Hi Everyone,

I have been playing with the LDRS Lovely Lilac's 6x6 paper pad, Victorian Border and I did colour up an LDRS image but the papers were so beautiful that I decided to make an elegant card.

I didn't glue the border down totally as I wanted it appear open and the result in real life is beautiful.

I added some Scrainiec Alamor, a little gesso and cheesecloth and lots of gorgeous flowers and finished with a polka dot lilac bow and button Alexis.

I handcut two of the butterflies from another sheet in the paper pad

Hope you like it

Hello Summer

Hello Crafters,

I found some time to play yesterday with the NEW Pion Design Seaside Stories collection of papers and I just love the colours and the vintage images in this collection.

I have also used some of the NEW Scrapman Dies and I have to say they cut beautifully and they come on a magnetic sheet, so that's a bonus :)

I cut the image using the Srapman Die Frame    and used the inner section of the largest die.  I then cut the frame from the Pion Palette Pink II.  The Text is from the Bordrers sheet.

We had some NEW seashell pearl trim come in recently and I cut a few off to use as pearl seashells for this card, perfect!

I used the Scrapman  Leave cut from Pion Palette   Blue, love this die.  I have also added some fisherman's net, cut out a few of the seashells from the border sheet and added an anchor.

I also diecut some Scrapman Die Leaves and I can't tell you how fabulous these not only cut but the detail without even embossing.

I used another Scrapman Die, Flower   and made some Foamiran Flowers using Foamiran 0.6 in white and LDRS Inkpads in Boy Blue and
 I added a star shaped wish bottle filled with sand from my lovely friend who lives near the sea :)

Hope you like it.

Vintage Box

Hello Crafters,

So today I am sharing with you a vintage box made using papers by Pion Design's Days Gone By collection of papers and Dusty Rose II Pion Palette cardstock.  Actually it was a box that my hand soap came in from the White Company and I decided to decorate it.

Lots of Foamiran Flowers using 0.8 and 0.6 and using the Whimsy Peony Die and the Whimsy Rose Petal Die Set.  A couple of 25mm open roses and a pink bon bon to finish the mix.

 We had some new pearl trims arrive into store this week and of course it would of been rude not to use one of them.  This one alternates with a rhinestone centre in every other pearl and just perfect for my project.   I used one of the new laces, Olivia.

Ummmm, these little vintage feet also arrived into store so was perfect to prop my box up and give it that elegant finish.

I added Sisal in natural and a Selena lace bow finished with a circular floral button.

I added some 3D balls, gesso, Joycraft lace butterfies with a pion butterfly cut from the Days Gone By Borders sheet.  The image is from Pion Design's Grandma's Attic Little Sweeties.

Hope you like it :)

Little Kittens

Hello Everyone,

Today's card is for my Sister's birthday.  These adorable kittens look soooo cute.  My sister has one cat and one kitten although Hugo is a very very naughty kitten and gets up to all sorts of mischief.  I used Pion Design's Our Furry Friends collection, links at the bottom as usual.

The Kittens are framed with Scrapinic Royal Window, love these windows.  I cut butterflies from the Borders sheet.  The leaves were cut with Pion Palette Green V and gesso added.  I added lots of flowers and finished with an organza bow which I heated with my heat gun to shrink and curl it.

The tag was cut from Pion Design's Days Gone By Tags.  

Amongst the floral display I used Twizzles in white and stretched them out a bit.

I used one of the beautiful Rhinestone Butterflies and new Lace finished with a string of pearl sunflowers.

Hope you like it :)

Flowers at Crafteezee-Shop Challenge

Hello everyone,

Happy Easter!  It's challenge time at Crafteezee-Shop and the theme for this month is "Flowers".  I have used the gorgeous Pion Design's Days Gone By collection of papers.

I have used the NEW Craft and You Stitched Base Frames 1 for the shape.

I used the NEW Scrapiniec Alamor small borders and placed at the top and bottom of the vintage image.

The leaves were cut using Pion Design Palette Green I and Rosy Owl Trailing Leaves.

I made the Peony from White Foamiran and coloured using Oil Pastels and added vintage matt olive green stamens.  I added Matt Clusters in lilac, 15mm open roses and rose buds in the floral display.

Hope you like it.

Summertime and All Aboard

Hello Everyone,

I am sharing two cards to share with you today.  If you was lucky to get the Making Cards magazine this month you would of seen this card already and I am certainly looking forward to some sun this summer following all the recent snow :)

 I have used Maja Design Summertime papers, just love these.
 I made some Foamiran Flowers using Silver Lustre and white.  
 I added frantage to the diecut butterfly.

My second card I made using Pion Design's NEW paper collection the World Awaits.  I loved cutting up all the different papers to add lots of details.

Hope you like them both
