"In Colour" tasteful trim card

My project today is a card that I made ages ago but only up to the point of the zig-zag made using the "Tasteful trim" Bigz Die as I wasn't sure what to put as a focal point on the card.

I only recently added the gorgeous sentiment from the "Million & One" stamp set.

I used the five colours from the 2013-15 In Colour collection;  These collections are a great way to add multiply colours as they always go so well together. 

I like making basic cards that can easily be adapted to any situation, it's great when you need a card in a hurry as you only have to add the sentiment or a lovely image and your good to go.

Have a great day ..  xx

ABAC Sunday - Ugly diary makeover

My ABAC, (Anything But A Card), Sunday share this week is my diary.  Now don't get too excited, there aren't any secrets being shared, I just wanted to show you how I changed a very boring looking diary into something much more suitable.

it's from Paperchase and started life as a very plain-Jane indeed...

... but I liked the day-to-a-page layout inside, (I'm very fussy about what my diary layout is like), and it was a very reasonable price, but sooo boring to look at, but no longer!

A little bit of DSP, "Quatrefancy Speciality" to be exact and a little ribbon, some of the lovely "Chevron Ribbon" in "Island Indigo" and voila!

Something pretty and functional - yay!

Have a wonderful and restful Sunday!
