Another shabby chic bird card

Hi guys, I'm here today to show you another card I've made with the latest In the Garden Collection from Tracy over at Noor Design UK
I love this kit with some of the gorgeous Pion papers The Songbirds Song 6"x 6" included,

I layered my papers adding a paper doily, different papers sheets, some gorgeous lace from
 The Ribbon Girl, and some of the embellishments from some of the kits off tracy,
I took the gorgeous resin frame and altered it using  some Frantage in aged Ivory, onto this I added the birds nest, birds and flowers fussy cut out of the papers, I also used some of the natural fibres and some of my flowers from my stash,
The metal leaf came from another of the kits,
I finished it off with a butterfly and the Happy Birthday text from one of the 12 x 12 papers I had bought off Tracy, some seam binding, and some of the Ivy chipboard from the latest Kit too,
Deep Ocean - add lace
The Ribbon Girl - add any image

Thanks for looking,
happy Crafting!!

Love you!!!

Hi guys, I'm here today showing you a little blog inspiration using
Little Birdie which is one of the latest releases from
I think this image would  be fabulous for a Wedding Anniversary,
I coloured it with my distress re-inkers and cut  it out using a die,
I used some Galeria paper - The Cricket on the Hearth, using both sides of the paper, I  distressed the edges too and machine sewed the edges,
A little twine, and some of the fabulous overlapping hearts panel chipboard from Crafty enjoyments finishes it off,
Don't forget to check out our blog challenge here and we also have them on Face Book too,

Spring is on it's way!!

Well this weather has been so mild here, all the flowers are showing and the birds were looking at the bird boxes the other day,
I've not had a lot of crafting time recently but I have managed to make this,
I made it using some of the gorgeous Pion Design The Songbirds Secret, so love these papers!!
I cut out the large tag off one of the sheets and layered it onto another of the papers which I trimmed into shape then added some lace behind and slightly raised it up with 3D foam,
I fussy cut out the nest, branch with flowers, extra flowers and birds then layered them up again to make it 3D,

I again used some of the fabulous wooden fence which was in the in the garden collection from Tracy at Noor Design UK, this time I have kept it plain and just added some cut out butterflies again from one of the paper sheets,
These kits are available to order each month and I love that you get a surprise every time you open them, as you don't know what's in the kit till you get them,
I used one of the sentiments adding some cut out flowers on each end, a little liquid pearl is added on the middle of each flower,
Tegans back at school this week so hopefully I will find some time to craft and catch up with you guys,
Happy Crafting!!

Until You Spread Your Wings

Hi guys, were back today with our latest challenge over at
as usual it's anything goes as long as you use a All Dressed Up image, you can of course use some of the freebies available too,
This time I have used Magical Woodland as the image on my card,
I started colouring this with my distress inks, but for some reason the printer ink which is supposed to be waterproof has lost it's goodness or something as it now bleeds when I put water near it, not a good look I can tell you, so I printed it out again and coloured it with my copics, adding a little frantage around the image too,
the papers are from Pion Design which I bought from Tracy,
I thought this went fantastically with the image and was off one of the Pion sheets, I just edged it with a little distress ink, then added a eyelet and some seam binding again off Tracy,
The little charm is from The Ribbon Girl and I added a little Snowtex here and there too,
this is my second post today, as I posted one this morning for Craftyenjoyments, take a peek if you wish, lol
Happy Crafting!!

A very Special Vintage

It's time to Celebrate!!!!
It's my turn again for some inspiration for Craftyenjoyments
It's my next door neighbours  80th Birthday, so I couldn't resist making a card for him,
I got the template for the bottle off the internet, then used some of my papers from stash, I printed out the text on my computer then layered up the pieces using some 3D pads,
I took the fabulous Balloons chipboard and the Digits, covered them with a glue pen then added some snowflake tinsel embossing powder on top, then heat set them,
This added a hint of sparkle to the design of my card too,
Balloons - 0587 Cardboard

Digits - 0738 Cardboard

Well I hope this has shown you another way to decorate your chipboards and show they are fab for mens cards too,
Happy Crafting!!
