Fab FRIDAY...

Hiya Everyone
Friday at last

Today is a bit of an anxious one for me, I have a very important meeting that I need to go in my favour for Nialls Schooling - *sigh* it is all such a fight for the basic right of the correct education, Bless my boy I wont STOP untol he gets what he needs

I have some more of the fabulous Spring and Summer dies to share with you today :)
Have you been peeking at my teamies makes over on Facebook and Twitter, amazing huh?!
I love the idea that these can build up scenes, they are such fun to play around with, I used coredinations cardstock on this one, and from the NEW dies I have used - Bunting, Bike, Bench, Clouds, and the Trellis Fence - I used one of the embossilicious petite dots folder and some centura pearl, I cut an aperature in my card base and covered it with some acetate. The pearls are from my stash. I wanted the outside to be inside, if that makes sense lol.


This one I love the pastel tones, I also used some of the new stamps, from the NEW dies I used the rolling hills landscape, the church and some bunting, I covered behind the church windows with acetate and used an aquamarker to give them a stained glass look, I sprinkled some glitter over the stamp and added some pearls. 

Don't forget to check out the facebook and twitter pages for inspiration from my teamies

New dies...

Hello Friends

Hope you are all ok :)

You can never ever have too many dies right?!
Especially when they can build up scenes
Leann will be on Create and Craft this weekend with some FAB NEW Spring and Summer dies
and they are amazeballs :)

You will find heaps of goodies over in the Crafters Companion Shop

Today I have a couple of makes to share using some of these new dies

This one is a little different to my usual style, but I do love it. The birdie and sentiment is from the Vintage Collection CD Rom, the embellies are from my stash. The numbers are from Die'sire, as is the quilling flower. The NEW dies are the flourish in the corner, the bunting, the clockhands which is a birdhouse and the cloud :) I inked all edges with a little ink and the embossing folder is from the Barkley collection. I hope you like it :) 

This one I think is my absolute FAVE! I have used from the NEW dies the 4 seasons tree and the rolling landscape, which I cut the trees from, the sentiment is from the NEW stamps, embellies from my stash. This tree is amazing! It comes with different leaves and blooms which you can make up as you choose, I coloured vellum with an aquamarker and then ran it though my Ebosser lots and lots, then used a balltool in the vellum to give them some dimension and stuck them to my tree, I love the way it looks :)

Create a Card...

Hiya Everyone
Happy Weekend

Today I have a couple of cards to share using the FAB Create a Card Dies
You will find these along with lots of other goodness over in the Crafter's Companion Shop
This first one is Daisy Dreams, it is so pretty. It is also one of the new range recently launched, I overlayed it over some pale lilac card and then on to contrasting black, I cut the centre several times to fold them up on each other, and I added lots of pearls :)

This is the gorgeous Happy Birthday (female) design, the male design has stars on it. I added embellies from my stash and edged it with pearls. I used distress inks through the die to show the embossing. 

If you dont have one of these dies, try one, they really are stunning

Basketweave...

Monday?!
AGAIN...
ALREADY...

Still its my little girlies Birthday tomorrow, so that is something to look forward too

Today I am here to share a couple of boxes I have made :)
The Texture folder I used was Basketweave...
There is a joke inside that name somewhere but its wasted on me lol
You can check out the designs over in the Crafter's Companion Shop

Two boxes, same design, two diff colourways...

Here is a pretty pretty colour way I love this, you could add in any little gift you want, choccys at Easter time, or just as a thankyou, I used a Birthday sentiment from Halycon days (I believe) and papers from crafter's companion Cd roms - I used the Basketweave folder over acetate and made my box using the big score, that makes life so super duper easy!

The next colourway is a bit more lively

The elements on this one came from the Sweet Treats CD Rom

Hope you like them, Thanks for popping by
