An afternoon with friends

Thanks for a lovely afternoon Stacey, Judy, Jean and Ali. Caitlyn loved having a swim.
It was wonderful meeting your lovely mum Stacey and i'm still giggling at Ali telling us about her work call..... OMG!!! 


This is such a nice photo of the two of us Stacey, my favourite so far!



Not quite sure what Ali was doing? But Judy looks ready to catch her!


A great shot of Stacey and her mum Judy who is visiting from the UK.


Me and Jean.


Jonathon, Charlotte, Trinity and Caitlyn.


The kids cooling down.

playing around

I've been playing around with some new supplies, I think the new feather stamps/dies might be my new favourite.

one die, two cards

It's always good to use those more specialized dies in new and different ways but while making a wedding card a friend asked me to make her a simple card for a same sex wedding. Hmmmm, I haven't had that request before but hey, I was up for the challenge!

So these are the two cards I completed using the same Cheery Lynn die.
The light is not that great on the first image image,



So easy! I just trimmed the bride away, cut another groom and used the reverse side so that both grooms were facing each other. No extras were required except for the sentiment so this was simple.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

leftovers into cards

Today I couldn't join my crafty friends for all day craft day so instead I created at home. I have a container that has been accumulating leftover stamped & diecut goodies throughout last year so I challenged myself to only use items on my cards from this container.


I created some pre stamped & embossed cards as bases and used a pile of pre stamped and cut flowers (All Stampin Up) and a pile of leftover greenery.




My container has now got a lot more room and I created nine cards.
Not a bad effort in one day aye girls? See you all on Thursday :-)

Die Cut Sentiments

Have you tried using diecut sentiments on your cards? My favourite sentiments are available in dies produced by Cheery Lynn Designs. These super slim steel cutting dies are finely detailed but very robust and can be used in most die cutting machines. I use mine in my Cuttlebug & Grand Calibur. I also love the way that the diecut ejects from Cheery Lynn dies much easier than a lot of other brands of dies....That has to be a bonus!
You can view the sentiments dies we currently stock HERE

Stippled Blossoms stamps & Square Lattice embossing folder (Stampin Up), Cheery Lynn Hello die, Cheery Lynn Happy Birthday Dies, Spellbinders Elegant Labels 4.and a Martha Stewart Border Punch.

For anon-e-mouse

Hello and Happy New Year!
It's been a while since I last posted and I have been enjoying a self imposed break from blogging.

I recently had a comment posted which I thought I had better reply to...

Dear creative options, as much as I LOVE this card on your blog,(and I do!) I think it is time for a new one!
Is there a chance that you could make one using a new die? or even using some of the flower-builder dies?
Many thanks.
anon-e-mouse! xx"

Thank you anon-e-mouse for your comment ( and for joining us for coffee today....heehee )
Please find attached the two cards that I recently finished. My take on your card has finally been done and I promise to create a new one for you using some recently purchased dies.


xxx Thank you from Mrs Creative Options
