Moments to Remember

Hi All, so I decided to make an Album.  I decorated all the chipboard pages, leaving the backs plain to add photo's later and any journaling to be added to the decorated pages.   I have used the beautiful Pion Design Days Gone By.  All the links for the products used are as always, at the end of the post.

The Flowers on the front are made from Foamiran, distress inks for coloration, vintage matt white stamens and the Whimsy Hellbore Die Set.

I used a couple of Stempleglede Stamps.  One of them you can see the flourish on the right hand side of the page.  I also added a butterfly and pen nib.

I made the envelope using a Dutch Doobadoo template and either journaling or another photo can be added in here.

Hope you like it :)

Yay it's Friday and I am sharing another card with you. This time made with lots of LDRS Dies and the cute image "Pick your own Tea".  I have coloured her with..... wait for it.... Copics.  Yikes I know it's been years since I picked them up and it was quite scarey.  I have mislaid my distress inks since Christmas so whilst waiting for new brushes to turn up and I decided to dust off the Copics.

The papers are from LDRS Time for Tea paper pad.  I added some Lace Delphine to the bottom of the card.

I used the Dotted Wings for the butterfly border and individual butterfly.

I Love using the SMILE word with shrink plastic.  You can see it just under the kettle charm.

Lots of gorgeous flowers, all listed below.

 I used the leaf die from the Grace Build A Card Die Set for the leaves cut on Pion Design Palette Green II.

Hope you like it:)

Making Memories

Hello everyone,.

I hope all the Mum's out there had a great day yesterday.  I got some craft time in and this is the result.  I have used the most beautiful papers, Pion Design's Days Gone By.  My base layer and die cuts are using the Pion Palette Dusky Pink II and Green II.

I used the Magnolia Doohickey lacey envelope die to create the openwork filagree corner.

I made the Hellebores flowers using White Foamiran, Whimsy Stamps Hellebores die set and violet tipped stamens.  I also added an acryplic stamp Paris but gave it a whitewas with gesso.

I added some green moss inbetween the flowers, meadow spray and pixie blooms, with a little gesso of course :)  Finished with a vintage seam binding bow and pearl string.

 The Joycraft Butterfly border will be back in stock this week.  If you would like to reserve one, please contact me :)

The mini envelope is from a Magnolia Doohickey, you can pre-order Vol 19 and Vol 20 currently and you will find them HERE.  All other links can be found below.

Hope you like it.

Hello Crafters, I haven't coloured in a while, mainly because I seemed to have lost my inks, lol.  How you ask?  I don't know...... I haven't seen them since Christmas, so I don't know if they have been mistakenly put away with the decorations or if they have been thrown up with alot of sorting out I did....  anyway, during my search I found this little lady, which I coloured up before Christmas, lol.  She is an LDRS Creative image by Polkadoodles called "Tea-riffic" and is currently on SALE!  Yes, SALE!  All links at the end of the post.

I used the Fancy Circles, Allifair Build a card, Fancy Rectangles and Layers all by LDRS Creative as well as the image Tea-riffic and the Afternoon Tea paper pad

Of course it wouldn't be a card by me if I didn't add some embellishments, right?  So we have a Fantasy Chipboard Borders, more on the way, Twigged shabby white heart, Little Love teapot charm, wax cord in white, hybrid tea roses, meadow spray in white, rose buds, minature gardenia, pixie blooms.  I also used the flower die from the Allifair build a card die set to make a little flower and added a pearl centre.

I added medium 3D balls.

Hope you like it :)

Decorated Biscuit Tin

Hello everyone.  I saved this biscuit tin from Christmas with decorating it in mind.  It was fun for sure and I love the result :)  Of course the papers used are by Pion Design, Our Furry Friends and Days Gone By collections.

Isn't the image just so adorable.  This is from the image sheet from the Our Furry Friends collection.

I added the new scalloped pearl with rhinestone trim to the top and bottom of the tin.

The image was layered onto a diecut from the LDRS Label set cut from Pion Palette White II and then edged with pearl trim.

Below is a side view.  I cut two strips from the a day to remember sheet and placed at the top and bottom.

This is the other side.  I added lace butterflies and lots of gorgeous embellishments, all listed below.

The light was reflecting a little too much on the top but you can see I added paper, pearl trim and a cut out butterfly from the borders sheet from the Days Gone By collection.

The leaves were cut using Palette Green III.

I hope you like it :)

Love Much & Laugh Often

Hello everyone,

Tracy here posting a card made using the gorgeous Pion Design Our Furry Friends collection.  It's actually a birthday card for my Daughter this week, so I hope she likes it :)

Isn't the image adorable. I added a shabby white bark heart to the right and added 3 x 10mm open roses.  The text was from the Days Gone By Borders sheet, as were the butterflies.

A close up of the bouquet of flowers using Spirals, rose buds, hybrid tea roses, tropical blossoms, 25mm and 10mm open roses finished with a wax cord bow.  I used the Pion Green I palette cardstock to cut the Fantasy Fern die.

I added a Wycinanka Bohemium border, Pearl heart with rhinestone trim and the NEW 1.5cm rose ribbon trim in Ivory.  A little heart wish bottle with a gorgeous butterfly next it.

Hugs Tracy

Days Gone By

Hi Everyone, Tracy here again sharing a card made with the oh so gorgeous papers from Pion Design's latest release "Days Gone By".

I used the NEW Joycraft Butterfly Edge 2 Die and cut it out using Pion Design's Palette cardstock in White II for the base and cut again from the paper.

 I used a Pion Design Grandma's Attic Springtime image and framed it using a Melissa Frances frame.

The Lace Alecon was perfect in colour for this collection of papers.

I added tripical blossom, hybrid tea roses and gardenia to the floral arrangement and finished with a wax cord bow.

The Tags at the top were cut out and a Woodware clip added to each that were placed into an envelope glued to the back of the top layer.

The shape was created from a previous Doohikey collection.

Hugs Tracy x
