Tuesday, Tuesday

Yesterday I made some cards:




Today I'm going to get stuck into making my layout for Pass The Page over at Letting the Days Roll By. It's like Chinese Whispers for scrapbookers. But the page has a way to go yet before we can reveal how it has changed from first scrapper to last!

Tomorrow I'm going to take my Ikea picture frame and my roll of chicken wire and make a pinboard..


..so I'm keeping busy. If you haven't had a chance yet, do drop by Storytelling Sunday for a browse. We have 34 stories for you; and the promise of at least one more to come! It's not too late - the linky stays open all week and you are very welcome to join us.

And, just before I go: if you are looking for a single copy of Scrap365, you could check out Gottacraft right here Edited to add: Gottacraft has sold out of magazines! But if you are interested in Craft Stamper, she has some of those in stock

Lovely cards - very peaceful. Sounds like you are busy. Love the mag and also really enjoyed story telling sunday.

lovely cards Sian especially the first one.
I like the frame and chicken wire idea may have a go myself sometime.
Thanks for the info of where to get the mag I've ordered it and 2 Distress ink pads fell into my bag too lol

Cheryl said...

love what you've done with the negative space and reverse cut-out of the bird on the first card. Go double-sided paper!

Cheri said...

beautiful cards and such a soothing color scheme.

Jimjams said...

Love that first one - off to catch up with a few more stories - I like to do about ⅓ at a time so that I can savour them!

Sue Althouse said...

Lovely cards! I see you've been putting your Slice to work. The blue and orange color combo is one of my very favorites!

alexa said...

Very pretty cards - they have a lovely summery feel which, on our dreech and misty day up here, is a welcome sight! Clearly am too late for the scrap 365, for she's out of stock already! :(

furrypig said...

i love your love card! Gotta Craft outta stock but according to UKS there is a number to phone to order it from the publisher so I will be doing that me thinks!

Alison said...

Lovely card creations! You are one busy crafter!! I started to attempt to knit socks yesterday, with my sister. Lots of laughs and so far a few inches of a knitted cuff! Not much scrapping going on though. :(

furrypig said...

just ordered via the phone on 0168488599 with Traplet (the publishers) as website still down. Spoke with a lovely lady called Michelle who even had the magazine there and turned to your page Sian! I am looking forward to getting mine now, she also said the 3 copies for £3 runs until January so plenty of time for us all to sign up. xxx

Those are lovely cards, and I'm intrigued by the Chinese whispers-style of scrapbooking. Where do you find these things?

Alana said...

Beautiful card Sian....do you think you CAN make them yet? Likewise on the busy front. Lots of inspiration around and I am getting stuck into a few projects too.

Deb @ Paper Turtle said...

Gorgeous cards, Sian!!! Looking forward to seeing your pin board!

Louise said...

when i read you'd made some cards i expected to find them of the christmas theme! These are very refreshing Sian, love the stitching touch x

Gem's Crafts said...

You've certainly been busy! I've been hearing good things about Scrap365, I'm going to see if I can pick up a copy at the weekend :)

Jo said...

I love the cards, can't wait to see the pinboard

Susan said...

Lovely cards! I especially like the creative way you die-cut on the first one.

Sandie said...

Gorgeous cards, specially the one with the bow. I'm looking forward to seeing your pinboard, and I LOVE Ikea. I have a hoard of frames & shelves waiting to be used/put up.

Amy said...

The cards are lovely, I really like those colours, they are fresh and soothing!

Irene said...

You always choose such lovely colours. Do you go by instinct or look at colour schemes. Please share, pretty please!

Melissa said...

Your cards are lovely - I especially like the stitching on them. You are certainly keeping busy with some fun projects!

laurie said...

oh, i do love your cards and can't decide if they would be more fun to send or to receive....

Sian said...

Irene, I pulled all of these colours from one kit - last month's Midnight Rooster. Tobi makes a beautiful job of combining colours, she did the hard work this time!

Becky said...

I love these cards - the colours are gorgeous.

Ifa said...

uh, chicken wire...that's interesting. I might have some of that but I'll wait to see yours first

Maria Ontiveros said...

Awesome cards - the first one is so beautiful, but my favorite are the little birds following each other.
I'm very crafty these days, too!
And I remember when you thought you couldn't make cards . . .

Missus Wookie said...

I placed an order at Smiths - figured they might get intrigued and stock it ;)

Ginger said...

Sian!! Your cards are Beautiful!! i love the blue :) Another thing I have noticed about your cards are the greetings, I never seem to come up with anything other than the typical "thank you" or "congratulations". Very creative :)

nicole said...

can't wait to see the end product for your pinboard

Bubbles said...

I totally lve the 'cut out and reversed' birdie on the first card - fantastic!

Clair said...

Oooh. Pass The Page. It's getting closer and closer. I can't wait to have my turn :)

Lisa said...

totally gorgeous cards. and someone else who can do the most beautiful perfect double bows. mine are always a disappointment. I will study yours to try and learn the secret :-)

Gail said...

What lovely looking cards. I especially love that first one. I always envy people who can do bows, mine always look lame.

Rachel B said...

Ok, I'm so intrigued about the photo frame and chicken wire. I can't wait to see what you have made :)

jennifer said...

Oh sian, I'm in awe of your cardmaking. You make it look so effortless! x
