Arctic Sweeties / Liz

Hi guys, I'm here today for Swedish House Crafts.
Well the weather has certainly turned cold enough for snow and I know some places have already had a touch of it, so in time for Christmas and in keeping with the weather Suha has got some adorable paper ranges in by Laserowe Love, this one is called Arctic Sweeties and they are so cute!!!

I created an exploding box and used the fabulous papers for both the outsides and insides, they all go together perfectly as do the images in the collection too, but more on that in a minute!!! lol
I added a gorgeous chipboard again by laser owe Love on the lid, simply adding some stickles glue here and there, as well as some handmade flowers in silk foam which is coming into store at Swedish House Crafts soon, along with some mixed berries that's in the store too,

On the box front I used this fabulous die by Gummiapan, I just love the swirly script!!!

So inside are the really cute images I mentioned,  I mean how adorable!!!

I used some more of the papers first, then I fussy cut some of the adorable images out using 3D foam behind to raise some of them up a little,

Here I fussy cut out the bear, balloons and the flags, hand drawing some strings for the balloons and a little glitter to finish it off,

Here after cutting out the images I again drew a string for the balloon and then raised the balloon up with some 3D foam, the gorgeous chipboard snowflake is again by laser owe love and I added some glitter over the top,

Here the bear is raised again with the foam pads, I left the cut out parcels flat to look like they are slightly behind and in front of him, I then used some more of the flags finishing them off with hints of glitter,

I made a pocket for some of the gorgeous tags which I simply cut out then added a little twine on the top, the top of the pocket has some more flags, parcels and a really cute penquin having fun!!!

These are fab for pressies too,

The centre piece is created using another fabulous chipboard again I simply added some glitter, I used a piece of clear acetate behind to make it stand up then I glued this onto some cheesecloth,
Again I used some more mixed berries and my handmade silk foam flower,

Vintage Baby

Hi guys, I thought I'd show you a paper mache decoration I have altered to make a vintage styled creation,

I've used some of the  laserowe Love Vintage baby papers for the base and background inner sections, then I simply fussy cut some of the fantastic images which I raised on the back with 3D foam,

The Balloons were fussy cut round then I simply fixed them in place then drew lines so they look like these adorable bears again from laser owe Love are holding them, I decided to leave the chipboards in their natural state just simply adding a self adhesive pearl effect embellishment on the bow ties,

Behind in the section you can see the papers and the fussy cut images which like I said are raised with 3D foam,

I wanted a little added interest on the frame section so I added some more fussy cut images here and there,

I did the middle section in the same way,

How cute is this bear?

On the front I added another of the chip board pieces then another fussy cut image placed slightly to one side on the front,

I finished it off with some more self adhesive effect pearls and I added one in the centre of this fussy cut image to which tied it all in,

then I simply added a few flowers displays to give added interest,

check out this and more of the fabulous paper collections by laser owe Love Suha has in store now,

Hi guys, I saw this fabulous challenge over on the Lemoncraft blog and I thought I'd give it a go, lol
the challenge is called Autumn rainbow so using what papers I had in my stash I created this,

I used a lemoncraft paper on the base from the Violet Silence collection, then used one from the Forget - me- Not collection over the top, after first using a Thinlets die on one side to cut out the brick effect, I then layered this up with some waste pieces of chipboard,

I bought this fabulous door mould from 14 craftbar and some of their air dry light clay, when dry I coloured it with some Prima acrylic paints using colours on the colour challenge,
then i went over the top with a hint of white gesso to give an aged and shabby effect,
This I also raised up so I could add some fussy cut leaves behind which came from the leaves collection again by Lemoncraft,

The flowers from my stash are from WOC and Sweet Lilac, I then finished the door off with some chipboard by Scrapiniec, cheesecloth and one of the gorgeous butterflies again by lemoncraft,

 I then used a few chipboard bricks and another cipboard piece on the top onto which I added another flower to bring the colour of the door in,

Full view again,


Happy Crafting!!

Pretty In Purple

Hi guys, as you know I love the shabby chic look so I've been having some fun creating this card using some of the gorgeous Lemon craft papers from the Violet Silence basics collection, wow do you know how hard it to find Lemon craft papers in stock!!! not easy I can tell you, lol

I made a 4.5 inch by 6.5 inch based card then used various papers from the paper pad, I layered some of these up dding 3D foam to raise them and then added some bits of  lilac voile and some chipboard pieces from my stash,

The flowers are a mixture of WOC and Sweet lilac, I coloured the tiny buds with some oil pastel to blend them into the colour scheme, i gave most of the chip boards a little hint of Vintage Photo distress ink over the top, 

I couldn't resist buying the sheet with the most adorable butterflies on too, I fussy cut it out then layered it onto the card with a couple of pieces of waste chipboard layered up underneath,
