It Started with a kiss...

Morning Everyone,

Hope you all had a good weekend, mine just doesn't seem to have enough hours in at the moment, mind you nor do the days of the week.

My mojo has gone walkabouts so instead of crafting and not enjoying it I have been having a good clear out.  I'm not sure it's done me any good as I now have  boxes of crafty goodies to sell and of course another job of photographing and I think I will arrange a facebook event to sell them, although there is sooooooo much, I might have to make it two events.

Anyway, as I was saying my mojo has upped and left me, so yesterday I thought what am I going to make for my LLC project today, ummmmm.  Well.... my favourite part is the decorating so I decided to put together my Dutch Doobadoo MDF Art Triptech.  Really easy.  I traced the shape onto my Pion Design Flower Frames papers Viola and Violaceus, marked and cut out the holes using my cropodile and this is the result. All the images are from the Pion Design LOVE 12x12 sheet. Ohhhhhhhh wait....., I have forgotten to tell you the theme that us girlies at Live and Love Crafts will be following..oops..... it's "spring". I know your looking at my project wondering where the spring is..   well.... for me spring is a time of lots of celebrations around, engagements and forthcoming weddings so my Tiptech tells a story.....

It Started with a kiss........ look at these two... oh so cute, right?

And the lightbulb has gone off and today's the day to ask that special lady....of course aided with a bouquet of flowers.

And now time to celebrate....

I added chunky white frantage and it looks like confetti to me, lol.  I also added some of the new crochet heart mini trim to the left of the image.

Here's a picture of the back.  I didn't want to put too many embellishments on the two sections on the right as they fold back against each other flat to fit in the box.

I used two Dutch Doobadoo Stencils, the honeycomb and bricks and used the white gesso

Below is a close up so I could show you the ranger bauble trinket hanging down from the first panel on the left and at the bottom you will see the wooden key with some shabby white frantage.  The flowers are the new purple decoration beads, chrysanthemum and 20mm rose.  The little tag is from the everyday sentiment sheet from LOTV.

My artsy view.  

I have also used the new orchids and carnations in the lilac/purple colours, I didn't waste any time, lol.

I also want to say that the lightbulb did have the word "ME" on but I etched it off with my fingernail.... Sshhhh, don't tell sandy.  

And I didn't want to leave without pointing out the little Big Ben clock charm attached with twine to Sandy's internationally famous vintage seam binding, oh sooo cute.

Shoreline Treasures Gift Bag

Hello Everyone,

Hope you are all having a great Easter, it all goes far too quickly, so I am going to enjoy today before I have to return to work tomorrow :(

The theme this week at LLC for the DT girls to follow is "Shoreline Treasures" by PionDesign and I have made a gift bag to go with the card I made last week for my Sister.

I have used Shoreline Treasures 12x12 Bottom of the Sea papers and also cut the image from  the matching image sheet and added a tag from the tag sheet. As well as the image I cut out the postcard and added that too, distressed the edges and added some walnut stain distress ink.

The fabulous honeycomb is from Dutch Doobadoo.  I also used the honeycomb stencil from Dutch Doobadoo but I seem to have covered alot of it up on the right hand side, ooops, but I will be using it again, love it.

I didn't waste any time in using some of the new arrivals in store, namely the tulips, carnation and white daisy and added some older ones too; frosted berries, sweet blossom.  I have also used some seashells as this release screams out for these :)  To the centre of the daisy I added the grandpa clock charm.

I added the new ruffle trim to the bottom of the bag.

Here's a close up of the image.  

I have added the Birthday die cut from the new Marianne Design BIRTHDAY collectables.  I have added some acrylic paint in blue and then some distress crackle paint

Here's the tag from the tag sheet and mounted onto cardstock.  I added the Wishes sentiment from the Marianne Design Collectables set and also the postage stamps from the Marianne Design postage mark stamp MAIL AROUND THE WORLD set.  I added twine and gesso.
