Exciting News and Bumper Candy

Hello Everyone,

I have lots to tell you so I apologise for the lengthy post.  I do have some yummy candy and some new classes to tell you about in the UK and Norway, so bear with me until the end :)

First I'd like to share with you my MDF Album that I have made as as special gift to a friend.  I have used the Dutch Doobadoo MDF Frame and all the products for Live and Love Crafts and Noor!DesignUK will be in the thumbnails at the bottom of the post.

I sooooo love how this turned out.  Sandy has given us LLC Girls a theme of Hugs as it's National Hug Day this week, I didnt know that day existed, lol.  So I have lots of pictures of my friend hugging, lol.

Here's the front.  I have used the MajaDesign papers again, can you tell I like these.  I have used Strolling Down the Canal and Sitting at the Dock 12x12.  I have also cut the butterflies from the paper.

I used the Dutch Doobadoo Heart Mask with Structure Paste to the right hand side, love this stuff soooo much and used the structure paste on the bottom left, but used the chicken wire mask.

The Flower arragement is made up of a large Prima Flower and made up with Hortesanias, 10mm roses, rose buds and kort and godt flowers.

I used the MDF Frame and also the Stencil so the papers matched and could be layered.

The main text panel was created using text from the Clear Stamp English Sayings Set and then I used 

The little hugs and kisses underneath the text is from the Carpe Diem Die Set.

This is page one.  I have used the Butterfly Edge Die, Butterflies 2 pcs, Dutch Doobadoo Paper Art Bow with Shabby Pink Frantage and I have added a 20mm pink rose, a heart hanger and some vax cord.

I have also added some lasercut butterflies from the Dutch Doobadoo Paper art Butterflies to the centres and a couple dotted around.

I have also used the chicken wire stencil and structure paste and added some soft bricks.

The flower on the left is another NoorDesign gorgeous Flower Corner Die, embossed and then structure paste added.

I added some MajaDesign paper to the square of the frame and used it as a doily.  Beautiful. 

I have added a Ranger pen nib to the centre of the butterfly.

Bottom right I have stamped the grunge heart from clear stamp set Sending Love onto accetate and layered onto the panel.

 This is page 2.  This is my friend Nancy spending time with her family.

I have used my ladybug die on corrugated card at the top.  I used one of the small grunge stamps from the stamp set with gesso and stamped on the corner of the photo.  The With Love text stamp on the left is from the same set.

I have added a time paperclip and added a little gesso.

The beautiful daisy lace is new at Live and Love Crafts, another beauty.  I added a little clip to the top of the photo and some cheese cloth underneath.

I added a 30mm rose and added two types of leaf dies, links at the bottom.  Love love the Prima Resin frame, a firm favourite of mine.

I used the Dutch Doobadoo Heart Mask and Structure paste and added beads.  It was meant to be microbeads but I didn't have any in white or pink so beads it was, lol.  Love the effect and it looks far better in reality.


Page 3

Beautiful Prima flower taking centre stage of the floral arrangement and accompanied by flower spray, another must have on my list, 20mm roses, 5mm roses and some tiny rose buds and finished with a vintage flourish leaf and some gesso.  A prima zipper added and a little clay heart and also a wooden heart and of course a dashing of gesso.

The stamped word LOVE is also from the clear stamp set Sending Love.

Isn't the lace just the most beautiful lace and it's available in grey too.  Sandy hadn't listed them when I placed my order so I need more :)

Oh, did you notice the little lace heart, again another newbie to the LLC store.  I added a vax cord bow and little keys charm, oh so cute.

Page 4

Again the4 All We Need Is Love text stamp is from the sending love set and the gorgeous Filagree Heart is from the release. 

At the top is one of my most favourite border dies.  

I have used the name plate in brass and coated it with yep, more gesso and added pearls to each end.  Just 

I used the brick mask and structure paste in several places and added frantage fragments, love the texture.

The Friends text is from the clear stamp set English Sayings.  Just underneath this I have used the chandelier die which comes with the square frame seen earlier.  I have added a button jewel to the top of the chandelier, seemed fitting.

Nearly there, honest.  The Back Page.

Again the little ladybugs made their way out, lol.  

I added 3 tags to the pocket and tied a little teapot charm to them.  Nancy does like her tea:)

The pocket was created using the Envelope with Diamond Stencil.  

I used the small leave mask again with structure paste. I added a bark heart to the centre well centre-ish and added a butterfly
