Noor Design UK DT Project

Hello everyone I'm here today with my Noor Design DT Project. So I thought I would share some Easter Baskets I made for my grandchildren.
For the purpose of the pics I've just added foam eggs but I will be putting choccy eggs & bunnies in them ;-)
TBH I was a wee bit nervous about making these.............I have no idea why tbh as they really are so easy to make....... Well if I can make them, then anyone can lol.
Ok so as I have 2 grandchildren I have made 2 baskets, 1 for a boy & 1 for a girl lol.
Ok so we have a Blue Basker for Arjay & a Pink Basket for Payton. I have used the fabulous Dutch Doobadoo Card Art Basket to make these baskets, it really is awesome!!

Ok so I've made little differences to each basket. On Arjay's basket I stamped Silhouette Flowers in brown memento on each end of the basket. On Payton's basket I used the Mask Art Flowers & Structure Paste to add random flowers over each end.

I added Structure paste all around the top rim of Arjay's basket & I've also added random flowers with the mask again to the front with Structure Paste on Payton's......although its hard to see :-(

This is the front of Arjay's basket, although I have done the same front & back so no matter how you look at it, its the same each way.
I've added Cutting & Embossing Border die 0149 to the centre in Kraft card & added a flower & Leaf die 0332, 1 in white & 1 in kraft card.
The little wooden letter 'A' is from my stash & of course is for 'Arjay' ;-)

Ok so here we have the front of Payton's basket, also decorated the same each side.
We have again the same Border die 0149 in the centre & also I've made a Flower with the Floral Flourishes Flower die No.3, I used 3 of the 4 layers & added a button to the centre.
The wooden leaf & wooden heart are from my stash which I also covered in Gesso.

The paper for the baskets I've used Maja Design from LLC but the handles I've used the Vintage Wood Paper bloc & used a Martha Stewart punch to cut the fancy edge ;-)

Well that's it form me lovelies, hope you like my Easter Project for my grandbabies today. Perhaps treat yourself to some easter goodies in the form of Noor Design & Dutch Doobadoo from the Noor Design UK shop right here...........go on fill that basket lol.

Scheduled post so hoping its worked...
Tatty bye & take care
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxxxxx

Live & Love Crafts DT Project - Reb'l Fleur

Hello everyone how are you all? Well its Saturday so it means it's my (Vicky) turn to post yayyyyyy. Ok as you know us girlies had to use the new gorgeous papers from Reprint, Romance In sweden........oh the sheer torture, I mean what a tough job us girls have ;-) Yeah right lol.
Ok so this week I've been making packaging for my daughter's easter presents, as she can't eat food obviously she cant have eggs :-(
So today I have made her a Gift Bag,(well it was Monday when I started making it & finally finished it Thursday lol), it will also hang in her room after of course so it needed to be on the shabby chic side & well GIRLY lol...........
To match the gift box I made her the other day I've used a Magnolia stamp.........yeah like I need an excuse anyway lol. She does smile when she sees these cuties though ;-)

Ok so I've kept the back simple as it will not really been seen much once it's hanging in her bedroom.
I've used 2 of the Reprint paper, tbh as soon as I saw the gingham type one.......well a whole lotta swooning was going on.......I lurve gingham!! I've also used one of the Reprint Romance Labels for the sentiment on the back............of course as soon as I saw this one it was definately Natalie.

Of course added lots of beautiful flowers. I've also added a gorgeous Pin at the top of the flowers & at the edge of the image I added a small Cameo. The dies I've used are Magnolia Swirl & Leaf & also the Sprawling Ferns.

I added a pocket for a tag cut with a Magnolia die, added a Hanger, Shabby Seam Binding, a gorgeous blingy button & some more flowers. There is also a Wooden Heart Button hidden there covered in Gesso. 

As with her giftbox I added a Butterfly made from a Spellbinder's die & added one of the fabulous Pen Nib's to the centre. Of course lots of things got the Gesso treatment lol.
You can also see the slimmer gorgeous blingy lace I used on top better in this pic.
The maggie stamp I've used is one of my faves tbh & she holds a rose to match the sentiment. She is called 'Tilda With Cross Necklace' & I coloured her entirely with re-inkers. I'm only just starting to do this so still learning but loving as well.
I also added a Postage stamp also Magnolia & wee bits of Shabby Pink Fran-Tage.
Here is a pic with the tag out & I also used another of my fave stamps, Stempelglede of course. Boy do I love those!! I've used Doilies & 4 different types of gorgeous BEAUTIFUL lace........
Ok so this is why is my heading is called what it is, it's Natalie's new perfume. This is what the giftbag is for, a large bottle of Rhianna Perfume.........Reb'l Fleur ;-) Yes it does fit in I promise you, also it will be wrapped before it goes in the bag as well.

If you would like to see why this post has the heading & what's going into this bag then pop on over to my blog ;-)

Well that's it from me, it's absolutely pouring it down up here by the sea. As for building works well it's going as well as can be expected. the building company is fabulous though............but barely drinks tea & coffee......that;s not right for builder's surely lol.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
