Hi Everyone, Beck Beattie today with a sweet card I created using the florals, doilies and Bella! New York Paperz. I really wanted to contrast the grey pattern in the paper and while florals with some pops of colour and fun.
It's almost Mother's Day, so I have been busy creating some pretty cards to celebrate. Both of these were made using the Faded Empire range. I really love the colours and patterns in these papers.
With Valentine's Day now past, it is time to start looking to Easter. I have been wanting to do a hot air balloon for ages, (well another one, this is my second, but in a different style). I was inspired by Teresa Horner's recent post where she created an Easter banner for her mantle. She used the pastel colours of the Hearts and Stripes range, which made me think of all things fresh and new which of course is the epitome of Easter.
This week I thought I would try something a little different. I decided to make some tags instead of cards. The more I thought about what I wanted to include on them, the more I realised that it was time to go big. These are not your everyday gift tags. They are each 9 inches tall and 4 inches wide.
It's Valentine's Day and while we really don't celebrate it in schools back in Australia, they sure do here in the States! This year will be my first time in class on this holiday so I couldn't resist making something a little bit cute for it. I like to give my kids an opportunity to write notes if they want to report something to me, or just want to chat but don't want to do it out loud. So this will stay on my desk even after Valentines day.
