Owl card. I love this cute stamp! I would tell you where its from but I lost the packaging and I cant remember!!
This is the perfect size for a gift card!
This one is small card sized but I have a little slot inside for a gift card also.

Hi there everyone and thanks for stopping by. Today I'd like to show you a couple of cards that I’ve made using the gorgeous items from the September Kit from Crafty Alley.
The DP that I’ve used are Basic Grey and this is included in the September Kit from Crafty Alley and I’ve distressed the edges using my scissors.
The pink ribbon that I’ve used on the bottom card is also in the September Kit.
Ok that’s it from me today and hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.
Hugs Michele x

I love the papers in the September Crafty Alley kit, they are so bright and vibrant. I decided to alter a photo frame using the kit papers and the chip board butterfly from the kit mini album. I wanted something bright and summery for my craft room wall - I want to pretend the weather is still sunny and bright! I had some flowers left over from previous kits, the trim on the top left is remaining from the Dublin Crop kit and the little flowers were from my stash. I painted the frame turquoise and when dry went over it with brown crackle paint (also from a previous crafty alley kit!). I painted the butterfly turquoise also and then stamped it in wild honey distress ink. When dry I painted over it in clear distress crackle paint.
The colours are not showing up great in the photo, the light has gone really bad here and because of the glass in the frame it was hard to get a good angle for a picture. It is lovely and vibrant in real life though! Here is a close up taken straight on....

Last Friday, you may recall that I mentioned that I had a project to share using the chipboard pieces that originally came with the "School Daze" album that I made from the K&Co. album. The chipboard album came in the September kit from the Crafty Alley that I created for my youngest daughter. I didn't want to use the chipboard pieces that came with it in her album, so I made a little wall hanging for my eldest daughter. It was kind of awkward to photograph because of the length of it, so I also did some close up photos for you to have a better idea of what I did with them.
I covered each of the pieces with the patterned paper from the kit, added eyelets and jump rings, and these lovely connectors that I picked up while we were in the States this past summer. The little gold confetti stars came in the kit as well. I added some of them behind the large "dew drop" and also added some to the "K" after I melted UTEE onto it.
The scalloped frame above that I painted and crackled did not come in the kit, it came from my stash. This was a fun project to work on. You can contact Cathy@craftyalley.com if you'd like to inquire into purchasing this kit.
