UK Paper Pack Obsession

Hello and Welcome!

It’s been so long I don’t even know what to say!  Time is so fluid and passes by so quickly.  Many things have been happening lately some sad others good that I haven’t been creating much and honestly my energy level has been put to the test.  Never mind my creative “mojo” has been in a block for quite a while.

The good news is that I think is coming back slowly but surely!  I just need to make time and let the stress and sadness be washed away!  So we can start by showing some pictures of cards a made a couple of months ago and did not get a chance to post.

These cards were all created using a paper pack that came as a freebie on one of those great UK magazines you see at Joann’s or Barnes and Nobles.  Honestly I bought this quite a few months ago and just got around to using it recently.

I find they are great for beginners and when you are having a hard time coming up with creative ideas.  All the paper and stamps coordinates and by adding a couple of other embellishments you can create an assortment of very cards for your stash.

For the following card I embossed the card stock with an embossing folder by Darice to add texture and background to what otherwise would have been just plain white card stock.

For the following card I used the butterfly stamp and colored withe Tombow markers and then used my Spectrum Noir glitter brush to add a little shimmer.

Here are the rest of the cards made by just coordinating the patter and the tags and papers all came in the kit.

 

One final note I draw inspiration from the booklet that came with the papers as well as just laying out the elements until I had a layout I liked.

Well hope to come back soon now that the groove is back and I hope you got some inspiration from my crafty journey.  As I tell myself often, “Nourish your mind and soul with some creative adventures.”

Take care
