Jane’s Doodles …


I’ve made a set of little note cards and packaged into a re purposed box. I am linking up to the challenge at Jane’s Doodles.

I started by making 6 note cards finished size 8.5cm x 6cm to match some small envelopes I had on hand. I think these fall into the cute category just by their size.

I stamped images from Jane’s Doodles Doodle Flowers II and Flying High using various inks from SU and PTI along with Versafine onyx black. I paper pierced the kite using scraps of SU patterned paper.

I am using Drops 123-3 knitted with Debbie Bliss Cotton yarn. This is knitted in the round so all I have left are the sleeves. I have not knitted sleeves in the round before. I have started meeting with some other crafty ladies at my local library I am enjoying looking at everyone’s projects. This week there were several ladies working on applique for their quilts, lots of knitters and one lady making envelopes. I finished off two more poppies either scroll down or here https://frommycraftroom.wordpress.com/2014/09/08/a-little-update/

I am hoping to find some crafty time in the school holidays which start here tomorrow. Optimistic as I have bought home 2 boxes of work from the office.  I have also found pinterest in the last week.  Still learning how to get around and pin things.  If you have any handy hints or tips I would love to know.

Thanks for stopping by

  1. Just love those pretty note cards Vicki! Wonderful to have so many occasions covered for your stash. Your crafty Library group sounds very interesting – there are so many creative people about – once you are doing things yourself, you seem to find like-minded people everywhere. I have to tell you, now that you have found Pinterest – oh dear, what can I say, but so many Pins and not enough time! Don’t get me wrong, it is a wonderful tool, and I do like it, but it can be so time-consuming as it can become another addiction lol! I guess you know that you can create your own boards, eg. I have SU, cards I love, christmas, you get the idea – and then when you see something that really inspires you, you can pin it to your own board. I am no expert, and am still unaware of how to find boards I have followed, but never seem to find again – so pinning something special to your own board allows you to find it again easily. Good luck with the holidays – I will be doing some cooking with our local grandkids (ie. the two who live within a km of us, as opposed to those who live overseas or the other side of Melbourne) – and a little card-making of course! Hugs, Ann
    PS sorry about the long comment!

  2. Hi Ann. Thank you. I value your comments/feedback and appreciate you taking the time to do so. I have found heaps on pinterst I joined as I was having trouble finding things again in blog land that I liked so I hope to be able to contain. I do agree so many ideas and not enough time.
    Have a great time cooking with the grand children.

  3. Hi Vicki! Thanks so much for the sweet blog love you have been leaving on my blog! I finally found a minute to pop by and check out your blog! I love these classy notecards … And what a nice way to package them all up together! I am working on some mini card packs at the moment (to sell) … If ever I find the time to get them done! You have inspired me to get back to them. Love your jumper too! It looks like a lovely soft yarn! Off to see what else you have been up to lately! Hugs Andrea xxx

  4. Awww, loving the mini cards! Well done on your jumper too – I seem to start lots of projects & get excited by the next project & never finish the first one, so I have loads of partially finished projects around the house!

  5. What a great gift idea, I’ve got a ‘ahem’ few cards lying around here that I really should do something with, my friends are probably sick of me shoving them their way when they visit lol. ps a word of warning about Pinterest…. it’s addictive lol!
