First Challenge - Tilda and Co

This is my contribution to the first challenge on Tilda & Co. I made one of these Wish List books for my friend as a Christmas present and promised myself I would make one for myself but with more pages in!! The one I made for my friend was in natural colours (if you missed it, then it's under the label of Books) but decided to go for something really girly for myself....that's what comes from living in a house full of men!!


The challenge this week was to use a Magnolia image and flowers. I cut the covers myself from self-adhesive board and covered them in Karen Foster paper. The insides of the covers were lined with a cream K & Co embossed card. I embossed a piece of pink Bazzill c.s. with Cuttlebug swirls embossing folder and layered that onto some more darker pink Bazzill card. My image was coloured with Brushables with a little sparkle added to her wings. Ribbon, brads and flowers were added as embellishments and the lettering was cut on my Cricut with the George & Basic Shapes cartridge. Finally, I fixed it all together with my Bind It All.

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.



Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.
