Mr & Mrs Together Forever

Hello everyone how are you all?
The plan today was get the front garden done, scarify the lawn, remove flowers & weed etc but its wet & very miserable :-( Perfect day to stay inside & get work done then ;-)

So I have a card today that I made quite a few weeks ago. When I showed my last LOTV card with a simply print I did say the next one would be a stamped it is, or one of them as I have a another done lol.

This time I thought I would make a Wedding card or it could even suit as an Anniversary card maybe.
Sorry for the pics again we've packed the big computer up to move to another room & the software to use with the camera is on there & not my I'm still using my phone :-(

I love these love birds, they are so darn cute.........shame it took me so long to use them lol. They are from Magnolia Doo-Hickey Volume 3.
The flowers are WOC & you can also see a doily peeking out too.

I added Mr & Mrs Scrapiniec to the corner & under the flowers I added the Eiffel Tower also from Volume 3. 
Flowers again are WOC & the leaves are Magnolia Parsley & Rocket Salad.

The fabulous cute image is a LOTV stamp called 'Wedding Couple' & I coloured it with distress ink refills.
I cut the image out using Gummiapan 'Nesting Stitched Circles' & matted it onto larger sizes underneath including a circle of Maja Design.
I also added a couple of pearl hearts as added love ;-)

I cut 2 hearts using a Magnolia die, I cut 1 in white cardstock & 1 in co-ordinating Maja Design paper, I added Tim Holtz words to the white cardstock & added a brad.
So when you swing the patterned heart out it reads 'Together Forever', kinda like a hidden message.

As always inside is decorated to match the front. Paper I've used is a Maja Design collection which is probably my favourite one, I won September Mood Board & I also won this I have lots more now lol.
It is of course 'Summertime' 12x12 & I used a Go-Kreate die for the card. As always the papers have been machine stitched.
The lace is from my stash as are the doilies.

Thats it form me but thank you so much for stopping by, it really means a lot.

Swedish House Crafts DT Card

Hello everyone, today I'm sharing with you my latest creation using yummy products from Swedish House Crafts.

I've been thinking of all the Christmas creating I need to do lately and that brought me to the time after Christmas, New Year. So I thought I would make a table top calendar ready for the New Year.
(Links to items used will be at the bottom of the post.)
I have used the gorgeous Maja Design Denim & Friends Collection, I love this collection so much, it really can be used for almost any occasion. I have machine stitched both layers.

I added layers using Gummiapan Stitched Banners dies, this was just to add a bit of interest. The leaves were made using Magnolia Grandpa's Flower Leaf. The calendars I just got from Ebay.

I also decorated the back, some desks and tables can be seen from all angles so I didn't want the back to look boring. I am going to put a quote on it as well.....just depends where its going lol.

I added Gummiapan Doodle Circle dies as these are fab for adding more interest to any project, I love them. For the image I wasn't originally going to use this one, I had coloured up another Tilda, however she was Christmassy and Christmassy is not an all year thing. So I went with this gorgeous Tilda With Umbrella Daisy, I coloured her dress with Weathered Wood to make it look kinda denim to go with the papers. I coloured her with distress ink refills and added Stardust Stickles to the centre of the daisy and her hair bow. Then I cut her out using Gummiapan Stitched Rectangle dies.

I have made the calendar folding so it folds flat for posting. All lace and flowers are from my stash. I used the co-ordinating Maja Design card stock for layers behind the image and the calendar, also for the doodle circles and leaves.

Thank you for stopping by
