Making daisies


Today I have been experimenting with the Creative Memories Place-n-Punch Blossom punch and snowflake punch to make a daisy and am pleased with the results: Daisy using the CM Blossom Punch and Snowflake punch

To make the daisy I have used the following materials:

Place’n’Punch – Blossom

Snowflake Mini Pocket Punch

White cardstock

Scrap yellow cardstock

Tape runner

CM All Purpose Scissors


1)  Cut two flowers out of the Place-n-Punch Blossom punch

I could also have used the Border Maker -Twinkle Chain cartridge and used the centre of the patterns as well for the centre of the flower and used two to get a different effect.

As you can see the daisy is very simple to make and I hope you have fun with this idea.

Happy scrapping


Wedding card

I have got a lot of inspiration from Pinterest and decided to try my hand at doing a wedding card, using a different range of techniques.

I have embossed a cream metallic paper with a cuttlebug embossing folder.

Then on some scrap paper I have drawn a template for a dress and used that to cut out the shape from the embossed paper.

With my Creative Memories Blossom place’n’punch I have punch out a flower from some cream metallic paper.  I creased all the edges and then cut one crease to the middle.  I have pleated up the flower and then glued to flower onto the waist of the dress.

I have made the small flowers out of using my Border Maker system twinkle chain cartridge.  I have glued them with my CM glue pen onto the bodice.  I then put some pearls onto the middle of the flowers and also the middle of the larger flower.

I then cut a piece of Divine dark brown paper to back onto my cardstock.

I cut an oval out of cream Divine paper and laid it over the top of the brown paper.  I also trimmed the cream paper to make the brown paper mat the cream paper. I just eyeballed how much I trimmed it.

I then stamped a Congratulations from Stamp’n’Up on a piece of scrap cream paper.  This was then matted in onto the brown paper and then placed it on the bottom front of the card.Cheers for now.  Patricia
