Summer Projects

I thought I would share a few of the recent projects I have completed as part of my CPT work for DownUnder Direct.
All these projects have a bright, colourful Summer theme.

This card was made using the gorgeous new Square Decorative Frames from JustRite Stamps.
There is a tutorial and full product list for this card and you can see it here.

This was a cute little table lantern I made from Embossed Bazzill and Spellbinders. You can see the full product list here.

I loved making these cute little watermelon note/gift cards.
All that was required was a couple of Spellbinder dies, Bazzill and some Kindy Glitz.
Full product list here.

These party decorations were for a bit of fun. There are plenty of variations of these on the net. They look cute in a bowl as a table centrepiece or attached to some string or ribbon for hanging.

Just used Bazzill Dotted Swss and small brads for these.

And lastly is this card I made using Spellbinders, Bazzill and some JustRite Stamps.
Full product list can be viewed here.

Thanks for stopping by and a huge thank you to everyone who has left lovely comments on my blog recently. Very, very much appreciated :)
