Shabby Chic Mini Album!!!


Good morning my dears,   I'm here today to share my 
Design Team project  with you for




Today I've decorated a pre bought 6 page album, the pages are wood and I painted them all with Gesso before using one of the 
pages as a template to cut out the paper by hand. 
 I chose Lemoncraft Heart Painted 12 x 12 paper to decorate the pages,  I fussy cutting some of the butterfly's and also used one of the cute clock buttons from
the same collection.

 All the flowers on the front cover and inside have been handmade using the papers and various Spellbinder and Doohickey dies. The bird cage and bird are a Tim Holtz Alterations die but once again I've used the papers
for the very top layer after cutting it out in chipboard. 

 Here are more pics of this beautiful collection.



You will find lots of lovely papers, chipboard elements, flowers and much more over at scrapandcraft.co.uk 



Thank you so much for popping in to visit. I wish you all a wonderful weekend.

Midweek Magnolias #137 Midway Reminder

Good morning my dears I'm here to remind you
that you still have time to join us over at 




With our theme of  


"Say it with Flowers" 



I've stamped up the cute Pisces Tilda from the Zodiac 2014 collection and coloured her 
with Copic markers and Derwent soft pencil, addinga little glamour dust
 to the pearls in her hair and to the bubbles around her. 



This is an 8x8 canvas which I gesso'd and then used my Tim
Holts distress inks on the corners and sides.  I also used quite a few elements
 from the contents of my mixed media Craft Box.  Prima papers, flowers, rope, 
charms and added some of my own doilies, shells, netting etc. 
 This now hangs pride of placein my bathroom.

Saying it with Flowers!!!



Hello my dears,  I'm here to share my latest card using lots of
pretty elements from The Craft Box.  This is the April
box and it came with lots of pretty Prima papers, flowers, seashells, gems, chipboard shapes and some gorgeous lace appliqué.



I heat embossed shabby chic antique rose frantage the white paper leaves and used just thick white frantage powder to the chipboard element which I cut in half and used as a flourish.



The cutest little iridescent glass seashells are peeking out 
in various places and the lace appliqué was cut in half to 
give a little more dimension to the card. 
 I'm really quite pleased with the end results.  

Thank you so much for popping in to visit.

Wishing you all a wonderful day.
