Sweet Birthday Girl


It's time for another Magnolia Down Under Challenge! This fortnight's theme is BINGO. Lots of Fun.

All you have to do is pick three things which form a line and make a card accordingly! Kylie has made a really cool game board which I'm sure you'll love!

My card is for Ruby, not my Ruby, but her friend Ruby, who is had her 6th Birthday party last weekend. I have used an older Tilda - Tilda with Corkscrews from the Once Upon a Time Collection in 2013, my Flower Cloud is from the With Love collection 2013. 

I've coloured her up with my copics and tried to do some folds in her dress but, alas I'm rather rusty with my copics, but I guess it doesn't look too bad! 

As per the Bingo game board, I picked - Fancy Folds so I made a gate fold card. I haven't made one of these for a while, but I love how it turns out. I also picked Masking, so of course Tilda and the Cloud has that covered. The other is Make your own embellishments! WOW! that was fun, but yeah took a while! Anyway I made all my flowers. The Dies I used are Memory Box Cherry Blossom, and a little flower Doo Hickey. My Key is also a Doo Hickey and its from the last Doo Hickey Club 3 that came out just before Christmas. I cut it 3 times to make it thicker and stand out a little more, plus it makes it stronger for the string to be tied on!

My Tulle trim is from Live and Love Crafts, the ribbon is seam binding. The little wooden heart is also from Live and Love Crafts. My Number is a Thickers sticker and the little letter tile stickers are from Tim Holtz. I've used my Spellbinder dies on there too.

Here is the inside:

I've used the Butterfly dies from Spellbinder to make the lovely butterflies. I've used gold glitter card for the top layer and some blue pattered paper for the bottom. My Papers I used are Prima Delight. 

So there you go! I hope you will come along and play too, its heaps of fun and here is the game board.

Happy New Year 2015

Hi There!!

Hope you have all got over your new year celebrations without too many headaches! I didn't see in the new year.... I was in dreamland LOL

Yesterday I did some playing around with my Prima Doll stamps.... I love these little gals and how versatile they are. So I made a tag.  
This is actually my second tag using these cute stamps but I'll show the one I did yesterday first and then my first Prima Doll tag below (I actually made it last year... but oh well, I haven't blogged it yet!)

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out! I've used a bunch of different things on my tag, lets see: Jo Sonja texture paste, and Finnabair Texture Paste in gold crackle. Hessian/burlap, white rose trim, pink pom pom trim, Prima flowers, as well as a couple I had lying around on my desk! Prima resin butterfly, Prima zip pull, Tim Holtz film strip, pearls, a pearl swirl, Doily, chippy wings, MFT chicken wire die, pink seam binding, and a fluffy stringy trim. The words are from Collections Elements. My paper piecing is with Crate Paper fourteen. Oh my Stencils I used with the texture paste are Tim Holtz too. 

And here is my first Prima Doll tag, I was pretty happy with how this one turned out too, but I think I like the one I made yesterday better now! 

So this one has a bunch of stuff on it too: MFT Chicken wire die, and Memory Box die, Peacock feathers,(yeah the baby feathers from a peacock) Collections Elements words, Lace, Pearl Trim, Prima Flowers, pink ribbon, Tim Holtz washi tape, Finnabair texture paint in white sand. The stencil was burlap by Tim Holtz. My rusty heart is from Live and Love Crafts and I tied linen tread around it. There is some cheese cloth on there as well. The Eiffel Tower pic is a random - not sure who made those, but I bought a packet with all these cool pic's in it from my local scrap shop. I think they are intended for cards as a topper, but they pretty cool I think they can be used anywhere! 

So there you go, something a little different from me! Well not really, I feel I am drifting back to my scrappy layout days which is originally why I got into paper crafting. I'm thinking in 2015 your going to see less cards and more layouts - tags - all sorts really on my blog! Maybe even some full on mixed media, I'm thinking about giving that a go, but I'm a little scared on how its going to turn out! I really want some Faber Castell Gelatos - which I do have in my basket from Anna's Craft Cupboard - I'm thinking I might have to check out and get it on its way to my hot little hands LOL

Happy Summer Days!
