It was Mother’s Day here in Australia today. I enjoyed a weekend of family time as I celebrated being a Mum to my three mini Papercrafts and also celebrating with my Mum – Nanna Papercraft.
I received thoughtful gifts from my gorgeous trio – a handmade box with gift vouchers, a personalised decorated stationary set, presents from the school Mothers Day stall, cards & artwork from school and a cute llama mama nightie which I shall be snugly wearing to bed tonight!
Here’s a proud Mum share of their handmade papercrafts (with thanks to Nanna Papercraft for being the facilitator).
I’m also sharing one of Maddie’s Mother’s Day artworks because it was so cute – my love of paper, stamps & inks is no secret in this house!
For my Mum this Mother’s Day I’ve been working on a Mini Album Card using Floral Romance DSP. I love the combination of green, purple, pink & white – in such a delicate balance. I was able to complete it this week when my Everything is Rosy Product Medley arrived.
Sometimes when products have an identity within a bundle, it’s hard to see them any other way, but the stamps & dies that come in the Everything is Rosy Product Medley are so versatile, they go with lots of the other Stampin’ Up! designs – especially florals.
Somewhere between a scrapbook album and a fancy card, the Mini Album is a great way to take the card to a whole new level! This is the second Mini Album card I’ve shared. You can find the first one as part of the ESAD blog hop last month with full instructions – click here.
You can see how well the stamps & dies blend with the DSP for a wonderful collaboration. Mixing between suites & bundles gives new life to everything you own!
The sentiment stamp set I’ve used for this card is called Strong & Beautiful and is on page 48 of the Occasions Catalogue. It’s full of empowering words and fabulous phrases – ready to stamp and send to your Mum, girlfriends, team members or other women in your life worth admiring.
The vellum sheets in the Floral Romance DSP are so delightful! Delicate yet bright, they add elegance to every project! For this card I’ve used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere them to Whisper White cardstock before adding them as a layer to my card.
The Floral Romance DSP is on the Last Chance Retirement List. If you love this DSP, it’ll be worth stocking up now before it is no longer available.

I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend, and the week ahead is filled with wonderful!
