Craftwork cards Scrumptious flower box card

Hello, design elf Katrina here to welcome you to the blog and show you a really cute card I have made using the Craftwork Cards Scrumptious paper kit.

   If you know Craftwork cards you will know that in each kit you will get a beautiful pad of 8x8 paper, stacks of die cuts and a bag of their matching Candies. The die cuts differ in each themed kit and with this kit you get some really cute flowers and some different sentiments.

  Now I'm not a big user of flowers but for some reason these really caught my eye. They are all different shapes and stack together to make wonderfully cute modern looking flowers. They have also included some cut into a spiral, which can be rolled up to become the centre of your flower.

  So, because of these lovely flowers. I decided to make a flower box card.

This card folds flat to post and is fairly simple to make, there are lots of free templates for this shape card and videos to help you put them together online. Mine was cut out using my Sillhouette Cameo.

I cut the box out in blue card and covered it with one of the papers in the pad.

I made up 4 flowers and cut some leaves out of green card.

I added them to the dividers in the card and added a large sentiment from the kit to the front and a small banner sentiment from the kit to the back wall of the box.

Of course these flowers could be used on all sorts of projects, they are so much fun.

You can find the kit in the Fruit Pixie shop here -

Thank you for popping in today. I would love to know what you think of this kit.

Join me again next week for another project,
Until then take care,
                                            Love Katrina

Craftwork Cards Scrumptious perpetual calendar

Hello, design elf Katrina here to welcome you to my craft nook and to show you a craft project I have made with the Craftwork Cards Scrumptious paper set.

   I always find that after Christmas I want to work with some bright colours and this kit from Craftwork Cards is just the ticket for that. The kit has the usual beautifully designed 8x8 papers in a pad plus die cut toppers. With each of their kits they like to chop and change about with the die cuts and  this time there are die cut flowers. Then of course you get the pack of their Candies, which if you have not come across them before they describe them as brads with out the prongs. So basically a  small 3d domed circle.

 Now I have to confess I am terrible with numbers, especially remembering then. I never know what the date is, never have been able to remember it and I am also almost as bad on the day too, ever since Hubby has taken early retirement. So when I saw this perpetual calendar in the Silhouette design store I thought it might solve the problem so I had to make one.

The calendar was cut on my Silhouette Cameo, an electronic cutting machine which I love.
I made it up in white card then covered it with the beautiful Craftwork Cards Scrumptious papers.

As you can see they all work very beautifully together, as we have come to expect from Craftwork Cards.

Not a very exciting photo I know but I wanted to show there are plainer papers too in the kit.

This is a lovely bright kit. Even though it has quite a lot of pink in it I wouldn't say it was too girly as the browns and blues give you different options for colour combinations.

You can find the kit in the shop here -

                     Next time I have some cards to show you that use the cute flowers from this kit.
                                                    So until then take care of yourself
                                                                                    Love Katrina

Winter birthday cards with Craftwork Cards Winter Forest

Hello and a very Happy Crafty New Year form me The Fruit Pixies design elf and the Fruit Pixie herself.      I am so pleased to be back in my craft room again after a busy Christmas time then a horrible cold but I am feeling better and excited about all the new crafty goodies that will come our way this year.     First though a bit of a look back to the Craftwork Cards Winter Forest paper pack. Now I have 2 family birthdays in December. So I made these cards for them using the Craftwork Cards Winter Forest paper kit. As you can see there is nothing remotely Christmassy about them and they look beautiful as Winter birthday cards
My first card is using one of the toppers in the kit mounted on some of the paper from the paper pad. 
The card base is covered by another of the papers in the paper pack.
I then used one of my punches ( I have a bit of a thing for snowflakes ) to punch some borders from the same paper as the topper mount.
Then I added a happy birthday to finish!
Now for the second I used a shape card cut on my Silhouette Cameo 
I used the beautiful snow paper from the paper pack to cover the sides and bottom pieces.
The owl is printed on the paper in the paper pack so I just cut a piece that included him to fit on the middle piece of the card.
Then I added some die cut snowflakes and another Happy Birthday and it's finished.
      So as you can see just because you have used a kit for Christmas cards they can be used for other cards too.       You can find this kit in the shop here -         Well, I hope you have enjoyed looking at my first project of the year and will join me again and through out the year for some more crafty inspiration and fun.                        Until then look after yourself, love Katrina x
