mistletoe Kisses 12 x 12 Collection Kit (#7400) - Simple Stories
Printed die cuts: Mistletoe Kissed Bits & Pieces (#7429) - Simple Stories

What you do...

1 Create a top fold white A7 blank and from the 3 x 4 Journaling Card Elements sheet (#7410) cut out the Merry & Bright panel.

2 Trim the panel to 7cm x 10cm and mat centrally onto the blank.

3 Take the holly and berry motif from the Bits & Pieces set and adhere to the holly at the top of the banner with foam pads. 

Ta da! You're done!

I love this collection and I think the colour scheme is adorable. Pinks, reds and aquas teamed up with the cutest images. 

There are 12 images on the journaling sheet so there are potentially 12 cards to be made. The only problem is that it is double sided, so you need to pick your favourite images...unless you buy another sheet (#7410).

Okay, so that is me for now. I'll be back soon with another make from this cute collection, until then ttfn!

Cute Bauble - Cricut® Explore Air

Hello lovelies!

I hope you are all well!

I've been having a play on my Cricut® Explore Air and one of my favourite collections is the Simply Charmed set. It is jam packed with the most adorable and cute characters.

I liked the colour scheme used on the images page, so I did the same. As I wanted to use bold black lettering, I added the black background to really make the image pop out.

What you need...

Images: Ornament (#M454BC) - Simply Charmed
Vinyl: black
Card stock: black, dark pink, light pink, red, grey, white

What you do...

1 Select the image and cut out in cardstock, assemble and fix to the top of a 10.5cm x 14.5cm blank.

2 Select a font and cut out in black vinyl, stick to the bottom of the blank.

Ta-da! Done. Another quick and simple card for Christmas. The beauty of a card like this is that you can cut out multiples in one fell swoop, then sit back with a cuppa and assemble.

He is adorable though (I'm certain that it is a 'he', it looks like a 'he'. :o)

I'll be back soon with some more makes using one paper collection, so until then, ta ta for now!
