Folk Floral

Hi everyone

Today sees the end of my summer break and back to work for me. Definitely mixed feelings about that!
The other day I became aware that my Join This Site button wasn't working- hopefully it's all fixed now and you can follow my blog, if you would like to :-)
Today's cards have been made using Docrafts Folk Floral range. I have been a member of their Creativity Club for a while and was lucky enough to win a huge bundle of goodies in their June club draw. I love this collection- the colours are fantastic and there are lots of happy quotes and sentiments to make you smile.
My first card is full of layers and die cuts, making use of lots of papers and a decoupage element:

I do love the combination of this collection with kraft card and I've also added some twine to my buttons to complete the slightly rustic look.
Products used:
Docrafts Folk Floral A4 Paper Pack, Decoupage Pack and Die Cut Toppers and Sentiments, Owl Folk Buttons
First Edition Flower Dies 
X Cut Doilie Die
Twine from stash

My second card is clean and simple, based on my Crowning Affair card you've seen before. I love this sentiment ribbon and bow and have used a stamp from the collection to add a phrase to a blank tag (I think those tags are a great addition to the range).

Products used:
Docrafts Folk Floral A4 Paper Pack, Mini Printed Tags, Ribbon and Ribbon Bows
