Crazy Crafters Blog Hop - Sweet Soirée

Image may contain: text

Hello everyone.
How are the holidays going for you? 
Some of you may even be back at work already, I know I am 😊 

As a team we love to inspire and also be inspired by our fellow demonstrators. When we find inspirations we then share with you all.
The Crazy Crafters special guest today is the inspirational  Meg Loven.
Thank you Meg for being our inspiration today.

Here is Megs card that inspired my project.

you can click HERE to see her post.

I chose this design because I love using up scraps to create something new with. 
And I have had a certain little scrap just waiting for the right time to be part of something beautiful.

Today is that time.

My Sweet Soirée

When CASEing we decide on certain elements to keep. Sometimes it can be just as simple as being inspired by a layout, or even the placement of the sentiment.

The elements I chose to use were 

  • The silhouette focal, which was my special scrap piece that I just couldn't throw away! *Can you pick which set it's from?
  • The banners
  • and the Best Birds
I chose to use the absolutely gorgeous Sweet Soirée DSP and matching ribbon as my design base.
Sweet Soirée and all matching elements will be available for purchase in MY STORE from the 3rd January 2018.

If you haven't received a copy of the new catalogues yet, then please email me with your deets and I will organise to send you a copy!

I picked the stunning Berry Burst floral sheet which has Calypso Coral with silver dots on the reverse side.
I did wonder how I was going to tie in my black silhouette (*Eclectic Layers Thinlits) with such vibrant colours, without over powering the DSP.
The gorgeous DSP as a background also proved to be slightly problematic as it is very busy.
So, I decided that vellum sheet over the reverse DSP as a banner duo would help break it up nicely.
I think I have achieved a perfect mix of busy, while drawing your eye to the focal and created a beautifully striking card.

What do you think?

I hope you really enjoyed my project today.
I look forward to sharing more with you in the New Year.

If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.
I always reply.


  1. Oh my gosh Kim, gorgeous card. Those colours are so vibrant. Might need to CASE you :)
