Recycled Box


Here we are again, another Monday and this week at LLC Sandy wants us to Recycle/Upcycle.  I was given a gift at Chrismtas, well actually a few and I generally save the packaging or boxes if I think they would be of use to me in the future and even the girls in my office tend to save things for me, lol.  I must have a reputation!  Anyway this box was black so I have chosen Pion Design's To My Valentine collection to decorate the box.

I added cream tulle around the edge along with pearl trim.

I used the 6x6 papers for the smaller pattern for the box.

Lots of flowers, die cut leaves and vintage flourish swirl heart to finish.  I added a seam binding and cord bow and added a pretty  to the centre.

I finished with pearl string.

I cut butterflies from the borders sheet.

Hand picked by Hedgy

Hello Everyone,

My card today features one of the CHA new release images from Little Darlings called "hand picked by Hedgy" by Candibean.

I have coloured the image with distress inks.  The papers are from the popular ROMANCE paper pad.

I used the Marianne Design Doily at the top left and added a floral arrangement adding vintage flourish leaves and vintage flourish heart with swirl diecuts, links at the bottom as always.  I added a little gesso.

I used the Dutch Doobadoo Pearl Pen to add clusters around the image.

I added my favourite butterfly border and used the butterfly from the heart with butterfly set and one of the butterflies from the butterfly (2pcs) set.

Miracle Love Tilda

Hi Everyone,

Can't believe today is the 1st of February, where does time go.  For all those who have asked Tim is doing really well , his creatinine level is the lowest it's been in 5 years and the new kidney is certainly doing it's job.  He has to go a couple of times a week to Addenbrooks for tests, which will continue for months to come, so let's hope they build a positive picture of the future.  Heather (donor) is also doing well and met up with my niece yesterday in Newcastle, boy will she regret that, lol.  Jemma can certainly talk and lives for food :)

Today is challenge day at Noor Design UK and this month it's all about ..... LOVE.

For my card I have used a Magnolia image called "Miracle Love Tilda" which is available from Noor Design UK, yayyyy.

It was a bit of a rush job for me, sigh.  I had good intentions yesterday of having a crafty day but I had forgotton how time consuming puppies can be.

I used the new clear stamp Doodles around the edges of the image, I really love these.  They are due back into stock today but you can still order whilst the stock says zero :)

The papers are from the "With Love" Paper Pad, these are seriously gorgeous.  Edged with a little gesso.

I added a Tim Holtz Hinge Clip to the top left.

Below you can see a close up of the doodle stamp in action, soooo cool.  I added white pearls in clusters using the Dutch Doobadoo Pearl Pen in white.

The flourishes on the small flower arrangement are from the Oval Die Set (4 pcs), links at the bottom.

I used the NEW "No borders".  This comes in a set of 3 and I have used them all on this card.  The XOXO die is from the Carpe Diem Die set.

Hope you can join us.
