Anything Goes At La La Land Crafts

Hello everyone how are you? Wow we have been getting some lovely weather recently.......I think summer may finally be here by the sea.....but ssshhhh we dont want scare him away.

So lets talk about why I'm really here's to show my creation for the La La Land Crafts Blog & this week the theme for us girlies was 'Anything Goes'.........ya gotta lurve those themes ;-)

Pic heavy I'm afraid ;-)
So I made a gift set for a baby...........I love making baby cards I think they are my favourite & why not when LLLC do the most gorgeous babies.

Isn't this sweet little boy just the most darling baby......
Paper are of course my favourite baby papers..........yep Maja Design Vintage Baby & I've used all 12x12 sheets on this set.

Inisde I used the same paper & added 2 die cuts in there as well. Of course all papers have been machine stitched all around.

The Rocking Horse I cut out twice to layer it up. On the small tag I placed 2 balloons which I fussy cut out of some matching paper, the smaller balloon I popped on foam pads to raise it up.

This is the top of the matching gift box & again I've used all matching papers. The rattle I cut out twice & the 2nd one I cut using the paper but just added a little bit of it....just a splash of blue ;-)

The gift box could be used for anything small....little socks or even one of those identity bracelets.....most people love them. The bracelet here is just for photo purposes of course ;-)

I also added a tag which is cut form the paper set & added a charm.
All papers as you can see have also been stitched on the box as well.

Noor Design UK DT Card - With Love On Your Wedding

Hello everyone, how are you all.
I'm here again today with another Wedding Card, this one however I has no coloured image, only the uber gorgeous Scrapiniec that I cant get enough of ;-)
I've used the new super gorgeous, super delicious Lemoncraft 'Just Love Me' paper, oh my this really is so pretty & I made sure I brought both sizes. For this I've used 12x12 sheets which will be in the links at the bottom of the post.

Isn't this Wedding Couple just divine....yes the bridge also comes with it.....when Tracy sent me this in the DT pack it was one of the first things play with........after some dies that is ;-)
I've added Pearl Dots using the pearl pen here & there to add a bit of something extra.....most brides have pearls on their wedding day.

I've used 2 lots of leaves, the larger one being from Doohickey Volume 9. I've kept the flowers to small clusters as I didnt want to over power the beautiful Scrapiniec.
Ooops forgot to add this in before I did the Inlinkz. On the inside I decorated to match the front as always & added the 'Wedding Text' die with the same matching paper.
I've been saving this pleated tulle for something special, I have the ivory aside for something special too which I'm in the you another time ;-)
This stuff really is so pretty & perfect for wedding cards....ok perfect for most crafts to be honest.
I also added some Rose Trim & some Pearl String along the top of the tulle.
You can also see the dimension of the bridge as I popped it onto the rose to lift it up.

Hubster recently brought me lots of new crafty goodies & I finally got around to buying that gorgeous die that the couple are placed on.......isn;t it just divine, I love it!!! Think that may be used quite a bit ;-)
Hope you like my pretty pale pink wedding card........for those pink ladies out there ;-)
