My A5 Lever Arch File Transformed

Morning Everyone,

I have been having such fun this week decorating a plain old A5 Lever Arch File.  I keep all my A5 Stamps, Dutch Doobadoo Shape Art Stencils, Dutcch Doobadoo A5 Masks in here and I thought it could do with brightening up, so Dutch Doobadoo to the rescue, lol.

I first painted the file with Dutch Doobadoo Gesso and used  the A5 Grunge mask and Structure Paste to add the pattern randmonly.

I have added a Dutch Doobadoo MDF Door to the centre and first painted with Gesso and then added some Tim Holz Crackle Rock Candy.

You can see the vintage findings keyhole at the bottom left.

I used the Dutch Doobadoo Alphabet Stencil 3 for the word CRAFT going down the spine.

The Numerals on the door are available from Live and Love Crafts.

I have added a few softwood bricks here and there.

The key that goes with the keyhole is on the right hand side.

You can really see the crackle in the door in this picture.

Hope you like it :)

The World is my Oyster

Good morning,

It's bank holiday Monday here in the UK and I'm having a lay in for a change this morning.  As it's Monday it's time to share my LLC card and this week the theme set is, "The World is my Oyster", so basically whatever I like :)  I have chosen Pion Design's My Precious Daughter collection to play with and I didn't want to cover up the beautiful flowers on the Anemone sheet so my task was to work around it.

The shape was made using the Dutch Doobadoo Shape Art Tag and I have added the floral edge to both sides for the elegant look :)

I cut the text panel out and adhered to the top right and added one of the gorgeous Pion Design butterflies from the border sheet.

You can also see a close up of the frosted ponegranates.

I also added poppies, 30mm wild rose, flower sprays in white and pink and orchids to the bouquet

Another Pion Design butterfly and also a bronze butterfly.

I added two types of lace to the bottom of the card

I also tied a lace bow, added string pearls and some of that gorgeous shabby seam binding that Sandy stocks.

Hope you like it.
