New Page

I recently created this page using a photo that was taken of my daughters at a family wedding. They are growing up to be such pretty young ladies!  I do love them dearly :)  I gave the photo a vintage look using Photoscape, the background pattern is from Pink Petticoats' Elegant Swirls I think, the ribbon is from stash, the buttons were part of a lovely parcel I purchased from Melissa Philips through Etsy as was the string, the little angel wings I bought from someone on E Bay, I gave them a little spakle using Stickles glue, the stamped frame was done using a stamp from Papermanias Signature range,  the flower is from Prima and the punch used is from Cara Craft.

Thanks for looking

Happy Easter

Little card and gift box combo here, was feeling a little bored, started with a couple of bits of paper from My Minds Eye, Pretty Please collection and this was the finished product.  Little flowers are from Prima as are the flower centres, glitter is Stickles and the border was punched using my Martha Stewart punch, distressed up a bit with Tim Holtz, tattered rose ink.  The "Happy Easter" stamp is from Papermania and was head embossed using silver embossing powder from the Heat it up range.  The little box is made using a template from Lauren Meader and her My Time Made Easy collection.

Thanks for looking

Made using freebies!

Hi all,

Have'nt been on here in ages, had a bit of a break from crafting this last while back, just lost the taste for it I think but I'm feeling good that my interest has picked up again, we all need a distraction I think and this is a really healthy one!!!  Couple of springlike cards made using materials that came free with one magazine or another, the papers and little embellishments and sentiment came with Cardmaking Made Easy.  I love the colours here the pinks and greens mixed with a little yellow and white are refreshing after the dark days of winter!  They are produced by My Minds Eye from their Pretty Please collection.  Cute.  The little mice came as part of a Beatrix Potter collection free with Papercraft Inspirations I think, I like these as they go nicely with the vintage/shabby style i've fallen into.  Embossed flower is from Cuttlebug and the little gems are from Prima, distressed up a bit with Tim Holtz, Tattered Rose ink, which I use on nearly all my cards.  I love it.  Anyhoo, hope to show a few more bits and pieces soon, its lovely to see the great creations of those I follow on blogger, inspirational!
