Take a look at some cool decoupage

I love Jozza's work, and was very taken with these two cards. The first is made with some new decoupage papers, which I thought were so funky and different to the usual flowers/fairies/teddies. The second is an inspiring Christmas design that I for one will be scraplifting this year. Click HERE to see Jozza's great blog

Michele's Stunning Cards....

How cute is this baby swinging from the tree!!!

Michele's blog is packed full of wonderful cards, beautifully crafted and I loved reading her posts which always describe how she made each card. These two cards really caught my eye and I had to reread her description to confirm the first card was actually made using a stamp - it is coloured to perfection. You can see Michele's blog HERE.

Hulda's Beautiful Blog

Isn't this Christening card stunning!

It's always great to get an award from a fellow crafter, but it's really great when you get to visit the blog of the person who created it. Hulda is one such lady, she is the creator of the Kreativ Blogger award which adorns many of our blogs.

Hulda's blog has beautiful photography where she incorporates many of her cards which are exquisite in detail. Her cards and tags are filled with romance and her whole blog is created with such fine elegance. I loved looking at all the wonderful creations.

These flowers are made by Suz she is a dear friend of mine and fellow craft buddie, so I am lucky to see these and many other delights that come out of Suz's craft room. She is such an inspiration as she not only produces amazing scrapbook pages and paper folding projects, but she also creates and uses almost all her own papers. Her blog is a pleasure to read as it incorporates not only her craft projects, but her love of her 3 *uber* cute and sometimes crafty cats, but her love of flowers in her garden too.

I am working on her at the moment, to try and get her to produce a tutorial of some of her paper folding projects for Inspirational's Tips & Techniques blog.

You can see this paper flower and more of Suz's work here
