Botanicabella Botanist

Just popped by to share a project I made using the fabulous Botanicabella collection from Graphic 45 - sent to me by the lovely peeps at Jones Crafts.
I decided to alter a book box and make it into a little keepsake box which may have belonged to a Victorian botanist.

Inside I made a mini album notebook out of grunge board and the papers where the botanist could make notes and keep samples of his finds. I also created a little pin board on the inside of the box where he could store pictures and cuttings, and I even added some littlepaper butterfly samples - collected just as a Victorian would have done. 

I hope you like my little project. I love decorating the box to look like a book!
Many thanks and bye for now

It really is lovely and perfect for making gift boxes.

Anyway hope you like it.

A Little Bit Nordic

Hi Everyone!
Back with a little card and gift tag I made with one of the fab stamps sets in the Crafter's Companion Nordic Christmas range.

I love the images and papers in this collection and think they work really well with Kraft card and embossed Centura Pearl card. I coloured the images with my Spectrum Noirs and fussy cut them out, before embellising with buttons, twine, ribbon and Die'sire Classique Snowflake die cuts.

Hope you like them!
I'd like to enter them into the following challenges:

Lullaby Lovelies

Afternoon All!
Today I'd like to share a card and gift bag I made with the lovely Butterfly Lullaby papers from Sara Davies' Signature Collection.

These papers really are lovely and I decided to fussy cut some of the images to use as embellishments.
The card was made on an 8x8 card base, layering with Coredinations Mauve card and black card. I raised all the images with Collall 3D Glue Gel.

I then decorated inside to match - the embossing folder is Crafter's Companion Embossalicious Delicate Floral.

The little bag was also made with papers and the elements layered on the front. I also added glitter, ribbon and pearl pen.

Anway, hope you like this little set - thanks for popping by!

World's Fair Trio

Afternoon Folks!
Today I thought I'd share some projects I have made using the fabulous Graphic 45 'World's Fair' collection, sent to me by the lovely people at Jones Crafts.
I first decided to make a 5.5 x 5.5 inch card from Kraft card and cut images from the papers to create a male themed design. The original A4 piece of Kraft card that I used had a spare bit left over so I then made a tag to match.

In my stash I also had a blank Kraft notebook so I decided to decorate that too so I had a little gift to match.

I hope you like my little trio as much as I enjoyed creating them. Thanks for popping by!

I'd like to enter my trio in the following challenge:

Beautiful Bauble

Evening Crafters!
Just thought I'd pop by and share an easel card I made using the A6 Bauble Create a Card Die from Crafter's Companion. These dies are so easy and effective to use. I teamed up my Coredinations cardstock with Centura Pearl and silver mirri card, and also used the die to emboss the image on the bottom layer of the card.
Hope you like it! xx
