It's two for the price of one today!!  Both of these cards have been made by Colette, using the Gorjuss A4 Decoupage - 'The Pretend Friend'.  I think you will agree, they really are gorgeous!!!

Products used - 6x6 Cream Scalloped Card Blank, Gorjuss A4 Decoupage Pack - The Pretend Friend, Gorjuss Patterned Craft Tape, Gorjuss Large Buttons, and Gorjuss Ribbon.

Products used - Gorjuss A4 Decoupage Pack - The Pretend Friend (ribbon, image, fancy edge shape and heart are all recycled from the packaging), Gorjuss Patterned Craft TapeGorjuss Large Buttons, Tonic Geared Punch - Doily Border and Tonic Regular Boot Punch - Daisy.

The rosette has been made by cutting a strip of black card, and edging it with the Tonic Geared Punch - Doily Border and then folding it and shaping it in to the rosette.

Once again, some fantastic inspiration from Colette.

Forever Friends Kraft Notes - Lots of Love

This is another adorable card made by Colette, using the latest Forever Friends Kraft Notes collection.  This little teddy bear has really stood the test of time and continues to increase in popularity.

Products used - Forever Friends Kraft Notes A4 Decoupage - For You, Kraft Card and Hobby House Mulberry Flowers - Spearmint.

I love how Colette's cards are all so different.  There are rarely any that are just 'square' cards and her ideas are great!!

Enjoy having a go at some of these - I know I will!

Happy Crafting!

All Aboard - Best Places To See

This is the first of Colette's cards using the new Papermania All Aboard collection.  This is a great collection for documenting your travels, and it includes a scrapbook journaldie-cut postcards, travel labels, luggage tag dies and lots more.

Colette has cut a circle in the middle of the front of the card, and folded it back on itself.  Then, she has put a strip of acetate from top to bottom, and has stuck the aeroplane bookmark to the acetate to make it look like it is flying. How cool!

This is another of Colette's cards that I want to try!  I can see I'm going to be busy!!!

Pick of the Bunch Punch and Stamp Sets

These Punch and Stamp sets from Tonic Studios are fantastic, and there are some great projects over at the Tonic Studios Blog to really give you some inspiration and ideas.

Here is the first idea that I thought I'd share with you.   It was a post by the talented Ruth Hamilton who has ate, slept and drank these punches for the last few months, seeing as she was the designer of them!!!

These frilled roses look great, and if you go over to the Tonic Blog, you can see how to make them.  Simple, but very effective!!  Why not have a go for yourself...
