Shabby Chic Explosion Box

Hello everyone! I hope that yo are having a wonderful week. Today I am sharing a project that I have created using  the French Roses Collection from Megs Garden.

 I decided to create an explosion box, as I wanted to feature the ephemera (cut and create elements of the collection), lace and also beautiful flowers that coordinate so beautifully with this collection.

The centrepiece of my project is the cake. It features lace, pearls and flowers from Megs Garden.
On all of my panels, I used a circular Marianne Design die as my base and built up from it. Here I added a clock ephemera element as my focal image and added some flowers and a butterfly.

 Adding a flourish and flowers adds a a softness to each page and an overall cohesion to the panels.

When selecting my images, I selected pairs...two florals and two non florals...for balance.

Hot Mess Canvas Tutorial

Hello everyone! I hope that you have had  great week. Over the last few nights, I have been trialing this new project as I am planning to teach it as a co-curricular lesson with some students at school. It's been one which I have been keen to have a try and it's very easy to create. It's messy but fun- aptly named a hot mess!

I selected a free svg file of a dream catcher as my image and cut it out using Cricut removable vinyl on my Silhouette Cameo. I used a selection of Kaisercraft acrylic paints and painted my 'hot mess' of squares and rectangles over my canvas using a paintbrush. After 24 hours, I transferred my design onto my canvas using contact paper then sealed my design with a thin layer of white Kaisercraft paint, then covered the entire canvas in multiple layers of white paint until the colours had disappeared.

Leaving the canvas to dry for another 24 hours, I removed the vinyl design, to reveal the mutli-coloured dream catcher.

Below is the video tutorial demonstrating this technique.

Hello everyone! I hope you are well. Today I am sharing a card that I have made using papers and products from the Rosabella Collection by Kaisercraft.I kept the design basic so that this could be an all occasion card in my stash for when I need a go to card for an unexpected extra something!

I used some of the collectables along with the paper blooms to embellish my card to add to the vintage feel which I love. I used foam tape to add dimension to my layers as well.

Heartfelt Wishes

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. Today I am sharing a card which features dies and stamps. I love the detail in the Altenew stamps and in particular one of my favourites is the Vintage Roses set. I have made a few cards in the past using this set and I manage to find new ways to showcase the stamped flowers in a configuration that I am pleased with.

My first layer is a complimentary pink cardstock followed by Spellbinders die cut which is adhered with foam tape. A pink oval followed by a white oval and then the two fishtail flags are layered on top. I adhered the ovals with foam tape, as well as the leaves to add dimension and depth to my card. Finally I added the flowers and some sequins to complete.


Stamp: Altenew Vintage Roses, Hero Arts Everyday Messages

Paper: Kaisercraft Coconut and Musk Cardstock

Ink: Altenew Frosty Pink, Cotton Candy, Coral Berry, Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Evergreen, Versafine Onxy Black Ink

Just Because

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a great week. Lately I have found that I have lost my mojo....burnt out. No motivation whatsoever. Should be thinking about things for school (new grade), making craft projects as I have free time being on school holidays but NOPE.... nothing....zilch...a big fat ZERO. The end of last year was so many deadlines, my time was dictated to the minute in order to get everything finished, then I had to host Christmas and you get the picture rush rush rush.

In order to break my cycle I brought out the markers, popped on some tunes on Spotify and started to colour. It seems to be therapy for me. I made two cards as a result. I think the drought is starting to crack. I have made a card that is not my usual style but it was just created for enjoyment.

I stamped my images and heat embossed using white embossing powder. I then used Zig Markers to colour my images in. I used some cardstock as borders and that is all.


Stamps: Altenew Beautiful Day, Hero Arts Many Messages, My Favourite Things Distressed Patterns
