A Passion for Papertray Challenge

The challenge over on A Passion for Papertray this week is "Spring Clean".

quote: With spring slowly creeping in, we want you to 'spring clean' your crafting stash and find all those goodies that you so needed at the time but haven't actually found a use for....until now!

I decided to get out my Cuttlebug Embossing folders that I just had to have, and only every seem to use "Swiss Dots". Here I have used Swiss Dots, Paisley, Floral Fantasy and Devine Swirls (I think those are the correct names but I could be wrong).

I have used my trusty Papertray Ink "Mega Mixed Messages" stamp set.

I have made these to put into DoCrafts "Crafts for Life" bags which I will take to my local Cancer Research Shop. I've got another twenty cards ready to take in.

Thank you for visiting me today.

Hugs, Clare xx

These are very elegant Clare and the colours beautiful.

I find I forget about my c/b folders and really should use them more.

Hi Clare,
These are just fabulous!!!!

And as a fellow crafter...I know how easy the folder's are to use...but give such an effect that anyone not in the know, would think WOW!!!

I think as a crafter, I tend to think if I haven't slaved over a card for day's then it's not as good as it should be...but your card's just prove me wrong...

Beautifully designed....fantastic paper's...well done Clare...

Very elegant cards Clare. I admit to being a big fan of Swiss Dots too, although I do like the swirly one as well. I need a spring clean of my craft stash and what better way than to fund raise for Cancer Research.
