52 Cards Wks 12 & 13: Mothers Day Cards

While my trimmer has been out of action I've been having to make do with a smaller trimmer only suitable for cards, so scrapping has had to be sidelined giving me time to catch up on the 52 Card Challenge and make the Mothers Day cards. Week 12 was a colour prompt, drawing colours from this picture
Sometime ago I brought some MME Miss Caroline papers from Create & Craft, but in typical Jess fashion I hadn't used them as they didn't fit my style of scrapping but as it turns out are great for cards. This is the card I made for mumma B
I decided to pull out my very neglected flower stash to fit with the spring feel. I'm sure I'm not the only one who brought loads of flowers when they started scrapping but have never actually used them, or have left them sitting untouched on the side. 

As the papers were out I used them for Wk 13's prompt which was to use this sketch
Hmm I wonder who has a Polaroid frame die? That's right I do! This is the card u made for mumma G 
Again I used some neglected flowers but this time added some butterflies punched from some scraps of card. 

Update on the trimmer: finally had an email from Fiskars asking for photos of the trimmer, after calling me Sonia! I emailed some photos to them and had an automated response saying the department was closed until April 7th! 

BUT... a new trimmer arrived yesterday, not from Fiskars but a Stampin Up trimmer I ordered as a replacement. 

And the good news... Today I have been scrapping so stayed tuned!! 


  1. Lovely cards and glad you got your new trimmer :)
