Exciting News

Hello again everyone, 2 posts in one day that doesnt happen often does it lol.
If you are looking for my earlier post for Noor Design UK click here ;-)

Ok so a few weeks ago I was contacted by the lovely Sandie & asked if I would like to be Guest Designer for La La Land Crafts for 3 months............would I are you kidding!!!!! Seriously I was sooooooo excited I couldn't type yes fast enough.
Then as it got close nerves kicked in & so now whilst still be excited I'm also incredibly nervous.

Anyway without anymore babble I am on Team Friday & this week our challenege is 
Strawberry & Cream.
I went with the colours......although Strawberry is one of my favourite fruits mmmmm. I made a gift set, a card with a matching little gift box. The card is smaller than normal so I
kept the embellishing on the low ;-)
The awesome stamp is 'Selfie Mollie' & I coloured her with distress inks.....I have actually coloured her up 3 times as I lurve this stamp ;-)
Colours used will be at the bottom of the post.
The papers are actually Maja Design 'A Gift For You', which shows that some papers can be used all year round.
In the top left square we have  a resin frame with 'Friend' in it which was cut from a scrap of DP. In the larger square I have used one of LLLC's fabulous Butterfly dies & added a red rose to the centre.
Flowers are from Noor Design UK.
Used some gorgeous lace & tulle trim & attached it along the bottom of the fabulous fence.
The little matching gift bag/box I made using my Silhouette Cameo.......yes hubster brought me one & I LOVE IT!! This is what I made with it, I got the template from the Silhouette Store.
Used more fabulous La La Land Crafts dies, they really are awesome dies, cut brilliantly every single time.

Colours used for Selfie Mollie are.........
Skin - Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose
Hair - Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
Dress & Boots - Fired Brick, Black Soot, Pumice Stone

Sweet Little Girl

Hello everyone how are you all?
I thought I better start posting these creations I've made & still not shown on here. I've problems with my laptop these last few days as it got a very bad virus. Luckily I scheduled my DT post last week.
Anyway this is a card I made a few weeks ago, I soooooo love La La Land Craft baby images....ok all their images & their dies are to die for ;-)
The papers are my favourite baby papers EVER!! Yep they are Maja Design 'Vintage Baby' I've used 12x12 'Precious' & 12x12 'Our Little Miracle'. I've used a Go-Kreate die for the shapes & machine stitched every layer.

I've used quite a few dies on this card most of them are Magnolia from the doo-hickey sets, I have used dies from Volume 8, volume 9 & volume 10. 
The 2 Heart balloons in the top right corner are from Volume 10 & Tracy has some of these sets in her store this set its awesome!!! Pop on over here to order it as once they are gone.....they really are gone!!

This is the inside to match the front so you can see the papers better before I put a place to write on.
The little rabbit there is from Magnolia Club Set Volume 8 & I've just used the reverse sides of the papers I've used.

Ok the super cute baby is 'Sleeping Marci' from La La Land Crafts & I coloured her with distress markers & refills on Fabriano Extra White Smooth....OMG I love this more than Langton!! You can of course get this fantastic paper here. Now I coloured her weeks ago but I can tell which colours I've used......
Skin - Vintage Photo & Tattered Rose
Clothes, hat & booties - Victorian Velvet, Pumice Stone 
I added Glitter to her dummy/pacifier & the tassels on her hat.
She has been fussy cut out & then placed onto Little Darlings Gilded Oval die.

Flowers are of course WOC from Noor Design UK as are the little pomegranates, love these!! In the bottom right corner I've used a La La Land Die called 'Honeycomb' but filled in some of the can see it better on the first photo.
The leaves are from a die from Magnolia Volume 9. Sentiment is from Maja Design Vintage Baby Die-Cuts.
Can you believe I added no lace to a girl card.....I didnt realise til I took photo's...though you wouldnt have been able see the lace anyway lol.

Ok thats it from me got a busy week as we go away on holiday on monday for a week....its my birthday that week as well so it will be lovely & the whole family is going :-)

Noor Design UK DT Post

Hello everyone, how are you all?
Well its a beautiful Saturday morning when I'm scheduling this post, I think summer has finally reached us by the North Sea here yayyyy. I actually made the card a week ago using summery goodness from Noor Design UK.
All links to products used at the bottom of the post.

I've used the gorgeous new paper from Lemoncraft called 'Gorgeous Spring'...these really are so pretty & colourful....the sunny day made we want use them lol.
Have you seen that pretty pink lace.......isn't it beautiful

I have used some fabulous Scrapiniec which I lurve sooooo much, they are perfect to keep in for making cards with or without images. Especially the larger ones that are great for people who dont like images....I have lots & still want more lol.
I painted the 'Love Life' with gesso. The clock face is Prima & the doily underneath the clock face I cut out from one of the sheets of 'Everyday Spring' & then placed a Scrapiniec clock in the centre.

I have used lots of gorgeous flowers from Noor Design UK & added pearl string in amongst them. I've also used one of my favourite leaf dies & the paper for the leaf I used the co-ordinating paper from the set.

Thank you for stopping by.
Take care & big hugs
