Bubblegum Hills Goodness!

This month I was sent the aptly named (coz it's soooo yummy!) 'Bubblegum Hills' collection from Kaisercraft in my DT kit from Handmade By Suzanne. The hoarder in me came out as soon as I saw the pps, coz they were so pretty I didn't really want to cut them up! LOL I did get over it though, as was soon happily cutting away...

For this LO, I actually used the reverse side of the 'Berry Surprise' sheet, as I loved the patchwork look of it. (I just added some machine stitching to make it look more authentic.) The cute flowers were handcut from the 'Calipso Punch' sheet and then layered with foam mounting tape. The larger layered flower is one of the coordinating printed chipboard pieces, which even have the button already attached for you - gotta love that! The alphas are 'Cushies' from Pink Paislee (you can snap them up now at 40% off!) Of course the LO wouldn't have been complete without my beloved Bakers Twine and a sprinkling of coloured pearls - can't get enough of either of them! I also snuck on a bit of green spotty washi tape.

I also made this card...

I love how the orange / pink combo came out on this card! I used the 'Orange Pop' pp for the base, and the sentiment came from 'Berry Surprise' (the top side this time). The gorgeous butterfly (as with the one on the LO above) was cut from the stunning 'Fruity Galaxy' specialty glitter paper (and was the sheet I most wanted to hoard...LOL) I also used a Queen & Co felt 'Doodle' border, more yummy pearls, an old Kaisercraft epoxy brad and a chenille button from my stash.

If you haven't shopped with Handmade By Suzanne before, pop over and register, as everyone receives 15% off their first order. The store is always bursting with new stock as well as lots of 40% off sale items and even 60% off sale items to tempt you! In other exciting news, ALL orders are now sent via registered post at no extra charge (so still only flat rate $5), with orders over $50 being posted for free. Significantly reduced express post rates are now also offered - so if you just can't wait for that parcel, ask for a quote when you order! :-)

I just love all your creations with these gorgeous papers Sue!!
I know what you mean about not wanting to cut paper up... I've still got pp's I bought about a year ago and I take it out every now and again and look at it, stroke it and sigh... and then put it away again! Lol! I think I need therapy!!! :)
Have a great weekend! xx
