Cherish The Way You Sparkle

Hello Again!

Sharing another layout created with 49 and Market papers and flowers - Once again I have combined papers from Tattered Garden with Flower Fairies: 
I added lots of fussy cut elements under and around the photo
Some pretty blooms from a Potpourri mix were also clustered over the fussy cut elements - these flowers are so sweet and I really like the different sized blooms in these mixes. I also softened some of the blooms with white gesso.
A berry stem from a Botanical Blends and a 2Crafty Chipboard flourish were also tucked in.

Thanks so much for dropping by,

Till next time,

Believe in Magic

Hello Again,

Popping in with another layout that I recently made with some beautiful 49 and Market patterned papers and flowers.
I created a little woodland theme by combining Tattered Path with fussy cut elements from the Flower Fairies collection:


I cut up the brick wall from the 12 x 12 packaging of the Dragonfly Revolution Layered Embellishments and attached this to the background paper - Tattered Garden 'Tattered Playground'.
A floral Border around the photo was created by bending a Vine    
 Fussy cut elements from Flower Fairies papers were layered and clustered around the photo 

Coordinating flowers from Botanicals in Cerise and Sage were layered over the top and amongst the fussy cut elements and 2Crafty Chipboard flourishes

Till next time,

Hello!

Popping in today to share a layout that I recently created with the gorgeous 49 and Market Cottage Life papers and coordinating flowers.  My eldest girl has big dreams - Miss E may you always dream and pursue them.  Always believe and always know that your

'Dreams Have No Limits'

These papers are from the Cottage Life Collection - aren't they just a joy of floral beauty!
I got scissor happy once again and added lots of fussy cut elements with beautiful coordinating blooms from the Botanical Blends in Sage and Cerise.


A pretty 2Crafty Chipboard flourish adds a little elegance for the floral cluster to rest upon.
You will also spy a sweet flower fairy amongst the garden of flowers - this one was cut from the Flower Fairies Looking Through - The Cut Outs.

Unicorn Magic

Hello!

And it's finished!... 
Popping in to share with you my magical unicorn project that I have been working on.
I was so so excited when I saw this unicorn MDF which Kaisercraft recently released. I went to my creative happy place with this one! 

I combined lots of gorgeous 49 and Market flowers with 49 and Market Flower Fairy patterned papers and lots of 2Crafty Chipboard

I used chipboard tree branches to build up the unicorn's mane along with layers of fussy cut floral elements, chipboard stars, leaves and pretty flowers.

The unicorn horn, ear and eye were sculpted with Creative Paperclay

A Chipboard star frame was cut up and placed to form an unicorn bridle.  Mini stars were also scattered randomly over the background. 

And lots of glitter sparkle - as unicorns and glitter go hand in hand!

I had so much fun creating this - it has headed off now, straight to it's forever home!

Thanks so much for dropping by,

Take Flight

Hello!

Popping in with another altered project to share - this one was created for 2Crafty Chipboard when I was on their Design Team last year.

One of my girls was gifted a mini alphabet light up letter from Typo - of course I kept the box (as you do when you are a paper crafter) as it was so cool.  So here it is - it has now been given a makeover with lots of Graphic 45 Steampunk and 2Crafty Chipboard loveliness.

"Take Flight"  

I covered the box with papers from the Steampunk Debutante Collection - though I did leave the sides the box unaltered as this was where all the cool manufacturing printed stuff was :)

A peek a boo effect was created - I layered lots of fussy cut elements with chipboard and metal pieces on the inside.  Dimension was created with the layers and the help of foam tape.

A metallic look was given to the large chipboard Fanciful Butterfly with black ink, patina and antique gold shimmer sprays.
Other chipboard pieces were inked black then lightly dabbed with a little metallic gold paint. 

A few metal elements were also added to the front and along the sides of the box along with steampunk inspired 2Crafty Chipboard.
