New Release at Crafts and Me - Annabelle

If your looking for my Candy please Click HERE

Morning Everyone,

I have another little sneak peek for you today from the artist Hannah Lynn, just love Hannah's work, so beautiful.  This little lady is called Annabelle and will be available to order as soon as Teresa gets them loaded onto the website, but I think she's probably still recovering from the show on Sunday, lol.

I have coloured Annabelle on the Stamping Linen which is also available from Crafts and Me, but we nearly sold out, so Teresa literally only has a handful left, so if you are interested, send her an email.

My card also fits our new challenge at Crafts and Me which is Dies/Punches.  I have used a few, nothing new I hear you say, lol.  I have used the Tim Holtz on the edge butterfly die, and two new dies, the Memory Box Bow and the Cherry Lynn Mini Fanciful Flourish, all links are below as usual.

I have also used the airdry clay that is available at Crafts and Me, so easy to use and the last time I demo'd this at a show we also sold out.  Anyway, I made a little keyhole, so cool.

The beautiful lace is from the Ribbon Girl, gorgeous.

Tilda With Wooden Spoon


Hope you all had a good weekend and thank you to all my friends who popped by to say hello at the Crafts and Me stand at Stamperama yesterday, it was good to see you all.

It's the start of a new theme at Live and Love Crafts and the theme this week is another favourite of mine, "Pearls". My mojo went walkabouts this week so this card has taken me almost a week to complete,  I kept going back to it and not liking what I had done and I eventually ended up with more or less my original layout, grrrr. I have used PionDesigns Cornflower 6 x 6 and I didn't want to cover up the cornflowers at the bottom left and also wanted to keep the frame so I haven't layered up as much as I would normally but I think I like the result.  I created the base of the card using MayaDesign Vintage Summer 1935.

I have painted Tilda with Distress Inks and edged all the layers with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  I have used the new White Flower Sprays again with the Magnolia Berries and Kort and Godt Rolled Flowers and Chrysanthemums and added some gorgeous Pearl String, love these.


I also introduced some Frantage Shabby Blue Embossing powder to the Butterfly and here's a close up so you can really see how fabulous this embossing powder is.  It has a hint of blue, white and gold and looks gorgeous in real life.  Sandy should be listing a few colours imminently, so keep checking the store. A word of warning though if you decide to emboss metal, make sure you leave it to cool down before handling as it gets very hot.

I also decorated the inside, bottom left of the collage below,  and gave the floral ovals the Shabby Blue embossing treatment, love the effect.

Tilda Tvi Tvi Tvi


Thank you for all your kind comments on my post on Monday and emails behind the scenes. I have another card for you today, it's a magnolia called Tvi,Tvi Tvi and is available at BunnyZoe, all links below the post as usual.

Now I'm not normally an orange person but the new Kaisercraft Flora Delight 6.5" paper pad has some gorgeous papers in and also matching diecuts at the back, so I've gone with the colours and added some orange flowers with a touch of white gesso, well it toned it down a little, hahaha, and I actually love the result.  I'm not saying it's turned me completely, but I do like the outcome of this card.  Anyway these new pads are 6.5" square which is great if you like using the Go Kreate dies to create the bases.

I'm also loving the new Kaisercraft sentiments.  You saw the smile one on the money wallet last week and today I have used another one, Always remember if you smile the world smiles back, love it.

Have  a good day and hopefully I'll be back tonight to add some candy....

Alma's Sewing Room


Where did the weekend go? Saturday was a blur, had one of those in and out days during the day, food shopping and visiting MIL and then I had my Sister's family for dinner and I made cupcakes and a roulade so spent 4 hours in the kitchen and had sore feet by the end of the evening.  Dear Hubby did all the clearing up, bless him. It's my Daughter's 21st, so another busy week for me.  I'm behind with commenting, but hope to get caught up in my lunch hours this week.

It's a new week and a new theme for the DT girls at Live Love Crafts and today starts a new theme, which is definitely a favourite of mine, and the Teams, yayyyyy it's "Pion Design, Alma's Sewing Room".

The image is from the 12x12 Image sheet and  I have used both sides of Blue Fabric 12x12. I cut the blue ticket out of the Images 12x12 sheet and tucked it under the floral oval and also cut out circles from the 12x12 tags.  All have been distressed with gesso and walnut stain distress ink.

 For the inside I have used the Blue Room 6 x 6.  I created a pocket on the left hand side and used the 12x12 Borders to edge the top of the pocket and added some gorgeous crotched cream  lace. The tags were created using the Images 12x12 and Tags 12x12.

On the right hand side I added one of the new charms and the new Resin Cameo.

And here's the back of my card using the Ladies Wardrobe 12x12.
