Wedding Day


Hope Everyone is well, I have a card and tag to share with you today, this is a Custom Order for my first cousin who lives in USA and is getting married next month. His name is Parus (pronounced Paris) and is fiancee is Sara.

I used this gorgeous "Lili Of The Valley" stamp coloured with pro markers, The beads and resin corner are from "Live Love Crafts" and the lace, flowers and ribbon from "The Ribbon Girls". I have also used my circle nesties and rose embossing folder.
The sentiments were computer generated.

The tag was made with matching papers, all design papers used are from the "Prima - En Francais" collection. I have distressed the edges of paper and card and added some Shabby White Enamel frantage.
Sentiment computer generated.

Thanks for looking.

The Corrosive Challenge - New Beginnings

Tuesday, 7 January 2014


Good Evening everyone, I have a card to share with you all. I was inspired by the new challenge over at "Live Love Crafts" which is "PeErfume". I made a card based around my favourite perfume "Honey" by Marc Jacobs.

As you can see I have incorporated the colours, patterns, pearls and butterflies into my card. I have used this gorgeous "Saturated Canary" image called "Ceridwen" and coloured her with my promarkers. Then used my NEW Shabby Enamel White Frantage powders (could say i got a little carried away lol).

The sentiment I used is from "Pink Petticoat" and says "Fluttering By to say Hi"
The frantage and pearls are from "Live LoveCrafts", the roses are from "The Ribbon Girl" and the butterflies were created with a "Marianne Creatables Die", design papers were from my stash.

Thank you for looking.

New Year...New Life

Well Happy New Year Everyone,

I have been locked away crafting all day, desperately trying to ignore the storms going on outside. I have really enjoyed myself using lots of old stash, new frantage powders and new roses and pearls. I have made an exploding box card for a Baby Girl.

The papers are beautiful vintage style design by Kaiser Crafts - Mittens and I used a Lili Of The Valley Stamp. (I apologise for the photo quality need to re-do these in a better light).

I have used Roses, lace, ribbon and pearls all from Ribbon Girl in contrasting shades of pink, Cream and Coffee.

The butterflies were created with a mariannes die and i used shabby white enamel frantage on them and beads in the centre.

The sentiments were computer generated and the poem was from the internet.  I've just really enjoyed getting lost in my creativeness today. Speaking of storms here's a photo of todays high tide. We have been on Red alert for coastal flooding here in Cumbria - not been very good weather wise.

Thanks For Looking and stay safe out there.
