La La Land Crafts

Hello everyone.....yayyyyy its Friday not only is it the weekend but me & my hubster are going away for the weekend just the 2 of us........I think its only ever the 2nd or 3rd time we've gone away without the family but the family couldnt make it this weekend & Natalie is away to respite for 3 days......looking forward to some quality time though.

Anyhoo I'm here today with my DT card for La La Land Crafts & this week our theme was Anything I did have something else planned but its been one of those weeks & didnt get time to finish it...
So here is my back-up for when all else fails lol.
No I know no image :-0 However I have used fabulous dies!! I love these dies, they are awesome for anyone getting a new doggy, which is what my card is for ;-)
The paper is Aunthentique, its called Devoted I think & perfect for our pet projects.
All layers have been machine stitched as always.
You can also see the Paw Border at the top better on this piccy.

I lurve this little dog house, its so cute!!. I also used the paw inserts to put a little blue paw print.
The grass I used Maja Design Summertime paper for that.

Inside decorated as always to co-ordinate with the front. I also added double ruffle trim along the bottom from Noor Design UK.

LLLC Dies used...........

New Challenge At Deep Ocean Challenges

Hello everyone, back again with my 2nd post today. If you want to see my DT post for Noor Design UK scroll down.
Ok so onto my next DT post & I am back with the talented girlies over at Deep Ocean Challenges woooooo hooooooo, missed these gals.
Ok the new challenge is perfect for the time of year we are in........
..........told ya it was perfect ;-)
I made a Pop-Up box with the latest collection of Magnolia stamps & Maja Design Summertime papers.......I'm sure these collections were made for each other ;-)
On this panel I put a few flags, inked the edges with Weathered Wood distress ink & tied together with blue waxed cord & added a teeny shell ;-)
The postage stamp I cut from the Maja Design Summertime Die-Cuts

On this side I cut out a boat, its from a die I've barely used, I think its Die-Versions maybe...I added matching paper on part of the boat but left the sails white.
I added a Anchor & a boat steering wheel charm.

I added Seaweed inside & at the back an image cut from the Die-Cuts sheet. I also added a seahorse.

At the back I decorated it of course lol........its me, but at the last minute....after taking photo's lol, I decided to add somewhere to put a tag. I attached a bit of co-ordinating paper for the large tag. On the paper I then added a bit of Ruffled Lace trim, love this stuff, to accomodate a smaller tag.

For the tags I decided make some using Little Darlings Stitched Flags & added co-ordinating paper folded over at the top, an eyelet & some waxed cord.

The gorgeous paper I used is Maja Design Summertime 'Cute Summer Dress'.
The Magnolia stamps I used are 'Tilda In The Wind' & 'Sunbathe Tilda' from the Seaside collection.
They are coloured with distress markers & refills, Sunbathe Tilda had her dress paper pieced.

Pop on over to the Deep Ocean Challenge blog to see my teamies uber fantastic creations.....I am so lucky to work with such talented girlies on all my DT's.

Thanks for stopping by, take care.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

Noor Design UK DT Cards

Hi everyone I have 2 projects to show you today for the Noor Design UK Blog one with a stamped image & the other without.
The first one I will show you a card I made with the gorgeous Scrapiniec Chandelier.....I love these chipboard shapes & words.....perfect for anyone who does not like stamped images or perfect for quicker cards.
I sprayed the Chandelier with white spray paint, I love these because you can spray them, paint them, ink them or leave them as they come. I chose spray as it leaves a nice sheen to it when its dry.

For the edge I used a Crealies die. The paper is the gorgeous Maja Design Vintage Romance which Tracy has in her store, such a gorgeous they always are ;-)

I have added lace along the top but I hid most of the front oops. However the inside is decorated the same so you can just see it at the top inside lol. The envelopes are from the Magnolia Doohickey Club Kit 9. Of course I've used beautiful flowers from Noor Design & have you seen the gorgeous those!! I also added a bit more Scrapiniec at the top peeking out of the flowers, which was also sprayed white.
For my second card I used a Dutch Doobadoo Card Art A4 Swing Art template, with the beautiful Craft & You Rose Garden paper, all of which is machine stitched.
Behind the centre oval I added double layered lace

Love the folds on this & the best thing about these as they make a statement without having to put too much foofiness on ;-)
The star die-cut is from Doohickey club set 9 & the butterflies & the tag which the sentiment is on is from Club set 10..........I think Tracy still has 1 or 2 of these left.....

Added a fabulous bit of bling in the top corner, these are so so pretty!!
Also can you see the Scrapiniec leaf peeking out.

This is from the top so you can see the fold better.
How do you like this fabulous cute Whimsy stamp, I soooo love these elephants. I coloured this cutie in about 2 months ago.........shamefully its took til a week ago to put it on a card.

Thank you for stopping by, take care & enjoy your day.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
