My favourite type of cards....

I needed a break from Christmas cards, I have been making them for so long it was lovely to have a chance to do something different and I do love making baby cards. Here are a couple I made recently for Michelle at Poppicrafts.

These cards are 2 of my favourite recent makes - look at these fabulous hinges I just love them, and have used them to hide special information about the new baby.

I think the crochet flowers are ideal for new baby cards as they are so tactile, I have teamed them with these gorgeous baby brads and some of my favourite ribbon - I have so many different colours of this - it seems to be the ribbon I always reach for.

Papers and stickers by Melissa frances, Hinges, Brads, crochet flowers and ribbons are available from Poppicrafts.

I would love to know what you think of these little hinges - It's the first time I have used them and I am now completely addicted - I have lots of ideas for different uses for them which I will show you in the near future (when I have made the last few of my Christmas cards!)
More cards to show you soon.

These are just adorable - I love making cards with secret "journalling" too

Do you find it as hard as I do to break out of the Christmas crafting rut though?

I love the hinges - adds a real dimension to the cards - love them.

They are so beautiful Sarah. I have to say, the way you use and tie your ribbons seem to be just perfect, you must choose them with care as they never seem to take over the card, but do give it that soft yet flamboyant look. They really are stunningly gorgeous. As for the hinges, I love them - everyone should have a set in their stash, lol
Big hugs
p.s.Guess whats arriving tomorrow...F.P.- how excited am I
