Birthday wishes

Hi guys, I'm here today for my DT post for 
with a Birthday card I have made for my next door neighbour, she loves flowers, so I have made some by hand in a lovely bright colour, adding some micro beads in bronze for the centres,
I used the gorgeous Music letters papers by lemon craft for  the background, distressing the edges and layering up the middle section with 3D foam,
I used a spellbinders die for the fancy square then layered a Scrapiniec chipboard circle frame on top, this I coloured lightly with vintage photo distress ink then I added a stamped image behind from my stash,
I then also used some more chipboard from the Far East 02 collection, again coloured the same way,

Do check out these gorgeous chipboards and all the beautiful papers and embellishments Monika has in her store,
It's my 36th Wedding Anniversary today, so catch you all later!!
Happy Crafting!!

Celebrate the Romance

Hi guys, over at the  craft heaven shop inspiration blog we have this weeks theme which is
Celebrate the Romance
Well I have made a card for my hubby for our 36th wedding Anniversary, which is on Tuesday
I used a couple of the latest gorgeous Maja design papers, so love this Vintage Romance collection!!!
I kept to this  monochrome colour way as I think it's fab for men!!
I cut out the hearts with some spellbinders die cuts and on the center I stamped a text stamp by magnolia, layered one half over the top of the other with some foam pads, then placed one of the  fabulous Melissa Frances resin banners over the top too,
The lovely Lace adds a fantastic finishing touch, along with the little key charm and flowers, as usual all links below,

Dreams Of A Garden

Hi guys, I'm here today again with another project I have made as guest for Scrapiniec,
this time I felt like making a 3D project and so I have made a watering can and flowers and leaves  out of some of the  beautiful Maja design papers,

I used one of the gorgeous papers to make the watering can itself from The vintage Romance collection - to be with you,
I used the Maja Design May  Mood Board as my inspiration for the colours / theme  etc,
On the body of the watering can I added some lace then a small rosette from the
 Doily Lace collection, coloured lightly with a little distress ink,on top of this I added a Doo Hickey die flower made out of  some vintage Autumn basics paper, I then made some more flowers out of some Vintage spring papers,

I used one of the gorgeous Scrapiniec chipboards from the Ivy collection to trail down the main body too, this I kept in it's natural colour,

I then added a chipboard piece on the handle and spout from the Spring Prodigy wreath 1 collection, these were given the distress ink treatment too,

The Mood Board had a gorgeous quote written on it so I printed it out on my computer and added it as a embellishment on the top of the watering can,

Here is the gorgeous Maja Design Mood Board

Hope you like it,
Happy Crafting!!
