Up & Away framelit basket and perfume bottle

It has been a while since I lasted posted on my blog, due to a hectic period of holidays and my husband being away with work again. However, I have been very busy in the background playing with new products from the up coming catalogue, planning my catalogue launch on 3rd June, creating new projects and delivering classes.

One thing I was playing with before Easter (yes its been that long!) was the 'Up & Away' thinlits. This product was quite unique and allowed for several projects to be made. Apart from the obvious hot air ballon, we made two alternative designs using the framelits, a basket and a perfume bottle!

It is amazing how diverse one set of framelits can be!

I will be back tomorrow with details of my catalogue launch on Saturday 3rd June.

So Detailed Anniversary Card

My Mum and Dad have recently celebrated their 56th Wedding Anniversary!! What a fabulous achievement and send them all my love.  Here is the card I made for them.

An easel card using the So Detailed thinlits in Blushing Bride and Whisper white colours.

As the succulent thinlits were out on my desk I created three flowers using  a couple of the smaller dies layered together.

I love these succulent dies and am rather sad they are retiring from the spring/summer catalogue, but if you are quick you may still be able to purchase them before they go forever (142757)

window shopping boxes

I am sharing a couple of projects we made in the class before the Easter break using one of my favourite bundles at the moment; the Window Box Thinlit dies. 

I gained the inspiration for making these boxes from Mitosu crafts and Jan B Cards and watching their You Tube videos and would like thank them for their excellent tutorials

Hexagonal base pop up card and hexagonal base box in So Saffron and Whisper White Colour combinations

We used the succulent framelits to make up the flower embellishment on top of the box

The hexagonal base pop up card folds flat for ease of posting 

We filled the hexagon shaped box with shredded paper and a creme egg yum yum!!

Beautiful You with long dress gatefold card

I have another card using the beautiful you stamp set to share with you. One of the great things about this set is that you can play around with the images to create lots of different styles of dresses.

 For the following cards, the bottom half of the stamp was masked off with a post-it note and the top half was then stamped with black stazon to create the top of the dress and with a black journal pen the lines from the waist were extended down to create a long dress.

The aquapainter was used with tempting turquoise ink to colour in the dresses and the three smaller flowers and a little wink of stella to make the dress sparkle.

Three larger flowers were die cut from the succulent framelits in pink and added as embellishments with a pearl in the centre
