I have been watching a lot of YouTube videos lately 🙂 Who gets sucked into watching them like me?? hehe I stumbled across this card making YouTube tutorial and it inspired me to make my own card 🙂
It was my friend’s birthday coming up so I decided to make her a card 🙂 She loves Paris and I thought this was a pretty nifty idea and who doesn’t like heart felt hand made cards 🙂
What you will need :
Any Plain or colored cardboard
Cutting knife and board or scissors
Picture that you want to use
Ruler and pencil
What you need to do is really easy – I created a stencil of 3 different rectangles, use your ruler to create even rectangles and cut them out with your stanley knife or scissors.
Place this stencil to trace around your preferred picture and then cut around your picture.
Then on colored paper/cardboard – arrange the picture so that the rectangles are on slight angles and voila 🙂 Card done!
The weather has been lovely – increasingly hot – Summer is definitely here to stay for a while 🙂 That’s the time to rock out some maxi dresses. I own a couple of different maxis. I think this one is my favourite though. With hues of green, purple, yellow white and blacks. The pattern is like lace with different lines.
I paired it with this cobalt cardigan 🙂
On another note, I saw these cute ipad cases in Typo. If only I had an ipad 🙂

So what do you all think of maxis? Love them or loathe them?
We have a scorcher of a day today – 39 degrees and we are also having the Australian Open 🙂 It makes me want to play tennis and I spend lots of time watching tennis on tv 🙂 Summer always makes me want to be really active and go jogging or play sports.
I’m wearing this colorful blocked top – I love the colors in it and these teal jeans with these thrifted sandals that I scored for 1 dollar 🙂
I got them from this market in Camberwell 🙂 Markets are always full of surprises sometimes you find gems and it is always different every time you go 🙂
Hope you are all having a happy weekend 🙂 Mine was spent lazing around playing with my rabbits and going market shopping.
This is some blue peplum. I have tried other peplum tops but some weren’t that flattering but this one curves at the right places 🙂
Paired it with this blue pencil skirt and my jeweled sandals 🙂
I have been joining the correspondence club for the last couple of months and love the feeling of getting snail mail. One of my penpals was from Mexico and she sent me these lovely dove earrings that I can’t wait to wear. I also love reading about her culture and traditions.
This is what I sent out recently to my new penpal 🙂

I also just watched Les Miserables in the cinemas!
It is is a great musical!! Sooo sad – (there were not many dry eyes) yet soo good 🙂 I recommend watching it or if you can watch the stage show 🙂
