I have come with the newest inspiration for you. This time I decided to make round cards:
I used lovely Shabby Chic Bouquet paper collection and beautiful Little Birdie flowers. The collection has many pretty elements to cut out. I used them to create a layered, interesting compositions on my cards.
I invite you to watch the video tutorial. You will see how I created the cards step by step . I’m hoping to inspire you and to give you an idea for your version of round cards!
Hi Everyone Kerrie back with another project for Little Birdie Crafts
this time I have created a little mini album using their Celebrate Life 6×6 pad
This mini is so quick to create and you can use it to send gift cards or add some favourite photos from a special event or use it as a little brag book
to create the base you just need 3 and a half sheets of 6×6 patterned cardstock single sided or 3 sheets if you have double sided paper.
Step 1 | score the first one at 3″ and fold in half, cut another sheet in half and adhere to the top outer
Step 2 | Cut a strip from the 6×6 patterned cardstock and adhere to inside right side and slot the first page insert to see where you need to score to create a wrap around
Step 3 | repeat as per 2nd insert to create your third and outer page
I have created mine to match up with the amount of pattern I want showing out the side to create the pocket layers
Step 4 adhere the pages together making sure to only add adhesive to the top and bottom edges as you want to create pockets
Using Sculpture Paste and a silicone mold I created some leaves, just leave in the mold to dry and then paint using White Gesso
using French Rose Chalk Pain I painted my Primed Chipboard Round Flourish
While the chipboard is still wet sprinkle on some Strawberry Lips Shimmer Hodge Podge and set aside to dry
next I fussy cut some pieces from the fussy cut sheets in the pad and then layered all my pieces on the front adding some handmade flowers as one can never create without some gorgeous LBC flowers I then added some more Strawberry Lips Shimmer Hodge Podge this time using Gel Medium to adhere the bling where I wanted
finish off with punched out pieces and some journal cards tucked into the pockets (you can add photos or gift cards or a combination of all into the pockets if you prefer Add some string wrapped around to hold the album closed

Colorful and bright colors are perfect for cards with a positive message. Celebrate every moment is a sentence I cutout from the beautiful ‘Celebrate Life’ paper collection. These words inspire me to create cards filled with colors and textures.
For the background I used a very interesting stencil with honeycomb pattern and white texture paste. White texture paste created a nice looking contrast with the pink paper.
To add more texture, I also use some delicate white laces. My cards always looks very three dimensional not only because I’m using many layers of paper and other details but also because I adhere all of them using double sided 3D adhesive tape.
This card is a combination of three paper collections. The one that I have already mentioned ‘Celebrate Life’ and also ‘Birds and Berries’, and ‘Boho Dreams’.
I’m always writing here that I love Little Birdies paper flowers and well it is true and I have to write about it one more time. To create my flower composition, I used one very big yellow flower and a few smaller ones to fulfill the focus point.
I hope you like my project and you feel inspired to create your own.
