More Than Words

Hello everyone, 

I have something a little different than my usual card.  Pion Design are sponsoring the More Than Words challenge blog this month so my project is following this month's theme.  The Word Inspiration is "JOURNEY" and the Creative Challenge is a "MAP".  I decided to combine them both into my canvas.

When thinking about the journey my mind wondered to my Dad.  He was a soldier in the World War II and this was the only time that he travelled ever in his entire life.  He visited Singapore, India and beyond.  Once he returned from the War he never set foot back on a plane.  It makes you think of what soldiers went through and indeed still do.  He didn't like to talk about it at all and in fact until my Father's funeral service I didn't even know he had been shot in the leg.  So my project for me was to include a map of the world in recognition of the only journey my dad took  in his lifetime.  I hope you like it.

I used Pion Design's The World Awaits collection of papers, if you are interested in these please email me.

I had great fun working on this canvas.  My picture is framed in a Prima frame.  All products listed at the bottom of the page.

Happy 21st

Hi everyone,

I'm sharing a card I made recently for my niece using LDRS Creative Lovely Lilac's 6x6 paper pad.  The image is called Sending Wishes stamped out using the hybrid ink Raven.  All links as usual are at the end of this post.

I used the LDRS Versatile Windows and Doors.  I can see many uses for this die set.  New home,  Christmas and Birthdays to name but a few.

I added lace behind the windows and panels in the door :)

I used the Lampost and Railings die set  You can see the lampost to the left in the above picture.

The railings can be see to the right with meadow spray and 20mm open roses and Scrapiniec branches.

I just love the little envelopes, so cute.

You will find all the products in the Crafteezee Shop.

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 :)
