I'm Back Again

I know it has been such a long time. I think I lost my mojo for a little while, I'm not too sure if it is back yet, but I do have some things to show you this week.

First up - it was my dad's 83rd birthday in July, and I couldn't bring myself to buy an "off the shelf" card and packaging, so came up with my own. (It's the curse of a card maker - you can never go back to pre-made - lol.)

The circle circus stamp set is so versatile, just mix up the colours and it can suit anyone. I used Sahara Sand, Close to Cocoa (retiring colour), Soft Suede and Chocolate Chip.

I added some more circles to the inside of the card, and decorated a plain kraft bag with the same pattern to match the card and voila a masculine card and packaging.

The sentiment is a sneak peek of a new set coming soon in the new 2010/2011 Idea Catalogue to be released on 1st September.

Will be back with more soon.


  1. Great idea Alison, I love that colour combo, it is perfect for a male card! Just think, soon we will have even more yummy neutrals to play with!!

  2. Hi Alley,

    Good to see you are back. I love your selection of colour combo and it is a great male combo too. Great idea might have to use that idea for my male cards. Love the card and packaging. It looks like the mojo is on the way up again. thanks for sharing.


  3. Oh wow, Alison...this looks fabulous. Love the colours and the whole co-ordinated look. Still chuckling at your comment about the card-maker's curse...so very true!

  4. I hear you about thatcurse - LOL - but this is awesome Alison - LOVE the colour combo AND this set!
