Celebrate

Morning all, another shadow box to share with you today.  Absolutely love love love the Subtles DSP.  Pool party is one of my favourite colours.  It looks very bright in this picture as I had to turn the lighting up so that you could see the flowers and leaves stamped onto acetate. The wooden sentiment goes just perfectly in the box.  Very pleased with how this one turned out.
Thank you for stopping by today.

Play day make

Good morning, what a lovely day out there.  It' lovely to see the sunshine again, it seems to make people more cheery, don't you think?
Anyway, a couple of weekends ago I went to our monthly play day and Lesley of Lesleyscraftroom gave us a set of materials to make a couple of small cards.
Lesley's examples were lovely, unfortunately I didn't get a picture of one of them, sorry Lesley!
Here is Lesley's make which was using the materials supplied.  I just love the way Lesley has placed the little flowers, a great 3d effect card.   I also L O V E the way she always puts the little cut in the side of the card to hold her ribbon or thread.  What a great idea eh?

These were my two makes from the materials.  I absolutely love the Tip Top Taupe colour, especially the striped paper.  You can't see on the picture but I can assure you there is lots of glitter in the tree!

I have once again chosen one of my favourite colours, blue.  I can also assure you that there is plenty of glitter on this card too!

Rudolph Day September

Good morning
Well I am so pleased with myself that I have managed to get my card ready for the Rudolph Day challenge over at Scrappy Mo's on time!
I have made a shadow box to look like a window (oringal shadow box inspiration was from Amanda from The Craft Spa ). I have embossed the snow in the background, stamped & embossed the Lovely as a Tree set of trees on acetate and placed it behind the window frame which I have made using the Stampin'Up  new Hearth & Home framelit die set.

Thank you for stopping by today

Gold & Black - lush


Good morning, today I wanted to share with you this little box.  I have not got around to making all of the cards that will go inside of it, so will be posting those another day.
The lush paper I have used for covering the box is from the new Autumn/Winter "Handmade for the Season" catalogue, it's called Winter Wonderland Speciality DSP.  It is no ordinary paper, it almost feels like a superior thick wrapping paper.  It feels really smooth to touch.    The flowers are made by stamping & embossing with gold embossing powder onto acetate. Love the sentiment thinlets.
You could put other little gifts inside of this box including chocolates, oh yeah!

Anyway, thank you for stopping by today.

Take care

Just for You

Good morning, well what a noisy night out there last night.  The sound of the thunder woke me with a start I can tell you!!  It is still "a rather blustery day" (as Pooh Bear would say to Piglet) but hopefully the rain will go before I leave for work.

Today I am sharing a notelet sized card that I made to pop into a new catalogue to send to a new customer.

The stamp set is the lovely Awesomely Artistic which I have stamped on acetate using gold embossing powder and colouring the flowers with the white pen and leaves with Mossy Meadow ink. I then had to cut it out, which does take some patience!
Thank you for stopping by today

Black & white - Thank you cards


Good morning all, in the new catalogue I spotted some lovely black doilies together with the black glimmer sheets.  I just knew I wanted them but had no idea what I was going to do with them.  So today I am sharing a little box of "Thank You" cards that I made over the weekend using them.

A little sneaky peek at the cards inside

Playday swaps from me


Good morning,
Yay, the sun is shining.  Don't you think that it makes the world seem a happier place when that sun shines?
I had a lovely weekend, albeit full on!   Did lots of crafting, met up with old friends and new ones too.  Absolutely exhausted but happy!
Back to work today.
Today I am sharing with you the swaps that I gave to my crafting friends at playday yesterday.
Little pouches made using the Square Pillow Box thinlets
Spent a while scouring the shops to find something that would fit inside as a gift  Found the perfect fit in these little car freshners from Wax Lyrical.
You could put cash or gift cards in these too.

Enjoy your week and happy crafting!

Thank you for stopping by today

Take care

English Garden meets pillow box die

Good morning, today I wanted to share with you the new square pillow box die.  I just love it and have made loads already!  I saw this design on Pinterest but unfortunately couldn't find again! 
This is my take on it.
I love the paper I have used called English Garden.  SU DSP is so versatile being that it is double sided and obviously matching.
As you can see I have folded down one of the top edges to form a pouch instead of a box.
This photo shows the pillow box made up.    


I have also used other products from the fabulous new Autumn/Winter catalogue.   The curvy corner trio punch was used on the tag, the pouch and the box have the new silver and gold cording trim and I have added one of the lovely new sparkly Iced rhinestones too.                                                                                           

Thank you for stopping by today.

Take care
