Hi friends,
hope you are well

Today I'm sharing a card made from the Santoro
 Gorjuss Girls paper collection.
This side-board easel card was so easy to make!

Here I have adhered co-ordinating paper to the three panels
that make up the whole card.

Next, I made a smaller panel to create a
stopper to hold the easel part
of the card upright.

Here, I have added large grey metallic pearls to
this side of the card and added a butterfly
embellishment, using pop-dots
to give it some added dimension. 

Thanks once again for stopping by

Halloween treat holders

Hi friends, 
hope you are well!

Here are some more Halloween projects that
I've been working on.

They are spooky treat holders, which are packed full of sweet treats!
Perfect for giving out to trick or treaters or 
for someone special.

All of these treat holders have been made 
using black card stock,
Which I cut into a large tag size.

I used an Xcut corner punch on both sides
and adhered these spook-a-liscious papers
from the Carta bella 'All Hallows Eve
paper range. I then made a pocket from
black card and adhered that to the bottom of the tag.


   At the top of the tags I punched a hole using
    my green crop-o-dile, then tied different 
    coloured ribbons through it. I also attached
    silver charms to these.

  On these two tags I have adhered a skull 
  cameo from Jolee's Boutique. The numbers
  are from the Tim Holtz gothic Boo die. 
  which i applied black diamond stickles to. 


These two tags are made in exactly the same way,
the papers are from the same designer range.
Here I have used some cut outs from the lost
and found collection and the spider webs were
cut from a Martha Stewart punch. I have also
used brads to attach the caution sign.
Finally, I bought some spooky candy and wrapped 
them in cello bags, which have been tied with matching ribbon.       

Thanks for stopping by,
Happy Hauntings!

Spooky Halloween altered frame

 Hi friends,
hope you are well!

I can't believe that Halloween will soon be upon us.
I don't know about you, but to me, this year seems to have flown by?

My daughter is a huge fan of Halloween, in fact, it's her favourite
time of year apart from Christmas!

I wanted to make Lilli something spooky, so when i saw this photo frame
it was perfect!

The lenticular photo is super cool 

Here I have made my own flowers using a flower punch and
 red card stock. The larger flower has been made
using the Tim Holtz tattered florals die.

First, I adhered two black luxury feathers to the left side of the
frame and then adhered the spray 
of flowers on top of them. 
I also added grey flat back pearls to the centre
of each red flower.

Next, I cut out a Halloween sentiment from the one of 
the pages from the 'My minds eye lost and found'
Halloween paper collection.

The snake goblet is from Jolee's Boutique.

Lastly, I adhered two black pearls onto the top right and 
bottom of the frame. 

Thanks once again for stopping by.

Happy Hauntings!

Shabby Chic card

Hi friends,
Hope you are well!

Today I'm sharing another shabby chic card 
that I recently made.

As you probably know by now, i adore anything shabby chic and vintage!

I just love these gorgeous papers by Lemoncraft
they are so dreamy and romantic.

Here I have used a blank white card and I adhered 
a sheet of designer vintage script paper 
from my own craft stash.

Next, i used a sheet of paper from the 'house of roses' collection
and adhered it to the centre of the card.

Then i used half a sheet of 6x6 paper from the same collection 
and adhered it to the right hand side of the card
to create a layering effect.

I then used a small strip of matching paper and adhered 
it to the bottom of the card, 
All papers have been distressed using the edge of 
my scissors and Vintage photo distress ink. 

Here i have used an image of a vintage lady from
the Maja Design vintage autumn basics paper collection,
which i then framed using a wooden frame from my own stash.

I then adhered that onto the centre of the card.

Next, I adhered mulberry paper roses, pink pearls and a delightful wooden
 birdhouse, which i painted with white gesso.

The butterflies have been fussy cut and sprinkled
with Pinflair ice diamond.

Thanks once again for stopping by 
to take a look at my blog,
It really does mean a lot to me and
is much appreciated.

Life in a snapshot design team challenge

Hi friends,
hope you are well!
I have some super exciting news to share with you all!
I have been chosen to be a part of the wonderful Life in a snapshot design team 
and I am so very honoured.

Here is a picture of the sketch that I had to work towards.

Here is my first layout that i have designed, I wanted to give it a vintage feel,
so I have used a variety of Tim Holtz papers to create a collage.

The papers are from the collage paper stash and they are wonderfully grungy and vintage.

Here i have used a photo of the Mona Lisa 
which i adhered onto the main sheet to act as a focal point.
I then stamped the word smile using some letter stamps from my own stash 
onto some kraft card stock and then i used glossy accents
to give them some added interest. 

I have loved making this layout
hope you like it too?! 
I would love to know what you think, so if you'd like to leave
 a comment, it would be very welcome.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look,
