huge demand for cards this week!

March is one of my busiest months for birthdays, and my Mum's birthday is also always very close to Mothering Sunday, so this week I needed LoTs of cards!  I've had a very nasty cough and although I could do bits and pieces of arty stuff, they were little bits at a time ...

 ... so I decided to scan some of my journal pages and use them to create some cards :)

I added a stamped 'happy birthday' greeting and re-highlighted the gold accents from the journal page.  On the back of each card I added a punched heart alongside my 'created by' stamp.

This next card is from a journal page that features a crocheted flower (apologies for the lighting in the next two photos!)...

... so I added another real crochet flower to the card, laying it over the scanned image, as well as stamping a birthday greeting and adding some punched hydrangeas and tiny pearls.

 My third card was for my Mum, who loves this journal page so I scanned it ...

 ...and added some stickles glitter glue on the fairy wings.

 My sister asked me to make a card for her to give Mum on Mother's Day so I had to make sure both cards were quite different.

 They do both feature free machining though ;)  I raided my scraps box to create both cards and used a dried out baby wipe (from art journaling) to create the heart on my card...

...and made a flowery card for my sister to give Mum as she's a gardening type!  She writes beautifully too and I love reading her blog 'Living a life of Flavour.

I have loads to share as I have been absent from this blog for too long!  More to come later in the week.  Thanks so much for visiting :)


  1. What a fab idea scanning your pages in for some batch card making, need to try that one. Love the last 2 as well with the strip of colour and I'm a pushover for a touch of free motion stitching. Hope you're feeling better.
