Lovely Hanglar Or Sweet Magnolia

EDITED.....This is late posting so its written up as though it went live at the beginning of the month on the 5th as thats when it was written up but not published. So sorry this is late peeps.

Hello there, hope you are all having a fabby weekend. 
I have the family here today for the day & for tea which is fab & we will be sorting out our main holiday & where we are all going.....I love that my sons & my daughter in law & grandchildren still want to come away with their parents all the time. 

Ok enough babble & on with the show........the show....well you get to feast your eyes on some very VERY serious talent over at Lovely Hanglar Or Sweet Magnolia as my DT teamies are come join in the show........its easy
.......see told ya!! 

I received the new Recipe Collection & I think I coloured up 3 of them that night I think after much thought I decided this one would go on a creation first....
Isn't she fab!!! I also used gorgeous Maja Design papers from the Vintage Romance collection. I used 12x12 sheets from Noor Design UK.
Do you notice something in the photo............yep the paperclip that I used while the glue was drying I forgot take it off.....however later I did realise so a couple dont have it on lol....Yeah I was too lazy retake all the photo's lol.
The dies are mostly from the Recipe Collection, I used 'Recipe Card', 'Glass With Signs' (sentiment) & 'Beater & Rolling Pin'. Other Magnolia dies used are Bride Bow. & the leaves are also Magnolia.

As you can see this is not a card, I made a little choccy/sweety box for a gift to someone.....however I seemed to have forgotten take pics of the inside & the ones of the back turned out blur........Yeah I need a professional photographer lol.
The image was cut out using a La La Land Tag die.

The stamp from the Recipe Collection is called 'Made With Love Tilda' so it seemed perfect to add the sentiment from Stempelglede 'Made With Love'. I stamped Tilda with Brown Stazon on Fabriano paper & coloured her with distress ink refills & then masked her off & stamped the love text which is also a Magnolia stamp.
I also added bits of fran-tage to make it look like bits of flour over her hair & face etc.......come on cake makers we all get flour dad certainly did lol....yeah & I do hee hee.
I also added stardust stickles to the icing on her cake.......sparkly cake.

The little cute rolling pin is from my stash which I've had forever......surprising what we find in our treasure troves. In the top left corner I've used a Marianne die & flowers are from Noor Design UK. Seam Binding is from my stash.

Well thats it from me. Hope you will pop on over see my teamies creations they are sooooo darn talented, I adore them all.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I'm away for the week after today so will catch with you when I'm back.

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
Thanks for stopping by

Noor Design UK DT Card

Helloooooo everyone, Happy Valentine's Day!!!
Do any of you have anything romantic planned? What ever you are doing I hope you are with the ones you love.

I'm here today with my DT Card for the Noor Design UK Blog using lots of yummy products from Tracy' Store & I think all the girls are truly loving this gorgeous new collection from Pion Design.....yes of course I mean Songbird's Secret.
Now although I've hidden most of it you can just see at thr top & bottom that the 2nd layer is actually circular made with the Dutch Doobadoo Circle stencil.

I've used 3 lots of beautiful lace on this card. On the top corner here I used the White Rosyleaf lace but just cut off 1 flower & 2 leaves form the end.........I think it makes a beautiful piece like this.
I've also made 2 bows using white seam binding & blue seam binding & of course added a bit of bling in the centre.

On the other top corner I added a doily using a Little Darlings die & a couple of flowers. The large white flower I made using foam miran, making just a simpler flower this time....... Thats what I love about foamiran you can make it as simple or as fussy as you want.

Along the bottom I added one of my favourite laces & then added Chiffon Rose either side of the image.

The image I cut from Images From The Past & then layered it on a piece I cut from Memory Notes & then added Double Row Teardrop Pearl trim along the top & bottom & layered it on some corruagted cardboard painted with gesso. I also added touches of gesso here & there to flowers & leaves etc.

The little bird & butterfly are from my stash.

Thats it from me but I will be back as although most of my scheduled posts worked I've realised today that my post for Lovely Hanglar & Sweet Magnolia didnt post so will have to publish that later :-(

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Huge hugs to all
