I ♥ Freebie papers!


This week at Cupcake, Minxie has chosen I ♥ You. Your project doesn't necessarily have to be a Valentine project, but it must include at least one heart on it somewhere. Pop over and see the absolutely gorgeous creations The Cupcakes have made to inspire you. This week, By Lori Designs are sponsoring us and our monthly sponsor is Crafts U Love.

Over at
Sketch n Stash, Jackie has created this faberoony sketch:

We are joined by two generous sponsors for this challenge; Simon Says Stamp and Bunny Zoes. Be sure to take a look at the wonderful cards the SnS Girls have made.

Everyone that has seen this card so far has commented on the lovely papers. They came free with a magazine. I normally just chuck 'em, but I especially liked these two. The sweet Hanglar is a RAK image from Sandra from a long time ago. I can't bring myself to use them, when they're gone, they're gone! And it's possible that I may have slipped the border punch past a completely un-manned baggage control...

Boxes packed: 25
Moving day in: 5 Days (TBC)

Very cute Faye! The paper is pretty! The pearls look so nice on the heart. If I ever post my cards this week I went pearl crazy! Packing is coming along. You must work like me, I seem to do better under pressure, right down to the wire. Do explain your baggage control situation. Are you not able to buy crafts where you live? I've read where you mentioned this a few times and am not sure what you mean.

Jane said...

Hmm! Baggage control out "the back" having a "nifty"! Lucky for you...My OH thinks I now have HUGE BREASTS with the amount of stash I'm hiding in my hammocks! Tried BIG PANTS but carrying a guillotine & spare blades in that department is not advisable!!!
Love yer lush card today...bootiful rich colours xxx

What a beautiful "love" card. I love your coloring - it is beautiful! So many techniques on this card really bring out its beauty. Love those pearls around the heart. This is so groovy and free papers from a magazine - very cool! What kind of energy you have - 25 boxes so soon? Girl, I'm totally amazed at your crafting AND packing all in the same space - super woman!

Fab card Faye, love those papers and all those pearls :o) Well done with all that packing, and thanks for your lovely message on my blog. Lisa x

Margo said...

Hi Faye,
I do believe you will be ready on time :)
My hubby says I overreact on the packing when it comes to moving :) We have moved 4 times in 10 years time and I'm really done packing ! I told him that he can buy another house but I will do the painting and stuff, he can do the packing and arrange the moving ! Think I have twist when it comes to moving ? LOL

Delphine said...

I love your card, Faye! The papers are gorgeous indeed and all those hearts look fab - I love the little charm and the one with pearls! As for the image, it is adorable and I understand why you save them, they are so difficult to have... Congratulations on the 25 boxes too, it is getting better:-)! Hugs Delphine xxx

Donna said...

I knew you'd be up to double figures lol!!!! Gorgeous card Faye and such a stunning design...I agree the papers are bee-u-tiful :) Donna x

Chris said...

This is so beautiful Faye and I agree with everyone else about those gorgeous papers, what a lush colour combo. Love your colouring, your little Hanglar is so sweet. Been having a catch up and a giggle, you have a habit of making me do that :D. Well done on all that boxing up too! Hugs, Chris x

Chris said...

Oh, forgot to say what made me laugh most was re baggage control and the punch! Managed to circumnavigate my baggage control tonight via temporary hidden hallway stash cupboard but forgot about large box left by recycling bin in lunch break. Had to admit to Ebay purchase but luckily temporary hallway stash was much more expensive and not noticed :D. Have a good week and thanks for your sweet comments, hugs C x

Davi said...
